Currently / / December

thanksgiving_1

Making / / Granola (this & this), chili and my grocery list.

Listening / / Christmas music of course, but also Colony House. I listened to their album four times in a row the other night!

Wrapping / / More like purchasing the presents to be wrapped. I always have intentions to be more organized, but somehow time slips away from me! 🙂

Watching / / Jordan stayed in Illinois longer than I was able to after Thanksgiving, so I rented The Fault in Our Stars while I had a few free evenings. I read TFIOS earlier this year, so I wasn’t expecting to get emotional. Wrong! I was totally that girl crying on the couch alone.

Anticipating / / Cuddling on the couch watching holiday movies with Jordan, decorating our apartment for Christmas, and fresh starts after a busy and challenging year.

What are you currently doing/making/enjoying?

/ / Want to leave a reply?

/ / Linking with Anne and Jenna.

  1. I haven’t watched the movie version yet, but I anticipate bawling as much as the book, even though I know what’s going to happen… Been making chili around here too.

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. It’s one of the few movies that is probably as good as the book…or at least almost. I’m 27 and I still bawled my eyes out.
    And..Chili during the holidays is a must.

  3. I always have to get my bum in gear with Christmas presents – at least for the last 6 years – because I have to ship them with enough time to get them overseas before the holidays. I try to aim for early December. SO much work though!

  4. The same thing happened with me and TFIOS. I read the book this summer and didn’t get too emotional over it. I watched the movie a couple weekends ago and it left me sobbing on the couch. I’m glad I’m not the only one!

  5. I’m listening to ‘Colony House’ right now on Spotify per your mentioning of them! I’ve never heard of them before, and their music is pretty good so far! I love discovering new music 🙂

    I tried to read ‘The Faults In Our Stars’ once although I couldn’t really get into it. Maybe it was because I knew it was for a teenager? But I want to see the movie. I’ve actually haven’t cried while watching a movie in awhile. But have you ever watched ‘Parenthood’? That show is a different story. Tears flowing!

    1. I LOVE Parenthood. It is our favorite show. I can’t believe it is almost over…:-(

      When I read YA I go into it with a specific mindset. Completely aware that I’m a bit old, but I base it off if I would have liked it when I was 15. 😉
