The Proposal

The movie. Not an actual proposal. (It's going to be a LOOOOONG time before that ever happens to me...)

The movie was a typical chick-flick: two people that hate each other need to spend a long amount of time together and they fall in love because of it. Typical. But it was funny, and Ryan Reynolds is a cutie. I liked how Sandra Bullocks' costumes became more relaxed as her character learned more about Reynolds' character, and when she left him they were very formal again. Good design choice. Other than that, I really have nothing else to say about the film. I might watch it again when it comes out, my mom liked it.

Today was Father's Day, so we went to church and had some family friends over. Jessica was in the youth group with me at church and graduated high school a year behind me. Our parents are really good friends, and Jessica and her husband Sam are stationed at the Air Force Base here. We get to see them and their new baby pretty often, and her parents came into town this week. I think it was really good for my parents to see their friends from Texas and catch up on what's been going on in The Woodlands. We ate smoked brisket and played the Wii, and played with the baby until she fell asleep. After they left, we went for a short dip in the pool before it got chilly.

Jessica wants to play golf sometime, so I need to get some golf shoes and clothes, and practice! I'm really good at Wii golf, but not so good in real life. Last time I went to the driving range I was doing pretty well. I'm just now learning to use my hips as the source of power in my swing and keep my feet planted.

I'm still reading "The Memory Keeper's Daughter." I saw the Lifetime movie a while ago, so I keep comparing scenes I remember to the film, but it's a well-written novel so far. I'm about halfway through. After I finish that, I think I'm going to start "Revolutionary Road." My dad just bought the movie and I want to read the book before I see the film.

As a side note, I was playing with the zoom and focus of my camera last month and took some pictures of the desert flowers in my parents' backyard. Here are a few:

Now I'm going to get in bed, cuddle with Sassy, and read my book. Good night!

Ryan Reynolds is yummy.

I still want to see Revolutionary Road. :(

I would be afraid to play golf with you ... would hit me with your damn club.

Those pics are pretty. :)
