When I am in the mood for a classic movie, I usually watch one from the 30′s or 40′s but I couldn’t resist watching this 1958 movie Nowhere to Go because I wanted to see this awesome actress when she was only 24. Recognize her?? It is none other than Maggie Smith, aka The Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey.

Speaking of classics, Brian just picked up the newly released collection of The Clash called Hits Back. I borrowed it and downloaded it to my ipod. Tomorrow when I take my morning walk I’ll be rocking the Casbah.

I love washi tape (which is basically a decorative craft tape that can be removed easily). It is an easy way to decorate and add color to a number of things. (Oh and the photo is from the Planner Addicts Photo Challenge because I’m nerdy like that.)

With the kids in school, Matthew and I have a lot more time together. This morning I was upset because the strap on his car seat was broken and I was having a hard time fixing it. Seeing my frustration he patted me on the hand and said, “Don’t worry, Mama.” I looked up at his cute face and kissable cheeks and melted. I kissed him then snapped a photo to savor the moment.

What We’re Reading Wednesday:
21 Days to a More Disciplined Life
I first heard about 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life by Crystal Paine from Jen at Suscipio’s. She is doing a book discussion and it just started on Monday. If there was anyone that could use some more discipline in their life, it’s me!! So I downloaded the book (it was only $4.99) and joined the online group study. So far I love it! Usually, I try some kind of “resolution” and either lose interest or burn out but the book is set up so you work on one project for only 10 – 15 minutes a day and it slowly helps you to build a positive habit and grow more disciplined. It is short and concise and effective. I highly recommend it. You can read more about it on my post about Day 1 of the program – here.
Okay, it is officially Wednesday, which means Ive got to get to bed pronto. Have a great day!
