Sup y'all. I wish I could get away with saying 'Y'all' like it was ever a part of my daily vocabulary. I did spend some time in Virginia at a Young Life camp two summers in a row, but that hardly counts and was barely a month at a time. Whatever. Chanelle says it a lot, I'll just blame it on the fact that I'm picking up the lingo. Yeah.
Anyway, what have I been up to lately? Working. Ew. A blog post to come on that later....also, I recently played an intense game of monopoly with my sister Rebecca (who has a travel blog coming out soon--stay tuned!!!) and my grandmom. AND I COMPLETELY PWNED THEM. I felt a little bad about it, because it's my grandmom and all, but still....isn't monopoly such a good illustration of real life? The richer get richer and the poor stay poor. Yikes. Anyway, if it hadn't been for me landing on Free Parking FIVE TIMES!! then I probs wouldn't have won. It's okay though because I did and let's be honest, winning monopoly is such a good feeling.
GUYS. I have a confession. I am in love with singing boys in historical clothing. (if you need explanation on my historical obsession as a child you can go here) I know, it's wrong, but I can't help it. I blame it on the topic of this blog today:
And Spot may look like a little frog, but my inner fangirl swoons with nostalgic delight.
I think I'm also feeling nostalgic for a movie that played such a key role in my adolescence because they're making a Broadway musical of it soon and you best believe I'ma see that.
Whenever I think about listening to a song from the soundtrack, or I have a fever and need to watch something that warms my heart and put the DVD in, it feels like I'm smiling back on an old friend. It's nice. It makes me sentimental, kind of embarrassed, and makes me laugh.
What are some of your favorite childhood movies? Long live awkward singing teens with cool clothes and terrible New York accents!!! Huzzah!
