I know, it's been forever since I've done a Week in Pics post, as well as a Monthly Favorites, but as you know from all my other posts, things have been nuts!
I have list (a long one) and pics for all of them! This will be a double monthly favorites, with a return to your regularly programmed blogging schedule from here on out, I promise! I'll probably post the weekly pics late Thursday night, since Fridays are now my work day, where me and LA Knight come together to hang, watch tv and movies, and edit until we're done, which lately has been about 3-4 AM. We don't leave things half done (except watching stuff, we often only see a tiny bit of what we want to) so that our work is done and available for your viewing pleasure ASAP!
Anywho, onto the favorites!
Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series
OMG, all of August, I started and finished this series. The first one was blah, I only read it because I love the movie (yes, I love the movie and dislike the book). But it gets better with each book! Totally a great series
The Heroes of Olympus Series
Percy Jackson's sequel series. OMG, this series. Absolutely amazing. Each book is better than the last, and I can't wait to read the next one, House of Hades. I'm getting this series from the library, and I'm on the waiting list for it!
Star Trek: Into Darkness
Wow. Just...wow. I didn't think it could top the first one in the new movies, and it totally did. Benedict Cumberbatch was absolutely awesome, the plot is great. Just, WOW!
Man of Steel
I literally watched Star Trek one week, and this the next. I went with LA Knight and IK Scott to see Star Trek, but it was out of theaters, so we saw this instead. And this movie is AMAZING! Love it! Although I'm miffed about the new Batman choice, because this movie rocks, I'll watch it. Because of this movie!!!
Agents of Shield
August was pretty dead, but several shows came back this fall, and this one is brand new. And I gotta say, this is beats Legend of Korra. Korra hasn't matured, and while Coulson's return is kinda dumb, I love the team's dynamic. Loving this show!

Currently watching a vid as I'm writing this right now. She's so upbeat and funny, cute and her tips are great. Love her!

Her Sleeping Beauty video is hilarious! I was hooked, just from that vid. She's super sweet, and I love her accent! Check her out!
This is a commercial in Thailand. I've seen it on Facebook and Tumblr (check out my Tumblr here: http://llobrien13.tumblr.com/). I get chocked up just talking about it, because it's so amazing and beautiful. A must watch!
In case you weren't aware, I'm LDS, and this past weekend was our General Conference. This was Elder Jeffrey R Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, his talk called Broken Vessels. In case you didn't know from this post here: http://lorienlobrien.blogspot.com/2012/08/ptsd-explanation.html I suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which includes several anxiety disorders and depression. So this talk really touched me. I've never heard a leader of my church talk admit suffering from it, nor mention of any previous leaders dealing with it. I think any one dealing with these kind of problems should watch this, because it's simply beautiful.
I bought these boots from Forever21 last year during Black Friday, and I've been obsessed ever since. No, they're not leather, but they're holding up really well. I also injured my foot Thursday, and these have been holding my foot very well while it returns to normal (almost there!).
Loft House Pumpkin Mini Cookies
This is a recent love, as in the past two days. But DUDE! So yummy! Too bad they're terrible for you... o.o'
Bath and Body Works Candle in Pumpkin Cupcake
DUDE! Amazing scent. It smell EXACTLY as what it says. I haven't burned mine at all, since it is a mini, not a large, 3 wick one. But I don't really need to! I keep it by my bed, and I smell it as I fall sleep, and it's so relaxing.
Okay, this is not my top 3, it's my top six, in order, not by month
Waiting for Superman by Daughtry
I don't know if this is for the movie, because I don't know anything about the movie, but this song totally speaks to me. I love it!
Young & Beautiful by Lana Del Rey
I haven't seen the movie The Great Gatsby, and I'm probably not going to, but this song! There are two versions, and I love them both! When LA and I were working, this came on my music player in an ad, and we had to hear it. We both stopped working and just listened, because it's so haunting and stunning. It's on a bunch of my playlists now. Beautiful
In Your Arms by Kina Grannis
First of all, have you seen the video? It's amazing! Check it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOu0DuxFAT0
But the song is addicting and super cute. Love it!
Just to Get High by Nickelback
This song has so much heart and is so personal. The passion in this song just speaks to me. And the message is wonderful! A must hear!
Unsinkable (Never Giving Up) by Sam Tsui and Elle Winter
This song was written for the Music is Medicine campaign for a 16 year old girl battling cancer. Watch the video here for more information: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6DYX-RpGNA
But if you can, buy it! All profit goes to benefit pediatric oncology research at Mount Sinai, where Cindy, the girl, goes. And it's just a great song about never giving up!
Amphetamine by I Can't Go On, I'll Go On from Bandslam
This song is so awesome. In fact, ALL the songs by this band in the movie is amazing! But this one has been on repeat lately! Check out the soundtrack, and the movie. So good!
So, that was kinda HUGE! But I hope you enjoy it, and I *PROMISE* that it won't be this long between posts, and the posts will be a little smaller.
