Favorite February Flicks

We watch a lot of movies around these parts. Thought I'd share some favorites from this month.

Beasts of the Southern Wild :: This film is so beautiful and so sad all at the same time. I was a literally a puddle at the end. You know, the kind of really embarrassing cry when you start hyperventilating a little. That happened. It was so very worth it, though. Hushpuppy will steal your heart. It's a must see.

Argo :: If you watched the Oscars this week, you know this movie is kind of a big deal. I was on board when I saw Ben Affleck was the director. He recently directed The Town and I just thought that movie was the bee's knees. Argo definitely doesn't disappoint. I even learned a thing or two about history.

Life Is But A Dream :: Beyonce. Enough said, right? This documentary aired on HBO this month and was quite the treat. Loved getting a glimpse into her sweet marriage and pregnancy. Her love for the Lord and her family is so inspiring and refreshing. OK, so I watched it twice. Not even ashamed.

Safety Not Guaranteed :: This movie is simply the cutest. You just can't go wrong with a little romance and sci-fi. So what happens when you answer a classified ad seeking a partner for a time travel expedition? It's pretty magical. You might even cry some happy tears. Two thumbs up.

Sinister :: If you know me, you know I am a huge horror movie buff. I'm always very impressed when a movie actually scares me. Well, Sinister did. Tad didn't find it as scary. Clearly he must have fallen asleep. Ethan Hawke nails it. You will never look at Super 8 film the same. So creepy. You've been warned!

Valentine's Day Tea Party

It's no secret my sister-in-law knows how to throw a party. Take Carter's Birthday party for instance. Well, she has done it again with the sweetest Valentine's Tea Party! We enjoyed the most scrumptious sweets and tasty teas. Definitely the best tea party I've ever been to. Watch out, Mad Hatter.

Two thumbs up for Chelsea and her labor of love! Can't wait for it again next year.

A Sunday Stroll

After church and one long afternoon nap on Sunday, we went on a neighborhood stroll. We really like this neighborhood. There are a few reasons why we will surely miss it when we leave. We've been going on these strolls quite a bit lately. Our favorite thing to do is check out the beautiful homes and discuss our own dream home we plan to build one day. We're big dreamers like that. We agree on almost everything. We also like to get friendly with the street cats. I took a picture with one, but it was kind of play attacking me so it came out too blurry. Maybe next time.
