Sunday Lately: Doing, Appreciating, Designing, Humming, Expecting

I'm linking up with the ladies of Blogger Tribe, rounding up my favorite things from the past week.

DOING...  some reading with new cookbooks!  I got the Skinnytaste cookbook recently, because I'd followed the blog for a while.  I also picked up Chrissy Teigen's book Cravings while I was in the Amazon bookstore in Seattle, because my cousin had recommended it.  Love them both!  Beautiful photography and recipes I can make at home.  I think that making new things via Plated has made me more willing to try new recipes, and I love my cookbook collection.

APPRECIATING... ARMY'S WIN OVER NAVY IN FOOTBALL!  They hadn't won since 2001, so I literally waited almost half my life to see a win that I remember.  I started the game wearing my Army sweats, but we had dinner/ballet that evening, so I put on my ring and some West Point earrings to head to dinner.  We were seated near enough to the bar that I could watch the end of the game (I'd been streaming it on my phone on the way to dinner) and I CRIED.  I cried over a football game, and I don't even like football.  But I love my alma mater, forever and ever.

DESIGNING...  I'm reorganizing my family recipe binder into my beloved disc-bound system, because I think it will hold more recipes and be more easy to sort.  My cousin made this beautiful family book, and I've collected cards/recipes from other family and friends, so I want to make it more functional in format.

  all the Christmas songs!  I visited the original Starbucks in Seattle during a work trip this week, and it just felt like Christmastime with the red cups, lights, and chilly weather.

EXPECTING...  more travel in the coming weeks!  I have another work trip, as well as family travel for Christmas.  I'm kind of tired; I haven't even unpacked my suitcase from my Seattle trip this week.  But I'm enjoying downtime at home while I can.  We went to see the Nutcracker ballet this weekend, and I also had brunch with my friend and caught Franklin's Dickens of a Christmas festival.  Good winter activities!

  • On the Blog:  I did a post of some of the restaurants and food trucks around Franklin, TN.
  • On Twitter:  I RTed Mindy Kaling because I've been watching The Crown and this is so true.
  • On Pinterest:  I am going crazy pinning "dream house" things, including ALL THE BUILT-INS on Pinterest.  Like this for a master bedroom. 
  • On Instagram:  Macarons are my fav.
  • Shopping:  I think this rolling pin that also dispenses flour (for rolling dough) is brilliant!

What are you up to this Sunday?
