Currently – December Edition

tree

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.

Currently Watching

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! :)

Currently Reading

“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.

Currently Making/Baking

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.

Current Obsession

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!  :)

Currently – November Edition

November 2

Oooh boy.  So this month is rather crazy (I know, I say that every month!).  It turns out we’re moving from our apartment into a house – Yay!  We are going to be renting a 3 bedroom house and we couldn’t be more excited about it.  It’s honestly been difficult to think of much else.  I  mean talk about nuts, it looks like we will be moving the week of Thanksgiving.  So while everyone will be thinking of their Turkey dinner and making sure the house is ready for guests, we will be living out of boxes and deep cleaning our apartment.  But hey, we’re THANKFUL we get to live in a house!  :)

So with that bit of exciting news, I’ll jump right in to my November currently’s.

Currently Watching

“Bones”.  Oooh my goodness, Mikey and I have been binge watching it and I have fallen completely in love with this show all over again.  We’ve been watching it so much that I’ve even had dreams of Booth, Bones, and Cam telling me how to do my job…um, yeah.  I’m not sure what we’re going to do with ourselves when we’re all caught up.

Currently Reading

“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” by J.K. Rowling,  “A Woman’s Walk with God – Growing in the Fruit of the Spirit” by Elizabeth George, and “Better than Before” by Gretchen Rubin.  Yes, this is the same list as last month.  Needless to say, I haven’t done much reading this month.

Currently Making/Baking

Apple Crisp!  The original plan was to make Apple Butter, but Mikey and I were craving something sweet, so we spontaneously made apple crisp instead.  It was delicious!

We’re also still working on eating our leftover Halloween candy.  Last year we ended up running out of candy and we felt completely horrible when the knocks came and we had absolutely nothing left.  This year we definitely weren’t going to make that mistake again, so we got 2 extra bags.  So naturally we got zero trick-or-treaters!  Not-a-single-one.  So we’ve had the candy all to ourselves…darn.  Honestly, in the back of my mind I was wondering if this would happen, so I specifically got everything chocolate just in case.  ;)

Current Obsession

I guess I would have to say Amazon.  Thanks to our vacation coming up in February (haha, guess who’s counting down the days?) and getting ready for our move, I have been visiting Amazon almost daily to look for things to add to my wish list, both for the house and for our vacation.  Our budget won’t allow for us to get many things, but it’s nice to dream anyway. :)

Anyway, I hope you all are having a wonderful November!
