The Circus is back at the Colonial Life Arena this week. Something that is kind of cool is I first started this blog because I was bored out of my mind during last year’s Circus. While not a full calendar year, it has been a full event year. I’ve watched most of the show this year already and it’s pretty good. The animals are my favorite. They have 11 elephants, which are so cute, tons of tigers, included a couple white ones, and the cutest dogs you have ever seen. I’m still trying to figure out how to convince someone to let me ride one of the elephants. And to anyone who sides with PETA when it comes to the Circus, no offense but you are crazy. I went to the back of the building where they keep the animals and saw the really neat, and heated, barns that they set up for all the animals. Trust me, those animals have the good life.
On a separate note has anyone else noticed that everyone is getting engaged? My mom just keeps saying that we are getting to that age; however I’m not sure I feel old enough to know lots of married people yet. But then again I still think of myself as a freshman in college so that might add to the problem. Don’t get me wrong, I’m super excited for everyone who has recently decided to tie the knot and I’m even more excited about going to a bunch of weddings. I just can’t believe we are actually becoming grownups. Eww no, not grownups because that’s boring. Let’s go with young adults. I am thoroughly enjoying hearing about everyone planning though. With all the cool wedding blogs, websites, and registries we can all build up our excitement about all the weddings with the brides to be. P.S I just finished a book called Diary of a Mad Bride by Laura Wolf which was very cute. It follows a woman who can’t understand why women get so crazy while planning a wedding but then starts to plan one herself. You slowly see her because bridezilla and how she makes it to the big day. I’m hoping that I can take some tips from this book and not drive my family, friends, and fiancé crazy whenever that time comes for me.
So Valentine’s Day is next week and I have absolutely no plans for it. The only thing I have in mind is to go see the movie Valentine’s Day because it looks super cute and has a ton of cool people in it. I’ve got to work a women’s basketball game that day, of course, so that cuts out most of the day. If you have any suggestions of what two very poor kids, like Andy and I, should do just let me know. I hope everyone has a lovely day though, and if you don’t have a significant other just know that I’ll be your valentine. ;)
Currently I’m reading: The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella. I’ve heard that it is crazy cute so I’m excited. I also just saw the movie Invictus a couple weeks ago, which was wonderful by the way, and it was based on the book Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Changed a Nation. I’m on the search for this book and I can’t wait to start it.
