Date Night

Last night my parents watched B so that Chris and I could go on a date. We headed out to eat at Copelands (where I continue to order my favorite dish even though it was taken off the menu 4 years ago!) and then to the movies.

I never thought I'd want to see a football movie but I've been anticipating seeing The Blind Side since the first time I saw the trailer.

If you're living in a cave somewhere and haven't heard of this movie (just kidding!) it's about the true story of Michael Oher who now plays for the Ravens. He was totally on his own, taking care of himself, sleeping in the school gym when the Tuohy family found him, walking down the street in the middle of winter with cutoff jeans and a t-shirt on. They took him in that night...and the rest you'll have to see for yourself.

This is a picture of the real family:


This is by far one of the best movies I've ever seen - made better by the fact that it's a true story. If you haven't seen it, make time for a date night and check it out!

Can't wait to see the movie. We kept our grandchildren so our son and daughter-in-law could go see it and they say now we HAVE to see it. They loved it and I've not heard anything bad about the movie at all.

My husband and I had my in-laws watch our twin daughters last night so that we could have a date night. Our date consisted of eating out and watching The Blind Side. I will be buying that movie. LOVE IT!

I can't wait to see it! We've gone several times to the theatre and it's been totally sold out!! Hopefully we will see it next weekend. Glad you had fun on your date night, and I like your new layout!

Jenna, I totally agree! It is one of the best movies ever! Sandra Bullock is amazing in this, as is Tim McGraw! If she does not get an oscar, I will be amazed!!! This was the movie that my hubby took me to last weekend for our first date since our baby boy was born! Loved it!
