Sweet &  Simple Reveries…

We have absolutely no plans this long weekend other than being together for four uninterrupted days – oh, and maybe we’ll check out some fireworks… Happy Canada Day!
Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.

Sweet &  Simple Reveries…

In our house, we now have three alarm clocks. The first being our aging and dearly beloved little cd player/clock, the second (religiously faithful every morning at 5:30am) has been self-delegated by Billy Graham, and the third (when all else fails and who saved my ass today) is my  great and wonderful husband – thank you!

Love is one long sweet dream, and marriage is the alarm clock.

In 5 Words

Couples Retreat

Jason Bateman, Vince Vaughn, Kristen Bell, Jean Reno & others…

So – why did I wait to see this? 

The Champs

Sometimes, a few good movies just slip past – it’s hard to see past the theatre action-packed ones.  We always take a date night when a great must-see-on-big-screen movie comes out. Yet once in a while we stumble across a decent romantic comedy that’s still relatively fresh… 

Let’s see here – five words…?  

Nostalgic (for couples), funny (as in always chuckling), raw (a bit at times), and I totally lost my mark of five words…  

I would watch it again – as this time I’d be prepared for the few awkward moments.   

I liked how each person was unique – bringing their own problems and strengths to the table. So of course, each couple was even more strange – yet similar. 

The movie does a good job of highlighting common challenges married couples encounter – even the dreaded divorce. The advice wasn’t shy, occasionally akward, and very real

The Ladies

 Either way, I really appreciated that despite the problems that came up, no one really blames any one else for their own problems. The guys are pretty stand up and the girls call out each other too whenever necessary – which reflected how beneficial it is to keep close friends that support your marriage (even when it sucks). 

I have no idea how everyone was suddenly happy at the end? I must have phased out for a bit… Good weeknight movie.

Have you seen this movie? How would you rate it?

Sweet &  Simple Reveries…

Played a game of darts with the Mr. – and won! Who knew we could both also play opposite hands? I think we’ve got ourselves a tournie – this could be fun! 

It is in games that many men discover their paradise.
