Outlander is freaking awesome!
So it turns out, I LOVE OUTLANDER!!
I hadn’t heard of the book at all until the TV show came out *shame*. When I first read the synopsis, I wasn’t interested. Don’t ask me why, but time travel usually puts me off a book/movie/TV show. I think for some reason I associate it with being cheesy.
But I kept seeing EVERYONE talk about it on Twitter, so I was like… what the hell… and I watched episode one. Then episode two. Then, before I knew it, I watched all of the released episodes! I am thoroughly hooked! And I also now have a weird obsession with Scotland. I’m convincing my husband to take me there for a holiday.
So in celebration of Outlander’s awesomeness, I purchased the book so I could really dig into this bad boy.

Other TV shows I’m watching
My husband and I started watching The Wire only a couple weeks ago. I started out really liking it. It’s a crime/cop show, but instead of having a new case every episode, the entire season focuses on one case. So in season one it was all about taking down this gang of drug dealers who were supplying an entire side of the city.
I think I was disappointed in the ending though… The big thing about The Wire is that it tries to be as realistic and authentic as possible. So instead of being really satisfying, it’s more like bitter sweet. There are some wins but there are also some losses. View Spoiler » [At the end of the season, they did put a lot of drug dealers in prison, but they didn’t really “take down” the main guy. The leader of this group got off REALLY easy and some of the lower down guys took most of the fall. This made the whole show feel really unsatisfying for me. The main guy, Avon, was always a really cocky bastard. I wanted karma to whoop his ass! I wanted to see him fall! But that never really happened… « Hide Spoiler]
I’m rewatching 24
I’ve always loved 24! I started rewatching it a couple months ago and now I’m about seven episodes into season 3.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
I’m a bit late starting this TV show, but I loooove it! It is a bit cheesy at times, but I’m getting really into it. It’s good entertainment. 😉
Low carb heaven
I have one epic low carb gem to share with you guys this week. Introducing: the bacon weave quesadilla. As you can probably guess, we can’t have tortilla wraps on a low carb diet, so a normal quesadilla is out of the question. Then I came across an excellent bacon weave quesadilla blog post and HAD to give it a try!
First, I made two beautiful bacon weaves. These served as the “tortillas” for our quesadillas.
Then I added in chicken and cheese before cooking it some more.
Lather with guacamole and devour!
New Creative Whim design
I finished up a new design this month over at Quinn’s Book Nook. Check it out:
I LOVE how this one turned out and Quinn was such a breeze to work with. 🙂
