So, apparently it’s November now. Actually… apparently it’s Christmastime, according to all the stores and retailers. We’re not even gonna go there!
Inspired by Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli, I thought I’d talk a little about my current obsessions, thoughts, books, snacks and more. I’d love to hear what you’re currently up to, as well.
Emma by Jane Austen.
I figured it was time to start making my way through the classics. I’m getting through it a little slowly, but am pleasantly surprised at how much I’m enjoying it. Any Austen fans? =)
Currently Listening To
Andrew McMahon‘s new album, In the Wilderness.
I heard there was another big album release last week … cough, Taylor Swift. I still haven’t listened to it. I’m not real excited about the direction she’s taken. What were your thoughts?
I’m making a conscious effort to pin (are you following me?) more than just food porn. Right now I’m obsessing over these booties and cuffed jeans for fall:
Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I can’t help it. I love it. I never actually watched Gilmore Girls while it was on, so it’s like discovering a whole new show.
Kim (@PBeechie)’s Chili Pumpkin Turkey Meatloaf. It’s soo good with this Chipotle mustard I have. The recipe is SO easy, and lasts me 6 meals.
I also picked up the Pumpkin Pie Larabar, since I’m a sucker for seasonal/pumpkin anything. Here’s how I felt about it. Have you tried the seasonal flavors yet?
Currently Excited About
21 days ’til I head to Los Angeles for Thanksgiving! I’ll be spending almost a full week with some friends I haven’t seen in awhile…
Then I have a visitor coming to Austin in early December, and will be heading home for a week at Christmas. Lots to look forward to over the next two months!
Currently Griping On
$6 Fireball shots at the bar. WHO DOES THAT?! The whole bottle costs like $17… okay, I’m over it.
Currently Thankful For
This weekend’s extra hour of sleep, brighter mornings, and temperatures cooling down in Texas (to the 70’s — I’ll take it).
Current Wishing For
The ability to take life one day at a time. I’m looking forward to a lot coming up, but I don’t want to wish the days away.
I started watching Shutter Island with a friend this weekend, and couldn’t finish it! It creeped me out hardcore. Has anyone seen it?
On Friday I ate Halloween candy, drank alcohol, and just didn’t care. It was fun and not something I do all the time, so no regrets.
I hope to do some blog changes/maintenance this weekend. Stay tuned! : )
Busy busy! There aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do. But I thrive on the business… it’s way better than being bored, right?
- Share some of your “currents” — book, tv show, confession?
- What are you excited about, thankful for, wishing for?
