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!

Anne and Gilbert

   Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe.  What a romance....  I also love Anne's "kindred spirit" friend, Diana.  I am a lot like her.  I wish I could be more adventurous like Anne.  Remember when Diana (unintentionally) got drunk on cherry cordial?  And who could forget Merilla and Matthew?  I just about cry when I think of how shy Matthew was and how he went into town to buy the dress with "puffed sleeves" for Anne.  Oh, he adored her.  

   What is your favorite part of the story?  Please share.:)

favorite part was when Diana got drunk and Anne didn't know what was going on, and got in trouble. But then I was so sad because they were kept apart. =)

Oh my goodness! I love every single one of them. How could you choose just one part? Megen Follows did a perfect job of playing Anne. I had a secret crush on Gilbert. I hope the read these books to Sloan in the next year or so. I love it! I had forgotten about this series.

Favorite part?!?! What!!!

I LOVED♥LOVED the whole movie (both) and still do. I own them on DVD and watch them all the time. Although I have to say the
3rd one I will not buy. It just wasn't the same for me.

Man now I wanna go and watch me some Anne & Gill.... :)

I'm with Artfulife...I, too, had a crush on Gilbert!! That was one fine guy!!

I love the Avonlea series and just the whole Anne of Green Gables/Avonlea story! I agree with Katrina, I thought the Diana getting drunk part was pretty funny! I love all the "hot" and "cold" moments between Anne and Gilbert-they were so cute! My girls grew up watching Avonlea on TV and we still have all the VHS tapes. One year we went to Williamsburg and they had to buy "Anne" hats so they could play her at home!

I have never seen or heard about this movie! Where have I been in a fall out shelter all these years? It sounds wonderful Lori!
