TGIF

TGIF! It has been such gorgeous weather here the last few days- it is really starting to feel like winter. I don't think we will get snow for thanksgiving but maybe we will have a white Christmas this year because it is COLD. This week has been challenging one! Nora is starting to hopefully be over her biting phase- only biting me :) when she gets mad.  Her typical mad is usually when she wants to walk and it's not the best time for her to walk or if she wants something she can't have like knives or scissors.   But now she is climbing on everything and not just chairs and couches.. climbing on top of the tables, trying to climb into the garbage cans, and yes even climbing on top of the pugs. .   I know I am only moments away for her climbing out of her crib and falling face first into the carpet and running free in the house in the middle of the night but my pedestrian did tell me that humans can fall safely up to 4 feet with out hurting themselves.  Who knew? I have a wriggly little toddler that just wants to break free and is completely fearless but the climbing phase has me a little worried.

This weekend I have a mom's night out planned and we are going to see the new Hunger's game movie and do a little happy hour which means margaritas!  I haven't read the book in some time but I think that might be a good thing because I always struggle with the whole balance of book to movie.  If the movie is too much like the book then it feels like not really movie and then if a movie is not enough like the book then I get caught up on all the details that should have been in the movie.  But it will be fun.

What are you up to this weekend?

Jealous of your lovely weather! Pittsburgh is gray, cold, and rainy. Like misty rainy. Ergh.

Great quote and image. I love the autumn weather, but can't cope with all the rainy weather we've been having in England... Have a great weekend! xx

It was actually warm here the other day, which was kind of weird. We were outside in t-shirts, but then the next day it was back in the 30's. Only in New England, right?

Hunger games is really cool, loved the fashion in the movie too....but I'm more of a bookworm thanmovie, and this one sticks pretty much with the book, so you'll like it I guess.... thanks for stopping by my blog, I'll keep in touch!

From what I've heard, this movie got even better reviews than the first one and didn't make any awful cuts from the storyline! You'll have to let me know how you like it! I can't wait to see it but I'm waiting for the crowds to die down a bit.
