Currently | December

Today I'm joining in with Anne of In Residence & Kellie of The B Hive in this month's currently happenings post. 

doing...getting in the holiday spirit! Last week we attended our annual fundraiser for our alma maters baseball team. It is basically a Christmas party held every year where alumni and current players and their families get together. Unfortunately this year we didn't win an raffles or the silent auction which was NY Giants tickets (which Joe planned to re-sell anyway) but we still had fun with friends we don't see that often! This coming weekend we are doing dinner on Main Street in Bethlehem and then attending Christmas Vespers- which you can read more about here! Oh did I ever mention we live in the Christmas City so there is plenty to do this time of year!



enjoying... the house decorated for Christmas and the Hallmark Christmas Movies. Joe makes fun of me for watching so many, because he thinks they are all the same. But I could binge watch for days (which I did do last year)


cooking...I'm going to change this up a bit and say baking.. I'm trying a few new recipes on my list for Christmas cookies and treats this year! Growing up my grandmother would make over 20 kinds of cookies to put in trays for gifts for family & friends. My mom has since taken that over 

wrapping... gifts of course! I love picking out different wrapping paper and adding on little touches. This year I purchased some winter greenery and berries from Hobby Lobby to tie on each person's pile of gifts!

playing... my new Pandora station is 'Today's Christmas Hits' there is a great mix of the classic's redone by today's artist along with new songs! Embarrassed to say I've been listening to it since early November.
