Reading: Insurgent, and The Writing Life by Annie Dillard. If you’re a Hunger Games fan, you’ll like Insurgent. Easy easy read, and quite captivating.
Listening to: Taylor Swift’s new album, RED, and Christmas music! (Spotify has Colbie Caillat’s Christmas in the Sand and A Very She & Him Christmas)
Thankful for: Mom’s Connection at First Covenant Church. I have loved meeting so many lovely ladies this fall, and the childcare is an additional perk.
Anticipating: Decorating our tree, taking Anna to the Advent program at church, and all the joys that come with watching Christmas through a child’s eyes. The big question: how many times will she attempt to pull ornaments off the tree before I go crazy?
Cooking: Butternut macaroni and cheese-there are a million different recipes on Pinterest. I combined several of them to make my own version. E-mail me if you want it!
Baking: Pumpkin cookies with maple cream cheese frosting. Next week I’m going to attempt Oreo truffles with a peppermint twist. I can’t wait for our church’s Christmas cookie exchange. Sugar overload…
Watching: Nashville (The return of Tammy Taylor!!) and Call the Midwives. It’s up close and personal, but really fascinating. Expires online in a few days so hurry up.
Wearing: My sweater Uggs, my red rain boots and lots of layers.
Any good music, book, tv, movie or recipe suggestions?
