Deck the Halls

I was so relieved to take a break from studying to be able to spend some quality time with the hubs & decorate our house for Christmas this past weekend! I feel like people jumped on the Christmas train way earlier this year – there were houses in my neighborhood decked out for the holidays well before Thanksgiving! What gives? I personally like to take holidays one at a time. What’s the rush, people?!

Have I mentioned how much I love having a faux tree? SO easy and low maintenance! The only thing I do miss is that delicious pine smell that no longer permeates my home. However, that’s nothing a little holiday Febreeze can’t take care of! 😉

Ps; although I find myself unable to sleep as soundly as I used to at night, I’m kind of in love with American Horror Story. I’m pretty sure Zachary Quinto is to blame (ohmyhawt).

Weekend Highlights

Saturday was a highly anticipated day in the world of Melificent. I was finally going to see The Deathly Hallows with some of my closest friends at Cinebistro, a 21+ theater that serves you dinner and drinks as you enjoy the movie. Without giving away any spoilers (I know a lot of people have yet to see the film), the movie was nothing short of incredible. It stayed true to the book and really did a great job evoking all the intense feelings that are swimming all throughout the series closer. I’ve always complained that watching the movies does not compare to reading the books, but while watching Part 1, all the same emotions I felt while reading the book came right back up to the surface. In other words, I was a big heaping pile of loser. I don’t even know how I’m going to handle the second chapter, perhaps with an industrial size tissue box.
