I was SO excited for tonight because the Husband and I had a date planned with Nicole and Isaac to see 127 Hours.
Do you remember hearing about this back in 2003? A hiker named Aron got his arm trapped underneath a heavy boulder while walking through a canyonâ€¦ and he was all aloneâ€¦ and no one knew where he was. I was FASCINATED by the story when it came out so I was super pumped to see it come to life â€“ plus, it had amazing reviews, and I was very curious how they could make one dude all alone in a canyon into a 90-minute film.
Also, we got to go to the Manor Theatre, which is a local place (only two showings at a time!) that Iâ€™ve been dying to check out.
The movie was great. Iâ€™m always so inspired by what people can survive when push comes to shove. I think Iâ€™m obsessed with crazy survival stories because of this couple:
I couldnâ€™t find an English version of this exact book cover and now theyâ€™ve redesigned it, but I remember the story so well! The book was called â€œOur Last Chanceâ€ and was about a couple who was adrift in the ocean for 60+ days. The man came and talked to our school when I was in 5th grade and I never forgot it! So crazy.
In comparison, my day seems rather tame. :) But thatâ€™s fine with me. I worked all afternoon and ruined my dinner by this:
I shouldâ€™ve frozen the cookies right away, but instead I left them sitting on the countertop, smelling delicious and tempting me all afternoon. I have no idea how many thumbprint cookies I ate, but every bite was worth it!
Hummus and toast. Plus roasted Brussel sprouts with melted cheddar cheese on top (this.was.delicious).
The Girls on the Run 5K is tomorrow AM!
