Movie Swap

I don't think I ever told y'all about this movie swap I was in. We had to buy a movie along with some of our favorite treats to send to our partner. I chose to send my partner The Last of the Mohicans. It is one of my favorite movies and probably not one I would have ever watched on my own had my English teacher in high school not showed it to us. I so thought I was gonna marry Daniel Day-Lewis. Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Antonio Banderas also!! I also sent my partner Twizzlers-a favorite in our house!!, peanut M&M's, and Orville Redenbacher's Simply Salted Natural popcorn, all in an aqua enamel bowl. The bowl is perfect for a bag of popcorn with peanut M&M's mixed in-yummy!! I would highly recommend watching The Last of the Mohicans if you haven't already seen it.


Here is the package all wrapped up and ready to go. I just love making gifts look special!!

I somehow neglected to take a photo of what I received from my partner. Bad, I know...Anyway, she did good. I got a triple play movie-One Fine Day, The Truth About Cats & Dogs, and A Walk in the Clouds(thought I was gonna marry Keanu Reeves, too!!) Chick flicks at their best!! Also, she sent me some popcorn, Jelly Belly jelly beans, jelly beans coated in Nerds, and peanut butter M&M's-my kids helped me eat the candy, of course!! My partner also sent me a mixed cd of her favorite movie tunes. She was so creative in her gift and I really appreciate it!!

What is your favorite movie?? Can't wait to see the answers...

Loved watching that movie also. How neat to do a movie swap. That would be a neat swap to do for the holidays...movie swap of a family christmas show. I am new over here and just tried my hand at doing a Christmas Card Swap. Something better than getting bills at the holidays..hehehe...so only one has signed up so far..maybe sooner or later I will get a few more. Geeze sorry I got off your blog subject. Anyway I love the movie swap. If you do one later on I would love to join in on this fun.
Have a great week! I had to add you to my list. Boy that list is growing by the mile...but I love it!

What a great idea with the movie swap! I have several favorite movies...to name a few Some Kind of Wonderful (thought I was going to marry Eric Stoltz-I married a guy that kind of looks like him though. :)), Sliding Doors, Picture Perfect and my absolute favorite is National Lampoons Vacation. I have it memorized. :)

I am behind on my reading as you know...so sorry to hear about your dad. Please keep us posted on how he is doing. I hope he gets through this bump in the road as smooth as a person possibly can. And so sorry to hear about the house. It was such a lovely house and I was picturing all your decor in it and everything. I guess things happen for a reason. With this financial crisis, I just don't know what's going to happen. I just hope no jobs are lost out of this, so people can't pay for their homes...including us. :( It's just so sad.

There are a few movies that I cannot pass up if I am channel surfing (even though I have these movies without commercials) Pride and Prejudice, field of dreams, Shawshank Redemption, You've Got Mail, & Sense and Sensibilty are a few I could watch over and over again. I do love movies!
