Failed to Launch

Ummm, the chemistry between Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew McCaughnahey is about as sizzling as... this wet March weather.
Jeff and I went to see Failure to Launch last night, and I have to say it was thoroughly disappointing. The only fun I had was seeing Sarah Jessica Parker's cute outfits. I honestly think I could have done a better job with the writing myself, and the acting was pretty bad. Matthew needs a new agent, or at least some help in picking out scripts. This one was frighteningly similar to How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days, with the lying, the token 2 guy friends, etc. Now How to Lose a Guy...THAT was a good movie. Kate Hudson and Matt had incredible chemistry (I have to ask SJP, how is it possible to not have chemistry with MATTHEW MCCAUGHNAHEY???).
Anyway, hope I didn't burst anyone's bubble... I just had to share my disappointment.

I'm going wedding dress shopping with my BFF from highschool tomorrow. I'm so excited! It's going to be WEIRD seeing her in a wedding dress. It's probably going to be just as weird for her too see me with a baby in my belly, as I haven't seen her since last summer. Anyway, I'm writing about this because she most likely has already picked out our bridesmaids dresses, and I'm thrilled because they're from JCREW (where was JCREW when I got married??) and less than $100. Here's a picture:

Isn't it cute?? The wedding is outside on 10/1/06 and I'm SO hoping that I'll have lost the baby weight by then. But still have big boobs and a great tan! Oh, and apparently, the shoes are really cute flip flops. I love this! It's like what I'd wear to the wedding anyway! There's nothing worse than being stuck with having to pay like $400 for shoes and a dress you'll never wear again.

So HAPPY SAINT PATTIES DAY, everyone! Will one of you non-preggies please chug a green beer for me?

I am surprised about Failure to Launch, I figured it'd be good. Not like I'll see it until it comes out on DVD anyway,lol.

The dress is beautiful. I did something similar for my wedding, picked out something they would definately be able to wear again and only 100 dollars too. Take care.

I had a feeling that movie wouldn't be too good. Everywhere I look, I've seen Matthew plugging it, and I sorta sensed a little desperation there.

As for that pretty dress. Love it!

I LOVE that dress! I can't wait to get back into cute stuff like that. My future sister in law is actually in a wedding soon, and they're wearing dresses from J. Crew as well. It may actually be the same dress, just in an espresso color.

FTL looked exactly like How to Lose a Guy to me...haven't seen it yet though. I'm in a wedding 3 weeks after my due date...YIKES!!

I love the dress. Super duper cute! And the flip-flops sounds really cute also.

I'm sure you'll be down to your pre-pregnancy weight in 3 weeks!! (I say that to you because I'm hoping I'll get rid of all my weight before I leave the hospital...haa-haa!)

Somebody was just telling me how great Failure to Launch was! I'll see for myself when it comes out on TBS in 15 years or so.

I have that dress! Let me tell you, it is by far the most comfortable article of clothing I own. It feels like somebody wrapped gause around your body. I love it and wish I could wear it more!
