I will admit, when I heard about the movie, Maleficent, I was less than thrilled to see it. It just didn’t seem like my kind of movie. I don’t know why, but I was adamant that I was not going to see it…and I didn’t. I didn’t see it in the theater. My kids and husband did, however and they came home absolutely RAVING about the movie. Once again, I made the wrong choice when it came to seeing a movie at the theater!

First of all, doesn’t Angelina Jolie look amazing?!? As good as she looked in this movie, she gave an even better performance. Minutes into watching this movie, I could see exactly why my kids and husband raved about this movie. I can see why this movie grossed more than $700 million!

Today is my husband's birthday!! He's out of town for work, but we can't wait to celebrate when he gets home!

Other than that, I'm absolutely … [Read More...]
