'the help' and the red sox.

no plans for the weekend usually means going to a movie at our lovely del rio movie theater.
even though it has a slight, musty, urine smell and the speakers work on and off, we like to catch a good show there now and again.
this was the case tonight.
i'm pretty sure we were the last ones in the country to watch "the help".
everyone and their dog has facebook and twittered about it, so we thought we'd jump on the bandwagon and see what all the hype is about.

ohemgee, i'm so glad we did.

it was the best movie i have seen in a really long time.
i was expecting it to be a little more historical/serious, but it wasn't at all!
it had me laughing my head off one minute and then trying to hold back the tears the next.
not to mention, emma stone is adorable.
i think she is in my top 10 {at least} list of girl crushes.
also, i absolutely loved their clothes!
does anyone else wish that we dressed and did our hair like they did back then?
this was one of my favorite outfits:

i love the tight waisted dress and the poofy hair.
obviously you have to have the bod to pull it off, but i feel like it just says, "i am quaint and cute."
and p.s. this girl did a really good job at being mean.
basically, if you haven't seen it yet, get on it because you will love it!

in other news, i accidentally washed some of my favorite socks with our red kitchen rug today:

the same red rug that i got after zachary for washing with all of our brand new white dish towels.
it used to drive me nuts growing up, that none of my family cared about separating colors when doing laundry.
all of my yellow clothes would turn out green after being washed with jeans and all of my camisoles would have a pink tint to them after being washed with one of the billion manti templar red t-shirts we had layin' around the house.
after making the same mistake, i guess i shouldn't have been so critical.

  1. Have you read the book? I read the book first, and it was great! The movie doesn't follow the book completely, but it still does a great job on it's own. And yes, I fell in love with this time period! LOVE the dresses especially, and I'm not entirely convinced Utah has ditched the hair (Utah poof).

  2. Haha they really haven't! That's ok though, I don't mind the poofy hair. As long as the rats nests don't poke through. :) And no, I haven't read the book yet. Is it worth it??

  3. I love reading books after watching movies because it's like seeing an insider's perspective. Just be prepared for something different... and the ending isn't as pretty as in the movie, but I think it would be worth it, but it's hard to say since I'm on the other end. There is however way more emotion. Then again, I LOVE reading books.

  4. Ok. Get this.

    Now that I have tv and see commercials, look at what I saw the other day!!


    Maybe I'm just out of the loop, but this amazes me!! Just thought that might help... because I know I'm dying to try one!

    Love you!

  5. That's so cool! I'm gonna have to get me some of those!
