Movie Marathon

Now that the weather is turning colder, my hibernation instincts are in full swing. Ever feel like kickin’ back and watching movies ALL day long? This is the perfect time of year for it.

My family and I have coined this as “Movie Marathon Day”. My brother and I used to do it all the time as kids with my parents at the cottage. On a rainy day, we’d all grab a blanket, a bowl of popcorn and each take turns picking a movie to watch. Mom and I would always pick a tear-jerker – Kleenex box in hand. Dad and the Bro would just roll their eyes. Great memories!

The Angels are not quite old enough to partake in Movie Marathon Day – not yet anyway. But we still enjoy a quiet afternoon in from time to time, watching a flick (of their choice) together.

This got me to thinking back to Thanksgiving weekend, where my Mom and I introduced Angel # 1 to the movie 13 Going on 30. I love that movie! It’s a feel good movie, with a great 80′s vibe and music. Angel # 1 LOVED it. In fact, she has re-watched it 3 times already.

I can understand why. The movie makes me smile too. So does Mark Ruffalo. That man is so delicious and charming. Love him! I know Jennifer Garner gets crapped on in the press. But I just think she is so good in this movie. I really believe she is 13 again.

We all love the scene where they dance to Thriller. I always get up and bust a move.

Do you like re-watching old movies? I used to – but now with kids – time is precious. I would prefer to watch something new. Sometimes though, a great movie comes along and you can watch it over and over again. 13 going on 30 is one of those movies for me!

Thank god we subscribe to NetFlix. If you don’t – start! You can re-watch old movies over and over again. There are also a lot of new movies!!

Fun for everyone.

Simply Yours,
