I've been waiting all summer to go see North by Northwest
in the park tonight,
mainly because 1. It's an Alfred Hitchcock film,
2. The leading role? Cary Grant.
And 3. There's always a sense of perfection that comes while watching a movie
underneath the stars in the summertime.
Has anyone else seen it?
I've heard several mixed reviews,
but lets be honest -
any opportunity to watch Cary Grant for 90 minutes isn't something to be missed.
(just an afterthought: longest. movie. ever. made.)
-my dear friend was married on saturday morning, and even though i wasn't able to attend her reception, i got to see a part of her wedding video last night and i just. about. died. it was so darling in every way, and it reminded me of another favorite wedding video i found online a few weeks ago, which i can't help but share. i fall in love with love every time i watch it.
- speaking of love, my boyfriend justin bieberfinally came to town, and this 16 year old kid even made my knees go weak. although i am partially deaf after sitting in a stadium for 3 1/2 hours with 10,000 screaming girls, who somehow found it possible to literally scream after every dance move, song, and smile he made, i have to admit... i found myself one of them several times.
- and since this seems to be all about love today, i might as well include the latest and greatest love of mine: flour girls & dough boys, which is probably the cutest place in af to go get lunch. last summer, i remember making two stops there in one day because i think they probably have the best plain turkey and cheese sandwiches in the entire world... so my advice to all of you? go go go go go.
waving flags at the parade, playing with sparklers in a tree house, staying up too late (too many times) and not regretting it the next morning - everything about our little vacation (which came to a grand total of costing $27) was exquisite, and i think it's safe to say that this past weekend could definitely be defined as perfect in every way.
with that being said, my favorite part of the whole trip had to be playing at pineview lake. we stumbled onto this little area by accident, and i'd rank it high up on the list of one of the most magical places i've ever seen: the tree house, the rope swing, the sunshine - definitely worth living over (and over and over and over) again when my time machine is up and running.
