Current Obsessions

I'm one of those people who finds an obsession, enjoys it for a few weeks or months, and then wants nothing to do with it for quite some time.  Here are my current "can't live without"'s

1. Burt's Bees lip balm.  It's winter and my lips are undeniably chapped and hurting.  Burt's Bees is my favorite way to ease those two problems.  It's much better than Chapstick and it has a nice peppermint tingle to it when you put it on your lips.

2.  Young adult literature.  I've been reading dozens of young adult books recently.  I find that they are filled with more humor, more morals, more wholesome fun, less sex, and less cursing.  I've been devouring book after book.  I have even found a few books that I hope to share with my child someday.

3.  Wii Fit.  A gift from my parents for Christmas, I have been enjoying using the game while trying to stay active.  There is a body test which tells you what your Wii Fit age would be and I have been obsessing over achieving a 24 (my actual age) on the game. It's easier said than done.

4.  Nintendo 3DS.  A gift from my mother-in-law, David and I have both been enjoying playing it recently.  The games are fun, and we are in awe of the fact that the screen really is 3D...without glasses!

5.  U2 and Coldplay.  The two bands I have been listening to non-stop recently.  I keep getting their music stuck in my head, and when I'm in the car it's the only thing that is on the stereo.

As you can probably tell from my above list, there hasn't much productiveness occurring in our household recently.  We've been enjoying ourselves and just relaxing.  What else is there to do in January?  


  1. Sounds delightful! Will you blog a list of favorite reads lately???

  2. I'm very much the same way, except that some of my obsessions are pretty extreme and have been known to last for years. I prefer to call them passions, as in: "I'm passionate about" this or that, instead of "I'm completely obsessed with" it. Even though they're basically the same thing, it makes me feel a little less crazy to say it that way. ;)

    Some of my current obsessions/passions - playing Michael Jackson: The Experience (on the Wii), listening to Mumford and Sons, and (I hang my head in shame as I type this one) watching Desperate Housewives.

    Oh, and Burts Bees lip balm? Divine.

  3. I've been seeing that lip balm everywhere lately, I almost bought some the other day.

  4. Love your current passions, Jenny!!!

    Cindy, that sounds like a great idea. I will have to do that very soon.

    Kristin, it's awesome stuff!! You should pick up a package and try it out.
