The Longest Ride
Starring: Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson
I will read and I will watch anything that has Nicholas Sparks’ name attached to it. I’m not ashamed. I concede that he’s working hard to recreate the MAGIC known as The Notebook. I admit that he has not even come close in the last decade. I also understand that diving into a Sparks book means that I have to prepare myself for one of the main characters to die. Also, an old person will impart wisdom, our leading characters will have some sort of revelation in the rain, and only ridiculously hot individuals are considered for the movie adaptation. Bring it on.
The Longest Ride was a decent film. I kept my expectations low as I drove my way to the movie theater. In fact, my friend Emily and I asked for tickets to see “The Last Ride” before I doubted even further wondering if it was “The Lucky Ride?” The sweet box office girl used context clues to secure the correct tickets, and we were on our way.

Some say that I have an obsession with making mixed tapes. I prefer to think of it as a spiritual gift. And because I am so dedicated to stretching said gift, I’ve started a monthly post which I call “Soundtrack of My Life.”
If you missed my inaugural post, you can read it HERE.
My second post was about Texas music.
If you have a playlist idea, please send it my way. Compiling a list of songs to fit a certain criteria fills my soul. That’s not weird. It’s endearing. It would be an honor to make the soundtrack of your road trip, a baby shower or your pending surgery.
What? You don’t have an anesthesia playlist? That’s weird.
While you figure out if I’m one card short of a full deck, take a look at my latest, greatest, favorites. Enjoy!
The movie Pretty Woman is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary this year. First of all, where did the time go? Second of all, Lord help me slow it down.
I was way too young to see this delightful movie debut on the big screen, but I did fall in love with it a few years later. It never occurred to me to feel weird about Vivian’s occupation. I can overlook tons of details when I’m watching a movie through my rose-colored LOVE STORY glasses! I just want the guy to get the girl so they can live happily ever after. Is that a crime?
Some people would say yes. These are the same people who remind me that Allie cheated on Lon with Noah Calhoun. It’s very hard to form an argument around this rather large detail.
Since Pretty Woman taught me a plethora of life lessons, I thought I would share my list with you. Here’s to 25 years of saying “slippery little suckers” whenever the occasion arises! Enjoy!
Remember how once upon a time I made a vow to learn a new skill every year? It all started with balloon twisting. You can read about my penis swords HERE and HERE and the time I made balloon dogs for the children of Rwanda HERE.
Then there was the time I decided to learn the ukulele. You can read about that adventure HERE. I think it’s important to disclose that I have yet to master “Hula Hana.” That song is HARD. With that said, if you need someone to strum out “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad” or “Happy Birthday,” I am definitely your girl.
