Fairy-Tale Obsessions, and Other Things

Have any of you been watching the new ABC show "Once Upon a Time"? There are only 2 episodes out so far, but I have fallen head-over-heels in love. I am such a little girl at heart, but anything fairy-taleish automatically gets my stamp of approval. =)

I think that slight obsession with fairy-tales has influenced my life in a lot of ways. I love shows and movies that remind me of the good in people, rather than exploiting the evil that is so prevalent in our world. I'm not going to get in a deep theological discussion here, but I just wanted to mention the show and see if anyone else was watching it!

In other news- we had an amazing weekend. We got to host a Halloween Party last Friday, went out to eat at a fabulous Italian restaurant and then to the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra concert with some friends on Saturday, and then went to a laid-back party/bonfire hosted by my parents on Sunday evening. A very full, enjoyable weekend!

Tonight, I think we will be hunkering down inside and turning out the lights to avoid trick-or-treaters. Call me a grumpy old lady, but I'm tired and I don't feel like shelling out more money for candy! Maybe next year...

What did you do this weekend? What are your plans for this Halloween night?


  1. Yes! I'm so excited about a fairy-tale theme show. I have been crazy for altered fairy tales ever since I can remember - writing modern versions, ironic twists, and what-if scenarios - it's so fun to take a story that EVERYONE knows and play around with it. I'm really looking forward to new episodes of Once Upon A Time.

  2. Brynalyn- I know! How is it that those stories just never seem to get old? I love the modern day twist they are putting on the fairy tales, it's so fun and unexpected!

  3. I don't watch tv but that show might be something I'd watch. :) Sounds like you had a great weekend! We went trick or treating with the kids tonight and I'm exhausted and ready for bed. The only thing better than hiding and not giving out candy would be hiding and eating the candy. ;)

  4. You should check it out Ange, it's so good! Aw, I bet it was fun to be able to take your kids trick or treating! I'm excited to have little ones of our own so we can get in on the Halloween fun for reals. =)
