On Saturday night I went out with my sis-in-laws and my mom for a Balmanno Babes Night Out OR BBNO as we are now calling it. Rachel came too, and although she is not a sis-in-law she is as close to family as it comes without marriage or blood. We went out to eat at Ruby Tuesdays and then finally took mom to see Mama Mia. It was my 11Th time. I think it was also sadly, my last. Everyone I know has gone to see it with me at least once or twice (or three times! Sorry Rachel and Marlo!) and now I am on my own. Every time I go, I sing, and I dance and have a great time. I just do not think that I can do it solo. So sadly :( I may never see it in the theater again. (That is unless Sharon wants to go. She is the one person that I wanted to see it with and we have not seen it yet together! I know. It is almost inconceivable.) So maybe Sharon will join me at some point?
So at the movie last night the crowd was a BUST!!! There were maybe 50 people there and they were all silent for the whole movie! This is why I like to go to the late movie, but mom wanted to go to the 6:55pm showing, and it was her choice so we went to the earlier one. At one point the guy sitting to our right asked one of my sil's to tell us to be quiet! Please!! My answer to that was "If they haven't seen Mama Mia by now then they do not deserve to see it quietly", and then ignored the dagger eyes he gave us for the first half of the movie. Really, I am sorry we busted up your make out session with the woman that you had with you. Oh, yeah they were in their 40's and trying to have a hook up in the back row of the theater. Gross. Get a room next time. Please just get a room. But the rest of the crowd was silent. Really! No laughing at appropriate places or anything. I might have to see it again just to make up for this showing.
Anyway, as usual after the show we went down front and sang and danced the duck dance. The duck dance you ask? Well if you haven't seen it then you are missing out. And I don't do it for just anyone either. It has to be a certain song, and I have to be in the right mood. Having a big group always helps with the fun.
After the movie I needed a little Coldstone. Yummy!

As always we had a good time. We were going to go to Witch's Night Out but mom still has a cold and was not up for dancing in the rain again this year (although it was a warm night and no rain, so we should have gone). Next year we are going for sure!

Wow after looking at that picture maybe I shouldn't have had the icecream! It's too bad that Jessie wouldn't get in the picture. It was great, what's next for the BBNO?

Mama Cher, Ok, fine, it's Sharon said...

Um, YES I want to see it!! And I could have even gone with you guys! Wah.
