Have I ever mentioned that Andrew gives the best gifts ever? Oh, dang, I have…oh well, it’s totally true!
I convinced him to let me open my present early the other night and this was it! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
I started off simple and made roasted red pepper and tomato soup last night. Insanely good and easy. If you have a Vitamix out there, how do you like to use it? I need ideas asap! Homemade nut butter here I come!

Winter. Apparently this one is going to be a doozy. I think “they” might be right…I’m on my first snow day today! We got a few inches last night and I’ll be honest, I’m loving it.
I definitely have a list of things for every season. These are things that are just mandatory for winter.
I’ve been addicted to Apothic Red lately. My parents got me started on it. Hey, available at the Jay C in Corydon and is decent?! That’s a yes. I am definitely more of a white wine person, but in the winter, even I’m drawn towards the reds.
a super long coat
The longer, the better. A few years ago I got one similar to this one which got snagged and feathers started leaking out….not a good look. I also was a little cold. So this year I upgraded to this one, which is CRAZY warm and durable and cute! However, it is LONG. I don’t know if it’s because I’m shorter than their ideal shopper or what, but this is thing is long, long, long.
hot chocolate and cookies
yoga…it’s pretty much an essential for every season….but if you need to get warm, just do some ashtanga….you’ll heat up quick
Since today’s my first snow day off of work, I thought I would just give you everything I’ve done today. Full on winter mode over here on November 17th! Crazy!

This guy is wild. I recommend following him just to let your jaw drop on a daily basis:
It’s about 50x easier than it looks. Here’s how to get in:
If you need a more in depth tutorial, Kathryn Budig has a great 90 min class towards it on Yogaglo. As she says, “it looks contorted.” Which it does, but it’s not really at all and is super fun!

I once blogged about blogs that I’ve been reading for awhile. I will not repeat any of those here.
I go in and out of phases with blogs, but there are many I really love.
Here’s a list:
Cupcakes & Cashmere (major guilty pleasure…)
The Toast (not really a blog, but a full on website)
There you have it…basically my entire feedly list imported into this blog! I need new ones to read though guys!?! Suggestions!?!?! Please?!

There is more dog hair on my floors right now than I thought possible. I just threw a pile of groceries on the counter and they need to go in the fridge. The sink and counter is full of dirty dishes. The dishwasher is empty thank god. I have to be at the studio in less than an hour. And I still have to write yesterday’s and today’s post.
Like I said at the beginning of this challenge. Participation in any form is fine. So I’m going to keep it super simple.This week I’ve had to rely on yoga, gummy bears, red wine, and my fleece onesie to brighten my days.
As far as if I could have any other job? That’s a tough one because I’m absurdly satisfied with the two I have. However, I’d have to agree with Laura and go travel writer...particularly for some fancy blog, website, or magazine that specializes in renting yurts like these in Big Sur.
