This is the outfit Shaye was wearing the other day...

So when she asked me to put her hair in a ponytail for her, I said, "Sure, I can do a side pony so you'll look totally 80's".  She looked at me with utter "UCK" on her face and said...

"The 80's ?!??   I want to look like I'm from this century."

Apparently, being born in this century,

she misses the reference her clothes are making.

Anyone else feel  "totally, like, old?!??"


I get all of the comments left on my 3 ladies' blogs sent to my email- so I can moniter, ya know?

A while back,  Brielle wrote a post about helping Shaye do her Brownie Quest. 

The other day, this showed up in my inbox...

SHAYE has left a new comment on your post "Me & A Brownie":

Thanks for helping me with this quest. By the way you spelt quest wrong.

Yes, she is for real. She often corrects me and Gianna too. In fact, Gianna no longer lets Shaye reads her papers before she turns them in because one time she found a typo that John and I had both missed and Gianna had to fix it and reprint the page.

reminded me of this post:

 and because I love need  to laugh daily,

I am going with that theme for my first

Movie Monday @ Messy Mommy

movies that make me laugh-
no matter how many times I watch them

(and I watch these a LOT!)

in no particular order...

Mr. & Mrs. Smith (are my husband and I the only two people on the planet who can quote this movie word for word?) Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation (a CLASSIC!)  Euro Trip (HERE's a FUN FACT...  not for kids or the faint of heart/those easily offended THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE SEEN THIS MOVIE TOTALLY GOT THE OPENING REFERENCE.)  This movie made four grownups CRY we were laughing so hard!) Armaggedon (genius wit but just as sad.  I am either laughing or crying hysterically through this whole movie- John even cries.)  Speaking of Bruce Willis...  The Last Boy Scout (I am a HUGE fan of clever one liners and this movie is built on them!)  The Cutting Edge (toe pick.  'nough said.)  What Happens In Vegas (it took me a while to get around to finally seeing this one, but i LOVE it.  watch it whenever it's on.  it's a modern mix of funny and sweet.)  And added to this list after seeing it for the first, and second, time this weekend...  Old Dogs  (Laughed so much, and so loud,  the first time we watched it, we had to watch it again.  Plus, it was nice to get to see Bernie Mac one last time.) 


what's making you laugh today?

I think the movie is called "High Fidelity" with Jon Cusack and also "Broadcast news" with Holly Hunter-guaranteed mood boosters for me

The Starr Family said...

Love your daughters individuality... though I'd prefer never to see 80's outrageousness again. I'm certain I just spelled outrageousness wrong. Perhaps its not an actual word?

Speaking of outrageouness, Waking Ned Divine or Zoolander just do it for me.

Shell said...

Love her 80s look!

And great movie choices!

gina said...

When referring to the 80's - outrageousness is most definitely a word!

I've never seen High Fidelity and I've never heard of Broadcast News- I'm going to have to check them both out!!

My kids watched, "Imagine That" over the weekend (Eddie Murphy), and said it was a really funny. Too bad they had already put it in the Netflix envelope and sealed it up, otherwise I would have watched it too.

Well now you are, lol. I am totally with you, apparently the 80's are to them what the 40's were to us....and I KNOW I am not that old yet so what gives? Yet, they want to bring back our music and styles. Bring me back zipper jeans (remember by the ankle?) or tightrolled jeans with two scrunch socks on, and a great pair of stirrup pants with an oversized sweatshirt. Now THAT was comfy!

Krystyn said...

This century. Man, that would make anybody feel old, right?

My kids make me laugh...just by laughing these days!

Tammy said...
