Hello! Earlier this week, it was my sweet boyfriend, Johnny’s, thirty-first birthday. We celebrated over the weekend by going to a social distance bonfire hosted by a friend on Saturday. Then, on Sunday, we day drank and enjoyed a Tom Hank’s movie marathon that we officially dubbed with the name “Hanks For The Memories”.
On day one of what we referred to as “Timber Top’s First Annual Film Festival”, we watched That Thing You Do, Cast Away, Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, and Toy Story 1 and 2. About halfway between our first flick, Johnny turned to me and said “this was the best idea we’ve ever had” and I have to say that I agree.
Not only was “Hanks For The Memories” the most inspired thing I’ve came up with in a while but we each enjoyed movies we had never seen before. For example, Johnny has never seen Cast Away and I have only seen that one and Saving Private Ryan. I know, I am just as shocked as everyone that I have never seen Toy Story or Forrest Gump!
I think Johnny ended up enjoying Cast Away, though, judging by the new best friend he’s snuggled up with:
Despite not going totally crazy for ringing in my boyfriend’s big day, we made it work in our own way and ended up having the best time. Hanks For The Memories, babe. ❤
How did you celebrate your birthday this year? What is your favorite Tom Hanks flick? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
