I've been so busy lately, when I'm home relaxing I don't feel like leaving the house. I thought Netflix would be a good idea, home delivery of movies sounds ideal to me.
My first movie that I watched was he's just not that into you. I'm a HUGE SATC fan, and I read the book, he's just not that into you when it came out. The book was sparked by a SATC episode where Miranda was told when making excuses for a guy, that "he's just not that into you." Then, there was the movie. To be honest, I liked the book, but it could have been shorter, by the middle it just seemed repetitive to me. Long story short, don't make excuses for men, when they're into you, you'll know it.
I have to say, I really enjoyed the movie (and the reviews weren't fantastic). As I was watching it, and John was on his laptop probably looking at sports scores, but he eventually put it down and joined me. There were several characters (Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Bradly Cooper, Ginnifer Goodwin, Scarlett Johansson, Kevin Connolly, and Justin Long--seriously loved them all in this movie) and story lines to keep me in intrigued. I say, watch it! It is cute, enjoyable, honest, funny, and real.
I was doing so well with my blogging from Newport, and then it stopped. So I thought that I'd share just a little bit more about my vacation, including one more image of my bridge.
My friend Lisa and I spend most of our time on the beach reading in Newport, which was very relaxing. I read Are you there, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea written by Chelsea Handler of Chelsea Lately on E! I loved this book, light and hysterical, great book for the beach. I found myself laughing so hard I had to stop reading, several times. Lisa read Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner, which is a follow up to one of our favorite books Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner--she also wrote the book In Her Shoes which later became a movie. I just finished reading Certain Girls this weekend. It was great to revisit with one of my favorite characters from a book, Cannie.
Lisa and I found the best breakfast place while we were in Newport. Atlantic Grille is in Middletown, Rhode Island in-between first and second beach. I am a huge fan of breakfast food, and this place by far was the best ever. Check it out if you're in town for breakfast, yummy!
I took a lot of pictures of this bridge. I don't know the name of this bridge, so I called it My Bridge. This is the view of My Bridge from our hotel room.
