Happy Groundhog Day!!!

The first groundhog day I ever celebrated was with good friends, Liz and Jim Pittcavage!

(borrowed photo from liz's fb page)

We watched the movie groundhog day and ate stovetop popcorn thanks to Jim.

I thought the movie was extremely depressing. I felt so bad for the guy and just wanted the day to end.

However, I watched it again while feeding baby and decided it's not so bad. So perhaps you should curl up with some popcorn and enjoy a little cinematic celebration of this fine/ridiculous holiday!

(call me if you need to borrow it)

Oh and the groundhog did see his shadow. 6 more weeks of winter to which I say BRING IT ON!!! With an average temp of 70 degrees, it can be winter til May according to me!

I also hated that movie the first time. I wanted to gouge my eyes out. So much repeition + Bill Murray. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHH. But then a funny thing happened: I watched it again, voila! Hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing. Either it's actually funny, or...I cracked.

Ok so Jim said that it's a really cute town just like in the movie, but the groundhog is actually out in a big field, not like the movie.

but he didn't say "cute town" those were my words. clarification.

So I just wanted to say that for years Christian's family has made a huge deal out of Groundhog Day. They always get together and watch the movie {after taking a quiz to see how much they remembered from last year's viewing}. It's kind of a crazy tradition, but I love it. And I think the movie is hilarious.
