Mona Lisa Smile

The theme for Tuesday Couch Potatoes this week is Julia Roberts movie. I love this actress! She is one of my all-time favorite stars. But guess what -- except for Charlotte's Web in which she voice acted, I don't have any of her films in my DVD collection.

My favorites are Pretty Woman, and Notting Hill. She was her feisty best in Erin Brockovich. I remember ogling at her shoes in The Mexican. I watched Dying Young when I was in college and made sure I had the piano sheet of the soundtrack. JR exercised patience of a woman in love in Stepmom. I had no idea she voice acted in The Ant Bully. I can't remember details of My Best Friend's Wedding and not sure if I have seen Sleeping with the Enemy. I had easy access to The Pelican Brief, America's Sweethearts, Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve but had never gotten the time to watch them. I'm curious about Charlie Wilson's War, and putting Conspiracy Theory, and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind in my to-watch list. Soon I hope to watch Eat, Pray, Love. (image)

Now where is that entry of mine.... It's one of my favoritest of all Julia Roberts movies: Mona Lisa Smile - "a funny, inspiring and uplifting film about an art history professor with a lot to teach about life and much to learn about romance." (source)

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor

Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.





My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:



Head over to Just About Anything for more wedding movies.

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:



1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.

2. One of my favorite colors is purple.

3. I don't mind spending sunrise or sunset in book and antique stores.

4. Nowadays I dine out more than I dine in, and I'm enjoying it because I'm lazy with dirty dishes.

5. I consider a year not very exciting if I didn't get my butt on a jet.

6. My favorite female author is Jane Austen.

7. I think helicopter pilots and nuclear engineers are sexy.



The following awards are also passed on to me by Thom:
