Movies, Food, Shopping

We had Summer Movie Fun yesterday. It was the TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) movie. We had already rented it, so we knew it was pretty good. It wasn't quite as chaotic in the theater because I think the families with mostly girls may have stayed home thinking it's just a 'boy' movie. Most of us got there about the same time & there were plenty of seats for us. So we got to sit together again. The kids LOVE sitting with their friends! They are really enjoying going to the movies, even if they are older movies! So, THANKS for talking me into it JULIE and ALICIA!

After the movie, Alicia and I strolled over to Bath & Body Works to reap the benefits of their HUGE Summer Clearance sale (that ends soon). I got a couple wallflower refills (only $5 each) in my fave scent - Cinnamon & Clove buds! They were all out at another location. I already stocked up on their anti-bacterial soaps (5 for $15 or 7 for $20) the day before. They also had a really cool new product, so of course they were all out of it, but the kids got to try it.

It's called POP Culture Celebrity Shimmer Body Mousse - Coconut Crush scent. The lady sprayed it on the kids' arms - it looks like mousse and it crackles (like Rice Krispies in milk). It crackles while you rub it in too. Then it's shimmery (esp in the sunlight) and smells really good! Now I want to find it somewhere. If you find it, please let me know. So far, Stapley/Baseline and Tempe Marketplace didn't have it. Maybe at the malls.

I've taken the kids to the FREE school lunch this week (we missed Monday, but made it Tues-Thursday). They don't do it on Fridays, but another location does it. The kids love it because they've never really eaten school lunches. They always take a lunch. So this is fun for them. It's just for kids, so I watch them eat then we leave. I wouldn't want to eat it anyway. Not a big fan of school lunches, that's why I pack their lunch. But this is free (only in June) and it's fun for them!

BTW - if you're looking for some great scrapbooking inspiration, check out DSO blog. First of all, there's a daily designer spotlight and a FREE download-a-day mini kit (or half of one - get the other half on another day). This month's theme is BOYS!! And now, they're starting gallery highlights of some really beautiful layouts that stand out! You should check it out! These layouts are really incredible and inspiring!! You can also browse thru the gallery too.

Now I'm off to eat a late breakfast and finish my season finale of LOST!!
