Friday 5!

  1. Besides plain, what’s your favorite way to eat an apple? With caramel or peanut butter.
  2. Besides plain, what’s your favorite way to eat berries? In yogurt.
  3. Besides plain, what’s your favorite way to eat a banana? Peanut butter and banana sandwich! Or dipped in chocolate.
  4. Besides plain, what’s your favorite way to eat a peach? Peach cobbler or pie. I’d really like to try them grilled.

Monday Movies

July 19, 2010

In order to hopefully get back to my blog on a regular basis, I’ve been visiting The Daily Meme once every few days to see if one of the memes catches my eye. Today, the Monday Movie Meme (which you can find here), piqued my interest with what movies you could watch over and over–you know, the ones you go straight for when you’re deathly bored. Here are a few of my favorites:

Beauty and the Beast

This is the first movie I ever saw in the theater. My mom treated me to Beauty and the Beast when I was in 2nd grade. I can pretty much sing along with all of the songs and can recite quite a few lines, too.

Silence of the Lambs

Creepy!! I don’t know what it is that I like about this movie other than it is a fantastic psycho-thriller. It has me on the edge of my seat EVERY stinking time I watch it (but I can’t watch it alone…)!

The Blind Side

This is a newbie to my list of favorites. In fact, I’ve only seen it once–but I imagine that I’ll be buying it soon and that it will become a favorite to watch when I need a good cry. I didn’t need a good cry the first time I watched it but ended up sobbing through quite a bit of it (okay, maybe not sobbing, but if my husband hadn’t been there, you betcha I would have been!).

Just another Manic Monday…

July 12, 2010

Hoo-wee! Lots of changes have been going on around here–let’s see, we:

  • have a kid who will turn 7 months old tomorrow.
  • moved to North Carolina last week.
  • have 2 bathrooms! This is huge people, huge!
  • live in an area where it actually rains instead of splitting over the mountains, skipping us, and then coming back together over the other mountains.
  • live in a city where it’s going to be tough to find my way around for a while 😦
  • have an unusable fireplace. LOL!
