Reading // I’m currently reading Make it Happen by Lara Casey – a good motivational book for the start of the new year. I’m also still working on Theology for Beginners…it’s really an easy read and could be quick if I wanted it to be. But there’s a lot of truths that I want to sink in so I’m taking my time with it. Dante’s Inferno is also taking a while, but mainly cause there’s only so much discussion of Hell I can take in a sitting, ya know?

Cooking // Back to the Whole 30. I had been overindulging somewhat in all of Danielle Walker’s delicious grain-free treats for far too long. This time around, though, I’m trying to make my Whole 30 more economical, less all-meat-all-the-time (which can be tough with their guidelines), and use more of my blender. Like tonight I made sweet potato hash, which was delicious.

Baking // Nothing as of today! For 30 days!

Watching // Kevin and I got our fill of a few Christmas favorites over the past few weeks. My contributions were Love Actually and The Holiday – I will never tire of these two films and the joy they bring me. We also watched Home Alone and It’s a Wonderful Life – classics! As of right now, I’ve been on a bit of a Friends binge…this was by far my favorite show for so long (it still might be) – it’s just so familiar. I can put it on in the background and laugh while doing more serious things.

Listening // The Holiday Pandora station is a GOOD one. We’ve been enjoying it a bunch. But I’m also a 21st century woman and I am still not over Adele and her new music.

Wanting // These Gap sweater leggings! We’ve hit a real cold spell here in Duluth – the past few days have been in the negatives and I swear something is off with our heating (or it’s in my head). My favorite lounge pants are dirty and so I’ve been wearing double leggings…and my winter coat. IT. IS. COLD. Which means I’ve been thinking about sweater leggings.

Making // I’ve been trying out hand lettering for a bit now. I really like it! Just because I like it, though, doesn’t mean I’m good at it, sadly. I tell myself if I work on it enough (which I don’t) then I’ll get better.

Traveling // Besides our recent quick trip to PA, there is nothing on the books until May. So I’ll probably need to change that. Maybe another trip to the twin cities at least? There’s just not as many places exciting places accessible via car then there are in the northeast. Unless you count my new favorite local coffee shop, Pelican Coffee. I go there at least once a week…daring, I know.

May your Tuesday be a bit less boring than mine 🙂
