DINNER AND A MOVIE...IT'S OSCAR NIGHT
How has your weekend been?
Are many of you buried in snow and waking up to those bone-chilling temps this AM?
Hey...it's a night at The Oscars!
I am so looking forward to seeing the gowns and
wondering who will take home the golden boy!
We had a rather good Saturday.
A tad of winter weather is rolling in tonight.
so we made the most of yesterday....
out and about shopping...
then treated ourselves to dinner and a movie!
I was happy, happy, happy to see Easter on display at Target!
I found just the inspiration I was looking for.
Have you bought any new bunnies yet?
The darling invited me to attend a showing of one of the Oscar nominated films,
"The Imitation Game!"....
so it was off to Plano to one of our favorite upscale theaters!
Look at these stunning pansies!
I wish I had two planters this size for around the swimming pool!
Think I'll work on that idea!
We certainly do enjoy this theater! Such a treat!
OK...we always try to see as many of the Oscar nominated films every year.
This year, we have seen five out of the eight films nominated.
THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL
THE IMITATION GAME
The Imitation Game is wonderful and most enjoyable. A+ acting by every single actor.
The Grand Budapest was also at the top of our favorites. I have watched it three times!
Boyhood was a long movie, but it was so interesting....seeing all of the actors age over the course of the twelve year filming, in addition seeing the movie filmed in Austin. Birdman was a disappointment. Now, we simply adore Michael Keaton, but it seems this movie was written and filmed by some Hollywood far-out actor...we felt it was a dark and unpleasant film. American Sniper is probably at the top of our list. Chris Kyle is a true American hero and is very well known here in Texas. Bradley Cooper was superb! So....our top three favorites would be American Sniper, The Imitation Game and The Grand Budapest Hotel!
Time for cocktails and dinner at our favorite spot in this fabulous shopping area!
We discussed the moview over a glass of wine and the darling's highball.
We ordered our favorite appetizer of Fried Pickles!
Shrimp and Grits!
Cajun Red Beans and Rice!
The Shops of Legacy is a fantastic area to shop, dine and take in a movie!
Especially when the weather turns a bit warmer!
We'll be back!
What a lovely February Saturday!
Now....getting ready for Oscar night!
What was your favorite film this year?
