Hello, my lovelies!
Life is crazy busy right now, what with the missionary house guests my family is entertaining for the next few days, but I thought I’d take some time out (being an introvert, time outs are especially important) to update you with some stuff that’s going on in my life. Life update posts are always tons of fun for me (I even feel in the mood for a vlog…we’ll see) so grab some lemonade and settle in!
Well, for starters, the family who’s staying with us is great. It’s their third time being our house guests and even though they can’t stay for very long this time, we’re all thankful for the time we can spend together. We watched Meet the Robinsons last night – one of my favorite movies – (and stayed up ’til 11:30!) so that was seriously awesome, and we’re just generally having a good time. The only downside is that my sisters and I have been temporarily evicted from our bedroom (as it’s ideal for people coming to stay with us) so I didn’t get much rest last night, since I don’t do well with new sleeping arrangements. Sooooo, around 3:30 in the morning, Elisabeth and I both woke up and she played games on her iPod (it’s a very versatile device) while I watched some more Emma Approved.
Because, YES, I’m re-watching the series and it’s amazing. (In fact, I’m starting to pick up Emma’s quirks a little, so if this post seems overly enthusiastic, that’s the reason.) All the cast is Perfect, which I love…the last episode I watched was the post-Boxx party one. *feeeels* I can’t wait to see Emma and Alex (and Harriet and Martin) get their happy ending. “Everyone gets a better liiiiife!”
I’ve got a couple of blog posts in drafts right now and I’m working the most on ‘my top ten favorite movies of all time’ so that should be out in the next week or two. Can’t wait for you all to read it + share your thoughts. On the other side of the writing spectrum, I’ve been buckling down and revising The Bounty Hunter. It’s far (far, far, far) from perfect, but I do love the story lots, so I’m persevering. *fist-pump*
On the movie/TV show-watching front, I’ve been immersing myself in lots of Hogan’s Heroes (I never thought I’d like it as much as I do) and pining for old favorites (basically any old Hollywood movie I’ve gushed about in the past year) which I can’t really watch right now – because of our house guests – but I’m dying too. I’m also anxious to see Captain America: Civil War, Love & Friendship, The Little Prince, and some other movies that have come out recently…curse you, dvd-release-dates-that-are-sixteen-months-away! (They’re not really that long. But it feels like it.)
Anyway, that’s about it for news (oh, and I can ride my bike perfectly now). What’s going on in your life? I can’t wait to hear about it. 🙂
