Randoms on a Friday


  • It’s going to be 70 degrees today. Two weeks before Christmas. What kind of alternate universe is this?
  • Speaking of Christmas, I have done no shopping except for Santa Claus. Every year I say I’m going to be finished by now and every year I am scrambling on Amazon.
  • There is ONE WEEK until Star Wars the Force Awakens comes out. Tell me I’m not the only one excited and plotting how to get to the movies that day?
  • I still haven’t gotten through all of my Disney photos. I mean, I’ve looked at them, I’ve even picked the ones I like the most. But I haven’t edited them or organized them. Sigh. I wanted to get my book from Artifact Uprising  by Christmas but now…um…no….
  • Speaking of photos, be on the look out next week for a post about renting a lens. I rented the Canon 24mm f/1.4L II Lens  for Disney from and I was pleased! I got a lot of questions about how to do it when I mentioned it last month.
  • I listened to the first episode of Season 2 of Serial…..I’m hooked.

I made gluten free gingerbread men, recipe will be up next week.

  • I made gingerbread men this week. I’m shamed that I had to make another batch so that there would be some for the boy when he got home from school. Recipe will be up next week.
  • Does your family do a big Christmas meal? My family treats Christmas like 2nd Thanksgiving. Actually, it’s bigger than Thanksgiving. There is more food. More people. Christmas is BIG. And I am the cook this year. Pray for me.
  • Starbucks is giving away free Starbucks for life. #thatisall
  • I’m almost Finished Shonda Rhimes book Year of Yes. GET THE BOOK!
  • I started running again this week. It’s been over 6 months, so my body is giving me the major side eye.
  • We are on Day 11 of our Eyecandy Holiday Photo Challenge. You can still join us over on Instagram. I am loving all the photos! Follow the hashtag #eyecandyholidaychallenge on Instagram to see everyone’s amazing photos.
  • I’m planning content for next year, is there anything you would like to see, learn or hear about here on Everyday Eyecandy? Let me know in the comments or email me at
  • Anyway, enjoy your weekend, hope it’s as warm as ours it going to be!

    1.Global Warming! Lol we’re in the 60s up here and people are still walking w hats and scarves because we’re expecting a blizzard to come outta no where. 2. I want to do an artifact uprising book too, just don’t know of what yet, hmmm. 3. Thanksgiving isn’t our holiday but Christmas is huge for West Indians and since I’m the one with the kid, guess who’s hosting ?? 4. I’m still waiting for the e-book and tips on personal projects might help. Good luck!

    I wasn’t sure Bowe’s story was going to be of interest to me, but that damn Sarah did it again!
    Last year I made gingerbread cookies from scratch because I couldn’t find the Betty Crocker bag mix I used the year before. I found the bag in Target! I’m back to the easy way out this year:)
    Thanksgiving is usually when we do the the whole extended family big meal thing. The last few years our Christmas has been just me and my guys. I make seafood, clams, mussels, fish etc.
    I purchased Year of Yes last week. I hope to get some reading done during the break from work.
    I’m really enjoying the photo challenge!

    Gotta speak up for the Canon 24-70mm lens, i’m a videographer and I use that lens at EVERY shoot. It is an exceptional lens :P. I also just saw that Starbucks was giving away that prize today (while I was getting Starbucks) I seriously thought about entering. haha

    I am loving this weather, let me tell you, lol! I haven’t even started Christmas shopping, but I did just order a couple of NYE dress options, lol. The gingerbread men look cute and I’m sure were tasty. And yes, my family does a big Christmas meal and I’m looking forward to it!

    I LOVE Serial!! I’m so glad its back on and this story is going to be so interesting. I’ve been making gingerbread cookies weekly and still have not made gingerbread men yet. This weather has me all confused.

    Our gift exchange on Christmas is big, we start at home. Then do a second one with my sister and mother and end it with my in laws. The kids love Christmas, we eat, exchange, laugh and spend time with family. In laws cook dinner and I bake sweet potato pie.

    I’m done Christmas shopping.

    Addy keeps asking about StarWars and I’m not into it but I do want to see it. I just don’t know if she’ll sit through it. So we might watch Episode I at home and see how she does.

    I’m sooooooo glad Serial is back. And I have been completely slacking on reading but really want to read Shonda’s book. November was draining lol.

    I am loving these random thoughts and now I’ve got questions. LOL. But that first bullet point….yes that was my EXACT thought a couple of days ago. Like…it’s almost Christmas, why am I sweating and walking around in short sleeves? But I’ll take it! LOL

    I love your random ramblings :). I am in absolute awe of this Spring-like weather in December here in the DMV. I’ve never been into Star Wars, but my husband is dragging me to see it smh.
