Date Night

QUICK QUIZ

Scott and I have the hardest time making decisions about important life things like where to eat and what movie to see.

My parents are coming Friday night to spend the night and keep Harper while we have a DATE! ;-) We are going to go crazy and try to do dinner AND a movie!!!

But the hard part is picking where to eat and what movie.

So.........if you have seen a good movie lately that you
recommend - leave us a comment and whatever gets the most comments - we will go with. (I really want to see "The Proposal". ) We try not to go to R rated movies so keep that in mind. Remember we haven't seen a movie in 7 months! And it could be 7 more before we see another one.

And if you are local and have a favorite restaurant - tell us that too - maybe we'll use your pick.

THANKS!

P.S. I don't know what this font is so big - but I can't get it to go smaller.

In regards to The Proposal nudity scene:

"The pair is completely nude, and the camera captures all but the most sensitive regions of their bodies. In essence, the filmmakers show us everything, while not showing quite everything. "

That report also says God's name is misused 20+ times.

Greetings from Guatemala said...

We had dinner and a movie night on Tuesday and went to see The Proposal. It was really cute! We both enjoyed it!

Jenny said...

The Proposal was GREAT...DON'T go see The Ugly Truth - AWFUL!

Have fun!

Chaeli said...

I vote Julie and Julia- it's about a BLOGGER and COOKING! Can't go wrong, right??! :) Have a wonderful time together!!

New said...

My wife and I saw Transformers 2 and liked it. Last time I was in your neck of the woods. I ate at O'Charlies and really liked it.

The Proposal is darling - really cute and funny - for both women and men, we had a guy in our group and he thought it was funny! i cant wait to watch it again when it comes out on rental!

Anonymous said...

On my husband and I's last date we went to see the proposal...It was great and we both liked it which isnt common with 'chic flicks' lol. Enjoy your evening out... I understand as well as anyone... we usually get only 1-2 date nights a year!!

Chele said...

We just went and saw "The Proposal" for our anniversary and we absolutely loved it! My hubby really liked it and I of course loved it. Cute movie! Have Fun!

Trish said...

I thought The Proposal was adorable. It would be a good choice for a date night. Have a great time with your hubby.

Kristina said...

I SO want to see "Julie & Julia" and it seems right up your alley. As for Scott...I dont know!!

Lin said...

I highly recommend going to see The Proposal! My husband & I went to see it on one of our 'date nights' & we both thought it was great.

You'll both love it!

Kelli said...

I enjoyed The Proposal, and I am excited about seeing Julie & Julia this weekend. They are both kindof chick flicks, but that's what dates are for!

Brenna said...

PROPOSAL!! Happy date night!!

Dreams2009 said...

Loved the proposal and my husband liked it too, so it's not just a chick flick. Proposal gets my vote too!

Josh and Maggie Seymour said...

Movie: The Proposal, Night at the Museum 2 (soo funny), or Julia&Julia.

Restaurant: P.F. Changs at the Promenade!

Mary said...

it looks like the proposal wins! lol idk what types of movies you like..and i think this one is R rated but it is called "Orphan" its a horror movie..and a lot of people don't like those, but i just wanted to say its a very good movie....as far as dinner i would have to say CHILI'S!!! lol..thats where we went on our date night last weekend (and then to see orphan...hope yall have a great time!!
-Mary

We have a 2 1/2 year old and we RARELY go out to a movie. I actually took my mom to The Proposal for her birthday and it was a really cute movie. I would recommend it after seeing it. The Time Traveler's Wife looks good to me also but I have a feeling that we probably won't be seeing that in the theater. Have fun!

Teri said...

100% you need to see The Proposal. My husband and I have seen The Proposal and The Ugle Truth - THE PROPOSAL is MUCH better!!! My Vote is The Proposal!

Cari said...

I LOVED The Proposal!! My husband said that he has never heard me laugh so much and so loudly in a movie theater as that movie!! My husband was NOT excited about going to see it and after watching it he agreed that it was REALLY good! I can't wait to see it again.

Have fun on your date night!!

Cari

The Borgfeld's said...

The Proposal is really cute, my hubby even liked it! I want to see that Julie and Julia movie that comes out this weekend too! Have fun on your night out!!! We are going to see George Strait this weekend! Woo, hoo!

Stephanie Day said...

The Proposal is SO SO SO good! I highly recommend it! I hope y'all enjoy your date night!

Harper is so adorable!

Kris said...

