Friday Five: Songs I’m Embarrassed to Admit I Like and Update

Hey guys!  This week on the Friday Five the topic is songs ‘I’m Embarrassed to Admit I Like’.  In truth, I’m not really embarrassed by any of these songs.  They are all silly but I like a fun pop song on occasion.  They put me in a good mood.

What pop songs do you like?  Are there any songs you are embarrassed to admit you like?  Any bubblegum songs that are silly but you like them anyway?

As far as NaNoWriMo things are going really well.  I just passed the 25k mark so that means I am half way through and it isn’t half way through the month.  It isn’t quite as speedy as last couple of years but I’ve had a lot more going on, so that makes sense.  How are you guys doing on your word counts?

nanowrimo11-13This week was really fun.  I went and saw Home Alone on the big screen for the 25th Anniversary!  Home Alone has a special place in my heart because it is the first movie that really made me laugh my head off in the theater.  I saw it when I was 9 years old and on a special trip with my Grandparents to Disneyland.  I was a really independent kid so the story of Kevin McCalister defending his house and providing for himself was right up my ally.  I watched in a crowded theater and it was so neat to hear kids laughing their heads off just like I had 25 years previous.  It brought so many great memories.

Here’s my youtube review I think you will all get a kick out of.

 

Friday Five: Instrumentals and Nanowrimo Update

Hi guys!  I hope you are all having a great start of Fall (or at least that’s what it feels like here in Utah with things getting very crisp and cold this week).  I’ve been busy with NaNoWriMo so that’s why I haven’t posted on this blog this week.  My apologies for that but doing best I can.  My  novel is coming along pretty well.  I am ahead of the game as far as word count which makes me feel good because I don’t know how much I will be able to write this weekend with stuff going on.

I really like the lead character I’ve created and feel a little bad for the mess that is about to happen in her life.  Poor fictional characters and their hard life! 😉

How are you guys doing with NaNoWriMo?  How are your novels coming along?

FRIDAY FIVE

This is Friday so it also means it is time for the Friday Five!  This weeks topic is all about instrumentals and being a movie fan of course I had to include mostly scores as my choices but I love the 5 songs I picked.

What are instrumentals that you like?  What scores from movies are your favorite?  Put in the comments section and if you like the video I would love if you gave it a thumbs up.  Thanks!
