Tuesday Talk…

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessica or any of the other hosts.  :)

I know that it's been a while since I've posted, life has gotten pretty insane & then I'll be absent for another couple of weeks as I'll be on vacation.  Hopefully when I return, I can be a blogging/reading machine again.

Anywho, today I am gonna talk about movies.  Since I've been absent, I haven't been able to do my lil movie reviews & I've seen a couple of movies & some I've forgotten but I'll get back on track with Beauty & the Beast.

IMDB's summary:  "an adaptation of the Disney fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love."

My summary:  "French village girl falls in love with a beast who has lots & lots of books...I'm convinced that she's more in love with his library than him."  Ha!

I loved this movie!  It was wonderful.  I thought the casting was done very well especially Josh Gad as Lefou.  He is Lefou, no doubt about it!  Emma was a beautiful Belle, Dan Stevens is a wonderful Beast & Luke Evans was good as Gaston...not great but good.  I love Luke Evans but Gaston should have been bigger.  I'll take it though.

Another thing that I really liked about this movie is that they give you more of a backstory on Belle, Beast & Gaston.  I loved learning more about the characters & where they came from.  Like, did you know that Gaston was in the war & he has a thing for widows?!  I didn't either.  Ha, ha!

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
