Rewind Repost: January 2014

Happy Monday, BAW Readers! Hope you all had a great weekend. I surely did. Hubby turned 40 on yesterday and we celebrated all weekend. Friends, family, video tributes, food, and cocktails. Truly a blessing.

 

Thank you all who wished me well for my 1 Year Blogiversary last week. I found a lot of joy in your congratulatory comments. As far as the giveaway, the winner is…

Kathi from Oak Hill Homestead

Congratulations, Kathi! I’ll be in touch about sending you an autographed copy of my novel Acting On Her Behalf and some fabulous Louisiana seasonings.

 

Today I am kicking off one of my new features that I mentioned in my 1 Year Blogiversary post. It’s called REWIND REPOST. I will do an update of one of my previous posts monthly.

In April 2013, I wrote a post called My Imitation of Life Jumped Off a Streetcar Named Desire. I talked about how I had gotten away from watching movies, a huge passion of mine. While publishing my novel, being a WAHM, blogging, and living in general–I had stopped watching anything longer than an hour on television. Going to the movies has been practically obsolete. And boy was I missing it. So I decided to make time for it.

This past year, I started watching my old faves from the 80s. Movies that I loved as a kid and wanted to share with the Deuce. You can read how that well-intentioned gesture went south in my post, I Gave it a Thumbs Up Until it Gave Me the Middle Finger.

I have missed so many great movies. Thank goodness for paid premium channels, NetFlix, and OnDemand. I am happy to say that I have been making time to watch some great films alone, with The Deuce, with Hubby, and as a family. The most recent things I have seen are:

Despicable Me 2

Broken City 

Life of Pi

Kung Fu Panda

A Good  Day to Die Hard

…and several LifeTime movies

 

It’s time for Traffic Jam Weekend this Thursday. Be sure to stop by and link up your old posts for new traffic and comment luv!
