holding it up

Sarah and Dale kept their nieces for a funcation last weekend, so I invited myself to go see "Brave" with them.  I don't know if I'm allowed to tell this story on my blog or not, but I'm going to because it is hilarious.  Sarah informed  the girls that they were going to see Brave in 2D at 12:30.  The oldest, "Schmoey" told Sarah that she can only watch movies in 3D.  Sarah told her that her, Dale and "Schmilly" would go to the movie and she could stay at home with a babysitter, because the 2D tickets were already purchased.  Schmoey acquiesced and joined us for the 2D screening.  She survived.  (Quick movie review:  liked it!  I think Pixar is amazing - how do they make things look so real?  I loved the red headed kiddos and my favorite part was when the queen got all "momma bear" on the bad bear.  It even brought a little tear to my eye.  Very cute movie, might be a little scary at parts for the really little ones.)

Anyway. 

We saw the movie at Alamo Drafthouse, which is known for it's clever pre-movie entertainment.  There are no dancing hotdogs or animated rollercoaster rides - they show old cartoons, old movie clips, music videos, etc.  One of the clips was an advertisement for an upcoming movie event featuring the old film "An American in Paris."  I have not ever seen this movie, but it I will be watching it soon, because one of the lines captured me:

The guy says to the woman:  That's... quite a dress you almost have on. 
The woman says:  Thanks.
The guy says:  What holds it up?
The woman says:  Modesty.

Does it get any better than that?  I love it!  It makes me want to purchase this dress:


and reenact the scene.  (Well, I don't really know what the scene entails since I haven't seen the movie yet, but I could at least reenact the line.)  I'm pretty sure that if I had this dress, I would curl my hair every day and wear pearls and heels.  And bake pies.

While we're talking about it, I would also consider wearing this dress and reenacting another of my favorite movie lines:
 "No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how."  Oh, Rhett.  They just don't make 'em like you anymore.  (Yes, I know this isn't exactly a Scarlett O'Hara dress.  But it has a full skirt and has kind of a curtain-y pattern on the fabric, so it could work.)

Haha! She told me 2D movies were boring. She did not look so bored when she was watching the movie. Especially the scary bear part. Lily later told me that she sat in Dale's lap because she was tired, not because she was scared. It was just a coincidence that she happened to get tired every time the scary bear was on the screen.

How cute was it when they asked you to go back to the house with us?

Love the dresses!
