Weekend Links / / New Year

IMG_2325

How are we all feeling about January 2015? So far, I like it much better than January 2014, mainly because Nashville isn’t in the middle of a polar vortex. Two thumbs up for Southern living!

I received the sweetest package from Kelsey and Erica, the hosts of one of my favorite podcasts: The Girl Next Door Podcast. They ran a giveaway in honor of their shared birthday and I actually won! They filled my box with their latest obsessions. The mulled cider candle left the whole box smelling like Christmas.

Vegan Green Bean Casserole / / I will be saving this for Thanksgiving next year. I’m assuming I could simply sub out all-purpose flour for GF flour? Anyone tried that before?

DIY Candles / / Allie shows us step by step how to create our own candles. I love how she recycled an old Anthropologie Volcano jar for the finished product.

Gilmore Guys / / Jordan and I have been in another Gilmore Girl’s marathon recently. This happens almost every year (you can’t just watch one) and I am not complaining! I never tire of Stars Hallow. The Lorelai’s were on my brain when I discovered the Gilmore Guys podcast. It’s interesting to hear a guy’s perspective on the show. It’s just too much fun.

Explore / / Katie’s perspective on exploring locally, completely aligns with how Jordan and I like to live. Out of state travel can sometimes put a dent in the budget, but we’ve always tried to take advantage of local spots to satisfy our adventurous spirit in between larger trips.

Happy Weekend, all!

  1. Oh my, first of all, congrats on winning! I can never win anything in giveaways, seriously! Checking out the links you’ve provided. Have a great weekend! 🙂

  2. That looks like a fabulous giveaway you won! I love the idea of exploring locally. Especially in a city like Nashville, I think there is so much to see and do!

  3. I have never seen Gilmore Girls (I may be the only person who hasn’t) but I’ve been toying with the idea of starting it. I worry though that I’ll get sucked din and won’t be able to stop! Funny thing though…I just heard about the Gilmore Guys podcast and heard it was great. Perhaps I will have to start both now! Happy New Year to you!

    1. Well, if you are going to get sucked into a show I would recommend Gilmore Girls. You might even like watching it with your daughter’s. When it was live I watched with with my parents (I began season 1 at 14).

  4. DIY candles sound like a fun thing to try – I need to check that out. I’m with Anne – never have seen Gilmore Girls, but keep meaning to start it! Thanks for linking up – I hope you are having a great weekend!

  5. What an awesome package! That candle sounds like it smells amazing! My husband got me lots of candle making things for Christmas, so I’m excited to begin making some!!

  6. So glad you loved the box of goodies and thanks for sharing the podcast! I really must watch Gilmore Girls. I can’t believe I’ve never seen it.