The Proposal is one of the funniest movies I've seen in awhile. I laughed like so hard from the very beginning. The man even liked it! As far as eateries go...I would say Noodles!

the Spocks said...

Have not seen The Proposal waiting for The Time Traveler's Wife. Last movie I was Dark Knight.

Great place to eat in NW AR is The Market Place. Used to come up for Razorback games. Great place for breakfast is Susan's in Springdale.

MandyJo013078 said...

I loved The Proposal and even if you don't usually go see R rated movies... The Ugly Truth is so hilarious! Not sure what kind of movies Scott likes but Harry Potter is good as well as Transformers 2, but if you are looking for a romantic comedy I'd stick with The Proposal or The Ugly Truth. Have a great time Kelly! I love reading your blog!

Jara said...

You will LOVE the proposal and will laugh your butts off! It's great! Have fun, enjoy eachother!

Chris & Amanda said...

The Proposal - my husband laughed harder than I did. Its a great show!

Whitney said...

We loved "UP!" if it is still in the theater. And for dinner, do you have a Melting Pot nearby? Very romantic and yummy.

jeck said...

The Proposal!!! Hands down the funniest movie I have seen in a long time!!! I wouldn't mind seeing it again!!

Have fun!

Lil' Woman said...

I'd def. put my vote in for "The Proposal"
I thought it was funny and even my boyfriend enjoyed it and said he would actually buy it.

Tamara said...

Totally LOVED The Proposal! Saw it twice! I say go see it!!

Ann said...

WOW! THanks for posting this today! Thursday is my offical datenate every week and this week we are going to the movies!! Weird coincidence, hugh? Anyway, I was soo excited to read the suggestions so we are going to see...
drumroll...
The proposal after reading your blog.
Thanks again!!! I follow and read your blog daily!!!Also am one of the ones that did not know what Rotel was...LOL

Rexanna's Foundation said...

the proposal is awesome!!! good for both husband and wife!

Shana said...

the proposal was a fun flick! and it makes the movie even better if your theatre makes kettle corn! mmmm. delicious.

The Kahler Family said...

The Proposal was so cute and funny, I definitely recommend that one!
UP is also a great movie, it has a great message!
Have fun on your date night!

I have followed your blog since Harper was born, but don't believe I've ever commented. I've seen The Proposal twice and loved it. Definitely a fun movie!!

Mrs. McB said...

My husband and I recently saw The Proposal and both loved it. From what is out, I would recommend that. :)Enjoy!

Jennifer said...

My husband and I went on a date night with our good friends to see The Proposal. The guys were skeptical at first, but loved it as much as us girls did. It is sooo good and also super sweet and cute! Go for it!

Melinda said...

It's funny because I just posted something and deleted it after I read a comment from a Ginny. Her comment said ""The pair is completely nude, and the camera captures all but the most sensitive regions of their bodies. In essence, the filmmakers show us everything, while not showing quite everything. "

That report also says God's name is misused 20+ times."

I originally said "My vote is the Proposal, it is so cute". I did enjoy this movie with girlfriends. My husband and I are VERY cautious of what we watch as we do not want any hint of impurity to come in our marriage. It is funny how the world so easily sucks us in and what once was deemed as unacceptable is now wonderful...I did enjoy the movie. The partial nudity scene did not have to be and when I saw how many times they used our Lord and Saviors name in vain...wow. Anyways...have a great date night! I love following your blog!! :-)

Steven Sarah said...

My husband and I just saw The Proposal for our anniversary (our first date in 9 months)! We both loved, loved, loved it!! I highly recommend it (i've actually seen it twice, it was so good)! Enjoy your date!

Kristen said...

Like many others said, The Proposal is soooo good! And absolutely hilarious! We went to go see if for our anniversary and my hubby laughed the entire way through. We also didn't think it was as predictable as alot of romantic comedies. As for dinner, Crabby's is yummy, and it has a nice intimate atmosphere. Have a great evening!!

Jill said...

I am not a big help with movies, but the eating part is right up my alley! I think you should go to Crabby's in Rogers - it is one of favs! If it's not too hot outside sit on the patio!
Enjoy your night with the hubby!

Ashlee Liddell said...

Saw the Proposal and it was hilarious!!!! Great for guys and gals....

TwinsanityMom said...

I vote for Julie & Julia. I have heard great things about this movie from people who got to see the sneak peek. :)

I'm also glad to see that the hubby and I aren't the only ones who don't get to do date nights that often...last weekend was the first one in almost 3 years!

Michelle said...

