sunday citar....'i'm no julie'


it's been only recently that i've re-entered the

wonderful world of blogging once again.....


and with that comes the weekly occurance of

SUNDAY CITAR!

it's a wonderful idea from my adorable

friend tab @



so i'm tying another new obsession of

mine into my sunday citar

and it is

(insert drumroll here)


JULIE & JULIA!

one of my newest and all time

favorite movies now!

partially because it's about blogging,

and also because it's wonderfully acted,

delightfully witty and adorable,

and about something i love to do....COOK!


if you haven't had the privledge, it's a must see!

(warning: this is a 'chick flick' so you may

want to wait til the men are gone)


it's the journey of how blogging made one woman

very famous! each time i see it i want to be

a better blogger....


oh, and learn how to add cool little gadgets

like count-downs to my blog!


i'm planning on a blogging tutorial some time

in the near future with one of my

other dear friends, ashlee,

who coincidentally is a blogger as well @



stop by both for a visit....they would love that!


but back to the movie...

it's set in two different eras, two different

countries, America and France,

and it's charming and addicting!


check out


for a great trailor!







it stars Amy Adams (on the left) as the real Julie Powell (on the right)

and Meryl Streep (above)


as Julia Child (on the right)








now for the citar.....


"I sincerely believe blogging can save America."


John Jay Hooker


"The influence of blogging is overall


a very positive force in the media."

I loved this movie, too! Even though I could never hope to be a Julia Child. :)

Thanks so much for linking up with us at Communal Global!

I loved the movie too. I thought the young girl was a little snobby....and self absorbed, but I guess most bloggers are : ) I know I am a little. WHOOPS! : )
What a nice tribute post to it!
Here is the real Julia's blog link:

I'm a big fan of Julia Childs. She is the queen of the kitchen, for sure. Fantastic movie!

Grace said...

I enjoyed the movie as well. I'm not harmonious with my stove so I'm not gearing to be a Julia ;)

Gerri said...

Such a great movie!"

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

This was such a fun movie! The first one I know of that really talked about blogging... loved it! :)

Ashley Marie said...

I've been wanting to see this movie for a long time! Read the book for my bookclub and it was great.
I haven't been blogging for long but I agree...when I hear/see of people like the author it makes me want to learn more also!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
