Movie Night

Last week, I had the joys of winning the Deluxe Cocoa Sampler from Keeping up with Kelly!  She has a giveaway a couple times a month, and maybe you will be the next lucky winner.  Thanks Kelly, what a perfect treat for a chilly night!




You better believe I made myself a yummy cup of Mint Hot Chocolate (my fav!), built a fire (actually hubby did), and turned on a Pixar film!!  I would have made some popcorn, but I am still bitter that I bought the pack of 1,000 from Costco, which is 99% Fat Free and tastes way too healthy.  Next time, Homestyle it is!!




I am a huge fan of Pixar films and finally just got around this evening to watch Up!  Carol told me to get my kleenex ready, and for some reason I didn't cry or even come close!!  And, I am an emotional movie watcher - remember me and The Blind Side??  I thought Up was hilarious, and Gabe and I found ourselves enjoying the cute and well made movie.  





Ratatouille is still hands down one of my favorite Pixar film, as well as the classic Toy Story series.  Gotta love lines from that movie!  For some reason, Wall-E was a little too slow for me, but everyone else liked it but me it seems .....


What's your favorite Pixar film?


**By the way, how in the world did I get 499 READERS???  It all happened within the blink of an eye -- amazing!!!

Up is so wonderful! I think it might actually be my favorite Pixar with Monsters Inc. following close behind.

I didn't like Wall-E either... It was so boring!! I loved UP, but I did cry. I cried @ the parts when it showed him and his wife. I thought it was beautiful : ) I think my favorite would have to be Toy Story.."Don't Make Me Use My Angry Eyes" lol..

Have you seen The Princess and The Frog? It is not a PIXAR film but a fantastic cartoon. I loved it.

Aww your very welcome and enjoy

I have never seen UP, loks too cute

Patty Ann said...

Haven't seen Up, need to! Oh gosh, I love them all. Finding Nemo maybe...too hard to pick! But, I did love Wall-E!

Alicia said...

oh man....UP had me bawling like a baby!! i'd have to say that toy story 1 and 2 are my favs....mostly because my kids are OBSESSED with them!! in fact they're already freaking out about toy story 3 that comes on in 2010! have a fab week lady!

Kristin said...

Mmmmmmm. Hot choco and a fun flick. Sounds like a perfect evening to me!

QueenBeeSwain said...

xoox

I think Up is my favorite Pixar movie- before that it was Finding Nemo :) I love them all! Wall-E is the only one I've watched once though (oh- and Bolt). Usually we see them in the theatre then buy them, but not so much with those two.

Sherrie said...

It sounds like a great night.

Heather said...

I loved UP. We bought it recently.

I loved Wall-E, such a sweet movie.

sHp said...

Sounds like an awesome evening! Don't you just LOVE those nights?!!!! As for my favorite Pixar film I would have to say it's Toy Story (the first and the second). I haven't seen UP yet but plan to rent it soon and as for Wall-E, well, I didn't care too much for it :( I'm a kid at heart, who still enjoys watching cartoons, and Cinderella will always be my fav :)

Kelly said...

Omigosh, how did you not cry while watching "Up"?? ;-) I bawled throughout the whole movie... I think it was a combo of the music and the loss that he had for Ellie :-( I'm about to tear up now, haha!

I love Wall-E and Finding Nemo. I haven't see Ratatoulie yet, but want to!

I would love a Cannon Rebel too! Wishful thinking, huh? :-)

Leigh said...

I love hot cocoa...I wish I was home right now in front of a fire with a warm cup of chocolate and a movie!!! But nope...work it is!! :)

Caroline said...

We're receiving "Up" today from Netflix. I am so excited!!

katie + bret said...

I haven't seen UP yet but I totally want to!! I like majority of the little cartoon movies, I don't think I can pick just one!

K.C. said...

I adored UP! and received it for Christmas, exactly the same as my two year old cousin haha.

I agree with you that Ratatouille is my all time Pixar fav.

Jenna said...

love those movies! not sure which is my favorite though... probably toy story, can't help but love it! haha

Angie said...

I loved UP too, just finally watched it recently because my son got it for christmas and I really liked it! I did tear up during the parts of him and his wife.
I love Ratatoille and Finding Nemo! And yes I agree did not like Wall-E at all, I am glad im not the only one cuz seems like everyone eles I know loved it!

Jessica said...

Sounds like a fun night! I cried like a baby through The Blind Side, too, but was fine during Up. It was a cute movie :-) My favorite Pixar movie has to be Toy Story.

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

Hot Cocoa sounds so amazing right now! Yummy! I think out of all of those I've only seen Ratatouille and Toy Story but I LOVED Ratatouilee. I'll definitely check the others out though. They would be great to watch with my baby brother!

Calling_Rhonda said...

I cried my eyes out during the beginning of Up. I also agree the Wall-E was a bit slow, but I really wanted to like it. While I love pixar, and I think it is just fascinating, noting beats the good ol Disney movies (Cinderella, The Little Mermaid etc...)

Rachel said...

I cried like a baby in Up! Loved it!

My favorite Pixar is Nemo. Love that litle fish :)

Jax said...

499?! Holy moly!! Way to go, girlie! It's b/c you're so fabutastically amazing! Duh. :) XOXO! And I heart Pixar films, but I dont even know what my favorite would be! I havent seen Up! yet...

Carol said...

499!!! That is awesome! Oh my gosh I cry and laugh during Up, just that beginning part totally gets to me. Nick and I are huge Pixar fans too, our second fave Pixar movie is Wall-e.

Linda said...

Up is in my queue. We'll see it someday!
if that popcorn is still wrapped you might consider donating it. I'm sure someone else might enjoy it and you can buy what you really want :)

I'm Just Sayin' - Kerri said...

I too did not like Wall-E. I have yet to see UP though, we were considering renting it today, and now I think we for sure will!

My personal favorite pixar movie is by far Finding Nemo. I have loved them all but Nemo cracks me up!

"Fish are friends - not food". :)
