If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you may have noticed something recently… and if you don’t follow me, you should be! We finally made our St. Patrick’s Day gingerbread house! It was SO much fun. And a big mess… but totally worth it! I bought a gingerbread house kit in December and we never got around to it, so it was still lying around waiting for the perfect time. You can still find gingerbread house kits on Amazon, like this one (totally peanut free – unlike most others!!) or make your own if you’re interested in creating your own leprechaun house. There’s still time! And there’s always next year too!

This is totally random, but every time I add things to the trashcan on my computer and my sound is on, I’m amused. I get a strange kick out of the sound of digital items being crumpled up and thrown away. Is it just me or do you find that amusing too?

We just watched Spectre and Mad Max: Fury Road. I was expecting to really like Spectre with all of the praises it got from so many people. We liked it, but we didn’t love it. The last one was definitely better. Don’t get me wrong…it was okay and definitely well done, but we liked Mad Max so much more. I know when a movie is good when I manage to stay awake through the whole thing. That’s probably pretty sad to say, but to me, that’s a sign of a good movie since it’s able to keep my attention. It was action packed from start to finish. I’ll say it’s definitely not for everyone, but if you like action movies in a post apocalyptic world, then you should definitely give it a try.
