Tonight, The Girl and I are going to start The Paradise.  My friend Jen told me about this series, and I figured while we wait for Downton Abbey to return, it would be the perfect time to start watching it.  It’s is about a girl who heads to the big city and gets a job at The Paradise, Britain’s first high brow department store.

The girl, of course, catches the eye of the store’s owner {I smell a love interest brewing}.  It’s a Masterpiece Classic, so I am sure I will love it.

Peace out Girl Scouts & have yourself a great weekend,

 I love this time of year–there’s magic in the air, seriously.  Tonight The Girl and I are going to kick off winter break by watching one of my all time favorite Christmas movies:  It’s a Wonderful Life.  I have loved this movie since I was a little kid and my daughter has been the same.  I think we’ll each grab a blanket and some candy canes and let the spirit of Christmas wash over us–wahoo!

it's a wonderful life

Peace out Girl Scouts & have yourself a great weekend,

Friday Night at the Movies – Elf

I don’t know about you, but around here, we have a list of must-see-every-year-Christmas classics. When Elf, with Will Ferrell came out, it quickly made the list.  It’s one of those movies that we own, but if you don’t want to buy it, it’s available on Netflix too.

It is hilarious, quirky, and fun–if you haven’t seen it, I totally recommend that you do.  Tonight, the whole fam is going to sit down and watch it together.  I swear, we watch it every year and it never gets old.

My Favorite Line in the whole movie –  ”We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”

If you want to make a whole day of it with your kiddos, start off my making these fun candy trains, that you can then turn around and eat during the movie.

Christmas just isn’t complete without Buddy the Elf’s favorite food group: Maple Syrup

Tonight The Girl and I are going to watch A Christmas Story.  It’s pretty much a holiday staple at our house, in fact, we usually watch it more than once over the holidays–and then continue to quote it all year long.  It’s one we own, but you can also get it on Amazon Prime and Netflix.

Now don’t shoot your eye out!

Okay, time to fess up. How many times have you seen A Christmas Story?

Peace out Girl Scouts & Merry Christmas,

~Mavis

P.S. I think one of these Christmas Story Leg Lamps would look awesome in my office, don’t you?

Tonight, I plan on watching Chow Down.  It follows a man, who after being told he had heart disease, seeks to reverse it with dietary changes.  You know I am a sucker for the “power of food” sorts of documentaries, so I am interested in WHAT type of changes he will be making to improve his overall health.  I am pretty sure it is safe to say that the processed stuff is going out of the window.

Friday Night at the Movies – Doc Martin

This weekend, I am going to start up watching Doc Martin.  I’ve seen a few of these episodes in the past but now that hot cocoa and foot pajama season is upon us, The Girl and I thought now was the perfect time to watch the entire series.

It’s about a surgeon, who develops an aversion to blood, so he moves out to the country to practice medicine in a town where he is the only doctor.  It is classic British humor–which at this point, it is no secret that I love all things British.  Plus, bonus:  it is FREE with Amazon Prime.  Yippee!

Friday Night at the Movies – Mountain Men

Tonight, I am going to try out a History channel series called Mountain Men.  It is about three men who choose to live with very little monetary income and make their survival off of the land.

I think it will be pretty interesting to see how modern day world translates into their desire to live off of the grid. Each of the men have slightly different stories–two of them have families.  I am always amazed at people who make the commitment to do this sort of thing–sometimes, I even wish I had what it took.

Friday Night at the Movies – Good Neighbours

I’ve decided to put Good Neighbours {called Good Life in the U.K.} on my watchlist.  I started watching this series several years ago, but never finished it.   I figured it would be a great this winter when there is nothing to do but sort through seeds and watch T.V.  It’s classic British humor, and a sitcom, so it really only takes a 30 minute commitment.  I don’t know about you, but sometimes, I like to throw light-hearted shows like this on while I’m baking.

Happy times, I tell ya.

Hot diggety dog!  They just added Forrest Gump to Amazon Instant Video, so I am, of course, going to watch it this weekend.  I love this movie.  I loved it the first time I watched it, and I’ve loved it each of the 478 subsequent times I’ve seen it.

In honor of National Food Day yesterday, tonight The Girl and I are going to watch Nourish:  Food + Community.  It’s a PBS documentary that explores the power of real food.  It looks like the documentary focuses on educating our youth on food production, possibility and preparation.  You all know how I love a good food documentary, so I am super excited to check this one out.
