Currently... December

Wednesday Words of Wisdom – December 4, 2013 | thesassylife:

Somehow I missed this last month! The Currently link up with Anne is one of my favorites. I don't have to come up with my own topic today and that suits me just fine.

Doing...  a  30 Day squat challenge, working my ass off at work, planning an 11 year old birthday party the week before Christmas, trying to find a Hatchimal... Target is restocking them this Sunday. I highly doubt I will be one of the lucky ones but maybe. It is the "it" toy of the year and I never buy that crap but my 10 year old is dying for one and she's such a sweet kid, I'm at least gonna try. Speaking of her sweetness she is obsessed with Macarons so I am ordering a batch of these for her birthday party next week. How cute are they? Mac Lab is the shit, if you live in Atlanta go. If not check out their IG here.



Enjoying...Music and Food. This past weekend I saw 2 holiday shows and a total of 7 bands, it would have been 8 but I was stuffing my face with Korean BBQ  at Breakers and was late to the show. Friday night was The Struts, Kongos and Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats. All freaking amazing. The Struts really blew me away. I saw Nathaniel in the rain at Music Midtown and he is even better when dry. Sunday night I had dinner at Uncle Jack's Meat House and possibly one of the best beet salads ever. Don't even get me started on the Chipotle Maple Glazed Bacon app with homemade peanut butter for dipping. I died. Actually luckily I did not. I went to see James Bay, Charlie Puth, X Ambassadors and Train  at the Jingle Jam and they were all awesome.





Cooking...Well honestly not that much because hello busiest time of year.  I have been pretty good at meal prepping and that has been my saving grace because I just don't feel like cooking that much right now. Every time I make something I make a lot of it and we eat on it for days. Thank God my kids like my cooking. But, I am gearing up for Whole30 round 3 on January 2 so all of my indulgences are about to get reigned in real quick!

Wrapping... Ummm, I bought the stuff to wrap with. Does that count?

Playing..... Records. I bought a record player. So far I love it but I just got it and will really review at a later date. I have a feeling this could be my next obsession. I love the sound and scouring vintage shops and flea markets for treasures like old albums is totally my thing. Isn't it pretty?



Happy December!

Hump Day Confessions

Confession...I don't really but Christmas and I do have a love hate relationship fo sho. I think this year is going to be better though. I decided I'm getting a real tree again this year. It's been at least 5 years of hauling out and assembling the fake one. The truth is I really don't enjoy that so not doing it. I'll have a real one and I will throw it in the woods behind my house when I am done with it. Recycling.

As I have nothing blog related planned all week so let's just wing it and do an old fashioned Hump Day Confessions post shall we?

I don't know where my blogging juju is but it's gone-zo lately. It returned briefly last week and it was so nice to have time while in Michigan to get up and write over my coffee in the morning like I used to. I swear if I was loaded and didn't have to worry about things likes bills, I would be a full time blogger, paleo/healthy chef, write cookbooks, cook amazing food and just putter around doing creative things all day every day. Universe... if you are listening.

So between Black Friday and Cyber Monday I knocked a bunch of shit off my personal Christmas list this year. No one buys me presents so I always figure I should just buy my own. I got a few things for the kids too. I can't wait until the packages start rolling in. I don't even feel guilty.

I went to Costco last weekend and even though it was not on the list I bought a big box of bows, 4 big ass rolls of coordinated wrapping paper and a 6 pack of magic tape. All I have left to pick up is a pack of gift bags and I can literally start wrapping today. Operation "enjoy Christmas Eve for once in your life and not spend it wrapping till 2 am" is underway.

I made a conscious decision awhile back to stop going out so much for a number of reasons... drink less, save more, waste less time and avoid drama to name a few. What I discovered is that I don't miss it as much as I thought I would but I am still not being as productive as I would like to be. I do find that the money I am not spending in the bar is going directly to Amazon Prime however. Less time going out = more time to shop.

I am more excited than ever to do some holiday baking this year now that I have my new mac daddy double ovens. I have actually put "baking dates" on my calendar because I am secretly an 80 year old woman. For real though one of the things I can't wait to make again is Serbian nut roll like my Grandmother and her sisters all made and it legit takes a whole day. But it is so worth it.

I made an appointment in January to get my eyebrows done permanently. I am super psyched. One of my girl friends had hers done awhile back and I am envious every time I see her, they look perfect and she really doesn't have to do much to them at all but tweeze a stray or two. No more drawing on, filling in, trying to fix my mismatched, thinning, patchy brows. IMO bad brows just look awful  and lack of them altogether just makes you look old and tired. If you have no idea what I am talking about check out my girl @gabriellerainbow on IG and see what kind of magic she works. And no I am not going to Quebec, she's coming to Atlanta!  Merry Christmas to me.

What's your secret today?
