Movie night: 27 Dresses

Mom and I watched 27 Dresses in our game room theater in May, and we both thought it was pretty good. Katherine Heigl was the lead actress--I don't recall seeing her in any other movie yet, and she did a decent job. It was a predictable chick flick, somewhat unbelievable, with the assumption that all bridesmaids' dresses are hideous and every bride thinks she's choosing a dress that her court will happily wear again and again, even though they never do. Come to think of it, I would never wear my bridesmaids' dresses again, so it does make a good point. The movie is worth seeing with another girlfriend, but I wouldn't recommend torturing your husband through it. I still give it a 4 out of 5, just because it's about weddings and they make me happy.

I have been DYING to see this movie and I thought I'd hit the jackpot when it was supposed to be the movie shown on the plane to Jamaica. But apparently there were problems with the DVD (actually, I think it was a tape) so we got stuck watching something else that I was not even interested in. On the way home we got to see the Bucket List and it had a lot of funny parts and the story had a lot of meaning to it. Some bad language though...which was beeped out on the plane :)

I was actually surprised at how much I liked this one. I didn't expect to, but it was really good. Thanks for the recommendation on Nim's Island. I will put it on my list!
Ha, I agree, I thought the movie was unbelievable too, but mostly because it was about how Katherine Heigel couldn't get a guy. I just couldn't buy her in that role. But I saw it with girlfriends and it made a fun night. :-)

Eh, it was lame. Of course, I watched it on the 14 hour flight to Hong Kong, so I'm sure the environment affected my viewing experience somewhat. :)

I wondered if this one was any good...I'll have to rent it and watch when Jody and Noah are sleeping. I don't think either one would get into a chick-flick! :-)
i really enjoyed this movie. i was able to watch it one night when brent was gone and i'm glad i got to see it.

I'm glad you liked this movie. I've been wanting to see it but hadn't heard from anyone if it was worth it or not. Now I'll have to snag it and check it out (sometime when JL is gone) :-)

I liked this movie, but not as much as I liked PS I love you. Check that one out! Even Chris liked it.

So apparently Ms. Heigl is a big tv star on the show Grey's Anatomy. I have never seen the show, so I didn't realize this. Silly me. I know it's a really popular show, but I don't watch a lot on television.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
