Current Books: I started A Farewell to Mars with my coffee in the mornings. I am almost finished reading We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. WOW! For a while, I have read books like my son plays with toys... secretly taking them apart in my brain and trying to figure out how they work. It's been a while since I have totally relaxed so far into a book, I forget it is a book and I write books and I need to know how this book works. We Were Liars is a "just one more chapter" kind of book.
Current Playlist: I've been listening to "Less Like Scars" by Sara Groves on repeat.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Yesterday, I bought donuts. For myself. I didn't share.
Current Colors: I've liked mustard yellow lately, and that's not a color I normally like. It's also not a color I wear. It doesn't look good on my skin tone. But I like it lately, nonetheless.
Current Food: Corey and I tried a new place called Amsterdam's. Though the name doesn't show it, they serve a few middle eastern dishes, and I got a gyro. They also have shawarma and a hummus plate. It was delicious and I will definitely go back. A lot.
Current Drink: I had a yummy sparkling berry lemonade at Amsterdam's. I don't recall the brand. It was a French import.
Current Favorite Favorite: Not stressing about gifts this Advent. I made a list and I have stuck to that list.
Current Wishlist: A bunch of books, some Out of Print Clothing shirts, a journaling Bible, a new bag for my Macbook...
Current Needs: Nothing huge. I'm feeling very content and grateful.
Current Triumphs: I just bought my husband's Christmas gift. It was expensive. I paid for it with Jamberry money I earned. :) We've never been a "your money" and "my money" kind of couple, but usually he is the only one earning any money. This year, it was fun to shop for him without him even knowing.
Current Bane-of-my-Existence: Hormones. Mine and those belonging to the tweens living in my house.
Current Mood: Content.
Current Outfit: Jeans, spike-toed boots, blue shirt, purple Under Armor jacket
Current #1 Blessing: My husband
