Hey! What's doing on with you?
Here's what's going on with me...

Current Book:  Well, this book has been sitting on my bedside table for awhile now. My dad let me borrow it and I am going to read it... just as soon as I stop messing around on my phone before bed and start reading like I used to do before I had a phone!



Current Podcast: So That Happened. It's a very informative podcast about all the shit that is going on the state of American politics.

Current Guilty Pleasure: I'm not feeling guilty about any of my pleasures!

Gift I am most excited to give: I am so excited to give my nieces and nephews their gifts! I have two nephews on Paul's side (Eden and Isaiah) and one on my side (Clark). I have one niece on Paul's side (Violet) and two on my side (Ellie and Clementine). Having nieces and nephews is THE BEST.

Current Need: During my last currently post, I shared that I needed an appetite. Well friends, I no longer need one. I completely made up the calories I lost during the time I didn't have an appetite and then some. My hearty appetite is back, and I am glad, because I love eating!

Current Triumph: I actually picked out AND COPIED all of the music my chorus will be singing this spring. Now, if only my January lesson plans were done...



Current Wish List: Do they make alpaca blankets? Because I am in love with my alpaca socks. When I put them on after a long day at work, I feel like I am walking on marshmallows!



Current Bane of My Existence: The anger I am feeling about the state of our country. First I was scared and sad. Now I am legit PISSED OFF. More of that in a post coming later...

Current Most Annoying Celebrity: Candace Cameron Bure always pisses me off with her blissful ignorance. I'm so glad she's leaving The View.

Current Indulgence: EGG NOG!





Current TV Show: Survivor is over, but I think Bates Motel starts soon!


Current Food: Little Debbie Chocolate Christmas Trees!



Current Drink: I have been all over the place with my drink choices lately. I'm drinking anything from cab sav to margaritas. Yes, margaritas in December! Why not?

Current Thing I Am Thankful For: 10 days off for Christmas break! I hope Paul and I find the energy to do something fun.


Current Excitement: Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with our families!
Tell me something "current" about you!

  1. I had to laugh at your dislike of Candace Cameron Bure. I have not watched her on the view but the other night she must have been on a Hallmark movie or something because Scott said he always thought she reminded him of me. Now I don't know if that was a compliment or not. I don't know what her "views" are but it seems like she is a good person.

    I'm getting excited to give gifts too and definitely excited for 10 days off!

    1. Well she is definitely pretty so if he is comparing you to her in that way, I would take it as a compliment! My guess is that is what he meant, because I doubt Scott watches The View... or maybe he does??? Hahaha! She is just very closed minded and it seems like from watching her on The View that is is hard for her to open her mind. Not that I want her to CHANGE her mind or her beliefs, because I know we all have our core beliefs that are pretty strong, but I think she lacks compassion and perspective. I don't think she is malicious in any way, but just blissfully unaware- which I find so annoying, hence, most annoying celebrity. She will always be at the top of my list. Wow it seems like I could have written a blog post just on her!

      10 days off... just reading that phrase makes me so happy! Hang in there these last couple days!

  2. Hooray for Christmas break!

    Candace Cameron Burre... she is a good actress and I respect her for that, but yeah, I feel like she's super conservative. I'll admit I like her more than her brother because he is way more of a has been and he seems much more extreme (I also feel like she's a better actress than he is an actor).

    Those alpaca socks look so wonderful. I need some warmer, cozy socks for the season! I feel like running a lot sort of made my appetite go away when I was training hard, when I got hurt I ate about the same amount of food and didn't gain weight. But now that I'm rebuilding my mileage my appetite is back with a vengeance...

    1. I don't mind that she is conservative but she is soooo unaware. Like when they talk about race on The View, she just cannot wrap her mind around the fact that someone who is NOT white has a different experience in this country than someone who is white. That's just one example. And I'm sure it doesn't help at all that I can't relate to her at ALL on pretty much ANYTHING. Although there are other conservative commentators on The View who I like. I thought Nicole Wallace was AWESOME. I didn't agree with her on everything, but she could have an intelligent conversation, which is ultimately what I can respect.

      I think our bodies are machines and even if you weren't running as much, it was probably just used to metabolizing a lot of food. I had some really disordered eating and body image issues for a long time and having a rest day just freaked me out so bad because I thought I would gain weight if I didn't workout for a day. Obviously now I know it doesn't work like that! I know there is a difference between one rest day and a longer period of time of less activity, but still I think when you train hard your body is pretty conditioned!

      Glad your appetite is back, though! I don't know about you, but I LOVE to eat, so I get sad when I don't have an appetite.

  3. I've been done with The View for a long time. Why do these ill-informed women get to share their opinions on TV?

  4. Those socks aren't itchy? They look itchy. I grew up watching Pavel Bure on the Vancouver Canucks! I had a poster of him on my wall.

  6. I've been having a lot of margaritas this month! Roger makes this great margaritas and I just find myself craving them!

    I dont' want the View, bc I'm at work at the time it happens... but I have read that people find Candace Cameron annoying... tell me more about it!!

    I'm excited for my niece and my son to open their gifts too!! My niece is learning how to talk, and she calls everything she loves either Bebe, or Mama. Last night she accidentally saw her gift and started laughing and screaming "Bebe! bebe! aww!! Bebe!!" into the phone. It was so awesome!

  7. I've been so pissed off too. Everything that happened after the electin has got me so riled up, I might need a blood pressure medicine soon.

    Oh, and I love eggnog and warm fuzzy socks. Just for the record :) And merry Christmas.

    1. It is infuriating. :( It's good to hear others are infuriated as well, because otherwise I feel like I am in the twilight zone.

      Merry, Merry!!!

  8. Mm, eggnog! YES! I love it so much.

    I love Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We read it in high school for an AP Composition class and it was the first non-fiction book I ever enjoyed!

    1. Maybe if I had read it in HS instead of now I would have done better on my SATS. :)

  9. I have never had egg nog! Something about a drink that tastes like eggs sounds so weird to me. (Does it taste like eggs?) I should probably just try it though. I mean I'm 30 now, I need to live a little!

    Currently I am excited about possibly having Friday off of work! Let's get this party started! haha

    1. It does NOT taste like eggs but it is a very strong taste. I think you should try it!

      Ooh I hope you get Friday off! We will be going a full day. There is no hope for an early release anymore.

  10. That's so crazy you posted that picture of Alpaca socks. I just received the same pair from a friend this week. They are divine! I am posting about them in a couple of days!
