about me, currently


Linking up with Kristen and Gretch for a monthly check in! Today Zoe turns 5 months old. My goodness!!! I need to find time to squeeze in a five month photo shoot at some point. Time is flying!!!

Reading: I am finishing up Royal Scandal from Netgalley.

Listening: I Don’t Know How She Does It on audiobook thanks to the library.

Watching: You guys, I am almost embarassed to say…but I still watch Pretty Little Liars. I mean, I am already in deep so I have to finish the damn thing. There have been so many twists and things have honestly gotten so ridiculous but I cant quit. There are seven episodes left and I better get some fucking answers. I just have a feeling they are going to end the show on a ridiculous twist or something. Like it was all made up and these girls are dreaming this all from the psych ward or something….and I am going to be pissed.

On a more positive note, Lucifer is back!!! So excited about that. I freaking love this show.

Eating: Paleo Banana Bread for breakfast most days. I have been making stir fry veggies and brown fried rice for lunch a lot lately. Dinners are mostly paleo/whole 30 approved. This week was baked pork chops, turkey burgers, kickin chicken, and bacon wrapped steaks. Yum!

Loving: The weather lately! Though, today and tomorrow we are getting a cold snap with rain. Tomorrow the high is 54. For Alabama in May, that is just nuts!!! But the rest of this week has been gorgeous and Zoe and I enjoy going and sitting out front and blowing bubbles together. Gotta protect those precious eyes of hers! We got her some glasses with a band around them to keep them on her head for the beach and pool this summer so we decided to try them out this week. She already has a pretty decent sunnies collection going! All Cat and Jack brand from Target so far. Theseย watermelon ones are my favorites that she has. I am wearing Kate Spade.

Working: After months of attempting to complete my office area, I am in the final stretch! We have a garage sale and a bulk trash pick up day coming up in a few weeks and after that, I should be golden. I want to get the walls painted in here too and have an extra can left from Zoe’s room that I think I will just use in here since it is a neutral gray.

I have also been trying to straighten up/organize the unseen areas in the house. You know; under the kitchen and bathroom sinks, the laundry closet, the kitchen pantry and cabinets. I have a trip to HomeGoods in my near future to get some more organizational things so I can just knock it all out.

Pinning: Which means, I have been pinning all the organizational things!!!!!

How to Organize Under the Kitchen Sink:



I like the shelf above the washer and dryer. It adds to the room.:

    Oh my goodness! Zoe in those shades! Too cute! It started to get really cold, well TX really cold, here last night too & I woke up in the middle of the night with insane sinus pressure. Come back warm weather!

    it’s been a typical spring here in canada – mostly rain, mostly chilly with peeks of sun …. i can’t wait for summer to really hit. then i heard we’re supposed to get FLURRIES this weekend. oh canada, you really are one confused bitch.

    can’t wait to see your office space! i love looking at what others have done with their areas ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy 5 months little Zoe!! She is SO cute!! Love the little sunglasses hehe. I read Royal Scandal and wasn’t super impressed – I had read the first one because it was free on Amazon one day and I just found them to be a bit too crass. Fluffy stories though!! I definitely preferred Royal Scandal to the first one.
    Good luck with all of the organizing! Glad to hear it is coming along for you – that always feels SO good!!!

    Love sweet baby sunglasses! We’re getting that cold snap, too… just in time for Derby. Ugh. I’ve been working under our sinks, too. I found some great under-sink organizers on Amazon. There’s so much stuff!!

  • Reply Laura May 4, 2017 at 9:28 am

    5 months?!? STOP IT. I love all those organized folks on Pinterest. I’ll never be one, but I certainly do love looking at how well they’ve organized everything. Zoe girl is too cute in her sunglasses – at least you can get her to keep them on her face!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! May 4, 2017 at 9:39 am

    Oh your organization pins are giving me life! And don’t worry, I’m still on the PLL train, too. This ending better be good…

  • Reply Stephanie May 4, 2017 at 11:01 am

    I didn’t even know PLL was still on. I watched it in the beginning because I read the books, and then as soon as it diverted from the books, I quit it. Same with Gossip Girl, although I did go back and finish that series and ending up liking it (Chuck is gay in the books and has a little monkey that goes everywhere with him. When Chuck and Blair got together in the TV show I was like WTF?)

    I love babies in sun glasses.
    I used to watch Pretty Little Liars on Netflix but like everything else, got stuck in season 3 – I have issues getting past season 3 of shows.

