Listing List

Here we goooooooo!

1. It's time to start crafting for Christmas presents. Does anyone have any good ideas for men? Or women? Or things I should make for you? (-:

2. On Monday I made a Pear and Chocolate Tart and after some adjustments in the temperature and quantity of pears, it was delicious. The recipe is right here. While I was making it we were in this massive thunderstorm warning, that means my light sucked. Adjusting the light with Photoshop Elements results in this still-overly-yellow photo:
ganache in a crust
This is natural light:
chocolate pear tart
Do you see what I mean? Natural light makes it look yummy.
And flash? Not on my camera.

3. Speaking of natural light, I love the light on Hanklin's fur.
Hank is driving me crazy. He wants to sit in my lap. All. The. Time. He's not exactly a lap-sized cat. Plus, it's annoying.

4. The soundtrack to Elf is amazeballs.

5. I think fall is over.
I don't know how I feel about winter since it's been about 3 years since I actually experienced one. We shall see.

6. I am going to Kansas in a week and I'm going to squeeze my nephew's face!!! Get ready Brody, auntie amy is coming!!!

7. I purchased these shoes when I went boot shopping:
I think they're hawt. Not sexy hot, but trendy-cute hot; I can be a hip, modern girl. The perils of finding boots are heavy in my life, that will take up a whole post. My sister-in-law will hate them. I also will wear them with tights which she'll hate even more. Mah-hahahahaha.

8. I was debating a minimalist wardrobe. Then I realized I have over fifteen dresses and one or two cardigans and I don't want to get rid of any of them. So I'm going with my own kind of minimalism of "if I don't love it, get rid of it." Which also means I have to break my habit of "it's a super-duper bargain and I need it because it's cheap!!!" to spending what I need to for pieces I love. That's a tough one.

9. I got this amazing, awesome, dense, perfect memory foam mattress topper from my family for my birthday. It's 3 inches of heaven. If you're looking for a mattress topper, ask my mom where she got mine because I can't drag myself out of bed in the morning because I'm so happy to be there.

10. I've been at Starbucks too long and I think the employees are giving me the eyeball. Are you giving me the eyeball? Is it ok that I'm sitting here? OK, I'm going home.
