Hello Lovelies!

So that is how I narrowed it down a little bit. I hope you enjoy this concise and by no means exhaustive list. Pardon my moments of fangirling if you can.Read More »

July Favorites ~ 2016

 

Today, after dinner I had a hankering for chocolate something fierce! So I caved and had my brother pick me up a chocolate bar from the hardware store when he ran there for a dowel. Smile I enjoyed it immensely with a glass of raw milk. I then read the back of the package and was thanked for eating my chocolate bar because it helps support children’s education! Who knew you could make a difference by eating a bar of chocolate! I feel so much better about that splurge now! LOL!Read More »

Jungle Book Medley

The Jungle Book movie has a special place in my heart along with a chosen few other of the first Disney musicals. When I was little, we had very few VHS videos and the Jungle Book was one of them. I remember watching it over and over. I loved the fun songs, and to this day, even with not having seen the movie in quite a few years, I can still sing most of the songs from memory. As an adult, watching it again, I still giggled over some of the silly parts that I remember laughing at as a little girl.

That being said, I was so excited that they were making a live action version and it being one of my favorites, I can’t wait to see it. I loved the songs from it so much that I decided to do a medley. My sweet sister helped me record it and she did all the editing. Thanks sis! I hope you enjoy it. I had a blast making it and singing all my favorite tunes from the film.

Star Wars Vll Movie-Going Outfit/My Thoughts (NO Spoilers)

DSC00540

My Brothers and I went to see the new Star Wars movie a few weeks ago. Now, I don’t necessarily think I would wear a costume to something like that. (unless it was a princess movie such as Cinderella, just sayin’) but I tried to coordinate and had Princess Leia in mind with my outfit and of course hair! I just loved Leia’s hair throughout the films, except those crockpots on the sides of her head in the lV episode. ugh. And, did you know, Carrie Fischer’s Hair was actually SUPER LONG!? She had a ton of hair. So, I went with the style from when they were on the planet Hoth in the beginning of the V episode. (I may sound like I know what I am talking about, but I had to ask my brothers what the name of the planet was like 10 times. Smile)

Here is how Leia influenced my outfit!

I went with a white dress because she almost always seems to be wearing white. And she wore a white dress in the first episode.

I wore the military jacket because she wore something similar in episode 6 and because I thought it kind of fit with the theme. And then the boots too of course. And I love the way my hair turned out!

As to the movie. I watched episodes 4 through 6 the month prior and thought they were ok. It just didn’t excite me too much ya know? I mean, someone once called them “bizarre-wars” so yah. The story parts were great, but some of the weird alien and creature things were just that. Weird. Sorry to all those super fanatical fans out there. I did like it, just not LOVED it. I did really like Han Solo though! (**and slight disclaimer, we skipped most of he 6th episode, too much immodesty) I was kind of excited to see this movie because it had a girl main character. I am not saying that because I am so feminist “yah! Finally an awesome girl hero! Go girl!” I am more excited to see a story portrayed from the standpoint of a girl with a girls emotions. I must say I really liked it. It was probably the most un-bizarre of the 4 I have seen. (Thanks JJ Abrams!) Rey was a very lovable and nice character. Fin was funny! I liked him a lot too. And of course Han Solo and Leia were awesome as well! And Po, the coolest pilot, (aside from Han of course) was fun to watch. I won’t say anything more except that at one point in the movie, I was so mad I almost threw my napkin 3 rows of seats in front of me. The thought of helpless movie-goers stayed my emotions however. Your welcome unknown people! I didn’t cry, (which is something I do for any slightly emotional movie) so it didn’t quite get me that hard. I wasn’t sad, just mad. And it made me even madder when my brothers said they all saw it coming. I was like “what? I didn’t see it coming at all! Guys!!!!” I was so shocked! So, yah, it was good and I liked it! And I want to see it again, so that is saying something!
