Download Little Fockers 2010 Movie Wallpaper Poster

Little Fockers aka Meet the Little Fockers, known as Meet the Parents: Little Fockers in the United Kingdom and Australia, is a 2010 American comedy film and a sequel to both Meet the Parents (2000) and Meet the Fockers (2004) starring Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Blythe Danner, Teri Polo, Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand. It is the first film in the series that was not directed by Jay Roach and was instead directed by Paul Weitz. However, it was produced by Roach. It is also the first film in the series not to have Randy Newman compose the music, instead being replaced by relative newcomer Stephen Trask. It was announced on August 24, 2010, that Dustin Hoffman would reprise his role as Greg's father, Bernie Focker. In addition to the original cast, Little Fockers stars Jessica Alba, Laura Dern and Harvey Keitel.


Over the weekend we went to Tennessee for a little vacation. A few days before we left, I googled smoky mountain cabins, and found this place. We ended up staying in a private cabin called Woods and Waters, which was unbelievable. You never know what you're getting into when you reserve something online, but when we saw it, we were thrilled. Charming, spacious, king bed, hot tub, fireplace, two porches, candles, BBQ grill, kitchen, waffle iron, wine glasses, and total privacy. And it smelled like cedar and pine trees, with a faint hint of woodsmoke thrown in. Dreamy.

We slept late every day, cooked bacon and eggs, drank coffee on the porch, and went over to the national park (10 minutes away, and no entrance fee!) to hike for the rest of each day. Have a look:

I highly recommend it.

Hey, I just learned that literally means "Go with God." Seems obvious now. Nice. I'm taking a blogging break over the long weekend. Later, dudes.

Conclusion of the mushroom epic

For those on the edge of your seats following the progress of our mushrooms, here's the final installment. Last weekend they turned into four of these pizzas, with brie, tomatoes, green onion, and garlic butter drizzled over them. Yum. I used this recipe (scroll down to Shiitake and Brie Pizzas), which is from another mushroom log retailer. I think it took about 7-10 days from start to finish to grow these. Now our log is resting before its next crop.

(Side note: I found this set of dinner plates and little matching salad plates under an inch of dust in a second-hand store down the street. They were stacked on the floor. I'm so glad I bothered to bend over and swipe a finger along the edge. I love this pattern.)

Spiffed up onesies

These are the results of a recent baby gift-making session. My first time to applique something. Here's how I did it, in case you want to do it, too. But I bet there are lots of really good tutorials out there somewhere if you need step-by-step pictures.
1. I walked up to the cutting counter at Joann fabrics and asked for something that would let me iron one fabric onto another and make it stick there. They stared at me blankly for a moment, then gave me a chunk of Heat 'n' Bond.
2. I kept the Heat 'n' Bond under my bed for 5 months. (This step is optional.)
3. I washed the onesies. And dried them, too.
4. I roughly cut out a small piece of pretty fabric containing the design I wanted, and a smaller-yet piece of HNB that would fit under the design, then ironed the HNB onto the fabric chunk, following the directions that came with it.
5. I cut out the shape I wanted.
6. I pulled off the paper backing, positioned it on my garment, and ironed it on.
7. I zigzagged around the edges with my machine. Done.

An artist or an ape?

Take a fun little quiz to see if you can tell whether each painting was created by man or monkey. I did okay: just one wrong, where I gave an ape too much credit.

Partake of free fonts

I learned of Brazilian designer Eduardo Recife from The Scoop. He has designed several distressed typefaces and has generously made many of them available for free downloading right here. Click the name of any typeface and you'll see a groovy poster design featuring that font and a link to download it. "Porcelain" is used above.
