I'm excited to use this beautiful, NEW winter banner by Jaime. It's more appropriate now too since it's actually kind of cold in California now (cold for us, anyway).
WHAT I'M READING
ALLEGIANT. The holidays and turkeys got me. Lots of eating, not so much reading. I did start JUST ONE YEAR though! It's Gayle Forman's follow-up companion to JUST ONE DAY, which I reviewed for YA Book Club last year.
WHAT I'M WRITING
Nothing really this week. It was Thanksgiving last week and then ALL THE SHOPPING. So as I said, the turkey (and apple pie) got to me.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Random things. For example, we had a spectacular sunset in LA the other day.

WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN UP TO
Over Thanksgiving, the Sister and I went to see Disney's new animated feature, FROZEN. Loved it. Like Pixar's BRAVE, the focus was on female and family relationships and like Disney's last one TANGLED, FROZEN was full of beautiful animation and clever quips. Oh, and I loved the short that went before. Such a perfect blend of combining the old and the new styles of animation. Classic and new. Definitely recommended.

So we picked him up on Thanksgiving, and um, he is now taking up A LOT OF SPACE in the pool house. I didn't know it would be so big...and it's kind of creepy.
|That is our Loki sitting in front of Loki display, which is folded in half. Our dog from head to tail is |
like the breadth of display!Loki's shoulders. See, he's kind of creepy.
|The Sister's food creations. I loved the peppermint chocolate chip loaf.|
|It's finally looking like fall in SoCal. Apple pie made from scratch by my cousin.|
The Sister and I participated in a month-long challenge called #Nerdvember where we tried to incorporate something geeky/nerdy into our look every day. You can see our attempts at our instagrams here: akangaru (me) and catherine (sister)
Here are some of my favorites (and you can see me go from blonde-ish to red-haired by the end):
What's up with you?
