Nordstrom coat (similar); Target jeans (similar); Asos sweater; Sorel boots; ℅ Skip N’ Whistle “ugly Christmas sweater” tee (seriously it has cats and Christmas trees. I die.)
>I also own this sweatshirt from Skip N Whistle that I wear every single day with my sweatpants at home. It is ridiculously comfortable.
>>It was snowing like crazy when I took these pictures on Friday. I use a tripod and manual focus it on the wall before stepping into the frame, so if you look close you can see the snowflakes falling in front of me. Smart camera;)
Since I’m feeling lazy today I think a Currently post is a fun idea. I’m pretty nosy by nature and love to see what other folks are up to, hoping that’s normal? Feel free to add your own Currently’s in the comments! (I don’t know which blogger started this trend, but I saw it most recently on Living in Yellow and The Daybook. Pure genius, these ladies are.)
Reading: I just finished Death of a President on my Kindle last night. It is super detailed about the four days right after JFK’s assassination and was fascinating. I’m going through another Kennedy obsession and re-reading all of my books I have on the subject (I collect them!) I need a new book to read, too. Any suggestions?
Searching for online: The majority of my time is spent looking for Christmas presents for my kids and getting that DONE. This ring and this band is on my personal wish list (which I send to my husband and he nicely purchases for me. Hey, it works!)
Eating: The leftover candy that falls off of the kids’ gingerbread house;)
Watching: I’m loving The Witches of East End on Lifetime, Total Diva’s on E! and my fave movie of all time (Father of the Bride) was on TV today. Love. And Girls starts in January. Squeeee!
Wearing: Right now? The sweatshirt I talked about above and sweatpants. I think my sweatpant wearing percentage is about 70% of the time right now.
Wishing: For all my Christmas tasks to be done. I love the holiday, but shopping, wrapping, planning, buying and sending stress me out. Which leads me to….
Drinking: I bought a case of Lime-a-rita’s a couple of weeks ago and those rock my world, as do Angry Orchard Hard Ciders (crisp apple only.) On the non alcoholic route, my Keurig makes an amazing Chai Latte. YUM.
Cooking: This is mostly a chore for me, but when I run out of ideas of what on earth to make I look through The Pioneer Woman‘s website and also The Girl Who Ate Everything. Making this Mexican pizza tonight!
Making: Christmas cookies with my kids next weekend. And peppermint bark with white chocolate and candy canes. Mmmmmmmm.
Smiling: At my daughter singing all the songs from the movie Frozen like the little star that she is. Girl’s got talent!
Hoping: To take a breath and enjoy the little moments of the holiday season and not get caught up in my to do list. This is hard for me, but I’m trying.
Enjoying: How pretty everything looks with twinkly Christmas lights. I’m not taking them down. Ever.
Listening: to Christmas music, 24/7. Mariah Carey Christmas, 4 ever.
Doing: My best to work out more than once a week this winter. Where is my motivation?
Planning: Organizing my house room by room and purging what we don’t need. This makes me freakishly happy.
Noticing: How nice so many Bloggers are and how the relationships I make here are so fulfilling. I love reading comments, answering e-mails and learning from those that seem to be hitting it out of the park idea wise. There are some talented ladies out there.
Obsessing: Over this hot pink coat that Brie wore last week. It is perfection.
