Seven Quick Takes


Do you know how hard it is to not blog about wedding junk on any other day other than Wednesdays? But, a promise is a promise, and I won’t talk about wedding details until Wednesday. I’m trying to decide what topic to choose for next week’s Wedding Talk Wednesday post, so I’ll let you help me decide! Your choices are: A) The Dress, B) The Photographer or C) Budgeting. In the event of a tie, I’ll talk about both! (Or all three … whichever way it works out!)


I finally decided to pull out my Christmas decorations from underneath the basement stairs. And that’s about as far as I got, other than hanging my wreath on the front door. I don’t plan on getting my Christmas tree until maybe next Saturday. I’m pretty sure it would die a quick and painful death if I got it any sooner. And I really wish I had a mantle to hang our stockings on! I think that may be a must-have feature in the next house Kyle and I buy. Having stockings on the wall just looks silly to me.


At exactly 4:47 p.m. (according the the clock on my computer at work), the ventilation fan at work turns off and it’s so amazingly quiet in the office. I can actually hear the police scanner in the newsroom quite well, and it’s amusing.


I have no idea what I’d like for Christmas. Seriously. Kyle keeps asking me. My family keeps asking me. I. Don’t. Know. If anyone is willing to throw out a couple suggestions, I’ll happily consider putting them on my wishlist.


I’ve been trying to figure out what I’d like to get my bridesmaids as a gift for putting up with me. (Okay, I’ll put one wedding point in this post!) I’ve really been leaning towards these from Ritzy Misfit. They’re cute and fun and may be my first Etsy shop purchase!


I went to Job #2’s Christmas party last Saturday and it was a crunkin’ good time. My feet hurt for three days after wearing my 4″ stilettos for a couple hours too many. I won an amazingly soft and cozy faux mink blanket. I can’t wait to snuggle up with it on my couch with a book if I ever have enough spare time to pick up my book again! I’m still only about 1/3 of the way through the Girl Who Played With Fire and I bought it at the end of October! That’s a new record for the longest amount of time its taken me to get through a book.


I’ve really been craving yam fries lately. I may have to buy myself a yam and whip some up. I have the best recipe ever thanks to this post by the amazingly crafty Kyla Roma. Mmm … yammy goodness! Yum yum YAM! I yam what I yam.

Okay, I’m done. Have a fabulous weekend! :D

  1. I like hearing about wedding stuff so I vote: TALK ABOUT ALL THREE. And, hell, if wedding stuff is taking over your life, blog about it more often! I blogged about Europe planning almost every day and then marathon training close to every day when those things took over my life :)

    We’re not decorating this year. I’m sad about it but we won’t be hear for the holidays so I don’t really see the point…


  2. I cheat and get the precut yam fries from the produce section (by the tofu) and then bake them with olive oil and rosmary. As far as the wedding: I want to hear about the dress!
