101 in 1001 XIV

#81 Get married Book wedding
This is a huge step forward! Rich and I have been engaged for almost 5 years now and kept postponing our wedding. Finally, we have bitten the bullet and booked our wedding/ honeymoon hybrid for this August. Only 6 months and a bit to go! 

#96 Read 75 books

I'm hoping to read 50 books in 2014 and I've got off to a good start, with 4 read this month. I'm not far off my 75 target already- I think this makes 52 in total since I started my 101 in 1001 project. I've still got 15 months to go! 

#101 Watch all the films

I've changed the wording of this one slightly. All the films. Yep, all of them.

I watched Saving Mr Banks this month but there's no photo of that, for obvious reasons. It was wonderful. Emma Thompson is a genius! Similarly, there's no photo for The Wolf of Wall Street which is well worth the hype, despite how long it is. We watched 12 Years a Slave too, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's so important that I feel like I should have found it more interesting than I did. 

I've loved Elvis' music for a long time but had never seen one of his films until this month. I have to admit, Love Me Tender didn't really draw me in but I'll try some more.

After reading, and hating, Submarine, I got a lot of comments recommending the film adaptation so we had a watch. It was brilliantly shot, but the storyline was just not there for me. The most interesting thing about it was that the lead was played by the emo vampire kid from Being Human.


  1. Aw, we booked our wedding this week too, also after a 5 year engagement. Ours isn't until next August though, I'm feeling quite jealous you get to do it this year! Congratulations! x

  2. I lied! We will have been engaged five years by the time we get married. It just feels like it has been five! x

    1. Haha I understand that- It feels like forever! Congratulations on booking your wedding. Isn't it such an exciting step?

  3. Eeee, very exciting with the wedding booking! Congratulations!

    As a soon-to-be bride (we're getting married in November), I'd say do as much as you can as soon as you can, and try not to get too stressed about it. I'm curious about where it is now though!

  4. Wasn't Saving Mr Banks just amazing? I absolutely loved it. And I took my Grandma out to watch it for her Christmas Present so it was just such a great day. Congratulations with the wedding booking. Look forward to hearing about it.
