Happy Wednesday! The end of December and 2017 is just a week away and the sun not rising until psst 7:30 is proof! The temperature has dropped off into true winter cold, and we’ve had several days of snow fall and shoveling under our belts for this season.
What we’re eating this week // Sunday we made a chicken pad Thai and Monday we made a roast in the Crock-Pot. With us heading to Pennsylvania for Christmas, we’ll just be eating leftovers from this two meals through the rest of the week.
What I’m reminiscing about // Three years ago today my now sister-in-law sakd”I do.” I always look back on the year’s adventures this time of year. I also remember Christmases past and the fun events each year held.
What we’ve been up to // December has been busy! William finished out the semester, we’ve watched a lot of basketball, we’ve hung out with friends, shoveled a good amount of snow, and cozied in for some Christmas movie watching!
What I’m watching // Christmas movies! Beloved favorites like The Santa Clause trilogy and Elf, cheesy Hallmark & Netflix stories, comedies like Home Alone and Home Alone 2. I still need to watch Miracle on 34th Street, White Christmas and Mrs. Santa Claus this season though!
What I’m reading // This month I’ve been reading a lot of chick-lit Christmas stories. It’s like reading a goofy Hallmark movie and this month, it’s all I’ve wanted to read!
What I’m listening to // I’ve been enjoying Christmas album favorites! For me those include NSYNC, the original 98* Christmas album and their new one, Michael Buble, Trisha Year Wood’s Sweetest Gift album, the two Alabama Christmas albums, particularly Thistlehair the Christmas Bear, and the classic Christmas stations on Google Play.
What I’m doing this weekend // We’re spending Christmas in Pennsylvania this year. I’ll get to spend time with my Grandma and Aunt & Uncle, and her kids and their kids are coming too. It’ll be fun! I also think we’re going to try and go to the Christmas Market is downtown Pittsburgh on Saturday which I’m looking forward to!
What I’m looking forward to next month // January is so unknown at this point! We may try to make a trip to the city before the semester starts, I expect to we’ll shovel some snow, I know we’ll watch some basketball, and I know we’ll have an area young professionals get together.
