.... I have never listened to more talk radio or to shows about politics in my life since lastTuesday. I'm so curious to hear what the latest news is & what everyone thinks. I need to make the switch over to my Christmas music to ease the stress in my mind.
... Speaking of Christmas music, I cant wait to put in my two favorite Christmas CD's. Casting Crowns "Peace on Earth" & Josh Groban, "Noel" ... they will stay in my player until New Years Day.
... saw a post that said, "Love trumping hate involves a lot more assault & arson than I expected"... that made me laugh. & I figure laughing is better than crying at the reactions of some people this past week.
... I legit cried - like CRIED - real tears - when I saw the Beauty & the Beast movie trailer. It just feels so unreal to me to see it come to life. Looks so magical to me. 120 days still to go... but who's counting? #methatswho
... There are so many movies coming out I want to see lately! I'm taking my nieces to see Trolls this weekend, but also can't wait to see Fantastic Beasts... & I think that new movie, Allied, with Brad Pitt looks good & nerve wrecking see if his wife is a spy! Also want to see Arrival with Amy Adams, because she's won me over for everything since Enchanted... & of course, Moana... Who doesnt love a good Disney movie during the holidays?
... I still haven't' switched over my closet from spring/summer to fall/winter. It's in the 70's today!!! The craziest fall I've remembered in a long time. I need to get it switched over though because I see 40's for the high next week. After having all this warm weather, those 40's are going to feel FRIGID - I just know it.
... So the SUPER MOON was in full effect this week. ... & I didnt really notice any difference than any other bright full moon.
... I take that back.. I did notice a difference - that I THINK had to do with the moon. I had the WORST headache yesterday. Like migraine level in the back of my head. Found out my mom had the same thing. I know weather changes can trigger headaches. Can Super Moons?
... I'm trying to cut back on my sparkling seltzer water intake. I'm now convinced this is a part of what's tearing my crowns off. I read that you would have to drink a LOT of the carbonated seltzer water to get an effect on the enamel of your teeth. When I looked up what they consider "a lot"... yeah.... that's me. I do drink a lot of it. So I'm making the switch to tea. & now my teeth may stay in, but they'll be stained. My teeth can't win for anything.
... I'm still loving the show This is Us. I honestly laugh & tear up at least one time each per show.
What's on your mind today?
I'm also loving This is us (as is my husband), thanks for turning us on to it.ReplyDelete
I have been very much into politics too this year and I can barley stand the media anymore. As a former journalism major it just makes me sick!
I was really excited about the super moon, but then went to photograph it and was like "uhh did I miss it cause this looks like a regular moon...." so I ended up not taking any pictures of it. lolReplyDelete
The super moon looked like a regular old moon over here too. The only difference I know is people brought their Crazy out in full force. No thanks. Keep that to yourself.ReplyDelete
The super moon was so amazing but it totally brought out all the cray cray's. I love love This is Us, such a great show.ReplyDelete
i still haven't watched this is us. maybe over thanksgiving/black friday. i am with you on the beauty & the beast. CAN'T WAIT. and yeah i put my feet up on the dash of both our cars all the time and you can still see my prints lol. i haven't done it since our accident though, i sit like a model passenger now!ReplyDelete
The Beauty and the Beast trailer was everything!!! So good! :) I did not cry, but I can understand how you did, that is how I felt with the Gilmore Girls trailer... that FINALLY got here! :) LOL that tooth pic.. yup. It's good to try to focus on happy things. I told KC that I need to listen to some christmas or classical music today too. I love the Celtic Woman christmas albums! Really, I love so many Christmas albums... :) So excited! I'm hoping to see Fantastic Beasts this weekend, but I don't know if there will be time. I think all of those movies look good as well and I can't wait to see Moana... again, hopefully sometime soonish after it comes out. :) XO - AlexandraReplyDelete
Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things
I admit it... I made the leap already and have been playing Christmas music... it just makes me so happy!ReplyDelete
Love the Big 3, that show gets my heart every time! I loved the trailer for the movie too, I'm picturing a big old picture of Belle and the beast and your countdown on it!ReplyDelete
I will have to check out those Christmas albums. I'm tired of the same old loop on Christmas radio stations :)ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see Moana and Fantastic Beasts! Arrival doesn't interest me but I saw it has GREAT reviews!
