 Seriously...it was the most fun I've had in a long time.
The theater was pretty full...just as I suspected it would be.
 When Danny turns to the camera, yeah, you know the scene, a couple of middle-aged ladies behind me could not refrain from making cat calls.
It was pretty hilarious.
 The first song was, you know it, Summer Lovin'.  The speakers in the theater make it sound like the entire audience is singing.  I was laughing, I was singing, then laughing, singing some more, then laughing.  I almost put myself into a cold sweat.  (Tula said I was actually sweating.  It was dark...how could she see that!)
I never got to see Grease on the big screen.
I was in third grade when it came out.
Too young, according to my mom. 
She was a good Mom.
My friends would listen to the soundtrack in the bathroom at recess.
OK, they weren't MY friends, but the cool girls who obviously got to see the trashy film.
But ever since we owned a VCR and the actual video, I have known this movie by heart. 
Or so I thought.
There were so many details and lines I had never noticed! 
So.  Much.  Better.  On. The.  Big.  Screen!
Everyone there was there because they love the movie.
So we laughed at every little inuendo, every silly dance move, every song!
(Remember when Danny tells Sandy, "Don't make me laugh...heh.....heh....heh..."?  CLASSIC.
The audienced roared.)

 I loved it.
I took all my girls.
(And I guess I'll take them again even though they insist I was the only one in the theater that sang along.)
I will make it a Summer tradition every year.
Hopelessly devoted to Grease!
(And I don't care who knows it.)

Who Deserves a New Dress?

I know it's hard for you to admit YOU need a new dress...
Because you probably think someone else does more than you.
Maybe your daughter, your sister, your mother.
You always put the needs of others before your own.
Today you can't.
Tell me something you enjoy about Motherhood or Aunthood or even babysitterhood...
(You don't have to be a "Mom" to enter)
A special lady will win a new dress!
This one.
It is from their Vintage Clothing line.
Just leave your comment and a winner will be announced Friday!
Happy Day.

Custom-Made Envelopes

Do you still make your own envelopes?

With my son living in another state and desperate for mail, I can't just send him regular, boring white envelopes with my letters. They need to announce to him, the mailman, and everyone else in a mile radius that his mom really cares about him.

And they look really cool.

Making these envelopes brings back so many memories from the "good ol' days" when we used to mail letters to our friends. I think it is a lost art and I want to bring it back.

I've made a little mini-tutorial with a template download on my Angela Henrie Studio blog. Go check it out. And make some envelopes with me, will ya?

You can totally send me one if you're willing, but without a recipient. I will be your recipient!

Have fun.

Wedding #2

Have you planned a wedding?

It is stressful. 
Especially if you are not naturally organized.

It's overwhelming.  There are a lot of details.

I can't even describe what a relief if is when it all comes together
And having special friends and family that help you pull it off is priceless.
(I think they had a system down... one would empty the bread bowl and the other would get rid of it without being wasteful.  Genius.)

(I love these girls.  They are the best sisters you could ask for!)

My girls!
They are a beautiful couple.  I am so excited to see them grow together and feel the joy of starting their own little family.
Because when I look at this picture of all of us, I think, "Man, I am rich!"

They're getting married.
