What I'm into {December}

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was the perfect combo of relaxing and checking things off the to do list. Saturday started off with a dusting of snow, which was perfect to out us in the mood for buying our Christmas tree and decorating our house. 


what I'm reading
+ The No Brainer Blog (more on this soon) -I read the whole book in one sitting, but haven't completed all the worksheets yet.
+ 7 -it's taken me entirely too long to read this, but I love Jen's writing style and I can pick it up when I have just a few minutes to read.
+ The Meaning of Marriage -I've only read the intro, but I can't wait to get into it.

TV show worth watching
+ Nashville -I never aspired to be a country singer, but I do love Connie Britton and admire a television show that's shot on location.

movie that I've seen
+ Hugo -my brother has been telling me to watch this one for months and we finally did last week. I love a good children's story. It was the perfect combination of intrigue and wonder.

in my kitchen
+  2 turkeys -in the freezer, but we haven't planned what exactly they're for
+ almond flour -I'm waiting for the perfect recipe to try it
+ mice...thankfully we've caught more than one. Sadly, there is evidence we have not caught them all!

in my ears
+ Christmas music and more specifically Pandora's Indie Holiday station, A Very She + Him Christmas, John Denver and the Muppets (a childhood favorite), Sufjan Stevens' Songs for Christmas

what I'm looking forward to
+ Christmas and all the anticipation that comes with this time of year
+ Snow! Last winter was quite disappointing as far the amount of snow, so I am hopeful we will get a few good storms
+ Baking for the holidays

What are you into lately?

  2. Yes, we are currently on a mouse hunt too. I don't know what keeps drawing them. They think the Barefoot Hippie home is a haven fro the elements or something.

  5. I'm watching Nashville too! Love all the music, especially Scarlet's voice :-)

    I'm still trying to finish "The No Brainer Blog", it's so good, just hard to find time to read.

  6. Your read list is perfect. I am reading The Meaning of Marriage right now, although semester craziness has put it on hold for a while. 7 and The No-Brainer blog are on my to-buy list! :)
