Happy New Year!

I for one cannot wait for 2009 to be over! Definitely the worst year ever. Let's hope 2010 is drastically different. We're going to see nine in a little bit. I get to see my boyfriend Daniel Day-Lewis and my husband gets to see his girlfriend Marion Cotillard. Then staying in as we usually do. (This is usually my least favorite holiday.)

I didn't even know until today that Daniel Day-Lewis' character is Guido from 8 1/2. One of my favorite foreign films.

What did you get for Christmas?

I got 3 different packs of polaroid film! I'm still a bit scared to try the fade to black, so I started out with my favorite artistic tz. My husband also got me The State on dvd which I didn't even know was out yet! I've been waiting forever for it. Such a good show. and books, books, books galore!

movie interiors: Before Sunset

One (well two really) of my favorite movies are the Before Sunrise/Before Sunset duo. I have been in love with Ethan Hawke since Reality Bites and fell in love with Julie Delpy the first time I saw Before Sunrise. Why aren't there more movies like this? The end is my favorite part, partially due to Celine's gorgeous lived-in Parisian apartment.

her amazing alleyway complete with ivy and old bricks.

a beautiful courtyard soiree.

I wish my neighbors were like this. Check out that antique daybed. (btw-that man who looks like hemingway is actually her father in real life. He was also in 2 Days In Paris with her.)

Her apartment is so fun and lived-in. I love her eclectic mix of lanterns and lights.

what a collection of books and music.

I would love to have a balcony with herbs growing on the railing.

Little collages of photos on every wall...

If there's any movie interiors you'd like to see, let me know so I can add them to my list!

100 books

This year I finally started reading regularly again after a very long hiatus. I used to love reading so much my mom had to put a limit on how many books I could check out of the library. Then school made me hate reading. I didn't want to read their books and I didn't want to stop and write about every chapter and then take a test. It completely took the joy out of it for me. So this year, I set out to read at least 50 books, which then turned into 100. I'm on my last book right now. Here's my top 25 for the year.


honorable mentions: water for elephants, i need you more than i love you and i love you to bits, pride and prejudice and zombies, everything was fine until whatever
