Dinner and a Movie

Last night we had Trent's work party. I have been looking forward to it all week. Every time I would get sick of kids fighting, whining, making messes, or crying I would think; just 3 more days until I get out of the house...just 2 more days...and so on.

We met at the restaurant Thaifoon. I was particularly excited for this. I love "Asian" food. We were quick to order and I think we ended up ordering the whole menu. It was heaven. I tried something new too. Edamame, which are cooked soybeans. Different but good. I even got a Root Beer to celebrate my night out.

After dinner, we headed over to watch a movie. We were going to see Australia, but hadn't heard any good reviews, so we watched Quantum of Solace instead. I was really excited to see this one, because I loved the first one. And I guess when I say first one, I mean the first one with Daniel Craig as 007. I wasn't a big James Bond fan before Casino Royale. I hated the over the top stunts and escape scenes and all the sexual innuendos and love scenes. I am afraid to say that the Quantum of Solace reverted back to the old James Bonds I remembered. It was a good movie to see once and Daniel Craig still makes a hot James Bond, but we will not be purchasing this one to watch over and over. I am hoping the 3rd (if they make one) will go back to how they started things off in Casino Royale.

It is always weird to go out to dinner without kids and actually get to eat our food while it is hot, have a conversation without being interrupted, and leaving the restaurant without more food on the floor than in our bellies. And to watch a movie without multiple potty breaks, entertaining kids with food, and not having to explain what is happening was refreshing. Thanks to my mom and Jill for splitting the shift and taking care of the Furious Five!

I AM SO GLAD YOU GOT A NIGHT OUT. I HAVE TO BE HONEST, I LOVED THE JAMES BOND. DANIEL CRAIG IS A GREAT JAMES BOND ON THE EYES.

You are for sure not drama mom. I'm sorry I'm not more help. Seriously, I don't even know how to help when I'm with you. Annie seems to keep me busy enough, thought I don't know how that's possible. I love that I tell you I'll be in charge of Andrew then promptly left to go feed Annie. I'm so dumb. Sorry. You're amazing that you keep up with all those kiddos. Seriously.
