A First for Us

Drew and I started dating in September of 2006. So, we've been together for about 3 1/2 years. Now, there's a bunch of things that we've never done together, but one of them is not exactly expected since it's a very common thing to do when two people are dating.

Drew and I have never been to the movie theater together.

But that changed tonight when Drew took me to see Dear John for my birthday.
I love Nicholas Sparks books and when I saw previews for this movie, I immediately knew that I wanted to go see it. Bonus for me was that the movie came out right before my birthday. I knew that I could mention to Drew that I wanted to go to the movie and the book for my birthday and have a pretty good chance of getting it. And it worked! I'm so easy to please, aren't I?

How was the movie you ask? Shirtless Channing Tatum was fantastic. The movie was just ok. I find it hard to justify spending the amount of money that it costs to go see a movie, especially when some movies turn out to be horrible. I guess I just expected more out of this movie. It was still good, just not worth spending the money to see it in the theaters. But, Drew did comment later that he also agreed that Channing is hot. That made my day!!
After the movie, we went and played cards at Adam and Nicole's with them and Josh and Amanda. I love spending time with our friends.
