My Girlfriends Boyfriend

I watched this movie and it was so cute. I feel like I am pretty good at predicting things but this one throws you for a loop at the end… Go check it out on Netflix now. Thank me later. 🙂

My Last Five Girlfriends:

I need to clarify – just in case any of you were misled by the title… NOT my last five girlfriends but Duncan’s.  🙂

I watched this super cute, very artful, movie on Netflix this weekend.

I really love movies like this! If you like British, rom-com indie movies this is for you!!

The movie follows Duncan through his last five girlfriends… He is trying to figure out where they each went wrong and how he can do better with the next one.  I thought it was very different/artsy not story-wise… I mean been there done that with other movies, for example: this one (not good)   but it held my attention with the way it was put together and I really wanted to know how it would turn out for him. I thought he was a cute/funny character and I was really rooting for him. Sometimes the acting can be a little cheesy… not that bad in my opinion for this movie!

Only one small complaint: They defiantly could have picked a better looking friend for Duncan. I mean especially for the role they wanted this guy to play.

 If you like these kinds of movies you should go check it out…


Thoughts on Creativity

Hope everyone had a great Easter and I pray that we don’t just think about God and Jesus on Easter and Christmas only.

I feel like I have been a little MIA lately.  Sometimes I get in a creative funk. I do that with my sewing projects and my paintings pretty much anything I get excited about. Example: I wanted to learn how to take better pictures so I bought a pretty nice camera – I only used it for about a month or two and now it’s been about 6 months since I have touched it.

I come up with this great ideas and then I put all my focus and attention for the next however many hours it take me to finish it and sometimes I can spin multiple ideas off one but then I burn out. I get bored with it and I won’t touch my camera,  sewing machine or a paint brush for weeks. It’s not that I don’t think about it.

I should go get my camera out and practice or learn something new. I should go paint a picture or I should go sew something, I should go write on my blog… etc.

I am going to try to be better. I would like to combine all the things I like to do into one. It’s hard though. Someday, I feel like when I get married and have kids, I won’t have the kind of time I have now and I need to start getting better at using the time I have now, so one day I won’t look back and think… ” I should have (sewn/taken pictures/painted/journaled…) more.”

What I need to do –  is not put so much pressure on myself to come with the BEST idea or project and just do it because I like to and do it for the sake of doing it.

Sometimes, the best ideas come from starting something and rearranging it and just making it as you go.

In fact, I think I will sew or paint tonight – maybe I will bust out the camera I paid a lot of money for too!!

Does anyone else ever feel like this??

Side note:

This looks like a movie I would love…


The Lucky One

My current read… and of course, I LOVE It.

Nicholas Sparks is the best right?  A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, The Last Song, Dear John…

I was given the book about a year ago to read by someone and I never picked it up, it wasn’t the right time then I guess.

Then later, I see the trailer – and wondered why did I wait so long?….

I can’t put the book down and I am SO excited to see this movie and of course  I do love me some Zac Efron. ❤

I am only half way through the book – knowing Nicholas Sparks it will be super sad and I am sure I will be bawling my eyes out here in a couple of days. (I think those are the best books though…right?!)
