~Birth Of A Movie Week-end



For those of you that are new to my blog let me take a minute to explain the movie themed week-ends. When I was younger my parents got a divorce. My Mother & I found ourselves with little money while she tried to get herself back on her feet. Having been a child from a poor family she knew how to make an event out of the smallest thing. Break out the good china even if all you are eating is pizza. Sip Pepsi from a crystal goblets. What ever comes to mind. For us we would rent a movie & make something yummy to go with it. Changing the names to go with our crazy themes. So now you know. Enjoy!

My Parents are divorced too. Mom raised 3 kids by herself in Paris in a shoe box apartment. We were extremely poor too. The week end movie is a great idea. with a little treat and something to celebrate even better. XOXO You go girl!
