Today was

my birthday.


I got to do one of my favorite things tonight - go to a movie with Chris. In fact, we went twice - back to back (the first time ever). Can I tell you how fun it is to walk out at the end of a movie, head back to the front counter, buy a second ticket to another feature, and walk right back in all over again.


We started off with Dan In Real Life with Steve Carrell. Loved it. Had to come home and download Let My Love Open The Door and listen to it over and over again.


Round two was American Gangster with Denzel Washington & Russell Crowe. Another really good movie.


It was a really good birthday.

    Happy Birthday Ali! I love the movies too. Thanks for the reviews...
    We saw "Heartbreak Kid" recently. Not so good., borderline X rated! A good chuckle here and there though.
    I will see you in April at Donna's event if not before.

    Although too late: a happy birthday from me!
    Thank you for me movie tips, I like to keep a list of things I need to see. American Gangster will premiere in the Netherlands on Nov. 15th, so I'm definitely going to see that one soon. No release date for the Netherlands for Dan in Real Life though :( Hopefully that will be announced soon!
    It has been years ago that I saw two movies back to back in the movie theater... I think I was still at University and I had a day-pass or something. I do however watch movies at home back-to-back, often two, but sometimes even more. I feel a layout coming on... thanks for the inspiration!
    Hugs,
    Nancy

    Happy birthday!! It sounds like you had a perfect day :D
    I'm really looking forward to Dan in Real Life - I've been listening to the soundtrack (made by Sondre Lerche, one of my favorite Norwegian singers! Whee!) all week getting geared up for it.
    Again, happy birthday - and thanks for two amazing classes on Friday. I left feeling very inspired :)

    Happy birthday Ali! Glad to hear you had an enjoyable one. Picked up my copy of your book today and have had a quick skim. Loving every bit of it so far! Wish I didn't have to watch Transformers tonight with hubbie so I could REALLY read it. When you started with "It is Ok" I was reminded of a layout I did of us with you at Kiwi Scraps last year.
