Mum's the Word

You know that expression originated with Shakespeare? I guess that's not actually even remotely surprising. It's supposed to refer to the sound that comes out when you try to speak with closed lips (mmmmmm). I hate to admit it, but I kind of love etymology.

So why mum's the word? Cause I saw Sex and the City 2 last night. Oh my goodness gracious alive, it was good! I won't say anything revealing . . . just that not even the nightgowns disappoint. Be ready for some serious glamour. Especially the gold glitter Louboutins in the opening scene (my heart dropped a little when I saw them). Without spoiling anything, here are some things you can look forward to:

*some magnificent gowns, shoes, accessories, and nightgowns (seriously, the nightgowns: whoa!)
*a few amazing and hilarious cameos
*some hottttttness
*SJP's stunning, wavy, slightly darker hair
*2.5 hours of Carrie & co!

Here's the camp ground outside the theater for those of us with advance screening tickets (even with ticket in hand, I got there an hour and a half early):

I went with five girlfriends and we had such a great time . . . anticipating it, quivering with excitement at the opening credits, gasping in awe throughout the movie, and squealing happily afterwards. Get ready, girls! You're in for some fun.


XOXO!

Y'all are so cute. :) I didn't wear the Jimmy Choos to the movie, mostly because I went straight from teaching high school! I'll find a fantastic occasion to sport them at soon enough, though.

Haha, there were people camping out for the movie? Man, SATC has really created a major cult following! I have yet to see this movie, but I am determined to drag the hubby to it. He went with me to the first one and liked it!
