Hey everyone! Thanks for your sweet comments about my new header – today I’m changing it a bit by adding a holiday theme. I think what I like about this plain white header is that I can add little things to fit the season if I want to!

Today I wanted to do a “Currently” survey. I’ve seen it on a few blogs, but mostly on Nicole’s blog, The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie. Since I think she’s super cool, I’m going to copy her and do the survey!


Loving: SNOW! I know it can be a pain, but for someone who doesn’t have to drive anywhere (aka dig out a car or deal with traffic) it’s mostly a blessing. I just love when it’s snowing at night and it feels like you’re in a whole different world.

Reading: I just finished reading The Dinner by Herman Koch.

The Dinner

I saw the book on Peanut Butter Fingers and since I usually like Julie’s recommendations I thought I’d give it a try, especially since I managed to get it free from the library. Well… I didn’t like it at all. I forced myself to finish thinking I’d like the ending, but nope. The book was written in an interesting way, going back and forth between a dinner at a fancy restaurant with two brothers and their wives, to events leading up to that dinner. However, I just didn’t like the characters and for me that’s a big part of the story.

Next up I’m not sure what I’m going to read! Any good recommendations? I have a few books left from when Chelsey and I exchanged books (oh… a year ago). So I might read one of those (haha, again, free!) until Christmas when I think I’ll get a few from Santa.

Watching: Pretty Little Liars. It’s an illness. Seriously. If I have a free evening, come 5pm I am in my apartment binge watching PLL until it’s time to go to bed. I watch it on Netflix on my Kindle so I can just have it near me when I’m making dinner, cleaning up, or working on my computer. I’m already on Season 3…

Besides that, I’m forming a list of Christmas movies that I NEED to watch! How have I not watched any this year? My favorites are Elf, Home Alone, The Santa Clause and How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Anticipating: GOING HOME!!! I am so excited to head home for the holidays! Although, I’m not going to lie, I’m a liiiiitle nervous about the road trip home. I am a huge fan of road trips, but I’m used to driving a good bit, or at the very least sitting up front. It will be interesting to see how I handle 8 hours in the back seat with this one sitting on top of me:


Good thing she’s cute.

Listening to: Pandora Glee Holiday Station! Need I say more?

Planning: a few holiday get-togethers! When I’m home in Kansas City I always try to get together with friends and family who live there, but since it’s Christmas there are a LOT of people home! I’m planning a reunion of my best friends from grade school; coffee with my aunt and cousins; a “Girls Night Out” with my mom, her friends and their daughters; and I’m sure plenty more on top of the other holiday parties and Christmas family events I have!

Working on: My job search…

Wishing: That I get a job? Hahahaha that was easy! I actually have one job that I applied to at the end of last week that I’m just DYING to get an interview for. Would it be considered stalking if I just sit outside their building?.. Hmmm.

Sipping on: fancy coffee drinks! I used to only order coffee with a “splash” of milk added, but since doing Jamie’s Intuitive Eating Challenge, I’ve loosed up quite a bit and order more fun coffee drinks when I’m in the mood. Has anyone tried Starbucks’s Gingerbread Latte? Heaven. Seriously.



Your turn! Answer one of the questions above!

What’s your favorite holiday movie? What’s your favorite drink to order when you’re getting coffee?
