A "What I've Been Up To" Post

just because music is fun. pun intended. 

+ Book club. Oh book club. This month we read Ladies Night and by that I mean "they" read Ladies Night, however I will proudly admit that I made it nearly one third of the way through. And it's not because I didn't enjoy the book that I didn't make it all the way through, it's because of sleep. Does anybody else have this problem where the minute you start to try to read your eyelids close and your whole body demands you shut down? I think it's God's way of saying "Sleep child. Reading is for losers." He is a smart smart man people. But back to book club--Monday night we gathered around the table with 4 bottles of wine and proceeded to remain seated there for over four hours. Of those four hours I think we discussed the book for 8 minutes. Anytime you can hear mother's discuss stories about how they have to describe the anatomy of our "parts" to their children, take advantage. You will laugh for DAYS.

+ Craft Happy. My sister and her friend recently launched this new business of their's and last night was the first event. I was deemed wine drinker slash photographer. I am not one for crafting however I can mingle like nobodies business so that's what I did. Here are some shots. Props to you sister for putting on such a fun event for people to come to. If you are local, check out the site here and be sure to register for the next event once it is announced!

+ Christmas Shopping. Just kidding, I haven't bought the first gift yet. #killmenow

+ Shopping for myself. That's still in full force, no worries. My most recent favorite finds came from My Sweet Nomsa where everything happens to be 20% off right now. Holler.

+ Working out. Technically I haven't started yet but I'm going to. Typed while eating pizza. It's thin crust, contains zero cheese, and has herbs on it so whatever, it doesn't even count as "pizza". More on this subject tomorrow though. 

+ Making a recipe book. That's right, I am finally taking the time to compile and print a real life recipe book that houses all of my favorite, tested and tried, recipes that I love. If you are interested in a copy of your own, let me know in the comments and maybe I'll consider printing more than one but rather like 200 so that all of us can eat deliciously together. I do not promise that my recipes will make you skinnier, however they will make you a heck of a lot happier. 

+ And on that note, that's all I got. This concludes my life as of late sprinkled between wearing yoga pants and sweatshirts every afternoon, taking baths, staring at Christmas lights, getting as close as possible to the wick on peppermint candles without scorching my nose hairs, and learning Soulja Boy. Big things are bound to come in 2014 with the line-up I've got goin' for me. #dreambig
ps. a few small and larges are left of Love, Yellow if you are interested. I'd tell you what the items are going to be but then I'd have to kill you. Unfortunately for you, I'm trying to stay out of jail as long as possible.

  5. Any food with the word "thin" in it automatically means it makes you thin, duh. That's just science!

  6. i compiled a cook book and had it printed at blurb.com - giving it as gifts for family for Christmas (it will be paired with a gift card to a restaurant - coincidence? i think not)

  7. These are amazing. I was laughing the whole time (which made my husband glare at me as he is on the struggle bus trying to rock two kids to sleep) + that pizza looks amazing, I would count it as a complex carb ;)

  14. Our book club involves lots of yummy food, wine, gossip, and about 7-10 minutes of book discussion. I love it!

  17. Ummmm YES to the cookbook! That is actually one of my dreams...to have my own cookbook. It's like we're separated at birth or something. It would be fine with me. You're freaking awesome and your sister is adorbs. We could totally be sisters. Go buy some Christmas presents, you're running out of time! That's your sister speaking there! ;)

  18. The "American Blogger" documentary you took part in during the summer... is that available to watch yet??

  19. Funny you mention that you didn't finish your book club book. I run a book club for the alumane chapter of my sorority and I RARELY manage to finish the book before our meetings. Case in point we have a meeting right after Christmas and I haven't even started the book yet. Whoops! Also, absolutely love the E necklace!

  20. I'm pretty sure I'm looking at a pair of go-getting sistahs! Kudos to both :) And lol on the Christmas present front - it has happened for me yet either, and we'll see how long it takes for me to have my first anxiety attack over it.

  21. What an exciting business adventure for your sister! Good luck on the cookbook, I've been "meaning" to compile mine forever! I'd love a copy of yours when it's done!

    ReplyDelete
  22. How much of your recipe book is gluten free??? Because I'm probably interested. Or maybe I'm just interested in all of your recipes that pair well with wine :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm totally in on the recipe book. As long as it is personally delivered. I just want to hug you again. #creepster

  24. I'd love a copy of your recipe book!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
