Currently / September 2016

This week has been pretty blah, so I thought a fun little survey post would be just the thing. Here’s a quick snapshot of all things currently going on in my life (similar to posts here and here). Hope you enjoy!

(Also enjoy this picture of a minion.)

Reading The Wild One, the third book in the Brooklyn Girls series. It’s a fun, quick read, perfect for the end of summer.

Listening to The Head and The Heart, but thinking it’s about time to bust out some Fleetwood Mac.

Looking forward to a weekend spent at Notre Dame. (!!!)

Watching The Mindy Project on HuluPlus. Binge-watching, to be exact. I went home from work early with a migraine today, so it played in the background of my dark living room all afternoon.

Needing a pedicure. Like real bad.

Drinking tons and tons of cold water—I need to flush out those toxins stat!

Indulging in handfuls of Enjoy Life chocolate chips whenever we have them on hand.

Wearing yoga pants and an oversize Notre Dame sweatshirt.

Wishing that fall weather would show up soon.

Making a Project Life album of our trip to California. It’s really nice and super easy to do, I’m just taking forever to do it.

Wanting a new pair of ankle boots (these or these maybe?).

Loving simple nights at home that are filled with relaxing instead of scrambling to do projects and work. ❤

Now you: Tell me, what are your currently-s?

100 Posts & an A to Z Survey

Well you guys, I’ve officially made it to 100 posts. 100! Yup, I’ve managed to regale you with 100 blog posts about my dog, trying to get up with my alarm, what I’ve eaten lately, and how much I love yoga. (For real, if you have managed to stick with me through this, I ❤ you so much.) In celebration of my 100th post, I thought I’d do one of those blog surveys that I love (read: I’m very nosy). I found this one on several other blogs that I read, but I modified a few of the questions that I didn’t care for. 🙂

A – Age: 29 (!)

B – Biggest Fear: I’ve left the door unlocked or the oven on or a candle burning…this is the mind of someone who’s in a constant state of worry.

C – Current Time: 2:42pm

D – Drink You Had Last: Bottled water

E – Easiest Person To Talk To: My mom. My boyfriend. My best friend. I’m very lucky.

F – Favorite Song: “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” by Elton John

I – In Love With: My boyfriend. (And my dog.)

Q – Question You’re Always Asked: “When will you be done with school?”

R – Reason To Laugh: Lots, but I have been cracking up today thinking about this scene from Bridesmaids. (Language alert!)

S – Song You Last Sang:  “Take Me to Church” by Hozier, but in an obnoxious Broadway voice.

T – Time You Woke Up: 7:20am

U – Underwear Color: Maroon (haha, could anything be unsexier?)

V – Vacation Destination: Like dream vacation? London. But my favorite place to visit that I’ve actually been to is Chicago.

W – Worst Habit: The snooze button

X – X-rays You’ve Had: Uh…like for the dentist and stuff. And of my knee when I initially hurt it.

Y – Your Favorite Food: I’m going to be super basic white girl and say pizza.

Z – Zodiac Sign: Scorpio

Wasn’t that fun? And don’t you feel so much more connected to me?? Haha. But seriously, if you have read my weird, rambling thoughts at any time, it really does mean so much to me. Hopefully within the next 10 years, I’ll be celebrating 200 posts. 🙂 Maybe sooner!

Lazy Sunday

Sunday morning is my favorite time of the week—I hope the rest of the world agrees with me. The weird thing is that I usually don’t see too much of Sunday morning. In my dream world, I would rise on Sunday at 7am, go for a run, make breakfast, and catch CBS Sunday Morning. But lately it’s been more like, sleep in till 10am, grab some iced coffee, fool around on the internet, etc. Which is exactly what this morning has been.

Summer, So Far

Oh my goodness, you guys. I don’t even know where to begin. It’s been so long!

So a little over one month ago, I finished my first semester back to school. I’m now officially on “summer break” (I guess people who work full-time jobs can still call it that?). How have I been enjoying my summer so far?

Top 5 For Friday: Asheville Recap

Hello and happy Friday! I got back from vacation almost exactly one week ago—down to the minute! I’ve taken the past week to slowly get back in the groove of normal life. I mean, it’s always best to ease in, right? Since it’s Friday and I’ve tried to do these Top 5 For Friday posts, I thought I’d do one today to recap Asheville. (Truth: I hate vacation recaps. BUT. We had a lot of fun last week and I’d like to share a few photos with you, if you don’t mind.)
