This past weekend, Tyler and I headed out to one of our favorite restaurants. While there, we began to discuss the upcoming winter season. Last spring, we’d come up with a Summer To-Do List, and while we did a pathetic job of completing it, we decided it would be fun to do the same for this coming winter.
Of the many items listed, I am most excited for ice skating and watching all of the “Best Picture” Oscar nominations.
I am not an ice skater by any means, but I recently took a group of students to a local rink, and after several laps holding the wall, I actually did pretty well on my own! Not only was it fun, but it is also an entertaining form of exercise, a healthy challenge, and an opportunity to wear cute winter accessories.
I am also thrilled about the opportunity to watch some amazing movies. One of the reasons I realized Tyler and I were meant for each other is because we both love the theatre and we have similar movie preferences. In fact, a favorite date early on in our relationship was to go see the Disney movie, Tangled. I don’t think he realized that it was actually a Disney musical, but I’m so happy he appreciates animation.
The official nominees haven’t come out yet, but we are doing our best to make educated guesses. So far, we’ve seen Gravity and Captain Phillips, and we are both dying to see American Hustle. Awards season, here we come!
