Meredith's Weekend Movie Review (Sort of)

So I hope ya'll have had a great weekend! Russell is off tomorrow and I am excited about it, but we are going to have a low key Monday!
Friday night Mama, Russell and I went to Texarkana for a small getaway. For dinner we ate at Texas Roadhouse. Mama had not ever been there, and she enjoyed it. It is so good. We all had steak and potatoes. YUM!

We also decided to see a movie. Who has seen The Lovely Bones? Read it? I have not read it, but the preview looked pretty intriguing to me.
Oh my was.....just SOOO spooky to me! There was just this eerie mood throughout the whole movie.
Russell liked it, but there were many times where Mama and I nearly jumped out of our seats! YIKES! So if ya'll want an official movie review, I am not one to ask.
I will say though, that the movie trailer didn't seem that freaky to me, but it was.

On a totally different genre of movies..........
I mentioned a while back I saw the movie, The Blind Side.
Tonight was the golden globe awards and we watched some of it. Well, Sandra Bullock won an award for this movie! YAY for her! I'm glad that The Blind Side got an award!
The Blind Side is a MUST SEE movie, ya'll. When it is available to rent, I highly suggest ya'll go see it. Russell and I have a HUGE collection of movies. Needless to say, this will definitely be on my list to purchase soon!

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Matthew 9:36

I agree Meredith The Blind Side was terrific. It had it all humor, drama, football, tears, and boy did it teach many a good lesson.

I totally agree with you Meredith. The Lovely Bones was just SPOOKY!! Not a fan of that one. But, on the other hand, The Blind Side was probably one of my favorite movies I've seen in a long time!!
