Happy Father’s Day – Top 5 Best Daddy Daughter Movies

Today is one of the most important days of the year, where we celebrate our fathers.  I for one am the absolute luckiest girl in the world because I can confidently say that my dad beats everyone else’s.  My dad is my very best friend in the world; I tell him everything, from what I’m learning in school, to the latest gossip in my life, and to even all my boy stories.  I can also say that I feel very lucky to have a father who is young, but most importantly will always be young at heart.  He is the bravest man I know because not only will he face plant a million times while mountain biking, he will also gladly sit on the couch and watch Mean Girls with me – and enjoy it.  The older I become, and the more I experience each day I can relate to my dad more and more, and we are able to have deep conversations that I think are helping shape who I am.  So this post is dedicated to my amazing dad, whom I love with all my heart!


Another reason why I love Father’s Day is because there really is no relationship that compares to one between a father and a daughter.  It is a special bond that can’t really be described and whenever I watch a movie centered around that relationship I get all emotional and embarrassed – typical.  So with that, here is a list of the best father daughter movies!

What A Girl Wants

Despicable Me

I Am Sam

The Parent Trap

Father of the Bride


Completing a Bucket List Item Unintentionally

Pleasant surprises can occur at any time and any place.

Two weeks ago while traveling in Seville, Spain, my group and I were visiting the Saint Mary Cathedral.  While walking around I took in all of the wonder and beauty of this intricately designed place of worship.

Then our tour guide proudly said “The Saint Mary Cathedral is the 3rd largest cathedral in Europe, next to St. Peter’s Basilica and St. Pauls.”

Thinking nothing of it at first, my mind did a double take thought and I suddenly realized that I have visited all three of those cathedrals!

Two years ago I went on a Euro Trip to London, Paris, Florence and Rome and visited the two largest cathedrals.  I suddenly was overwhelmed with excitement of the thought that I could cross something off of my grand life bucket list – even though that had not originally been on it!

1. St. Peter’s Basilica – Vatican in Rome Italy

Hey, you learn something everyday huh? 

Parachute Pants

So after successfully surviving my first week in Spain there are many things I have learned.  Besides the amazing architecture, beautiful landscape, and delicious food there is something else I have also noticed; some of the latest Spanish fashion trends, which I have to say are a little out there.  However one of my favorite clothing items that are being sold all over Granada are parachute pants!!





Not only do these look crazy comfy, but they also come in some really unique patterns!  They sell them really cheap in the Arab markets and I am definitely buying at least 3 pairs!
