The Bridesmaids Are Coming To My House!

The Bridesmaids are going to be at my house for a "Girls Night In Screening Party". That is right~9 of my favorite friends are going to be here as we watch one of the funniest movies ever!
Bridesmaids is the riotously funny and warmly outrageous comedy that has become the most talked about movie of the year.  Critically acclaimed by fans and media alike, the “certified fresh” film (Rotten received “two thumbs up! ®” from Ebert Presents.  Surpassing Sex and the City as the number one R-rated female comedy of all time, Bridesmaids starring “Saturday Night Live” standouts Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph, is produced by comedy mastermind Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, The 40-Year Old Virgin) and marks his most successful film ever. 
We will be watching a copy of this movie before it is released on  Sept 20th. Also we are going to be having refreshments,food and lots of Bridesmaids themed party supplies that are provided for us. I can't wait to share this with my friends.  We will be making some great dishes! Just look at what I am planning so far~
