Welcome to the place where I share what I’m up to each week and a bit of my real life outside of the blog.

I’m currently reading Get A Life Chloe Brown. I’m only a few chapters in, but I really like it so far. It’s light, fun, and easy to read. Exactly the kind of book I need in my hands right now. Granted it’s definitely a bit predictable but that doesn’t make it any less fun.
Curling brush hairdryers. All in ones. I’m really thinking about getting this Revlon one. Has anyone used it? Thoughts?
All the trippy movies. I’ve had to break it down even more.
We took our 5 year old to see Frozen 2 yesterday. I have oh so many thoughts. It wasn’t a bad movie, but it lacked that defining Let It Go moment that defined the world in 2013. There was no real shining power ballad that made me say, “YASSS GIRL.”
Instead, there were a bunch of songs and moments that were almost there, but just missed the mark. And the whole movie was trippy. Spirits, a fire chameleon, a story line that involved water having memory and a horse made of the water’s memory. Oh and Anna being way too obsessed with Elsa. I wanted Elsa to go all Regina George on Anna and call her out for being so obsessed with her, but alas. That didn’t happen outside of my mind.
And can we talk about Kristoff’s song? Holy hell. SO. MANY. REINDEER. In boybandesque background singer style. It was a sight that really did leave me questioning whether or not I was tripping too hard on cold meds or something. I loved this article about it, btw.
That said, I was fully engrossed and invested in the movie. I never wanted to walk out of the theater and was fairly invested in figuring out the rather convoluted story. So I guess the movie did its job.
The Knight Before Christmas
Let me just say that this was the best worst thing I have ever watched. If you are into ridiculous Christmas movies, run- don’t walk- to your tv and stream this Netflix original starring Vanessa Hudgens and some British guy that really needs a haircut. This movie was a thoroughly entertaining albeit completely and utterly ridiculous romp that involved time traveling romance, an old crone, a sword and some really terrible decisions on the part of Vanessa Hudgens’s character. Can we talk about how she let the man with a sword in her home? And how she let him take the sword along with him when they went out and about.
But the worst of all the bad decisions? Definitely handing a guy claiming to be a 13th century knight the keys to her car and letting him drive it. WHAT IS THAT ABOUT? HAVE YOU BEEN PARTAKING IN SOME OF THE SAME MOOD ALTERING SUBSTANCES THAT THE CREATORS OF FROZEN 2 HAVE BEEN?
Rounding out the list of ridiculously trippy things I’ve watched this week is Santa Girl. This movie involves Santa’s daughter needing to find herself before entering into an arranged marriage with Jack Frost’s son. So Santa’s daughter goes to college along with a very perky annoying elf to keep an eye on her and -spoiler alert- falls in love with a boy who is not Jack Frost’s son. There are some twists and turns and ridiculous parts of this movie that are good for a laugh. But it’s highly debatable whether or not you are laughing with the movie or at the movie.
We randomly made cauliflower schwarma one night last week. I’ve never had schwarma but we’ve always wanted to try it thanks to the scene at the end of Avengers. It was interesting. Also, been loving hummus lately even though its the wrong season. Go figure.
Also all the hot beverages. Been downing these chai teas like they’re going out of style. And I have a few more hot drinks headed your way.
Honestly, still in survival mode. The kids got my husband sick so we are short one functional adult, which is always fun. And the start of the holiday season and approaching anniversary of my son’s death has me all turned inside out and missing him in new ways. Some day I’ll be a whole person again, right?
That’s it for me this week! What are you up to? Leave me a comment and let me know!
