Before getting into today’s post I just want to thank everyone for their kind thoughts on Friday’s post. It means a bunch to me.
Right now I am riding a holiday high. Even though I am up to my eyeballs in tests, reports and presentations (3 in one class for example), the thought of Thanksgiving being only just over one week away is keeping me going. Then after that there’s only one month until Christmas. CHRISTMAS.
Just the word evokes a smile and the image of a million twinkling bulbs on a tall green tree. You know that feeling, don’t you?
Well, right now I am kind of in a positive mood, very unusual for a Sunday night, so I decided to skip any serious posts for the moment and instead update you all on some of my favorite things currently. Edition #3.
Current Book: Bitter Kingdom. The third book in Rae Carson’s series that I mentioned a few weeks ago. I actually went to a book fair recently and got to meet her in person so that she could sign my copy!
Current Music: All things Christmas. All the time. Scotty McCreery’s album in particular though. He has such an amazing low voice.
Current Guilty Pleasure: Facebook and Blog stalking. So thrilling, I know.
Current Nail Color: Does orange and yellow count from where my squash stained them? 😉
Current Drink: Water from my Brita Pitcher. No nasty city water for me.
Current Food: Same old, same old.
Current TV Show: Arrow, and Nashville.
Current Wish List: So many things… Right now though I’ve been looking for some local doctors as I’m getting the courage to visit one again and see if a different perspective has any new insights.
Time travelling is NOT on my list of requirements though for potential picks…
Current Need: Thanksgiving break.
Current Triumph: Making a dent in my homework. I didn’t finish as much as I would have wished, but certainly more than I expected being that my weekend was full of tempting distractions.
Current Bane of my Existence: Teachers who think we only have one class.
Current Celebrity Crush: Leonardo DiCaprio will always remain #1 for me, however I should probably diversify some. I’m kind of crushing on Josh Hutcherson right now. Watching his interviews he just seems tp have his act together. Pretty refreshing.
Current Indulgence: Cinnamon. Ya. I bought some at the grocery store this week and kind of have been sprinkling insane amounts on my food. I probably should stop because my stomach doesn’t seem to be dealing well. It’s just so good though!
Current Blessing: My parents for giving the gentle (and sometimes not so gentle) nudges to do things that I know I need, but do not want, to do.
Current Slang: Oh goodness. Not really slang. Almost the opposite of slang in that it makes me sound like an old granny.
Current Outfit: Blue Adidas athletic pants and a Minions t-shirt. (Remind me to take a picture and show you!)
Current Excitement: Catching Fire this weekend with my best friend!
Current Mood: Worn out.
Current Link: Recipe Redux. Among many.
And today I’m linking up with Katie at Healthy Diva Eats for Marvelous in my Monday!
