LML Monday - Movie Marathons & Helpful Wrapping Paper

It's Monday once again, my friends. And as always that means it's time to reflect on the things that made us happy over the past week. And of course now is also the perfect time to set the tone for a great week to come! 

If you missed my take on LML, you can find it here. If you missed the explanation of LML Monday, you can catch up here.

Movie Marathons
Santa came to our house a little early this year.

Thanks to my son's obsession with Angry Birds (and the latest version, Angry Birds Star Wars) he has been dying to see the Star Wars movies. We discovered that for some strange reason we had never upgraded from the old VHS copies that we had from decades ago, so we decided to join this century and go for the Blu Ray collection.

So this weekend we stocked up on the requisite junk food (popcorn, Cheetos  M&Ms, etc.) and settled in for a family movie marathon. We only made it through the first three movies so far. (So we get to do it again next weekend! Yea!) It was a great time, and the kids loved the movies. (My son is chomping at the bit to watch the rest of them.) And getting to finally expose my little geeks-in-training to the joy that is Star Wars was just as much fun for me as it was for them. :)

Helpful Wrapping Paper
It's such a little thing, but it's one of those little things that makes my life a bit more convenient, so I appreciate it greatly.

I was wrapping some gifts this week when I discovered that some of the wrapping paper was printed with these helpful little grids on the back. I don't know about you, but it always bugs me when I cut wrapping paper and it turns out to be crooked. (I know it doesn't really matter, because you fold it anyway, but for someone as persnickety as me, it's an irritant.)

So to the makers of these helpful wrapping paper rolls, I say thank you. I for one love anything that can take even a little bit of stress out of the holidays.

Ok. I shared mine - now it's your turn! Please feel free to leave me a comment and share some of your recent LML moments. Focus on the happy thoughts, and let's all have a great week!

And if you're a blogger and would like to get in on the LML fun, feel free to grab the code and join the blog hop! Your post doesn't specifically have to use the "LML" label (although you're welcome to use it if you'd like.) But if you have any kind of happy, positive Monday message that you'd like to share you're welcome to join. The more happy vibes, the better the Monday!
