Back to the Future

You know that movie that you could watch over and over again, for me it is Back to the Future and crazy thing is it is celebrating it's 25 year anniversary.... that means I am old. I was just a teenager when it came out. I think Back to the Future ranks right up there w/ Goonies.

What is one of your favorite movies you could watch over and over again?

You Capture: Autumn

Nothing screams Autumn more than a trip to the apple orchard. Hay rides, apple cider, apples, donuts, and pumpkins of all sizes. I love the cinnamon sugar covered donuts and caramel apples! What did you capture?

Halls Review and Giveaway

Well now that my son is back in school that means cold season is here, yuck! One thing I know for sure is that when I go to the drug store looking to purchase cough drops Halls have been a trusted brand in our household for many years.

Aloha Friday: No raisins please

When you were a kid what was the one candy you didn't like to receive when Trick or Treating?

For me it was Whoppers and Raisins.

Aloha Friday: Halloween Costumes

What is your kiddo/kiddos being for Halloween?

Aloha Friday: Something very annoying...

Something I find very annoying is when people talk on cell phones while at a restaurant. I mean do I really want to hear your drama and smacking at the same time while I am trying to enjoy my meal?

Tell me something you find really annoying?

Wordless Wednesday: Ballet Slippers

These are my brand spanking new ballet slippers. I am taking a adult ballet class at the studio I danced at for 15 years. It has been almost 20 years since I have danced and it feels so good, a bit like riding a bike. It is funny now that I am older I am even more critical of myself.
