Tuesday Things.

1. Totally dying over these bitter flavored sugar cubes! I wish I had seen these before last night so I could have made them for today. So, so cool.

2. Over the holidays I had an old-school packet of Quaker strawberries and cream oatmeal, just like I was twelve years old again. It’s so good. I’m not even ashamed.

3. Ummm I’m a terrible person because… I’d be okay if I didn’t see one more “flipagram” on instagram this year. I’m terrible. I know. I’m sorry. Sort of. Hate me.

4. Have you guys gone shopping at all and taken part in some of these massive sales? They are probably ending this week but I swear so many places I went had 40-50-60% off everything. Like I need more everything. I do not.

5. Uhhh please freak out with me because my husband got me the foot smooshed in a cupcake penguin for Christmas. Actually, he used it as a stocking stuffer and I think he actually attempted to stuff it IN the stocking. I can’t handle the cuteness. Can I just keep it out all year?

6. I am in full blown planner organization mode. It’s just like my obsession with school supplies. Pen and paper for life!

7. Had a good giggle over the 50 absolute sexiest things that Ryan Gosling did this year. I wasn’t expecting it to be that… ha.

8. What TV shows are you most excited for this coming year? I’m all about Nashville starting up again and… I actually want to watch Banshee again. We randomly watched it last year and sort of got into it. Oh and Girls. Though I’m fearful. Not sure if I’m prepped for that amount of second hand embarrassment yet.

9. We saw Anchorman 2 last week and it’s not like I had major expectations for it or anything, but I thought it was sort of all over the place? I did enjoy it and laughed quite a bit, but I still liked the first one better. I always ask Eddie “can you even imagine if Will Ferrell was your dad?” Gosh. I’m serious though. That would be fun beyond words. How does he stay in character so well?! I love him.

10. Happy New Year! I have a feeling that 2014 will be the best year yet. What are you doing tonight? I’m making the fattest cheese tray known to man.

    Due to horrible weather conditions here in Michigan, I’ll be staying home tonight and just spending quality time with my parents. We’re making a bunch of fun appetizer food and pretty much having a movie marathon until the ball drops. Coconut shrimp with orange marmalade, crab-stuffed mushrooms, shrimp cocktail, hot spinach and artichoke dip, mozzarella sticks with marina sauce, shrimp wrapped in bacon, ect. Plus quite a few desserts…the most important thing of all!!! My diet starts tomorrow so I am stuffing my face tonight.

    I’m making crab dip (Gah, it’s so, so, so good) and sausage rolls for my husband. Plus, Cosmos and Gin & Tonics.

    Happy New Year, Jessica! :)

    I’d love a fat cheese tray and tons of champagne. I have no plans. As in, zero. Which is just fine by me :) I hope you guys have a great night and lots of great cheese and bubbles!

    I totally agree with you on the flipagram things. And the best moments on Instagram. Very annoying. Bah humbug to me.

    On a happier note, I’ve hit a few sales. Got a few bridal shower gifts (3 showers so far!) plus birthday and a few things I may or may not have needed. :)

    Have a wonderful new year to you and Eddie! Can’t wait to read all of the entertaining posts you write in 2014! <3

    Bahaha, I love the Flipagrams. :) When I made mine I nearly cried. #dork I just had to FINALLY look up the foot smooshed in a cupcake commercial because I still hadn’t seen it. Totally cute. I’m nervous/excited for girls and already embarrassed + grossed out. <3 <3 happy happy new year love

    HA- totally guilty of flipagramming today. Depending on how fast they go (and how many pictures are involved), they can be kind of seizure inducing… which is my only qulam about them.

    Happppy Cheese Day!

    So true story, I’m sitting at work yesterday and I’d just finished a phone call with a client and was flipping through instagram before I got on the phone again, and accidentally pressed play on somebody’s flipagram…and for some reason it played music? really loudly? and I had not been expecting that and i shrieked and spilled the water I’d been drinking All. Over. Myself. I stand up at my cubicle and it looked like I peed. So I definitely also hate flipagram. Cause walking around with my pants soaked through at work is not awesome.

    We’re hosting a few friends at our place tonight – I’d better stop reading blogs & get back to preparing!

    Happy New Year!

    I don’t have a Facebook account, iPhone, or instagram, or anything else along those lines (the surprising thing is that I’m 25 and the most I do have is an iPod), so I’m a bit stumped. What is flipagram? Can someone please explain this?

    The husband and I will be cozying up on the couch for a movie marathon while sharing a pint of Cranberry Porsecco Sorbet.

    Happy New Year!

    I did a flipgram. Don’t feel like you have to check it out. I felt like I needed to join the fad! LOL. I cannot wait for 2014 and what it has to bring. 2013 was rough, BUT I am glad I started my blog. I am so much happier because of it!

    I just stopped by to shout “Happy new year!” at you :-)

    I love your Tuesday Things and I hope you won’t stop posting it all this year…

    Flippagrams are the worsttttttt.

    Thank you for saying that about flipagram! They’re pretty cool in theory- that is, until I don’t expect them as I’m scrolling through my IG feed and the music starts playing and startles me to death.

    Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. — January 2, 2014 @ 5:28 pm

    Happy New Year! I totes agree about Flipagram. Not interested. The strawberries and cream oatmeal is totally the best. And I agree on Anchorman 2. Wasn’t nearly as funny and it was really all over the place. Did you see American Hustle yet? It was pretty good. I mean, obviously, you can’t go wrong with JLaw!

    i got the penguin from Pier 1 last year. He’s out all year long. I walk by and give him a squeeze just to hear “I’m a hugger. Tada” Brighten s my day like no other!

    Those flipagrams are STILL showing up on my newsfeed and I’m getting so annoyed. I go on instagram to see your pictures and stare as long as I want – not have a stroke because I’m trying to pay attention and look @ every picture that dang app can shove into 10 seconds.
