Happy December, friends! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season...Christmas is right around the corner. :) Here are some fun links for your weekend:
currently awakening the Force...
...HAVE YOU SEEN IT YET?? I was so nervous about Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, but I LOVED IT. We went opening night which was so much fun. Rey and Poe and BB-8...ahhhh fantastic!
...also how cute is this A Capella Star Wars Medley that the cast of The Force Awakens sang on Jimmy Fallon?
currently listening to...Hide Away by Daya. I hear ya, girl. ;)
currently reading...Pioneer Girl by Laura Ingalls Wilder. So cool to get another perspective on the Little House on the Prairie series! There are more books in my December TBR!
currently Christmas shopping...on Rifle Paper Co.'s website because they have the prettiest stationery stuff.
currently Holiday outfit planning...excited to wear some of the things I got from ModCloth earlier this month! Watch the cat-filled haul here.
currently can't wait...for the Victorian-era Sherlock Special, The Abominable Bride this January. It looks AH-mazing!
currently worried about...costumes at Disney World. Have you heard the news? Disney security found a gun in a man's bag at the park entrance last week, and Disney had been upping security measures, installing metal detectors, etc. Security is absolutely important, and it's great that Disney is increasing its vigilance.
But as part of the increased security, Disney has also announced a ban on all adult costumes - and the ban (at the moment) will even apply to special events like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Star Wars Weekends, Dapper Day, and 24-Hr Day. Technically the Disney Parks have always had a policy that adults can't dress up on ordinary occasions - only for special events like MNSSHP and 24 Hour Day. But in recent years they've been very lax about the policy, and they've seemed to encourage the adult costumes and used them as a selling point for events like Dapper Day and Star Wars Weekends.
There's a thread on the DIS with lots more discussion about this. The costumes for everyone added a lot of magic to the special events, and I hope Disney will change the policy back and allow them at least for the Halloween Party. We were thinking about going to 24-Hour Day again this year - I would love to wear my Mary Poppins costume again - but I doubt we'll go if we can't dress up.
