Thanksgiving is all about traditions

It’s that time of year again, when we gather with those we love for a long weekend of overeating, marathon dish washing sessions, playing board games, taking dogs on long walks, drinking margaritas, and revealing embarrassing secrets (usually after drinking the aforementioned margaritas).

Last year’s theme was guilty pleasure songs. This year, we’re sharing our guilty pleasure movies.

How well do you know us? We challenge you to figure out which guilty pleasure belongs to which of us (Laurel, Hyla, Michael, Rebecca, Adam, or Liz). Make just two correct guesses and we’ll send you your choice of either some homemade goat cheese from us or some caramels from Sweet Lolo’s. And while you’re at it, let us know your guilty pleasure movies.

Are any of these on your list?

The Abominable Dr. Phibes
(1971), starring Vincent Price

(1980), starring Olivia Newton-John, Michael Beck, and Gene Kelly

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
(1954), starring Howard Keel, Jane Powell, seven brides and seven brothers

Thoroughly Modern Millie

    Kayte! You got M’s right :-))

    1. Kayte says:

      Do I get one salt caramel for one correct answer? lol I didn’t do very well, did I? I can’t wait to see the answers! None of these is on my list. Here’s ours (silly movie preferences, ones we watch when they come on, right?), want to see if you can guess: Mark, Kayte, Matt, Alex

      Singing in the Rain
      The Wizard of Oz
      Rocky Horror Picture Show
      A Christmas Story

      If you pair them up and get them all right, the prize is some of my homemade Toffee.

      1. Rebecca says:

        You most certainly get a salt caramel :-)) Want to give it one more shot to see if you can get a second now that you know one is right?

        As for yours, here’s my guess:

        Kayte – Singing in the Rain (one of my favorites, so I’m hoping it’s yours)
        Mark – A Christmas Story
        Matt – Rocky Horror Picture Show
        Alex – The Wizard of Oz

        Did I get even one???

      2. Kayte says:

        One more try, lol.

        Hyla – Millie
        Rebecca – Austen Powers
        Laurel – Xanadu
        Liz – 7 Brides for 7 Brothers
        Adam – Mr. Holland

        Yes, you got one right, Alex’s is The Wizard of Oz! Want to try again? I bet you can get it on the second try!

        Guess we are just going to need to spend more time getting to know each other!

      3. Rebecca says:

        Ok, now you have two right (Michael and Laurel)! Caramels or goat cheese, my dear?

        My try #2:

        Kayte – A Christmas Story
        Mark – Rocky Horror
        Matt – Signing in the Rain


  3. Kayte says:

    Okay, just going one at a time here…at this rate I will be forever guessing! lol.
    Rebecca – Mr. Holland
    Hyla – Austen Powers
    Liz – Millie
    Adam – 7 Brides for 7 Brothers

    You missed on all of ours.
    Mark – Singing in the Rain
    Kayte – Rocky Horror Picture Show
    Matt – A Christmas Story

    I will send you a consolation prize for playing along, it will be a surprise….lol!

    1. Rebecca says:

      Wow am I bad guesser! I’m pleased as punch, though, to know you love RHPS!
