What I Got:
Borrowing Trouble by Stacy Finz - I loved the first one in the series when I read it a year and a half ago and it's definitely one I want to catch back up on. This is the newest book in the Nugget, CA series by Finz and it features a former chef! (NetGalley)
The Study of Seduction by Sabrina Jeffries - While I enjoyed her last book I didn't love it but I did love Edwin who was the brother of the heroine. I'm excited to read his story! (NetGalley)
Murder in an Irish Village - Really all I needed to see was the title. I cannot resist a cozy set in Ireland especially when it involves a bistro on top of everything else! (NetGalley)
Reading: The Wanderer by Robyn Carr and Killer Run by Lynn Cahoon
Listening: Casino Royale by Ian Fleming and the Super Serials Podcast
Watching: Hulu completely made my day and put up the first 12 seasons of Top Chef. I'd watched all of season 12 the week before Christmas and am excited to watch older episodes. Other than that not much but I'm looking forward to getting caught up on Elementary and Criminal Minds
Off the Blog:
Christmas decorations are put up and the house looks so weird without all the stuff! I always love having everything out but hate packing it all up every year. I'm at the part now where I'm swearing I'm never decorating again but by November of this year I'll be anxious to get everything out again.
School started back this past week and we are starting to get back in routine. We're going to bed a little earlier and getting up WAY earlier and I have to admit that I'm not loving that part! I've actually started cooking again which took some getting used to it but it's great to be back in the kitchen.
For Christmas I treated myself to a big order of Lush bath bombs and they arrived this week! I'm so excited! I haven't gotten any in ages but I always love them. I'm looking forward to some long baths with good books.
I made these Copycat Cosmic Brownies from Mandy's Recipe Box and they were so good! I've never had a Cosmic Brownie so I can't say for sure how copycat this recipe is but it did get devoured! Eleanor's boyfriend said that they were what Cosmic Brownies wished they tasted like so I'm taking that as a good sign!
