Hellooo, hellooo, helloooo

Just letting everyone know I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I have, however, been dealing with the end of my son's school, the beginning of summer programs, the end of my daughter's naps, the beginning of potty training, and sickness times, like, 13. I'm in the process of getting over the stomach flu and plan to resume posting as soon as I'm better. Take care everyone!

Movie Madness!

I looove movies. My date night of choice is catching the latest blockbuster at the theater or renting and curling up on the couch with my hubby. This summer movie season is killing me, though! This weekend we went to my sixth movie since it started and still have a whole bunch to go. When did movies get so expensive require the handing over of your firstborn to see??? Here is a list of what I have seen so far and what I think of them:

1. Horton Hears a Who - Totally cute. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, not just kids.

2. Iron Man - One of the best superhero movies ever made (and trust me, I know my superhero movies). A bonus: Robert Downey Jr.! Never been a big fan of his, but yum!

3. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - Most definitely did not live up to the first three but I liked it better than most people such as my brother-in-law who put it on the bottom of his list along with Freddy got Fingered and Little Nicky.

4. Sex and the City - Sooo good! Many people think it didn't do the TV show justice but I think it was everything the show was and more! As my sister put it, "We laughed, we cried, we laughed so hard we cried".

5. The Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian - Better than The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Ben Barnes as Prince Caspian fell a little flat but he was nice to look at, at least :-)

6. Kung Fu Panda - Awesome! I usually side with Pixar and tend to not like Dreamworks movies as much but this one was right up there with Finding Nemo and Monster's Inc. A bonus was that my son is totally obsessed with pandas so he was so excited to see this movie.

Has anyone else seen any of these movies? Do you agree or disagree with my opinions? Leave me a comment and let me know what you though!

As if that weren't enough movies to go to, there are a whole list of movies that are coming out that I'll be seeing in the theater. Here they are:

The Incredible Hulk

Get Smart




Hellboy II: The Golden Army (this one pretty much I'm going to get dragged to by my husband)

Journey to the Center of the Earth

The Dark Knight

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Whew, I'm tired (and broke) from just typing that list! How about you guys? Are there any movies you are excited for? Anything you've been waiting for with bated breath? Share!

Just for laughs!

I was randomly surfing the web today and stumbled upon a great blog involving Photoshop. It's called 'Photoshop Disasters'. As you can probably guess by the title, it's all about finding and showcasing photoshop failures. 

There are a lot of pictures on there that you have to wonder "what were these people thinking?" You would think if someone is creating an ad for a company they would pay a little more attention to what the final result is. Here are two of my favorites:

Obviously some people just don't care...Oh well, more laughs for the rest of us!

Treasury love!

I finally got a Treasury! For those of you not familiar with Etsy or their Treasury, it is a way to share some of your favorite items on Etsy with its community. The only problem is they only allow you to create a new one when the amount of lists have dropped below 333. People literally calculate the exact moment this will happen and lay in wait to create their own lists. Today I got lucky and happened onto the Treasury just before it opened up and I got my own! I decided to go with Superheroes since I had found so many great products while I was searching for my 5 favorite things recently. So here it is: Superpowers!
