Quality Time In the Theatre ~ Sex and The City 2 & Toy Story 3

Last week, my mother in law and I went to see "Sex and the City" together with mom's friends after having dinner and drink. I was thrilled when my daughters told me that I have a date with their grandma to see the movie the night before because having two little kids, even going to see a movie gets to be hard at times . Surrounded by older ladies, I listened to their stories, laughed and had a wonderful time drinking two frozen mango margaritas and the mashroom and avocado hamberger.

After the dinner, we saw the movie and my verdict : It was a lot better than I thought! It's maybe because I had heard so many bad reviews that my expections were really low. But honestly, I thought the movie was rather funny and cute. Yes, it wasn't like, "Oh my god, that was awesome!!" kinda movie, but I laughted so many times. And some of the focus was about Charlotte being the mother of two and sturuggled to cope with her stress of being a mother. I could relate with her and Samantha having the confession and sharing their pain or stress of taking care of child. The first movie is better, but "2" is definitely a movie that you will enjoy if you love "Sex and the City" on HBO and miss seeing the girls..

This was one of my favorite scenes where she walked in her old closet.
This is the girl I always love - cute Carry...

I must say 80's is plain hideous.


Everything about the 80's - fashion and music is something we'll never taste again.

They are very much in love....

I love these guys - good old pals and husbands from the great series on HBO.

If every airplane has this luxury bar and the suite, I would never complain about
a long flight...

They are so different, but they love one another.

And the moment I couldn't stop saying, "Awwwwww".
My Aiden. They are so cute together. They were the most adorable couple in the series.
It was so nice to see his face....

The very next day, I took my Ju Ju and Soapy to see "Toy Story 3" with Ju Ju's classmate and her mom. Everyone, you HAVE to see this movie!!!! It was really cute, funny and heart warming. This movie always makes me think about the toys that my kids have or I had -it's such a great concept. Seriously, I really want you to see this movie - you will not regret it. At the end of the movie, all of the audiences in the theatre clapped their hands and cheered, and even stayed until the end of credit. It was really, really good!!! And hearing our kids laughing, oh, it was so worth it.

Two characters that stole the show - Barbie and Ken. Oh Ken was hilarious.

And I love these ailiens - they are so slow and clueless - too cute.
So everyone, have you seen "SATC 2" or "Toy Story 3"?

I'm a big SATC fan, and I loved the movie. It was great to see how my favorite four women on TV/Movies are getting on with lives after two years. I was very disappointed to hear all the negative reviews about the film. While I love Sarah Jessica Parker and the rest of the SATC gang, even I realize that I was not expecting an Oscar performance.

SATC fans focus a lot on the fashion and the trends that the movie sets. For example, I Bought a " Carrie" style name necklace at http://www.mynamenecklace.com/?smt=373197 for the premiere because SATC is a way of life and it is not just about the content of the film.

I also Love love Toy Story and to combine my love of both movies together, I bought this cool 3D necklace:http://www.mynamenecklace.co.uk/Product.aspx?p=2220&m=310&smt=927339

3D is really cool, as is Toy Story Great Movie -I LOVE BUZZ and Woody!!!! To infinity and Beyond!!!!!

Emily: Thanks so much for your lovely comment. I'm a huge fan of SATC as well, I don't get tired of watching repeat over and over on HBO and Toy Story - I was still single when the first one came out. Now I'm a mom and I find more joy watching Toy Story...

I agree. SATC was not Oscar material but it was great. I had a fun time watching it with my girlfriends and we laughed and admired the clothes. A little over the top, yes, but entertaining.
I also watched Toy Story 3 with my boys and they really liked it. I teared up toward the end (I didn't cry watching 7 pounds while pregnant so go figure).

Oooh I do want to see Toy Story 3. I've heard such good things.

I loved all that fashion and I related to Charlotte's moment when she talked about motherhood.

Now I want to go see Toy story,havent' seen it yet, maybe cause I would feel 'out of place' going alone as my daughter is only two and still too young for movies. Maybe I can convince hubby to go with me.

Licia: I cried towards the end too! Oh my, I'm glad I'm not the only one! :)

the real mia: You HAVE to see it. You'll love it so much!

Elisa: Take your husband - there were many couples too. I promise, you'll love it!!!
