Birthday parties, concerts and knights - oh my!

So, my week of craziness has finally come to a close. *phew* It was a long, but fun-filled week of birthday celebrations for my kiddos.

Here is a quick journal of the week's events:

It started with a Pump it UP birthday party for my son, who turned eight this week. *sniff, sniff* He's getting so big! (Sidenote - I'm SO getting one of those thrones for my next birthday.)

I followed that long, semi-exhausting night with a 30 Seconds to Mars Concert, VIP style - a present for my now 13 year old daughter. *no sniffels for her, I'm stoked she's getting older* :)

In reality, the concert was more like a day long event, since we left at 1pm and got home at 1am.But it was a flippin' blast! Doesn't she look happy? :) The boys all told her happy birthday, and Jared Leto gave her a hug!

Oh, and Jared Leto jumped on me! :) Now, how many times in your life can you say that? (well, for those of us who aren't Paris Hilton.) hehehe See, here is the picture to prove it --->>

Then, over the weekend, I took a jaunt to Chicago, where we saw the dinner and tournament show, Medieval Times, (after a lot of playing in the hotel pool of course.) The dinner was great. Being a new rabbit eater, I had the vegetarian meal for the first time and it was amazing! Yummy roasted veggies and a portabella mushroom cap with beans and rice. Mmm.

On the entertainment side, the show was great! Both my daughter and I were given flowers by our knight...
My son had a new tunic and a dagger to wave around, so he was happy as could be...And our knight actually won! That never happens when we go there.

Now, I could post pics of the tourney, joust or the
horses, but come you REALLY want to see those? Me neither. *grin* Instead, here are some pics me with the hotties...erm, I mean knights. :)

And yes, I am sitting on their laps. Personally, I think they like me there. *grins*

Aww, aren't they all just so cute? I wish I could take them home with me. :)

Anyway, I guess that's my week in a nutshell. When you look at it here, it doesn't look crazy at all. But believe me...I'z tired and need a nap! Too bad tomorrow is Monday. Ugh!

Until next time....

Just so you don't think I'm biased...

...this is the trailer for one of my favorite movies of all time...King Arthur (director's cut, not Walt Disney's cut)

This trailer (as friggin' awesome as the movie is) still kinda sucks. Nothing is as good as the movie.

If you haven't seen it, rent it. If you haven't rented it, buy it. It is one of the best movies of the decade and quite close to being one of the best of the century.

Enjoy! (for the record, I'm a "Tristan" gal. Love the falcon and the sword. ;)

Yummy Prince

And not the Purple Rain variety. *smiles* I saw this trailer and now officially cannot wait to see this movie! Call me crazy, but ever since I saw Jake G in Brokeback Mountain, I've been enamored with the guy. (He was great in Proof too, one of my favorite movies. :)

Now, I know what you're thinking - "A Disney movie, based on a video game that was cool like ten years ago...really, Meagan?" But a few years back, I remember thinking - "A Disney movie, based on a mediocre ride at their theme-park?" and I think we all really enjoyed that little flick. So who knows? The trailer looks pretty sweet. And although the heroine's 'Angelina Jolie from Tomb Raider' voice impersonation is already getting on my nerves, Jake's biceps...erm, I mean the effects look stellar. *grin*

What do you think? Do you have another movie you can't wait to see this summer?