We are going on a date night Friday night and hoping to see Julie & Julia - I just read the book and it was really good.

Enjoy your night out !!oppa

Alyssa said...

I HIGHLY reccomend My Sister's Keeper. It's a tearjerker but my dad and I both loved it and that's a big accomplishment.

BRiehl said...

My parents (who don't think twice about leaving a theater if the movie is offensive) said The Proposal is really good. Also, for our anniversary (and first movie out in years!) my husband and I went to see UP. Sure it's a kids' movie, but it was wonderful! Funny and even romantic. Very sweet. Good luck choosing and have a blast!

Kristen said...

No R rated movies here either! The Proposal was cute - a bit risque in a few parts but we liked it! Have fun on your date night!

sscarbrough said...

Our favorite date night restaurant, by far, is Theo's. It reminds of being back in a bigger city. It's pricey, but the food is delish (and beautiful). If you're looking for something closer to the movies, I would go with Mr. B's in Rogers. They have wonderful steaks...definitely just as good (or better) than Doe's in Bentonville.

tahnie said...

definitely go see 'up' or '500 days of summer' which i saw at sundance earlier this year, both are great! have fun!

chesley said...

The Proposal is a very cute movie..go for it! Do not see The Ugly Truth! I'd only seen a few previews before the movie, but was absolutely shocked at the language in it!

The Pelhams said...

I want to see the Proposal too some friends from church have already seen it and said it was hilarious!! Gotta love Olive Garden or Texas Roadhouse 2 of our favorites!

Michelle, Queen of Everything said...

Sorry, girl, but I have no movie recommendations. Maybe because I have two kids and never get to go to the movies? lol

I just thought your font was big because you were so EXCITED about your big date. Have fun!

Carolyn said...

I thought the Proposal was cute, but the nude scene stuck out like a sore thumb and was completely unnecessary. Good chemistry between Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds.

Star Trek was really good - and that's coming from a romantic comedy chick at heart who can't handle violent movies. Good characters and story line. You don't have to have any history with Star Trek in order to like it. Plus, if your husband is like mine, there's only so many chick flicks he can handle!

Have fun on your date!!

becky said...

I am from Fayetteville and now live in LR. But, my favorite place to eat is Pesto Cafe. SOOO good!!!! I would highly recommend it!

Misti said...

I have seen The Proposal twice and loved it both times! My husband and I just moved to the area not too long ago and we like Pesto Cafe or MarketPlace. Have fun on your date!

MeganSloan said...

We're going on our first date night this weekend and are having the same problem! We aren't sure even what movies are out there, let alone what looks good to us! And as for restaurants, the last time I was in Fayetteville (I thought that's where you live), we ate at this great Asian restaurant where they come to your table to cook. Can't remember the name but it was a chain and I think it was the only one like it. I don't eat sea food and I'll admit they had the best shrimp around! Everything was great. Have fun!!

Michelle said...

My vote would be for sure the proposal- awesome movie that even a guy would like. For dinner you should definitely go to bonefish! Soo yummy and nice. Plus they are running specials right now! Have so much fun!

khull05 said...

"The Proposal" is hilarious! Way exceeded my expectations and is not too "chick flicky". It definitely gets my vote. Of course, it's the only movie I've seen in approximately 3 years! =)

Janee said...

Both my hubs and I loved the Proposal!

Bethany said...

Looks like The Proposal is going to win! Just wanted to say that I hope you have a fantastic time on your date! I agree with the one comment at the beginning that the movie "Up" is also really cute!! But you could always rent that with Harper when she's a few years old and enjoy it as a family :) Have fun!

Leah said...

The Proposal is PG-13 and is very cute. Betty White is in and steals the show. She's a doll. There is a little nakey scene, so beware of that. I recently saw The Ugly Truth and the raunchy language made it very deserving of its R rating.
Yall have fun!!

Trace Car Driver said...

DEFINITELY THE PROPOSAL!!!! my hubby and i saw it a few weeks ago on vacation without the boys and it was SO GOOD! FUNNY, CUTE, JUST A GREAT MOVIE!!!
hope ya'll enjoy your date nite!

soho said...

You have to see "The Proposal", it's a really cute movie and sooo funny. I saw it once with my husband and then went again to watch it with my mom, I think that is the first movie I've watched in the theatre twice.

Holly Aytes said...

The Proposal is great! My hubby and I went and saw it for our anniversary. Not sure about your restaurants there but we love going to the japanese steakhouse and Chili's or a good mexican place, we love mexican food :) Hope y'all have fun!

