So last night I decided to stay in and curl up in bed and watch a movie while finishing my #girlboss book at the same time (pretty sure I have ADD). I watched  'Up Close and Personal' with Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert Redford (OMG he is sooooo handsome btw .... and she is beautiful!) The movie was great. I was eating crackers, reading my book, and Googling brass coffee tables when all of a sudden the movie got sadddddddd! Stopppppp it. Before I knew it I was freaking sobbing all over my Cheez-Its, closing down my browsers and thinking

"ooooooooh who cares about these tables! Life is too short! It doesn't even matter what coffee table I getttttttt."

Seriously though, when the movie was over I turned it off and had to watch HGTV for a good 30 minutes so I could calm down and feel normal again. Please tell me someone else has watched this movie? And cried like a lunatic.

By the way, these pancakes in a mug are super fun and not depressing at all. I highly reccommend them. Especially after watching a sad movie. Xx
