step up 2 - the streets...



there's no baby yet, so melissa and i decided to do something crazy. we went and watched the awesome movie "step up 2 - the streets". it was so full of awesome/rad it was a little bit hard to go back to our lives.

***----Ok, this is Melissa stepping in... thanks Aaron for alerting me that you updated the blog, but we can't just have a one sided post for this one. Let me interject a few delights experienced regarding the movie. We were over by the airport (Aaron had an unexpected day off from school), I was distraught that we had just dropped off my mom and Lizzy to go back to Utah, and Aaron suggested we go see what was playing at the dollar movie theaters. Fortunately, we had an idea of what was playing, b/c Lizzy had looked them up online last week for something for us to do (but we never ended up going). So, I say, "Well, Em has seen Step Up 2 and liked it a lot, maybe that?" and Aaron's response is, "Step Up 2, The Streets?" Yes, Aaron even knew the subtitle to the movie. That was it. We had to go.

So, we go. Surprised that it is the exact replica of the Movies 8 theater in good ol' Orem. The movie... Entertaining? sure. Would we recommend it to all our friends and family as the bomb.com? probably not. But, we did feel like we needed to dance or do something dramatic with our hands & arms (wave them in street thug style) as we came out of the theater. But, we held off.

Anyway, after we got back into the car, I ask Aaron (something to the effect of this), "What would that be like to live life like that? Can you even imagine yourself going to dance clubs like that or living that life?" and Aaron's thoughtful response was this, "I couldn't even handle being that awesome. Seriously, I can't."

I died laughing. Aaron died laughing when we realized what he had just so blatantly admitted.

Then, we see a Port-O-Potty off the side of the road (major construction going on), and I saw that it had been "tagged" by some street thugs. (You know, we had just seen a movie all about territory and "the Streets" and "coolness", so it was on my mind). And I thought aloud, Who tags a Port-O-Potty? Who tags that of all places? Is it to claim/mark their territory? Like, our thugs are the only ones that can use this one?--- if so, Awesome. No, dOuBLe AwEsoMe.

That was our date out. I think the key word here was AWESOME. **----back to Aaron's post.

ok, update for everyone is melissa is still looking great as a pregnant *(thanks Aaron)*... but we both are so excited to have the baby here. we'll keep everyone posted.

Melissa's mom and sister came down last week and helped us get the house soooo ready for the baby. *(pictures to be added very soon of all the goodness we accomplished!) * We had a great time with them, but time ran out for Lizzy and she had to go back home *(you know, that whole school thing?)*. Melissa's mom will be on the first plane back as soon as she hears we are on our way to the hospital.

I love this post for 2 reasons. First, if mason EVER decides to contribute to our blog, I am sure I will have to go through it and completely edit it myself, or at least add my two bits. And second, any time we have seen something "ghetto" like, Mason breaks into his "ghetto" talk and says "Step Up Two: Takin' it to the Streets". HE knew the subtitle before I did. Gotta love these men!

You two....what a riot. So no baby huh? If you need anything let me know. I am sure yo mama was just as bummed as you were when she left. That is okay, because now you get two visits from her, and I am sure that will be the bomb.com.:) Hang in there, it is worth the suprise of it all.

let's be really truthful here and talk about how truly great "step-up 2" was! i know lizzy was very disappointed with the modesty of the main girl. i was looking through the dancing eyes and WOW! amazing! don't worry, katie zarbock and i danced in the aisles and in our seats...trying to persuade amy to join...it was fabulous-o!!

I had to go watch the trailer to see what this movie is all about. Now I see how totally awesome it is and might have to rent it. I hope that little baby wood appears soon.
