Currently: December 2015

I haven’t done a “Currently” post since I was waiting for Match Day, so I thought I would do one more this year.

My in-laws coming into town on Christmas Eve. I am so thankful they will be spending Christmas with us.

I am so bummed Christopher has to work on Christmas Eve all of a sudden. I was prepared for him to work, but then they told us he had the day off, and we were super excited. It stinks to think you get to spend time together and then have it taken away.

Excited that Christmas is on Friday, and I still get three full days with my love and his family!

Angels Burning by Tawni O’Dell (c/o NetGalley). It’s an interesting book about how the violent death of a teenager shook a town and brought out parallels between this killing and the police chief’s mother’s murder. It comes out in early January, so I will be writing more about it when it comes out, but I am really liking it so far.

Skyler eat her Nutro Moist-N-Chewy Bites she received from Chewy. The treats are all-natural, and you can smell the hickory barbecue flavor as soon as you open the bag. I love the size, and Skyler wouldn’t mind eating the whole bag.

I received these treats courtesy of Chewy, but all opinions are my own.

All the Christmas decorations around Chicago! It’s so easy to get into the Christmas spirit with how beautiful it is here.

To clean up our place and finish wrapping all the gifts before my in-laws arrive!


  1. Hooray for your inlaws coming in town, but boo for Christopher having to work on Christmas Eve! I know exactly what you mean when you start planning for some time together only to have it ripped away. It sounds like you're going to have a wonderful Christmas with family in Chicago though! I'm sure that it feels more like Christmas up there than it does in Texas!

  2. oh i'm so sorry he has to work, that sucks :( i hope you have a fabulous christmas!

  3. Ugh, I'm sorry he has to work! It sucks they got your hopes up saying he had it off and then took it back. :( But at least you get to spend time with him and your in-laws! Have a great Christmas!!!

  4. I'm sorry he has to work tomorrow, but I'm so glad you'll have family there this weekend!

  5. Having in laws coming by sounds fun, I hope you get all of the wrapping done before! It sucks that he has to work tomorrow, it's not fair how they did that. Angels Burning sounds like a pretty interesting read, I will have to bookmark it!

  6. I'm sure Chicago is beautiful during the holidays. Sorry Chris has to work tomorrow but hopefully you guys can have a lovely Christmas day together and with the in-laws.

  7. Ah that really is a bummer you can't spend x-mas eve together - I'm sorry girl!! I hope you have a great time with your family and enjoy all the sights of the city! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  8. What a pretty puppy :) Have a lovely Christmas!!

  9. Merry almost Christmas pretty lady!! xo

  10. Yey, family coming to town, but that is a bummer Christopher has to work. Hope you have a marvelous Christmas!
