-Did you know the 9th Doctor [Christopher Eccleston] plays the bad guy in Thor 2? What a shock!
-Getting prepped and organized for my 12 Days of Christmas Crafting! It’s coming up so fast! The 14th of December is the first day of crafty Christmas posts, if I can get my stuff together!
-Thor 2 was pretty gosh darned awesome. The acting was phenomenal, the characters were well-developed, and the comic book lover in me was seriously digging the fight scenes.
-Speaking of movies, I LOVED Catching Fire. Much better than the first Hunger Games film. I really enjoyed the novels, so it wasn’t too much of a surprise, but I really felt like Jennifer Lawrence upped her game in this film. And Peeta was fantastic, as usual. =)
-PUTTING UP MY CHRISTMAS TREE!!! Finally. Mitch wouldn’t let me put it up until after Thanksgiving. haha.
-Thanksgiving is in a week, you guys. Doesn’t it feel like this year is slipping between our fingers?!
-Finished my Christmas shopping already. BAM. You’re jelly, I can tell.
-The hatred I feel for myself after eating fatty foods. French fries, you used to make me feel great, now you make me feel gross. What happened to us?
-HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE COMES OUT TONIGHT!!! We have tickets for the 8pm show! =)
-My dad’s birthday is on Thanksgiving this year. Double whammy! =) I’m excited to get some family time in!

-I know it’s early to be excited… BUT CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!
-Dizzying sinus headaches that cause my concentration to waiver.
-Meetings at work where I feel like I’m not getting work done. I know that my being there is helpful, but it makes me feel so guilty to be somewhat lethargic rather than busy all day!
-Missing my dog when I’m at work. Seriously… obsessed much?
-Spending last weekend at my parent’s house. =) It was nice to be back home. I’m super ready for Christmas and the holidays and cozy family time.

-Trying to pack last minute… packing is fun AND a hassle. haha. Hope we didn’t forget anything!
