Guidettes like to Hike

Well... that weekend went by fast.

Wednesday: Book Club discussing "The Lovely Bones"

{Mini-Oprahs- I'm on the far Left. I highly recommend this book}

Friday Night: I was out downtown for 2 of my friends' birthdays.

{Kiesha, Megan, Shanin, Me, Miranda and Tracy}

Saturday: I went to go see "The Lovely Bones" in the theater and then spent the night in with my girlfriends drinking tea, eating Popcorn and watching girly movies- including Vicky Christina Barcelona.

{I heart being a Girl}

Have you seen that movie? I thought it was pretty scantily good. And Lordy, even when Penelope Cruz is playing someone batsh*t crazy - she still manages to look viciously magnificent.

{I've been a bad, bad girl...}

Sunday: I hung out at my friend Kristi's as we made a Spaghetti dinner and watched the Golden Globes- the highlight of that? Please see my post from yesterday.

Monday: Every year, I like to honor the baller that is Martin Luther King Jr. by doing something freeing on his Day. So The Boy and I headed out to Silver Falls State Park to hike in the fresh air. Silver Falls has 10 waterfalls (4 of which you can walk behind). It's so amazing and SUCH a nice thing to do.

PS- the following pictures are in no way supposed to have anything to do with fashion. I only believe in an outfit like this when I'll be out in the Mud- which, I was :)

{Far Above: Me in front of South Falls. Above: The Boy and Me in front of South Falls}

{Above Left: Me & Maddie mid-hike. Above Right: Waterfall. Below: View from BEHIND the waterfall}

{Above: The Boy and South Falls in the background. Below: The 3 of us on our hike: The Boy, Me and Maddie- my family dog.}

{Above: Base of waterfall. Below: Maddie miserable as I hold her- note the waterfall in the back Right. Geez- could I be whiter? I miss tanning.}

So now it's back to the day-to-day: Bah humbug.

1 thing keeping me going this week:

My Friend's Jersey Shore Birthday Party on Saturday.

Ohhhh, the possibilities!

I am an Italian- so it's my greatest hope my Nonna isn't too upset with me for making myself a Guidette for the night.

{Should I be JWoww, Angelina, Snooki or Sammi? All I know is I'm wearing Ed Hardy and will be sporting Orange skin}

Have a fist-pumpin' Tuesday!

PS- for those who asked. I definitely recommend the book "The Lovely Bones" and I suggest you read it BEFORE you see the movie. Peter Jackson changed the film quite a bit and I felt that if I hadn't read it first, I may have been totally lost in his depiction of the story. So, I was kind of disappointed with the film but I would still recommend it because it's was very good, just missed some of the main points of the book that I thought should have made it in!

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Oh the Lovely Bones, the name sounds so lovely. Can't wait for it to come out here, I remember I liked the trailer even if I don't remember what the movie's all about lol I saw Vicky Christina Barcelona and my impressions are kind of weird... I saw it when it came out and thought it was good, the only thing I regretted is that I went to the movies - me and a freind got an impression it was the kind of a mivie that is better watched at home under a blanket and with some fine red wine. Then I actually traveled to Barcelona (was my first time there) and decided I wanted to watch the movie after the trip again, and I just coudln't :S I didn't like anything of what was on my screen any more for soem reason.

And btw, I love dhow you put that in one of your comment under my post - "You get to be all these different girls just by being you" :) Thanks :)

Meg said...

I enjoy hearing what women do on their "girly days". Sounds like you had a good one. I think I'll read 'The Lovely Bones' and skip the flick.

Looking forward to seeing your 'Jersey Shore' outfit.

You should send some good weather here...we are freezing

Sierra said...

Glad you enjoyed the movies, The Lovely Bones looks really good! I love waterfalls...they are just so beautiful!

Melissa said...

I always have trouble with books made into movies. Its like they are good but it just seems like they always leave good or important things out. And sometimes they cast people that don't fit what I had in mind for a certain character(s) and it bugs me. The only movies I have liked better than their books were "A Walk to Remember" and "The Notebook". I don't really think Nicholas Sparks is that great of a writer. He comes up with good base stories but doesn't execute them as well as I would like so when they adapt the book into the movies they actually turn out better than the books because the make the changes to make the story go from good to AMAZING!!

Nathalie said...

I want to got to there :) The place you went hiking is amazing. So great