MacKenzie said...

It's a little old but if you haven't seen it, I would recommend UP. I know it's a kid's movie but my husband and I went to see it together and it was really sweet (I cried 4-5 times, but it was still good). Afterwards we talked about our life and what we wanted our life to look like when we get older, how we want to have spent our years and view our trials and hardships.

Rita said...

I'm way down on the list so you probably won't see this. But, have you eaten at Crabby's yet? The original is in Joplin, where I grew up and really good. Also LOVE PF Chang's. But did you see that Hugo's in Fayetteville was voted best burger in Southern Living this month?

Krista said...

I'd say go to The Proposal! I've heard people like it, and heck, if my husband wants to see it... then I'd say any guy would enjoy it! =)
I hope you guys have SO MUCH FUN! =) Can't wait to hear where you eat & what you see!
~Krista

Ellis Kathryn and Charlie's Mommy said...

I haven't seen any movies lately, but you should definitely go to Theo's and eat on the patio! It's wonderful! Enjoy your night out!

Holly said...

I only read the first few comments so far, so I'm sure there are many more votes for "The Proposal". Make that one more ~ it's great! Have fun!!

The Gallup Family said...

The proposal is a great movie. It was a movie I didn't want to end. I highly recomend going to see it.

Braden & Tami said...

I don't normally post but wanted to suggest seeing "The Proposal"! My husband and I seen it a few weeks ago and it was awesome. It looks like a lot of people agree.

Claudia said...

I would definitely recommend "The Proposal". I thought it was a very cute movie. It may be a bit of a chick flick but I think your husband will still enjoy it. Hope you guys have a wonderful date night!

Allikaye's Mama said...

I know I am like comment 1 million - but I loved the Proposal!! Have fun!

Cochran Family said...

I will give you my two cents (for whatever it's worth)! First, I see people recommending both G-Force and The Ugly Truth and I have no idea why they would recommend either of them! I went with my husband and two kiddos to see G-Force and it was PAINFUL to sit through that movie. It had no real story and was just plain cheesy and BAD! Even the kids didn't like it, and that's saying a lot :) Second, I went on a girls' night to see The Ugly Truth and was honestly a little embarrassed to be in the theater. It is extremely vulgar. To me, they were pushing the limit on the R-rating. And that's all I have to say on those! :) Happy date night!

Susan P said...

I LOVED the Proposal...I laughed and smiled the entire way through the movie. It is a MUST see!!!!

Rach said...

The Proposal! It really was funny. I have 3 kids 5 and under with another one due in a month...SO needless to say I hardly ever get out and that was the last movie I saw. It was great fun and just what I needed on a night out. Have fun!!

The Tranthams said...

You and your husband will enjoy The Proposal. We went to see it on our anniversary in July and my husband loved it just as much as I did (he usually tolerates the chick flicks!)

angie said...

Hi Kelly,
I love your blog! I have never posted a comment because I am a terrible lurker, but when I saw this post I had to tell you that "The Proposal is one of the BEST movies I have seen in a very long time! I have actually seen it twice and would have gone a third time with my girlfriends, but I had a time conflict on the night they were going. My husband actually liked it too and he is not a big romantic comedy guy (as most men aren't)! Hope you have fun on your date! I cherish those. We don't get them very often since we have two children ourselves! I actually found out about your blog from Amy Compton. We go to church with her and Doug. Amy and I grew up in the same town, so we have known each other for quite a while. And Doug....well, he is just a hoot and a great Godly man! Glad she told me about you.

WallysMama said...

My vote goes to Julie and Julia!! Love your blog :)

Abby said...

You have GOT to go see Julie and Julia! I got to go see a prescreening of the movie and it was great! It was clean and both women had wonderful husbands and marriages and it was based on two true life stories. It was funny and at the end of the movie everyone in the theater clapped because it was just that good! I even wrote a post about it. http://abbysugarandspice.blogspot.com/2009/07/julie-and-julia.html

ShirleyC said...

"The Proposal"! I am 60 years old and that is absolutely the funniest movie I've seen in a long time.

Ashley said...

The proposal, it's so funny and very appropriate!! ;)

Lauren said...

"The Proposal" was hysterical, I laughed 70% of the movie, the only thing I was concerned with was a semi- nude scene. It doesn't actually show anything and it's not a bedroom scene. It's supposed to be funny, but they're naked. Just a warning! Let us know what you see, hope this helped!

