Midnight Snack

A friend and I wanted to have a movie marathon.
But not a traditional movie marathon.
No Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings, or Star Wars, or whatever other movie series' there are.
We planned to watch movies that had the same actress in each movie.
We decided on Audrey Hepburn.

When the night actually came, our 'marathon' was only two movies long. We watched Breakfast at Tiffany's and My Fair Lady.

Between movies we took a picnic break.
We closed the sliding door behind us a few minutes before midnight.
We walked barefoot through the wet, wet, wet grass and laid the white sheets in the middle of the yard.
We ate pre-sliced peaches and blueberries under the stars.
The air was chilly, I was glad for my sweatpants.
I wished for a hoodie.
We tried to find constellations, but the Star-Finder was lost, and neither of us know our stars very well.
We talked about traveling to Europe.
The mosquitoes decided to have a picnic, too.
We picked up the blankets and went back outside, ending our picnic, and the mosquito's picnic, too.

I watched Sabrina the night before last. Have you seen Funny Face and Roman Holiday?

Marie DeVries said...

:) thanks Robbie

I saw funny face at cousin camp, and I have not seen Roman Holiday. Do you suggest it?

Roman Holiday is absolutely one of her best! Also, if you haven't seen Charade, it's great too. It has Cary Grant and has a very Hitchcock feel to it.

Thanks for commenting, Mrs. N! I'll have to look into renting them soon :)

how was Breakfast at Tiffany's? I love Audrey Hepburn, but have yet to see that one. Love Charade. :)
