Hi there! How’s your Thursday going?
August is almost over, and I’m not exactly sad. Summer just isn’t the same when you work year-round!
Anyway, I thought I’d take a break from my melodramatic and/or psychoanalyzing deep thinking today and share what’s going on currently.
Currently // August 2017
Reading // Daring Greatly* — Brené Brown is basically my spirit animal and most favorite person ever, except I hate how she gets into my head and writes books specifically for me. 😀
Watching // Forged in Fire — so cool to watch the knife crafters at work! But we also recently finished a great show called Atypical about a teenager with high-functioning autism. Ozark was good, too — I’ve always loved Laura Linney and Jason Bateman was pretty good in this, too.
Listening to // The Head and the Heart. They were my favorite a couple years ago, and lately I’ve been feeling their early stuff.
Needing // To visit my aunt. She has cancer and is under hospice care, and I need to go spend some time with her and my cousins.
Loving // All the fun eclipse photos! We had about 80% coverage in my area so it was a little less exciting than I’d anticipated, but it was still fun to feel the temperature drop a few degrees and see it get a little darker. Plus I’m sexy stuff in my solar lenses — well, minus the random duck face and bright red complexion!
Not loving // How sore my legs are from the gym Tuesday night! Walking lunges are killer — but they are worth it, I guess!
Eating // Same old, same old (smoothies, sandwiches, etc.) — though I am still dreaming about our dinner from Dumbwaiter on the Hill this past weekend. The house-made pork rinds were interesting, but the crab beignets would be delicious right now.
Drinking // Sparkling mineral water, yo! I’m doing the Gerolsteiner #sparklingdetox again in September, and you can register yourself here and have a chance to win your own box of Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water. In case you were curious, I’m also a master at product placement — just ask my butt. 😉
Craving // Besides crab beignets, I guess some really good ice cream or a nectar cream vanilla snoball from NOLA.
Avoiding // Should I remove this question? I am not deliberately avoiding anything, but I guess I’m always sort of procrastinating housework (because chores suck). After having a run-in with a huge spider next to my bare feet, I’m actively avoiding arachnids. Whyyyyy are they so damn scary?!
Happy about // Having ANOTHER massage scheduled for this weekend. I finally used my gift card several weeks ago, and like the pushover that I am, I let them convince me to sign up for a 3-month membership. Time to get my #selfcare on!
Looking forward to // BEACH TRIP!!!! I have a feeling we will need a vacation from our vacation when it’s all over (6 adults + 4 kids = at least we outnumber them!) but I can’t wait to enjoy some (hopefully) beautiful weather, good food, GREAT friends, and fun in the sun. And I am so excited to take this baby* for a dip in the Gulf.
