What I’m Into (December 2015)

What’s Been Happening

Ohh ya know… I can’t fake it anymore. Guess what? We made a little announcement on Facebook a few days before Christmas… Merry Christmas from our family of THREE! EEEEE!

I’m due in May [and can hardly believe I’ve kept it a secret online all this time, hence all the vague “it’s been a busy month” references this fall] and we just found out that the baby is a BOY!

In the midst of this excitement, we had a great Christmas with both our families and have had a nice nearly two weeks’ off from before Christmas to January 4th. So relaxing. After Christmas, I did some baby shopping/browsing… so fun! 🙂 I even found an ergobaby carrier for 50% off at Target. You better believe I snatched that up! I also did a lot of reading to meet my yearly reading goal [see below] but I realize that’s not nearly as exciting for most people. Hehehe!

We also ran a 5k in downtown Nashville… there was even hot chocolate after the race! 🙂

What I’m Reading

In December, I read/listened to 10 books–just enough to meet my goal of reading 120 books for the year! You can, as always, find my reviews on Goodreads. 🙂

What I'm Into (December 2015) -

My favorite book was In The Woods–I think I’m going to like that series! The Distant Hours by Kate Morton was also good, but slow. A great audiobook was The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher, about a murder in 1860 England. Kinda creepy at times though, so you may not want to listen late at night. 🙂

Some great articles I’ve read online this month include:


What I’ve Been Cooking

This year, we didn’t make tons of Christmas cookies. I made these awesome No-Bake Peanut Butter Marshmallow Bars, Sugar Cookies, and Cranberry Cookies. Other than that, I don’t think I cooked very much… lots of Christmas events and such. I plan to cook a lot more in January! 🙂

What’s on the Blog

My most new popular recipe in December was Cheesy Southwest Farro. This will be on our menu again soon!

Cheesy Southwest Farro: a healthy, delicious dish good any time of the day! Plus you can make it in less than 30 minutes, so it's perfect for busy schedules. :)

Most popular recipes from the archive included: Cinnamon Sugar Apple Cake, Sausage, Apple, and Egg Casserole, and Buffalo Pretzels.

What were you into in December?

Linking up with Leigh Kramer to share what I’ve been into lately.
