I hope by now you have all recovered from your chocolate hangovers. Mine lasted all through first period - but I guess that's what happens when you scarf down a whole box of truffles to yourself! I couldn't help it... they tasted soooo good.
My girls' night movie-fest went really well. It was just me, Amy, my mom, a couple girls from school and my Aunt Jilly (who's actually my mom's best friend). She and Mom have been friends since, like, second grade, and she's never gotten married. This year she was flying solo like the rest of us so mom invited her over. We rented a ton of movies, made hot chocolate, had ice cream sundaes and of course, popped bowl after bowl of popcorn!
Mom and I had planned the perfect movie line-up for our girls' Valentine's bash. We figured we'd start things out slow and then work our way up to the ultimate, sappy, tear-inducing flick. To ease us into a romantic mood we picked The Little Mermaid. There are tons of great songs to sing along to, there's a really cute prince and it has a very, happy ending. I don't think I will ever get tired of that one. Next up was my pick - The Notebook! I know it's cheesy and really sappy but it gets me every time. In fact, it got every one of us last night. There was not a dry eye in the living room by the time the credits rolled.
The last movie we watched was Dirty Dancing - picked by my mom and Aunt Jilly. Apparently they've watched it like 20 times together. I'd never seen it but I'm glad we left it for last because it was nice to end the night on a teary, but happy ending. If we had of watched The Notebook last, I think I would've had dreams all night about getting old but instead I dreamt that I joined a touring dance show and fell madly in love with my dance partner who looked remarkably good in a pair of tights. I also dreamt that I had giant white angel wings and could fly. I'm not sure what that was about!
So how did your Valentine's go? How many of you had hot dates? Who stayed home and pigged out on chocolate by themselves? I'd what you got up to!
