movie night with friends.....
I would never have chosen Austenland, but so glad we watched it. It is so funny!!!
I don't think I have never read anything by Jane Austen (I know-gasp!), and I haven't even seen Pride & Prejudice, so I wasn't sure I'd like this movie, but I loved it!!
Austenland is a modern day spoof-type movie, but it made me want to read something by Austen, or at least watch the movies....I plan to take care of that soon!
Who is this Mr. Darcy everyone is talking about? :O)
A snow day!
...and in lieu of our morning phone call, Mom and I had tea!
I have been wanting to try scones and found several recipes on Pinterest that look yummy!
Raspberry Almond Scones
Glazed Orange Scones
Devonshire Cream Scones for an Authentic Cream Tea
Then, I got sidetracked and pinned lots of tea related stuff....
the cutest "Alice In Wnderland" tea pot!
a pink & gold tea cup <3
and this one!
Guess who's having tea instead of Diet Coke this morning?
Even though I had heard rave reviews about Downton Abbey, it just didn't interest me. I've watched the occasional period piece, but it was never my first choice. I was looking for a series to watch this winter, so I went with DA. I borrowed the first few seasons from Wanda and started it last night. Guess who sat up wayyyyy too late last night finishing the entire first season?????
Why did I wait so long to watch????
Think of all the good things we miss out on when we won't try something new.
Wanda and I talk every January about getting together more during the year, and trying more, new, fun things! Of course, watching a movie isn't anything new, and neither is having tea or watching the seasons of a tv show, but all three of these were things I wouldn't normally choose. It made me realize how much I miss out on because I don't want to try new things. I almost always choose what is comfortable- it's time to step out of the box! :O)
While browsing through the tea related stuff on Pinterest, I came across something that might be our next fun get together!! :O) (And I know the perfect hostess!)
I'm looking forward to trying lots of new things in 2015!! Just think of all we miss out on if we don't!
