oh yummy!

on friday, a few of us girls descended on sarah's house to enjoy yummy soups and salad, and of course, to relish in great conversation and, most importantly, to bask in the joys of time without kids.

and while we were there, we figured we might as well take five hours to watch pride and prejudice (a & e version). i mean, come on, we didn't have to take care of any kids, so might as well take our time getting home, right?!

this was during a dvd change around 10:30pm, about 3 hours into the movie! (l to r: elizabeth, janine, darilyn, bridget, merilee, stephanie. along the back is sarah, and i am across the middle) you probably can't see the red vines, buttered popcorn, dark chocolate m & m's, toffee covered peanuts and wassil littering the table, but we sure indulged ourselves that night!

there's not much better than a great night with friends! i always enjoy getting together with the girls. the talk is always stimulating and full of laughter! it refuels me for another week of tackling kids and household chores!

plus, who, besides bridget, wouldn't want to look at him for 5 hours??

Yeah!! What a great picture of everyone! That was fun. Hey, I never said he was ugly or anything, just not quite up to the hype.

We need to do our girls night in Feb. sooner rather than later. They always seem so far between.

Uninterrupted Pride & Prejudice? Woohoo!! If only they could have made the movie long enough to do it real justice. :-)

awww how fun! I remember when I was in high school and watch the whole Pride and Prejudice with Andie and Camille one night we had a slumber party at camille's! we weren't even trying to escape from children or anything.... so mature we were huh? haha jk... but what fun memories!

Elizabeth said...

Hey, that picture of Mr. Darcy turned out really well! What a fun night that was!

Becca said...

Looks like a fun time. Although, I am with Bridget I don't think "Mr. Darcy" is that good looking. I haven't seen the movie so maybe it's all about the character. Did Bridget get her hair chopped or is it just pulled back?

Yes, I could do more than look at him for five hours...YUMMA HUMMA!

Amanda said...

How fun! How great that you are albe to get together with such a great group of women for some fun regularly...just a little jealous over here!

I'm with Bridget and Becca though. He is okay, but there are others I would rather stare at for five hours!

Merilee said...

I'm having a hard time coming up with a comment with that gorgeous face staring at me that way. It's hard to look away!

That was a fun night. Thanks for the little documentary!

What a fun night! Is it horrible that I've never seen Pride and Prejudice? Thankfully I have a friend here that is quickly trying to remedy that problem. I have, however, just started reading the book. Maybe that's bad to admit that too...that I haven't read it sooner, but I'm getting there!

Loved it! Honestly, I don't think that I've ever been amongst such an intense group of fans! I personally think P&P is a REALLY hilarious movie and it was fun to watch it with the people who enjoyed the humor of it!

This is my all-time favorite movie! Now I have to watch it again.

I ended up with two copies - one to lend out, and one to watch over and over and over.

I thought it was more like 8 hours. I usually put this dvd in my computer when I have some homework to do and can't look at the screen full time. (just in the important parts). This and "The Importance of Being Earnest" another favorite with Colin Firth. That must have been a great night! Friends are so important!
