Currently December 2016


Today I’m joining Anne and Kellie for the monthly Currently linkup.  This month I’m currently:


Doing: a 25 Books of Christmas feature on my blog!  From December 1 through December 25 I am posting a review of a Christmas book.  So we are reading lots of Christmas books and I’ve been busy writing review posts for them.  It’s been a lot more work than I had anticipated, but I love the holiday season and love reading.  What better way to combine the two?!

Enjoying: I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I joined a gym back in September for my birthday and I am enjoying going!  I’ve always thought I was anti-gym.  However, I’ve been going to classes including barre, zumba, yoga and occasionally spinning, several times a week.

Cookies 2015

Cooking:  This weekend I will be making homemade pizza and cookies for our Supper Club’s annual cookie exchange.  Instead of going out to eat, which we usually do, we’re having all the kids come to this month’s get together and also doing our annual homemade pizza theme.  I still have to figure out what kind of pizza and cookies I’ll be making!  Last year I made Melt-In-Your-Mouth Eggnog Cookie and my husband made Bourbon Balls.  Stay tuned to see what this year’s cookies will be!

Wrapping:  So, I’ve currently wrapped not a single thing.  However, I’ve finally started to do some online shopping and the packages have just started arriving.  I will hopefully have done more shopping and can start wrapping presents this weekend!

Playing: I’ve been playing lots of podcasts while I clean and do laundry, run errands, etc.  I’m planning an upcoming post on what I’ve been listening to lately!




  1. Going to classes is the only way I actually end up working out! Which hasn’t happened lately, but having that motivation made me get over my anti-gym mentality too.

  2. I love that you’re reading/reviewing Christmas books through December. Your kids are probably in 7th heaven with all the good books! Oddly, I’m really struggling to remember a lot of kids’ Christmas books from when I was little beyond the traditional, like Frosty. But I’m sure I read whatever I could get my hands on! My workouts have been a bit non-existent lately. I go in spurts, good for a period of time, then off the wagon. Zumba is supposed to be a great workout and I’d like to try it sometime. Those Bourbon Balls look especially good. Can’t wait to see what kind of pizza and cookies you make this year!

  3. Definitely writing down some of your Christmas book ideas for next year – we did a book advent calendar, which we’re loving, but I’m going to need some ideas for checking out of the library next year, as I’m sure my little guy will like to do this again! Also looking forward to hearing about your podcast listening – I’m always looking for new ideas there too!
