The Friday 5 is a list of things I’m digging on this week. Holla.
- Billy Wilder films
Billy Wilder wrote & directed & just overall ran the show for some amazing films. I finally saw “Double Indemnity” this week on TCM & then spent Thursday evening watching “The Apartment” (one of my faves). The dialogue that Wilder put in his movies are just awesome- they’re funny, sarcastic & have a little heart in there every now & then. The actors that took on these great roles are some of my favorites as well. Fred MacMurray, Jack Lemmon, Shirley Mclaine all have memorable roles & I can’t say enough great things about. Next Wednesday, January 20, TCM is airing “The Apartment” in primetime to continue celebrating Fred MacMurray as the Star of the Month. I highly suggest checking out the film if you haven’t- it’s just awesome.
2. Kathy Lee & Hoda
I hate to admit it, but having this new schedule, I’m enjoying watching Kathy Lee & Hoda on the Today show 10 am hour. They’re hilarious, ridiculous, sweet & kinda darn heart warming. The fact they’re sweet friends really takes the cake. They help my mornings be a little more fun (that & that cutie Willie from the earlier hour of the Today Show).
3. Girl Time
Following suit with KLG & Hoda, I’m getting in the spirit of having some girl time. One of the gals I’m closest to my sister in law, Meg. We’re making a point to spend time together more often this year & I’m so excited. Life gets busy & it’s hard to get together with your girls & it’s time to make a point of it with Meg & also all my other girls.
4. The Dis
This year, the Dis is rocking it out, plain & simple. They’ve added a daily video news update on Disney parks, a new Dreams Unlimited video podcast about traveling beyond Disney & added the wonderful Jackie to “The Trip”. I’m also admittedly quite jealous due to the fact that Pete & crew are now in the parks during the week to keep up to speed with everything going on. I have to say that I’ve seen even more positive coming from their posts & reviews since there’s been more of the crew in the parks, too. I’m a fan of this. The crew are also amping up their social media presence & posting more interactive opportunities. I love where they’re heading & can’t help but think that the Dis is just going to keep getting better & better!
5. Black Hair Dye
This is happening as soon as I post this article. I’ve been holding off on redyeing, but it’s time. Something is fun about going darker- plus it’s always nice to have a little spa moment in the day.
