Joining in Hallie’s great linkup for some Wednesday favorites!

The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies. Our family watched it a lot growing up, but we’re a big Catholic family so isn’t that a rule or something? Once some of my siblings and I even dressed up and “performed” one of the songs for my parents- we also might or might not have dressed up one of my younger brothers as Gretel…

Anyways, a Pandora station that I sometimes play at home spins out some of the tunes from TSOM, so I thought it would be fun to “show” Evie the songs she’s familiar with by watching bits of the movie with her.

She is a big fan of the musical scenes, regularly singing an adorably off-key “Good-bye! Good-bye! Good-bye!” during bed-time, and requests to watch “Kids” on the daily. Also, that 9ish minute long Do-Re-Mi sequence? Wonderful. I find I can get a lot done in 9 minutes!

So here are some fun movie-related things I’ve found on the ‘net:

Someone actually makes and sells the “curtain dresses” on Etsy!



I’d love to frolic in the Alps someday, but for now I could settle with looking at this colorful print:


I’m not gonna lie, I’ve always wanted to learn the dance to the “Good-bye” song:



I enjoyed this fun and easy read written by the actress who played Liesl. It gives you a glimpse into the making of the movie in the movie, and describes the impact the movie’s success had in the lives of many of the actors.
