5 things currently making my heart go pitter patter

Y'all are going to kill me (or maybe you don't care), but I'm still "working" on the New Orleans recap aka I've been too lazy to upload/edit all the pics.   I swear tomorrow I am blogging it or you can turn me into the bullshiz police.  To tide you over, here are five things that are currently making my heart go pitter patter:

1. The red cup is back at Starbucks; The official sign that the holidays have arrived!  Why yes sir, that's exactly how you spell my name:

2. My ankle is not completely busted after all even though if you looked at it you'd think otherwise:
I had my appointment with the orthopedic this morning and I got hooked up with a fancy schmancy ankle brace which apparently I must wear at all times for a few weeks.  I was also ordered to do at home physical therapy exercises until my follow-up with him in 3 weeks.  As much as this pains me, I'm not allowed to wear heels so if anyone has some good flat recommendations I'm all ears.

3. Next weekend I get to go pick out my second ever "fresh the farm" Christmas tree!  You have no idea how incredibly excited I get about this time of year.  My first "fresh from the farm" tree from last year:

To all you FREAKS who have already decorated for Christmas: pump the freaking breaks! You're not allowed to decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving, duh. 

4. I'm so head over heels with the recipe site Skinnytaste that if I wasn't so lazy, I'd make a new dish every night.  Instead, I'll stick to trying out something new once a week. My latest creation?  Her dijon herb pork chops.  I died:

5. And last, but certainly not least, that Friday me and my besties are going to see Breaking Dawn!  #TeamEdward  How anyone thinks Taylor Lautner is hot is beyond me.  He legit looks like a wolf IRL. 

Yes, his body is nice, but as Beth said to me this morning, "He's a baby and he tries to act grown.  I'm not down with that."

  1. Your tree is stunning! Can't wait to see what you do this year! :)

  2. i have missed you. i need to catch up on what you've been up to. and i have no idea what is going on with your ankle, but it seriously needs to grow up and start acting like an adult. <3 <3 i need to check out skinnytaste. i hate burgers and fries tonight (totally acceptable since it was american-ish).

  3. when you told me this post mentioned me i was thinking "aw, i make her heart go pitter patter." then i thought..."powder makes it go pitter patter."

    i still enjoy my little shout out as always. :)

    i keep wanting to put up my christmas decor, but it's too soon. so soon. i might do it next Wednesday when i'm off work though. i love my little fall decor too much to put it away.

  4. Love the red cup. You tree is amazing. I can't wait to get mine up!

  5. Braces for injuries are for the birds. HATE. THEM.

    ROBsessed here...we are going tomorrow night at midnight. My other Robsessed girlfriends and I had made it a tradition ever since the first movie came out so we ARE sticking to it. I can't wait.

    The theatre we go to sells wine/beer/margs so we will be hitting that up at like 7pm. :)

  6. stop showing pictures of your nasty ass ankle!

    HAHAHHA! why thank you very much for the shoutout compliment :)

    still, the presentation of your dinner. solo dinner. love it. you best be cooking for me like that when you come visit.

    I have NEVER seen any breaking dawn movies or other vampire crap.


  7. I am gonna quote Raven "I have NEVER seen any breaking dawn movies or other vampire crap." Legit! But you have fun...& Taylor, his head is ttooo small for his body. & yay for the red cups at Starbucks. So I am thinking ppl that work at Starbucks are just bad spellers...I know my name is kinda hard-ish, but yours too? & goodness, I have always wanted a Christmas tree, maybe when I am on my own.

  8. I love your Christmas tree! You definitely have a knack for decor! I can't wait to see this years! I love the holiday cups too!

    Hope everything works out at the doctor and that you ankle gets better soon!

  9. 1. Love SkinnyTaste. Yay for a weight watchers friendly website. Sorry Pioneer Woman!
    2. Going to see Twilight on Sunday at Studio Movie Grill. Yay for drinks!
    3. We get a real tree too. My husband keeps telling me we will buy a fake one on sale after Christmas, but we never do, so real tree for me! Yay!

  10. Haha I think he looks like a wolf also!

    And I love your tree from last year.

  11. your tree is gorgeous!
    and you know how i feel about skinny taste, and those pork chops...

