Shopping Again and The Lucky One

Hey friends!
So, I'll be honest...I may be going a little nutso in the shopping department lately.
Now, I won't point fingers, but it seems that every time I hang out with Danielle we shop.
Take last night for example.
We went to dinner and then to see The Lucky One {amazeballs...but I'll get to that in a minute}.
The earlier showing was sold out so we got a later time and started walking around the mall.
In record time I had purchased two pairs of shoes and a bikini bottom.

Gotta buy some shoes for work.

I love the color of this suit and the cute ruffles!

I bought some jeans from AE as well, but I need to take them back and get a smaller size.
I love when that happens!!
Now, like I said, Danielle and I went to see The Lucky One.

It is my favorite Nicholas Sparks book by far.
When I found out Zac Efron was in it...well, I was just a little bit excited.
The movie didn't disappoint me!
I'm not a movie critic {I would be a horrible critic because I'm easily entertained!}, but when Zac Efron takes his shirt off a lot, I'm just fine with whatever the plot is.
I thought Taylor Schilling was gorgeous and held her own with Zac.
I used to try to pretend I didn't care about romance, but seriously, that's crap.
I'm a "hopeful romantic".
I love love.
Danielle and I talked after the movie and we agreed that there aren't many men out there who treated Beth like Logan did in the movie.
Really pursuing her, wanting to know everything about her, being a gentleman, and being super hot!
It's just a movie.
It's sad because I have a ton of guy friends and could only think of one, maybe two, guy who are genuinely sweet and caring and romantic.
I'm not saying that I want a mushy gushy guy at all.
I'm usually more attracted to the funny guy anyways.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that every time I watch a Nicholas Sparks movie, or any romantic movie for that matter, my expectations shoot through the roof and no guy can measure up to a role in a movie.
I think it's something you realize one day when you fall in love...instead of thinking of all the other persons flaw and how you wish you could change them, you love them in spite of their flaws.
I'm looking forward to the day when I'm in love with someone, and he with me, in spite of our flaws!

  1. Cute sandals! I feel like I always get on shopping kicks where I want to buy a ton of stuff all at once, then I go a few weeks without feeling like I want to shop at all! (I think those are the weeks my husband likes best :P)
