Leisurely Sunday

Since we went to mass last night, we enjoyed Sunday morning immensely. Japa rowed in the pool, the kids lounged in their pajamas playing DS, on the computer, watched Monk with me. We stayed in our jammies until we had to get up, shower and get dressed for lunch at La Vista. Grudgingly, at that, hehehehe. None of us wanted to move from our spots!

But I had confirmed that we were going to have lunch in La Vista with Lola, so off we went. A few minutes after lunch, though, we were saying our goodbyes, as we wanted to catch the 1:40 pm showing of Bride Wars. Chicks watching a chick flick: Raegan, Raine, Reese, Zhar and me.

Movie Summary: Liv and Emma are best friends who since childhood have planned every detail of their respective weddings. At the top of their bridal "must have" list: a ceremony at New York's ultimate bridal destination, the Plaza Hotel. Now, at age 26, they're both about to get married; they're about to realize their dreams; and they're about to live happily ever after. Or maybe not. When a clerical error causes a clash in wedding dates--they're now to be married on the same date!--Liv, Emma and their lifelong friendship are put to the ultimate test. Liv, a successful lawyer who is used to getting what she wants, including the perfect job and the perfect man, won't settle for anything less than the perfect wedding she has dreamed of for years. Emma, a schoolteacher who has always been good at taking care of others, but not so much in looking after herself, discovers her inner Bridezilla and comes out swinging when her own dream wedding is imperiled. Now, the two best friends who'd do anything for each other find themselves in a no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners struggle that threatens to erupt into all-out war.

It was an ok movie. Touching at times, funny for the most part. I could totally see Reese and Raegan as Liv and Emma. Not the fighting part, but the closeness part and the sentimentality part :). I was getting teary-eyed towards the end (apparantly, so was Zhar), but these dang kids looked at us and asked in this incredulous tone, "are you crying?!???" Sheesh! Talk about a real tear-stopper! Hahahahaha!
