Happy December! Only 25 days until Christmas!!
November was a pretty fun month for me. I was able to take some time off work and have a couple long weekends. Which were very welcome. I went on a mini vacation to Edmonton, Alberta this past weekend. It was my nephew's 6th birthday and he really wanted to go on an airplane for his birthday. So, my sister, my little brother and my nephew went for 4 days. We spent the majority of the time at West Edmonton Mall, we went to the water park, the amusement park and did some Black Friday Shopping. It was pretty fun, I was also able to visit with one of my BFFs who lives out there.
This is one of like 3 pictures I took on this trip.
But really, you know what November was really all about?
Guys, I binged this show on one of my long weekends. Mind you, it's only ten episodes, but still. This show, this show. Oh man, this show. Brilliant. I didn't think I was going to like it, I honestly thought it would be kind of boring. I sat down one day to watch a couple episodes to see how Matt Smith (like seriously- My Doctor) did as Prince Phillip. Next thing I know, I am completely hooked. The Crown was SO well done, and well researched (I think). I really was fascinated with the politics of everything, and Queen Elizabeth's internal struggle. Watch this show.

Favourite Read of the Month
This book crept up on me. I randomly saw Margot from Epic Reads talk about it, and thought I needed to get it read. Guys, you need this book in your life. It's such an amazing story. About AIDS in the 80's, when the disease was just emerging and there was a lot of fear. Tell the Wolves I'm Home is about a girl who befriends her deceased uncle's lover. It's such a beautiful story.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom (4.5 Stars)
Indigo Nights by Louise Bay (4 Stars)
Favourite Listen of the Month
This one also surprised me. I wasn't expecting to be so moved by it. About a man who dies and who believes lived a rather "average life" but really didn't. He met so many people and influenced their lives in so many amazing ways. I loved it.
