It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date

I hope everyone had a great November, and Thanksgiving if you celebrate! My month has been spent doing a ton of homework and hanging out with the family. Our Thanksgiving was a little unconventional this year; my family had various illnesses so we split up, and had little individual Thanksgivings. It was just the three of us for dinner! Wyatt really loved the cheesy potatoes the best. Friday I spent lazing about the house with the boy and husband, and it was nice. Billy actually went out early and got us a doorbuster television from Best Buy; ours was going and he got us a great new tv for under $300! Saturday was completely different - we went on an Owl Prowl at our favorite metropark. Usually there are 50 people there; this year, it was just Billy and I and one of the park rangers we know! It was pretty cool - we spent a long time tromping through the woods in the dark, calling for owls. We heard so many and a few flew in close, but we never could spot them entirely. It was pretty cool walking around the woods and fields in the dark, bu I have to admit, my overactive imagination started going crazy and I got a little spooked!! We had a great time out together. We have weird date nights, I guess. Lol. I also spent the weekend watching the Gilmore Girls revival - anyone else watch it? What the what was that ending!!!!

Read Last Week/Reading This Week:

So, I have had to really focus on school work, these classes kill me, so I am reading a lot of articles and books. We have read some really fascinating things, and I am sharing the two books with you. I am not linking the articles although if anyone is interested let me know! These two books have some great information in them, and both are written in a way that is easy to read, and is actually interesting, unlike some material that you read for school. 



Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Longmire (holy crap I love this show!!), and I am going to start watching Good Girls Revolt. And of course, it is now the Christmas season! I can't wait to start watching Christmas movies with the kiddo!

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date

I hope everyone had a great Halloween! We had a great time; Wyatt was still a little congested so we just went a block trick or treating, which honestly, would probably all we would have done anyway. He's little still, and it's not like he's going to eat all that candy...he can leave that to his parents. Lol.

Read Last Week:


On Second Thought and Behind Closed Doors are both review books from the publisher. On Second Thought was so good, and just what I needed!! Behind Closed Doors was equally good, but so freaky!! I had to put it down for a bit!!

Reading This Week:


So one of these is required reading...guess which one? Lol. I am sure it will be interesting, I just have to finish it before Monday. So, here it is on my list!


Longmire (love this so far!!), Supernatural, Van Helsing, The Walking Dead, The Gilmore Girls. I just finished watching the whole series of The Office - wow, that show was really good, and had one of the best final seasons I have ever seen!

Goodbye October, Hello November!

With your trips to the cider mill and apple orchard,

Your warm days and cool nights,
hayrides and ghost stories.

This month I learned that Wyatt loves pumpkin spice anything. 
That I love pumpkin spice lattes - I just had my first one!

We had fun collecting things for Wyatt's fall nature discovery box.

I was reminded of the infinite creativity and talents of my husband. He made Wyatt's viking costume - not the hat - and turned a wagon into a viking ship...

And about how awesome my family is in general. I had a moment, standing and watching my husband, son, sister-in-law, and niece (er.. dragon) trick or treating. My brother and I hung back and just watched, and I thought of how many years I trick or treated with that kid, my brother, and how now, how lucky we are that we can take our kids out together. 

So hello November! I am looking forward to seeing what this month brings!
