Hey, hey and happy last day of January!
This is probably the ONLY time I’ve ever said this, but umm, FINALLY? Just looking back at some pics while I was getting this post together, I felt like the first of the year was forever ago…I mean, didn’t I make that Detox Quinoa Salad like last year or something? Oh wait, I did! 😉
So, like I mentioned last month, I really like doing my “Currently” posts each month as I feel it’s a great way to look back on the last few weeks, but this year, I’m going to make a few tweaks to make them fit a little better. Enjoy!
I finished up the last of the Inn BoonsBoro* trilogy last weekend…and surprised the heck out of myself when I realized it only took me three weeks to read all three books! 😀 Seriously, I was a MACHINE this month…but it’s great to finally get back to my old bookworm days! Now I’m just trying to decide what to read next. I’ve got a lot on my
to-read list, but I’ve also got a few lying around the house that I feel I should pick up. I read a few chapters of Lost & Found yesterday, but I’m not sure if I’m loving it…so we’ll see.
*I just went to link this and found out that it’s actually a REAL place!! Omg, so cool!
Current Guilty Pleasure:
Facebook stalking…which is like masturbating…no one admits to doing it…but we all know the truth! 😳
Current Nail Color:
I’ve been rocking the “Ruby Slipper” from the super thoughtful package Melissa sent me a couple of weeks ago and while I don’t normally go for dark colors, I am absolutely loving this one…now I need to find a bigger bottle!
Favorite Show Entertainment:
Triple B, baby! Not to be confused with my love for a certain Guy who I’d love to trade professions with! No, I’m talking blogs, books, and my latest obsession, Buzzfeed! <- read that article! Omg, I died!
A shower…and breakfast! I just got back from a 5:30AM Body Pump class and while I’m TRYING to put some finishing touches on this post…my arms are shaaaaaaking SO BAD! Haha!
Over the last few weeks, the largest meal I’ve eaten was ONE plate at the Chinese buffet where I met Broccoli Mama and Broccoli Sister for dinner on Tuesday…lately, my meals have been more of the “snackish” variety but there’s still been room for a few of my food phases…
Why yes, those ARE Scooby Doo Puffs…with peanut flour and banana!
Turkey tortilla with Greek yogurt, salsa, and gauc…
And of course many many
monkeys granola bars! 😉
I couldn’t resist when I saw this on sale at Publix earlier this month…it doesn’t really taste like eggnog, but reminds me a lot of my other seasonal favorite, Sugar Cookie Sleighride! In other words, YUM!
Running a mile! Cutting down my time on that mile! Averaging 8 hours of sleep almost every night (Benedryl induced, but still). And clocking in at TWENTY accepted Foodgawker submissions! I’m still working my way through old posts, but the hardest thing is going to be deciding on which pic to submit for my PB&J Granola in a couple of days! 😯 #foodbloggerproblems
Current Bane of Existence:
The wind, the cold, the static, my innate desire to become a human slip ‘n slide…somebody bring on the summer heat so I have something new to complain about!
Celebrity Blogger Crush:
Ok, not really an “indulgence”…I just wanted to post the pic of my Peanut Butter Pumpkin Banana Wrap again, but I have been on a healthy chocolate sauce kick again…as in I’m putting that shit on errrrythang! Honestly though, I’m proud of myself for the amount of non-food indulgences I’ve been lately…bubble baths, Victoria Secret shopping, and a little extra time primping…even if I’m just going to work!
The INCREDIBLE support of family and friends while I’ve been working to sort through some personal stuff over the last couple of weeks. Seriously, you know who you are and I cannot thank you enough!
Current Slang: So this is totally getting the boot! After a detailed discussion with Broccoli Sister over dinner the other day, I thought I’d share the fact that “selfie”, while I am an absolute narcissist lover of the act, the word has never actually left my lips. Maybe I’m too old for slang, but every time I hear “totes magotes” I think of this. 😆
Fuzzy robe, slippers, glass of cab…it’s an accessory! 😉
After much thought and consideration (for the linings of my wallet), I decided this week that…I’M GOING TO BLEND!!!
Who’s going? Are YOU going? I know Spoons is going! AndI’msoFREAKINexcitedtofinallymeether! 😀
A good night’s sleep last night and a workout before sunrise today? I’d say I’m feeling pretty damn accomplished!
What’s the last book you read?
Are you going to Blend…to meet ME?!
