OMGFROZEN!

Happy April first! I'm a loser and have no jokes up my sleeve...only a really fun post! ;)

My favorite couple in the whole wide world, Erin and Jared came over last weekend and surprised us with the latest Disney movie, Frozen. Heard of it? ;) I kid...of course you have, unless you've been living under a rock.

Much to my own disbelief, Caleb and I hadn't been able to make time to hit up the theatre and see said movie. It devastated us...and hearing everyone else talk about how incredible it was, just made me more sad we hadn't had the chance to see it. So when they surprised us with the film...it pretty much made my week!!

I had an insanely busy week last week (which would explain why I didn't workout....once.....whoops), so waiting until this past weekend to watch it was killing me!! Friday night, Caleb and I were finally able to watch it and O-M-G. Not that you guys probably care at all, unless you're huge Disney fans (which is pretty much a requirement to read my blog...hehe), but I'm going to list my favorite moments! 

Olaf. I meaaaan, he was making me laugh so hard. What's even better? I love the actor. When doing research (yes, I do research, read up on trivia, and check out factoids about these movies!), they said that a lot of "Olaf's script" was made up in-the-moment by Josh Gad. He freakin cracks me up!

The fact that they didn't make Elsa a villain. When reading about the movie, the directors thought about doing this...but realized it would've taken the movie into a whole new direction, and they steered away from that. THANKFULLY. I love the fact that this is about two sisters, and that Elsa was only trying to protect Anna, even if that meant putting herself in total isolation (saying that out loud, does sound a tad nerdy...I realize this)!

Let It Go. I mean, the whole scene in this movie looks like an all out music video. I think I recall saying "WEERKKKK IT ELSAAA!!" as she strutted to the patio of her ice palace. That song though, it just makes me happy.

Sven. I could NOT get over how darn cute he was as a baby Moose. I mean, I want one. He was adorable, and just a fun character to watch throughout the movie. My favorite part? Near the end of the movie when they get a new sleigh (or whatever it is), and he looks at Kristoff like he's all that.

PS - if you've done any research at all, or read about the hypothesis on Frozen, you might have seen the apparent appearance of Rapunzel and Eugene on coronation day! Reading up on people's theories on Disney movie's weirdly excites me...and finding hidden cameos like this are so fun!

I could literally go on and on about this film, and I won't even tell you how much I've read about the making, creating, song writing, etc. It's just so great, if you haven't seen it yet...RUN, don't walk, to your nearest store to pick it up! This is definitely a movie I'll watch at LEAST 6 times a year :)

The rest of my weekend was nice, Caleb and I ran some much needed errands on Saturday, and our Sunday was literally jam packed. Church, photography consultation, children's ministry luncheon at the park, an hour of rest, and then youth group at church again. We were extremely busy, but I wouldn't change it for the world. Hope you had a great weekend, too!

PS - have you entered the giveaway that Ashley & I have for you? If not, go now!! A few days left to win yourself a gift card to the greatest place on Earth...Target! Obviously.

  4. one of the best Disney movies (IMO) I love Olaf!!!

    Brad was reading about it and he said there is supposedly a mickey doll somewhere in the movie and also something about Donnie Osmonds nephew was an animator and the one scene where Hans and Anna are dancing and the shadow is a Donnie Osmond signature move?

  8. All three of my kids LOVE this movie! If you ask Leah if she wants to build a snowman, she'll say, "or ride your bike around the hall?"

  9. I want Elsa's sparkly dress. Oh, and her body to go with it.

    Best line ever: "Some people are worth melting for." *sob*

  14. Hands down our favorite Disney movie!! We watched it the day it came out in the the theater, have the entire soundtrack and now own the DVD. I think I am partial to it because of the sisters being blonde and red headed...reminds me of my own two girls. :)
