So here we are in December. Usually things are crazy around the holidays, but thankfully things seem to be slowing down a bit…well, sort of. We are getting settled into our cozy little house and we have been shopping away for Christmas (although, I’m worried our Christmas presents for extended family are going to be late *cringing face*). We also got our Christmas tree and decorations up, and might I add, we are severely lacking in the decoration department. Definitely need to work on fixing that. ;)
Friday night was also my company’s Christmas party at Northern Quest Resort & Casino. Let me tell you, our company knows how to throw a party! (even though I’m the one that does half the planning, they provide the funding for it, so it’s awesome). It was full of fun door prizes, food, cocktails, and lots and lots of dancing. Definitely the ingredients for a fun night. :)
Anyway, with December in full swing, here are my currently’s.
Arrow. We are taking a small break from Bones and trying to catch up on Arrow. We dropped off somewhere around Season 2, so it’s been fun catching up. I’m sure our break from Bones won’t last long though.
Also, I’ve been having fun watching all the random Christmas movies that are popping up all over the place on TV, love it! :)
“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” by J.K. Rowling, and “A Woman’s Walk with God – Growing in the Fruit of the Spirit” by Elizabeth George. I’ve been able to spend a little more time reading, but I need to wait on reading “Better than Before” by Gretchen Rubin. It was taking far too long to read 3 books at the same time. I seem to be handling 2 books okay, but it’s obviously still taking me longer to read than it would if I would just stick with one.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread! I made this on Monday and it’s pretty yummy! Thankfully we had friends over to help us eat it. It’s far too dangerous to leave that whole loaf for just 2 people, haha. You can find the recipe here.
You would think this is common sense, but make sure you have all the ingredients before you start. I thought for sure I had baking soda, but aparently not. There’s nothing more frustrating than having to run to the store in the middle of mixing half the ingredients together…seriously.
Kathryn Morgan’s YouTube channel. :) I’m enjoying her Vlogmas series. It’s kinda fun to watch while I’m making dinner or doing the dishes, even if it’s just watching some of her old videos. She also has some fun makeup tutorials and I love, love, love her ballet barre workouts and exercises. You can view both of her channels here and here.
Anyway, I hope you all are having a wonderful December! Be warm and stay safe out there! :)
