weekend update.


RECAPS
-- i had both a Frozen movie night and a Catching Fire movie night this weekend. it's so fun having some of my favorite fictional people in my living room ;)

-- saturday morning video chats with my best friend. guys, she is so wise and gives really good advice.

-- my #etsyswap2014 gift came in on friday! i squealed a little when i opened it! can't wait to show y'all everything in the link up on april 3rd! :)

-- wedding work days. one of my sweet core group girls is getting married on mother's day, so some of us got together to work on some wedding prep projects like addressing invitations and creating paper flower bouquets. the countdown is on!

-- i went to see Divergent with two of my coworkers yesterday. i've read the books and had heard mixed reviews of the movie, but we all really liked it! sure, they changed some parts and left others out, but i still think they did a great job. even though i knew what was going to happen, i was still so tense the entire time!

I loved Divergent, too! I haven't read the books yet, but after watching the movie I'm going to try! What faction did you think you would fit in? Mine was between Candor and Abnigation.

i really liked Divergent. They definitely changed some things - but it wasn't horrible and i think the changes made SENSE for a movie - especially if people hadn't read the books (they would have no idea what was happening if some things weren't changed/explained). FROZEN WAS SOOOO GOOD! i am so glad i bought it - seriously. i went off of your review and was like "if megan likes it, i'm sure i'll like it" and bought it hahaha. i can not wait for the etsy swap link up! so many good things!!!
p.s. thank you for the little shout out! ;)

I love Divergent, I have a reading group of seventh graders at school and at first they were daunted (dauntless pun intended:) about the size of the book, but we finished it quickly and one student even finished it, got the second book from the library all while we were still reading the first. I love a book that encourages students to dive in to the written word.
