Is it just me, or does it really not feel like a Thursday today? Mid-week holidays always through me off….(and the fact that I spent yesterday painfully hungover is probably adding to it too, because that doesn’t typically happen on a Wednesday). But, I’m cool with the fact that it’s almost the weekend.
Also cool – I’ll be heading up to Burlington today to meet up with some awesome ladies for dinner at Lettuce Love Cafe (formerly Kindfood). I went here with Chelsea over the summer to see if it lived up to her praise, and…yes. yes it does. I’m excited to be going back!
But, a quick look at some of my favourites in December, both in my life and on the blog.
In December, I was…
Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch.
I got this book about 5-6 years ago, and I always try to reread it at this time of year. We all know that diets are thrown at us left right and center post-holidays, so I use this book as a reminder to just avoid all that nonsense. Boo diets!
After watching Joss Whedon’s Firefly a few months ago, Eric and I both decided to give this old series a try. We got through the first season, and we really liked it! It’s a little slow the first couple of episodes, but around mid-season, it really picks up. I’ve heard that season 2 is better than the first, so I’m excited to get started on that.
I’ve actually really been liking Lorde’s album, Pure Heroine. Yes, I’m horribly behind on popular music, but I love it when I’m in the mood for something mellow.
Christmas cookies. Nutella.
Hot chocolate. Definitely becoming my warm beverage of choice!
December Blog Recipes:
- Brussels Sprouts with Sweet Potato and Bacon. How can you go wrong with that combo?

Have a good one!
