what mariel does: taking stock #10 {november 2015}

Making: (or made) a version of this persimmon cake (due to an abundance of persimmons in my freezer)

Cooking: pasta with a fried egg on top #putaneggonit (see my instagram for a photo)

Drinking: at least one coffee a day now (I’ve cracked)

Reading: the lyrics to the Carpenters’ song: (They Long To Be) Close To You (anyone who’s seen the Korean drama, She Was Pretty, knows what I’m talking about)

Wanting: to go WWOOFing at some point…maybe summer 2016 (thank you Lauren for telling me about them!)

Looking: forward to decorating a mini Christmas tree soon…and putting together an advent calendar…and watching all the classic Christmas movies…CHRISTMAS TIME IS HEEEEEERE

Playing: Panama Wedding’s new EP on repeat (so stoked, ‘cuz I’m seeing them live in December…thank you Dan Croll for having them as your opener last year)

Wasting: time sleeping in (seriously, there’s no point in sleeping in after 10:00am, Mariel!!)

Sewing: together my thoughts as I reflect on what I’m thankful for in 2015

Wishing: that there was a more accessible and nearby farm to go to on the weekends (lusting after Stone Barns)

Enjoying: Pinterest a lot more nowadays (it’s so great for idea inspiration organization!)

Waiting: for the next What I Ate In A Day vlog from Lauren Toyota (she’s the epitome of spunk and one of my recent Youtuber favorites!)

Liking: Kitty Cotten’s Youtube channel (just discovered her today, and so hooked on her videos…she also reminds me of a mix of Zooey Deschanel and Lizzy Caplan with a Minnesotan accent)

Loving: FaceTime and phone technology, especially during the holiday season

Hoping: to keep up with blogging more consistently. Shall I go for a post a week? (I feel like this is a constant struggle, consistency. I apologize.)

Smelling: my Rosehip Seed Oil (my new evening, natural moisturizer, super affordable and long-lasting! great value for money)

Wearing: my new overalls at the moment (thank you to my sisters for my early Christmas gift! #farmermariel)

Following: the craze around the new Psy song + music video: Daddy (it’s pretty catchy, y’all)

Noticing: how out of shape I’ve become (ugh, I need to get back on the health bandwagon before Christmas cookie season fully sets in!)

Feeling: grateful for the limited Korean speech that I know and use to speak with my grandmother (cheers to sweet moments with her this past weekend)

Bookmarking: the recipe for this apple cake (it’s fantastic and I reduced the amount of sugar in it, so now it’s perfect for me…)

Opening: lots of blogs looking for advent calendar inspiration (last year, I used Chelsea Petaja’s idea as my main inspiration)

Giggling: at this character from the Korean drama I mentioned earlier, he’s too goofy

Feeling: well-rested from and grateful for this past Thanksgiving break

Have a productive day/night.

❤ mariel
