Movie Review

It's a rainy, rainy weekend, so yesterday I rented some movies for our Friday night. I particularly liked this movie, so I thought I would recommend it in case you haven't seen it.


Penelope is a movie produced by Reese Witherspoon, and she also has a small role in the movie. Christina Ricci is wonderful as the lead character, and James McAvoy is fantastic!! Peter Dinklage also has a great role. I love movies that are all about a girl/woman discovering herself and feeling good about herself, and this one tells a great story. I highly recommend it, especially if you have daughters! We all liked it . . . even my husband enjoyed it! Great family movie!

I wanted to add that Misty Lynn is giving away Blog Booty! Go check it out! Great goodies Misty!

I hope you all have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!!

Hey! I'm glad you liked the movie. I liked it too and my girls loved it. It really had a good moral to the story. I added it to my collection and now the girls watch it when they want. I love Misty's card, I will be checking out her candy... Thanks!

I heard on The Weather Channel that ya'll are getting lots rain and that I-90 was closed going in to O'Hare due to flooding. We are waiting for Ike to get here this evening with lots of rain and wind.

Sounds like a good film Carol. We went bowling yesterday for my "Summer" birthday. It's the first time Peej and the kids have ever played and a great many years since I last played. We had so much fun and the kids absolutely loved it.

Josh won the first game and Ellie won the second with two strikes and two spares. I managed to come last in both games because I kept getting gutter balls! We went to Pizza Hut afterward for tea. It was a great birthday.

Okay, so I'm just going to give you a link on the Autumn Roast Green Chile...it's a little spicy but no more so than red been chile. It's made from the Green Chile Pepper grown here in Hatch, NM. Once you eat it you won't ever want to stop.
Hugs,
Misty
