This and That

This week has been a pretty weird one for me. It's kinda strange not getting up every morning and going to work but it's given me a lot of time to do random productive things I've wanted to do. I've been able to do some Christmas shopping and just clean out my apartment. I feel refreshed. 

Anyways, here are just some random things that i wanted to share!

- I completed a Pinterest project! Here's the original project. It's pretty easy, all it is is tea lights in coffee beans. The heat of the candles makes the room smell like coffee andddd it looks so pretty, too!

- I finally used my crock pot!!! I found a recipe somewhere in the world of the internet for a chicken gumbo. I have never used a crock pot and I have never made gumbo before but it wasn't bad!! I've also never spent pretty much an entire day cooking one meal. Anyways, I can't wait to use it again! 

- Tuesday, Jeremy and I used this crazy ice machine contraption. I have never seen anything like this before, and of course, had to whip out the camera to document. Have you seen these things? It was like a shed in a parking lot that ice magically comes out of. 


- I got a lovely package that I won from a bloggy friend Krystina!! She blogs over at Cup 'a Hot Chocolate and she sent me hot chocolate!! It's so yummy, thanksss you!


  1. What a wonderful week. That coffee bean candle holder is such a great idea! I love the smell of coffee.

  2. I think that ice machine must be a Southern thing! I've been to one in my hometown that actually sings Ice, Ice Baby once you pay! Pretty funny I must say!

  3. yum .. that gumbo looks soo good! Im always looking for new recipies that I can do on the crock pot.. since I have only used it once.. ;/!

  4. I have definitely NEVER seen an ice machine like that!! Weird!!

    And I love using my crock pot. I use it at least twice a week. It helps when I know I'm not gonna have time at 6 to cook dinner. I can just make it earlier and it'll be ready when we are! :o)

  5. i have never seen a ice machine like that either! Love that candle idea will have to try that :)

  6. I bet your house smelt Delicious! I have an ice machine like that right across from my work! I love love love using my crock pot.


I appreciate each and every comment!! I love hearing from my readers :)
