It’s been a busy, busy week in the best of ways — spending time with family. We started the week hosting JB’s mom in our guest room, and on Wednesday, she turned over the room to my parents, who will be visiting through the weekend. Because we wanted to take both of our parents to our favorite steakhouse in Omaha, The Drover, JB and I will be eating red meat twice in one week. Oh well, I say. Bring on the whiskey filet!
My parents offered to babysit Levi tomorrow night so that JB and I can go on a date. A proper date! Since I’ll likely still be stuffed from my steak dinner tonight, I’m thinking JB and I should have a date night at the movies. The last big movie premiere I remember hearing about was “Oz: The Great and Powerful.” Did anybody see that? Was it good? Actually, the cheap movie theater is playing a few movies I think I’m more interested in watching: “Argo,” “Lincoln,” “Warm Bodies” (the zombie movie), and “Les Miserables.” However, it’s a small cinema without stadium seating, and the acoustics for Les Mis may actually be better in our living room. Something to consider when making our decision…
Here’s what we chatted about on the blog this week:
