Gimme Some Oven

Loving the new video app Vine. It’s like the 6-second-video version of Instagram. Come find me at GimmeSomeOven!

Listening to The Lone Bellow’s new album. Since it looks like The Civil Wars are not getting back together anytime soon (tragic!), this band is quickly becoming my new Americana favorite.

Saving up to get my DNA tested. Ever since I heard about 23andMe, I’ve been totally geeking out on their site and wanting to try it. I’m sure it’s not perfect, but I think it sounds like a pretty fascinating way to spend $99.

Praying Psalm 46. “Cease striving, and know that I am God.” (NASB)

Considering what that verse really means for a 3.

Watching Nashville. After the early season finale of Parenthood last week, I decided it was time to dive into a new drama. I was initially really skeptical about the concept, the music, the cast, well…pretty much everything. But I had a few friends say that it far exceeded their expectations, so I’m now three episodes in and loving it.

Planning a possible trip to Costa Rica to visit my old host family this spring or summer. Flights are cheap right now — trying to figure out if I can swing it! :)

Laughing at The Mindy Project. Favorite new show of the year, hands down.

Reading A Tree Grows In Brooklyn (for book club) and The Racketeer (because I unabashedly have read and loved every mystery John Grisham has published since I was a teenager). And of course, I’m loving reading both books on my new Kindle.

Eating soup, soup and more soup while it’s frrrrrigid outside. And I may have indulged in some Hot Tamales this week (an old favorite).

Drinking coconut water. I’m kind of obsessed. Now if only I could find it on sale more…

Accepting the fact that I will never be a cold weather girl. Ever.

Admitting that I spent 30 minutes this week reading all of Ali Fedotowsky’s Bachelor blog posts, including lots of behind the scenes production secrets. (I knew there was no way the Bachelor/Bachelorette could remember all of those names during a rose ceremony!!)

Craving this Avocado, Mozzarella and Bruschetta Chicken from Iowa Girl Eats. Serious. Yum.

Preparing to try and teach myself the art of Google Plus this week. I have a profile on there and occasionally post recipes, but know literally nothing beyond that. Except that it’s the 3rd largest social network. And it’s supposed to be really helpful for bloggers. And I probably should have been actively using it about a year ago. Oh well, hopefully better late than never. If you’re on, feel free to come find me (or add me, or whatever you do there!).

  1. Glad I’m not the only one who’s contemplated 23&Me…glad you’re joining the Nashville bandwagon…glad you can get cheap(er) coconut water at TJ’s…glad you started this currently thing!

  2. So sucked in by Nashville!! I was about 4 episodes behind but I used this freezing cold weekend as the perfect excuse to get all caught up!

    And love the behind the scenes Bachelor/Bachelorette deets :) My girlfriends and I have a watching party every week and love picking apart what we think is real and where the producers have gotten involved.

  3. Hadn’t heard about 23andme. Let me know how it goes if you do it. And I also like this “Currently” idea. Good one. :)

  4. a tree grows in brooklyn is one of my all-time favorite books!! I have read it so many times :)
