Five Senses Monday | Happy New Year!

And now it’s time for Five Senses Monday, where I reflect on the past few days through the five senses. Follow along in the comments or on your own blog. Oh, and happy new year!

Tasting:
Leftover Christmas turkey and tamales. Egg nog (Amber’s right — the Southern Comfort kind is way better than the rest). Homemade chili. Mom’s enchiladas.

Hearing:
My bowling ball slamming into the wooden floor (I’m not very graceful, people). New baby cries. SARK speaking on a very cool interactive video (do you know SARK?). My visiting cousin’s beautiful babies rattling off English and Arabic.

Seeing:
Grey’s Anatomy (thank you, Netflix; I’m caught up with every season … hey, I said I’ve been resting). A friend unraveling a surprise Christmas ball wound with crepe paper and trinkets.

Feeling:
Cold lately. Completely embracing the cliche “new year, new beginning.” Obsessed with Instagram (are you on? find me: “theurbanhippie).

Smelling:
Fajitas in the oven. Cafe. Burgers. Garlic that I thought smelt so good until I realized it involved oysters. And — Amber. She just always smells good — so good that I told her I would have to include her in my Five Senses. So, what’s your secret, Amber?

    Love this like woah! I really need more pup and baby time, just saying. Also, can I request for your mom to make us an Italian dinner? Sounds delish!
