loving lately.

orange is the new black. We watched the first few episodes on new years eve and finished binge-watching the entire first season and OMG I want to know what happens next! Does Piper really kill someone in prison? I'm guessing no, but I also want to know who she ends up with.



downton abby. So totally different from orange but I am happy to have Dame Maggie Smith (Lady Violet) back in my life. And I'll admit I cried when Lady Mary finally cried and immediately made h promise he won't die (bc that's totally normal, right?!)

And my newest guilty pleasure... cutthroat kitchen on the food network. It's similar to the network's other show, chopped (chefs prepare dishes that are judged) but cutthroat allows contestants to sabotage each other and alton brown is a super snarky host!

sooo basically I watch a lot of tv. 

AND I read. I am half way through The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri and I love it, Lahiri is one of my favorite authors so I was thrilled this is our January book club pick. 

AND I bake. I made my great-grandmother's date nut bread on my (cold) day off and it is SO tasty (h likes it too!) I'll post a recipe soon - promise!

What are you loving lately?

  4. I'm currently reading The Lowland (about 85% done) and I keep going back and forth with it. I'll love a part of it and then get so bored with the next bit. Overall it was a compelling story though.

  6. I've really been into sending snail mail lately. I think it's a nice way to reconnect on a personal note with my loved ones. I've been baking up a storm too, although I am trying to bake healthier options. And with my almost 10 month, I can't seem to put down my camera. She's so much more interactive now so I'm trying to capture every moment.
