My 80′s revival is still going strong.  Tonight we are going to watch Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on the laptop since our t.v. has been packed up.  Maybe with The Girl off to college I am trying to recapture the light-heartedness of my youth?  Or maybe I just think this movie is awesome.  Either way, it’s free on Prime and I’m watching it.

Remember how COOL Mathew Broderick was?  I think we were all pretty much in love with Ferris, wouldn’t you say? ;)

Peace out Girl Scouts & have yourself a great weekend,

I’m still truckin’ along on my John Hughes kick.  Tonight, I’m planning on watching Sixteen Candles.  I like to re-watch it every few years because…well, it’s awesome.  If you haven’t seen it {you’ve been living under a rock, and it’s time to come out…kidding}, it’s about a girl whose family forgets her 16th birthday.  It’s “what’s happenin’ hot-stuff,” so you should totally check it out :) .

Have you have already seen it?  Did you love it? Hate it? Can’t wait to watch it over and over?

Friday Night at the Movies – Uncle Buck

I’m on a John Hughes kick lately.  He seriously puts out what I would call the “classics” of the 80′s and 90′s.  This weekend, I am going to watch Uncle Buck.  In case you haven’t seen it, it’s about a couple who need someone to watch their kids while they head out of town on a family emergency.  The only option is the husband’s less-than-desirable brother:  Uncle Buck.  John Candy is awesome as Uncle Buck–seriously, you will quote this movie for the rest of your life.

I love revisiting my favorite comedies.  What’s your favorite John Hughes movie?  Maybe I’ll add it to my fall line-up.

Friday Night at the Movies – The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Tonight I am going to watch The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.  I have wanted to see it since it came out {in 2008, I am only a little late}, but never got around to it.  It is about the son of a German soldier who befriends a little boy on the other side of the fence of a concentration camp.  It is supposed to be excellent, though, with fair warning, it will probably be heart-wrenching.

Friday Night at the Movies – Second Hand Lions

We are pretty busy around here, so no movie for us this Friday, but if you are looking for a movie the whole family {older kids, at least, it’s rated PG} can watch, I recommend you check out Second Hand Lions.

It’s about a little boy that has a less than desirable life with his flighty irresponsible mother.  The mother decides on a whim to drop him off to spend the summer with two uncles he has never met.   It is such a great story about a boy {and ultimately the uncles} getting what he needs, when he needs it most.  It’s one of those surprisingly feel good movies, with quirky humor.  It really is great.

Amazon just added Chocolat to their list of free movies Prime members can stream.  If you have never seen it, let me tell you, you really should.  It is about a woman who moves to a small village and opens a chocolaterie.  First of all, it’s about chocolate.  I really shouldn’t have to say more.  But, it is also a great story about the little french village and the people in it.

Tell me this video doesn’t just make you happy. It’s pure awesomeness. Go grandma, go! I totally hope that when I’m 88, I’m loving life like this little dancing nana is. What a spit fire!

Have you have already seen it? Don’t you agree that she’s the coolest grandma ever?

After watching Queen of Versailles, One Hundred Dollars a Month reader left a suggestion on Facebook that I counteract the madness by watching Tiny: A Story About Living Small.  Holy buckets, after watching that train wreck, I kind of need some balance, so thanks Dina for the suggestion!  {If you have Netflix, it is available to stream for free.}

Friday Night at the Movies – Lark Rise to Candleford

In my love of all things BBC, I stumbled on a series called Lark Rise to Candleford.   It’s set in a small hamlet called Lark Rise during the end of the 19th century.  According to the BBC website, it is a drama based on the memoir of Flora Thompson’s childhood–though, with a little love, intrigue and drama mixed in.  Yes, please.  I can’t wait to start it.

I just started the series Land Girls.  I’m only 2 episodes in, but I LOVE it!  It’s about a group of women who were members of the Women’s Land Army {women who worked on British farms during WWII}.  The series follows the women’s lives through just about everything you might expect.  It’s awesome.

Netflix has it for free, if you are a Netflix member.
