Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One.
I haven't been as vocal about my HP love as I have about my Twilight addiction, but let me say that if it weren't for the HP series, I never would have bothered to read Twilight. I've loved the books and movies since 2002. I didn't want to blog about it because frankly, the fact that we are months away from the final movie is heartbreaking. I did see Part 1 on 11/19 in IMAX, and yes tickets were purchased about a month beforehand and I totally rocked a Dumbledore's Army t-shirt. The movie...well the word amazeballs comes to mind. I loved every single frame and laughed hard, then cried harder. I will probably do a whole week of fangirling posts leading up to the final film, because frankly this series deserves it. Oh and don't even get me started on my ginger love for all things Weasley.
My friend Jenny made me a virtual aunt.
I think it's been established that I am so much cooler online. In fact, most of my friends live inside my computer. One of these friends is Jenny and she is one of the awesomest people I know. She's strong, incredibly funny, heartbreakingly candid, and also happens to be a giant book nerd just like me. Well just recently, she brought three little lives into the world and made me an honorary aunt! To say that I was excited beyond measure is a vast understatement. This girl has made me cry more happy tears this month than I ever thought possible! My virtual nieces and nephew are still in the NICU but doing so well and I can't wait for her and her husband to be able to bring them home so I can watch how they grow up. I may or may not have started crying while writing this...that really is just how I roll.
Love to eat turkey...ok well not really since I'm a vegetarian and no I didn't eat Tofurkey because quite frankly a big round ball of compressed soy does not seem appetizing in the slightest. I did eat two meals, a smaller one with my mother and another larger one with my father and his side of the family, both of which were nice. I ate nothing but sides, but tried not to overload on carbs and I only had one dessert which was my aunt's red velvet cake (made from scratch) which basically made me thankful for being born. Dessert kind of owns me...I'm not proud but there it is. I took NO pictures on Thanksgiving! I'm so full of nostalgia fail. During the weekend the princess and I went to see Tangled which as so freaking adorable! I loved that it was marketed to both boys and girls and yet it still had a lot of the Disney magic woven through it. Mandy Moore has the perfect princess voice and it was my first time seeing a Disney movie in 3D which frankly...didn't make that much of a difference (except for the $2 extra I had to pay)
So that was my month. NaNo, the big hair change (which I'm still recovering from), all balanced with my normal routine of mothering, working, and not cleaning. It's been pretty hectic thus far and now getting ready for the holidays is going to be even more insane!
So how was your November?
