1.) I got to the movie theater two times over the weekend. I saw Twilight: Breaking Dawn 2 and Skyfall. In my opinion, neither of them were as great as the critics have made them out to be; however, I was thoroughly entertained by both of them. I hadn’t seen any of the Bond films prior to Skyfall and it definitely lived up to my expectations: a lot of action (some realistic, some campy) and Javier Bardem as an ultra-creepy villain (does any actor really make a better villain?!) As for Twilight, I’d say it was the best one (other than the original.) Everything ended on a high note and it was fun to see the different twists from the book.
2.) I finally got a new pair of running shoes! 🙂 Mizunos to be precise! It had honestly been a good three years since I last bought a pair. Yes – you read that correctly: three years. While considering the longevity of my old pair, I will say that I didn’t get into running until this past year; however, they’d been my workout shoes for the last three years so they’d definitely gotten a lot of use.
I went for my first run on Saturday evening and could not believe the difference! My feet haven’t fully recovered from the half marathon (they’ve been sore on the sides, I think I started working out again too quickly after the race) so I was crossing my fingers that new shoes would help…and they did! I can’t wait to see how far my Mizunos will take me!!
3.) Thanksgiving this week! I need to make some turkey cookies! Maybe I’ll make some tomorrow with the little girl I nanny for?? I’m thinking one of these (images all via Pinterest):
4.) I’m not big into Black Friday shopping (mostly because I’m not in the market for the majority of sale items and, well, stores are just a madhouse that day); however, this year I’m in need of a new laptop. While I’d love a Mac, I just can’t bring myself to spend the money on one. Maybe one day but for now, I’ll stick with a PC. So…that’s where I need help! I can’t decide between 1) HP 2) Dell and 1) Touch Screen 2) Non Touch Screen. I know I’m looking for Windows 8 but I just can’t decide which computer. Does anyone have any suggestions?!? I’ll be honest – I’m leaning more towards an HP at this point. I’ve just not had the best luck with my Dells in the past!
5.) I’m in love with this new print I ordered from Etsy:
Marty and I both adore San Francisco and would love to live there one day; however, since it’s not in the cards right now, I figured I’d bring a bit of San Fran to Columbus. Thanks Anna See for the adorable print!
Have you ordered anything off of Etsy recently? I seriously have to pull myself off that website. I could spend and spend and spend.
