Well first and foremost…..I ACTUALLY won a giveaway! I, who never ever win anything! Really, never ever. So I was beyond thrilled when I got an e-mail from Carolee from king of mice telling me that I had won her giveaway during the Mad Tea Party!
This cute potion bottle is going to look fabulous with my Halloween decorations this year! Just what I needed to add to my collection. I had really truly been wanting to start a collection of bottles! Now I have a start and just the excuse that I needed to acquire more!
Thank you soooooo much Carolee! I appreciate your kindness and am so excited about my winnings!
Lucky lucky me!
Heather had FREE (gotta love that word) tickets to the movie premier of Julie Julia! The story of Julia Child and her time in Europe when she was struggling to write her first cook book. And the story of Julie, a blogger who in 2002 blogged about and cooked all of the recipes in the book ‘ Mastering The Art of French Cooking’ in 365 days.
I had no idea what to expect but I have to say that it was a WONDERFUL movie. So so funny and Meryl Streep played Julia Child to a tee! The vintage costumes were amazing as were the images of Paris, France from that period. The modern story was also delightful and funny. The movie goes back and forth between the two stories.
I absolutely hate to cook but I’m tempted to buy this cookbook after watching the movie. I said TEMPTED you notice!
Anywho, I would definitely recommend this one as soon as it comes out! A great chick flick for a “ girls night out” movie! Which is exactly what Heather and I did. We had dinner, did so well splitting one meal and having iced tea. Thought we were doing so well not eating any popcorn or candy during the movie and almost, almost made it to the car but alas….. ice cream was calling our name! I’d say that pretty well blew it and then some. But we had a great evening!
Have a wonderful week!
