I found myself once again in the dating pool at the age of forty-five. This is where "a lot of fish in the sea" becomes "several bottom-feeders peppered with sharks possessing false teeth."

  4. Firstly, the book cover is interesting. Secondly, the title, I don't even know what to say! Lastly, that 56 is utterly hilarious! It totally fits the cover. It would be horrible to be a bottom-feeder at such an age though :/

  5. I would expect a memoir by Brad Garrett to have a lot of humor. Sounds good!

  6. Out of curiosity, have you ever thought about making a Friday56 hashtag on instagram? I love the idea of your meme, but I'm not so keen on microposts. Plus I think lots of hand lettered lines from books would be cute on my instagram feed!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
