the ramblings of a wife, mommy (soon-to-be), foodie, runner and follower of Christ.
1.) It has been such a wonderful October so far :) Marty and I have done several festive, fall activities and have had a great time doing so. We headed to The Corn Maize last weekend (the largest corn maize in Ohio) with some friends. I actually went last year for one of my bachelorette parties and we decided to go back again this year with the boys!
Our festive activity over the past weekend was going to see The Birds for Hitchcocktober at the Gateway Film Center. Hitchcock is one of my all-time favorite directors and I think I’ve seen almost all of his American films!
2.) Movie Review: Pitch Perfect. This movie completely exceeded my expectations! I thought it looked kind of cute for a girls night out; however, I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did! The story line was original, the a capella harmonies were OUTSTANDING, and the characters worked well with one another and were hysterical (especially ‘Fat Amy’!) I know it looks kind of silly and not worthwhile but, take my word for it, you’ll enjoy it!!
3.) I’ve been trying to do some more Fall crafts with the little girl that I nanny for. I am hoping to do some type of leaf painting this week – I’m just not sure what/how yet ;)
4.) Book Review: Girls In White Dresses. Wasn’t great, but wasn’t bad either. Check out my book blog for the full review!
5.) I love cooking! Do you? I think that coming up with new recipes and trying new recipes keeps meals interesting and exciting :) In my last post I wrote about a yummy chili recipe that I made over the weekend. I have also recently tried this and this. The candy corn cookies didn’t turn out as well as I would’ve liked but they were cute enough and quite tasty. Stay tuned for some more recipes coming soon!
6.) I love this just a little too much:
Happy Wednesday Everyone!
