(Belated) Things I Love Thursday!

I know this is late but I ended up sleeping almost all day yesterday because I had a terrible headache!

1. Harry Potter
Can you believe that the movie series is coming to an end? I know there is two parts to this one, but just the fact that Deathly Hallows is coming out is mind boggling. I remember the first time I saw the trailer for Chamber of Secrets and wasn't used to it because it felt like Sorcerer's Stone had just come out. My 11 year old self is quite upset that after the second part comes out, 10 years of my life will be over. I guess this is the last part of my childhood that is still happening, and I know when it is over, my childhood will be officially over.

2. Dream Kitchen
This is my dream kitchen! Seriously. The tile floor, the yellow walls, the 50's feeling. It is perfect!

3. Old Ginger Ale Ad
The minute I saw this ad, I cracked up! The kid's face is just priceless! I immediately needed a poster of it. While I am still looking for an actual poster, I think I may just end up printing it out on photo paper.

 4. Cats and Dogs
While just about everyone knows I am a cat person, I can't handle myself when it comes to cats and dogs fighting. Play fighting...or annoyed fighting, not ACTUAL fighting. But it is just so comical, who can't laugh at it?

5. Old Zoog Disney shows and movies
I seriously miss zoog disney. Mainly Disney Channel from 1997-2001. I actually found Bug Juice 3 on youtube. All the episodes. I spent hours watching it. Who remembers that show?! I am looking for So Weird next. They give me a serious case of nostalgia and I wish they had a channel that is just all old zoog disney, because honestly, I cannot stand what is playing on disney anymore.

She says she's leaving on a Sunday...

Hello everyone!

So it is the week before Halloween and I couldn't be more excited! Yet I am still upset that October went by so fast and I was sick for half of it. But I have been watching horror movies all week on AMC! I can't get enough of them!

So this week is going to be fun (hopefully).

Wednesday- is my professor's last day in class. She told us news to day that her husband (who is in the military) is getting transferred back to Texas and they want him there next week. So it was a sudden thing and she feels really bad for having to leave us and having to find a replacement teacher for the rest of the semester. This actually really upset me because I LOVED her! She was so nice and was very understanding about everything, and would talk about movies all the time in class. I just hope that the replacement is nice as well, because nice teachers/staff at my small community college are hard to come by!

I also have to go and drop my other class this week, I hate going to main campus, which is probably why it has taken me so long. Buh.

Friday! Brad and I are (planning on) going to a haunted house. Erebus is a 4 story (I know it looks like three stories, but I believe one is a basement) walk through haunted house and I am so excited to go, I haven't been to a haunted house in 5 years. Seriously? It's been that long? I always want to go to them (who doesn't) and there have really been only two that have scared me, but I think this one will!

Saturday! Brad and I are planning on going to the movies to see Saw 3D. I thought I heard on the tv that they have a 2D movie as well, and I would rather see that, as I don't really like 3D too much. It hurts my eyes and makes me sick. Which upsets me that EVERY MOVIE is in 3D now. Buh!

I really want to see Due Date as well. And I think I'm going to have to see it twice (once with Brad, once with my mother) And I really REALLY hope this one is good because it is so hard for me to find a comedy movie that I actually think is funny.

SUNDAY! HALLOWEEN! My nieces are dressing up as butterflies and going trick-or-treating for the first time. I am on candy duty with Bradford if he is coming over for Halloween. I won't lie, part of me wants to take them trick-or-treating, only because I miss doing it myself.

What are your plans for Halloween? 
Are there any good movies that you want to see?
Have you gone to any haunted houses this year?!

Things I Love Thursday!

I have read many blogs that do a "Things I Love..." and I started doing one on my LiveJournal for Tuesdays. But with my classes being Monday and Wednesday, Tuesday is my 'make sure to get all my homework done' day, and I just don't have time to do it. So I have moved it to Thursdays!

1. Friday the 13th marathon.
There has been a Friday the 13ths marathon going on all week, and I love it! I haven't seen a lot of the movies in a while and half the time, when I do watch one, I have no idea which one it is!

2. America's Next Top Model
I have been super sick the past couple days, and today I ended up missing class and staying in bed all day. I ended up watching cycle 5 all day, even if I did fall asleep halfway through. I always seem to watch the same cycles though, nothing past cycle 7. For some reason I don't like the newer ones.

3. This shower!
My goodness! I would love this shower/bath tub. I could see myself in it all day, every day.

4. Fresh Fruit Cups!
This looks so good right now, and honestly, with my sore throat, cold, fresh fruit would be amazing!

What are somethings that you guys loving right now?

Favorite Videos this week.

Thanks to my boyfriend, Bradford, and the help of Dave and ChuckTheFreaks' (a radio station in Michigan) website, I have stumbled upon a man named Steven Kardynal. He is one of the funniest youtubers I have seen in quite a while. I spent all night watching the Peacock video.

And the fact that he lives in Michigan and I could run into him at any point, makes it all the better.

Picture dump from the zoo!

Bradford and I went to the zoo yesterday to celebrate our 9 month anniversary. We didn't snap as many pictures this time, mainly because we had been to the zoo a couple months earlier and I accidentally left those pictures on there as well, so I didn't know how much space I had for photos.

Plus there were A LOT of children there this time, it was crazy! But here are some of the ones we did take! The photos are out of order, but I am far too lazy to put them in order, and I don't remember which animals came before others!
