Currently: Holiday Edition

I hope you’re all enjoying the holiday season! I thought I’d pop in and share what I’ve been up to lately.

Currently Reading


I just got the second volume of the 804ork Cookbook, a collection of recipes and stories from local restaurants here in Richmond. If you’ve ever wished you could try the delicious food here, then grab one of these cookbooks! It’s been fun flipping through it and reading more about the stories behind some of my favorite restaurants.

Currently Drinking

My parents also got us a Sodastream for Christmas and I love it. I don’t know why I like soda water so much but I do! I’ve mostly weaned myself off Diet Coke but sometimes I just want something bubbly. Rather than buying more boxes of La Croix, I can just make it at home! It’ll also be fun to try the different flavors!

Current Eating

This healthy baked macaroni and cheese will satisfy your cheesy cravings without all the calories and fat of traditional macaroni and cheese. It's a perfect side dish or vegetarian main dish!

I made a batch of this broccoli macaroni and cheese for our Christmas dinner and I ended up eating the leftovers the next day. So I guess I’m kind of cheating with this one because I’m not eating it right this minute.

Currently Wearing

Alex got me this sweatshirt and I love it. It’s so soft and obviously, I’m a sucker for a good vegetable pun.

Currently Planning

The next Tone It Up challenge starts January 1st so I’m excited to get back into a regular workout routine. I’ve been battling a cold since before Thanksgiving so workouts have been pretty low key around here while I let my body rest. Now that I’m feeling better, I’m excited to hit the ground running (literally) in January!

What are you currently doing?

  7. I have the same sweatshirt!! lol! I absolutely love it – so cute and warm! 🙂 I also have a Sodastream and need to get back into using it.

  8. We bought a sodastream nearly 2 years ago and we LOVE IT. I don’t make actual soda with it (gross!) but soda water is the It’s also great as a calorie-free mixer for liquors like rum and tequila 😀 If you need a hack to fill the CO2 tanks, hit me up – my BF does it on the cheap and can share his secrets (hint: it involves dry ice).
