Three awesome things...

Number One:
I recently went to see Julie & Julia with a good friend and LOVED it for several reasons....
Meryl Streep is an incredible actress and she played Julia Childs to a perfect tee.
Julia Childs is the household name for great cooking and left us (she just died in 2005?) with the winsome cookbook: Mastering the Art of French Cooking - for servantless Americans.
I adored this movie so much I went to see it AGAIN with my sister and am toying with the idea of watching it a third time, this time with my hubby? LOL.
It was about the love of cooking and fellowshipping over a meal but it also ended up being a tender, inspiring look at great marriages and beautiful relationships.
Here's a brief synopsis: Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia intertwines the lives of two women who, though separated by time and space, are both at loose ends...until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible

*sigh* I'd recommend it.

A few nights ago, feeling recklessly inspired, I donned my pearls, (a fundamental detail to be sure!) wrapped an apron around me and searched out her famous recipe for Beef Bourguignon - I know I shouldn't be the one to say it but, YUM!! the leftovers are still being drooled over.
I think I could get into this in a serious, addictive way.

Number Two: Our two first born grand-daughters came over for a two-night sleepover including a Sunday morning worship service. We unveiled the Playmobil Mansion which has been collecting dust in Grandpa's closet for ten years waiting for such a moment as this....

It was a big hit with my girlie girls. Shucks, who's highlight was this anyway??

Little coin purses I found that doubled nicely as Sunday condiment (i.e. filled with YoGo bites) for the worship service on Sunday morning.

Quiet Time on Aunt Catherine's bed.

Trying to identify their own baby portraits. LOL.

Number Three: Spending the weekend with my JuneBug and the Rachinator. We love you guys SO much it almost hurts!


  1. Looks like Rachel had such a great time! (boy am I paying for it today, though:)

    Love the third pic of the mansion - the girls are all squished trying to get a piece of the action!


Thanks for visiting today. Carpe Diem!
