MONDAY MOVIE MEME
The Bumbles have been thinking about building additions on homes and the satisfaction that comes with the end result. Sure the process can be stressful, long and expensive. But when your home or new room or other building or item is finished, pride in that thing you helped create is quite satisfying. Films often involve something new being built by the characters. Share on your blog movies that involve new things being built, linking them back to The Bumbles Blog. If you don't have a blog, list your choices in the comment section of The Bumbles Movie post!
