Lola And The Boy Next Door

Remember many months ago when I blogged about Anna and the French Kiss and Stephanie Perkins next book? Well I just finished reading her second book like, 6 minutes ago.
It was fantastic. So much better than I imagined and I was imagining a pretty brilliant book.
Unfortunately, it now makes me wish I had grown up in San Francisco next door to an impossibly tall inventor. *sigh* Oh well, that's what books are for, right?
This is a screenshot I took last month to show how I had been anxiously awaiting for Lola to come out.

I have three pies to bake and I just realized that evaporated and condensed milk are not the same thing. Yikes!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

I dyed my hair red last night!
It's not a super pretty picture, but you get the idea.

Birthday Presents!

See, it hasn't even been a month since my birthday and I'm finally getting around to blogging about it! I'm getting faster in my old age!
So, I got a lot of really awesome presents this year. My friends and family really spoiled me. I'm just mentioning a few, because you don't really want to read a detailed inventory, right?

FIRST! My Ah-mazing mother got me a hair cut! I love having short hair. It's not really short, but compared to how long it had been, I almost feel bald. In the best possible way.

Next, My friends Melinda, Courtney, Carmen and Jessi were super awesome. Melinda gave me a bunch of candy including a whirly pop. I still haven't eaten it yet... I don't know if I ever will, it's so cute!
Courtney gave me a Littlest Pet Shop Blythe doll. I love her glasses! Jess gave me a Lisa Frank pen and a piggy bank (to save up money so I'll go visit her) and a cute little cell phone charm. iPhone not included.
And then there is Carmen's present... Carmen gave me a Jacob Black Barbie doll. I laughed for 5 minutes when I opened the box. He was something I never thought anyone would have given to me. I think a lot of the best presents/memories are things like that.
Then we have my sister's present. I actually knew what she was getting me all along, but that changes nothing about how awesome it was. Amanda went to the Austin Teen Book Festival and got my copy of "Anna and the French Kiss" and "Lola and the Boy Next Door" autographed by Stephanie Perkins!!!
What I pretty much want any book I ever have signed to say. Michael Buckley started it.

She wished me a happy birthday!!!!!

All in all, I declare this 20th celebration of MadFests a sucess!
Until next year,

Favorite Film Friday #6: Pocahontas

I only recently fell in love with this movie and I fell hard. I listen to "Just Around The Riverbend" at least once a day. I can't believe I didn't watch this movie when I was a kid, it's so good!

This movie reminds me of Mary Blair + Bambi

I love Meeko in this scene!

Oh, John...

I'm very sleepy and not in a terribly creative mood right now, but  I really wanted to get at least one FFF in this month!
I'll try to plan ahead so I can have some lined up for December.
Happy Friday!

Things That Make Me Happy (Right Now) Vol. 3

 I hope you had a happy Halloween!
I don't know how often I'll get to blog in the coming months... Everything seems to speed up this time of year and all my free time just seems to evaporate.
So in case I don't get back for awhile, here are some things that I think are pretty cool.

1. This Chanel commercial

2. This Janet Hill Studio Print

When I have money, I am definitely buying this one.

3. Drama Fever
To be honest, that is where about 50% of my free time is being spent nowadays.

4. A Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks
5. My Jacob Black Barbie Doll. I got him for my Birthday. I'm hoping to do a post with a run down of my birthday presents... Some of them were pretty cool!!!
6. Martha Stewart glitter. It's seriously the best glitter ever!

Happy Sunday!
