Seriously, it was the best day. Here's the rundown:
10:30 am- go to the Shade Warehouse Sale in PG. OH MY GOSH. It's amazing! I went a little overboard and bought 15 shirts, but I couldn't believe the sale. My smart sister Sarah likened the Shade sale in Utah Valley to sample sales in NYC. It was absolute pandemonium.
12:30 pm- lunch at Noodles with my favorite partner in crime, Brent. Love him. Lunch was immediately followed by yogurt at Red Mango. Yum. I think I'll go to Red Mango again today.
2:05 pm- Brent and I see "He's Just Not That Into You." The movie was fab, but the surroundings were not. Let me explain...
Brent and I were sitting in the second to the last row in the back. Behind us were a group of young moms with their 1-3 year old children. I'd say 3 moms, 3 kids. All purposely spread out over the whole back row. Throughout the movie, the kids would scream, cry, yell things to their moms, shake our chairs, stick their arms between the chairs, peek over the tops of our chairs at us.... you get the picture. It was awful. After the movie, Brent actually did what I wanted to do. He stood up and turned around to the closest mommy behind us. Here's the dialogue:
Brent: Excuse me, are those your children?
Mommy: Yes, one of them is.
Brent: Well, their running around made the movie awful for me.
Mommy: (calmly) I'm sorry sir.
Brent: Well it was awful
Mommy: (suddenly infuriated) Excuse me sir?!? Are you a parent?
Brent: As a matter of fact, I am. (lie)
Mommy: (still infuriated) Well then you must know how difficult it can be to get a sitter!
Brent: (calm) Oh I know, but when I can't get a sitter then I don't go out. I don't take my child to the movie with me and disturb others.
Seriously, if you can't get a sitter, DO NOT take your child to a 2 hour movie, unless you are sure that they will be able to sit semi-quietly and not disturb everyone around them. If you want to see a movie, rent one. End of rant.
The day was still good after the movie debacle, I promise. See?
5-7 pm- play Mario on the Wii with Brent and Benjamin
7 pm- dinner at Pizzeria 712. You know how I feel about this place. Love.
8:30-bedtime- More Mario, watch "Swing Vote"
Sorry for the insanely long post, but it was a really great day. Props to you if you actually read it all.
