Things I’m Loving

Christmas lights.
So relaxing and cozy! Right when I walk in the door, I turn on the Christmas lights on the tree. Those lights make me so happy.

I know, how cliche. Everyone seems to be doing crossfit, it’s like the thing to do. But hear me out. I really dislike exercising. The gym bores me to tears, I cannot stand running, and I’ve tried at home DVD’s. I was doing Turbofire for a good 6 months and really enjoyed it but after awhile the DVD’s started getting repetitive and I was getting bored (see a theme here?). Anyways, a few weeks ago I saw a deal on Living Social for 5 beginner classes of crossfit for $30. So I thought why not? Plus, the crossfit gym is literally 5 blocks up from when I live. And? Well I loved it of course. Every one was super friendly, the trainers were awesome and the workout was challenging. The only downside for me is the cost but I think it’s completely worth it. I’ve been going 4x a week and have never been this sore in my life. Love it.

American Horror Story.
If you have never seen this show you need to! Season 2 has been fantastic. You don’t even need to see season 1 to understand so start season 2! It’s crazy, weird, scary and so twisted. I look forward to it every week.

Cute Overload.

I’m a huge animal lover so I could look at this site every day. You can even submit your own pet pics (I may have done it once or twice) Check it out!


My new site!
I’m having my site totally redesigned. It will be much easier to navigate and I’ll be able to really personalize my blog. I’m so excited! Should be up and running by the new year.  If you “follow” me on WordPress I will lose you so make sure you subscribe by email! Baking, blogging, and photography would be like my total dream job. 🙂

Overnight Oats.
I’m back into them again. I was super into Paleo pancakes but lately overnight oats are winning. It’s easier to grab in the morning for work since I have to be there by 6:30 a.m.! My recipe: 1/4 cup oats, 1/2 scoop protein powder, 1/2 tsp chia seeds, 1 Tbs sunflower butter, almond milk, cinnamon and stevia. Put in the fridge over night and enjoy.

This site.
I just discovered this site. If you need a laugh when you’re at work then this is perfect.

On an end note, this pretty much sums me up:
