    Hallmark Christmas Movies I Would & Have Watched Multiple Times

    If you know me, it’s no secret that I have a mild obsession with Hallmark movies. Sure they are predictable and many of them follow a similar formula – especially the romantic comedy ones. But I don’t care, I will still watch all the movies! The Christmas movies are especially my favorite. Some are much better than others. Some I watch and I really love and some I’m like eh, that was just okay. This season of Christmas movies on the channel started back at the end of October so I’ve already seen quite a few and there are still more to come leading up to the holiday. Some of…

    November 2018 Favorites

    It’s the last day of November! How?! I felt like it was the beginning of November when Thanksgiving was around the corner and now we’re at the very end. As usual, I’ve rounded up some things I loved this month that made it into my monthly favorites. First up, I know everyone goes crazy for the Starbucks holiday cups but they really are so pretty. Here are shots of 2 of the designs. They just make me happy! Speaking about holiday, I put up my Christmas tree the weekend before Thanksgiving. Usually I wait until the day after but I was busy all Thanksgiving weekend so I did it early. I…

    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – Makers, Mysteries, and Magic

    Do you have an Audible account? I didn’t until recently (does a free trial count?) because Audible was kind enough to send me a copy of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – Makers, Mysteries, and Magic! I just saw the movie this weekend so I was even more pumped to listen to this behind the scenes audio. First off – I saw the movie late Saturday night and although the movie has gotten some negative reviews I actually didn’t think it was that bad. I’ll agree it wasn’t amazing and there are more questions than answers – but honestly anything related to Harry Potter isn’t going to get hate from…

    New TV Shows I’m Loving

    Every fall I look forward to checking out the new shows on TV. Some I really look forward to and they aren’t as good as I hoped, some live up to expectations, and some exceed expectations. I’ve rounded up 4 new shows this season that I’ve been watching, loving, and fit in to that category of exceeding expectations. First up, Magnum, P.I.. This reboot of the Tom Selleck show modernizes the story of Hawaii’s favorite private investigator. It’s brought to viewers from the same producer as Hawaii Five-0. I never watched the original show, but I know of it. My mom used to watch it back when it was on tv…

    October 2018 Favorites

    Happy Halloween! I can’t believe it’s already Halloween, the end of October, and that the holiday season is officially upon us. It’s crazy how fast this year has gone. Since it’s the end of October I’ve rounded up some things I loved this month as I do every month. First up, is the coffee table book I got – Florists to the Field . It’s so pretty and I love flipping through and looking at the gorgeous photos! The next few favorites are things I’ve been loving to wear/use. My black joggers with white stripes down the side are so soft and comfy! I love them. My favorite shoe this fall has…

    Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire Concert

    This past Saturday I went to see Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire in concert. Yes, in concert! You might be wondering what that means. So NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center) played the movie on a big screen on a stage while the New Jersey Symphony played the score. It was such a cool experience and I’d been looking forward to it since I bought the tickets weeks ago. First off, the venue is gorgeous inside. I’d never been to the NJPAC before in Newark, but it is really nice inside. I got tickets pretty late, so my seats were high up (not all the way at the top…

    Cute Halloween Movies

    So if you know me, you know I do not like being scared. I don’t like scary or creepy movies. That also means I don’t like scary, creepy Halloween costumes. I don’t hate Halloween, but it’s definitely not my favorite holiday. As a kid, I loved picking out a costume, going trick or treating, etc. But, I was the kid who always dressed up as something fun and cute like a princess, fairy, angel etc. I like the cute, whimsical version of Halloween. I don’t like the bloody, gory version. Costumes that involve fake blood? No thanks. Painting your face to look like a corpse or zombie? Nope. Since I don’t…

    Goo Goo Dolls – Dizzy Up the Girl Anniversary Tour

    Happy Friday! If you saw my blog post last week rounding up a few of my favorite Goo Goo Dolls songs then you know I went to see them in concert this week. To make a long story short, Goo Goo Dolls were one of my favorite bands in high school. I loved their music and frontman Johnny Rzeznik. High school was an okay time for me – I wouldn’t say they were the best years but they weren’t miserable either. I would say my high school years were typical and Goo Goo Dolls definitely were my go-to music when I wasn’t listening to NSYNC, Justin Timberlake, and other pop…

    Goo Goo Dolls – Favorite Songs

    Who here used to listen to/still listens to The Goo Goo Dolls? Back in high school my friend Amy and I absolutely loved them and listened to them all the time. I loved their catchy songs and lyrics and listening to their music got me through a lot of high school. Well, they are coming to town for an anniversary tour next week and Amy and I are going! We first heard about their concert months ago but tickets were sold out before we got the chance to buy them but we got really lucky and Amy won tickets! I’ve seen them in concert before (back in high school or…

    September 2018 Favorites

    I can’t believe it’s Monday already. Weekends go by way too fast. I had a full weekend, but it wasn’t super busy and I got a decent amount of sleep both Friday and Saturday night so I don’t know why I was so tired all weekend! Anyway, I can’t believe it’s already Monday and I also don’t know how it’s October!? I have a few favorites from September to share. I watched a lot of stuff on Netflix and Amazon in September for some reason. Amongst all the things my two favorites hands-down were Jack Ryan and To All the Boys I Loved Before. The new take on the Jack Ryan stories…
