In the theater – This is more of a challenge. I want to say Pocahontas (1995), but it may have actually been Hercules (1997).

Ellie and Carl Fredericksen, Up (2009)

Image result for carl and ellie wedding

I’m already tearing up. The first 10 minutes of Up evoke so many emotions!

It’s clear Ellie and Carl were meant for each other. I smile when I think of their wedding day and this kiss, because it’s a sweet, wonderful moment of happiness and pure joy.

I won’t spoil it for those who may not have seen it, but you’ve been warned. Have tissues ready.

Day 13 – Your least favorite song

“Let It Go” from Frozen (2013)

Image result for let it go from frozen

It was symbolic in the movie. I downloaded it on my phone. Now, I can’t stand to listen to it. Idina Menzel is a good singer, don’t get me wrong. But give me a song from Wicked any day. Not this.

Day 12 – Your favorite villain song

“The Mob Song” from Beauty and The Beast (1991)

Image result for disney villain song gaston

This song. It struck absolute fear in me. Every scene associated with this song is hate-filled, angered, and frightening. But, at the same time, it’s one of the most memorable ones I know.

Save Karyn: One Shopaholic’s Journey to Debt and Back

  • I found this gem at a thrift store several years ago. It was a very interesting and insightful work on shopping, lifestyle, debt, and gaining your life back.

The Sky’s The Limit: My Journey with Maryellen

  • As much flack as American Girl has received for revamping their books, I like the choose-your-own-adventure books for the historical characters. It’s fun! Maryellen and her world remind me a lot of my mom, who grew up in Florida.

smashed

Smashed: Story of a Drunken Girlhood

  • I’ve had this book for half of my life. I found it at a thrift store on a whim. I’ve re-read it at least three times since then. It’s a sobering (no pun intended) story about alcohol and its effects on one woman, coupled with statistics and stories about underage drinking that will scare anyone straight.

18580

Summer of My German Soldier

  • I think this was one of the summer reading books in middle school? I didn’t like it the first time, but I re-read it a few years later. It’s one of the better middle-grade historical novels I’ve read.

A Stand for Independence

A Stand for Independence: A Felicity Classic 2

  • Al bought me the first two Felicity BeForever books for my birthday. I loved the original Felicity books growing up, especially since her world is set in Colonial Williamsburg.

Stars Stripes and Surprises

Stars, Stripes, and Surprises: A Molly Classic 2

  • I’ve raved about Samantha and Felicity, but Molly has always been my favorite character from American Girl. Her BeForever books were no different, transporting me back to 1944.

Stepping on the Cracks

  • I devoured Mary Downing Hahn’s books when I was younger. This is another WWII-era novel, and a powerful one.

22232

Stargirl

Day 11 – Your favorite love song

“Can You Feel The Love Tonight” from The Lion King (1994)

Image result for can you feel the love tonight

I’m pretty sure this is one of the first songs I memorized from a Disney movie. My parents still have The Lion King soundtrack on CD, and I have fond memories of listening to it and singing along with my mom in the car.

This is one of those songs that gives me chills at the start. I’m pretty sure I learned to play it in orchestra class at one point, too. It’s hard to believe this year is the 25th Anniversary of the movie!

This is one of the most fun and entertaining Disney songs. It’s a feast for the eyes, too. And, it’s Robin Williams, for heaven’s sake. I miss his talent every day.
