Weekly Obsessions – January 19

19 Jan

So guess what?! Just before Christmas I got an iPhone 4s, and I am still excited about it! I once told the world that I would never to succumb to apple’s innovate ways with a telephone but, alas here I am talking to Siri like we are old pals. I guess, I just didn’t know what I was missing when I had a blackberry. So much so, that I devoured a months’ worth of data in my first 6 days of ownership. Meaning game over for 25 days, oh well, at least it was pretty to look at, thank god I am back in action…lesson learned.

The obsessions continue with Santa, and by Santa I mean my friends and family, were pretty darn good to me this year. I got some amazing gifts. Including, my shiny new food processor! It is bad ass, seriously, I will never chop another thing in my life. It makes cooking so much easier and way more fun. Who wouldn’t want to just throw in a bunch of veggies, push a button and have all of your salad toppings chopped in like 3 seconds. More importantly, my days of raccoon eyes from onion chopping are over…WINNING! Oh man, I don’t know where that came from. Please except my apology for that Charlie Sheen outburst, I don’t know what came over me.

Moving on…with the addition of the food processor to my collection, I think I have pretty much every kitchen gadget imaginable. Seriously, where does my obsession with small appliances come from…I have no explanation.

However, I can explain my obsession with another new toy I received for Christmas because it is really not strange at all. I think a picture is worth a thousand words, or in this case maybe just 5. You’re jealous, I know it! (That’s 5 right?!)

I love a lot of things in life, which I think we all know. This handy contraption combines 3 of them; a glass of delicious wine, a great book and a bubble bath…what more could you ask for?!

On that note, to the bathtub I go!


Happy 2012!

I know it’s a little late but seriously, with all of the holiday festivities I highly doubt you would have had time to read a New Years blog post. “Hey guys, hold that count down I am just finishing reading Kim’s blog post”. Not likely people! I have come to accept that I am just not that important, and that is A-Okay with me!

2011 was filled with some pretty amazing things, here are my top 5:

1 . Well duh, I started this blog with the infamous Health Tip Friday. And guess what, people actually read it,  amazing, I know!

2. Wine tasting in Sonoma was definitely something that was on my bucket list, it lived up to all of my expectations and was truly amazing.

3. Traveled to the land of Country Music and Cowboy Boots, Nashville, Tennessee otherwise known as the Happiest Place on Earth. And while I was there met Guy Fieri, no big deal!

4. Watched not one but two of my best friends get married in the most beautiful weddings!

5. Cruised the Caribbean with my favorite people!

It was definitely a year of travel and adventure, I can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store for me!

Side note – this was my New Years Kiss. Hope you had a little bit more luck than me 😉

Wishing all of you a wonderful 2012!
