Husband and I were walking to the club one day.  I was talking about my post about him being CEO of our family.  I realized that I made a mistake and had 2 CTOs (Chief Transportation Officer and Chief Technology Officer).  I told my husband and he said, “That’s OK.”

“You say that like it’s not important,” I said.

“It’s OK.  It’s a blog.  It’s not like it will be on the news.”

He helps me not take myself too seriously and always makes me laugh.  I’m laughing now as I type this.  :)

Vacations are especially fun with hubby.  We have a few planned this year.  We have a weekend and a week at the beach (2 separate trips).  We have a long weekend visiting relatives in West Virgina.  We have a Thanksgiving trip to visit my husband’s brother.  And we have Christmas in Denver with my brother and his family.

Things that would be run of the mill done alone are brighter when I’m with my husband.  Everything is fun – even grocery shopping.  Even going to the dump!

 

#321: Movie Mondays – Bridesmaids April 16, 2012

Bridesmaids (2011 film)

Year: 2011

Genre: Comedy/Romance

Description from http://www.IMDb.com: Competition between the maid of honor and a bridesmaid, over who is the bride’s best friend, threatens to upend the life of an out-of-work pastry chef.

Wife:  This movie is really about the maid of honor and it is more about friendship than marriage. But I’m a sucker for wedding movies so there you have it.  It was very funny. I love Maya Rudolph, she is so naturally funny, earthy and quirky.  The themes of the movie are friendship, believing in yourself, loving yourself, and competition between friends.  Kristen Wiig‘s character is so very likeable.  Melissa McCarthy‘s character is crude but hilarious.  (Warning: there are definitely some unladylike scenesand foul language in this movie).  However, very funny movie.

Husband: I thought it was hilarious at times and contrived at others.  Melissa McCarthy stole the show.  She was the funniest but was not the focus of the movie.  This movie was better than The Hangover.

Husband-Wife Compatibility Rating: 8 (Wife gave it a 10, husband gave it a 6).

 

#314: Movie Mondays – Midnight in Paris April 9, 2012

Year: 2011

Genre: Comedy/Fantasy/Romance

Description from http://www.IMDb.com: A family travel to the French capital for business. The party includes a young engaged couple who are forced to confront their differing views of a perfect life.

Wife: I loved it.  I had forgotten it was a Woody Allen movie but was reminded by the opening shots.  Allen clearly loves Paris the way he loves New York.  It’s an enchanting story – funny, beautiful, romantic.  Owen Wilson was great.  A magical story about Paris in the 20s.  Kathy Bates is a perfect Gertrude Stein.

Husband: It was creative.  I liked the cameos by historical figures.

Husband-Wife Compatibility Rating: 7 (Wife gave it a 9, Husband a 5.  It was romantic enough for Wife but not funny enough for husband).

#307: Movie Mondays – Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark April 2, 2012

Year: 2010

Genre: Horror/Thriller

Description from http://www.IMDb.com: A young girl sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own.

Wife: This was a very scary and creepy movie.  It had an old-fashioned feel to it.  This movie was produced by Guillermo del Toro who also produced Pan’s Labyrinth – another great movie.  I am not a big fan of horror but this was really horror-lite.  I do love thrillers though. My husband loves both horror an thrillers which probably explains our high compatibility rating.  The little creatures were terrifying.  Very enjoyable in a scary way!

Husband: Great!  A very creative scary movie.  Katie Holmes did a nice job.