I've been feeling off and down all week. I blamed it on politics/the holiday craziness, but maybe it had to do with the moon?
I'm two episodes behind on This Is Us! I need to catch up!
The super moon was super close and red looking here last night and that was pretty cool! I wanted to get some pictures from my house so I waited until I got home then realized the mountain was blocking it from our house view and never captured them :( I never thought about carbonated seltzer water messing with your teeth but I guess that makes sense! Stupid teeth! I love This is Us and I promised my sister I would go see Beauty and the Beast with her when it comes out for her birthday.ReplyDelete
I confess I totally thought about you when I watched the B&B Trailer. Plus I'm super stoked, it looks AWESOME! :)ReplyDelete
It's literally been months and months since we went to the movies, partly because we're lazy about getting babysitters but also partly because there just haven't been any movies out recently that have caught our attention. I'm excited too that in the next few months, there are some real winners coming out!ReplyDelete
I love This is Us so much too. And yes - I cry at least once and it's Randall who makes me cry. I'm adopted too and think they are doing such a great job with his story. Sometimes adoption stories are just messed up and irritate the crap out of me. You are a better person than I am because I couldn't sit through Trolls, but I will definitely go see Moana. I haven't watched the Beauty and the Beast trailer yet but I can't wait to see it. When the animated film came out originally, I thought it was okay but love it as an adult. And Hermoine as Belle - YES!ReplyDelete
I want to see a bunch of movies too! Chris showed me the trailer for Allied, and I really want to see it!ReplyDelete
I'm queuing up This is Us so i can binge it over the holidays..i've heard so many great things about it.ReplyDelete
I want to see Fantastic Beasts too! It really looks good! We haven't watched "This Is Us" so may have to look it up. I'm just about ready to start with the Christmas music! Last year, my Christmas spirit never really surfaced. This year for some reason, I am stoked about it. We almost didn't do a tree last year! What was wrong with us?!ReplyDelete
I want to see a couple of those movies too. I'm going to have to check out that This is Us. I keep hearing people talking about how good it is.ReplyDelete
I've been obsessed about reactions to the election too even though it stresses me out to read! I think I need to revert to Christmas music too :)ReplyDelete
I have the craziest headache TODAY. Maybe it is the moon?ReplyDelete
Up here in the mountains the super moon was amazing...Incredibly bright and clear!! I love LOVE This is Us! My new favorite show!ReplyDelete
Can't start Christmas music just yet. :)
I haven't watched This is Us. I feel like it's an emotional investment I'm not ready to make.ReplyDelete
Confession: I don't like Christmas music. But the supermoon was gorgeous!
My car is my home on wheels too and it's a disaster. I don't have an office, but I have to be at 3-4 different offices each week, so I basically just pack my car and drive around from meeting to meeting, eating in the car, lunch break in the car, and the poor car is a mess. I might add that to the to do list for this weekend! I loved the Beauty and the Beast trailer too! Looks so great!ReplyDelete
Yep. Giant headache yesterday/today. Maybe it's slowly travelling around the world?ReplyDelete
I haven't been to the cinema in ages and I'm so keen to get out to see one of the new releases. And eat a bucket of popcorn the size of my head. You know, the usual.
I love Casting Crowns' Peace on Earth--I was just listening to it last Saturday while working on Christmas cards, haha!ReplyDelete
Weather totally affects my head...the pressure throws me off! xo, Biana -BlovedBostonReplyDelete
I am loving this is us too. I am not caught up this week yet, but can't wait to. Great show. I did notice the moon, but on the second night more so than not. I still need to check out the trailer for Beauty and the Beast. I heard it looks really good!!!ReplyDelete
