Sex and the Suburbs

Over the weekend my sister and I went to see Sex and the City. However, we did not see it in the city. We went to the deep 'burbs. In a minivan. I was mortified, but as it was a free ticket and a free ride, who am I to complain? (Thanks, sis!)

We both ended up loving it, despite the host of mixed reviews. I thought Samantha threatened to steal every scene she was in. She was absolutely delightful. But note to Jennifer Hudson: stick to singing!

One scene was particularly bittersweet to me because it reminded me of the time I moved out of my bachelorette pad in the city. It was an exciting time - moving in with Mr Hazel (to the 'burbs, but still...) and starting new adventures together. But it was also sad because I loved my apartment and leaving it signaled the end of my wild and wacky girl bachelor days.

Watching a similar scene in the movie made me tear up in nostalgia.

And my favorite montage? Why, the wedding gown photo shoot, of course!

SATC rocked my world, man! And you didn't tell everyone that despite the matronly ways we saw the movie, we both were pretty stylin. As were the rest of the female-viewing audience. I haven't seen that many well-dressed chicks attending a movie since...well, never. It was our own way of dressing in costume, wasn't it? A'la putting on a Jedi outfit to watch Star Wars.

That's right! We were totally stylin'!

I went for casual, BUT I was wearing a t-shirt from SJP's Bitten line! I don't think SJP is your conventional pretty girl, but I thought her face looked gorgeous during the wedding gown photo shoot!

"I could be on death row and not have that situation happening," Samantha said with a disdainful hand gesture that encompassed Miranda's nether regions.
