Thursday 13 #3

Quotes from 13 of my ALL time favorite movies!
I actually got this idea from Cecily, but I liked the idea so much that I stole it! Everyone makes fun of me because every time someone mentions a movie, I say, "Oh, I love that movie! It's my favorite!" So, to prove my point, these are quotes from 13 of MY favorites. These are not NECESSARILY my favorite quotes, but they ARE from my favorite movies! Bonus if you can tell me which movies they are from.

1. That's not how you cut cake, you gotta treat cake like a lady!

2. Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?

3. My old girlfriend from Oklahoma was gonna fly out for the dance but she couldn't cause she's doing some modeling right now.

4. I'm off like a dirty shirt.

5. Who ever thought a little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness?

6. Matty! It's Thriller!

7. Cards with the tards. Who could beat a night of cards, chips, dips and dorks?

8. So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.

9. I've never bagged a babe. I'm not a stud.

10. I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you.

11. Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!

12. Look at me, wasting away to practically nothing!

13. I didn't *break* it, I was merely testing its durability, and I *placed* it in the woods cause it's made of wood and I thought he should be with his family.

Deceptively Delicious??

For the past few days, all I have heard about is THIS book. Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld. She has recipes with (gasp!) fruits and veggies hidden in foods that your (and my!) kids will eat. I decided I really wanted one for myself (and my children), but thought I'd see if anyone was hosting a giveaway first. Well- there is! Hop on over to Island Review to enter to win this book!! Make sure you thank her for hosting this!!

Our camping disaster.

We tried to go camping this weekend. It was supposed to be wonderful. We had big hopes, that didn't exactly include rain! We went to Big Sur, Ca. We got there and it was raining. HARD. We set up my Coleman Geosport Shade (that I got on clearance for $25 at Target) and stayed under that until the rain settled. Then we decided to set up our tent. Halfway through, it started pouring again. So, we erected the tent as quickly as we could. Then, we went out to dinner. I put towels over our duffel bags of clothes, so they wouldn't get drenched. That didn't work out. When we got back, there were PUDDLES in our tent and our clothes were all drenched. Thankfully we all had some sort of air bed to sleep on, so we wouldn't get too wet. The kids all fell asleep quickly, because that's what kids do. BUT...our immediate neighbors of 25+ people thought it would be a great idea to PARTY (screaming and yelling and talking over each other...drunk) until about 2:30 am. Just freakin' great. We were not sleeping through that. So my husband goes out to say something and they have the nerve to tell him he is RUDE! My husband went to the check in lodge to get someone to shut them up, and no one was to be found (How exactly do they ENFORCE the 10 pm quiet time??) We weren't about to pack up and wake the kids at that time, so we sucked it up and slept as best we could. First thing in the morning, we went and talked the the people at check in, got our money back, and left. It was a miserable weekend. I will never camp again in October.

On a lighter note, my big boy turned 12 yesterday! We got him a bike, and he is SO excited. I love him so much-he's such a good boy!
