Guess who is coming to dinner...

Oh the hectic feeling of getting your house & self presentable for the arrival of company. Today I've been rushing around madly cleaning the apartment so it is spic & span. As well as getting myself all dolled up & pretty. This evening my Mom arrives!!!

She will stay in town till Thursday. I have some fun times planned. I rented movies, have some yummy meals planned, we will finally go out & see the movie Hop! As well as other exciting & enjoyable times to be had. Then when the few days of fun is done I will be going back with her to Lockport, NY to do lots of wedding prep since the big day is getting closer & closer each day!

I'm going to miss my family of three (Bill, Cinder Fella, & Honeybee) but the end result of the seperation is a beautiful wedding & the happiness of being married!

(1/3 of my family of three,
my child, little girlie girl Honeybee)

Sweep. Dust. Primp. Open your doors & Welcome family inside.

Hop-py Easter

Did everyone have a pleasant Easter celebration? I hope so.

I had the lovely company of my fiance.
I tried making a new dish for dinner: Vegetarian stuffed peppers.
Verdict: Okay, worth making again. Thought of a few adaptations for the recipe for next time.
We also went to the 10pm showing of 'Water for Elephants'. I'm reading the book. & even though I wasn't quite done with it yet I wanted to go see the movie.

To say I was disappointed is an understatement. They changed key aspects of the story, rearranged the order of events, didn't match the image I created with the casting of the characters, focused way too much on the mistreatment of the circus animals, & overall made it far too magical & fairytale-like for my taste.

I am anxious to finish up the book. Per usual the book is far better than the movie depiction.

Never know until you try. Practice makes perfect - Food adventure.
It is best not to mess with what already works. Judge a movie by its book.

I hope this luck I have been having with movie viewing continues.
Beyond Amazing.
A Japanese film from '08.
I was reminded of these two songs while watching...

After all this has passed, I still will remain
After I've cried my last, there'll be beauty from pain
- Beauty from Pain by Superchick

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay be down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
- If I Die Young by The Band Perry
