Loving Lately: Janu-arie

Happy Friday! This has been the longest week, even though it was a short week. I’m ready for a lazy weekend, spent by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate. We’ve still got a pile of Christmas decor we need to take up to the attic, and I need to get the tree taken down and bagged up as well. Other than that, no plans over here!

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Loving Lately so I thought I’d pop on and highlight a few fun ones. So, here’s what’s on my list of things I’ve currently enjoying!

Bloodline on Netflix

Ya’ll, I always say that in a previous life I was a criminal investigator. And before that I was a lawyer. But somehow in my current life I got stuck working in marketing. Ha! To fulfill my guilty pleasure of all things crime, I recently hardcore binged Bloodline on Netflix and was OBSESSED! It was SO good. Well, there were lots of unanswered questions, and if you’re a storyline snob you might find some issues, but overall, it was a great binge and I highly recommend it!

Ellen’s Game of Games

Have you watched this yet?! If not, you can catch it on Hulu. It’s hilarious!! We’ve been watching it at night to put us in a good mood and it always works. We love Ellen so much, so we knew her gameshow would be great!

The Bachelor – Arie!

Pulling a Chris Harrison and calling it Janu-arie! Is anyone else watching this season? I can’t say I was excited about the bachelor being Arie, but here we are. And of course I’m going to watch because I watch every season. So far, my main complaint is the age of the girls. WHY did the producers only pull girls who are all waaaay younger than Arie. I mean hello, Arie is already graying!! He’s over 30, and I feel like almost all the girls are like 23-25. It’s crazy, as usual, but sure to be THE MOST DRAMATIC SEASON EVER!

Adeline + Winter Wear

I usually hate cold, cold weather, unless there’s snow, but I’m loving it a little more this year because Adeline looks so darn cute in her winter wear! She loves putting her jacket on, and will definitely tell you which one she wants to wear!

Target C9 Champion Pullovers

I received this pullover from my SIL for Christmas and I have been LIVING in it! I love it so much. It’s baggy but tailored, and the inside is super, super soft. I love the slouchy neck as well!

Dr Seuss Mini Board Books

If there’s one pile of books we’ve been reading nonstop around here, it’s Dr. Seuss board books! Adeline LOVES these little books and I think we read 5 or 6 every night before bed. They’re colorful, fun, and keep her attention. We have probably 10 different ones, and sometimes Adeline even requests to sleep with a few in her bed and we’ll catch her “reading” them in the morning when she wakes up!

23andMe DNA Ancestry Test

AHHHHH! CAN’T WAIT to do this!! I need to set up my profile online, then do the spitting, and send it off! I LOVE learning about our ancestry and family history so I’m super pumped that Adam surprised me with this for Christmas in my stocking! I’ll be sure to share the results when I get them back!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy some extra downtime! I’ll be back next week with a *hopefully* more regular posting schedule. I’ve got some fun post ideas coming up, so stay tuned!

What’s one thing you’re loving right now? Have you watched any of the shows above? Do you enjoy learning about your family ancestry?

    So i had hopes for Ellen’s gameshow but I feel like it was a letdown with the same games. I mean, I laughed, but wish it had diff games for the two episodes that were on!

      We’ve seen three episodes, and only a couple games repeated it seemed like. But I do wish they were ALL different for sure! We just watch for Ellen’s dead-pan reactions and how funny SHE is! Ha!

    I’ve been debating getting an ancestry test done. It seems so thrilling!

    I watched Game of Games when I was at the gym on Tuesday and it was great! I think doing that ancestry test would be fun. Jordan’s dad did it and found out that the Bumgarners are mostly from Switzerland, not Germany like we thought!

    We’re on the last season of Bloodline and I can’t stay interested! The first few seasons were SO GOOD. But, I feel like maybe it’s too much? lol

      YES! Season 3 (the final season!) was a bit of a hot mess, but I was so invested in the characters by then I couldn’t stop watching! There are so many unanswered questions still, and so many story lines they never really developed!

    First off..I need to check out Ellen’s show I LOVE her and the commercial for it looked hilarious! I feel like it would be the perfect unwinding for the night show when you don’t feel like doing anything intense.
    Cute pullover! I love Target’s activewear!

      It’s funny! I mean it’s not like the most hilarious thing but it’s just a fun, mindless show 🙂
