Monday Moments

Hey, everyone! Happy Halloween! How has your week been? I'm not going to lie, my week has been pretty great. 
Although I really need to get better at taking pictures. 

Yesterday the Captain and I went to Target and got me a new notebook for NaNoWriMo. I had originally planned on using an old notebook that I had lying around, but then I realized I'd already written in that one. We all know that you can't start a new novel in an old notebook (am I right?). Plus, I'll take any excuse to feed my notebook obsession.
This is one of those years where I'm really not sure what I'm going to end up writing about. I have a couple different ideas but I'm not sure which one that I'll stick with. 
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo this year?

I tried the Blue Iguana for the first time as well! It was pretty good. No, I did not eat the beans (beans are not my favorite). We almost NEVER get dessert, so it was nice to try out the Caramel Flan (and I don't actually approve of spelling carmel that way, but that's the way that they spelled it). It was more chocolatey than carmely, but hey, still good!

This was actually on Friday. We went on a sort of double date to one of the Captain's friends' house. Her husband made these delicious burgers (maybe one of the best burgers that I have ever had in my life) and this hot chocolate. This hot chocolate was basically like drinking liquid chocolate. It was what I imagine this Pinterest recipe to taste like. 

And lastly,

I don't know if you've noticed all my currently reading books have been by this author. I could rant a bit, so I will... 
I love how all her characters have random quirks that feel real, yet also somehow relate to the story.  I also love that in the first book I read by her a main point of the plot was one of Madeleine L'Engle's books (she is my favorite author of all time).
I tweeted at her because I once read a Pep talk for NaNo by Madeleine L'Engle saying that she wrote all of her books out longhand. Which is actually how I started writing my first novel. So I've thought about writing out a novel longhand, because I write differently longhand than on the computer. Then, finding another author that I've come to love so much, I wanted to see if she wrote out longhand as well. And she actually answered me back! I am so amazed. 
Needless to say, I will be attempting to write out my novel longhand this month.
Wish me luck!
