about me, currently


Hey there Friday Eve!!!

Right now I am currently…

Reading: Before We Met – I picked up this gem at the thrift store for $0.49! Heck yes! I am only two chapters in but they describe this book as the British Gone Girl. I haven’t read that one yet either…


Watching: We have been binging on Chicago PD. Love this show!!! They have done two crossover episodes with SVU and two with Chicago Fire, so it is pretty cool to see the characters interacting between those casts. We finished up season 1 last night.

Listening to: I have been listening to my country play list a lot this past week when I am not listening to Podcast. Speaking of podcasts, anyone else listen to Disclosed this week for Jay’s Day? Crazy, huh?!?!?!

Wearing: The crap out of all my spring/summer dresses and my denim jacket!We have been in the 80’s and 90’s around these parts lately and it has been fabulous. Enjoying it every second I can before it gets too hot.

Lusting: Some new work out gear. I have been wearing the same few outfits for the last two years. They are starting to get worn out pretty bad!

Discover Stylish Fitness Apparel & Gear at prices up to 70% Off! Everything you need to feel and look your best while working out! At zulily you'll find something special every day of the week!

Wishing: Chris a very Happy Birthday!!! Today is his birthday, the fifth one that we are spending together. I wake up every day blessed to be by his side. We have been through so much the last five years, me moving out here, buying our first home, getting married, adding another dog to our family. He makes me laugh every day!








about me, currently



Listening – A shit ton of podcasts!!! (I am so accurate with measurements, right?) I have been soaking up podcasts every time I get in the car. It really makes my commute enjoyable. I caught up with Being Boss and have started on The Lively Show and Undisclosed. If you loved Serial, you need to check out Undisclosed!

Reading – Promises to Keep by Jane Green. I am a little more than half way through this book. I don’t love it as much as The Beach House but it is still a good read.

Watching – We watched Revenge the other night. It seems like they had tied up a lot of things. I wonder if this is the last season? We also watched Scandal…OMG! I wont share spoilers but if you have seen it, WTF?!

Looking Forward – Laura and I are meeting up for lunch today and tonight after work we are going to GBHS to play with dogs. There is something so therapeutic about going there and taking the dogs out in the play yard. It really is one of the highlights of my week.

Lusting – I tried this dress on last weekend at Loft but it was $104. I was like ummm no. Not for a dress. It is on sale now…ahhhhhh

Planning – Spending Saturday celebrating our five year old nephew’s birthday!

Working on- I saw some SUPER cute office stuff last weekend when I was out with my mom. I have some ideas swimming around in this brain of mine of what I want to do with my office space. Finally.

I did a currently post a few weeks ago, and I really enjoyed writing it and thought maybe it needs to be a more regular thing!

Listening – I am still really enjoying the Totally Married Podcast. I will start episode 13 today on my way to work, so to say I have been binging would be correct! I also listen to Call Your Girlfriend and Birmingham Life when they have new ones as well.

Reading – I am in the home stretch with the last book of the Stephanie Plum series. I talked about it a little on Tuesday if you are curious. I read an US weekly last night while cooking dinner and I have a Self and Shape to catch up on too!

Watching – We watched Pretty Little Liars and The Mindy Project last night after work. Once again, we learned nothing in PLL and I fell asleep half way through The Mindy Project because I was just so tired and wiped out! Chris did too, so I am hoping we can revisit it later.

Drinking – I have had a peanut butter protein smoothie every day for breakfast the last three weeks. They manage to keep me fuller for longer over any other breakfast for me.

Wishing – I could wear flip flops today!

Needing – Clothes!!! I feel like I have no transitional pieces in my closet. It has been pretty warm this week and I have been hot in my office every day in my winter clothes.

Loving – This quote!

It's not who you are that hold you back, it's who you think you're not.

