The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

Summer Movies!

On Friday, I worked a night shift, so I had the morning to myself. Keira was at daycare for a few hours so that she could play and that I could get some work in and get some sleep in order to stay awake for the shift to come. I'm such a wimp when it comes to sleeping now. I'm usually in bed and asleep by 7PM in order to get up for work lately since I normally work at 3:30am. Keira and Dan tuck me in by pulling my blankets over me and singing me a "night night song". Hey! Shouldn't I be the one tucking her in??? Well, I guess it doesn't really matter because she LOVES the routine- she even gets my earplugs for me! LOL

Well, since I had a couple of hours to spare in the morning, I decided to go and see Sex and the City! I watched the show every week when it was on HBO and even though sometimes their characters would get on my nerves with their shallowness---it still was all in all a fun show. Since Dan didn't want to be banished into the room while I watched MY show on MY night (Hey! I can't tell you how many episodes of American Chopper, American Thunder or Myth Busters that I've seen with him lol) he usually ended up watching it with me.

Boy was I excited when I heard they were making a movie! I really missed watching the new episodes on Sunday Nights when it finally ended. I've seen every episode at least twice and couldn't wait to see where their characters left off when we saw them last. I think that I can honestly say that I was most excited about this movie coming out this summer than any other...Well, Indiana Jones and Mummy 3 as well (Dan's sister Kat just wrapped up working on effects on this film not long ago).

They were showing it at 9:15am at the big theatre in Vista, so I headed over after dropping Keira off. I was thinking to myself along the's going to feel silly to be the only person there at the theatre that early! Boy was I wrong! There was a line of people for that early showing...all women of course and 1 guy lol.

What's the consensus? I absolutely LOVED it! Now granted, everyone there seemed to love it because only people that were already fans would be there that early in the morning to watch it. For someone that hadn't watched the show before, it probably wouldn't be that great.

I was so happy to finally get to see a movie this Summer. There are so many coming out (or ones that have already come out) that just look great! Dan and I decided that on Mondays since we are both home early, that we are going to try and see 1 movie a week or every other week. Kind of like a "Date Day". It should be fun!

Glad to hear you got some time for yourself to watch the movie. I'll be honest with you, I use to watch it too when it was on.
