My pretty girl

I can't believe my Ryelie is going to be 8 years old in just a month.  It feels like just yesterday that we were bringing her home to our little apartment in Bremerton.  She has become such a 'mini-adult' lately.  Wanting to be in the grownup's conversations, which I am constantly reminding her she's just not old enough for.  She's thinking things through more thoroughly, trying to be funny in 'not so childish' ways.  I miss my little baby girl but, at the same time, I'm looking forward to this new time of her life.  Don't get me wrong...it scares the begeezus out of me.  We're already dealing with 'teen type' attitude and sullenness.  And I think, if this is how it is at 8, how much worse will the teen years be?!?!?  But we'll handle it, we'll deal.  I love my girls so much, I just want them to grow up thinking more of themselves than I did of myself.  I want her to be happy.

New This Week...So Far

I wasn't going to do this post yet, because I have 2 more movies to watch, but I had to tell you about Fired Up!  RENT IT!  It's definitely an adult movie.  It has language, some nudity and sexual comments....but I have not laughed at a movie do hard in a long while.  I was afraid it was going to be kind of lame, you know how some of these smaller movies can be.  Oh man, not this one.  The movie is about friends, Nick & Shawn.  Football players who's summer plans look rather boring, 2 weeks at football camp with no girls in sight.  They decide to scam their was into the cheer camp by becoming cheerleaders.  The plan to bail early after they've scored as many chicks as possible.  Of course, changes of heart ensue...I may have to watch it again before I return it.  Seriously, if you're in the mood for a hilarious movie, this is definitely it!  If you're easily offended, this probably isn't for you.
I'll edit this and add more movies when I get to them.  I have Revolutionary Road and Gran Torino waiting.

Some Randomness

A few picture I've taken over the last few days. This first one is of a note Eric left me on our chalkboard. The only reason I'm sharing this is because...I DIDN'T NOTICE IT FOR 2 WEEKS! I swear right before and after he leaves I kind of go on auto pilot. It's weird. I was so touched at Eric's thoughtful gesture. Thanks babe!
The girls hanging out in the playroom.  Jo's mad that I pulled out the camera.
Me & my baby
The girls being goofy.  Jo was laughing so hard.  She wouldn't get off of Rye.
Kisses.  A rare show of affection.
Rye, always trying to horn in on a shot.  So funny!
Jo likes to do her sad face sometimes.  She's so adorable, I can't stand it.  
Kisses for Mom.  I have a similar one with Rye at this age.

New This Week

Alrighty, I'm a little late this week with the posting.  As all the new releases for this week come out tomorrow.  And seeing as I watched these movies on Thursday I have no reason for my procrastination.  I watched two new movies this week, technically three, but one was on TV.  
The first movie I watched was New in Town.  A sweet comedy starring Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr.  Renee plays a Miami based exec that goes to Minnesota to change over a factory and lay off hard workers.  She falls in love the with town and with Harry's single dad character.   I don't want to give too much of it away so I'll say no more.  It was a good movie.  I am not a huge Renee fan but I would definitely watch this again.
Next up is a small movie called The Ramen Girl.  It stars Britney Murphy as a girl that never commits to anything until she follows a boyfriend (that didn't want to be followed) to Japan.  In the sorrow that follow his ditching of her she finds solace in a Ramen shop.  She decides she want to become a ramen chef and asks to be trained by the alcoholic chef.  There are subtitles through out the movie but worth the read.  I only checked this movie out because I love her other small film, Love and Other Disasters, even though she's not always the best actress.  If you're in the mood for something a little off beat, check out this flick.
The last movie I want to touch on was a Lifetime Original Movie, starring Sarah Chalke, called Maneater.  It's a long one, but totally worth it.  Find it's replaying on TV when you can.  Chalke plays Clarissa, a girl totally caught up in having money and things.  On being told by her father that he'll be cutting her off she decides to bag a rich husband so she doesn't have to work.  All kinds of craziness ensues and she grows up a lotthrough this movie.  I was seriously bawling at the end of this movie.  It was great.  Sarah Chalke is just hilarious in general and I loved her in this role as well.  Again I say, check this movie out.
I'll be buying He's Just Not That Into You when it comes out tomorrow.  I can already tell you that is a great movie.  I watched it in the theaters and it was awesome.  You can't help but love Ginnifer Goodwin's character but also cringe for her when you see her doing something countless women do.  There are so many story lines in this movie that all end up intersecting in one way or another.  This movie, with it's star studded cast, is definitely buy worthy if you are into romantic comedies.
