a simple lifestyle blog


Usually, every few months, we finally get around to organizing our calendar for the week.
Plan meals, budget each expense, plan a date night, arrange who gets the car for which commitments, etc.
It doesn’t always happen, but when it does, its ~* PuRe MaGiC *~
This week, we not only organized our schedule for the week, but for the next TWO MONTHS.
As king of the world, I will now gift my people with my #FridayFavorites!

FLICKS: The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Henry Altmann, played by Robin Williams (Good Will Hunting / Jumanji / Patch Adams) is a very angry man who has just found out from the woman filling in for his doctor (Mila Kunis, Black Swan / Forgetting Sarah Marshall) that he has a severe brain aneurysm and only has 90 minutes to live. Having alienated himself from his friends and family, Henry attempts to traverse the savage city streets of Brooklyn in search of reconciliation with those closest to him. Meanwhile his reluctant doctor finds herself chasing Henry all over the city in an attempt to get him admitted to a hospital before either his rising anger or declining health bring about his imminent end.

This was one of the final films Robin Williams worked on before his untimely death in August 2014. While it did not receive rousing critical reviews, I found it to be an entertaining, albeit sobering, story featuring a strong cast of characters. I will watch anything Robin Williams is in, but add in the incomparable Peter Dinklage and fiery Mila Kunis and I am most definitely on board. I found myself laughing out loud almost as much as I found myself stricken with significance of the film’s message.

I will leave you with my hearty recommendation and a favorite quote from the movie.

“The only normal people there are, are the ones you don’t know very well.”

TUNES: “Harrisburg” by Josh Ritter

Curious as to why you’ve never heard this morsel of Americana goodness?
The album, Golden Age of Radio, was originally self-published for just $1000. Serious!
Ritter hails from Moscow, Idaho, but achieved his major success after hopping the pond and landing in Ireland where he was picked up by Glen Hansord of The Frames.
Take a listen!

EATS: Gin and Grapefruit Sorbet by ice cream magazine

and Grapefruit.

I happen to be a gin girl, but I understand the gin camp is at odds.
I’m here today to unite the people with this impossibly simple recipe from ice cream magazine.
Say this with me:
“I pledge allegiance to the sorbet, and to the dessert-lovers for which it stands, one treat under God, indivisible, with gin and grapefruit for all.”
Let’s eat.

Its a very persuasive argument.

Until next week, cheers!

    I just might be watching that movie this weekend, and I don’t think my waistline needed to learn about ice cream magazine. The desserts on there look absolutely sinful!


  6. Yep. That shirt.

      Right?? If I actually bought all these t-shirts, my husband would be out of a side of the closet. 😉
