2. It's November! I absolutely love November: cooler fall weather, my annual girls' weekend in Chicago with my mom and sister, my birthday, Thanksgiving. Our schedule clears ever so slightly (in preparation for a jam-packed December), which means more homemade dinners, evenings at home, and early bedtimes. Ah, earlier bedtimes…sounds like heaven to me!
Perhaps the cutest introduction to the month of November that ever existed.
If you can't understand two-year-old Little Miss, the words to the song are here.
Though there are still a couple of hoops to jump through, I found out this week that my corneas are thick and should handle surgery nicely. One step closer to eyes that can see farther than six inches in front of my face!
4. This "Mr. Holland's Opus-ish" story about children who build their own musical instruments out of garbage will bring tears - at least some of which will be happy - to your eyes. It doesn't matter the kind, where it comes from, or how it's made…music joins hearts, opens minds, and makes the world a kinder, more peaceful, and more spiritual place.
5. Catching Fire opens in 20 days! I purchased my tickets and lined up my babysitter weeks ago, and I've just about finished rereading both The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, so now there's not much left to do but count down the days until the big release…
The final trailer, released earlier this week.
Linking up with High Five for Friday!
