Thank you, Ashton…or Chris

Chris “Ashton” Kutcher gave a really FANTASTIC speech at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. I know most of you did not watch it live :). First of which we learned that his real first name is Chris and not Ashton. Damn actors.

Here is Ashton’s Speech;

Please youth of America, take note!

Thank you Chris Ashton.

The Way Way Back

Oh another good movie weekend. I have been waiting for this one to come out. The previews for it caught my attention!

I went to see “The Way Way Back” this past Friday night. I LOVED it. It is funny, sweet, sad and exciting all at the same time. Plus you get to see Steve Carell in a whole new light.

Way way back

Plot: 14-year-old Duncan’s summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and his daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.

Starring: Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Allison Janney, AnnaSophia Robb, Sam Rockwell, Maya Rudolph, Amanda Peet and Liam James.

PLEASE go support this movie! You will not be sorry.

The Kings of Summer

I hope you all had a good weekend! It always goes so fast.

I saw a good movie this weekend. So good, that I have to tell you all about it.

It is a little Indie film that premiered to great ratings at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It was filmed in Ohio.

Plot: Joe Toy (Nick Robinson), on the verge of adolescence, finds himself increasingly frustrated by the attempts of his single father, Frank (Nick Offerman), to manage his life. Declaring his freedom once and for all, he escapes to a clearing in the woods with his best friend, Patrick (Gabriel Basso), and a strange kid named Biaggio (Moisés Arias). He announces that they are going to build a house there, free from responsibility and parents. Once their makeshift abode is finished, the three young men find themselves masters of their own destiny, alone in the woods.

This movie is funny and entertaining. The boys cast in their roles are FANTAASTIC. Patrick’s parents are amazingly funny and so awkward.

I highly recommended going to see it if it is in a theater near you. Let me know what you think!

Last PB Class for 12 Days

Sunset. Fernandina Beach, Florida.

I am on day 5/5 in a row at Pure Barre today. My body hurts. I had to squeeze in as much as I could before I leave tomorrow for Kiawah!

PB Guilt is a real thing. The quilt of missing 12 days of Pure Barre is really setting in. I honestly feel guilty. So guilty, that I looked up the downtown Charleston studio. That’s 45 minutes away and I think the beach/swimming/biking/tennis will all be way too much fun to leave. I will just remember to tuck :).

So last Friday, Pure Barre had a “Bring on the men” night. It was so fun and very funny. There were 8 guys in the class. They sweated and didn’t have clue what was going on but they were all sore after 🙂 Thanks PB Dayton, please host another men’s night soon.

PB Men
Megan took my nephew, Jaxon and I took Jordan.

I have not heard from Cortney since yesterday morning. I try not to worry. I am sure she is having fun and I hope she is taking a lot of awesome pictures!

Kiawah tomorrow. CAN.NOT.WAIT.

Weekend

Picture

This weekend went way too fast. Well they all go fast!

Went over for a cookout over at Cortney and Tristan’s place on Friday (Cortney has been my best friend since about 8th grade). I drank way too much Riesling and Fireball Whiskey. If you have not had Fireball you are missing out. It is a cinnamon whiskey. Goes down like candy 🙂

Had Pure Barre on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Both classes kicked my ass. I am getting so much better at everything and really starting to notice a difference in my body. So worth it.

Saturday night was awesome. Went with the family to the new Columbus Casino (Hollywood). I lost all my money. One of the guys I work with is in a group called “Touch” and they performed at the casino! A bunch of us from work went up to support him.

Touch

They are such a fun Motown group who sing so many old classics along with some new stuff. I mean how awesome are those gold suits?

Here is a clip I found on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pmoo6BdwYH0 (The gentleman I work with, Spoon, is the one with the solo parts)! They may be on the new TV show coming to NBC called “The Winner is” starting in July. Keep an eye out! 😉

Finished the weekend off by playing our first 7.5 combo match with my Mom as my partner! We lost but we played really well and had fun.

Sad it is Monday but next weekend is going to be so much fun! Tim McGraw concert with Cortney followed by a night in Put In Bay together for one of our friends Bachelorette parties! I have a feeling I will not be drinking for a while after this weekend. Yikes.

How was your weekend?
