I had heard nothing but good things about this film and finally decided to purchase it ($6.00 @ Big Lots) today, then watched it tonight.

I LOVE this movie ... the story is beautiful, the characters are endearing and the music is SO good!! I highly recommend, especially if you have any appreciation for music, as you will not be disappointed.

I'm now going straight out this week and purchase the soundtrack.

It's coming ...


Perhaps it was the lack of humidity and the really blue skies today, but somehow I could feel it not too far away. This knowledge is absolute bliss because I am so very ready to welcome the cool crisp air, the leaves, everything about the season, with open arms.

Sounds of Paolo

I almost always have VH1's Jump Start playing in the background of my mornings and lately have been catching the sounds of Paolo Nutini.

The way his voice sounds like an artist from way back when ... it makes me stop and listen every time.

Let Yourself Feel

A lovely clip by Esteban Diacono


Seriously, these trailers are making it really hard to wait for New Moon to debut 11/02/09

Febreze Flameless Luminary

I recently spotted these during a trip to the local Walmart and loved everything about them. They are battery operated (2 AA) and come in an array of various shades each with a different design + scent. They even have adorable autumn themed shades featuring spooky spiders or pumpkins in wonderful fall scents.

The only downfall is that a luminary starter kit cost about $15 ... So perhaps they'll offer a coupon for them soon?


I received the best surprise this weekend, when my very awesome aunt and uncle gifted me this lovely ice cream maker. The very same ice cream maker that unbeknown to them has been on my wish list since hearing about theirs. I was completely taken aback with their generosity and very excited to put this lovely device to work; the possibilities are endless!!

Hmm ...

I just spotted this preview (via pigeon toed) of the coming-of-age drama, An Education, and it looks really, really good.

For A Laugh

Sports Videos, News, Blogs

This skit always gets me rolling with laughter and that is always a great way to start the weekend.


I hate it when you have a complete brain-fart moment and say something so completely dumb to someone ... for example give the name of a baseball team the name of a football team from a different state !?! ... and realize it moments after your conversation ends.
Then wonder what an idiot they think you are and if they will recall this embarrassing moment every time they see you from now on.

I'm SO Excited

And I just can't hide it! GREEK has become one of my favorite tv shows and this preview of the new season makes me so happy ... please oh please let Casey and Cappie end up together!! Yes, I am a GREEK geek :)

ps: I'm liking the song on this video too.

Bag It

I really like this bag, not sure if it is the various colors or what but think it is a most adorable tote.

So ...

I turned 25 a week ago today, but I never finished my wish list!! This simply won't do (I love lists too much) and so I will be trying to complete the list over the next few days/posts.

If you absolutely LOVED (500) Days of Summer then you just might love this extra little video too, found via Destined to Design.

Oh my, I simply adore Joseph and wish Zooey was one of my best friends.

Presto Pesto

This recipe/photo is from Black Eiffel, a favorite blog, and I am plan to use it when trying my hand at making homemade pesto. Yummy!

A Hymn

This is so pretty ... the song and the photos. It reminds me of my trips to Africa where you have such beautiful creatures roaming the landscapes and the people so full of joy.
