favorite movies from 2011

Since my kids have all been home on winter break we've been doing a little bit of cleaning the house and I've found all kinds of scraps of paper in my kids rooms and notebooks upon notebooks of lists, mostly written by my oldest. She gets it from me, I guess.  I like writing lists too. One of my favorite lists to keep is my list of favorite movies of the year. Later I'm going to let my girls share their lists of their favorite books that they've read this year.

I just watched The Help the other night and loved it. I had read the book and am usually skeptical about the movie, but it did not disappoint. We also love Pirates of the Caribbean 4, Cars 2, Kung Fu Panda 2. My daughter loved Monte Carlo - it was a sweet movie.

As you can guess, I don't get to see many "grown up" movies, but I enjoyed Unstoppable. And we went to see the new Footloose at the theater and I loved it!

We're planning to rent Mr. Popper's Penguins soon.

Christmas Lodge is a good family movie also.

wow, this seems like a lot of movies! I have seen a few of them, but I think I'll bookmark this list and share it with hubs. I'm home this week recovering from tonsillectomy, so I may catch up on quite a few movies if I'm luckY!

I'm glad I'm not the only person who enjoyed "Limitless," "Source Code" and "The Switch." I haven't heard anyone else ever talk about them!

One I watched recently with my husband that was surprisingly OK was "Drive Angry." It's not what you think it is.

I am super picky about movies... I an also super lucky because the hubs likes chick flicks, lol.

First of all - thank you for a great blog and beautiful pictures!

I have a question - not related to this post, but a general one. What are the fonts that you have used in your blogger header, especially the one that you used to write the text "my life in mostly"? It's really beautiful, I'd like to look for it if I only knew the name...

Thank you and happy New Year! :-)

So many of these movies are on my netflix queue just waiting to be watched. Just watched Crazy Stupid Love last week.. and loved it.. best romcom of 2011 hands down. But my best movie of the year goes to the last installment of Harry Potter.. a series that will be truly missed. I am waiting for my boy to be old enough to relive with him.

Ansku - I tried to reply to you via email but could not find your contact information anywhere. The font I used is a free scrapbooking font called Susies Hand from Kevin & Amanda
