I can’t believe it’s November already. I feel like this year has flown by. I’m excited, though, because November starts my favorite time of year – the holidays! Below are some things I’m looking forward to this month.
Cooking Thanksgiving dinner with Eric
Last year we decided it was too stressful to drive back home for Thanksgiving and Christmas, so we stayed in Pittsburgh for Thanksgiving. It was nice to cook a big holiday meal together and spend the day relaxing instead of driving all day trying to see everyone.
My sister and niece coming to visit
It will be nice to have some visitors and go do some fun holiday things with my niece. She’s almost three, so she’s tons of fun and I know she’ll love all of the holiday stuff going on.
Getting our engagement pictures done
We have our engagement photo session next Monday. It’s the first time we are meeting our photographer. I hope they turn out good and we can use one for our Christmas cards.
Decorating for the holidays
I’ll probably wait until the end of the month, but decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite things to do all year. I know it’s early, but I just can’t help it. I love seeing all of the lights and decorations. It looks so cheery. Hopefully we get the first snow flurries of the year this month to get us all in the spirit. I’m not a huge fan of tons of snow, but I do love a good flurry around the holidays.
The release of Adele’s new album
I’m so excited to hear this album. Aside from the recent release of the first single off the album, it’s been so long since we’ve heard anything from Adele. I love her voice and I’m sure this album will not disappoint.
The movie “Spotlight”
This movie is about a group of journalists at the Boston Globe who uncover a scandal. It’s based on a true story and the reporters won Pulitzer Prizes for their work. I have been looking forward to seeing this movie for months. As a journalist, I love watching these types of movies. The cast looks amazing and it’s getting a lot of positive buzz from critics. Watch the trailer here.
What are you guys looking forward to this month?
