It seems like everyone has a blog these days.


Even Gwyneth Paltrow.

Her blog, Goop, is great. Each week she posts newsletters on a variety of topics -- cool restaurants, fashion trends, good books to read, recipes, advice -- everything!
And she really has good taste.
It might just a great PR ploy, but I really enjoy reading it!
Check it out!

Look what I made!

JUST KIDDING. Martha Stewart made this.

But I really want to bake some bread! Haven't really done it before.
But maybe this will be my weekend activity.

Any tips or recipes you'd care to share?

We may be rushing things...

I really want it to be Christmas.
We put out the Christmas Candy today at the Counter.
I've already bought our tree. And some decorations.
What can I say? I'm just in the holiday spirit!

Plus, I thought this video was kinda funny - very vintage.
I wish I could ice skate like her!
One more thing, I absolutely LOVE Silk Nog.
Normally, I'm not a huge fan of Soy Milk (or Egg Nog, for that matter)
But WOW! Delicious.
Picked up my first carton of the season tonight at Target!
