From Halloween to the Christmas Season

So for about the last month my computer has not been working, so my totally awesome roommate, Allison, is letting me borrow her computer for a minute so that I can update my blog. So let's begin with Halloween. The Monday before Halloween Allison, me, and my friend Benit (it's pronounced Benny) from work carved pumpkins while watching Dial M for Murder.

It was Benit's first time carving pumpkins and he got very into it and made Jack the Pumpkin King from Nightmare Before Christmas. Sadly that night I got sick with the 24 hour flu, and I didn't think that I would be able to actually dress up for Halloween, which was the day after I was sick. Luckily I was able to dress up but I felt very much like I looked in my usual costume. I know very flattering as always.
November was pretty low key for me. I went and saw a couple of movies: The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which I really enjoyed, it made my laugh and cry. I kind of want to read the book now. I also saw Skyfall which is the new James Bond movie, and it was amazing!!! I liked it almost as much as Casino Royale if not better. Then of course we had Thanksgiving in Kanarraville with the family, which was lots of fun, and I helped my sister make eight pies plus I had to make my yummy creamed corn for dinner. After dinner I did do a little Black Friday shopping and bought a ton of movies that I really shouldn't have. I also went and saw Breaking Dawn Part 2 the day after Thanksgiving with my friend Kymn. I absolutely loved it, and yes I know it's silly that I enjoy the Twilight movies as much as I do, but they're a guilty pleasure that I don't feel so guilty about. Speaking of guilty pleasures, I recently discovered the movie Xanadu with Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly. Seriously it is amazing and super cheesy, but I think I could watch it over and over again!
So far December has been busy. I've been to Temple Square twice to see the Christmas lights, word of advice, I would go on a Thursday, that seems like it would be the least busiest day to go. I went to a live Nativity with Allison as well as the Zoolights at the Hogle Zoo, which was actually really cool. I did also make a gingerbread house for FHE.
Other than that I am adjusting to City life and trying to be more sociable. I am on the Publicity committee in my singles ward. I'm looking forward to Christmas in Kanarraville with lots of family and lots of food. I'm looking forward to seeing The Hobbit this weekend, and I may be dressing up. We'll see. That's it for now. Until nexttime.

The pumpkins look awesome, and I LOVE Dial M for Murder! That's one of my favorite Hitchcock films. I also really liked Perks of Being a Wallflower. It was very reminiscent of my high school years! I also liked Skyfall...enough. It's actually the first and only James Bond movie I've ever seen. He's such a slut and I'm sure spreading STD's all over the globe.

So excited to see you soon! We are planning to go to Temple Square next Wednesday. Last year we went on a Saturday. BIG mistake!
