Movie Review and other things to look forward to

My daughter and I went to see the new movie "Julie and Julia" yesterday and I just had to write up a little review for everyone as a way to encourage you to GO SEE THIS MOVIE! It was really good!! I wasn't expecting it to be so good but it really was!

The movie flip flops between Julia Child's story of her start in the cooking world and Julie Powell's story of cooking her way through Julia Child's cookbook in one year. This is a Julia Child most of us have never seen...starting out, not successful, in love with her husband, building a life for herself and him...very sweet and poignant. And Meryl Streep was fantastic!!!! Now I only remember Julia Child as an OLD woman so in looks she wasn't too dead-on for me but her mannerisms and her voice were uncanny!!!!!

And, of course, Amy Adams is just cute in everything she appears in. It's funny to see her attempting to cook all these dishes in a year and blog about it. And then be surprised when people start reading her blog! Things all bloggers can relate to.

Treat yourself to a matinee and go see this movie. I wouldn't call it a chick flick either so drag your hubby along. You'll love it!

And stay tuned because tomorrow I will be bringing you a double dose of creative fun - the Monday MyGrafico Challenge post and the 1st day of sneak peeks of the NEW stamp sets being released this week from Sherrod Studio - you won't want to miss out!!

Until then, have a creative day!
