Here's the highlight reel from my week.
My 11-year-old and I have started something fun--whenever little sister is at a playdate or birthday party, we watch a classic film together, just the two of us. I think he enjoys getting to do something "grown up" and I like sharing what I learned as a film studies major with him.
This past weekend, we watched Dirty Harry. Made in 1971, it's a fantastic example of the aesthetic of the time. The Library of Congress said basically the same thing two years ago when the movie was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
Have a look at this clip with the infamous line: "Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" Aren't the sets just so great?!
2. Swim Bike Run
My sweet little girl finally ditched the training wheels on her bike this week and has requested a big bike from the Easter Bunny. She also started Mileage Club this week, a program sponsored by our local hospital to encourage children to live a healthy, fit lifestyle by running three days a week. And, once a week, swims after school. A triathlete in the making??
3. FLOR is FBFree
FLOR is offering free samples of its carpet squares today via Facebook. Get your sample using promo code FBFree. I was able to get two samples at absolutely no cost. They have so many gorgeous colors and patterns. My favorite is this leopard print above.
