Hooray For Hollywood

Hello, I hope your having a good weekend! I'm looking forward to the Oscars show, even though I have not seen any of the movies that are nominated this year, I've seen enough clips of them to have an idea of the stories and the actors performances. I remember as a little girl, the excitement of going to the movies, I loved eating their chocolate ice cream cones, and of course the popcorn, still love the popcorn, but now I can't eat as much of it as I did back then! Pete has never been one to enjoy going to the movies, so as our kids grew I was more than happy to take them to the movies every chance I could, or once in a while get to one with a friend. I'm excited too that this year we are going to take my granddaughter Briana to see her first movie, the Lorax by Dr. Seuss. Yes, the movies are a wonderful and magical thing, we can escape our lives and live in lives of others, real or not real, for a short period of time. So absolutely Hooray for Hollywood! I hope you enjoy the show tonight as well.
Thanks for visiting,
Janet :)

Some of my Favorite Movies

I think the women of today look
Beautiful on the red carpet,

But I love the look of old Hollywood,
it is simple, yet gorgeous!

  1. I too love the movies you posted. The Sandlot is a personal favorite...funny that I do not own it. Hmm. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the Oscars. And I read the book and saw the movie 'The Help' and both were fantastic. Such a powerful look into a world many of us have never known. So glad all is well with you Janet.

  2. Dear Dolly, Enjoy the show tonight.
    Have fun with your granddaughter and her first movie. That will be a treat for all.
    Blessings and have a wonderful Sunday, Catherine xo

  3. Thank you Catherine and Pink, It is always good to hear from you both! Thanks for the info on the movie the help Pink, I will have to see it, and I'm glad to know we have the same taste in Movies :)

  4. At least of your favourite films are on my Best Ever-list, too. "Fried Green Tomatoes", of course, and "Steel Magnolia". Those two will always make me laugh and cry! PS: the show's over and our Frenchie Jean Dujardin had a good bite! Well done for him, he's one of those "new" French actors I really appreciate... Best to you from Paris, D.

  5. Thank you Dieter, I'm so glad you and I have the same movies on our favorites list. I was happy for Jean Dujardin, he did deserve the award from what I have seen of his performance in The Artist. It was nice to also see his genuine appreciation for the recognition!
    Best to you as well :)
