Mamma Mia!
Dismiss any criticism you might have heard about the movie and just allow it to be what it is:  a light-hearted romp filled with charm and silly humor and songs that will lift your spirits and send you dancing around your house for several days after.   Tip:  Set the DVD to play in the background as you tend to your household chores.   —You won't be sorry. *   :)

For Gita:
I Have A Dream (MP3 download)
Thank You For The Music (MP3 download)
sung by Amanda Seyfried, Mamma Mia!

*A favorite movie quote: 
Janeane Garofalo as Vicki Miner, Reality Bites
"Can you turn this up, please? Please?  You won't be sorry."

I just bought two new sets of white sheets yesterday, nothing loud to sleep on, keep it calm. I loved the movie Mamma Mia and the music. Have a lovely Sunday!

I am a fan of white sheets too. I used to have red and found it difficult to relax around that hue!

The headboard is a typical and traditional spanish rug made of esparto. I have one in my house, the old men in my village still make them.
I love your style, you do have a wonderful blog.
It's my first comment but not my first visit.
Regards from Spain.

I regard myself as a cynic but I enjoy Mamma Mia wholeheartedly - and often. Why stint?
