Besides puttering around my house, I've been watching "summer" movies. If I can't actually enjoy the sunshine, at least I can watch it on TV. I am a major nostalgic type movie watcher. What I mean is that I love to watch movies that remind me of my childhood or take me to places of long ago....aka...old movies. Or, old-er movies. Here is a list of some of my top summer movies. If you get a chance, check out a few. I'm sure you'll love them!
Shag - The Movie
When I was in high school, my best friend and I would watch this movie every weekend. We'd enjoy it with snacks, subs and always orange pop. In fact, when I moved away to college, she gave me the VHS copy of it that we always watched. I've since purchased the DVD. This movie is about four girls who go on a summer vacation to the Carolina's. Each girl is sooo different and the movie takes you through their adventures. Total summer flick!! Part of the movie centers around a shag dance contest that takes place. One of my all time favorite movies. (And despite the b&w photo, the movie is in color.)
My all time #1 favorite movie. Can't get enough of it! How can you not have a summer movie list without this flick? Gotta love the dance moves, the love story, and the great music. I have the soundtrack on my ipod. Just can't get enough of it!
The Parent Trap - The Original
This movie is so darn cute. I'm such a sucker for that old time summer camp experience. When I was little, I went away for a week to summer camp. Loved every bit of it. I especially liked how my mom tucked away a little gift for each day that I was away. I still have one of them! (It's a little book marker card that has a bear on it that says something about how all things are bearable with Jesus. Summer of '93.)
On Golden Pond
Another one of my favorites. "Norman, you old poop!" I remember watching this movie a few times with my dad. Again, another one of those movies that is nostalgic. I love to watch it and look at the rustic cabin the old couple lives in. I also fell in love with the sound of loons watching this movie. This one may tug at your heart. It does mine!
Ok, this one may not totally scream summer...but it all does take place in the summer. I love to watch this movie. I absolutely love the "bazaar" scene - especially when Pollyanna eats that giant piece of cake. Yumm! This is such a feel good movie.
And because you stuck through, here is a coupon for Old Navy, GAP and Banana Republic. They are having a 30% off sale - this includes clearance merch. The sale starts today and runs to August 2nd.

I'm coming back sooooon with the next installment of the kitchen organization series. I just haven't been home much due to this hot water tank breakdown. Thanks for being so patient with my sporadicness. Love you all!!
