An Exceptional Day

Last Saturday, my best friend (hey Angel) and I went to see THE movie for the chick crowd. We loved it. The husbands kept the children, we went out to lunch, then the movie and finished up our exceptional "Girls' Day Out" with cool, creamy milkshakes.



The movie won't be nominated for any Oscars or be remembered for a brilliant plot. But it was sheer, grown-up fun for these two thirty-somethings. We got to revisit some of our favorite characters, drool over some lovely shoes and blush at some racy scenes. There was even an elderly couple sitting a few rows down from us which creeped us out a bit. Kind of like watching a contraband movie with your parents in the room. Unlike M, I didn't come home with less cash and more shoes. I had already purchased these lovely torture devices two days before.



I'm off to read Soozadoo's latest work. So don't expect me popping round your blogs this weekend. I have work (really, really fun work) to get done.

I hope you have enough red ink in that pen...

I ried to get tickets for that movie this weekend, but no luck. A shame, as we were kid free this weekend, and closet fan of those girls, he is.

Your shoes are like my newest find. I should take a picture, for I think they may be the same, if not, twin, shoe.

Fun day out! And I love the shoes. Great struttin' shoes.

Oh, and I've told Firegazer that since reading "Midnight..." we HAVE to add Savannah to my list of must see cities on the East Coast. That's if I ever get to do that trip...

I enjoyed it too! Pushed all the right buttons, really. I think I might want to own it when it comes out on dvd...

OK - I need to see it - I wasn't going to because I never really watched the tv show - but too many people are saying how they enjoyed the movie.

Lovely photo of you and Angel - lovely shoes too.

I am so jealous that all my blogging friends have very pretty feet for peep hole shoes and obviously take pride in pedicures etc.

Ohh we don't have a cinema but I would love to have seen it.

Team Sak, the only ones who post photos of their feet ARE the ones with time for pedicures. Have a look around, have you seen my feet? How about Tracey's without shoes? Alice? M? Stomper?

No, Melinda is the only layabout who has time.

Obviously her kids are far too well behaved.

OOOoooh...nice shoes!

I'm off to see the movie tomorrow night. Can't wait. Just to brush up on the story so far, I rewatched the whole last series on the weekend. It was agony. The shoes! The bags! The frocks!

Melinda said...

Oh I haven't had a pedicure in YEARS! That's why you don't see a closeup of my feet Aunty. Those do-it-yourself toenails are about a week overdue for a fix up!
