currently

Ok more like the last few days this is what I have been up to.


making made // these banana nut muffins (minus the nuts) from the Skinny Taste Cookbook I recently ordered. 



drinking // Coffee. Coffee and more coffee. 


reading // What To Eat. It is fascinating and at the same time makes me not want to buy produce from the grocery store anymore. 




wanting // more sleep. more free time. and to be over this cold already. My sniffles need to check themselves at the door. 



watching // Ok, ok... I confess, I have been watching a lot of Gilmore Girls lately. For the record - Dean is the worst. 



listening // to this band. You Me & Apollo. They are legit. 






eating // Banana Nut Muffins. Duh.



enjoying enjoyed // My weekend with my family. My sister's birthday was on Saturday and I got to spend a lot of time with them. I might have also fallen asleep on them too - but I blame the cold for that and at least I was still in the room with them while I napped? 



loving // that holidays are in full swing. I may or may not have put up some twinkle lights yesterday and burned one too many spruce scented candles. Which by the way, who knew there was such a thing as burning too many scented candles at once? Word to the wise - don't over do the number of candles you burn at one time. You will get a headache. 



feeling // stuffy. Really though, this cold. I am going to keep complaining about it because I can. Also, I am starting to feel strong, too. I have been slowing working on my heavy lifting. Well I wouldn't call it heavy yet, but I am making progress on the bigger lifts like back squats and overhead squats, and snatches, and cleans, etc. It is hard, but fun! 



laughing // at the price of wedding details. It is ridiculous and laughable. Probably should have gotten married at a courthouse.... oh well! I suppose it will be worth it? ;) I kind of like Brad or something. 



noticing // that I never blog any more. It just isn't a priority in my life. I miss it, but I also can't commit either. 



bookmarking // your blogs I should be reading; wedding ideas I think are pretty -but probably can't afford; foods I want to make and bake from my new cookbook; workout ideas for myself and my clients; you know the usual.... 



So yeah, that is what my life looks like currently. What have you guys been up to?!

When my cousin was getting married last summer, she asked me to guess how much JUST the invitations cost. Not even including the postage. When I guessed, and she told me to add a zero onto it- I was appalled. How does anyone afford to get married and also live at the same time??

i spent like 30 dollars on avon reindeer decor yesterday. kill me.

A lot of my wedding is now a blur, but I very vividly remember having multiple near-mental breakdowns over the cost of stupid things like invitations and centerpieces. I ended up making 90% of everything myself. Time consuming? Hell yes, but so worth not spending a bajillion dollars for a day that nobody will really remember anyway.

Weddings are ridiculously expensive! What to eat sounds interesting....

Hope you feel better!

kailyn marie said...

make me all the foods.

p.s. at least your save the dates design isn't expensive ;)

JumpingJE said...

You can come over to my house and we can decorate / drink spiced cider / cozy up / listen to Christmas music / lift heavy things / bake / lounge. Plan?

Some of the costs for our wedding REALLY surprised me - especially photography! Derek knew a girl from high school who recently (as in less than a year ago) went to a full-time photographer (she was doing it part time for about two years before) and we wanted to use her, but when we found out her prices were THREE TIMES what we budgeted for photography, we definitely went a different route! It's crazy how expensive weddings can be - then there's the little things you don't think of like renting chaffing dishes or buying a guest book.

I am having a hard time making my blog a priority too! those muffins look great and you inspired me to look for more healthy recipes.

Jenn said...

Hope you start feeling better soon!! Being sick is the worst, especially when you're trying to spend time with your family. Enjoy those muffins!! :)
Blog when you can...we'll all be here when you swing back in again!

Weddings are ridiculous! I did mine for 10k, if you need any help let me know!

Kristen said...

YES to banana nut muffins without the nuts... I always pick that shit out.

Kenzie Smith said...

Definitely no nuts in my banana muffins! I love when my mom makes just the muffin tops -- I could eat that all day every day. Sounds like you have been busy but having fun! I love that you are already decorating.. I am trying to decide on whether or not I should start yet. Also, great for you on lifting heavy!! We just got one of those door frame pull up bars and I so cannot do a pull up. Ugh. I need the exercise.

P!nky said...

Wedding prices are quite ridiculous, but it really is all worth it! You're going to have the best day, I know it!

hope you are feeling better! So awesome you are lifting heavy :)!

Ashley @ ladyacray.blogspot.com said...

I've been eying that cookbook! It looks wonderful and I love trying new recipes. Glad you're liking it!

Michelle said...

I can't tell you how many meltdowns I had over wedding expenses. It's EXTORTION. I splurged on photography and my dress and cut corners everywhere else. Worth it.

-Heather- said...

Banana nut muffins without nuts is my love language! I like nuts, but not in my breakfast or desserts! Ew.

Kasey Lynne said...

I will be adding that cookbook to my christmas list. i loveee her recipes, so i know i would get so much use out of it.

and i think if i read that book, i probably would stop eating altogether. for reals.
