Welcome to another Monday Must-Reads, Volume 3!
Happy Monday, y’all! I’m still on a high from this weekend. Kyle and I hosted our first real get-together in our home. We had friends over for Friendsgiving, and it was so much fun. It was nice getting to bring friends together from different stages of our lives, especially Kyle who had friends from his hometown, friends from his time in Japan, and a friend from his most recent deployment all under one roof. This was the only Thanksgiving celebration we’ll be having this year, because we’re planning on going to Canada during the Thanksgiving holiday. We’ll be traveling to Toronto and Montreal. It’ll be my first time visiting Canada, so I’m hyped.
On another note, the internet has been giving me all feels this past week.
1 | Every year for her birthday, Colleen Ballinger raises money for childhood cancer by hosting a live event on YouTube and giving away prizes. Over the last three years, she’s raised over $200,000. The live event for this year’s fundraiser was last night, but you can still donate money to this incredible, incredible cause.
2 | I can’t believe I’m just now stumbling upon James Corden’s Crosswalk the Musical bit on YouTube. I recently watched this one that promotes the new Frozen 2 movie, and now I keep getting suggestions for more. I seriously can’t stop watching. They’re so much fun.
3 | This video legitimately made me cry. Ellen Degeneres invited two girls named Sarah and Kate onto her show. They are newly engaged, but Kate’s family doesn’t accept that she’s gay. I love how Ellen helped celebrate their love by bringing them onto the show.
4 | By now I’m sure you heard the news – Adam Lamberg is officially confirmed to join the cast of the Lizzie McGuire reboot, reprising his role as Gordo!
5 | I’m dying to get my hands on this matching onesie set for pets and their owners. You have to admit, Gunther and I would look too adorable rockin’ this look. #dogmomgoals
6 | Kyle and I decided to send out our first Christmas cards this year. We didn’t get any professional photos done. Instead we just shot a quick family photo with a tripod in our living room. We ordered these cute glittery Christmas ones from Wal-Mart, and I can’t wait to send them out.
7 | Are you a fan of the Wine & Crime podcast? (*ahem* you should be) Someone created a Buzzfeed quiz to see which Wine & Crime gal you are. I got Kenyon, and I’m pretty satisfied with that.
8 | Sex trafficking stats are at an all-time high, which is both devastating and just downright scary. Twitter user @sincerelyteex started a thread to raise some awareness, and the thread is full of tips for keeping yourself safe, including some tips from officers.
9 | For one of our recent date nights, Kyle and I went to see Mean Girls Broadway on Tour. 10/10 recommend! Check out their tour dates to see if they’re performing somewhere near you soon. It’s 100% worth watching, especially if you’re a fan of the movie.
10 | Because I can’t resist mentioning Kristen Bell twice… She was a guest on Jimmy Fallon recently, and the two of them sang a series of Disney Songs that gave me life.
