Peas and carrots.
Got kind of a late start on the day today! Had some trouble sleeping so I slept later than expected. [Oops.] I popped in a movie that I started watching last night but fell asleep. It’s one from my childhood “Anne of Green Gables”. Any of you ever watch that back in the day? I feel like a huge dork everytime I watch it because it’s so cheesy and romantic and dated, but I don’t care, I love it. Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong time era. Many times I feel that I connect more with older movies than the ones being made today. Ya know the old ones built on the values and morals that don’t exist much so anymore. [Sigh].
Anyways, morning coffee was a given. I had some leftover pancake batter so I had pancakes round #2. Just as good as the first 🙂

Continuing on with the old movie theme. I am OBSESSED with Alfred Hitchcock movies. Most of you who know me, already knew that! The first movie of his I saw was Psycho [shocker huh?] I was at my cousin’s house and we decided to rent it. I was pretty freaked out to take showers after that but I loved the movie. So from then on I would find as many Hitchcock movies as I could and would watch them. I now have a huge collection. Anyways. When I went to Orlando, Florida years ago, they had this Hitchcock exhibit [I think it was in MGM] and I found these movie posters and freaked. They now hang in my living room above my tv. And yes, they were a pain to hang [Thanks to my Aunt and Uncle!!]
Today was an Ugg kind of day…
We had a windy night last night so when I went outside today A lot of the leaves had fallen. But it still looked pretty out today.
I wandered all day. I needed to go to Target to get a few household items. From there I went to Marshalls and Staples and West Elm. I love West Elm. They’ve got some funky stuff. Did you know they accept Williams-Sonoma gift cards?? Well, they do. And I’ve been holding onto about three of those puppies and can’t figure out what to spend them on. I blame Williams-Sonoma for being so darn expensive. Anyway West Elm was having a dining and linen sale. SCORE!!
After that I wandered over to Southpark and ended up in the mall [Don’t know how that happened!!]. Browsed a few stores, nothing great. But SANTA was there! Haha. I remember being younger and being excited to see him at the mall. I then went around the corner to Crate & Barrel [Another SCORE!!]. I came home with some awesome loot!! See?
The placemat, napkins, plates and leaf dish are from West Elm. The spoons and ravioli stamp [uhh random??] are from Crate & Barrel.
Dinner was simple. Leftover soup! Instead tonight, to cut down the spiciness I cooked up some white rice and added it to it. Side of a cheese quesadilla. Yum. I love rice. It’s so versatile. [*Take note of the spoon and placemat 😀 ]
Dessert was simple as well. TJ’s chocolate and caramel wafers. I really wanted some homemade cookies, but wasn’t THAT motivated. [*Take note of the napkin!*]
Now I’m winding down with a small glass of Pinot Grigio and some Forest Gump [Hence the title of the post!!] I love this movie. Sometimes at work we quote this movie for what seems like five minutes. Should I be embarrassed I know half the lines to this movie?? [Don’t Judge!]
Going up to the lake tomorrow!! Yay!
Mi Amigo says goodnight!! [There was a time where this guy wore a sombrero!]
