Linking up with my girl Kristen for another Currently!

Reading – I should be receiving a copy of RS Grey’s new book in my inbox today!!! *squeals* It will be out August 9th, and you can pre-order a copy now! That means I will be dropping my current read like a bad boyfriend. I am  having a hard time getting in to Surprise Me anyways. RS Grey is one of my favorite authors, her books always make me LOL.

Not So Nice Guy

Listening – After hearing about a million different versions of Zombie during Tomorrowland the last few weeks….my obsession with it is back! I mean, the 90’s was the best time for music. You can’t argue that fact. It’s science.


Watching – We have been basically binging on Blue Bloods every chance that we can. I think we both agree that it is our favorite cop show now. The one liners are epic and we really like the old man (Henry).

Cooking – On the menu this week is buffalo chicken sausage with parmesan squash risotto, korean beef and fried rice, sriracha honey meatballs with sweet potato zoodles, chicken tenders with maple brussels and braised pork chops with sweet potatoes.

Purchasing – It was time to buy foundation, as I was scraping bottom on my Estee Lauder Double Wear for a few weeks now and wearing BB cream some days instead. (Rimmel is the best drugstore BB cream for me. It does actually cover a little and lasts most of the day for me.) I had gone to Sephora to walk around and see what was out there. I love my Double Wear, and it is one I keep coming back to. But sometimes a girl just wants something new. I had considered the new Beauty Blender foundation, but I didn’t see it in store. Honestly, I feel like the packaging on it looked gimmicky anyways. Like you wouldn’t be able to use every last drop of the product, and I am not about that life. A sales person noticed I was wondering around aimlessly and hooked me up with a makeup artist who suggested Dior Skin Forever Perfect Foundation with SPF 35. I think I am in love! First of all, SPF 35? Yes, please! The color match is perfection on my skin (I am 020 for reference) and it is a full coverage foundation that feels a little lighter than the Double Wear. Which in this heat and humidity, I can certainly appreciate. When I went to wash my face last night, it looked like I had just did my makeup. So the staying power is strong. There was no creasing or clinging to any of my dry spots. Dare I say this might be my new holy grail? I will check back in and let you know.

Working – On my fitness. I have worked out every weekday the last three weeks. I even dusted off the treadmill in the garage and have been sweating it out a few times this week in the heat, on a super high incline. It feels great to be hitting my move goal every day on my watch and you know…those endorphins.

Planning – I am hoping to tackle our guest room and garage this weekend. Everything needs to go! I plan to be like this….

Excited – It is the second best month of the year!! MY BIRTHDAY MONTH! (December took over as my favorite, since that is the  month Zoe was born AND you know..Christmas and all.) You guys…I am going to be 35 this year! I quit being sad about this number though. Honestly, my 30’s have been WAY better than my 20’s and I am excited to see what this year will bring.

Quoting –

    That meme about life & this is what we’re doing – SOOOO ME!!!!!
    I am so jealous of everyone getting the RS Grey book!!! I gotta go preorder it. I had to chuckle that you just cant get through Surprise Me. I hit that lull in it too but the last few chapters do make up for it 🙂

YUM

    I won a copy of Surprise Me, but it wasn’t grabbing my attention either. All those things you’re cooking sound delicious. I’ve been seriously lazy with cooking in the last month, and the heat doesn’t make it any easier! I’m going to be 35 this year too but no complaints here, the 30’s have definitely been better than my 20s! Happy birthday month!

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag August 2, 2018 at 11:54 am

    HAH! Love that first “funny” – sometimes life really is like that. Happy Birthday month! I hope you have a lot of great celebrations. 🙂 Oh gosh, I’m so in awe of you working out like a champ. That’s awesome. I really need to get back into some sort of routine…I have been doing tappercize (it’s a tap class basically lol) once a week for a couple weeks, but it ends already next Monday (short summer class) so I need to figure out other ways – and more ways – to get moving!

    That risotto looks so good! Way to go with keeping up with the workouts. I always hear the hardest part is getting started and getting into a routine. I know I’m going to have some work to do after baby boy gets here. Sierra Beautifully Candid

    Hahaha I love that quote about not knowing what’s happening in your own life. I usually feel that way!! Your menu for the week has me hungry! I have been so bad with meal planning while Nick’s been deployed. I really thought I would cook a few times per week and just eat leftovers but I get so sick of eating the same thing over and over. I can’t wait for him to get home for many reasons but it will be so nice to get back into a schedule for meals.

