Friday Five

1. Lisa had her first official drop off at school with all three kids. Apparently it involved a whole lot of lollygagging, screaming and "shiny eyes" (/sh-eye-nee/ ahy-s: adjective, noun, plural 1. When Lisa's son's big, old brown eyes gloss over with unshed tears after internalizing angry words from his mom.) There goes her shot at Mother of the Year.


2. One week shy of giving birth, Lisa and I created a new document and wrote chapter number one. It's a hot mess of like 10 different ideas we've had over the past 6 months. This should be interesting. Just don't tell her husband. I'm not supposed to encourage her.


3. Parenthood is one of my favorite shows. The music is amazing, the story lines are tight and the acting top notch. When I sit down to watch TV, it's the first show I cue up on my DVR. Even before Glee. There, I said it. Now go set record. 

These just in from Lisa via phone:

4. I'm reading CONFESSIONS OF THE SULLIVAN SISTERS and it rocks. Hard. Review coming soon. And can we talk about the cover? There's no way I'd see this at a bookstore and not pick it up. It's like this book was written and marketed for me. Well, a 16-year-old version of me. 
  
5. I've officially booked my first post-baby outing. I'm going to see The Social Network on Sunday and I could not be more excited. Okay, full disclosure - the friend I'm going with has been known to smuggle wine in water bottles into movie theaters which may or may not be contributing to my excitement levels. Hey, don't judge, it was a LONG 9 months.


Have a fab weekend everyone!

1. Mother of the Hour? That still open for nominations?

2. Lips are sealed.

3. I would follow Peter Krause anywhere. If you haven't seen Sports Night, there's a whole lot of goodness waiting for you right there.

4. Cover! Pretty! Click.

5. How did I never think of that? HOW? Do excuse me for a moment while I go plan an outing...

Wait a minute. Which one of you was writing this post? That was confusing.

Lisa, you will LOVE the social network movie. It is fascinating!!!!

Laura, I love when you and lisa sneak in some book writing on the sly. Good luck!

Wine into movies? Hee hee, I thought I was bad when I smuggled in a bag of popcorn. =)

Mariah Irvin said...

Before Glee?! Clearly I should check Parenthood out!

Have a good weekend!

You're killing me! I wanted to pick up that book so bad but held off and selected a Tera Lynn Childs novel Oh.My.Gods in prepeartion for my upcoming NaNo... now I'm regretting not adding it to the pile of purchases.

Guess I'll have to fix the mistake at lunch time!

Enjoy your movie, Lisa.

Laura--love your definition for "shiny eyes." I'm adding it to my dictionary now. :D

Kim Harrington said...

The Social Network was fascinating! Good stuff. Enjoy! :)

I haven't watched PARENTHOOD, I will have to give it a try! Hope you have a great time at the movies, sneaking in your wine. ;)

And it's okay Laura, we'll keep your secret. Unless your husbands read your blog. Ha ha.

Man, I need to watch some Parenthood. I miss Lorelai Gilmore.

Glad you're getting your post baby outing!!

Marsha Sigman said...

MUST check out Parenthood. I missed the Brittany episode of Glee and I am still depressed.

Angela Ackerman said...

Wine in water bottles? That's just...awesome.

ROFL! You two rock! And Lisa, I'm thirsty. Can I have a swig from your water bottle? :-)

SWK said...

I've brought my share of Mike's Hard Lemonade in a travel mug to PTA evenings. Seriously, how do they think we'd get through these things otherwise? Cheers!

Going where the water tastes like wine....

I've been hearing about Parenthood and how good it is. Saw an ep and it seemed like something that would grow on me.

The facebook movie (yes, that's what I call it) is QUITE GOOD. I was pleasantly surprised. It was also weird seeing old facebook. Boggles the mind how much that site has changed since I started using it.

Jemi Fraser said...

I haven't seen Parenthood yet - I'll have to check it out. :)

Little Ms J said...

Have a great weekend, ladies!

Nicole Zoltack said...
