Life Updates: November Edition

It's weird that this place is slowly becoming 'home'.


But then we get assaulted by fog in the morning, and the only places we eat are fried chicken joints, I remember that this place is unapologetically my temporary home.


Here's just a few things we've done this past month. *and side note: HOLY HANNAH! HOW IS IT NOVEMBER ALREADY?!?! WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?


+Blanket scarves are SO in...the blogging world. Your hubby just thinks you are crazy that you think wrapping a plaid blanket around you is cute.


What I see:
So cute. So trendy. Must. Have.



What the hubby sees:
Are you seriously wrapping yourself in a blanket?!?!



+We are too old for Halloween. We need kidlets to fully enjoy it.


+Our Halloween night consisted of Chinese takeout and What Lies Beneath. #oldschool


+Uncle Lou's sweet and spicy love...Do not miss this. Even if you are scared of sketchy neighborhoods. You'll be rewarded.



+I crave fried pickles every time we go out to eat. Gus' are still my favorite so far.


+I AM SO ready for Christmas break. 3 weeks of vacation? Yes. Please!


+Brand new movie theaters are the best! But movies are expensive in MS. We had to resort to a matinee--the horror!


+GO watch Interstellar. Right. Now. This is one of the best films that I've ever seen. It's so different. It's refreshing. It makes you think. Also, I laughed, I cried, and I nearly peed myself. It's that good.  #spacetravel



+T Mobile doesn't suck. It's nice to not have to worry about data usage...#verizonhadmescared


+Happy Fall Ya'll (I am trying to embrace my surroundings)
Rustic, Tree Slice Wall Hanger, Tree Slice Art, State Art, Welcome Y'all
Buy it here.


+We got called to be family historian consultants. I am already sick of hearing my own voice. And it's only been a week. Also, Carlos volunteered us to speak on Sunday. #thanksbutnothanks


+"Outside of Utah wards" are so different. I literally feel like there's a church activity EVERY DAY. Maybe that's because we actually go to them.


+Working at home rocks. You should try it sometime.


+I miss having a Hobby Lobby 30 seconds away from me. I make due by at least an 1 hour of Etsy a week.


+Downtown Memphis has it's charm. But WHATABOUT the Trolleys?!?! They are still down...



+Sorry Thanksgiving, but I NEED Christmas d├ęcor to go up NOW.


+ALL the baked goods.


+Yes, I got myself a donut pan. It was something I convinced myself that I absolutely, would-die-if-I-didn't-have-it. I'm still not convinced though. There's something about frying a piece of dough that speaks to me. #fatkidprobs


+Carlos survived his second week of midterms. #herestofinals


+We bought Calvin and Hobbes their very own dog-friendly Thanksgiving dinner. Yeah, we are those kind of dog people.





+Sunsets here are gorg.


I'm counting down the days/hours/minutes/seconds until Christmas. AAAHHH can't wait!
