weekend update.


RECAPS
-- i pre-ordered frozen AND catching fire with some leftover christmas moneys. you know what that means! it means they'll show up at my front door on their release date. woohoo!

-- we took down our christmas decorations on sunday. it hurts my heart a little every year when we have to take the ornaments and lights off the tree. we even still had our christmas lights up out front and had started referring to them as "winter lights" so that it was more acceptable as we were in the 2nd week of january. christmas for liiiiiiiiife.

-- my flight for cali is booked, so my san diego vaca in march is offish. can't wait!

-- i'm still in love with my new glasses from warby parker. i'll be doing a review of them this week. i promise!

OTHER FINDS
-- interesting article about bravery
-- this DIY anthropologie wreath is to-die for. i'm totes going to make one!!
-- loving this valentine's themed garland
-- please tell me y'all have see this AHmazing photo bomb from the golden globes last night. i seriously love JLaw.

WHAT YOU MAY HAVE MISSED
embracing the weirdness

FAVORITE READS

i'm so ready for Frozen to come out! and i guess we'll have to refer to ours as winter lights as well because we definitely still have all of our decorations up including our tree! we've been lazy this year!

I just saw a comment you left on someone else's blog, and I thought you looked fun, so I came over here and boy was I right! I love your blog and the design is so dreamy :). Have you read the Hunger Games series or will Catching Fire be your first time knowing the storyline (when you receive it)? It's nice to meet you/find you!

Eliza St.Clair said...

I love the idea of pre ordering movies so they show up on your door step! That would be like getting a little present in the mail - genius :) Nice to stumble across your blog today! xoxo

Megan McIlvaine said...

right?? i've never really done that before. i'm pumped. thanks for stopping by, girl!

Megan McIlvaine said...

aww yay! so glad you came to visit! YES, i have read all the books...a couple times! loved them.

Megan McIlvaine said...

eeeep! me too. i want to watch it all day every day.
haha! girl, i say keep those lights up as long as possible. i think it's totally acceptable :)

Kaysie G said...

Me too. I've only been through once. I'm saving round 2 for when I'm pregnant, even though it will be a few years, in hopes that the magic will trickle down into my womb. Weird?

JLaw is the best. I love Bittersweet! I've heard Gift from the Sea is fantastic. I need to add it to my reading list!

Amy said...

+ did you preorder through amazon?! I'd love to do that for catching fire (and is it cheaper that way?)
+ loving the new glasses - can't wait to read the post!
+ I'm going to go check out the reading list right now - I'm in a bit of a reading "funk"

Megan McIlvaine said...

- i did! mmmm i'm not sure if it's cheaper, but i do know that if the price drops between now and when the dvd releases, they will honor the lowest price.
- thank ya! getting it ready super soon :)
- you should! can't wait to start reading my new books!

Megan McIlvaine said...

seriously, she is! oh good to hear!!...i'm excited to start reading. it's currently on its way to my house :)

Katie Cook said...

Ahhh I know the distress of packing away Christmas decor, so sad!! And you are coming to SD? So fun! Come visit me in Orange County! It's only an hour or so:) Want a photo shoot? haha!! Much love darlin…love Katie:)

Megan McIlvaine said...

eeeeep! i would LOVE love love to meet up. i'm coming out to visit my brother and sister-in-law, and i have no idea what our plans are. but if not this time, another time. i'll be back out and we will make it happen! :) i'd love to plan a trip out there to see family AND meet up with all my cali blogger friends. that would be the greatest!

chantelklassen said...

Oh man, I keep hearing good things about Frozen and Catching Fire, I've got to watch both of them soon! Loved reading Bittersweet, have you read Bread & Wine?

Megan McIlvaine said...

oh goodness gracious. yes, you need to watch them! i haven't read bread & wine yet, but i hear great things about that one too!!

Jessica Angeles said...

So exciting that you ordered Frozen! It's definitely one of new my favorites! The music is amazing!! I have yet to watch Catching Fire, it's next on my list after Saving Mr. Banks...I'm kind of Disney obsessed :)

Angela said...

I'm with you, Christmas for life!! :) I haven't seen Frozen yet but I am SO excited too after hearing how much everyone loves it.

Kiki said...

You are going to looove Bittersweet. I'm a little bummed I got that book from the library and didn't get a copy for myself. I'm going to have to add that one to my to-buy list. Have you read any of Shauna's other books?


And I cannot believe I didn't think about pre-ordering movies online until now! Seriously, I sometimes question my age and internet skills when I learn these kinds of things. Also adding this to my to-buy list, haha. :)


Lastly, I LOOOOOOOOVE your glasses! Post a full photo of them soon?



p.s. I just got your card in the mail today! Thank you, thank you, thank you! It was the bestest mail this girl could ever get and now I have another pretty business card to add to my collection! Now I really need to invest in some of my own...

Kiki said...

Also, how could I forget to mention Jennifer Lawrence? I'm so glad I got to see her acceptance speech (didn't get a chance to watch the rest of the Golden Globes, though) and see that photobomb, too. Just another reason why I love that girl. :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

i know! i immediately went and bought the soundtrack after seeing Frozen :) girl, you must see Saving Mr. Banks...SO good.

Megan McIlvaine said...

hooray!! you will love it. promise :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

oh yay! seriously, so glad to hear how much everyone loves this book. i haven't read any of her other books yet, but i probably will after reading Bittersweet!
YES, new glasses post will be up tomorrow or thursday i think. :)
so glad you got the card! :) and you should totes get you some business cards, girl! they are so fun!

Megan McIlvaine said...

i didn't watch the golden globes either but i did look up her acceptance speech yesterday. she's adorable.
