Hello! I was trying to focus on producing something content-worthy for y’all this morning, but I kept wanting to write about everything. I literally just drafted five post ideas. I’m a mess.
Since my mind is all over the place, I feel like a random list of thoughts and things is going to be our best option. Thinking Out Loud, if you will. I hope you’re up for reading them, and if not, check back this afternoon for something more healthy living related.
Grab a cup of coffee and let’s chat!
What’s been going on here…
1. It’s been snowing for over 24 hours.
Like, full on sideways windy blizzard snow. What gives?
Driving last night was a treat. For those of you who have never driven in snow, I can’t tell you how scary it can be in the dark when all markings of lanes disappear. It took me three attempts and misses to make a U-turn yesterday, and I almost got stuck on the turn around. Let’s just say I will be driving as little as possible over the next couple of months.
2. Our household is filled with funny voices.
Both Scott and I are subjects of a cold and have pretty stellar coughing fits every now and then. This resulted in both of us losing our voices. I’m pretty sure I sound like the man, and he sounds like the woman. #ridiculous
3. I don’t know what’s worse…
Losing by a basket or a landslide?
The Pistons have been great at putting up a fight and then losing by a couple of points the last handful of games. It’s kind of heartbreaking. Hopefully Stan Van Gundy does his magic (<- pun intended) and takes us somewhere this season!
4. Scary movies are not for week nights.
Scott thought it would be a great idea to watch Saw IV after the game last night. He started falling asleep during the last half hour, and I was pleasantly annoying by waking him up every thirty seconds. You can’t put that kind of movie on and leave me to watch it by myself! No sir.
That series of movies is twisted, that’s for sure. After I stayed up half the night unable to turn off my thoughts, I decided we should save the horror films for Friday and Saturday nights only from here on out.
5. It’s taking everything in me not to decorate for the holidays!
Getting out the holiday decorations and putting up the Christmas tree makes me ridiculously happy. It’s taking every ounce of will power not to go grab the tree and put it up right now. There’s just something so calming and homey about having our tree up at night. I can’t get enough of it!
Black Friday, it’s happening. <3
6. I really want to see this movie.
I just saw the trailer for the new Cinderella movie and I’m already obsessed. It looks like they did such a great job of bringing my favorite (okay, one of my favorite) childhood Disney Princess and her story to life.
7. I sincerely hope we don’t turn into frozen popsicles.
I’m excited to attend my first University of Michigan football game this weekend with Scott! Our dear friends gifted us with their season tickets (thanks, Joseys!) and we are really looking forward to getting over to The Big House with some friends on Saturday!
The weather is predicted to crawl back up to the 40s with a little bit of sunshine. Please, please be right weather folks! *fingers crossed*
8. I need to make more soup.
This freezing weather has me craving hot soup something fierce. I’ve been itching to create a new recipe and hope to make a new soup or stew soon to share with you guys. Do you have any specific requests or recipe inspirations? Send ’em over!
