30 years ago........

Thirty years two of my favorite movies premired at the theater. I never did get to see them at the theater, but I waited on pins and needles for them to come out on video (VHS, yes I just dated myself!). I was so excited and watched them over and over and over again. I still watch them! I can quotes lines from both movies and I just love all of the characters in both movies.

I guess everyone would like the two movies that I am talking about, right? Drum roll, please.........

The Breakfast Club:



My favorite quote:




My favorite scene


Footlose:




My Favorite quote:


Willard: You won't get any dancing here, it's illegal.
Ren: Jump back! 

One of the best movies quotes!!

My favorite scene:


 There ya go, Lovelies!! Two of my favorite movies from the 80s. I challenge you to watch and not catch yourself singing and dancing to some of the songs in these two movies.

Around here lately.......

Hi Lovelies!!!

Whoa....it's been a little while, huh? Things have been good, just very busy. Here's a breakdown of our week.

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day by spending time together, playing outside, and good food. I also finished one class and then started another class.

Then, we got down to business with cleaning the house for the Little's birthday party and buying last minute food and decorations for the rest of the week. We cleaned every nook and cranny in the house, cleaned the front and back yards, hosed down the driveway.

We ordered the birthday cake which came put great, it was better than I expected. 


As you can see we had a Doc McStuffins birthday party. The Little loved it and had so much fun.

We spent lots of time outside and just spending time with each other. Oh and we finally finished watching Iron Man 3. Uh, yeah, we are a bit behind in our moving watching.





I have been watching "How I Met Your Mother", and so far Season 2 Episode 9 is my favorite!




Although, it has been busy, we have had a lot of fun. I plan to get back into the groove of posting again this week. 

Have a great night!!!

Converstions with The Little

Hi Lovelies!

Here is a converation that Little and I had earlier today.


A: You're my best mom. I Love you!
Me: You're my best little girl. I love you too.
A: I'm a big girl not a little girl Mom!! (with hands on her hips)

A: Mom, you're short, but I love all of you anyway.
Me: I love you too (laughing).

Love these conversations that we have. She is a sweet little girl, who is fiercely independent and will tell you and she has such a zest for life. We love her so much!

Have a nice evening!

Happy Homemaker Monday

Hi Lovelies! 

Did anyone wake up late this morning? I forgot to set the clocks foward last night and I woke up this morning (530am, which was really 630am) and actually set the clock back one hour. Yeah! I was confused most of the morning because of that. 

Even though we loose an hour of sleep, the days are longer and that means we are just one step closer to summer!!! Yeah!!!! 

I wanted to link up with Sandy for Happy Homemaker Monday. So, sit back, relax, grab a cup of your favorite morning beverage and link up! Have fun!



 As I look out the window:

This weekend has been very warm, which means we have been enjoying some fun in the sun. This week it's supposed to nice so we will be spending some time outside again.


Right now I am: 

Sitting in the living room, writing this post, and watching reuns of "Friends". I think I need some new shows to watch.

Thinking and pondering:

The menu for my daughter's birthday party (she will be 4 in less than two weeks!).

On my bedside table:

The same books that I have been reading for a while, which are books by V.C. Andrews and a few by books by Nicholas Sparks, and a couple by John Saul.

On my TV tonight:

I'm watching "How I Met Your Mother" on Amazon Prime tonight.




Listening to:

The TV and my husband talk about his compute class.

The house relatively clean. The kitchen still needs to be shown some love.

Bible Verse, devotional:

She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.  She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.  She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.

Have a nice and wonderful Monday!

Sunday Social

Hi Lovelies!! I'm back!!! I'm linking up with Neely for Sunday Social. 




Here are this week's questions: 

I'm going to warn you right now.....my junior high and high schools were pretty boring!!

1. Biggest Middle school fashion mistake.

I would have say the stitrrup pants. They were popular at the time, but I will never wear them again. 

2. Who were your best friends in hs? Pics?

Brandy and LaDonna. Sadly no pics :(

3. What was a typical weekend like for you in hs?

Okay, let's see if I can remember........ when my parents would let me I would stay the night with one or both of the above girls and this was when I could be a kid. We would go see a movie, listen to music or just walk around town (small town living). 

4. Did you have any boyfriends/girlfriends? Tell us about that.

No boyfriends. Like I said I was pretty boring, plus if you live in a small town and both of your parents are cops, then you weren't invited to any of the parties and boyfriends just didn't exist for you.

5. Did you have any secret codes with your friends? Spill your secrets!

No secret codes, but I do remember the SlamBooks that were passed around between classes and at lunch. 

6. If you could relive one day/moment/experience from middle school or high school, what would it be?

My senior prom so I could ask my crush to be my date (he was a freshman in college by then)..... and I just happen to me married to him :)

Have a great Sunday!!!
