thursday things


Hello and welcome to the first THURSDAY THINGS of 2013!!!

December was a blur of Ikea trips, birthdays, holidays, shopping, baking, hosting… and then I blinked and it was January.  And it was time to go back to work.  I begged my boss not to make me come back, but that’s all part of being a grown up I guess.


It’s been hard to crawl out of the holiday vortex and get back on schedule, back to work, back to blogging, back to life…

I’m slowly crawling out of the vortex, like really slowly, but I’m getting back on track.  I’ve got to plan out my January posts and then I think it’ll all kick back into gear.  Something like that.

Christmas was amazing.

I got these great books:


This awesome blender:


Oh, and those adorable slippers too.

I also received this adorable apron to wear while using the books, or the blender, or both!


Isn’t it the cutest thing you’ve ever seen!? SO MANY OWLS!!!

I used the blender yesterday to make cashew milk.  Intrigued?  You should be.  More on that later.

Next month is going to be my 2 year “Blogiversary”… I can’t believe it will have been TWO YEARS!  I never would have guessed that I’d last that long.  I’m going to have something exciting planned for that, too.  (Wee Eats very first giveaway, perhaps?)

The Boyfriend and I made mozzarella while we were on vacation.  Like together.  As a team.  And nobody died.  Amazing, right?


It was actually pretty good, especially considering that neither of us had any idea what we were doing.

Hope everyone had a great holiday and a happy new year!  I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!

I’m at least medium excited for 2013 TV…

Justified starts again next week.  Get me my weekly dose of Timothy Olyphant.  I think I’ve been seriously deficient lately.  Just sayin.

OOH and then we have the second season of Girls coming up, hopefully The Following is pretty good, and then I’ll try not to kill myself when the series finale of 30 Rock airs.

I’m sure I can survive on reruns, right?  Right??

  1. I am delighted to find that the first post in my google reader is the first Thursday Things of 2013. I’m also seriously, seriously wanting that apron. I’d say i want those slippers too, but i actually HAVE those slippers (in navy, with grey puffball), and they are wonderful.
    You and me? we’re talking cookbooks this year. Because now we basically have duplicate at-home libraries and i’ve been so incredibly holiday/post-holiday zoned out that i haven’t even been able to spend time with my books yet! Are you in love with the Nigella one yet? Oh, i hope so. And the Bouchon one; beauty between two covers. I’m so excited for 2013! Now if I could only get my act together… 🙂

    • OF COURSE you have the same slippers as I do! haha, how funny!

      I’m LOVING the new cookbooks. And now I’m more excited about Bouchon because I can’t wait to see what you make out of it! 🙂

  2. I LOVE THAT APRON. And cookbooks. And Thursday Things. I gave 2.0 Apple TV for Christmas, so we’re catching up on a whole bunch of movies and shows that we’ve only been HEARING about for the past 5 years… so I guess we’ll be cool in 2013.

    • Haha, so you’ll be living in TV 2008? That’s actually kind of amazing. My two cents (if you’re into drama) is to check out Damages. I started watching it one day at the gym and got totally sucked in!
