If week 3 crept up on me, weeks 4 & 5 just ran right over me and kept running. Apologies for the delay in recaps, but I just didn’t know what hit me!

Week 4’s Sub-Theme was “Not a Member of the 1%” Now I do realize that July 24’s Over 40 Years Old topic doesn’t quite work within the theme considering the 1% typically consists of rich, white men over 40, but we’re going with it! Week 5’s was “The Supporting Act.”

It’s the finale of a truly fun month (for me, at least)! I hope everyone who participated enjoyed themselves too! I truly appreciate the great turnout for the first challenge AND blogathon that I’ve had the pleasure of hosting. I admit, I took on a bit more than I probably should have for numero uno, but I think it worked out! I made some new Twitter (and blogger) pals in the process and have a bunch of films to add to my must watch list.

So here it is, the final recap!  If you have any blog posts to add, please post in the comments and I will add you.

Without further ado:
