I have to say that last week was a challenging and long week. I'm still coming off a cold.
I know my body is telling me to rest and eat better and deal with stress... maybe one day I will listen.
I did have the opportunity for some girl time when I went- Gone with a Friend.
My dear friend C. invited the group to see Gone with the Wind for her birthday.
It was playing at the local theater...
allllll four HOURS of it.
I don't think I've spent four hours on one thing in my life.
Even during childbirth I multitasked.
Prior I found the perfect gift: Gone with the Wind coasters!
There wasn't exactly a red carpet but there was a main street leading to the theater and I was going to be ready. I even got out the IRON for my wrinkled dress (the things I do for friends).
I went bargain shopping for some Gone with the Wind goods. I found a 3.00 hat and 1.00 child's white glove set that (mostly) fit!
I looked up Gone with the Wind makeup (though it looks a little Japanese Dolly..ish), and
I found a fan in my drawer!
Carlee helped me make curls in my hair.
Then I had to decide on the navy or the pink shrug. Darren said the pink shrug looked orange...so I decided orange was out!
The whole look was a cross between Gone with the Wind, Fried Green Tomatoes, Mulan, and Paul the Mall Cop.
Here I am in the bathroom recreating the famous "curtain scene" with my shower curtain (not pathetic at all).
Of course, this will ALWAYS be my favorite recreation of the "curtain scene".
Just a few Southern belles.
I ran into a friend that works with the arts council,
I loved her dress!
Some people think I look like Melanie Hamilton.
I'm certainly not as nice as her character, she was semi getting on my nerves with all that perfection!
Mrs. E. REALLY enjoyed the movie.
I think she woke up at least twice.
Scarlett would cry if she saw Mrs. E.
(If this movie was a drinking game and one took a tiny sip every time Scarlett cried, everyone would have alcohol poisoning.)
Mrs. E. did laugh once when I told her Melanie should know better than to bring a knife to a gun fight, especially when one is trying to kill a Yankee.
Anytime with friends is a good time.
Don't worry if you have a bad week....
