Each year brings new milestone – both big and small. One of life’s biggest milestones is getting married, a topic that is on my mind a lot recently! In addition to the excitement of planning my own nuptials, I’m also officiating a wedding this week. A close friend of my family is having a Hawaiian-themed luau wedding on Halloween, and I will be performing the ceremony as well as throwing a Halloween-themed bachelorette party for the bride the night before. I love weddings and I love Halloween, so I’m really excited!
Because I love everything wedding-related, it should come as no surprise that I enjoy watching bridal reality shows, like My Fair Wedding with David Tutera. I actually got to meet David Tutera during BlogHer this year, as he was making a special appearance at Dixie’s expo booth as their spokesman. Naturally, I had to stop by to say “Hi” and get a photo!
I’ve had an incredible year, getting the opportunity to travel all over the country and have all kinds of amazing adventures, from visiting Netflix HQ to interview Piper Kerman during that same BlogHer trip, to this month’s visit to visit to San Pedro for World Animal Day. October also marks a smaller milestone for me, as I wrapped up my last scheduled trip for 2014 and plan to spend the next few months in Seaside to regroup, make plans and goals for the rest of the 2014, and enjoy the holidays at home!
Now that I’ve been home for a little over two weeks, I’ve had a chance to start catching up on my Netflix viewing. I haven’t been watching much of any shows over the summer since I haven’t been home, so now I’m enjoying the chance to unwind when I get a chance. I like watching Netflix while I eat lunch, since I can start and stop from the same spot in whatever I’m watching and view it in small segments whenever I want. This month, I watched all of BoJack Horseman, a new Netflix Original adult cartoon series about a washed up ’90s sitcom actor, who also happens to be a horse. I didn’t know what I’d think of it, but I ended up liking the show – I think it’s probably most entertaining to watch if you work in the entertainment industry! In a similar vein, I just started Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, a documentary about one of my favorite writers.
What are you watching this month? Are you celebrating any milestones?
