Hi friends! I hope you’re enjoying the season! We just experienced the first snow of the season here in Massachusetts, so everyone seems to be freaking out a little. I really love snow, but check in with me again in February and I might say otherwise. Last week I put together that massive wedding post I promised you, and it will go up sometime this week! In the meantime, here are some interesting reads from around the internet:

I’m not really a wine connoisseur, so I’m never quite sure what to do in situations where waiters give you wine to sample. Here is the proper etiquette.

Here is an informative article from Vox explaining that bariatric surgery is the most effective weight loss tool according to science.

Wildfires aren’t really a problem in the places I have lived but what is going on in California right now is devastating. Here is a New York Times video that explains the extent of the damage.

Many of you are probably foodies or are close to someone who is. The Today Show provided a list of good gifts for foodies.

National Geographic provided a list of the weirdest animal stories of 2017. Some are cute, like a lioness nursing a leopard, some are weird, like a new species of purple frog, and some are gross, like a group of chimps killing and cannibalizing their leader.

Starbucks is introducing another instagrammable drink—the christmas tree frappuccino. This one sounds pretty good- Peppermint Mocha Crème Frappuccino topped with matcha whipped cream styled to look like a Christmas tree, and decorated with caramel drizzle, candied cranberries and a strawberry.

    You website might be hacked. Every time I click on a recipe it comes up that I won something! Won’t allow me to go to your website.

    Andi- I’m sorry to see you promoting bariatric surgery as a “weight loss tool”. It seems that , in your success, you have fallen prey more and more often to weight loss “miracle” type articles as a source of your advertising revenue. Sad, as your angle historically has been somewhat more balanced and sane and less prone to “diets” , fads and surgical intervention which are useless at best and downright dangerous at worst. Please re-consider who and what you chose to promote.

    Andie I fully support your non-judgmental attitude toward others and the choices they feel they need to make for their health. I also love how you helped your mom lose her weight and what a wonderful support you are for all of us and very inspiring.
