Week in Review

Lots of happy Spring fun this week! Jumping, planting, crafting, thrifting!!

And it seems my weekends involve at least one movie. So, here's another movie recommendation:The tag line for the movie is: "Make believe. Not war." Son of Rambow is set in England, early 80's & it's about 2 boys from different backgrounds who set out to make a movie inspired by First Blood (the first of 5 'Rambo' movies by Sylvester Stallone). After watching the movie, Mr. WhiMSy love's comment was: "I wouldn't have EVER rented this. But I liked it."

I also saw Twilight this weekend, for the first time. I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not, but I LOVED it! I've never read the books, but am really excited to go out & get the first book. (Said the non-reader.) Let me just state the obvious: Edward Cullen = HOTNESS. I have about half the music tracks added to my blog playlist, even some of the score. I'm like a giddy, geeky, obsessed 7th grader. (No offense to giddy, geek 7th graders. I speak from experience.)

  1. I just love these mosaics, they are really fun! I must learn how to do this!

  2. Oh Twilight is such a nice movie!It's so intense..and edward!Hot boy+being a vampire=perfection
    I also have some The score soundtracks,the how would i die song in one of my fav.
    Nice blog,nice ideas.

  3. I've read the first two books (working on #3) which I love and so I'm almost afraid to watch the movie cause I don't want to be disappointed.

  4. I shipped your surprise off in the mail today... We took a little walk across town to the USPO. I do hope you like it, but that's okay if you don't!

    BTW... Inviting you to join my photo challenge next week on my blog blog:

  5. I left you a little award over on my blog! :0)

  6. Oh man I am so not trying to get swept up into the Twilight craze. I did the Harry Potter, and so many people I know dislike Twilight. But I saw the movie and I will only admit it here, it was kind of interesting. Tell anyone and I swear I will deny it. ;-) Listening to the songs on your player has me wanting to watch it again. Enabler!!! LOL!

  7. I had no intentions of reading the Twilight books but then it happened. The pretty book called to me at the library and I read the first chapter standing at the shelf. I got sucked right in and ended up reading all 4 books (one of which I had to buy because the library wouldn't have it for weeks!) within a week. I have to say it is a wonderful story!

  8. The Twilight books are better than the movie for sure. I'm not Twilight crazed but I did read the books rather quickly. They are easy reads. Have fun!

  9. If you liked the movie - READ the books, it explains so much and you will love Edward oh so very much more. I read all the books after some persuading from a few friends and thanked them profusely after I finished. (My husband however did not - he was ignored for a week while I became obsessed with them.) Enjoy!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Every time you do, I do a little happy dance. For reals.
