Five Things: Movies You L-O-V-E

Happy Fourth of July, Friends!  I hope that you're having a wonderful day so far.  Since Harry and I both have the day off (thank goodness!), we celebrated some last night with Harry's Aunt and Uncle by heading to the driving range.  That's and beer...'Murica!

I haven't swung a golf club in many, many years.  I used to play, I daresay "often", with my parents when I was a kid.  Harry has never swung a club (on purpose, with the intentions of hitting a golf ball)!  In fact, he stuck with an angled baseball swing at the beginning of our session.  He eventually found the right biomechanics for a good swing and started hitting some pure shots.  We both have a ton of work to do before even thinking about stepping up to a tee box.

I worked with a lot of fades and slices for a majority of the time.  *le sigh*  With every swing, I could hear my Daddio's correction cues in my head.  "You're swinging too hard," was the main one.

I love how Harry really took to hitting the ball.  We are always excited to have new things to do together, not to mention things we can do with other people.  Several of our friends and family members play golf on the regular, so it definitely opens up opportunities for more social funsies.

After a quick run with Harry this morning, we grabbed some coffee at the local shop around the corner, City Newsstand, then came home and got ready for some World Cup action.  Germany vs. France...wooooo!  It wasn't an exceptionally exciting game, but my team won.


Onto my five for this Friday.  There are movies that I absolutely must watch every once in a while.  I don't just love them; I L-O-V-E them.  You know what I'm talking about -- the plot you love, the setting you adore, the actors you have some strange affinity toward.  They make you feel good, they can make you cry, and sometimes, they can pump you up!  By no means are these movies my absolute favorites, nor do I only L-O-V-E five movies.  It just sounded good for Friday, bwahaha.

5.  "Pride and Prejudice" 
I read this book when I was about 15.  I, like so many others, was given a good chunk of time to use my imagination regarding the setting and descriptions used by Austen.  To me, this was the best movie version, by far.

4.  "The Secret"
I watch this movie at least once a year.  I feel like I

3.  "Breakfast at Tiffany's"
I have a healthy addiction to Audrey Hepburn.  I think she was one of the most fantastic creatures on God's green earth.  This film is the quirkiest movie I've ever, ever.  It has beauty, class, dancing, charm, humor, awkwardness, and prostitution, all rolled into one flick!

2.  "Sabrina" 
I know.  Two Hepburn movies.  But I couldn't give this lovely lady a movie TIE!  I don't L-O-V-E this movie more than I love "Breakfast at Tiffany's", but I will watch it more often for warm fuzzies.

1.  "Rocky".  In fact, I-IV.  I don't think I have to explain this one.  I plan on rocking these out on Sunday.

Do you have a *TOP FIVE* of movies you L-O-V-E?

Have you every played golf?  If so, are you any good?  COME PLAY WITH US!:)

Are you more of a movie person, or a book person?
-I'm wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more of a movie person!  WAY!

Big plans for Fourth of July weekend?  TELL TELL TELL!
-Harry and I are chillin' on the back deck with some pizza and watching some fireworks.  LOW KEY, compared to last year!  :)


  1. My dad is a big time golfer, so I grew up playing. I like the driving range way more than actually playing, haha. I don't have enough of an attention span for that.
    And we discussed this, I have yet to see Rocky. Un american, I know. But Always yes to Audrey Hepburn. Always.

    1. I haven't even played a course in close to fifteen years. I agree with you, though...the driving range is way more funsies! We should go together sometime! And then we'll watch "Rocky". <3

  2. Rocky is one of my favorites as well - I just discovered your blog and have only read a couple posts so far. I love golfing - although it has taken a major backseat since I started running again a few years ago!
