A couple of weeks ago I entered a contest through Maple Pictures Corp. on facebook to win a double screening pass to see this summers “Manliest” movie, The Expendables. I won!
It’s an action flick that stars some of Hollywoods greatest, playing a group of mercenaries – according to critics so far it’s something any action movie fanatic would want to see.
A week later I entered another contest for screening passes to “The Switch” a Rom-Com starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman. About a woman who wants to become a mom through artificial insemination and there’s a “switch” along the way. It looks really good & I love Jen Aniston movies. Well, I won that too.
Now at first Hubby & I were planning two date nights until I realized they are a week apart and next to impossible to find a sitter both nights. I decided to give up my ticket to the Expendables.
My father in laws eyes lit up when he saw the double pass ticket, I know he would enjoy this with non other than his son. Yes, I wanted to see this movie but it will come out on DVD eventually but my Hubby & his dad attending a prescreening of such an epic movie is a one time deal. Seeing how happy they are about it is well worth it. Besides, hubby and I can make up for it on our Anniversary in September. 😉
With that, I decided I’ll bring my mother in law to see “The Switch”.
We have never been out just the two of us and she’s never been to a screening event, I hope she enjoys the evening as well. It’ll give us that Mother in law/Daughter in law time.
It’s not often we get the chance to do something like this for others, it feels good seeing ones we care about smile.
Until next time…Keep dreaming always…
