  1. Meet Me in St. Louis has a pretty long Halloween scene, and the rest of the movie is good, too!
  2. My girls and I saw it last night. It was exactly what we wanted it to be, and we loved it. It was so nice to visit Downton again!
  3. Yes to the bolded!!! I think it should be all about the moms who are in the trenches...especially with littles. I know that for me, that will mean that Mother's Day will never really be about me, because at this point, my youngest is seven, and not really little, but going forward, I want to make sure the younger generation, when they have small children, are recognized. I have had too many people in my life tell me that I should be honoring the older generation, and I don't want to do that to the young women in my life.
  4. My family loves The Pioneer Woman's brisket recipe.
  5. You could also go to Beast Craft BBQ in Belleville, which is on the Illinois side of the Mississippi. Best BBQ I've ever had. Seriously amazing.
  6. If you go, I recommend the fall. In addition to all the history, there's a whole bunch of wildlife to be found. We followed some deer around one year, and a flock of turkeys another. It was so cool!
  7. Cahokia Mounds is AMAZING!!! The sense of history there is overwhelming, especially for someone who has lived in various parts of the midwest her entire life, and doesn't get to see the "old" things in the US that most people talk about. I've lived in St. Louis for almost two decades, and I've still never been to the City Museum. I know it's supposed to be awesome, but I think it would be overwhelming for me. The new museum at the Arch is pretty cool, and the view from the top is great. Plus, the Old Courthouse (known for the Dred Scott case), and the Old Cathedral are both right there, if you want to visit them, too. And the mosaic collection in the Cathedral Basilica is outstanding. Oh, and I think you mentioned an interest in theater? The Missouri History Museum has a special exhibit about the Muny, the outdoor theater in St. Louis, that's fantastic. It's only open through early June, though. And I could recommend all kinds of good restaurants if you do decide to stop in the city and want to grab a bite to eat. 🙂
  8. I take my actual camera with me when it's convenient, because I think it does take better pictures. But when it's not (when we visited Universal Orlando last summer, for example), my phone does just fine. Seriously, it really does take excellent just doesn't have all of the settings I prefer. But it's so much easier to carry, and sometimes, that's really important!
  9. I loved the movie. I really wan't expecting it to have an emotional impact on me, but I was sobbing by the end. I liked it so much, I'd actually like to go back and see it again in the theater, which is something I never, ever do, even for my favorites. There was just so much to think about, and all of the callbacks to previous movies were outstanding!
  10. My husband shared a fan theory he found with me (please don't hate me...I don't normally do fan theories, but I really like this one!) that the husband Peggy had *was* Cap and those were their kids all along. Stay with me here. They have always been really vague about her family. She mentions in the Smithsonian video that when Steve liberated the prison, her husband was one of the men he released. But...if she knew that Cap time traveled to be with her, maybe she was being intentionally misleading, and knew exactly what she was saying. And when we see her in the present day, she's suffering from dementia, so you can't depend on anything she says to be accurate. Plus, I think the picture of her children has no father in it. So...maybe she was helping him disappear and cover up the time travel the whole time, but it all happened exactly the way it was supposed to. I know, it's a stretch, but if they ret-conned that into the actual story, I wouldn't be upset about it. 🙂
  11. Lima beans. I have always hated them. And sometimes, we had them on Christmas, and I wasn't allowed to leave the table until I ate them. On CHRISTMAS, for cryin' out loud! I will never make them. I will never eat them. And I certainly will never make my children eat them! OK, I'm better now. 😉
  12. I'm trying a new recipe for a lemon cheesecake with a rosemary shortbread crust...I really hope it's as delicious as I'm imagining it will be!
  13. 13 Going on 30 and Clueless are two of our favorites.
  14. We saw it a few years ago, and it was so much fun! I'm not so sure I think the whistles were a great idea, though. 😉
  15. So much of this stuff is subjective. I can tell someone their earrings are pretty, even if I don't personally think so, because my opinion on the beauty of jewelry is not the be-all-end-all. Same with dresses and other clothing. My motto is "it's nice to be nice," and if that means telling a friend I think her dress is pretty, even though it's not my personal taste, I'm perfectly fine with that. It doesn't mean it's not pretty to somebody (most likely said friend, if she's wearing it, and probably others as well).
