It’s hard to believe it’s been almost two years since I last posted a “Currently” update, but now seems like as good a time as any to recap what we’ve been up to lately. Better late than never, right? Enjoy!
My Antonia by Willa Cather. It’s my second time reading the book and I am intent on savoring it this time around vs. rushing through it like I did in college.
Trevor Noah’s Netflix special “Afraid of the Dark.” We first found Trevor Noah during the presidential campaign season when he had funny (but poignant) bits about the candidates. His standup on Netflix was more of the same – hilarious but genius commentary on current events/the world/history/humanity/etc. Highly recommend – he’s extremely talented!
Birthday/match week treats for Nathan! We had a fun Saturday afternoon date whipping up chocolate dipped coconut macaroons (which are becoming a birthday tradition for him) and Oreo cake balls (recipe below).
OREO CAKE BALLS
- 25-40 Oreos (we just used what we had on hand which was ~25 Oreos)
- 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
- 12 oz. chocolate bark (I used white chocolate and semi-sweet)
- Crumble the Oreos (this would be a fun job for a kid!).
- Add Oreo crumbles and cream cheese to electric mixer.
- Mix until well blended.
- Shape into ~1-inch balls.
- Refrigerate for one hour.
- Melt chocolate bark.
- Dip balls in chocolate.
- Refrigerate to harden.
Winter clothes, since, you know, it’s still freezing and snowing here and everything 🙂
Currently laughing at:
The One America sign downtown. They post a new joke every week and I find them perfectly cheesy and hilarious. A couple of their latest jokes:
“Mountains are not just funny. They are hill areas.”
“Dogs cannot run an MRI but catscan.”
The new hair products I won from my hairstylist in a giveaway on Facebook: Sebastian Thickey Foam and Sebastian Potion 9 Lite. I normally never use any product in my hair (besides shampoo and conditioner) and I’ve been really impressed by the difference they make! I might even start buying them once the free samples run out… maybe 🙂
What are some of your current favorites?
