Catch Me If You Can

by Meghann on July 16, 2012

Watched an oldie, but a goodie this evening.

Can you believe Derek has never seen Catch Me If You Can? The movie has been coming up in conversation lately, so he figured it was about time he did. (We started watching the White Collar series and people seem to always connect the two.)

I forgot how good of a movie it is. I also didn’t realize how many up-and-coming leading ladies were in it.

And I’m sure I’m leaving a few out. I guess that was THE movie to be in back in the day to guarantee a solid career in the future. Good for them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Before we settled down with the movie, I made some jambalaya for dinner.


Nothing fancy here.

  • boil-in-a-bag brown rice
  • black beans
  • okra
  • carrots
  • red onion
  • tomato
  • shrimp
  • creole seasoning
  • sriracha


Too much sriracha! My mouth was on FIRE!


Otherwise it was pretty good.

Earlier in the afternoon I had some mixed nuts and dried cherries as a snack.


Dessert was an ice cream cone.


And now I’m off to bed.

Good Night!

I love that movie! It has great music, and I love the way Leo says “Frank.”*

I love that movie! I’ve been working on a list of “must-see” movies for my boyfriend. He hasn’t seen ANYTHING! I guess it’s nice to have a blank slate and be able to watch all of my favorite movies again. ๐Ÿ™‚

However, he has been mad when I slip in a musical here and there. (He was pissed when I took him to see Rock of Ages…he had no idea!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Sneaky Erin…)

Definitely one of my favorite movies! I also really like White Collar. I never watched it ’til recently – the previews had been looking good so I’ve been streaming it on Netflix. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have never seen that movie, pretty surprising because I was big on Leo back in the day ๐Ÿ˜› That jambalaya looks good! Do you use fresh or frozen okra?

They’re fresh. They’re currently in season in Florida.

That was a great movie. Leo is a great actor, too. And “Back in the day??” It’s only 10 years old! ๐Ÿ™‚
