A Who and Star Wars Weekend

I have to confess that I didn't put up a tree this year. Or decorations. Or anything. I'm only home for two weeks this year, so it didn't seem worth it. We will have to double up everything next year for a double Christmas, when I hope things are more settled down. This time is a little crazy.
My cat got this box for Christmas. As you can tell, she loves it a lot. She sat in it for about 5 minutes, then was over it.


We went to see Star Wars, and it was awesome. I'm not a huge Star Wars nerd (Harry Potter all the way), but I enjoyed it.

There was a guy at my work who came in complaining about it, but he can just get over himself. I hate when people nitpick movies to sound like they are cool.

Also, BB8 was one of the cutest things about this movie.


I get excited about things like getting a cute new welcome mat.


We finally caught up on the most recent three episodes of Doctor Who! I thought this season was really good, although I definitely want to rewatch it and some of the other recent seasons, because I like seeing them all together.

The Christmas episode was especially good this year, I thought. How cute were the Doctor and River?
I mean, there were so many great moments. Not a spoiler, but when they went in the TARDIS, it was hilarious. They are adorable, and I thought it was nice to finally have just them together.
I also want to steal every piece of her wardrobe this episode. All the sparkling dresses!


Hello, I am a cookie addict. I make cookies every week, and this week is oatmeal chocolate chip. These are from a mason jar mix Greg got me for Christmas, but here's a similar recipe which is basically the same ingredients.

How was your Christmas weekend? Did you see any good movies/TV?

Linking up with Biana at B Loved Boston today for Weekending.


  1. I love your cat! So adorable!! And that new welcome mat is really cute too. Have a great Monday!

  2. My husband said the same thing about BB8 - he wants one lol! I personally loved Chewbaca - he was adorable LOL! Glad to hear you had a great weekend girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. What a wonderful holiday! I thought BB8 was adorable too - the cutest! Have a wonderful week! www.HannahAtHomeBlog.com

  4. LOLing at the "My cat got this box for Christmas" haha! Oh cats!!

  5. Doubling up for Christmas next year sounds like the perfect way to make up for not having the time to decorate this year. I'm glad you loved Star Wars, but I can't believe that your coworker was nitpicking the movie. Does he remember Episodes 1-3? And you're totally right, BB8 was probably the cutest thing ever!

  6. I so loved Star Wars myself
    ... that little BB8 with the chicks... ahhhh!!!

  7. I feel like the last person who has not seen Star Wars yet... I am going to get there I swear! Your cat is a cutie, just like kids with toys... losing interest after about 5 minutes!

  8. ooookay i am so behind on doctor who so you have totally convinced me to catch up! i love river.
    kc is totally one of those nitpickers. we nitpicked the movie after we saw it. but it was still very good, and even kc liked it being the huge star wars fan / nitpicker he is.

  9. New welcome mats are so fun! They totally brighten up the place!

  10. I hope you had a chance to enjoy some of the Christmas season

  11. Cat in box pics always make me happy. :D
