The Help and Drinks

Is anyone else obsessed with the movie "The Help"? I have probably watched this movie 50 times or maybe more. Friday night The Hubs was playing golf. I was sitting around enjoying my wine and decided to watch my favorite movie again. The Hubs has just started to laugh at me and can even quote the movie.. LOL! I love the fashion, the decorating, and houses in that movie. I think I'm so obsessed because Elizabeth's house reminds me sooo much of my god-grandparents house. It's kinda scary how much they are alike. The fashion back then and my goodness those hairstyles! I also love looking at the decor- paintings, furniture, bookshelving, I love it all. It's a beautiful movie with meaning but I barely listen because I'm too busy staring at what else I can see this time that I haven't eyed before.

I'm debating on reading the book soon. I've been slack on my reading but think that since I love the movie so much the book will be good too. Anyone read the book? Thoughts?

A neighbor introduced me to Hummin' Bird HeLLes by Red Oak. Let me just say- I'm hooked! I was beyond excited to find this at Harris Teeter yesterday. Needless to say I had a beer last night after my walk. I'm also a little obsessed because it's pure meaning zero perservatives or chemicals. I was shocked to read all the additives that only the US allows in food/beer. If you like light ctirusy beer, give this one a try!

As I was walking yesterday I looked at my flowers. I'm still in shock that these haven't died yet. I seriously don't have a green thumb. Some of the reds ones have struggled but the purple petunias have done wonderfully. Thanks for the suggestions on my trail gardener post, I have some ideas of what to try next year. Excuse the mess below, the Hubs was edging.

What's your favorite movie? What's your favorite after work drink?
