Watching…I love watching TV on DVD an entire season at a time. I don’t have the patience to watch to week to week — I just want to watch every episode back to back to back — so I have Sons of Anarchy season 4 and all episodes of Call the Midwife is all queued up and ready to watch over Thanksgiving. Unlikely pair, right?

Reading…I’m working my way through a stack of books and just finished The Newlyweds, a really lovely “story of love and marriage, secrets and betrayals, that takes us from the backyards of America to the back alleys and villages of Bangladesh.” I don’t think the dramatic scenes were quite as dramatic as the author intended, but the story had a flow that was irresistible. I’m now diving into a galley of The House Girl (One of the perks of working in publishing – I get to read new books before they are published!) and all signs point to it being an excellent read.

Listening to…I really feel like John Mayer’s latest album, Born and Raised, got overlooked. It’s so mellow and groovy and has quickly joined the ranks of O by Damien Rice and the soundtrack to Amélie as the albums I listen to to chill the hell out.

Eating…Cuties. You know, those tasty and adorable little clementines. I’ve had my eye out for Cuties for weeks and I was so excited to see my grocery get a shipment last Friday. For the next several months I will literally eat a 5 lb. box a week.

Looking forward to…Tulum! No traditional Thanksgiving for our family — this year we’ll be celebrating together in Mexico. We’re having Thanksgiving dinner at a little beach-side restaurant called Hartwood and I’m so looking forward to it.

Dreading…Leaving my dog at the puppy hotel for eight nights. I hate being a big baby about this, but I just feel so bad that he has to be away from home for so long. Please tell me his tiny little pea brain thinks I’m just going to the store?

How about you? What are you up to?

  1. I binge on TV shows while I knit and just started watching Community from the beginning. Love it and can’t believe it’s taken me so long to watch it! We also gave in and started watching Homeland.


    1. Community and Homeland are both on my to-watch list. I don’t have a television in my living room, so I’m way behind on everything!

  2. Sons of Anarchy is one of THE best shows ever! I think in another life I’m supposed to be Jax Teller’s old lady, LOL! By the way, I never received Gone Girl from your friend. It’s no big deal, just wanted to let you know in case you were waiting to get it back.

  3. Love Tulum. Just got back from a week there at the end of October. You MUST eat at Pollo Bronco in town for lunch one day. They roast chickens and serve them with tortillas, rice and salsa. Also, try the papas con queso. If you’re looking for an excursion, ask your reception if they know an American named Nick. He took my boyfriend and I snorkeling in Akumal with the sea turtles and then to a newly opened cenote called Pet Cemetary (weird name, but it’s was amazing!). He charged us about $80 per person, and it was so worth it. I never comment, but I had to share! On beach road, Mezzanine also has really good Thai food and I had really delicious grilled fish at Om. Enjoy!

    1. THANK YOU for commenting! My sister and have boyfriend were in Tulum for a wedding earlier this year, but this will be the first time we’re all there to vacation. I know she wants to visit the cenotes and we’re always up for restaurant recommendations.