    Those lovely shelves make me happy.

    Babies in sunglasses are adorable. Great picture of you guys.

  • Reply Audrey May 4, 2017 at 12:33 pm

    Umm… ok. But like, how do those paper towel rolls NOT roll off the shelf?!
    And the color-coding in all those pins makes my heart sing with glee!
    Happy 5 Months to Zoe!!

    Hooray for cooler weather! It was nice and brisk this morning and I loved it, especially since we probably won’t have this nice weather for long! And I totally still watch PLL as well, and I’ve read all of the books. I’m really hoping they don’t end it on some stupid twist either, but I have a feeling that it will. I have to admit, I totally laughed when I saw how Noel died in the finale last season.

  • Reply chelsea jacobs May 4, 2017 at 1:36 pm

    SAME about the PLL train. UGH.

  • Reply Dani May 4, 2017 at 1:54 pm

    Happy 5 months to Zoe! Love that picture of you two. I’m with you on the spring cleaning and organizing. I just got a new desk so I’m hoping to make a little place for it in my bedroom, and get desk organizers/accessories from HomeGoods! I hate it when I’m so invested in a show and it starts sucking, but I just want to finish it. I feel that way with The Walking Dead recently. Hope it warms up down there!

  • Reply alyssa May 4, 2017 at 3:24 pm

    Babies in sunglasses top my list of cutest things ever, haha! Cutie pies!
    I watched all of PLL on Netflix and I think the last season is where I just got to a place of WTF IS EVEN GOING ON WHO IS ANYONE ANYMORE? But I do want to get some resolution so I’ll probably rewatch the last two when they’re available on Netflix.

  • Reply Sarena @ Teal Inspiration May 4, 2017 at 4:38 pm

    I have been pinning all the organizational things too. I hope it’ll actually get me to organize better!

  • Reply Gretchen May 4, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    Zoe is SO adorable in those sunglasses! And I want my house to look like all of those pins…so amazing. Thanks for linking up!

  • Reply Akaleistar May 4, 2017 at 8:10 pm

    The Paleo Banana Bread sounds yummy!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm May 4, 2017 at 9:12 pm

    How is I Don’t Know How She Does It?! I want to read it because it sounds so relatable.
    Love Zoe in her sunglasses. Cute!

  • Reply kristen May 5, 2017 at 8:45 am

    can’t believe Z is 5 months old! i watched PLL a couple years ago but lost track when i got up to date because i hate watching things in real time. i am sure i will get back to it one day, so let me know if it was worth it in the end haha. yay office area and organising things! when i get the motivation to unpack and do stuff, i’m gonna organise the shit out of my house. haha.

  • Reply Jackie @ My Sort Of Adult Life May 5, 2017 at 10:15 am

    I’m totally with you on PLL. I can’t deal with the drama in that show anymore but I have to stick out to the end now that I’ve gotten this far! I’m so ready for it to end though.

  • Reply Alexandra Consolver May 5, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    Hi! I am so excited that we will be snail mailing this month. I think I’ve been here a few times for linkups, but it’s good to get to know you better! ๐Ÿ™‚ What a cutie Zoe is!! Those books both sound interesting too! I have not started PLL, but I feel like I would get sucked in. HAH No shame though! It’s all good! I was that way with Vampire Diaries. I WILL NOT LIKE THIS. *watches 30 min of random episode*…. totally hooked! LOL ๐Ÿ™‚ I am a total sucker for anything super organized, that pantry is absolutely glorious!! My inlaws like Lucifer, but I have never watched it! XO – Alexandra

    I love those little sunglasses they’re so cute! Weather here in NY has been pretty good but this week has been cold and nasty so I’m not a fan. Lots of people really like Pretty Little Liars (and until recently I didn’t even know that the show is based on books) and I’ve seen a couple of episodes here and there but never watched the whole thing. I’m really liking the organization ideas, I’ve been trying to stay more organized.

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family May 8, 2017 at 11:43 pm

    Oooh that last pin is my fav! I love all the organization! ๐Ÿ™‚ And girl, my sister lives in Mobile and she said that they woke up this past Friday and walked out the door and had to turn around and go back in for jackets, ha!

  • Reply Elle sees May 10, 2017 at 8:24 am

    I am not organized at all–makeup is, but everything else is uh, around everywhere, haha. I secretly want everything all nice and neat like these pins. Ahhhh!
