Hey, friends, hey!
I have had the craziest week! I went on a blogger trip to Disney World last week and I feel like I’ve been playing catch up ever since! How is it that a few days away takes weeks to make up for? I don’t understand that math at all.
I’ll share more details on the Disney trip in the next couple of weeks, but in the meantime, I wanted to tell you that if you ever get the opportunity to go to the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, DO IT!!
We had the MOST fun watching the parade, the Hocus Pocus show in front of the castle, and sampling all the fun Disney-themed treats. It really was a magical night!
I am currently working on figuring out how to make recipe videos to post to Facebook. I’ve put it off for FOREVER, but it’s becoming increasingly obvious that I need to get my act together. So…I want to know. What do you like in a recipe video? What makes you want to watch? What annoys you? Are they actual helpful or do you just watch them because they’re fun?
Working on the internet, man. Things can’t ever just stay the same.
My husband and I have a weekly date night and have seen quite a few movies in the last few months or so! We saw War Dogs which I surprisingly, LOVED. Warning for crude language and some sexy scenes, but OH MY GOSH SO INTERESTING! The fact that it’s actually a true story blew my mind. Keep in mind that if you don’t care for Jonah Hill, you won’t like this movie. He’s crazy obnoxious in it (but again…it’s central to the plot, which I really enjoyed).
The Light Between Oceans — BREATHTAKING. Warning if you’ve suffered infant loss…this is probably not the movie for you. There were scenes that I had to look away from because they were SO heartbreaking, but it was a really good and well-made film. Also, haaaayyyy Michael Fassbender…
Sully — inspiring, entertaining, thought provoking. But do NOT watch if you’re going to be flying soon! I made that mistake and instantly regretted it.
Snowden — long, boring at parts, but important and really interesting (and at times, maddening and upsetting). I’ve always been one of those, “I have nothing to hide, what do I care” types, but after watching this, I spent a lot of time thinking about the bigger picture and the danger of a government that isn’t held accountable by it’s citizens. Definitely watch it, but don’t go tired. You won’t make it!
We just saw the above trailer when we went to see Snowden and I cannot WAIT. I have to see this movie! Miles Teller looks like he does an incredible job in it. I seriously think I already love it. Kind of reminds me of Million Dollar Baby in some ways.
I just LOVE all the new books, movies, and television shows that premier every Fall, don’t you?? It’s my favorite!
Speaking of…I finally watched This is Us and oh my gosh, you guys — I can’t handle how much I love this show! I cried twice and spent the entire next day thinking about that ending. It’s rare that a twist ending really satisfies me instead of ticking me off, but this did just that. And the fact that I KNEW that a twist was coming and still didn’t see it is amazing!
What have you been up to this week? Tell me, tell me!
