TBT - 80's Fantasy Movies

I am going to start doing a Throwback Thursday post. The topics will be random but should be fun. If you like these posts please let me know in the comments and I will keep doing them! =)

My all time favorite 80's fantasy flick is and always will be:

The Dark Crystal
The Podling dance is my favorite part of the movie. I have watched this flick so many times I can't even count. Like, falling asleep watching it every night kind of thing. I have several versions of it. VHS, DVD, Bluray, Collectors Editions. Huge fan of this movie. Huge fan. Jim Henson, God Bless that man and how he inspired me from very early on in my life.

Next up: 

Legend

Young (non crazy) Tom Cruise, unicorns, and an awesome love story. What's not to love, right? And the soundtrack is amazing!! Tangerine Dream, helllllooooo!!!

Last, but not least:

The Princess Bride
Not loving this movie is simply "inconceivable". Buttercup, Wesley, giants, sea monsters and even Fred Savage. (I had a massive Fred Savage crush in the 80's...thanks Wonder Years).

Obviously, I was a fantasy lover even in my early days. There are plenty of other 80's flicks that I love, but those will come in a different TBT 80's flick post. So tell me, what was your favorite 80's fantasy flick?

Happy TBT

  1. The Last Unicorn, hands down. It didn't help that I owned the Kenny Loggins CD with the song on it, and it was the best thing ever. It doesn't even matter that it came out five years before I was born.

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:


Spring Break 2017

Kiddo is only in preschool, but their preschool still had spring break. The teachers needed I break and I can totally respect that. Here are some pictures of our week:

Day One:
Made a homemade chalkboard for outside. I decided on a smaller piece of wood that I could move in and out of the garage and not have to worry about leaving it out all year and deal with weather damage. So far it has been  a huge success but a major pain in the butt to clean. I little cleaning research and I will be golden.

Day 2:
Working in the garden. Kiddo and I love working in the garden and she even planted her own daisies that she is now responsible for. She loves going out to check on them every day (we planted seeds so she is eagerly waiting for them to sprout) and when it is watering day it's sheer bliss for her!


Day 3:
Dance Class (no photos because they are pretty strict about that at her dance studio) and after lunch some good playtime at the park!

Day 4:
We must have partied too hard the first …
