Funniest Thing I’ve Seen in Years

Go. See. Bridesmaids! :lol:

Ben and I decided to spend this cold and windy afternoon at the movies, which turned out to be one of the best decisions we’ve made in weeks. I was laughing hysterically throughout the entire thing – crying with laughter, even! I can’t remember the last time I saw anything this funny!

Some SNL people make movies that are funny, but they’re "stupid" funny, like Step Brothers (which I actually didn’t even think was stupid funny, just stupid.) This was funny funny though. Could not contain my laughter. Loved it!

After the movie we headed to Quinton’s for an early dinner.

Quinton’s is a bar & deli that’s original to Iowa City, home of the University of Iowa, but they opened another location here locally a couple months ago.

It’s funny because sitting down, we felt like we were in Iowa City.

The decor was similar, and the $3 beers for happy hour were definitely Iowa City-sized,

(aka bigger than my head!)

But the view out the window was definitely Des Moines. :)

Quinton’s has an AMAZING sandwich menu (Beef & Brie, anyone?!)

but their soup can’t be beat.

Creamy Potato Bacon Soup with a side of fries was an easy choice for me!

Thick and chunky soup, smothered in cheddar cheese and bacon.

The potatoes were kind of chewy – in a good way. I want to know how they do that!

I subbed my chips for a side of fries. Crispy but soft, and just the right amount. (I get a little cuckoo around fries, but really wanted to try them, so less it best for me!) :)

We had a Groupon coupon for Quinton’s – $15 for $7 – so we only paid $10 total for everything. Add $14 for a matinee movie showing, and you’ve got a pretty good day for only $24!

Well tonight Ben and I we are laying low. We tried to pick up Due Date from a Redbox, but the one we were at didn’t have it, and we were too lazy to go to another one…less than a mile away…to pick up a copy. Anything good on tv tonight? ;)

See you!
