When I was a little girl, I loved Alexander.

He was perfectly adorable with his unruly red hair and his pursed, pouty lips.  His button nose was to-die-for darling.  I could relate to him and his "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad" day, as I knew about bad days as a third grader.  (I wore a retainer and frequently had tuna sandwiches in my school lunch!)  He was my favorite boy in one of my favorite books. 

By now I'm sure you have heard that Judith Viorst's timeless piece of children's literature has been made into a film!  What fun!  Will you see it?  Will you take your children to see it?

You'll find me in the concessions line, ordering the extra large popcorn!

I hope your day is anything but "terrible, horrible, no good," and "very bad," my friends!  
Happy Friday!

Friends!  Fall is here, The Voice is back on TV, and Adam Levine is oh-so yummy.  (Wait!  What?!)  HA!  I ADORE this time of year--crisp mornings, chilly nights, sweater weather, new boots, hot cocoa, and FALL CRAFTING!
