boyworld, on the road to adventure...

...& a mom 'secret'!

Little Man (aka lil' jim) & his road crew (that would be his dad & i) are on location in charlotte, NC for the great southern snow (not really, but that is what he thinks ;)...please don't tell) with photos to follow, hopefully later today or tomorrow! maybe he'll even live-blog this thing (while his dad & i are giving eternal gratitude to God for 4 wheel drive vehicles!)...
while we are behavin' all weather-channel-like, Big Brois trying out the college lifestylenearby with Baby Girl for the weekend.
who is having more fun...? (please don't answer that!)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
notes from the road...or, i've got a 'secret'!!!

15. when you travel with boyworld, it really is one big adventure. these guys are up for almost anything (i say 'almost' because i am with them...if they were alone, it would probably be anything!), so when we see things along the way...like roadsigns that read 'crew'...well, hey! they think that means them. staying in the spirit of boyworld adventure, i turn the vehicle in the general direction of the arrows & suddenly we are 'the crew'...barreling down a country road...
what did we find???

oh, the 'secret'...

the day's set for filming 'the secret life of bees'....i mean, OMG!!!! one of my all-time favorite reads!!in production. in the middle of nowhere.(remember that cute pink house!) to be released in '09. starring queen latifah, dakota fanning & alicia keyes. there we were...in the middle of it with a very nice policeman who had no idea why i could hardly contain my excitement~~ he simply was out of the loop regarding how profoundly awesome this book is! but i told him. & in turn, he did not escort us out of the production area. thank you, kind sir!! you made my day!

so, there you have it!
everyone should be so lucky as to travel with boyworld!! i love these guys!!

You came upon quite an adventure, and I completely get why it was so exciting. I read and enjoyed the book as well.

I soooo wanted to be able to click on that photo of the film shoot and see what was going on. I loved that book as well. Great casting I would say.

I could practically smell that bread you were baking BTW.

If you email me with your email address, I will give you some flea market ideas. You must already know about the one in Rome.

Read this book a while back. What a cast!! I will definitely be on the lookout for the pink house.

Wow, I didn't know the book was being made into a movie. One of my favorite reads, too. What a serendipitous day for lucky you! I'll also watch for the pink house when the movie comes out.