  • Reply Kay R August 2, 2018 at 12:34 pm

    Your menu for the week sounds delicious! Was the RS Grey on Netgalley? If so I’m off to request it!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders August 2, 2018 at 1:34 pm

    Way to go on getting a workout in every day! I seriously don’t know how you do it! I just started working out again and it’s awesome, and walking on incline basically just kicks your ass! So I’ve never watched Blue Bloods before, but I feel like it’d be a show that I’d love! I watch way more cop shows than you’d probably care to know about.

  • Reply Lauren August 2, 2018 at 2:03 pm

    Omg that quote about the little girl brought tears to my eyes! #emotionalmama

  • Reply Audrey August 2, 2018 at 3:10 pm

    Those memes all feel about right. Apparently I’ve been saying, “Oh my garsh” a lot and my coworkers have taken notice. It’s that or “what the fuck.” Take your pick, guys.
    Good luck with the garage this weekend! I’m so jealous that I missed the R.S. Grey boat!!! Ahh!!

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine August 2, 2018 at 4:34 pm

    35 is going to be sooooo good! So I told my son to stick with Blue Bloods and he’s now in season 2 and loving it! Working out on fleek….woohoo!

  • Reply Amy Getz August 2, 2018 at 5:08 pm

    Girl – high five on the workouts and meal planning! Impressive! I love a good clean out project . . . when I’m feeling out of sorts, organizing an area and tamp down the crazy! Just know that I lurk but don’t often comment. Glad you’re all doing well! 🙂

    that bedtime meme is 100% FACTS lol. yay for the workouts!! now that my side gym is 7mins away from me (i’m low-key cheating on my gym yikes!) i can workout more during the week!

  • Reply SMD August 2, 2018 at 7:48 pm

    Birthday month!

    I’ve been listening to a lot of 90s music, (Linger over Zombie though any day for me).

    Great job on the fitness! You’re rocking it!

  • Reply Carly August 3, 2018 at 9:32 am

    I get the same way with foundation! Even though the Smashbox one I use is amazing and works really well for me, every once in a while I feel like I want to try something different. The one you got sounds really nice & it’s the best when you can find a perfect color match! Good luck with all the cleaning/purging this weekend! I need to go through my closet but keep putting it off. YAY for your birthday month!

  • Reply Missy @MySh!ttyKitchen August 3, 2018 at 11:13 am

    MMM sign me up for risotto and buffalo chicken sausage! Turning 35 is a great age! The thirties really are so much better than the 20’s. Awesome on the exercise, keep up the good work! Have a fantastic weekend.

  • Reply Danielle August 6, 2018 at 12:47 pm

    Yay for August babies! And welcome to the 35 club (soon)! That risotto looks soooo yummy!

  • Reply Laura August 6, 2018 at 3:39 pm

    Love Zombie!!!!!! As you know that already — I want your dinners. You and Chris always eating such yummy dinners. And hooray for you working out all the time!!!

  • Reply Emelia Lawrence August 6, 2018 at 7:53 pm

    YAY birthday month is the best. I’m with you- my 30’s have been way better. Bring it on! I’ve also been on the treadmill. We bought one a little over a week ago and I’m getting in to it. It feels good to get some exercising in. Your buffalo chicken sausage sounds good, need to try that!

  • Reply chelsea jacobs August 8, 2018 at 5:10 am

    um your menu sounds AMAZING! also I need to print out copies of “row your boat away from me” and just hand them out.

  • Reply Biana August 8, 2018 at 3:07 pm

    I love RS grey and I’m so happy to hear she has a new book coming out tomorrow!! Those higher end foundations are amazing, I haven’t tried Dior’s foundation but I can only imagine how wonderful it is. Parmesean squash risotto – that sounds incredible! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston

  • Reply Kate August 8, 2018 at 8:13 pm

    WHOO HOO yeahhhh birthday month! And SPF 35?! Yes please! Get it girl with all the workouts, and I’m totally inviting myself to your house for dinner all week <3
