I can’t believe it’s 6:30 pm, and I’m finally getting around to writing today’s recap post. I had an emotionally draining morning, but sometimes you need a good breakdown to feel better. I’m sure my ugly tears had nothing to do with my time of month either 😂 It’s always the few days before where I literally cry at the sight of a dead bug.
Anyways, enough of that. On a happy note, I’ve been addicted to watching the NYT cooking channel on YouTube! I can’t stop! The videos brightened up my day. They just did a cookie week, and watching them cook in their homes in a casual setting made everything so much cozier and relatable to watch. I have a feeling videos like that will be the new Food Network. If you want something happy to watch while working, that’s it! Warning though, you will want to make cookies asap! I’m already planning tomorrow’s bake sesh.
It’s officially the third week of Vlogmas! After hitting publish on this post, I have to hurry up and edit today’s video and get that up on my channel! I now remember why I was so exhausted come January last year. I know my blogs have been a little bit slower this December, but most of my energy goes into YouTube during vlogmas. They will be back to regular programming as soon as December 25th hits! I still wanted to hop on here today to do a mini weekend recap! The mornings are officially frigid and cold here. December weather is like a box of chocolates down here! One day it’s 30-degrees, and the next day it’s 65-degrees. I do love drinking my coffee outside in the morning for a few moments while my dogs play. The sunrise is always gorgeous, but as soon as the show is over, I go straight to my heated blanket on the couch. I’m so excited for you all to see my office when it’s officially done this week! My tweed pull-down shades I had made will be getting installed tomorrow, and then I have a few more pieces to hang on the wall. It’s so cozy, and I can’t wait to start working in my office space full-time! I will miss my couch, but it’s so nice to have a designated spot. On Thursday night, I made the tastiest white bean chicken and kale soup! It was so spicy and flavorful. I filmed the whole thing for vlogmas so the recipe is up on my youtube channel. I’ll add it to my blog soon, too! After making soup, I hopped on a zoom call with Meighan, Kelsey, and Caitlin for a happy hour. That was so much fun! My mom came over on Friday morning to go for a hike and make peanut brittle.
I hurried up and ate a quick breakfast. My gluten-free bread was going stale, so I made french toast with it and a side of warm blueberries and an apple chicken maple sausage. My mom and I hiked the neighborhood trails, and someone hung a swing on the path! It was so much fun! There’s something about swings that bring out the kid in you. We did a casual 4.5 miles before getting started on or peanut brittle! My mom made stacks on stacks! Peanut brittle is so intimidating. I remember the first time making it and I can see why people just buy it 😂 We bagged them all up in the cutest little wrapping, ribbons, and gift tags from Hobby Lobby.
My mom and I stayed up late watching Christmas movies and eating Chick fil a after driving around the neighborhood looking at lights in the golf cart. I had a crazy busy day on Saturday. I had three work projects to do, but it was so fun! This was the only photo I took all day, which is why I had to film a q&a on Sunday! Lately, peanut butter toast with fig slices is my favorite! Kyle and I did a little dinner night in Baxter Village when I got home! We are obsessed with Killington’s Wings! On Sunday, I filmed my coffee Q & A for my youtube channel, and I thought this mug my dad bought me was so funny! I did cut back to one cup of the day, but this mug is about the size of my head! For today’s vlogmas, I’m going to be showing you what I made for lunch…carbless chicken nuggets!!! Of course, I used some leftover chick fil sauce to dip them in. They were AMAZING!!! I’ll do a separate blog just for that recipe!
Well, time to go edit vlogmas! I hope you all have a fantastic week!
