Weekend of Whimsy

Friday night marked the first of many holiday parties that we get to attend! We went to The University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ for my work party. It was so fun to get dressed up and have a night out on the town. I loved being able to introduce Joe to my co-workers and at the same time see who their significant others are. That always fascinates me for some reason. The party was about 3 hours but the night flew by with all the mingling we did.

Saturday Joe and I slept in which is something Joe rarely does. I love it when he does though because it means he doesn't distract me from my slumber:) When we got up we headed to the movie theatre to watch Australia. We have been so excited for this movie to come out and it was AMAZING and we LOVED it!!! You MUST go watch it! The amazing Baz Luhrmann was the writer, producer and director for the movie. He also wrote, produced and directed Romeo and Juliet and Moulin Rouge, two of our other favorite movies. Australia is an epic story filled with adventure, romance, drama, history, heartache, oh yeah and Hugh Jackman without a shirt:)

Last night we had our church Christmas party. We are still trying to get to know people and make new friends. Everyone we have met so far is really nice so hopefully we can get to BFF status someday like our friends in South Phoenix (we miss you) :) We had a delicious dinner at the party and then afterwards we headed out to see another movie James Bond:Quantum Solace. My favorite part of the movie is at the beginning when they were in Siena, Italy. It was so cool to see a movie filmed in a location that you have been to. Even the roof tiles that they were running on looked familiar to me:)

I'm such a nerd! I went to watch Australia by myself (long story...I wanted to watch a "girl movie" and my husband had to study for finals). I really liked it. It was hard to describe. But, I felt some kinship to Nicole Kidman's adopting the little boy....

Sounds like an exciting weekend! We miss you guys too! Tonight is the Christmas HFPE and I wish you were there, it will be strange without you. LOL!

Thanks for the recommendations- maybe we can use some of our movie passes that are about to expire...
