grumpy old men (1993).
this holiday comedy stars two comedy legends who may be the funniest duo who were ever put together.
jack lemmon as john gustafson and walter matthau as max goldman are the perfect pairing for comedic gold. these two grumpy old men are best friends who both hate and love each other and aren’t afraid of letting the other one know it.
john and max have been feuding for years often calling each other rude names and playing practical jokes. this war between the two sides comes to blows when both men compete for the attention of ariel (ann-margret) the new neighbor. of course the feuding eventually ends and max and john put their differences behind them, but not before we are treated to a great performance of acting.
this film is one of my all time favorites and i can never go more than a year without watching it. please go out and find a copy, they are everywhere and treat yourself tonight. make sure to watch the bloopers at the end, burgess meredith (who plays jack’s father) is hilarious and has several scenes where he dirty old man persona always leaves me in tears of laughter.
p.s. the big reveal will happen tomorrow! get ready, friends!
we needed a dining room table. we also needed a bigger workspace. this was the end result.
our inspiration came from this lovely blog.
2 more days, friends!
diy number seventeen.
window box vase.
this diy is another inspiration from the always trendy urban outfitters.
it is a fairly straight-forward project. what you need is:
3. a saw
4. small vases
5. stain (optional)
we chose not to stain our window box, only because most of the wood found around our home is natural or reclaimed. almost any color would look fantastic, though!
additionally, we wanted ours to look as imperfect as possible. in the end, if you are achieving for imperfection, this is a foolproof diy project.
only 3 more days until our surprise is revealed … :-D

back to the future (1985).
this film (and the two that follow) are my favorite films of all time.
michael j fox will forever be remembered as marty mcfly and christopher lloyd as dr. emmett brown in this sci-fi drama. directed by robert zemeckis (cast away, forest gump, who framed roger rabbit, contact) and produced by none other than steven spielberg (too many to mention), this film cannot miss.
the genre of time travel has been since way overdone in film and none have delivered such comedic and dramatic genius as back to the future. this film was so powerful and influential it made the dmc delorean one of the most iconic automobiles of all time (nike paid homage with a shoe even), coined the phrase “jigawatts” (while standard pronunciation is with a hard “g” as in “given” and “gold” and nike actually produced the shoes worn by marty in the sequel. these shoes, in turn, were auctioned off for hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity.
the film also has many cameos including deborah harmon, huey lewis, and walter scott. the blend of comedy, sci-fi and drama with stunning performances made this ’85 film a huge hit establishing is as one of the greatest films of all time.
please go watch it again, and relive the pas … of the future … in the present … hmmm, this is getting heavy.
