Today was the first time I realized it was getting close to Fall. Why? Because we walked into Starbucks this morning, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back!!!!! Oh yeah, baby!! My favorite Fall drink! Woo hoo!!

I was so happy that I didn’t even mind that my children were chasing each other around the store. That is until I calmed them down with chocolate milk and cookies. I know, I know, more sugar. But it worked at the time.

Here’s a picture of Georgia enjoying her Starbucks drink. Like mother, like daughter.

Then we came home, and I forced Eric to sit down and join Netflix. Yippee skippy!! Eric wasn’t too happy when he quickly realized that I had found a new obsession. In only a few moments, I had about 30 movies in my queue. I also added friends, such as Morgen and Sadie, and had fun looking at all the movies on their lists. If anyone else is a Netflix member, let me know so I can add you as a friend and judge you by the movies you like to watch.

Tomorrow, I am off to the actual theatre to go see Halloween (the remake)! I can’t wait. I’m sure it will scare me so much that I won’t be able to sleep for days. I don’t know why I do this to myself, but I am such a huge fan of the Halloween series, and Michael Myers is so scary that he literally makes me want to pee my pants.

I will write up a review this weekend after I see it. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, you can check it out below. Freaking scary!

You just now joined Netflix? You have thirty movies in your queue? How quaint.

No, I don't want summer to go away yet. I can't take the scary movies. I remember the first rounds of Halloween. Scared me to death. Have a great day and long weekend. :)

You know I've rated like 1300 movies, so you need to get busy rating. That way Netflix can make suggestions for you.

But if you like the same movies as me, then you can just look at my Queue and be a copycat, I won't mind.

Of course, if you DON'T like the movies I like, then you suck.

Hurray for Fall! :)

I am excited about seeing this one too...I did a paid post on it and watched the trailer. It scared the crap outta me!

I have been a member of Netflix for over a year - and I have around 230 in my list! You'll soon learn the ways.

BTW, I stumbled across your blog yesterday and I have loved spending the time going back through the archives. You're awesome!

Neila! Gosh, it feels so long since I last dropped by. I just sent you a Netflix friend invite. I'm back baby! Love your new template!

damn you and your Starbucks jaunts!
I tried to get Lee to go to a Barnes & Noble yesterday, so I could get a Pumpkin Latte, but no go.
We ended up in a used bookstore instead....
I'm not sure how I feel about this "reimagining" of Halloween. Did we really need to remake this movie?
