Five Things

Today I want to share with y'all what I'm currently up to. . .

Reading. . .
I just finished up "A Season to Wed" which was a fabulous collection of wintertime romance stories which I'll be reviewing soon here on the blog :) Next up will no doubt be one of the Nicholas Sparks books I've got in back-up.

Don't judge, it's Fall/Winter and the perfect time to be cozy and cheesy!

Watching. . .
At this moment, The Pioneer Woman's Thanksgiving Special is playing (I do love some Ree Drummond), but last night I shamelessly watched The Best of Me and cried my eye-balls out.
Oh, and I finished up One Tree Hill while ironing, can you say...depressing?

Drinking. . .
Cold weather has me craving hot drinks, whether that is hot coco, hot tea, or coffee I crave it all.
Currently I'm drinking the best hot apple cider that Chris and I picked up from Sam's.

Using. . .
I have been using tons of different kitchen gadgets lately, lots of cooking has been taking place since I've been on break from school!
My favorites include my Alabama shaped cutting board, my knife block (love it!), both of my crock pots, and the other night I used my immersion blender for the first time to make butternut squash soup.

Wearing. . .
Well, when I'm at school I have to wear nice clothes-my favorites being Old Navy Pixie Pants and Lilly Pulitzer Elsa tops, oh and my favorite Old Navy lace up flats!
But since I've been on break it's been all jeans, boots, and long sleeves OR sweatpants and sweatshirts. . .oh and fuzzy socks!

Listening To. . .
I have been indulging in just a little bit of Christmas music, but when I'm not listening to that I've been loving Eric Church's new album Mr. Misunderstood (and his older album The Outsiders!)

What have y'all be up to lately, let me know below!

Until next time. . .



  1. I've been dying for a pair of lace up flats, I need to check out the old navy pair. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I haven't watched One Tree Hill, but everyone says it's good!
