The Blind Side



I. Cried. Like. A. Baby. through pretty much the entire movie!  22x would not be an exaggeration!

I heard so much about this movie and was really excited about taking the hubby to see it last night since multiple friends said Gabe would love it too.  Sandra Bullock was amazing and loved her role.  It definitely lived up to the hype, so GO SEE THIS MOVIE this holiday because it will tug at your heart!


We are running out the door to church, and it's Ugly Christmas Sweater Sunday!  We love ugly sweater parties, and actually sent out our Christmas card two years ago with our picture in them.

We thought it was funny .... my parents on the other hand, not so much!  I have to say, Gabe's sweater is a handmade piece of art that we found at the local thrift store.

Great movie. I'm still trying to figure out where she got the white watch she wore through the majority of the movie.

The sweaters are priceless.

the blind side: definitely a tear jerker!!! i think that's my favorite role that sandra bullock has played since hope floats... and i'm actually from memphis and was in the same private school network when michael played in high school, so it's wierd because i remember cheering against him like it was just yesterday!

~KS said...

Gabe's sweater... oh I die!! Ha!! Love it!

And I loved the Blind Side... exceptional. I loved seeing the pictures at the end of the actual family too. Just loved it all around.

I love your photo and the fact that it was the photo for your Christmas card. Nothing like a good sense of humor!!!

Great movie. I can't wait to buy it and watch Sandra win tons of awards!!

I have never been to an ugly sweater party and have always wanted too. Next year I am making it my mission to go to one or host one!!

we saw the blindside right after Thanksgiving with our families and I agree that it is absolutely fabulous! My dad is not a movie watcher OR a football fan and even he talked about how great it was!

HAPPY MONDAY!

I think I'll wait to see the movie until I can rent it-I HATE bawling like a baby in the movie theater :)

This really was the best movie I'd seen in a LONG time. Loved it!

Natasha said...

best movie ever!!!

Kimberly said...

Those sweaters are nothing short of amazing... And I completely agree with you about The Blindside! We rarely go to the movies & usually just wait until they're on DVD or Pay-Per-View, but because of all the rave reviews I'd heard we went to see it in theatre. I, too, cried like a baby & can't wait to watch it again! It inspired me to save the world...or something!! :)

Iva said...

I've heard GREAT things about that movie, and I think your picture is perfect for your Christmas card. I always love seeing unique pictures as opposed to the ultra-posed awkward family pictures :-)

Kristy said...

Ashley @ Ramirez Family said...

It was a great movie...I kinda want to see it again! Anyways cute picture, but I love yours this year. Thanks for sending us one! I love it, and it is up on our fridge. Now Jared can put a name to a face ;)

We didn't do Christmas Cards this year, but we definitely will next year. I was just too lazy this year, ha.

Are you going to be in TX for the holidays? We really need to get together!!

OceanDreams said...

I hope you had fun at your sweater party and I want to see that movie badly, glad you enjoyed it so much. Just confirms even more that it is a winner and plus I love Sandra Bullock.
