December 13th. I love it.

It’s almost Christmas!

First up this week, Christmas lights. I love it. Brian and I have a tradition where we go to see the lights at Lafreniere Park. The display is very cool and very fun to walk through. This year they added a light up pirate ship in the pond! So cool! Very festive!

I love it.

Next up, Nintendogs. I love it. Since things didn’t work out with Arthur, I decided a digital dog was the way to go. It’s actually really fun! I have a golden named Cooper and a beagle named Jasper. They are both really good at the disc competitions. If you’re like me and want a dog but don’t have the lifestyle for one, you should check this game out.

I love it.

Finally, celebrating Christmas. Since next weekend is going to be busy for us, Brian and I exchanged gifts last night. He is so wonderful! He got me Star Wars pajamas, a griddle (which I used twice today), and a sweatshirt that I’ve been asking for. He’s such a good listener! I love him!

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.

  

December 6th. I love it.

Hooray for love!

First up this week, “Newsies.” I love it! Brian bought tickets to one of my favorite musicals for our anniversary last month and Friday was the day of the show. I was so excited and the show didn’t disappoint. They changed up the storyline a little bit from the movie, but everyone in the play was so talented and it was funny and sad and wonderful all at once! I’m so glad Brian likes to go to the theater too!

I love it.

Next up, Christmas movies. I love it. This week I took the liberty of recording a bunch of things on TV to watch later and I marked a lot of stuff ¬†on Netflix. So far I’ve seen a lot of my favorites (most of the classics), Pete’s Christmas, Pooh’s Christmas, and The Grinch. Next on my list? “Christmas Vacation.” It’s my favorite.

I love it.

Finally, lazy Saturdays. I love it. I had off yesterday so I was bound and determined not to leave the house. I did that very successfully. I did get my workout in (in the superhero room), showered and got right back into pajamas. Throw in some college football, a nap, and movies? Perfect day if you ask me.

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.

November 29th. I love it.

Hooray for love!

First up this week, Thanksgiving dinner. I love it. Last year, Brian convinced me to help him make a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, potatoes, green bean casserole, and pie. Considering I usually just ate pizza, I gave it a try and it was totally worth it. Now that we have the tradition, Brian and I cooked another big meal (with lots of leftovers). We ate until we were both just laying on the floor in a food coma. Again, totally worth it. The best thing about this year though was celebrating with our animals!

I love it.

Next up, Disney Infinity 3.0. I love it. I’ve been holding out on getting this game for a while because it’s expensive and I don’t like how you have to buy an all new set every time a newer version comes out. Well, I changed my mind once I saw that it was on sale for more than $30 off at Game Stop. This is by far my favorite version. It seems much more user friendly but still just as fun!

I love it.

Finally, ¬†decorating for Christmas. I love it. You bet that Brian and I moved right into Christmas! It’s our favorite! Last year we didn’t decorate, but this year, we needed to. It just seemed like the right thing to do. We bought a (fake) tree, stockings, and lots of lights and decorated yesterday. I’m definitely in the holiday spirit now!

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.

November 15th. I love it.

Another week. Another batch of love.

First up this week, Chutes and Ladders. I love it. Brian wasn’t feeling very well this week, so I bought him Chutes and Ladders… and beat him at it best of three. I forgot how cut throat games like that can be!

I love it.

Next up, the dog park. I love it. Today was our first trip to the dog park with Arthur and overall, he did a good job. He sniffed the other dogs and people, but as usual wasn’t interested in playing with them. Hopefully the more we socialize him, the better he’ll do.

I love it.

Finally, The Addams Family Musical. I love it. This months show at Rivertown was the Addams Family and overall I liked it. I wasn’t a huge fan of the storyline but all of the performers were excellent as usual! 

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great. 

I love it. 

 

November 8th. I love it.

Crazy love.

First up this week, dinner cruises. I love it. This week, Brian and I celebrated our one year anniversary (yay) with a dinner cruise on the Mississippi. It was fabulous! Amazing food, great music, perfect weather… it was so nice!

I love it.

Next up. Le Pavillon. I love it. This hotel is downtown and it’s my absolute favorite! Not only is it super fancy, but they also serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches every night. For free. What? Brian and I stayed there for our anniversary but after the big dinner we had on the boat, I was too full for my favorite food. We also got our room upgraded for free (aren’t we fancy?) and took the luxury of sleeping in in those super comfy hotel beds.

I love it.

Finally, making butterfly friends. I love it. Again, for our anniversary, Brian and I took our first trip to the Insectarium. The bugs were cool, but the butterfly garden was the best! I actually had a stow-away ride along with us for a little while. Apparently butterflies love hair (and I have a lot of it). I had to be “de-butterflied” before I left by the nice lady watching the butterflies. I wish I could have taken it home!

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.

November 1st. I love it.

I can’t believe it’s November.

First up this week, napping. I love it. I probably say this a lot, but it’s so true. I remember when I was so anxious all the time that there was no way I could fall alders. That is not a problem anymore as evidenced by the naps I can take laying in the middle of my living room floor or with all of the lights on in my room. It even better when there are two animals snuggled up with me.

I love it.

Next up, Goosebumps. I love it. Growing up, I loved the books so I was pretty pumped to see the movie. It was actually really good!

I love it.

Finally, pecan candles.  I love it. I splurged at Walmart and this candle? Smells so good! It’s like a pecan pie is baking in the oven. Mm mm!

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great. 

I love it.
