Normally we don’t dish out the dough to see movies in the theatre (always swallow hard knowing we could’ve bought a movie for the same price). But this one was different. It was worth EVERY penny and will be one we buy for our personal collection.
After seeing it, I can’t stop thinking about, The Vow.
A few nights ago we saw the preview and decided Redbox was too long to wait for this one.
With a bag full of munchies, playing footsie, and holding hands, we were set.
Within the first 5 minutes of the movie I was already in tears (a slow motion car accident scene, hit close to home). I saw myself reliving a very similar experience, back in ’09.
Ryan clenched my hand harder and sympathetically asked, “Should we leave, sweetie?” He knows how the accident will never be something I get over. It changed me.
I, like Paige (Rachel McAdams), hit the front windshield from not wearing a seatbelt. I sustained a fractured neck with paralysis on my right side for several months. However, unlike her, to incur memory loss where I couldn’t recognize my own husband, is beyond me.
In both cases, life changed forever in an instant.
If you’re hoping to see Hollywood’s typical scripted “get rich over Valentine’s weekend” flick this isn’t the one. Lots of teenage girls grumbled on their way out disappointed it wasn’t a “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” type.
It’s a real story. One that left an impact on our hearts.
Tears continued to flow for us throughout the entire movie. For me, it’s because I saw our own simply sweet love reflected on the big screen. A love, that Leo (Channing Tatum) describes as, “…a once in a lifetime type of love.”
The simplest little treat that brought tee-hee’s (heart giggles). Salty & sweet… it’s the perfect combination. Thanks, Honeyheart. xo
Have you ever been to the Melting Pot? Unfortunately, I haven’t. Ask Husby how many times I’ve whined about this topic. He’d probably roll his eyes and say, “Over priced food that we pay to cook ourselves? I don’t get it.” Duh, Husby. It’s fun and delicious AND romantic. This IS the point of the Melting Pot, no?
Well, since stubborn stinkerpants won’t budge (and because I’m not about to go dip fondue by my lonesome) I made our own spread at home. Yes, Bubba included (even if he did eat half the plate of Strawberries himself).
If only I had a video to capture all the Mmmmm’ing that was going on.
It was fun, delicious, AND definitely the highlight of our day together.
Now THAT is the real point.
Can you get over the adorable French fondue crocks? Yes, you heard me… MADE.IN.FRANCE.
Dying, right? (and so will your tongues). They were purchased HERE!
A BIG thank you to Blazing Thyme for ensuring they arrived in time! xo
