I Am Currently…..

Wearing

This pullover.

It’s all over the internet and goes on sale occasionally, sells out frequently and is restocked almost as frequently.  If they don’t have it in your size or color, wait.  They will.  The sell-outs usually line up with when it goes on sale (best price I’ve seen is 50% off).  My patience paid off, so yours should too.

It is the warmest and most comfortable thing I’ve worn in a long time.  I’ve started wearing it as part of a “normal” outfit, but I also put it on in the evenings to warm up before I go to bed.  It’s like pre-pajamas.

Oh Crap! Potty Training

Exciting, right?  Real life, my friend.  Real.Life.

Our five year-old essentially potty trained herself, so not only do I have no clue how to potty train, I also have astronomically unrealistic expectations.  A friend recommended it to me because they were in a similar situation and she found it to be really helpful.

I’m so hoping that that’s the case for us as well.  

Eating

Protein & Veggie Loaded Black Bean Avocado Salad :: maximizingdaysblog.com

This black bean and avocado salad.

It’s a shameless plug, but it’s the truth. 

We’ve had a number of appetizer potluck Christmas parties recently, and I brought this salad to a few of them so that I could give myself at least one healthy option.

Before this, it had been a few months since I’d made this salad, and I forgot how good it is.  

Watching

Mad About You.

Yep.  The sitcom from twenty years ago.  I watched it when it was on originally, and it is even more funny to me now.  

I love to have a “background show” – a TV show that can play in the background while I’m doing things that require little thought.  A background show has to be one that I’ve seen before so that when I miss parts, I’m not lost.

This show is SO FUNNY.  If you never watched, start now.  See why Helen Hunt won, like, 16 Emmy awards.

Loving

Currently Loving - Yeti 14 oz. Tumbler :: maximzingdaysblog.com

The Yeti rambler mug.

My daughter, trying her hardest to be helpful with preparations for Thanksgiving dinner offered to dry dishes.  Super sweet, but ended with her dropping my ceramic to-go mug on the floor and it shattering in pieces all over the floor.  (No one was harmed).

My husband received a Yeti tumbler for his birthday last year and I’ve used it a couple times.  It almost does too good of a job keeping drinks warm.  I tried to drink my tea AN HOUR after brewing it and it still burnt my mouth.

This mug is great because it is transportable but also works great at home when you don’t have to go anywhere.  I can’t tell you how long it keeps my coffee hot because I always finish it while it’s still hot.  But that’s usually an hour after brewing it.

Thinking

That we are reaping the benefits of our efforts to simplify the holidays.  

I am honestly enjoying all of the festivities (of which there haven’t been an overwhelming amount) and find myself excitedly anticipating Christmas instead of dreading that there isn’t enough time to get everything done.

This has been a real lesson learned.
