i had to make one more movie mention this month. i had to. i owe it to my twin sister. the parent trap is on today! this opening song is full of nostalgia for me.. it makes me homesick for my sisters. when we were little, this movie seemed magical. and it was one of our top 5 standards on the library vhs shelf. we used to watch miss hayley relentlessly. i'm guessing we still have most of the movie memorized, and can probably still do a decent rendition of let's get together.

{haley, remember the haircut scene? and the popsicle line? i don't know if i ever told you this, but in the back of my mind i always knew you were susan, and i was sharon. knowing us, you were probably thinking the same thing.}

my old favorite is showing at 4:45 this afternoon on tcm.
synchronize your dvrs, everyone.

meanwhile, i'm off to scrub saucepans and bake zucchini bread. i love starting the business of baking with clean counters and an empty sink. have i told you my idea to make tuesday 'baking day'? i am intent on it. today the sky is perfectly white and gloomy, and it's raining. i can't imagine a better place to be than in my kitchen.

I love the updates of the movies. I just programmed to record Little Women. The Parent Trap is one of my favorites and there's nothing like the original. Thanks for sharing.

ok...so random.

last night i dreamed that hollywood wanted to turn your blog into a reality show. you moved to l.a...and we were all watching your glam life on t.v.

maybe because i had just read your last post about the oscars right before bed?

so random.

summer, you are my go-to gal for good reason. thank you. i love love love this movie too. i even love the remade version. but there is nothing better than the haley mills one and that scissored frock. and the crossed arms, crossed fingers out the window. and the diagram of the house. cute, cute. can't wait.

thank you.

tuesday baking days sound wonderful. the granola bars are amazing! they're already gone--passed them out to everyone at work too : ) they are going to be so handy to grab-and-go on my way to class. thank you to you and your mother-in-law!

Yah,yah,yah,. Dammit just tried to find it, guess I don't get TMC. I'll still be singing the song and we'll still have a swinging time.
