Currently: November

November is always such a bittersweet time of year. Bitter, because I know it's only going to get colder, yet sweet because of all the holidays coming up. Other than the weather, I'm really looking forward to the end of the year.

I'm linking up with Anne and Jenna to share what I'm currently...

{cooking} in my new kitchen. Other than Jona's room, the kitchen was the first room that I needed to be functional in our new house. While I may still move things around a little, I'm happy to be able to use the space to cook and bake all I want.

{planning} a Friends-giving get-together. I mentioned in my goals post that I'd like to host a few friends for dinner, or even make it a full-on Friends-giving. I'll be the first to admit that entertaining tends to stress me out, but I feel like hosting something like that would give me the motivation I need to getting our house unpacked and organized.

{smelling} treats baking in the oven. I've mentioned it before, but I love baking this time of year. Over the weekend I made some cookie bars to take to a friend's house. They tasted great and made our house smell amazing. Come back Friday for the recipe.

{appreciating} my family. Selling a house and moving can be such a stressful process, and I'm not sure I could have survived without my wonderful family. They've been supportive, generous, and have gone above and beyond to help Aaron and I get settled into our new house.

{anticipating} the holidays. I love fall, so I don't want to speed up time, but I'm really looking forward to Christmas. Last year I know Jona enjoyed himself (except when Santa was holding him), but this year he's going to be even more excited to open gifts, spend time with family (who always spoil him), and help me bake yummy treats.

What are you up to so far this month?
