Movies and Marriage

I seriously have a movie problem..I love movies!


I have girlfriends that I see movies with regularly and Kelly and I often go on date night too.

When I go to movies with my girlfriends I kind of come home with ideas for Kelly……

When I saw Country Strong I told Kelly that he should invest in a cowboy hat and possibly take up smoking.

{I don’t care what people say about that movie…I loved it}

When I came home from 17 Again I thought it would be completely appropriate for Kelly to go out right away and get a leather jacket and aviators…

{no judgement that Zac Efron is…ummmm…12….}

After Australia I wanted to special orders Kelly some chaps…..

When I came home from Kung Fu Panda I knew that Kelly needed some martial arts classes…..

OK….that one is not true…but who wouldn’t want THOSE skills????

    I LOVE movies too…I rarely go to a theater {I’m about 1 1/2 hours from the city} but when I do it’s such a treat. I have a nice collection at home. When I’m making my charms I have them going and repeat my favorites over and over again….

    That is hilarious about you wanting your husband to be like or have something you loved about the movies. I love it!!
    I can totally relate. While my husband was in Iraq the first time, I read a couple fiction books about cowboys, their lives, love stories etc. I just loved the idea of cowboys for some reason. I am telling you I kept thinking of my how nice it would be for him to be like that. The funny thing was, without sharing this secret, he came home over a year later…listening to country music (which in all our years married we had never done)and wearing a cowboy hat when he went fishing… was just the best silliest thing. I told him I had daydreams of him as my cowboy and he came home as just that. God surely made that happen. πŸ™‚
    I am so happy you said this, it gave me the biggest smile and a reminder of my own memories. Thanks.
