Friday Fun

It's hard to believe that we have another week in December behind our belts and even closer to Christmas. It's getting progressively more difficult to focus on work because all I want to do is put on my pajamas, watch Christmas movies, bake, and wrap presents. Such a struggle.


Although yesterday was a bit like Christmas morning because the long awaited new season of Serial dropped yesterday! You all know how much I loved the first Serial and true crime podcasts. This one sounds promising to be just as good as the first! I won't give away too much but it tells the story of Bowe Bergdal, an Army Sargent that was held by the Taliban for over 5 years. However, after his release the story got more complicated because it seems he voluntarily walked off his post. The first episode reminded me a lot of Homeland. I'm excited to listen to this season and spark a discussion here on the blog! 

I definitely got full into the Christmas spirit this week and decorated and began wrapping up some presents. I spent way too much time on Pinterest trying to pick a "theme" for my wrapping and came up with a brown paper and gold scheme. I love how rustic and clean the paper looks and how simple gold touches makes it all pop.



How cute are these Santa babies!



I love cookbooks. I love looking at them, touching them, and occasionally cooking from them. A friend asked me yesterday for a cookbook suggestion for her mom for Christmas. I figured I'd share with you all too!


What's your favorite cookbook?

I hope you all have a great and festive weekend!

  11. I'm so curious about Serial since it's a much more recent case and how that will effect things. Like it's still something talked about in the news frequently. It will be interesting.
