I was completely charmed from beginning to end of the movie Juno. It was positively wraught with teenage angst. The kids were funny, dry and quite honestly, pretty darn bright. They used an excessive amount of clever verbage. Loved every second. It centers around a pregnant 16-year-old who decides to have the child but give it up for adoption - the most selfless act ever. I had to blink back a few tears but overall, the theater was giggling - I can imagine some of the quotes will be coined as a reult of this clever film, possible cult hit in our midst. I must go buy the sweet and folky soundtrack now. It's this years Little Miss Sunshine for me.
Today I had a lovely after Christmas get together with a girlfriend - oh so fun, lots of shopping around - she is a bit of a fashionista, I feel so backwards - she helps me get current. She was the force behind a great pair of new Nine West boots with a nice pointy toe and a great wooly sweater to match the gorgeous earrings she got for me:) I figured I was not mall material when I texted my pal "on bench in front of Banana" (as in Repulic) - she is so understanding of my homebody ways - now, that is a friend. We also enjoyed a great lunch at Flat Top Grill - what a cool experience - you pick the fixings for your own stir fry from a fresh, gorgeous buffet and mix up some personalized sauce (with the help of a adorable little waitress) - they have a drink called a Horny Monkey - we were curious but saved those calories for a decadent dessert later in our journey. She gave me a fabulous, thoughtful potpourri of gifts, one of which is Louisa Harding's book:
It was on my Amazon wish list - yay! Another book filled with Anthopologie-inspired accessories. Which lead to a detour to Anthropologie - they had a lovely sale rack but nothing made it out the door with me - still a bit pricey for my budget - but fun to be vicarious!
Overall it was a great day! But then I had to drive about between 16 - 36 miles per hour all the way home due to horrible fog. I had lots of time to say prayers for the people involved in a 50 car pile up on the interstate just south of Madison - so back to reality for sure. I feel blessed to have enjoyed the company of a wonderful friend.
Have a great week!
