I don't know if you remember, but in November, I went to the movies with a bunch of girls to see my favorite movie of all time, Twilight. OK, stop laughing, I really *do* love that movie. Not so much because it's a perfect representation of the books brought to film, because it's totally not that, but I like to think of it as it's own little tidbit of Twilight-y goodness. Added to the fact that Rob Pattinson completely surprised me with his ability to bring Edward to life, and wow! Perfection. Anyway, wow that was way off topic.
Last night the girls & I went to see another one of my favorite books turned movie!
Confessions of a Shopaholic! Sophie Kinsella is truly one of my favorite 'pink book' authors. I love her wit and charm. Having read the Shopaholic series I went into the movie not really expecting to be wow'd. I'll admit I generally love the books more than any movie. (For example, The Devil Wears Prada, I much prefer the book over the film.)
This time, however, I was pleasantly surprised. I LOVED the movie. Seriously. I honestly don't think I've laughed that much, out loud even, at a movie, ever! I can't wait for it to come out on DVD so I can watch it, and make Barry watch it. I really think that it's universally funny, not just girls night out funny! If you get the chance, go see it!
And thank you to my husband for not only watching our kids, but watching Natalie's little boy for an hour so that girl's night out could happen :)
