Currently (January 2020): Cat Cuddles, Favorite Things, and More!

Posted February 5, 2020 by shooting in Personal / 49 Comments

I’m linking up with Anne for Currently and Kristen for What’s New With You?

Loving: that my shows are back on. I’m loving A Million Little Things and Prodigal Son in particular. These are vastly different shows, but they are two that I MUST watch every single week. Does anyone else watch these shows?

Embracing: cuddles with my cat, Charlie. He’s a bit of a cuddle-bug, but not 100 % of the time so I’m always happy when he decides to hang out with me.

Tasting: Chili Cheese Dip – my sister made it for the Superbowl. Yum yum.

Wearing: layers. For one thing, I’m almost always cold these days. For another, Cincinnati weather doesn’t know what it wants to do! Warmer, rainy, some snow. Everything all in one week? You betcha! It’s easier to just wear layers – especially with sweaters, etc. – so I’m prepared for the various temperatures.

Preparing: for my Favorite Things party later this month. My sister and I are hosting it and I’m really excited. Don’t worry – I’ll do a recap post so I can share all the fun details. Also, I’m hosting a Favorite Things Giveaway Hop on the blog, starting February 10. Want to join?! Sign up now!

  1. I’ve never even heard of those shows! I’ll definitely have to have a look to see what they’re about. I love to cuddle with my fur babies. My cat likes to snuggle and I just love that! Winter! I’m in north Texas and it’s always a bit this way, but we went from 80F on Sunday to 35 degrees this morning. Definitely layers are the way to go. How fun to have a party to plan. I think I need to have a party sometime this year – it’s been a long time since I’ve done one and there are so many great ideas and guidelines available online now. Happy February!

      Yes, I love planning parties. I used to do more themed ones in the past, but not so much lately. And definitely check out the shows – I hope you like one or the other, if not both!

    Yay! I can’t wait to hear all about your party, and hope to see some pics over on the ‘gram too! Count me in for the chili cheese dip please. Sounds so yummy. Like you, I was thrilled that most of my shows are back, and yes, I’m hooked on the dark Prodigal Son. I’m a Law and Order SVU fan, along with Amsterdam, Chicago Med and Chicago PD and a host of others. (lol) Happy Hump Day! RO

    Layers and cheese dip sound pretty heavenly. Layers are my way of living now! it was like 29 degrees last night, that is like apocalyptic weather for So. Az!

  4. Ah, a favorite things party is such a fabulous and fun idea! Love it. Same thing here with the weather – though I still miss how Cincinnati’s is a milder version of what we’ve got going here in Michigan, even if it has been a relatively mild winter for us…

  5. I love chili cheese dip! We had it at our gathering too. And cat snuggles are the best. I love A Million Little Things! I’m about two episodes behind right now but I really enjoy it!

  6. A favorite things party sounds so fun! I know what you mean, I have been all about the layers lately as well. And that dip sounds so good!

  7. I’ve heard great things about both of those shows—especially A Million Little Things. And yay for kitty snuggles ? I can’t wait to hear about your favorite things party! And I’m living in layers lately too. The weather fluctuates so much lately!!

  8. Yay for cuddly cats! Mine sadly has not been very cuddly lately so I’m kinda sad, but hopefully she’ll come around soon. Looking forward to seeing how the party goes–I hope you have lots of fun!! :]

  9. So glad to get your email about Favorite Things. I need to reread it and get it onto my agenda.
    We have enjoyed some kitty cuddles lately because our girls get so cold in the winter. They love our bed with its electric blanket.

  10. Charlie looks as though he’s completely at home, so adorable Lauren! I can’t wait to hear all about your Favourite Things party! At the moment I’m trying to take as many layers off as possible. Even on the cooler summer days, I’ve been feeling really overheated. Hope you’re having a wonderful week of reading Lauren and that the weather’s been looking up!
