Happy Thanksgiving Day! I know today is Thanksgiving, but I decided to start celebrating Christmas this week. Hate if you want, but it's really, really hard to be in a grumpy mood if you're immersed in Christmas culture. I went full out Tuesday night. I listened to Christmas music on the way home from work, picked up a reindeer pen (he has one eye, but I still love him). As soon as I got home, I put on Christmas knee-high socks and watched a really cheesy, but seriously therapeutic, Netflix original Christmas movie. I'm slightly ashamed about this decision, but it was great! And I'm going to do the same freaking thing at least once a week. To continue this festive mood, I've rounded up a few things that caught my interest on the world wide web this week . So grab a glass of wine, spiked apple cider or hot chocolate, and take a breather before or after your food coma sets in. 

Food For the Soul: I've been binge watching Oprah's Super Soul Sunday episodes on Youtube this week, and they've been helping me push through a ton of funk. These episodes feature amazing leaders who specialize in wellness, activism, overcoming addiction and depression, pushing yourself to achieve the unthinkable and so much more. I really loved the Gary Zukav: The New Perception of Community with Oprah Winfrey episode. It was so different from what I expected, and it made me think about the soul and how we spend our time in this lifetime. It's almost an hour long, so if you have the time, I highly recommend it. Some of the Super Soul Sunday episodes are under 15 minutes, which is perfect if you're short on time.

Weekend Fun: Animal Crossing is finally available on our smart phones. This is the best and worst thing to happen to me because this was my all-time favorite GameCube game back in the day. I was borderline addicted, and I have a feeling I'll be obsessed with it again as soon as I download it. That's not going to stop me from playing the game, but I'm accepting that this might be an issue down the road.