P.S Harper looks SOOO cute in the play group outfit!!

oliviasmommy07 said...

The Proposal was great. I went with girlfriends but think my husband would have enjoyed it too!!

Amy said...

I saw "The Proposal" recently with a girlfriend and it was SO GOOD! I think my husband would have loved it too, I think it would make a great "date night" movie. :)

Julee said...

The Proposal is really a cute movie. Matt and I went a few weeks ago and he thought it was good too. And I would go to Bone Fish to eat and get the Bang Bang shrimp! YUMMY!! Its a good thing that I don't live in Roger bc we would be broke from eating at Bone Fish and Abuelos! I can't get enough of either of those!

Kelly said...

"The Proposal!!"

Andrea said...

The Proposal is a great movie! It is laugh out loud funny!

Sara said...

Loved the proposal and so did my hubby! definately recommend it!!! hope you have a great night out!

a child of God said...

Julia & Julie comes out tomorrow! It looks AMAZING!!!

mrosev14 said...

Loved the proposal!! Definitely go see it, also enjoy your date with your hubby. Try to do them more often, they are so important to not only you two but to Harper as well.

Staci said...

Go see Proposal! So cute!

Ava said...

Eat at Hugo's....cheddar, swiss, tomato, and sprout sandwich with avacado....to die for!

rae said...

The Proposal is the best!! It definitely gets my vote!!

Darcy said...

The Proposal is so funny. I highly recommend it. I went to see it with my pastors wife and daughter last weekend. We all laughed throughout the whole thing.

Anonymous said...

We saw the Proposal....it was good(Sandra Bullock gets completely naked in it....covers her "parts" up with her hands but still...)

My Sister's Keeper is better. Def. not a romantic movie- but it is such a feel good movie. You leave feeling grateful and blessed. Ready to really start living life.

Ralph and Marilyn said...

I saw a screening of Julie and Julia and have one word for you--GO! It adorable! You will want to come home and cook something after you hug your husband. It is so sweet. Yes, it is more for ladies, but the guys there liked it too!

Jordan said...

The Proposal! I've seen it twice. It's such a cute & hilarious movie! = )

Michelle Cearley said...

Proposal was HILARIOUS! I think a guy would even like it. The man in front of me laughed out loud the whole time! Pretty clean and super great chemistry with the entire group of actors. I didn't want it to end!!

Alaska Girl said...

I haven't seen it yet, but I've only heard good things about The Proposal - although it portrays Alaska in a funny way for those that live or have visited here. My second choice would be Julie and Julia - can't wait to see it!

Have fun! L

Tiffany said...

Well, this is the first time I have ever commented, but I love your blog!! Harper is ADORABLE!! Your outfits are cute, and I love the tours, even though I never had a chance to join!!!

I wanted to let you know the THE PROPOSAL is a Great Movie!!! My husband and I went and saw it on our date night a few weeks ago and we both really enjoyed it. My husband was going around telling EVERYONE about it for the next week! Enjoy your get away!!

Reen said...

I saw "The Proposal" and it was great. (Betty White is the best part of the movie for me) However, I'd have to put in my vote for Julie & Julia too!

Courtney Molony said...

The Proposal is absolutely hysterical! You will potentially laugh so hard your stomach will hurt! Not a single "R" rated scene in the whole thing! I would go back to the theatre again and pay to see it twice!

Raina's Retreat said...

I loved the Proposal! The best movie I have seen in a long long time!!!

Pieper Rodriguez said...

I haven't seen Proposal yet, but kinda want to... but I'm with you on the rated R thing. Although these days, PG 13 is just as bad in many cases. Anyhoo, is Julie & Julia out yet? It looks rather funny.. I can't wait to see it!

Brandy Webb said...

You have to try the new seafood restaurant near Myrons called MacAdoo's.

It is the perfect place for a date and the food is awesome! Just my $.02 :)

Lisa said...

Hey, Miss Kelly! We're local, live just north of you. On the rare occasion we get out for a date night, we LOVE Crabby's. Ask for Jose, he's the best waiter. They have INCREDIBLE food, fresh flown-in seafood and he knows what to recommend. Trust him! They have a great happy hour with half price appetizers til 6. The calamari is incredible!!!! I know there are a lot of good places around, but if we're going to go out, this is our favorite. It's a little pricey, so we sometimes do the half price apps and share a dinner.

Kim said...

I LOVED The Proposal!

noahandlylasmommi said...

I think Julie and Julia looks wonderful!
