Best of January

Today's post just makes me feel all warm inside. Talking about my favorite things?! Talking about what has made me happy this month of January?! What's not to like?! Ashley always does this fun link-up on the last weekday of every month and I wanted to join in for the first time ever today. So I'm late to the game, but it's cool right?! I'm starting off fresh in 2013 still! (Sidenote-- where the CRAP did January go?!!!)


#1 Jared and I's healthy eating/cooking. We've been trying out SO many new recipes and having a lot of success with most of them! Plus, as corny as it may sound, I LOVE cooking with him each day. It's fun, we get to talk about our days while making yummy, healthy food. It's perfect! And other than the fact that I still crave carbs and candy every single day- we're doing good! :)
#2 Secret boards on Pinterest. I don't know how I'd be planning this upcoming bridal shower without them?!

#3 Blogging. Since I started taking on blog designs, it's allowed me just ANOTHER way to connect with you all and get to know you. I just recently installed for Jamie over here, and I cannot wait to see her blog start EXPLODING with all your love ;) --hint hint, go see it!-- 

Oh, and another hint?! Alexa is kinda' amazing and is possibly, maybe -just maybe- giving me away later today on her blog. You'll have to read it to understand ;)

#4 Thinking about vacation….and Spring. Yes, I know Ohio still probably has a LOT of winter left, but the teasers this week of temperatures in the 60s was enough to get me excited about pastels, Easter, vacation and sunglasses. It's in sight, people!
#5 Organization!!! We are slowly but surely getting there! You may remember the post I did a couple weeks ago about the 52-week challenge and although I'm not following it completely, I've definitely made some progress. One day everything will have a place :)

#6 The Office. Netflix is our new favorite thing. I never watched The Office when it was actually airing on TV, so we've been watching season after season since December. Can I just say a. I'm IN LOVE WITH THIS SHOW….. and b. the episode I watched last night? Michael's last day. I might have cried a little bit.

#7 Jared Duh, Jared's my favorite every day!


What have been YOUR fave things this month??

  1. I remember that episode of the Office...and I also remember crying a little :) I Love Netflix! I also enjoy cooking with my hubby...but it usually turns in to him cooking and me cleaning up after him. Which is fine, we just like doing things together :) Happy last day of January! (How did it go by so fast!?)

  5. I love the new secret boards on pinterest. I have a public {wedding} board for my vowel renewal and then my secret one that has my actual dress and other details I don't want people knowing yet! I am going to use hem for birthday parties too. Yeah, for making themes it would fun to be able to know how to do that! I just install mine and work on what they give me! :) Not that good with it yet.

  10. This post is awesome! Healthy eating is something I have to work on since I would rather make a chocolate cupcake with hot chocolate flavored frosting than steam broccoli, lol. The Office is one of my favorite shows. I love how Jim is always pulling pranks on Dwight. And, I can't wait for warmer weather either! My skin needs some color because I'm pretty sure I would sparkle in direct sunlight!

  13. Not a spoiler but a heads up, the Office isn't that great without Michael...and I think that's part of the reason why the show is ending after this season :(

  14. The office used to be our favorite show but the most recent season has been awful!! Do you watch Parks and Rec? That show is SO hilarious!!!

    Go you in the healthy eating, blog designing and home organization!! :)

  15. I'm pretty sure that everyone can agree that The Office is one of the best things to happen to television! It's just the absolute best!
    And I've been thinking none stop about vacation and spring! Even though it's far away, I've been thinking of all of my plans for spring break :P
