In the last month …
I’ve been working out of my office a lot more (it gets too hot a lot of the year). And when I’m in there, Fang insists on being with me. I have an old backpack, on top of a box, that she curls up on to nap. Cutie.
We went to the theatre a couple weeks ago — Wicked tickets for my birthday! The actress who played Glinda was incredible. The actress who played Elphaba was good. Not great.
We went to the movies twice this month. Which actually became twice this year. The Hobbit (pictured below). We went the same day it came out, but the theater was almost empty. Wednesday night, though, and a long movie, so I guess that’s it.
We also went and saw Into the Woods in the theatre on Christmas Eve, and it was SO good! We loved it!
Andrew has his studio up and running FOR REAL. He’s had a session basically every single weekend since mid-November. I am so crazy proud of him!
If your band wants to make a record with him, let me know
#HPDec is still going strong. I began book 5 over the weekend. I love this series so much — of course there are flaws and all, but I don’t care. I just love enjoying them. I’ve pushed back all my library books until February or so to finish this series and a bunch of other books I own that have just been sitting in to be read piles around my house.
Hung out with family on December 23 — my cousin (pictured here) was home from school in NYC and we all went to dinner and played games at home. They are awesome.
Same family gave us this hand me down patio set. I think we are going to rehab it in white and gold. Andrew is obsessed with gold. A friend of ours also came over to look at our disaster of a backyard to help us with landscaping. I AM SO EXCITED! Maybe in a few months I’ll have a good ‘after’ photo for you.
Chicken enchiladas (or, rather enchilada casserole) for Christmas. I should post a recipe soon. So good and much easier than rolling each enchilada individually. I made 2 pans for holiday get-togethers.
Christmas afternoon at my in-laws
Our nephew got a bounce house for Christmas! SO fun. What a cutie.
And we invited our friend Travis over for Christmas dinner too. He’s from New Orleans, and this is only his second Christmas in L.A. so obviously he needed to come share enchiladas.
The next time you’ll see me will be for our annual New Year’s Day blog party!!!!!
Hope you all are having a lovely final week of 2014.
