RedBox Movie Night: Horrible Bosses

I'd been waiting for awhile to see this movie, and it didn't upset!  Jason Bateman is absolutely hilarious and Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston give A+ performances as well.

If you're not familiar with the story's premise, it goes something like this: three guys with bosses they hate and nowhere else to go.  What's the solution?  To have their bosses removed, of course!

What I love about this movie is that it's funny without going overboard.  It flows, the jokes fit (none of them seem forced), and the story line is only slightly far fetched.

Eric and I both enjoyed it immensely.  The only thing he said he didn't like about it was that he didn't think there was a lot of improv going on, and we love improv.  The only think I didn't like about it is that I mistook Jason Sudeikis for Ed Helms (the dentist from The Hangover) and lost a bet with Eric over it.  Watch the movie though, and there are parts where they could be identical!

Out of 10 stars, we'd give this movie an 8.5

Back to School

With our current situation, which totally sucks, BTW, Eric has finally decided to take those important first steps in furthering his education.  He's planning on taking online courses in accounting, and starting in the beginning of the New Year.  Right now he's working on applying for as many scholarships as possible.  This one in particular is awarded by popular vote.
Please ladies, if you can find a couple of seconds of time to click this link and vote for him, it would be VERY appreciated!
Help me win a $5,000 college scholarship. Vote for my essay!

How to Avoid Being Eaten

I've been getting a lot of criticism lately for Lucas' hair.  It hasn't been cut yet, and I can't tell you how many people tell me how cute "she" is.  Or the comments on Facebook about when we're going to cut it.  What do you think?  Time to snip those locks or what?  Personally, I think a pair of scissors are in order.  It's just something we haven't done yet.

And, again, I apologize for the sideways picture.  This time I DID try to fix it but even though I rotated it in Photobucket it keeps coming here in its original state.  Whatever.

This weekend Matthew had another project to work on.  Don't know if you remember or were here for the scarecrow he and Eric made for school.  This time it was a turkey.  A turkey who has to disguise himself to avoid being cooked into a delicious Thanksgiving meal.  Our Turkey decided to disguise himself as none other than Santa Clause!  Who would ever think of stuffing him into an oven (besides maybe an old witch who lives in a gingerbread house)?  I think this old Tom is safe this year.

Busy Busy Little Bee

I can't believe how busy I've been, and I know that I've missed a lot of great stuff online during these past few weeks.  I've really missed reading all of my favorite blogs!

Here's an update of what's been going on here:

October 18th was my first day working for Kohl's!  I was really surprised to learn I got the job.  They had over 300 applicants for about 50 positions and their were 10 people per interview, so I wasn't getting my hopes up.  I'm grateful to be working and having a lot of fun there!

We went to the Scarecrow Festival at the Easton Farmers' Market on Oct. 22nd and had a really great time!  Sorry for the sideways pictures: I'm just too lazy right now to fix them.  So at the Scarecrow festival there were a bunch of scarecrows, obviously.  They were all over the place.  Pumpkin bowling, a really LAME puppet show by a nerdy looking kid, lots of games mixed in with the usual farmers' market stuff, and.... the CORN PIT!  My kids had SO MUCH FUN in this thing!  I'd never seen anything like it before, and if you haven't either, it's basically a sand box filled with corn kernels instead of sand. 

Then I was just working working working!  And when I've been home I've been too tired to do anything buy lay on the couch!  And then of course I had work the day we had all that disgusting snow!  Bleck!  I didn't take any pictures of it.  I'm hoping to bury that memory into my subconscious.

School was cancelled on Halloween because there were still areas in Easton that didn't have power, but that was cool for me because I had to work and was originally going to miss Matthew's Halloween parade at school.  As it turned out I was able to go on Tuesday!  Halloween itself turned out to be kind of lame.  When I was growing up the little kids went trick or treating right out of school, and the older kids went after it started getting a little dark out.  Here, there are set hours and it's like from 6 to 8 is the designated time to go trick or treating.  So we went out for an hour, while EVERYONE else was also out and NOBODY was home!  Between the two of them they got less than one bucket of treats.  I mean, they don't really need it, but it's disappointing going trick or treating when you have to skip 6 houses before someone's home!  We're going to another neighborhood next year, maybe things will be different!
