A simple, (extraordinary) kinda day

"If you're a bird, I'm a bird"

Do I have any kindred spirits out there that happen to maybe know what movie this line is from? It is one of my favorite movies ever.....Anyone? Anyone?!

OK, I'll give you a hint!! The movie is based on a book, the author of said book is from NC, and the setting of the book is on the coast of NC. So, of course I love it!

Who doesn't love Noah & Allie?

The Notebook

So, today is the last full day before the kids come home for Christmas vacation...and while I am oh-so excited that the crazy kids and I will have two weeks of insane down-time together, I am also treasuring my last day of quiet, alone time. Ahhhh!

This would be my idea of a perfect day...

But since I can't do this today...Instead, to make the most of my last day of solitude I decided to watch The Notebook this morning, and drink a nice cup of coffee as I mentally check off my Christmas list and decide what absolutely must be done today before the kids are home.  A perfect, simple day.

My favorite quote from the movie. <3

So, after I watch the movie:

1.  I will make one last trek to the evil place called Walmart

2.  Make another sneaky trip up into the attic without (re)breaking my toe

3.  Hit the grocery store (before everyone else and their mother will be there) later this weekend

4.  Remember to keep it simple, SIMPLE, simple as I am out and about amidst the chaos

5.  Avoid getting consumed with road rage when competing for parking spaces (did I just admit that?)

6.  Remember what Christmas is all about...

A simple movie about a simple (extraordinary) kinda love, a simple day getting ready for a simple (extraordinary) kinda Christmas.
