1. Is it Friday yet?

2. Seriously, though, is this week going slowly or WHAT. It doesn’t help that one of my bestest(est) friends is having a baby and I’ve been hanging on the edge of my seat waiting for him to come. I am so ready to snuggle him.

3. Are you guys watching The Blacklist yet? We are OBSESSED. It’s a little bit like 24, but so.much.better.

4. Just, um. Don’t watch it after eating. Or if you have a heard condition.

5. Actually, I know we’ve been watching too much of it because a few nights ago we heard some banging on the roof and the.boy, totally seriously, asked me if I thought someone was setting up a bomb up there. Ummmm, no.

6. How are you guys doing on your holiday shopping? Good? Bad? Delinquent? We have bought nothing. I am so thankful for Amazon Prime. How did we ever do Christmas without it?

7.Β Crying baby-meets-Santa photos. Is it wrong that I get such a kick out of them?

8. Don’t answer that.

9. A few of you have asked where I got the macaron ornament from and the answer is SUR LA TABLE. AKA foodie mecca. No one is sponsoring me to say that. I’m just in love.

10. I made the life mistake of letting Spotify compile a list of my Top 100 listened to songs of 2014 and it is disturbing how bad my musical taste is. I can’t tell you any more for fear you’ll disown me.

11. Hint: Ariana Grande is number one. WHO AM I.

  1. Bahaha this made me laugh so much! My Spotify taste is scary as well. Also, I really need to start watching The Blacklist! Thanks for the tip! x

  2. Alright – my friends at work are always talking about Blacklist, too…. I’ve been trying to avoid getting sucked into any new TV shows, but i may have to give it a try now!

    My sister took my 6-month nephews to see Santa and they look SO happy… Something tells me next year will be different!

    Sur La Table has every food ornament you could dream of; it is seriously heaven!! I love your macaron one πŸ™‚

  4. Joanne, love your Wednesday coffee talks!! πŸ™‚ I always get a kick out of them. . ok, Sur La Table and yes to Amazon Prime. I’m actually almost finished. . but that’s because we ordered 100% online. . makes holiday shopping so much easier. . but I do still have lofty plans to bake a ton of homemade treats, which I want to package in some creative way. . I have no idea when all of this is happening.

    Ugh, I’ve had such a hard time with shopping this year. A combination of not having time and completely lacking inspiration has made it very stressful! I’m normally done — or close to — by the beginning of December, and . . . yeah. No. Not even close. ACK!

  6. I do think this week is going slow but it’s just because I’m looking forward to a day of shopping with a friend tomorrow. Come on Thursday!
    Blacklist…I need to check it out. We were so obsessed with 24 and loved it so if this is better I definitely need to know more about it.
    I’m loving Amazon Prime too but it’s getting really bad. So easy. So clicky. So wrong. Help!

    Have a beautiful Wednesday!

    When I was a kid, I was terrified of Santa Claus and any type of clowns. Terrified. Dolls also scared me, and I never ever had a doll in my bedroom when it was bed time

    see? I am odd too…

  8. The question is did you see her performance last night at the VS Fashion Show BECAUSE SHE KILLED IT. I want to hate her, I do, but her voice is freaking amazing.

  9. Love Sur La Table! It’s very easy to spend too much time in there! Love your coffee talks…I’m ready for my second cup!

  10. Love the blacklist and can’t wait to hear baby news!

  11. Heather says:

    Amazon Prime is a lifesaver. I’m usually ahead of the game when it comes to Christmas shopping, but this year I’m completely behind and have zero ideas when it comes to a few family members. They may just get gift cards for being difficult to shop for. :p

  12. Love The Blacklist…another show you two should check out. The Killing. Omg. SO GOOD. And I completely concur about this week going by at a glacier’s pace. I’ve been off by a day since Monday. Woke up thinking today was Thursday. Foiled again!

  13. Monica says:

    I’ve got a small macaron ornament, a cupcake, and some copper kitchen pots/pans ornaments from sur la table…love them all, especially the copper ones. And you are so right about amazon prime…lifesaver!

  14. Louanne says:

    Love the Blacklist – watching season 1 on DVD – obsessed! I need to scan in Andrew’s first Santa picture – it’s hilarious, yet pitiful.

  15. Pam says:

    I finished the last of my shopping yesterday along with my x-mas cards… can you say RELIEVED!! Phew! I haven’t watched Blacklist but I’ll be sure to check it out. Goodluck to your best friend on the birth of her baby boy.

  16. your macaron ornament is gorgeouuus, omg Ariana Grande, and eeeeee get your shopping on! hurry lady! πŸ˜›

  17. P says:

    Haven’t done much in the Christmas shopping front but at least I got my best friend’s b-day gift a few days early..

  18. Oh, Xmas shopping – not a thing yet – I don’t do much shopping – make most of my gifts but haven’t started that yet either! VERY BAD situation!

  19. Sarah says:

    Sur la table is great! After your last post about the ornaments, I googled sur la table ornaments and had fun scrolling through those beautiful ornaments. They have a BACON tree ornament!! :O My mind was blown. That is where I’ll be going for my future tree to come.

  20. debbie says:

    I’ve done hardly any shopping and I’m starting to get anxiety about it. I need to get a move on here. I think crying baby pics with santa are funny too….I keep telling my husband that because of all the things I laugh at I will probably go to hell when I die!!!! lol….(I have 2 nephews…one is adorable and the other one is the ugliest baby I have ever seen….I laugh at the pictures when no one is watching…see what I mean?)

  21. Kate says:

    Spotify would be so lost with me. I don’t think I listened to 100 different songs this year. Just the same 5 over and over.

  22. I want that margarita in the photo up there! (and yes, can it be Friday already?)

  23. not judging you because of Ariana…because guess who has a similarly (bad) taste?

  24. Hotly Spiced says:

    I just love really bad Santa photos. I see people hogging Santa’s time trying to get their children to stop crying or pull a happy face while the queue behind them doubles in size. Why wait for the perfect shot? They’re just boring. In years to come those bad photos will tell a really good story xx

  25. Kelsey says:

    The best part of this post? The left hand with the ring in the background of your picture. YAY!

  26. Kelly says:

    This week does seem extra long and nope, and thankfully we are almost done all our Christmas shopping – mostly online because the malls are insane right now!

  27. Hahaha, um, so I may have rocked out to “Problem” one too many times in my car. Unwittingly, I swear. Is the Blacklist that good? I’ve seen soooo many commercials for it, but I’m always skeptical of overly promoted tv series nowadays. I might have to check it out!

  28. No musical judgement here. I’m not an Ariana Grande fan, but I may have just blasted Shake it Off and Blank Space by Taylor Swift while on the elliptical for the one millionth time.

  29. Just stopped by to say, somewhat belatedly, congrats to you and the boy. I saw a few of your wedding photos on Facebook – you looked gorgeous and I hope you both had a wonderful day, and of course so many wonderful and happy years to come.

    Blacklist – I’m a total addict. Christmas shopping – haven’t even made a list.
    Hope you have a great one, chica xo

  30. One of the unexpected benefits of moving to the UK is shipping times are shorter and shipping costs often free. In Australia, you had to order online weeks ahead for Christmas. Here, I can be really disorganised and it’s ok!

  31. Lynn says:

    I feel the same way about the show Homeland. I could hardly sleep after last Sunday night’s episode.

    I am all set for Christmas for the little ones, but not so much for the adults. Sigh.

  32. I’ve been so busy that I only got to this today. So in answer to your question, Friday has been and gone. I have not even thought about Christmas πŸ™‚