  12. I am alughing so hard at the Robert Pattison quote thingy!!! omg!! need to steal!

    I don't think Taylor Lautner is hot at all!!! I mean with a name like Taylor you would immediately think hottie! but ya he looks liek a wolf or some weird lizard.

    i am totes excited to see Braking Dawn!! had Twilight night last week! #feellikeanerd

  13. Those red cups get me so excited everytime!

    New follower by the way! Can't wait to read more!

  14. The red cup at starbucks is enough for me!!

    Oh, the little things that make a girl happy :)

    PS I love that you love skinny taste, makes me want to cook everything of hers now that you are too! How is that all going?

  15. Red cups = Happy Place :) Glad your ankle isnt completely busted. And sorry to say Boomer and I are solidly Team Jacob, her because he was Shark Boy before he was Jacob, and me from the books not Taytay.

  16. Totally jealous of the real tree. I've NEVER had one. My mom is such a freak... she doesn't want to clean up after it and she's scared the house will catch on fire.

    Target has the cutest flats in my opinion!


  17. Your poor ankle! Its hurts to look at! Love real Christmas trees but I agree NOT til after Christmas! duh!

  18. I love real trees, but I'm too afraid I'd kill it. Not that great about remembering to water things...

    I go to the same Starbuck's every single morning and they spell my name different every time. Once the girl put Jo! Um, yeah, because Carrie sounds just like Jo!! I totally watched her do it too and didn't say anything. I couldn't!

    Never seen any of those twilight movies...totally not interested!

  19. PS Linds, what do you drink at starbucks!?! my best friend is a Barista there, for 5 years. I have NO clue how she has worked there that long. The stories she tells me about her customers, are hilarious and yet would make me run and cry out the front door on the first day! hah

  20. I completely agree with you on the Christmas decorating! You MUST wait until after Thanksgiving. Atleast Thanksgiving day! LOL! Love your tree from last year!

  21. Oh my goodness, your ankle! Hope it gets better soon!

    And those pork chops look amaaazing.

    Yasi @ Hello, Gorgeous!

  22. Hahaha! You crack me up! Your poor ankle! :( Is it the same one as last time??? I hope it starts feeling better goober!! :)

    OH and I am so with you on the Christmas tree thing.

    Come cook for me...please? :)

  23. OK, I know that you have said that you get spray tans. I am a recovering tanaholic! I was wondering if you have any suggestions about getting a spray tan? I have an appt on Friday for my 1st ever spray tan! I am UBER nervous and wasn't sure if there was a secret to it or not! Thanks for your advice!!!

  24. Goshhhh, can not wait to see " Breaking Dawn"!!! I'm totally loving your blog! I 'd love if you visited my blog for multiple posts on all things fashion and style. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.

  25. The red cups are just heaven!

    Your tree is gorgeous, can't wait to see what it'll look like this year!

    The last pic of Edward cracks me up! And yes, Jacob totally looks like a wolf IRL.

  26. My favorite flats are by RocketDog.

  27. Honestly watching Jacob take off his shirt last movie made me throw up in my mouth. I thought I was watching kiddie porn. He looks like a baby and I just can't get down with that. It literally makes me sick to even think about. VOMMMM!

    I will be viewing Breaking Dawn tomorrow at 5:20pm. Not like I'm excited or anything. And while I think the movies are super cheesy and kinda bad compared to the books, you know I'll enjoy myself.

    Next time you go to Sbx, you ARE telling them your name is Nevaeh, right? Don't let me down. I want to see if they manage to spell that right, they probably will. That's what you get for having such a freakishly weird name like Lindsey.

  28. Try the Pepper Steak recipe from the skinnytaste website! Sooo delish! Even the man approved!! Woah!

  29. hi Lendsey. ;)

    that steak looks amazing. mail me some? love new recipe sites. thx.

    sorry for your ankle, hope you feel better soon!

  30. I would love to have that steak right about now :) Looks delish!

  31. Ohhh I can't wait to see that movie.. I wish I was at the premiere right now! And those pork chops are making my mouth waterrrr..

  32. I have never commented before but I thought now is a better time then any. I LOVE you blog, Keep it up girl friend! you are a blogging inspiration!

  33. Oh my gosh!!!! Girl, your ankle looks awful!!!!! : ( Hope you aren't in too much pain!!
