GNO


This weekend my Mom, Amy, Heather, and I went to a movie at midnight. How young and cool of us, huh. We really wanted to see Mamma Mia with Heather, who is the ultimate AbbA fan. Yes, I'm dead serious. She loves them.


It started out purely delightful, from the excitement of going somewhere late at night (us mom's have usually been home for quite a while by this time), to us giggling in the car on the way there. By the time we purchased our tickets we were slap happy.


The movie, for those of you who haven't seen it, is just sooooo funny. Especially at midnight. I haven't seen Amy laugh so hard since we watched Napoleon Dynamite in the theater. The theater was full of girls (with a few exceptions...) and it was so fun to hear all of our laughs echoing each others.


And now I too am a fan of AbbA. You were right all along Heather. And if you've seen her playlist you know that she is rarely right when it comes to her music choices.... (I'm teasing you Heather, sort of.)


So now all of you, find some girlfriends and make your way to Mamma Mia. And afterwards stop at Wal-mart to buy some plaster. Even if it is 2 a.m.

You crazy girls! Sounds like a fun time... it's a good idea really... all the kids are in bed and you can just go and have a good time.

Didn't it just make you want to get up and dance. I have seen it 3 times so far and each time it gets more and more tempting.

I loved it as well! Darrell and Marianne took me and Nate to the real life show a couple Christmases ago, and so when I told him I wanted to go he was actually kind of excited to see it too. We laughed so hard when James Bond was trying to sing. :)

To start off, I haven't had time to blog lately until today and so I finally read about your trip. It looks like you had a ton of fun. I have never been and would love to from all your fun pictures. I know how Trav must have felt not having a DP. It's hard to live with out. :)
Breaking Dawn: I was finally able to get some reading in today and finished it. I LOVED it! Everything about it. Next to the first one it is my fav. How did you feel? I've heard people who say they hated it.
I loved Mamma Mia! I went with 2 friends that love AbbA I didn't know much of their music but like you I am now a fan. I could watch it daily. I hope everything is going good for you!

STeve's sisters all went one day and LOVED it as well. Along with STeves dad, we went with them because he is the Abba fan in his family. SO he loved it just for that. I cant wait to go. I have to get my mom and sister:) We have Abba sound tracks and Im sure after I see the movie I will be listening to them again. Dax used to sing the money song when he was littler:)

The park sounds great!

Trisha said...

I was wondering if that movie was good...awesome to get a reliable review!

Morrell's said...

I loved Momma Mia too! My older siblings made me like ABBA! So we all went to a late movie one night too! It was so fun! Pierce Brosnan(sp) should not sing AHHHH! It was fun though!

The Wolfley Family said...

I'm slap happy again just reading about it. I'm so glad we went!

Amy Johnson said...

I'm speechless at just how much fun it was!!!! Plaster Paris!!! Ha Ha! "Is this everything for you?" LOL!!!

Jami said...

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it because I've been wanting to go see it. I actually saw the musical in New York and also left loving the music. I always love an excuse for a girls night out!

movie buff said...

this is one of the few plays i've actually seen, which ended up being great... it's funny to think of ol' Pierce taking a stab at singing, yeeesh

The Andersen Family said...

That just sound's like so much fun, I wish I could get all my girlfriend away one night to do that!!

Heidi Kjar said...

Love the paint. We painted our living room the same chocolate brown color. I also loved, loved, loved Mama Mia! It was super funny and definitely a "girls night out" movie.
