Monsters vs. Aliens…


Okay, so this is a kids’ movie that I am excited about!!  Dreamworks has really got comedy on lockdown.  I am pretty sure that in Kung Fu Panda, the Shreks, and Over the Hedge, I belly laughed more in the theater than my kids!  Hope they’ll let me go see this one with them and not cower in embarrassment.

So folks, that’s about all for me this weekend.  Help me out!  Know of some fun events?  Post a comment!! A stress-free and more dependable me will be back next Thursday!
