What I'm eating: After Thanksgiving I haven't felt like stepping foot in the kitchen, but my brother sent our Christmas gift early and I'm so excited to make a few recipes from the Skinnytaste Fast & Slow cookbook.
What I'm reminiscing about: I have season 1 of The OC on DVD, but I haven't watched it in years. Earlier this week I came across a random channel and it was playing the first episode so I thought I'd watch it for a minute or two... but I got sucked in and ended up watching the first two episodes and now I think I might fire up the old DVD player to watch the rest of it because it gave me so much nostalgia!
What I'm working on: In blogland, I'm working on finishing up the last changes to my newish design. I've been putting off updating my labels and figuring out what categories I want to focus on, but I'm really happy with how everything has turned out so far.
What I'm excited about: So many things-- my parents are coming to visit for Christmas and I'm more excited than I can express!
What I'm watching: I didn't think it was possible, but I think I overdid it on the Hallmark movies. Aside from a couple favorites they all kind of blend together with the same story lines and very little diversity, so I'm more than ready for all of the Christmas classics. I'm also looking forward to the new season of Top Chef & Fixer Upper.
What I'm listening to: The Mariah Carey holiday station was really disappointing me, so I went into the holiday stations and came across Hipster Holidays, and it's the best thing ever. Festive and chill all at once.
What I'm doing this weekend: Hopefully making gingerbread loaf & making a big dent in our holiday shopping.
What I'm looking forward to next month: I'm going to go with the obvious answer for this one and say Christmas!
What else is new: Our Christmas tree has so much character this year and I'm loving it. I've grown to appreciate getting a real tree more and more every year, but I'm pretty content just getting the first tree we see that looks like the right height. This year our tree has some super long branches sticking out in random places, and some branches missing in other places.
