You're Never Fully Dressed Without...

We just purchased and watched the 1982 movie/musical, Annie, with our kids last night. The hubby and I both remember enjoying this movie over and over again when we were kids with all of the singing and dancing.  But little did I remember what great one liners and messages this feel good movie had in it!

Here are two of my favorite lines that Annie and I want you to remember during your day today...

{Annie and dog Sandy with their smiles!}

"You're never fully dressed without a SMILE!" 
"It's what you wear from ear to ear, and NOT from head to toe that matters!"

And if you're having a rough day and things just aren't going your way, you can also remember...

"The sun will come out tomorrow. Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, they'll be SUN!"

Besides the singing and dancing, I had forgotten how extremely hilarious Carol Burnett's character was as the evil drunk orphan owner, Miss Hannigan!  And Bernadette Peters was actually kind of glamorous in her own sleezy way with her crazy bleached blonde curls and china doll face.  If you haven't seen this 30 year old film, you should.  The songs will get stuck in your head and you'll be cheering for little orphan Annie the whole way through the movie.  You'll also find yourself fantasizing about living in Daddy Warbucks mansion like I did when I was a kid.  Hey, I'd take that house today too!!

Have you seen the original film, Annie?? What was your favorite thing about it- singing, dancing, message, wardrobe, or the actors?
