I can't believe another month has flown by. I love when bloggers share the things they've been reading, doing, or watching lately. Anne inspired me to write my own What I'm Into today.
I'm in the middle of reading Bringing up bébé by Pamela Druckerman and really like the ideas and concepts she presents.
Since Olivia (my niece) was due on December 5th, we had a Ready to Pop baby shower in the middle of November. I made a breastfeeding survival kit for Heidi. It included handmade burp cloths and a nursing cover.

I also made Olivia a hooded towel and washcloth set and a few more blankets.
I made two table runners and have Christmas fabric ready for a pennant to decorate our front room.
I started knitting again last night and am making a little mauve and purple beanie for guess who? Olivia! She just can't wear something that isn't handmade by her Auntie.
Last weekend I made a small Thanksgiving dinner. I successfully made a turkey and it was delicious!
Nearly every post has spoken to me in some way from Donald Miller's Storyline Blog. My personal favorites were:
I took a big leap and bought Michael Hyatt's Get Published while it was on sale last week. I haven't started the program, but I have high hopes for it helping me with my writing.

We went to the movies and saw Lincoln with Heidi and Caleb. It was a great movie and I thought the casting of Daniel Day-Lewis was perfect. I enjoyed the filming and appreciated the way the cameras recorded a scene from the ground.
This month we went to Disneyland with Anthony's family and had a great time. But seriously, how could we not have a great time at Disneyland?
My favorite part of our whole trip was the conversations we had while standing in line for rides and driving in the car. Because of the trip, we have nicknames: inlaws (Anthony, Donna, Brianna) & outlaws (Scott, Chad & me)!
I loved recapping this month!
What have you been up to lately?
