We continued our movie streak with another visit to the theater, this time to watch True Grit, a remake of the 1969 western starring John Wayne. While there were surprisingly a lot of laughs in the movie, it is a good flick with a few gritty scenes.

We also finished off The Amazing Race season and watched some more Psych.

No major plans for tonight, apart from some dinner, drinks and watching fireworks on the balcony. We have a few more Netflix movies lying around and other goodies on the DVR, so we'll be spending a cozy night in the couch in front of a roaring fireplace and watching TV; it may not be the most exciting thing to do, but it'll be a fun and relaxing way to kick off the new year!
