Flashback Friday

All this week I have been looking for a great, classic, end of the summer movie, to share with my kids.
I finally landed on A League of Their Own. It is truly one of my all time favorite movies. With a cast so fun and a topic so great it is for sure a classic in my book. I know it's technically not a classic since I don't consider it that old being that it was filmed in the 90's. But, if you were to ask my kids if it's a classic well... you should have heard the comments at the end of the movie when the actors were made up to look like their older selves.  And I quote, "Wow, the makeup artist's did a really great job making them look old. It's so believable for being such an old movie."
Ahem... yes a movie from the 90's is OLD to my children, and so am I . Welcome to my world.

 But, my kids kept recognizing tons of other actors and actresses that I didn't even know. I guess the lady from the TV show Monk is in it and Tea Leoni. And Tom Hanks really cracks me right up as the grumpy, drunk coach. One of My favorite parts is when he yells at one of the girls for making a bad play and she starts crying. He says,"What are you doing? Are you crying? There's no crying in Baseball. THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!"
Anyway, it's a great "OLD" movie(wink wink) and if you and your family haven't seen it yet do yourselves a favor and check it out.

I was paying close attention to the hair do's and the way the women were using the scarves to put their hair up. And because I love you, and trust you not to put these silly pictures up all over the internet(bah ha ha) I am gonna share a few of the styles that I came up with, with you all. Tell me what you think?

And Your Welcome.

In honor of the movie I chose a baseball post to go along with the movie. It wasn't hard for me to find a baseball post, although it's hard to believe this whole season I haven't written a single blog about it. Other than of course my boys playing.
I think this week I shall have to remedy that.
Happy Friday Everyone! Hope you all have a great labor day weekend ahead.

So now it's time for what I like to call a little FBF- if you are new here this is a link up for blogs that are a year or older. You find an old post that you want others to read or re-read and link it up. Then you read each others and I hope comment and get to know your fellow FBF'ers.

One of my favorite movies of all time, "A League of Their Own." I get their song stuck in my head often..."batter up...the time has come, to pla-a-ay ball..." Amazing.
