• I'm officially a Colorado state resident. (Well, ok, maybe not officially. I haven't gotten a new DL yet, but I did send in my voter registration yesterday.) Shockingly, it's not much different from New Mexico? There's a lot of Broncos merch everywhere, which is hilarious and terrifying. As I keep being told, I am deep, deep in the heart of Broncos country. (And apparently football season has started, or something. Who cares, though, since baseball season is about to be over?)

• You guys, moving is expensive. I've bought furniture and rugs and some art, and a whole host of other things that we need.

• I'm currently not working much. There's a product info workshop/training thing tomorrow, and there's a whole slew of online training manuals (which so far has been videos of text and a voiceover reading the text to me, and then a quiz to make sure I was paying attention) that I'm going through now. I'm seriously considering doing some knitting while I go through these things. I also now have a work email? I guess technically I'm sort of on the management team. I'm more like a team leader. Anyway. Work email. Training. Wooooo.

• We booked our wedding venue last week! We're going to be getting married at Tapestry House here in Colorado. The best part? They're an all-inclusive venue, so they'll do everything. Or at least, all the things we want them to. We'll probably go with an outside photographer and we have a friend who wants to DJ for us, but they'll do the food and the booze and the decorating (although my mom might do the centerpieces) and they'll even do the cake if we decide not to find someone else. It's a huge relief to not need to do all those things, let me tell you what. There are still things to do, obviously, but I feel so much more relaxed about the whole prospect now.

• I'm using all my OTP icons for these posts (which people reading on LJ won't be able to see) because of the wedding talk.

• Books! Since last I wrote, I did indeed get my hands on Ilona Andrews' Magic Binds and it was a really good addition to the series. It included, hilariously and helpfully, a wedding between the main character and her fiancé. (I say helpfully because it pointed out a few things about weddings that I'd forgotten and allowed me to chill a little. So. Yay for that!) I've also read Kendare Blake's most recent book, Three Dark Crowns, which was excellent, even if (at least) one of the twists was something I was expecting. I'm really looking forward to the next one in that series. Now I'm reading the latest Kara Gillian book, Legacy of the Demon, by Diana Rowland, which is proving to be very entertaining—although I don't remember with perfect clarity what happened in the previous book. (This is ok, because Urban Fantasy series tend to gloss over previous events in the beginning, so it's working out just fine for me.) After that I'm probably going to dive into the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas, since I really like her other stuff and there's a handful of them plus assorted novellas so it'll keep me entertained for a while. And then after that I plan to reread Garth Nix's Abhorsen books so that I can read the newest addition to that series, Goldenhand.

• Oh, also: NaNoWriMo is coming up. As always, I'm planning on participating. I can't even begin to imagine what my November is going to look like, but I'm hoping I'll have some time to put some words in. Fingers crossed and all that.
