November 27th. I love it.

First up this week, Thanksgiving. I love it. This is the first year in a while that I’ve spent the day with family. I flew to NC and spent a few days relaxing and eating. So much eating. We had a smoked turkey, green bean casserole, and I even made two pecan pies. The leftovers were just as good.

I love it.

Next up, the mountains. I love it. While on North Carolina this week, we stayed at this awesome house on a vineyard. Sitting on the back porch gave you a great view of the mountains. The house was really nice too and we watched a ton of movies and drank a lot of coffee.

I love it.

Finally, Christmas music. I love it. It’s finally okay for me to listen to my favorite genre of music! I enjoyed it during my flights yesterday and today I watched my first official Christmas movie of the year, Snow Day. Okay, not a traditional Christmas movie but one of my favorites. 

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

I love it.

November 20th. I love it.

Totally forgot to write last week, friends. So sorry.

First up, my new apartment. My last apartment had two bedrooms and two bathrooms which was nice when Bud was still here, but I couldn’t afford it anymore. Last week I moved into a studio and it’s the perfect size for all of my stuff! Now all I need to do is get used to it and start sleeping again and I’m good!

I love it.

Next up, sales. I love it. I went to Walmart yesterday and scored big with Disney Infinity characters! They’re usually $13 but I got them for $5 each! And I even got DI2 for $15. The game has been discontinued so everything is gonna go away fast!

I love it.

Finally, Room. I love it. It was my favorite movie up for an Oscar last year and I really wanted to read the book. I got it from the library and tore through it in 2 days. It might be my favorite book this year.

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

I love it.

November 6th. I love it.

It’s been busy, people, but worth it!

First up this week, NaNoWriMo. I love it. For those that don’t know, that stands for “National Novel Writing Month.” The goal is to write about 1,700 words per day for a month and by the 30th of November, you have a 50,000 word novel. I, being a writer of middle grade novels, have set my sights for 1,000 words a day. So far I’ve kept my pace and I feel really good about my idea. What I have found is that having a group of people keeping you on track. My brother started an email chain where a bunch of us report back everyday. It’s what I need to stay focused. And we all need the accountability.

I love it.

Next up, mermaids. I love them! Yesterday, I as a 26 year old kidult (get it) drove downtown to the aquarium so I could see mermaids. Real. Live. Mermaids. So, they may have been ladies dressed up as mermaids, but they were cool none the less. They were even in the shark tank! The place was jam packed and I was probably the only adult unaccompanied with a child. I’m okay with that.

I love it.

Finally, anniversaries. I love it. Bud and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary on Thursday. I let him his presents while I was in NC last weekend but he opened them over Skype. He sent me a dozen roses. I don’t know where he gets his flowers from, but they always look so pretty and last for a very long time. I love him.

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

I love it.
