Friday Thoughts: Love Actually + Approaching Holidays

img_0495.jpg

Happy Friday everyone, welcome back! Hope you've all had a fabulous week. This week has been chock-full and so exciting, I'm excited to share it with you all!

  • I hate road closures whilst driving. Detours make me so uneasy - I just don't like not knowing where I'm going. I had to drive my bf to his exam on Saturday and I pulled up to the main road I take to school to find it was closed all weekend. So, I followed the detour, whilst screaming. I genuinely had a moment of panic like "oh my god my bf is going to miss his exam" - despite the fact that we were like two hours ahead of schedule. I basically looked like this:
  • We got our first real snowfall of the season!! I've been dying for a good snowfall for like ages (I even mentioned this in last week's Friday Thoughts). It's been so lovely to drive around and see that thick blanket of snow on the ground and on rooftops. It was the good, fluffy kind of snow, too.
  • My mum and I had a girls' night out on Monday evening to see Love Actually play at the VIP movie theatre in Burloak. At first, I was worried we may not even make it, as there was a ton of traffic due to the snow. But all was well. It was a great evening of laughter and a few fun drinks.
  • CHRISTMAS IS NEXT WEEKEND!!! WHAT?? Next week is gonna be crazy busy. My boyfriend and I've got exams to finish up, we're seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi in theatres (any Star Wars fans out there?), we're having dinner with my bf's parents, and we're having dinner with my parents and grandma. My boyfriend goes home Friday for his own family Christmas celebrations and then Sunday is Christmas eve!!! Time's going by so quick. Hopefully, I'll have a moment of peace to fill you guys in on how it all goes.
  • Did anyone catch Harry Styles on tv being particularly cute whilst filling in for James Corden on his talk-show?? I watched a bit online afterwards. Nearly six years since I first was introduced to One Direction, and I still find Harry so adorable.

Have a great weekend everybody! Hopefully, you all have a relaxing weekend ahead of ya :)

Friday Thoughts: Sunrises & Daily Walks

img_0213.jpg

Hello everybody! TGIF! It’s Friday, which means another Friday Thoughts post.

  • Ever since I’ve moved, I’ve really noticed the difference between sunrises/sunsets in the city and in the countryside, since my town is surrounded by rural area. I'm often getting up for classes at unbelievably early hours of the morning, and seeing sunrises, like the one in this post's header photo, really makes it worthwhile.
  • Lately, my mum and I have been taking my dog on a daily walk, and I've been enjoying it immensely. I love walking around my neighbourhood as we're still technically newbies and I'm not yet totally familiar with the area. There are so many beautiful homes around us and I love seeing them all decorated for Halloween.
  • This weekend is going to be a busy one for my family. Saturday my boyfriend and I are going out with friends for drinks, and then Sunday my family is going to see Kingsman 2 in theatres. Plus, my bf and I have a pumpkin to carve, some last min decorations to put up, and some chores to do. I'm tired just thinking of it! But luckily, it's all fun stuff, aside from the chores.
  • I really have to stop watching Tangled and Moana 24/7, but I also cannot stop myself from watching Tangled and Moana 24/7. It's an addiction!! I just love them both terribly, and they're the best pick-me-up films ever.
  • My family decided that since we've moved into a more spacious home this year, we want to throw a Christmas party for our friends this year and I'm so excited. I love party planning and although it's well over a month away, I've already started saving recipes and ideas on Pinterest (you can follow me there if you want, the link to my profile is at the bottom haha) 
  • I've been super into playing games on my phone lately, which isn't really something I've done a lot of since I was in high school. But I discovered Pictionary and Fight List which you can play against friends or random opponents, and I love playing them both. Whenever I'm bored I basically alternate between the two!
  • I'm so excited for Halloween next week. It's gunna be the first year in awhile that my parents will be home as they usual travel around this time of the year. So my parents, my boyfriend, and I are gunna stay in, watch some Halloween films, and hand-out candy. It will be a great evening!

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!
