Up at the Office

Today's office movie was Disney's "Up." Have you seen it? What did you think? I have to admit that I was like meh about it when I saw it in the theater, but I did enjoy it a lot more the second time around. I think the movie had some important themes- the value of keeping a promise and knowing when to let go. I almost teared up at the end (not going to ruin it for those of you who haven't seen the flick), but resisted since I was at the office.

I went to spin class tonight. I had to go because my favorite instructor was teaching. I find her energy really positive and attitude encouraging. Towards the end, I could feel my upper thighs burning from the effort, but I heard her say "Come on, Tina..." and found myself able to finish the last 15 minutes. Sometimes I just need a little push...I think she knows it. She's teaching on a morning 1 hour Super Spin class on New Year's Eve, and I plan to go. Maybe she'll play some Black Eyed Peas. It'll be a good way to end the year.

Continuing on my effort to use craft supplies that I already have, I made these cute Valentine mini cards with buttons that I found in Mom's sewing box. I used the same heart punch that I used for the origami panda Valentine from yesterday's post. They are 3 inch square so I think the size is great to include in family lunchboxes or use as a gift tag.

Song of the day: "United State of Pop"- DJ Earworm. What a weird DJ name, but memorable. This is the song that's a Mashup of the Top 25 songs of 2009. I had this playing on repeat at the office (I'm still listening to it as I'm typing up this post). Anyone that walked by my space might have seen me bobbing my head to the music (with headphones, of course). What? It's a good tune! Like you don't bob your head to music. Admit it. ;)

I like the card. Very cute!
I loved seeing Up, I think that you are right about it being better the 2nd time around. I think it was an important step that Pixar and Disney made to use such heavy themes. It really added to the movie!
Good luck in your new years spin class :)
