It's the end of week #2, although technically I think it's more like the start of week #3 but seeing as my "new's" tend to happen at the weekends, I guess I'm always going to be a tad bit behind .... story of my life!
My NEW for this week is more of a re-new rather than a brand new (is that cheating?). DH & I have decided to re-new our monthly movie nights. Yiiiiippeeee! Now, whether we go out to the cinema to watch a new movie or we decide to stay home and watch a DVD, depends on a) what's on at the local cinema, and b) how our finances are doing that month (why does it cost sooooo much to go to the cinema these days?).
Anyhoo, we kicked off our re-newed movie nights last night and with it being January, and money being a bit tight (getting paid before Christmas and then having to wait almost 6 weeks 'til the next pay day ain't good folks!), we decided to stay home and watch a DVD ... BUT ... to make things more authentic, we recreated the whole cinema experience! The furniture was re-arranged and the sofa positioned directly in front of the TV (our lovely 37" Pioneer plasma screen ~sigh~), our DVD was linked up through the surround sound speaker system (AMAZING clarity & volume!) and of course the choice of snacks & beverages were suitably cinema-like (burgers, popcorn, M&M's, chips 'n' dips & bottles of beer).
We had a fabulous night, though I think I ate too much popcorn ... but hey, you can't have a movie night without popcorn, can you? Oh, and in case you're wondering ... we watched Ocean's Eleven (you really can't beat a bit of George & Brad on a Friday night!)
