Just got home from the movies with my daughter Christi and a friend of hers Tammy from her high school days.  We saw Burlesque with Cher and Christina Aquilar and with risking my reputation here in blog land I actually enjoyed the movie. I know it has received terrible reviews but the three of us really liked it.

Those two girls are in the living room laughing and catching up on old times. It is fun to hear them laughing just like the ole times.

It made me feel young and that I could get up out of that chair and swing my legs up and shake my boobs just like they were doing. Well you will be glad to know that because of my back I kept seated. lol

Cher has no wrinkles so I guess Botox does work. Chrsitina belted out some good songs and Cher preformed two long ones herself. The costumes were everything I always wanted to wear when I had a figure but never did. Now I would be shot if seen in one of them.

This short wig that Christina put on for several songs was too cute. I wore my hair similar to this at one time and have wanted to again. You can not see how cute a cut it is from this picture.

I am glad I did not read reviews of the movie before seeing it because it would of kept me at home. It reminded me of the movie Chicago but of course not as good.

So yes I liked it. Silly as it may have been it was fun watching to the three of us. Let me know if you have seen it and what you thought of Burlesque.

Hope you had as nice of a Thanksgiving holiday as I did with my family. Everything was good about the day especially Kaci and Bailey entertaining us. They played sherades and were too darn funny. I had them write our names for place settings on some cut out pumpkins. Then I let them decide how they wanted everyone to sit. It was great fun for them and turned out great how they had us setting. I loved it.

If I had not fixed a lot of things a head of time there is no way I could of enjoyed my day. Who wants to be in the kitchen cooking the whole time. I found the best ever corn recipe from a blog that Christi fixed for us and I thought it was better than any corn I had ever eaten. It was a big hit. I will have to find the site and give it to you.  My son Chad made the best Pumpkin Cheesecake too. Wow yummy. My dressing thank goodness was really tasty and yea for leftovers. lol

The best thing about this week is Christi came here for the whole week to help me so I would not over do it with my back. What a big help she was with everything. She will be leaving tomorrow evening and I will miss having her here. She even offered tommorrow to put up my Christmas tree and my take her up on the offer.

Well I am off to try a piece of that cheesecake again. haha  Starting in January my goal is to loose 36 pounds by October of next year. Gary and Sherry are getting married at her home place in Tennessee so Sherry and I have made up our minds to do it. Want to join in on the fun? It will be hard but I so want to do this.

Gretchen finally made it back from London and she loved it there. Can not wait to catch up on her trip.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Sweet Dreams

So happy you enjoyed your family at Thanksgiving. I may have to make a point of seeing this movie. We haven't really kept up with any movie at all in AGES.
Not certain we are going to do much in the way of decorations this Christmas. So much trouble putting everything away afterwards.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs & ♥♥♥s

Hi Maggie, We have all spent some wonderful time with family as they grow up so very fast. We all eat more then we should at the holidays. My daughter-in-law did the cooking for the family. She is a wonderful cook. The desert was a three berry pie, pumpkin roll, pumkin pie, and my daughter brought a white cake, that her son Ethan,5, helped decorate.
The boys ages 11,6. 5 love helping with things.
The movie sounded like it would be fun to watch. We haven't been to the show for a long time. Take your daughter up on helping put up your tree. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Your Missouri Friend.

So glad to hear from a real person about Burlesque. I do like Cher and thought I would also defy the reviews. I mean, what do they know.
Glad you had such a nice time and good luck with the pounds. I have gained 2 of my 16 back and dread Christmas parties.
I'll join you after the first of the year.

Donna said...

I'm with you on the weight loss thing too! (always) Looks like you had a great time at the show! Love your description of feeling young again...shking boobs etc. I dream about being young and having that body! We always go see something Thanksgiving weekend too...tradition. Hope your back feels better soon!!

Thanks for the review. When it comes out in Netflix, I'll order it to watch. I just love Netflix.

Glad you had a wonderful time with your family. Hugs, Marla

Tracy said...

I never read reviews...who are 'they' to tell me what I will like or not like? I love Cher and can't wait to go see the movie, even if I have to go myself!
I love the energy you provided by your description of you all shaking your boobs; hey, if you have it, flaunt it!
So glad you enjoyed your holiday; isn't that what it is all about?

Sue said...

I will definitely join you on the losing weight thing...I need to lose 30 or 40 pounds myself!

Sounds like your holidays have been wonderful. That Christi is great!

As for Burlesque, how did Julianne Hough do?

Hi Maggie, I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving. I heard Cher looked great in Burlesque.

Sounds as if THanksgiving was a big success as well as the entire week.

We were slouches and went to Senior Center as they needed to money. Unfortunately the reservations fell far short of actual attendance due to rainy weather but meal was nice, not exceptional, but we didn't expect sensational.

We are simply thankful! Despite all the warts this country is still the best in the world....and we have lived and traveled in others.

Nezzy said...

Oh Honey, I'm so glad you enjoyed your day. I prepare as much as I can ahead but with the slew of folks we had here I ran nonstop! I was pulmb tuckered by the end of the day!

I want to see the movie even though the reviews weren't promisin'. Heck, some of my favorite moves didn't get great shout~outs!

God bless ya and have a fun weekend sweetie and please be very, very careful shakin' your 'stuff'. We want ya all healed up girlfriend! :o)

Sniveling, sniffing, kleenex time ... I missed you to talk with, Maggie. Chuckle, but I truly did miss you.

So glad you had Christi there to enjoy & help you with all ... I know you will miss them all. The kid-lings always add such a loving memory to events, don't they ... they have such a special way to bring delight & joy.

I am so TIMED, oh, yes I am!, that I don't like anyone to help me & yet can pull it all off to put it all out piping hot at once. Here, let me give you another strawberry daiquiri, sit down & stay outta my way ... chuckle!

Hugs of love my precious friend ... we'll talk later this week.

Happy PS ...
Have a beautiful weekend.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon
