Currently… (December 2017)

Happy Monday everyone!

I’m currently waking up in New Orleans.  I’m spending a half day here as part of the Blogger Shuffle and then heading home later today.  I’ve been having so much fun and you can follow along via Instagram Stories.

I’m going to share my New Orleans highlights here next week but in the meantime I thought I’d share some of the tidbits going on behind the scenes in my life.   Here we go….

Currently I’m…


I am in between books but I just got a recommendation from a friend… Sunbaked by Junie Coffey.  I’ve been having severe wanderlust over the Bahamas and warm ocean water lately so hopefully this book will do the trick.


Listening, watching and adoring this commercial.  The former ballerina in me has literally watched this a dozen times and held my breath each time.  This is a pretty darn effective commercial because I didn’t even know these headphones existed and now I want them so I can dance in the streets like that.  🙂


The Hubs and I just finished Stranger Things and I’ve got to say guys I don’t get it.  I generally don’t like scary things but the Hubs really wanted to watch it so we gave it a try.  I don’t think it scared me that much because it felt so far fetched.  It was ok… but I didn’t like it as much as the rest of the world did.  I did think the kids in it were adorable though and loved all the references to the early 80’s.


My ugg boots?  Ever since it got actually cold in Asheville I’ve felt like I’ve been freezing so I’ve been wearing them way too much.  Are they even in style anymore?  I guess I don’t care!  I feel like I’m going to struggle this winter because I’ve been cold ever since it first got below 60 degrees.


ALL the seafood.



A New Orleans Hurricane.  I’m not a huge drinker, but it is on my New Orleans bucket list!


Between Thanksgiving at the beach, Christmas parties and my New Orleans trip I feel like it’s been one foodie indulgence lately.  It’s been a blast and I’ve embraced every minute of it without guilt, but I’m also craving more kale in my life.  So when I get back I’ll be making more of these…

I’m doing two more ALDI tv segments this week!  One live in Charlotte Thursday and another one on Friday in Asheville that is getting taped to air later this month.  For those of you who are local it will be on at the end of the noon news on December 19th.

After that I’m looking forward to a calmer rest of December with cozy night and Christmas movies in my future.


I’m praying for a peaceful, relaxing and happy December for myself and all of you!

Thank you so much for reading today and for your kind comments. 

I’m linking up with Marvelous Monday & Thinking Out Loud Thursday.

Your turn!

    I liked Stranger things for the 80s too but I wasn’t a huge fan like others are. That commercial is seriously the best. I never watch commercials but it had my full attention from beginning to end.
    I hope you have a lovely December!

    I don’t own a pair of UGG boots, but they do look like they would warm and crazy. Like you said if you like them, who cares what people think. Can’t wait to see where you went to eat in New Orleans. So much great food in that city!

    I really miss Uggs boots. Ever since I had plantar Faciitis I need more support in my shoes. Have fun in New Orleans

    Don’t forget to take time to look up to Him. The one who this season is for, the one who died for our sins so we could live eternally in Heaven. As much fun and as many experiences this life has to offer here on Earth, there is also pain, agony and a sinful nature. We have perfection to look forward to if we know the babe born in a manger. I hope everyone who reads this blog will take the time to enjoy a church service, caroling, time with family, etc. Before you know it this “season” will be over and we will tend to once again get lost in the shuffle of life. Look up my friends…look up.

    Hope you are having a wonderful time in New Orleans, it is such a cool city. I feel in need of a little break from indulgent foods myself and am planning to refocus on fruits and veggies this week.
