Happy December! I can't believe how fast this year is going. Blah blah blah! I have had so many ideas lately of blog topics, but they all tend to get lost in my brain at some point before I get to a computer, and then when I get home, it's all "ooh, Bejeweled Blitz!" or "ooh, knitting!" or "ooh, Navy Seals!" and it's a fail. Therefore, I haven't updated in a while. So, here's what I've been up to:
*went to see Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part 1. I enjoyed it quite a bit, especially the more and more I think about it. We went to see it at midnight here in town, and the place was just crawling with college students. Almost everyone was dressed in costume, either as a Hogwarts student, a Death Eater, or... a house elf. It was pretty bizarre. Saw our friend's name in the credits for his visual effects work, which was awesome. Is it July yet??
*went to in-laws for Thanksgiving, which was super fun. The actual T-Day was delicious and relaxing, up until the dog decided to take a little neighborhood excursion all by her lonesome at dusk. Not so good when you're a BLACK LAB, mutt. She was found quickly and successfully, only to start being barfy a few hours later. Dog decided to eat... something unknown on her trip... it was gross. On Friday, Hubs, Hubs' BFF, SIL, and I stayed up not so late (though it felt REALLY late) playing King's Court and opening champagne with knives (note: everything about this video cracks me up bc this is EXACTLY what we did) and (they were) drinking 4Loko. The next morning, Hubs' BFF stated that no 4Loko would ever pass his lips again. That's probably a good plan.
*Wednesday, Hubs and I made the trek to Richmond to see Dashboard Confessional (my choice!). 10 years ago, he released his first album, The Swiss Army Romance. He played the entire thing, just him and his guitar like the good old days. Then, he played a few other gems, and personally, I loved it. Singing along with Chris and everyone else in the crowd made me feel 19 all over again. Love.
Now, just looking forward to the holidays. Possibly time to relax. Possibly time to run around with arms waving. Possibly going to stand arms akimbo, left foot forward.
