Do you love a party with a theme as much as I do? There’s just something about it that tickles me. It doesn’t have to be big or elaborate…sometimes it’s just a nod.
Some time ago, my niece joined us on a road trip. She made a discovery about our family. She found out that, much to the chagrin of our boys – my husband and I enjoy listening to songs from musicals when we travel. Few things can keep you alert while driving better than singing (in character, of course), “I Dreamed a Dream,” or “Who’s That Guy?” Yes, we like everything from Les Miserables to Grease 2.
(Driving through Oklahoma was especially fun for Greg and I…not so much for the boys.) Oklahoma – OK!
And thus started our discussion about all of the musicals that my niece hadn’t yet seen. We decided right then and there that a Girls Movie Night must happen.
Since then, a group of young ladies, and some not as young ladies, have gathered at my house to watch movies that some of us consider classics.
It started with musicals specifically, but has branched into other genres.
