Jenny Turns The Big 2-9 (again)!

Yes. I am old, and I am getting gray hair on my right and left temples to prove it. 

Marty took me out Saturday to see a wonderful movie, "The King's Speech." I loved that movie. I have not gone to many movies; in fact, I have only seen the Twilight movies in the past three years. Before that, I don't even think I had been to a movie in years. I refuse to pad the already thick wallets of the liberal Hollywood elite. I made an exception for Mr. Darcy, I mean Colin Firth. He and Geoffrey Rush did an amazing job. Actually, all the actors did. If you are a fan of the original BBC Pride and Prejudice miniseries, you will enjoy seeing Mr. Collins and Miss Elizabeth Bennett in this movie. I loved this movie so much I would really consider paying full-price admission to see it again. (For the record, I must be honest. We used Cinemark gift cards and movie passes to get in and pay for the popcorn and Diet Cokes).

After the movie, we went to the Cheesecake Factory. It seems to be a tradition for my birthday. They have such yummy dinners, not to mention the delectable desserts. I still have leftovers to eat for lunch today.

On Sunday, we had family over for cake and ice cream. Actually, there was no ice cream. Just whipped cream. Same diff: lots of sugar and fat, but oh so yummy! I got money, gift cards, a much-needed apron, and a BYU sweatshirt. Marty knows me so well. My old sweatshirt was frayed and ripped; I had to throw it away last year. Thanks sweetie. And thank you Dave for braving the "great and spacious" building that you Utah fans refer to as the WILK!
