It was about a guy who loved this really popular girl and although he was on the poorer side he saved his college fund to ask her out on a really special date - when all along he was really in love with his best friend who was a girl. If you love 80's movies anyway you should check it out ;)
The craziest part of the movie was that Lea Thompson's character was Amanda Jones and to start the movie off she was dating an a-hole football player named Hardy Jenns.
Now are you thinking the same thing I am?! How weird!!! Hardy is such an uncommon first name, not only was it used in a movie, but the girlfriends name was Amanda Jones! Ha I remember telling my mom it was the weirdest thing. What was even crazier is that at the time I saw this movie, Hardy and I were taking a break if you wanna call it that and I had gone on a couple of dates with Keith Stevens...to add more weirdness, the "poor" guy from the movie who had a thing for Amanda Jones was named Keith. Obviously none of us were anything like the characters from the movie, but I thought the name link was insane.
Now entering The Twilight Zone...

Saturday my mom, stepdad and younger brother came for a visit. They brought the crib my aunt let us have and we spent the day shopping. I got a really cute pair of black leggings from Target, scored three maternity tops from Goodwill in Buford (thanks to my mom for picking them out because on the rack they didn't appeal to me, but on they did). We also hit up JCPenny and found some shorts and capris. I'm really disappointed more department stores don't carry maternity clothes (and I mean more than two racks worth). JCPenny had a decent collection though and I think I'm all stocked up for summer! Thank you mom :)
We did check out Kid to kid in Buford and the store is really cute. They had a ton of gently worn clothes for babies and kids as well as maternity. All decently priced from why I browsed through. Unfortunately I didn't find any suitable clothes for me there...I've come to find I prefer the full belly panel on maternity pants, not just the wide waistband. The wide waistband makes me look like I have a muffin top, not like I'm pregnant. JCPenny was perfect because they had full panel shorts and capris.
We ended the day with some hot Krispy Kreme donuts.
Sunday I enjoyed a pedicure :). We got gift cards from work a while back for Administrative Professionals Day and I finally put it to use.

We saw commercials for it over Memorial Day weekend and set our DVR to record it and we finally finished. In total it's 6hrs, broken in to 2hr segments.
Excellent acting...I can't say enough about that part. It's sad that the families feuded for as long as they did. Certainly a neat history lesson. It does have some pretty heart tugging moments, but it wouldn't be a true story if they left those parts out.
So check it out if you can catch a rerun or view it on demand. I believe it comes out on DVD and Blu ray July 13th.
Starring: Kevin Costner & Bill Paxton

How far along? 22 Weeks
Size of the baby? Approx 11" from head to toe and 1lb / aka a spaghetti squash
Maternity clothes? I snagged some white (never worn Motherhood) shorts on our weekend excursion to the Unclaimed Baggage place, but I definitely need more than just 2 pair of bottoms, there's no way I can wear my normal pants/shorts now and when I try I either "bust slack" by wearing them below my belly or I don't look pregnant, I look like I have a giant muffin top.
Stretch marks? No
Weight gained: I don't weigh myself at home, so I won't know until my next appointment on 6/14
Sleep: I'm sleeping just fine thank goodness, in fact I've been dosing off on the couch most nights this week. I've got to work on rolling over in the middle of the night though, because this round ligament crap is getting me every time!
Movement: YES! YES! I'm definitely feeling her kick, usually happens shortly after I eat. So on my way to work and maybe for the first hour of work I feel the little kicks and then a few times in the afternoon and again in the evening.
Food cravings: None to name
Gender/Names: It's a GIRL! Persephone Layne J
Labor Signs: None, but I recently watched like a million (ok not that many) episodes of 16 & Pregnant we had recorded and several of those girls had premature scares that had me freaking out a little bit.
Belly Button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
What I miss: Still nothing really
What I am looking forward to: As Persephone grows; I'm looking forward to feeling more prominent movements. I can't wait for Hardy to be able to feel her kicking from the outside.
Best Moment of the Week: ***Realizing my brain has totally gone to mush. It makes for good LOL moments, but it's a little embarrassing and aggravating. Last night I took a bottle of water with me into the living room without a lid and ultimately it got knocked over. This morning I was pouring myself a glass of milk and I didn't hold the glass so the milk pushed it over and milk went everywhere. A few times this week when Hardy was cooking dinner I told him what sides to make with the meal and none of the sides I thought I put in the buggy were actually in our house. Looks like I just looked and thought about grabbing things at the store, but never did.
***Deciding which way I want to go with the nursery - duh it's going to be Disney themed, but I'm trying to keep it simple and modern. I don't want "baby" Disney characters or Winnie the Pooh. Hopefully we'll get it prepared in the next month or so and I can show it off :)
