Movie Trivia Game

Let's play a game!
I posted this a LONG time ago on my facebook (so if you're fb friends with me no cheating!).
I'll post quotes from my favorite movies.
In the comments section, try to guess the movies.
I'll edit the post as people get the answers correctly.
See how well you know me and my movie tastes :)
No cheating and googling the answers!

It's a little old so it doesn't have some of my more recent favs.

Good Luck!

And may the odds be ever in your favor!

  1. No, no, you know the real reason why you're scared? It's cause you wanna be with me too. - Walk to Remember
  2. Well why don't we harpoon Charles straight through the head, drag him back to the apartment, and hit him with a hammer until he agrees to come back?
  3. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What's it look like? - The Notebook
  4. When you look in her eyes and she's looking back in yours. Everything feels not quite normal. Because you feel stronger and weaker at the same time. You feel excited and at the same time, terrified. The truth is... you don't know what you feel except you know what kind of man you want to be. It's as if you've reached the unreachable and you weren't ready for it.
  5. “If you want, I'll fight you with one hand.” “I’ll fight you with none.”
  6. Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse.
  7. Can you tell I'm wearing underwear? 'Cause I totally am. - 13 Going on 30
  8. Sunblock, lip balm, insect repellent, stationery, stamps, photographs of your mother, grandfather, and of course, your trusty butler, me. - The Parent Trap (new one)
  9. Why are you doing these things? Why are you using your powers against me?
  10. Your positive perception of me is vital to my existence. Besides, it is not everyday a father can give the world to his child.
  11. You turned out to be exactly who I thought you were. I never pretended to be somebody else. It's been me all along. - A Cinderella Story
  12. Mom! We are on high alert here. I almost killed you right then! You do not even realize!
  13. We spend more time defending our relationship than actually having one. - Save the Last Dance
  14. I kneel before you not as a prince, but as a man in love... But I would feel like a king if you would be my wife. - Ever After
  15. Well you know what really sucks about falling for a guy you know you're not right for? You fall anyway because you think he might turn out to be different.
  16. “My insurance does not cover PMS!” “Well, tell them I had a seizure.”
  17. I have no armor left. You've stripped it from me. Whatever is left of me - whatever is left of me - whatever I am - I'm yours.
  18. Wait for me! Wait for me! Not you- I don’t even know you. - The Princess Diaries
  19. Imagine a world without murder. 6 years ago, the homicidal rates had reached epidemic proportions. It seemed that only a miracle could stop the bloodshed.

  21. You know your mood swings are kinda giving me whiplash. - Twilight
  22. Once I stole a pair of red underwear from the department store. My mom wouldn't buy them for me - she said they were Satan's panties! - Miss Congeniality

  27. Hey, I know a joke! A squirrel walks up to a tree and says, "I forgot to store acorns for the winter and now I am dead." Ha! It is funny because the squirrel gets dead. - Up
  28. Avoided us? Honey, look around you. To everyone here who matters, you're vapor, you're spam, a waste of perfectly good yearbook space, and nothing's ever gonna change that.
  29. You said you hated me, and there was something in there about how the only way you'd ever touch me again was if you came down with leprosy.
  30. Forgive me if I get a little emotional, but this is the day every mother dreams of. The day she watches her only daughter put a lock on her bedroom door, to keep her husband out.
  31. My daughter speaks with the wisdom beyond her years. We've all come here with anger in our hearts, but she comes with courage and understanding. From this day forward, if there is to be more killing, it will not start with me.

