Prepping for Thanksgiving, the Holidays, and (oh yeah) My Movie

I cannot believe it's almost 2019. This year has flown by so quickly that I've barely registered it's almost my favorite time of year - Thanksgiving and Christmas and Hannukah and MY BIRTHDAY!!! The only thing reminding me that we have a seasonal change is the fact that all I want to wear are sweatshirts and drink soup.

The above is by Rebecca Minkoff (I rented it via RTR) but I actually created my own design for my movie (which we start filming on Friday). I plan to give a lot of these as gifts this year.

Speaking of holiday presents, I received this special delivery of gluten-free assorted treats from Popcornopoils. When I lived in NYC I used to inhale their bag of chocolate-covered popcorn on the subway ride home. Now they come in all sorts of flavors - from a classic Kettle Corn to Buffalo to  Unicorn!!!

I plan on sharing my sweet holiday present with the cast/crew of my movie. In preparation to finish directing, I've been watching a lot of movies (I left Moviepass and have been loving the AMC A-list). "Burning" is an unfortunate title for what's going on in LA right now but it was one of my favorite films of the year, and had us seriously craving some Korean food afterwards. (This Seafood Pancake at Western Doma Noodles is NOT GLUTEN-FREE.)

The day after I wrap, it's turkey-time! We plan to hole up for a few days by ourselves (no internet, no TV, no family, no friends) for Thanksgiving. Instead of bringing an entire pie which I can't eat anyways, we'll stock up on some mini pie holes and quiches from one of my favorite bakeries, The Pie Hole.