Excited – Saturday is going to be so busy, but a lot of fun! We are going to Eat Drink Birmingham in the afternoon. The event features all you can eat food with beer pairings featuring local restaurants and breweries! They are discounting advanced tickets, so be sure to grab some if you are in the area!!!

Also, our friend Stephen, aka DJ Kontrol, is coming to town this weekend from Vegas to DJ at Skky on Saturday night!

DJ Kontrol

We used to hang out with Stephen a lot when he lived in Atlanta and it is going to be great to see him! Which brings me to the question, what are the bitches wearing to the clubs these days? I haven’t stepped foot inside one in years…






Listening – Serial. I am almost done! I started episode 8 yesterday on my way to work.

Reading -I am half way through the 20th book of the Stephanie Plum series! I can not believe I have read 20 books in one series. Especially since I had no intentions of going past the first one. Such a great series and I don’t know how I am going to feel when I finally catch up with the 21st book and have no more to go! Am I the only one who gets sad when a series is over and you have to leave those characters? At 20, I am pretty invested.

Watching – Last night we watched Tosh.O, The Mindy Project, The Originals and Pretty Little Liars. Is anyone still watching PLL??? I have something that I need to discuss immediately!!!

Loving – The fact that I have a girls night with my favorite blogger turned real life friends tonight! Also that I have a niece and a nephew who are doing exceptionally well in school! They are all doing well, but especially these two!

Working on – I still have some changes that I need to do to the MCB website. I need to work on my creative goals for this month. I knew going in that it was going to be a rough go at them. I am also working on getting over my fitness frustration and plowing through. I showed up and worked hard this morning despite my anger yesterday.

Anticipating- The Wild South Brewfest this weekend. Chris and I got to attend last year with some good friends and it looks as if we will be doing the same on Saturday. It is such a great cause and it was a lot of fun last year!

Guilty Pleasure – Grabbing a piece or two of the chocolate that Chris got me for Valentines last weekend.

Current Outfit – Anything warm! It was 12 degrees when I woke up this morning! Even for this winter loving Yankee, that is a bit chilly!

What have you been up to currently?

I haven’t done a currently post in awhile and that is a shame! I always love reading currently posts because it gives you lots of little snippets. So here we go!

Currently listening to: Enya – Only Time – Perhaps it is the rainy weather or the cooler weather, but this song brings calmness to me.

Currently reading: Fearless Fourteen – the 14th book in the Stephanie Plum series. I should be done with this book by the end of the week. Or tomorrow. 🙂

Currently coveting: I really want some booties. I have none! How is that even possible?! There is a pair that I am absolutely in love with at Nordstrom Rack. They are Michael Kors and they are fabulous! However, they are a bit pricey and I found two pairs at Target that would do the trick! Ok, there are three pairs that I want. (They are having a sale right now!!! Click the picture for the link.)

Currently excited for: Disney on Ice with my nephew’s class! Just a few more weeks. I need to find my princess attire, obviously!

Also, cooler weather! We had some strong storms roll through here last night and after the rain clears out today, it is supposed to be cooler! Give me all the sweaters!

And the fact that my face is finally calming the efffff down. I will be sharing my new skin care routine in another week or two when I can verify that it is indeed working great. Which, it looks that way!

Currently drinking: Archer Farms House Blend k-cup with Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer. Delicious!!! And way less calories and money than the PSL.

Currently surprised by: The fact that I drank black coffee while in Orlando last week. Like, who am I? And I actually enjoyed it!

Currently thinking about: Which phone I want. Still. Yes, every decision I make, I treat like a life altering decision. Don’t think I took the selection of booties to covet lightly up there. I have been to Target three times to look at them and try them on. Ridiculous, right?

Work Decisions

Also, how is it mid October already?! Like, seriously??? Our two year anniversary is coming up. My trip to Houston for my friends wedding is just around the corner. Thanksgiving and Black Friday are just a little over a month away! That is just crazy talk! Maybe once this cooler weather comes, it will feel more like fall.