  38. No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know, for a little bit? I feel like the maid; I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for... for ten minutes! - The Incredibles
  39. You cannot eat fast food. Because it will go down your throat and drop instantly to my thighs! - Freaky Friday (new one)
  40. Sometimes the truth isn't good enough, sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.
  41. Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
  42. Well, good, because that would be outlandish and, uh, fantastic. I'm just not the hero type. Clearly. With this laundry list of character defects, all the mistakes I've made, largely public. - Iron Man
  43. Bless this highly nutritious microwavable macaroni and cheese dinner and the people who sold it on sale. Amen. - Home Alone
  44. Wow, that was really scary and if you don't mind me saying, if that don't work, your breath will certainly get the job done, 'cause you definitely need some Tic Tacs or something 'cause your breath STINKS. - Shrek
  45. When I was growing up, I knew I was different. The other girls were blonde and delicate, and I was a swarthy six-year-old with sideburns.
  46. My family abandoned me. They kinda migrated without me. You should have seen what they did last year. I mean, they got up early, and quickly tied up my hands and feet, and gagged me with a field mouse, and barricaded the cave door, and covered their tracks, and went through water so I'd lose their scent, and... and... who needs them anyway? - Ice Age
  47. Somebody get the license plate number. I have just been violated!
  48. Don't make me hungry. You wouldn't like me when I'm hungry.
  49. It's my party and I'll die if I want do, die if I want to. You will die too, when it happens to you.
  50. We danced the Mamushka while Nero fiddled, we danced the Mamushka at Waterloo. We danced the Mamushka for Jack the Ripper, and now, this Mamushka is for you.

Chick-Fil-A and Sundays

In case none of you guys have caught on, I'm a pretty big fan of Chick-Fil-A. We did have a falling out for a few years when I just wasn't crazy about it. But, alas, we are friends again. I've even found a few recipes to make at home. Like their Chicken Nuggets and their Homemade Lemonade. I am pretty dang addicted to their lemonade.

Well I worked all day today. A very. long. day. And when I work, I usually lose track of what day of the week it is. I was talking to my boyfriend and I mentioned how I was going to pick up some Chick-Fil-A for dinner. And then he uttered those dreadful words.

"But Courtney... it's Sunday."

WHAT????

Why did I have to crave Chick-Fil-A when they are CLOSED?

Not. Fair.

Long Days

Nothing like curling up under my favorite blanket at the end of a LONG day. It's a quilt I made and it is Oh So Comfortable. Today... Work, work, work! 12 hours today. Trying to get a little rest. After 11:30 tonight I will go on call. Meaning they'll call me if I need to come in. I volunteered since it got a little crazy today and they might need help tonight. Plus it's extra hours if I get called in.

What do you do to relax after a long day?

Canned Storage Unit

A LONG time ago, I saw this idea on Pinterest from BHG (couldn't find it on their website anymore) for a storage unit using empty cans.
I really wanted to make one myself.


So I started collecting cans.
Luckily I have a super nifty can opener that makes a clean cut without any sharp edges (it even allows you to put the lid back on if you don't use everything in the can to pop in the fridge!).

I spray painted the cans an olive green color to match my craft room.


Then I simply hot glued the cans together in a pattern I liked.
I had to really coat on the glue though. Maybe a stronger glue would be better.
You have to think about strength too. You don't want them too spread out where they fall apart being heavier on the ends.
I attached hangers on the back and hung it up! You could also just set it on the table or whatever too. Imagine if you made a huge standing shelf of this!


I filled it with things like pens, crochet hooks, paint brushes, glue sticks, etc.


Really simple to make and a great way to organize things!

Simple Tortilla Pizza

I can't remember where I saw it, but I saw a picture of a pizza on a tortilla. Probably on pinterest. It looked pretty good, but I couldn't remember where I had found it. So I decided to attempt to remake it myself! {I think the original was healthy using whole wheat tortillas and stuff, but I went regular. You could totally customize this to your tastes and what you have on hand!}

So here we go... simple tortilla pizza!

I placed a 12 inch tortilla on a cookie sheet.

Then I spread some pizza sauce over it.

Added pepperoni.

Then added some chopped onions... mmm!

Finally finished off with some shredded Italian cheese blend.

I baked it in a 350 degree oven until the cheese was nice and melted {about 10 min}.

So yummy!

I used a pizza slicer to divide it into "pizza slices".

It was so easy to make and a quick, filling meal. For those of you with kiddos out there, it's a great dish they can help with!

Hot Mexican Dip

The other day I tried my hand at making a hot dip.
I had originally wanted a corn dip, but it turned more into a Mexican dip.
It was pretty simple to make and I had everything on hand.

I added a can of creamed corn to a baking dish.

Then a can of rotel tomatoes.

And a can of rinsed black beans.

I cubed 8 oz of cream cheese and added that.

I stirred well. Then I added my seasonings... 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 tsp chili powder.

I popped it into a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until bubbly. I stirred it about half way through.

Within the last few minutes of cooking, I topped it with some shredded cheese until melted. I used a Mexican blend.

Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
