Monday Memoirs

No-Stress Saturday!! I went out to lunch at Zupas with my good friend Meals. I had only been there once before, and that was years ago. The food is really good, but we agreed it was a little overpriced. Unless you get the "Take 2" meal and split it with someone else. It was good to catch up with Meals. I love our friend dates. :)
I went home and picked up my hubby and we went geocaching for the first time! Well, kind of. I've been wanting to do it for a while and we finally got around to it, but I think our GPS is a little off (it's pretty much a piece of junk)...AND we didn't feel like spending more time hiking in the deep snow near Bridal Veil Falls, so we decided to pick up that adventure later.
Jed had a surprise for me, which was going to the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point. Apparently it’s the largest one in the world. It was interesting and Jed absolutely loved it. :) For dinner, we tried a new place (for us) in South Jordan called Gecko’s. The chips and salsa were super good, but the food itself was good, just not anything too special.

We came back to P-Town and rented I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry because it was the only thing that looked remotely interesting at RedBox, and because the girl behind us said it was really good. Meh. Not impressed. It was actually pretty dumb. Surprise, surprise…

Sunday- After church, Jed and I were invited over to the Nielsens' house for dinner and games. Adam's sister and her little girl came too, and it was really fun. We played a card game called "Shanghai" which is a lot like Phase 10. Jed and I borrowed "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" from Amanda because I had never seen it before. It wasn't amazing. I don't understand why everyone loves that movie and thinks it's so funny... Maybe it was funnier when it came out. Generational humor?

I agree with you about the Chuck and Larry movie, I didn't really like it at all. But maybe you need to watch Ferris Bueller a couple more times to really get it. It's like that with some movies, ya know? Like Zoolander -- I had to watch that at least 3 times before I really thought it was funny. :)

Nathan and I went and saw Bride Wars this weekend (it was literally the only thing out at the time we needed) and it was pretty okay. One of those ones that you don't expect it to be amazing and so you're not disappointed when it's not, lol. But I liked it enough. :)

Are you guys gearing up to head down here? :)

You definitely need to watch Ferris Bueller's Day off a few more times for the funniness to soak in. And the one liners are probably the best thing about it... Once you submit yourself to the uselessness and utter stupidity of the whole thing, giving up all hope of intelligent humor, it's great.
