I Just Blogged to Say I Love You (Vol. 10)

I'm so embarrassed that I haven't posted one of these since SEPTEMBER!!!  Ack!  Will you forgive me if I tell you that I was working on a little (big) project for you?  Yes?  Good.

OK....lots of things to love.

i just blogged to say i love you (vol. 10)
1. Downton Abbey returns.  The two-hour premiere wasn't long enough for me.  I'm thinking, 5 hours next season?  Last week, I took this "which Downton Abbey character are you" quiz.  I'm Tom Branson.  Go figure.

2. Obsession: these.  As in, I make them and eat them ALL.  At once. 

3. Sticking with savory food for a minute, these "skinny" enchiladas were a hit at dinner last night.  I was a little nervous....neither of my boys are big butternut squash lovers, but they devoured these.  Skinny and super filling!

4. Books!  Ah! So many good ones.  These have been my favorites:  The Husband's Secret, Where'd You Go, Bernadette?, and What Alice Forgot.  All three were books that I couldn't wait to dive back into every night.  The first and third on the list are by the same author.  (Do you get on author kicks like I do?  I find one book I like, then have to read everything else by the same author.)

5. This coconut foot cream is the bomb dot com.  (I don't think people say that anymore.  *I* don't say that...but I typed it.  I'm not sure what that means.)  Anyway...I had a patch of dry skin on my foot that would not go away.  Pedicures, lotions, body oils...nothing worked.  Until this.  And it smells heavenly.  (I found mine at the grocery store.)  It makes me really uncomfortable talking about feet in the same space as baking.  Let's pretend this never happened.

6. Rose cookies by Callye.  Just beautiful. 

7. Stitch Fix: have you guys tried it, yet?  I've mentioned StitchFix before...seeing that box on my front step makes for the BEST mail day ever!!!  My last three shipments have been spot on...my stylist (how fancy does that sound?) has just knocked it out of the park lately.  I'll spare you a fashion show, but if you've ever had an inkling to try their styling service, do it!!!

8. I need this deliciousness in my life.  Hey, I just ate skinny enchiladas (see #3).  My life is about balance, people.

9. Well, I have secured my spot in the Crazy Cat Lady Club.  Our kitty, Spike, now has his own Instagram account: @maythefluffbewithyou  Kiddo and I are helping him with the typing.

Happy Friday, guys!  What have you been loving lately?

  1. I've been loving getting back into blogging! I fell off the wagon a bit for a month or so, but now that I'm back I realize how much I missed writing and this wonderful community.

    On a siller note - Breaking Bad all the way. I have not been able to stop watching it!

  2. I made your butternut squash and black bean enchiladas earlier this week and absolutely LOVE them. Easy, filling dinner and reheated lunch. You're the best for blogging this recipe!

    Check out my post and modified recipe here: http://www.coffeewithkate.com/2014/01/05/butternut-squash-and-black-bean-enchiladas/

  3. I just got my first "fix" from StitchFix yesterday! Agreed -- best mail day, ever. I am hoping that my stylist and my fancy, stylist-having self will soon be operating with one mind, and I will keep every item in every box they ever send me. (I am sure my husband will be overjoyed!)

  4. I love seeing Spike's adventures on Instagram, he is SO cute!

  5. What Alice Forgot..... Oh so amazing! Also, homemade banana nut bread with some chocolate chips thrown in for good measure :-)

  6. I LOVED "Where'd You Go, Bernadette?"! It captures all of Seattle's weirdness perfectly.
    Also, it's awesome to see I am not the only one who is too obsessed with Downton Abbey :)

  7. Your cat is so fluffy! Adorable :)

    It is good to secure your spot in the crazy cat lady group. You don't want all of the spots to be taken!

  10. Downton Abbey + SPIKEY = My faves! xoxoxo

  11. LOVED The Husband's Secret and LOVE Downton Abbey. The last episode was only an hour. Boo!

  12. Spike is about my IG fave. My kitties need cool lessons from him. Be sure to tell him that!
