Thinking Out Loud

Hey look! It’s me doing a Thinking Out Loud for the first time in forever. Thanks to Amanda for hosting!

Let’s jump into some random thoughts!

Christmas at our first apartment…

This is the first Christmas that Kyle and I are spending in our very own apartment and I couldn’t wait to decorate our small space! The day after Thanksgiving, our door front was decked out. How cute is that little lamb I found?!

A little further into December and we had our tree! We found the right one almost immediately and were back to our apartment, tree in hand, only 35 minutes after we had left. When does that ever happen?

For now, we are going with a classic tree with simple ornaments + a few special keepsake ones. We got one string of twinkly lights and they definitely add extra cheer to our tree! We actually haven’t had too much trouble with the kittens and knocking down ornaments, so we lucked out.

The Kitties

An obvious source for weekly Thinking Out Loud posts… the kittens! We are so in love with them and they really do brighten up our lives. We used to not spend much of our free time in the apartment, but since we got them we love hunkering down and spending cozy days and nights in with them. They make us laugh constantly and are just the cutest!

Fiber One Caramel Nut Bars

Anyone else try these? They are SO good and taste like candy bars. I’ve been having one for breakfast with my usual latte and it’s the best way to start the day. Kyle loves them too!


Spiced Apple Cider Toddy

Currently sippin’ on one of these bad boys as I type up this post! It’s light, delicious, and warms you right up. Perfect for a little pre-bedtime de-stresser :).

Spiced Apple Cider Toddy- just 4 ingredients in this cozy alcoholic drink!


Kyle and I have tickets to go see Hamilton tomorrow and I am SO excited. I’m a Hamilton FREAK and was so pumped when Kyle told me he had gotten us tickets as a surprise. I hope it’s everything I’ve dreamed of!

He’s the best.
