Weekend recap - movie filled weekend!

Friday, Geof and I stayed in since I had work to do on and off most of the weekend. We ordered a pizza and watched a movie called The Hills Run Red. It was a horror flick that was surprisingly good and not what I was expecting at all.


Saturday, we had ice skating and then ran to Wal-Mart to pickup the Gazelle that Geof ordered. I’m interested to see if it works. We needed something that didn’t take up a lot of space to keep in his “man cave” and decided on that. Saturday night, we saw Paranormal Activity. I thought that I was going to hate it because I didn’t like The Blair Witch Project. It turns out that I loved it, even though it was very disturbing. I think I’m going to be freaked out for awhile now because of it.

Sunday, Geof agreed to go see New Moon with me (he’s the best). The movie was great and so much better than Twilight. Neither movie can hold a candle to the books, but it is still so much fun to see it on the big screen and see how what I pictured in my head while reading the books translates to the movie.

After the movie we ran to Macy’s to get him some work clothes and then made a quick stop at Target. Once we got home, I made dinner, while he put the Gazelle together. We watched football and some of the AMA’s and called it a night.

UGH!!! I want to go see Paranormal Activity so badly but the one person that agreed to go see it with me is out of commission for a while. I might have to go alone. GASP!!! So glad you had a wonderful weekend!!! XOXO

What a great relaxing weekend! I'm glad you got to see New Moon! I think I am the only person not interested in the Twilight series. I wondered about Paranormal Activity, I think it may be a little too freaky for me.

I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgivng!!

I am soooo not a horror movie person but I heard Paranormal Activity is great for people who enjoy those kinds of movies!

I'm debating if I want to see New Moon or not. I enjoyed the books, but this one was my least fav. and I don't know if I want to deal with all the little girls at the movie theater freaking out! I've heard from everyone that it's better than Twilight. I might just rent it, we'll see!

That Hills movie cover alone makes me scared - I can't imagine the whole movie! ha!

We saw Paranormal Actvity too and I agree that it was more disturbing than scary.

I saw New Moon with my hubby who came with me too and we both loved it. Much better than Twilight, can't wait for Eclipse!

I am SO not a scary movie person. I freak out and hyperventilate and all other sorts of embarrasing things. :) So i've learned to avoid them!! lol. Looks like a fun weekend!!
