Mini life update

Here is proof that I can post something unrelated to food! Yay!

So what have we been up to lately?

Well last night, Matt and I may or may not have purchased Christmas decorations from Hobby Lobby. What? They were 50% off! Hard to pass up on that when we're having to start our own little collection of holiday decorations. We got one of those little 3 ft trees (perfect for the apartment!), some lights, a star, tree skirt, some cheapo ornaments, a pillow, and a shelf figurine thing. Pictures to come closer to Christmas :P

Source ; not our tree-- this is at the Grand Floridian at WDW, but  just to get you in the Christmas mood :)
The shameful part in all of this is that we umm... put the decorations up last night. Again, we couldn't resist. Our apartment is all nice and festive now. To celebrate further, I listened the Michael Buble's Christmas album on Spotify and drank hot tea while finding research articles for grad school. Basically, it's been a very relaxing morning :)

In other news... work is work and school is school. I can't believe how close it's getting to the end of the semester! In about a month, I'll be done! What stands in my way? One research paper, one lit review, and one test. That's it. [Oh, and the work for my prof, but that's it's own thing.] Of course they are all due the week immediately following Thanksgiving, which constrains the length of our holiday travel. 

Last night we made another amazing dessert (think warm apples coming out of the oven, seasoned with nutmeg and cinnamon, on top of vanilla ice cream) so I will definitely have to post that soon. And then you should make it. ASAP. Go buy some apples in preparation, k?

Woops, I mentioned food. Sorry about that. Anyway, I hope all of you have a great Thursday! Almost done with the week :)


  1. Ah I love Hobby Lobby! And decorations! I need to go there NOW! :)

    Have a great weekend! :)

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't resist Hobby Lobby's sales! I love our Christmas stuff too!
