This Weekend

I saw a movie that inspired me. Marie Antoinette was so breathtaking. If you didn't plan on seeing it - you should go see it just for the pure beauty.

It was almost too much to take in. I want to go see it again. Now if you are looking for some amazing story - don't. In truth I didn't feel like it was at all about the story.
Don't we know the story already? A young beautiful girl is married off to what will one day be the king of France - who spends almost no time sexing her up- she gets bored - spends money - gets even more beautiful - is hated on -spends some more money - is wonderfully misquoted -
has some kids because her husband finally does her - spends so more money and has a few memorible parties - then gets her head chopped off. I do think this was a wonderful look into what an amazing life she must have had. Amazing and terrible. What a beautiful cage she lived in.
Sofia Coppola's vision was amazing - the sets - the clothes - the everything, and Kirsten Dunst did a wonderful job.
Hubby did complain that several of the scenes were out of focus. However I felt they were supposed to be. For example, in one scene was when they were running through the field after a night of drinking and partying. I feel like keeping the scene blurred kept me in the moment. I mean how do you feel after a night like that? But the colors and the prints and all of the awesome little details won my heart.

Layouts - Well one because Blogger is being a butt

Where oh where have I been???

Hello all. I hate that I haven't had time to blog. But I really haven't. At my job I normally work an 8 and a half hour day. At least 2 hours of which were spent goofing off. But Joey's after school has been cancled and she can't start her new one until she turns 5. So now my day is cut short by about 3 hours. Which means not only was my goofing off time cut out, but I have one less hour to get my work done. No worries.... Joey turns 5 in like a week and a half. Right now I happen to have a spare second. So hi, hows it goin? *wink wink* So excited about being on The Village design team!!!! I love the place, and now my stuff is up in the store. We meet again this Sunday to turn in any extra stuff we have done. Which means I have work to do. I have already done some stuff, but I want to do more. More more more. Even though I only had one set of paper, I would like to do several layouts with it. I have some stuff to post in a little bit. I guess I'll do that during my lunchtime.
