a week of halloween: sinister house films

we-are-what-we-are-largeAnd so begins the final countdown to Halloween! In honour of this awesomely gruesome holiday, I’ve decided to make each post this week a Halloween post. Because why not? I feed off of tough challenges and insane deadlines! 

Today’s post will be one that focuses on scary movies. These aren’t just any frightening films, but those that take place within sinister houses. Call it an ode to our new one

Here is my top ten list of movies with horror-ific homes:

1. The Conjuring (2013)

2. Silent House (2012)

3. The Fourth Kind (2009)

4. The Amityville Horror (2005)

5. You’re Next (2013)

6. The Shining (1980)

7. V/H/S (2012) 

8. 1408 (2007)

9. The Innkeepers (2011)

10. We Are What We Are (2013)

What are some of your favourite scary films to watch on Halloween? Feel free to leave me a list below!

hello day off.

a few weeks ago, an event occurred that only comes around a few times a year. i had the day off!!!

that’s right, friends. with currently having 4 jobs, i work everyday doing at least 1 of them. just to make my life a little busier, i also have this wonderful blog and ballet twice a week. but i would not change a thing. :-)))

very much by accident, my husband had an e.d.o. that happened to fall on a day that i was not scheduled to work. i decided to keep it that way, and to just have a fun day filled with family, love, and much randomness. here is a peek into my day of leisure:

7:00 am. wake up to this beautiful sight in our little loft. 

7:15 am. take truman capote for his morning run.

8:00 am. get ready for the day.

9:00 am. drive to my parent’s acreage to pick up my mum (she currently has a broken foot). first, though, i make a stop at tim hortons to pick us up some coffee. i am canadian, after all.

11:00 am. after having booked appointments for the near future, we then go out for brunch. it was delicious.

12:00 pm. drive my mum back to her house.

1:00 pm. i come back into town, pick up my husband, and we are off to the university to meet my step-dad. it’s time for a new computer.

2:00 pm. after picking out a bigger and better macbook, we come back home and take holly and truman for another walk. we are thoroughly enjoying this indian summer.

3:00-9:00 pm. finally in the house and settled, we relax, have supper, tidy up, watch a few episodes of our shows, and go for the last walk of the night.

9:00 pm. now my favorite part of the weekend; renting a movie. (we choose the dvd v/h/s. it is so good!)

12:00 am. after returning home and watching the film, it is now bedtime for everyone in little green. what a wonderful day. :-)

have a beautiful and relaxing weekend, y’all!
