About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Movie Swap Package

   I received the most wonderful package from Lyn the other day!  She was my partner in the very fun Movie Swap!  She decided on a theme of "Vintage at the Movies" and I loved her creativity!  First of all, she wrote me a letter telling the history of the movies (Follow Me, Boys! and Savannah Smiles), the soda (Verners Ginger Ale), the vintage candy (Necco Wafers, Mike & Ike, Snaps, Sugar Babies AND Dots!), the popcorn (Jolly Time) and the vintage game (Rock, Paper, Scissors)!  Her cousin is even one of the police officers in the movie "Savannah Smiles"!

   Last night we decided to have Movie Night at our house, thanks to Lyn!  We watched "Savannah Smiles" and loved it!  Of course, the popcorn, candy, soda and game made it even better!  We had tons of everything left over for our next movie night of "Follow Me, Boys!"

What a fun swap!! My brother and his wife made us up a movie night box for Christmas one year and it was so much fun.
