Break Out a Board Game

Image
Work started up again for me today, after a relaxing and productive two-week holiday.  As much as I love my job, I get so much out of the time off to recharge my batteries.

Some of my favorite memories from this break are the times spent playing games!Games are a great way to de-stress, have fun, and connect with others. A good game will get you totally immersed in the moment, and that's where the magic happens.


One snowy/rainy night, we broke out a classic Monopoly board at my parents' house and got to competing.


It's been so long since we've played Monopoly--well over a decade, for sure!  I barely remembered the rules, but I may have been alone in that.  When Eric asked how much play-money we were each to start with, my father amazingly recited from memory exactly how many of each bill we should receive.  When we finally found the instructions, it was confirmed that my dad's memory was impeccable!


The night was spent in laughter, a fun time had by all!

See The Delivery Man

In November, David Wozniak will find out that he is the biological father to 533 children.
Today, Walt Disney Studios is releasing the full-length trailer to 533 bloggers.


The Delivery Man looks like a feel-good Thanksgiving comedy.  It all comes down to the meaning of family, and I'm proud to be part of the family of bloggers bringing you the trailer premiere as part of this debut event.



The movie stars Vince Vaughn, who plays David, the irresponsible man who seems to be losing grip on both his job and girlfriend.  He is trying to find purpose in life, when it suddenly falls right into his lap.



Cute, right?  Looks like the perfect combination of laughter and sentiment.  So bummed I have to wait until November 22 to see it!  Mark your calendars :)

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you all had a joyous holiday with your family and friends, and got some time to ENJOY the long weekend.  I'll give my reminder from last year toThank Your Bodyand all the wonderful, miraculous things it does for you on a daily basis. 

My Thanksgiving was lovely, thank you!  My mother hosted a delicious dinner, and I spent the evening surrounded by family--wouldn't have it any other way. The only thing missing was a dog, if anyone wants to send one my way. ;)  You're surely also wondering what we ate. One thing that there was plenty of: VEGETABLES.


And plenty of leftovers, which I put to good use.


On Thanksgiving morning after watching the parade, my mom and I took a walk around the neighborhood, and let me say: It was gorgeous! What a perfect fall day! The air was crisp and clean, leaves crunched under our feet, and I just barely needed the sweatshirt I'd put on.  Perfection!  I'd forgotten how much I enjoy just spending time outdoors in the…
