Gnomeo...Oh, Gnomeo!

A cute movie based on Romeo and Juliet with a twist. I never knew gnomes basically were red or blue. But, if you think of it --- they are! And then I realized we were a 'red' family.

The story is set in England where we have a man and woman living in a duplex. His side is red and hers is blue. Their gardens are the most kitchy gardens I have ever seen. The blue garden had a Wisteria tree growing from the tank of a toilet. Hmmm...

Oh course we have a family feud and the reds hate the blues. And the youngsters fall in love. Difficulties in their love abound until their near death. Enter the Terafirminator! This item was cool enough to make DH want one!

I thought the best part of the movie was --- sitting in the dark holding my husband's hand. I would have rather rented it and saved the $30. Oh well, it was a romantic (kiddish) movie and just after Valentine's Day.

Today, I went to DD's and help rearrange her apartment. I like it and it's clean! Talked to her boyfriend and he even liked it. So we're good.

Gotta go make a 'wish list' for tomorrow!

Your new blog background and font look great, Denise!! So spring-like and clean...

I always feel that way about movies, too... I'd rather spend the money on something else and just rented it. But, it is fun to see things on the big screen every now and then...

I like helping my daughter clean, too. I think I'd like to believe that she can't live without me and cleaning reinforces that belief. ;)
