SO glad that Valentines Day fell on a Tuesday because at Southglenn (5 minutes from our house) Tuesday is $5 night! Yes, you heard that right- movies at Hollywood theatre are $5 ALL DAY AND NIGHT and a really fun restaurant- Bar Louies has a special where all their specialty burgers are $5! So thats just what we did!
We usually do not go out on Valentines Day because it is just very crowded and its hard to find a babysitter, but thanks to some pretty awesome teenagers who suggested that they watch our kids and we go out, we were able to enjoy a very fun and cheap date night:) THANK YOU- Jamie, Tyler, Kelley and Brooke!
We watched The Vow. I LOVED that is was based off a true story and was even happier that the real life couple are married today and have 2 children even though she never regained her memory. I like to think that if I lost my memory of Mark and I meeting and our marriage and friendship that I would still honor my commitment to him in marriage and that even if the love feelings weren't there, I would still remain in the marriage and work on loving him again! Im sure that easier said than done.
And a side note- they show the husbands back side in the movie that is rated PG-13! I was shocked and I guess we should have researched the movie a bit more to have found that out before we went. But I didn't know they can have partial nudity in a PG-13 movie - how very sad. I am cringing for the day my kiddos are teenagers- I will have to do TONS of research before allowing them to any movie at all... if the age they expose peoples backsides is 13!!!! makes me so mad. How in the world does showing his bottom help the plot of the story at all- totally unnecessary!
Anyhow, it was so very nice to have a date with Mark, my amazing husband and enjoy good conversation with the man I will spend my life loving- memory or not!
