Coated in salty goodness, I was IN LOVE!! Read More about Edamame HERE. I bought a bag in the frozen food section and this has been a nightly snack.. YUMMY!!
As a parent it is tough to go out to the movies, not to mention expensive.. But lately we have found some time to hit the local AMC...
I am a Harry Potter fan, well the movies, I have not taken the time to read the HUGE books, but Muscle Man has read the whole series a few times. The first couple movies had whimsy, smiles and kid-like magic. As Harry and his pals grow, the whimsy is replaced by fear and dark magic. This film is very well made, but it is dark. I do not consider this a family movie, unless you have children over the age of 10 or so. But for a date night, it is AWESOME!!
Sidenote: did you know that if you sit off to the side the chair are cushier? This is because most people want to be smack dab in the middle. the view from the side is good, it is not crowded and the chairs are cozy :)
The FUN thing about having kids is I have a good excuse to see the fun kid movies. With Little Stud #1's 5th Birthday and Thanksgiving, we had good reasons to see the new kiddo flicks.
Tangled a Rapunzel Story: This movie may seem to be for girls...but it really is a fun show for all. We took my 10 year old Tall Nephew and he really liked it. The only downside for me was that we went to the 3D version, glasses give me a headache and there was not much 3D content. Mandy Moore is the voice of Rapunzel, she has the perfect Princess voice. The songs were fun and upbeat, there was action and adventure.
Megamind: It has been a while since I have seen a movie that made me laugh out loud. The humor is geared more toward adults but is not confusing for the little ones. Mispronounced words, identity crisis, elaborate costumes and weapons that backfire combine for s Superhero adventure. I will be buying this movie when it comes out, it is that GOOD!!
What did you buy on Black Friday??? Hmmmm... Well Muscle Man and I, with the generous help of Tall Grandma for our BIG Christmas gift THANKS MOM, purchased a.....wait for it....
If you have read Tall Mom for any amount of time you know I am a road runner..but lately I have not been able to fit in my miles due to work schedule, weather and darkness. Also Muscle Man is planning to run his first Half Marathon in 2011. For us both to reach our goals a Treadmill is a needed addition. I will have a full review once I test it out, I don't want to recommend something unless I give it a FULL TEST. We opted for a Proform, with a longer runway and wide base. I HOPE that it works for us Tall folk :)
