My friend Jamie has the best podcast and at the end she always asks her guests:
WHAT ARE THREE THINGS YOU ARE LOVING RIGHT NOW?
When I did her show, my favorites were:
I still love the album, but my music choice changes with the season and Zac Brown feels much more like summer. I’ve moved on to this album which I listen to on repeat daily and this weekend I caved and started listening to Christmas music.
The exercise videos are good for sure and doing them made a big, big difference in my muscle tone. Only problem: it’s hard to keep up the motivation at home. Our family just joined the local YMCA and I’ve been going to Barre class a few times per week. I’M IN LOVE. I knew I would love barre and now having a close-by gym where I’m committing actual dollars and the class is so fun and hard and perfect, all I want to do is go to class. It’s so good for me to have something I love to do that is good for my mind and body. Find your fitness thing and go for it (that’s my bossy advice for the day. Ashley would say the same.).
As for the life-saving dinner service, yep, still saving our lives.
Since I’m as fickle as the wind and always have a new favorite, I thought I’d share the current three things I’m into right now (in addition to the top items and subject to change at any moment).
No. 1 PAINTED NAILS
Since giving up lash extensions, I’ve transferred my high-maintenance beauty tendencies to my nails.
Now, by high-maintenance what I really mean is that I might go get a professional shellac manicure once per month and 10 days later when the polish starts to lift, I peel it all off and cover up my damaged nails with at-home polish. I’m particularly in to soft pinky/white nails that make my hands feel pretty and just bought this Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish in Creme de la Creme (as seen in the photo). It claims to last like gel without needing the light to harden it. I’m super hard on my nails and nothing lasts as long as they claim on me. This polish stays looking good for about 4-5 days (which for me is 3 days longer than normal polish!).
NO. 2 EGGNOG LATTES
Nothing new for me, but every year around this time I’m delighted by the lovely seasonal milk product that is eggnog. I actually prefer a homemade eggnog latte to one at the coffee shop because I only like a splash of eggnog (otherwise it gets a little too sweet for me). This is how I make them. You should come over and I’ll make you one. Yum.
No. 3 A NEW SHOW
Ryan and I started a new show that is not new at all, but it is new to us. It’s called Suits. We’ve made it through season one and are moving nicely along season two. We loved the now-canceled show The Newsroom and when my friend Jen told me that Suits is like Newsroom in the quick, witty writing (only funnier) and that the character Donna reminded her of me (I’ll take it!), we were sold. We watch for free and in multiple-episode doses through Amazon Prime, but I think you can get it on Netflix too.
So those are the three things I’m loving right now.
