Because there’s a good and bad side to everything…
Fabulous… the success of the first Thinking Out Loud linkup. Floored. Absolutely floored. In no way, shape, or form did I expect such a positive response on the first run, and you guys absolutely blew me away. I seriously had such a blast reading all of your random thoughts, especially because it introduced me to a lot of new-to-me blogs that I’m kind of smitten with. Definitely looking forward to making it a weekly thing here on Spoons, and there’s now a special page for it up top ^^ for anyone who wants to learn more.
Not so fabulous… having to wait another week to do it again 🙁
Fabulous… it’s Friday!
Not so fabulous… Despicable Me 2 is now out on DVD, but I can’t watch it because I put it on my wish list and have to wait until Christmas to open it. But!… it’ll make Christmas extra special 😀
Fabulous… spending a cozy night by the fire with the tree all lit up.
Not so fabulous… spending a cozy night by the fire with the tree all lit up because my furnace stopped working and I literally couldn’t move more than 3 feet away from the fireplace without the risk of freezing.
Fabulous… mooching heat by hanging out in my building’s gym.
Not so fabulous… having to go back to my cold condo after 20 minutes because I couldn’t last on the treadmill any longer than that. Okay that’s a lie. I was in there for 40 minutes, but 20 of those minutes were spent “stretching” (read: browsing the internet on my iPad) on the mat.
Fabulous… coming up with a delicious new recipe for a thick and creamy kabocha pudding.
Not so fabulous… not paying attention to the measurements, thereby not being able to share it with you guys. DO OVER!
Fabulous… heading to the mountains tomorrow! Whoop whoop!
Not so fabulous… still needing to pack for aforementioned trip to the mountains.
Fabulous… The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug comes out today!
Not so fabulous… the fact that I probably won’t be able to see it until I get back next week…
Fabulous… Christmas — T minus 12 days.
Not so fabulous… Christmas shopping — I haven’t even started 😯
Happy Friday [the 13th], friends!
Your turn! What’s been:
Not so fabulous…
