Hello October + Autumn Film Bucket List. 

It’s finally our favorite month of the year. Tucked right in between Sam’ September and my November birthday. I think the weather has us in homebody moods, even more than normal. There’s been so many good movies on too, making it all the more difficult to get us out of the house. Lately we’ve watched Manchester by the Sea, In Secret, and A Man Called Ove, all of which we highly recommend.

It’s finally fall break, which is a breath of fresh air at the end of my midterms and Sam’s endless string of projects. I’ve been fighting off a cold all week, so after a doctor’s appointment this morning we grabbed some coconut sticky rice and cold brew gelato from Dolcetti, and went to see Wind River at the Salt Lake Film Society to cheer me up. In my Adolescent Literature course this semester, we’re reading The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, and it’s interesting contrast reading about a teenage boy trying to get away from his reservation, and seeing how violence towards indigenous women hardly ever go reported, much less brought to justice, in Wind River.

We’ve been stocking up on some slow cooker recipes we’ve wanted to try since we bought our Crock Pot this past summer, but that are too warm to enjoy during hotter months, so hopefully the break will give us a chance to give them a go. Since I got sick, we’ve been living off a diet of soup and tea, but I’ve finally lost my taste for it, so we picked up some groceries to make pot roast tomorrow. If all goes well, I’ll include the recipe one of our posts. On the way home we talked about our favorite fall movies that we want to make a point of watching this season, we’ll put our bucket list below. Please feel free to let us know if you have some favorites we should check out! My momsy is in town this weekend to help me get better and with wedding planning, so hopefully by next entry I’ll feel as good as new. Take care, and stay warm!
