  3. I'm so behind on this, seeing as it's a few days past Thanksgiving, but I love these printables. There's a lot I'm thankful for - I don't know if I can whittle it down to 10 things! I'll just use a few cards :)

  5. April until Orphan Black!? I was so surprised by how good that show was. I wonder if it's out simultaneously over here, seeing as it's a BBC America show. Off googling now...

  6. I bet it'll start around the same time for you. It's only when the BBC shows are aired on PBS over here that we have a delay, it seems.
