? Bored this Weekend ?

I can't imagine anyone could be bored this weekend since it is Father's Day & a beautiful summer weekend...BUT if you find yourself needing some heart warming, here are two picks I have for you!
~The Proposal~

This movie was really, really cute and funny!
Now I understand you may question my taste since many of you did not like the last movie I LOVED, but there is something about romatic comedies when my hubby and children are gone that make them seem really good! Oh, how I've missed Sandra Bullock's comedy! My all-time favorite is the RV scene in "Two Weeks Notice". This movie has lines and scenes that are laugh-out-loud funny!
Of course, I love the pretty scenery and you must catch a quick glimpse of the kitchen in Alaska AND the chandelier above Andrew's shoulder in the barn. Speaking of the guy, Ryan Reynolds is dreamy! He has puppy dog eyes and one smokin' bod! Okay, check it out and let me know what ya think!
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
This book is one of the best books I've read in a very long time. Do not be put off that the entire book is a series of letters written between characters. The characters are funny, sweet and the entire book makes you feel happy! The story behind the authors is interesting. The story is of the Guernsey islands just after the German occupation. It is not a "war story" and not a "history lesson". Just a book about kindred spirits who find friendships through fate and some even find love.
What are some great finds you've discovered lately? Do you agree or disagree with my picks?

I read somewhere that there was nudity in the movie. Is there? I like Sandra Bullock too - I love "While You Were Sleeping".

I want to watch The Proposal it looks so cute! I too am a Sandra B. Fan I love all her movies. I'll have to check out that book as well, I'm always looking for a good read.

Thanks,
Rachel
