Life Among the BOXES!!

I would just like to say a quick THANK YOU to everyone who commented on my last post about letting people know about your blog. It was a huge encouragment and I feel a lot better about my decision to keep my blog private from my family. I love having all of you to turn to for advice and like having you all to myself! : >
I've made the decision to start another blog for my family and friends because I'd really like to share out day in day out adventures with our families especially since hubby's are all in Scotland. I would be a nice way for them to feel connected to us and keep up with what's going on in our lives.
Okay on to the post........
These boxes are covering every inch of our loft right now! It's so weird having all of our stuff packed up in boxes since we've lived here for the past 5 years. We close tomorrow and I'm praying that everything goes off without a hitch! I can't wait to be in the house and get everything organized.
We did a lot of packing yesterday and guess what I woke up to this morning???? A thrown out back! Of course! So I have a bag of ice on my back as I'm writing this and I'm getting ready to take a super hot shower to try to loosen the muscles up....ugh, I mean worst possible time ever to throw out your back! Good thing we've got movers coming on Tuesday!
And when did Fall arrive!??!?!? I feel like I've been in another world and last night as I drove to the store to get dinner (since we have nothing in the house because it's all packed up) I saw halloween decorations everywhere, it's only a month away!!!
This is my favorite time of year and I wanted to share my all time FAVORITE fall movies and halloween movies with you!!

First up my all time favorite movie is You've Got Mail, it just makes me happy and I love everything about it, especially how it opens in the Fall with pumpkins and fall leaves!

Next is Runaway Bride another fall favorite, the scenery in this movie is just gorgeous and the little town that Julie Roberts character is from is so quaint and beautiful! It really gets me in the fall mood!

This is my all time favorite Halloween movie!!! I actually went to see this movie for my 12th birthday and I've been in love with it ever since. Love it, Love it, love it!!
Love the witch's cottage in the movie!Another fave is practical magic!! I could just watch this movie for the house and the way it's decorated!! Love it!!

How beautiful is this house?!
And the inside I just love!!

What Lies Beneath is a great thriller!! Love Michelle Pfeiffer and Harrison Ford in this, it's a great movie to watch late at night!!!

Love Sleepy Hollow, it's such a great rainy day movie to watch!!!

So I NEED to know what are your favorite Fall movies and Halloween movies of all time!!???


  1. I love the movies you picked out!!!! I love fall/Halloween too, my little one won't let me dress up with her anymore..= ( I totally keep my blog a secret from everyone...and my hubs has a bigger mouth than me so I didn't even tell him! {haha} Hope your having a great weekend! = )

  2. you have two of my favs on your list...Practical Magic and You've Got them!

  3. If you start a new blog but want to keep this blog private from your family you'll have to make a totally new blog/profile because they'll be able to see the link to this blog if they visit your profile page.

  4. I love You've Got Mail- a bouquet of sharpen pencils!

  5. I love Hocus Pocus! It is my favorite Halloween movie. Make sure you watch ABC Family. They do a Nights of Halloween and show some really great movies.

  6. hi,
    i have seen some of the movies in which u have listed,it will nice.

  7. hi,
    Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship.
    To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

    I have added you to my blogroll, hope you can do the same thing for me so that we can have constant communication.

  8. I love You've Got Mail too!! It is such a happy movie and always gets me in a fall/wintery mood! I LOVE it!!! Meg Ryan is adorable with her hair like this!!

  9. I've been meaning to comment forever, but you know how life can be!

    I really liked your choices of Fall movies-mostly because I love most of them as well. Southern minds think alike perhaps?

    "What Lies Beneath" is definitely a great chiller. I've enjoyed it since it came out years ago. Thanks for reminding me to pull it out this weekend!

    By the by, congratulations on moving into your new home. Many blessings on your new homestead, and for the memories to be made there.

  10. I love the movies you picked out. My fav movie that my sister and I watched OVER and OVER was Hocus Pocus..super cute movie!

  11. haha I agree--Hocus Pocus is an awesome movie :) I don't think I'll ever get too old to watch it!
