A Night for the Girls

Last night my boys were off doing "guy" things; and so I decided that all of us girls left at home should do something fun ourselves. I made a run into town for a fun meal that I didn't have to make (Sonics); but then I was left with the decision of which movie to watch. We have a few that we have been wanting to see, but just haven't had the time. After pondering the situation for a few minutes, I chose a Jane Austen movie. In my mind one can never go wrong with Jane Austen. She is one of my all-time favorite authors, but more on that in another post. I opted for Masterpiece Theatre: Northanger Abbey. I haven't seen this movie before, and it has been a while since I read the book. The movie was good, and I would watch it again; however, I do plan on pulling my copy of the book off of the shelf to read once again, because I know that an 86 minute movie can in no way do justice to the actual work itself.

Love Jane Austen! Sounds like everyone had a great evening.

You forgot to add that we had chocolate cream pie for dessert. A girls night would not be complete without dessert! Now I want to read my copy of Northanger Abby after seeing the movie too. Thanks for the fun night!
