A Fabulous Weekend!

Friday morning at 8:18 a.m my family got an early surprise. Baby Olivia arrived a little over a week early!! She's adorable and came out with a full head of hair. 
Isn't she adorable? It kinda gave me a few minutes of baby fever but then they started telling me all about the birthing and magically the fever went away! 
Congrats to my uncle Kenneth and new mama Amy! 

I spent the rest of the day being a lazy bum and catching up on this season of Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Making the Team. 
Every season this show comes back, I swear up and down that I'm not going to watch it. Then they'll have a marathon on and I get sucked into watching it. It's actually really entertaining and there's usually some really good dancers on there. It's fascinating to see all the stuff the girls will go through and do just to make it on the squad. It reminds me of my twirling days. 


On Saturday, I went and saw the new Footloose movie. 
When the movie first came out, I swore up and down that I wasn't going to go see it. I knew that there was no way they could ever out shine the original with Kevin Bacon. I mean really how can you ever beat Kevin Bacon doing gymnastics, the fake glitter at the end or even the burgundy blazer they put him in at the end? The answer: You can't! 

So on Saturday when I was deciding what to see, I settled on Footloose. I went into it trying to give it an open mind. I actually wasn't too disappointed in it. They opened with the iconic theme song and followed the script of the original almost exactly. They modernized some of it but I'd have to say that it was decent. The kid who played the new Willard was actually in my opinion the best one in the whole movie. He was very funny.

On Saturday, in honor of Halloween, I got some of this...
The True Blood drink! I'm a big fan of the show and I've heard a few people say it's good. I haven't tried it yet but tomorrow I'll be cracking it open and giving it a try! 
Happy Halloween!!!

IC refuses to see the new footloose movie - no Kevin Bacon and he says it's too similar to the old one! I'll let him know your impression of it though.

Jax said...

I can't believe they actually have a True Blood drink!! Hilarious! Baby Olivia is soooo adorable and looks like she has a lot of hair. :)

The photo of baby Olivia is just beautiful! Congratulations to the happy parents!
I can't believe you got Tru Blood to drink! I've recently become an obsessive follower of the series - what does it taste like??!?

I LOVE the DCC show! It's so addictive and I definitely watch it every year!

Tina Lane said...

I haven't seen this one but it makes me a little nervous. How can it compete with the original? Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

So im out stalking blogs and I read this and had to comment. I felt the same way about seeing Footloose. I didn't want to see it at all but I was talked into it. I loved it! And Willard was HILARIOUS!!! I loved him. After I watched it at the theater, I came home and watched the original. So good!!!
