One of my favorite bloggers recently did an edition of “Currently- Thoughts about Life Lately” and I loved it so much, I am doing it myself. When I think about my favorite blog posts from others, they are always either 1) something I want learn about and can apply to my life or 2) a peak into another’s life- things they are doing, enjoying, etc! This post was a fun one to put together and gave me some time to reflect on what I have been up to the past few months.
Currently | Thoughts About Life Lately!
Loving | This hat. I haven’t bought it yet, but I will. So perfect for days at the beach! And you can’t beat that price.
Reading | The Year of Living Danishly. I don’t even want to admit how long I have been reading this book. It’s very interesting and I am enjoying it, but it’s one of those books that is hard to get back into after you put it down for a few days…or weeks (shhh 😉
and Better Than My Dreams. Allison gave me this book for Christmas and I cried within the first couple pages because it resonated with me so much. Only a chapter in, but I can tell it’s going to amazing.
Shopping for | Plane tickets! We have a couple trips coming up and I am scouting out the best prices. Any tips are welcome!
Excited about | A trip to Boone, NC in May for my brothers graduation! North Carolina mountains in the spring is so delightful.
Trying to | Cook more consistently. My mom bought me eMeals for my birthday and it has been a DREAM. The best thing is that it completely takes my least favorite part of the cooking process- planning what we’re going to cook. I used to dread this, and now I don’t have to!
Working on | Running consistently. Winter of 2016 I was in such a good habit of running for at least 30 minutes 3 times a week. Well, obviously I stopped but I am itching to get back into a running rhythm. I feel so much better after a good run!
Enjoying | Trader Joe’s Bedtime Tea. I have been drinking this a few times a week before bed. The flavor is fresh and slightly floral. It’s the perfect thing to drink right before falling into a deep sleep.
Using | Grande Lash. This is a serum that is supposed to help thicken your lashes overtime. A friend highly recommended it so I am giving it a try! It’s supposed to take 4 weeks before you start to see results. I will keep you posted!
Wearing | Gold hoops from Anthro. I have been wearing these on repeat since I got them for my birthday in March. They match everything and are the perfect size!
Learning | To not plan. I have an addiction to filling up my life with events and to do’s instead of just being and letting the day take it’s course. It’s actually a problem, and my husband has been calling me out on it for months. So I am learning to not plan. We will see how this goes 🙂
Planning | See above. But truthfully, I am always planning something…it’s just my nature 😉
Singing | This song by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay. So. good. If you see me dancing like a crazy in my car, I am most likely listening to this song. I went through a two year period where I just wasn’t really into listening to music, especially not pop hits…couldn’t stand them. Well, I am now back at it and G105 (our top hit radio station in Raleigh) is always on in my car. #dontjudge Another current top hit fave that I have finally memorized all the lyrics to 😉 Oh this is so good too. Okay I will stop now.
Needing | A unique pot for my new Ponytail Palm! I am on the hunt for the perfect planter. I really like this one or this one. Currently, we have 4 indoor plants. I am starting to name them. Still need a name for this Ponytail though, taking suggestions! My friend Abbie has her ponytail in this beautiful vintage silver bowl.
Wishing | For the pollen to go away. That is all I ask (insert praying hands emoji).
Doing | Deck renovation! This has been a long time coming and we finally have the time to do it! Pretty soon our back deck/yard will be an amazing outdoor oasis and we will be throwing some crucial summer deck parties! I can’t wait. I promise to give before and after photos! I am taking inspiration from this and this.
Dreaming of | Our 5 year anniversary (WHAT?!?) trip in September!
