It is Finally Friday!!

I must say that I am pretty excited that the workweek is finally coming to an end and the weekend is here.

So with that being said what am I Currently…


My television watching habits are this…I watch almost no television during the week, but I DVR any show that I’m interested in and want to keep up with so I can binge watch it later. I also love to fast forward through commercials. Don’t you just hate commercials?!? But Anyway…right now my top shows to watch are Empire, The Walking Dead, and Scandal.


Tons of new cookbooks that I purchased on Amazon used…for pennies, I tell ya…pennies!! I actually paid more for shipping than I did for the actual books themselves. I have thus decided to NEVER buy new books ever again and this may not be the best thing for my cookbook obsession.


To EVERYTHING since I took advantage of the free trial for Apple music. I will probably end up with the family plan. I am enjoying all 90’s hip hop right now.


Lots of salads and using up ingredients that I have in my kitchen. Right now I have a full bag of whole wheat flour that I need to use so you will probably see some of my creations that I come up with here on the blog.

Sleep Deprived

That I need more sleep…

That sleep has broken up with me…

Like I miss my pillow.

You get it.

I love that you get me!

I’ll stop now.
