Currently I'm ...

What's New With You
Yes, I realize that I just wrote a "life lately" post last week and a "currently" post is basically the same idea. But I really wanted to link up with Kristen and Gretchen today, and, to be completely honest, I wasn't feeling any of the 20 blog posts I started before this one.

So I'll save those for another time, and talk about some completely random shit today.

Currently I'm:

Reading: The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards. This is my second book for Book Challenge by Erin 4.0, and I have several others from my list already checked out from the library. I think I'll probably go for Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson next.

Listening To: A lot of Radiohead.

Especially this:

And this:

Wishing: I had more time to do everything I want (and need) to do. Seriously ... 24 hours just isn't enough most days.

Spending: Less money in general. One of my New Year's resolutions for 2016 is to be more frugal, and I think I've been doing pretty well so far. I'm not on a spending freeze or anything, but I'm trying to be more aware of my spending habits in order to cut back on unnecessary expenses.

Trying: To avoid getting sick. Eric has been feverish and coughing his head off for the last couple of days, and I've basically been like this:

Thinking: That I should have chosen something less time consuming to make for work tomorrow. I have to bake a couple of pans of pasta tonight, and, while it isn't difficult, it takes time. (And yet I keep putting it off.)

Craving: Mediterranean food. Specifically falafel. And hummus. And kebabs. Yum.

Loving: That this weekend is going to be mostly free and relaxing. I have a Skype date with two of my girlfriends on Saturday, and I'm planning to work out Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But other than that? Totally free.

Planning: To spend some time reading, stalking checking out new blogs from this link-up, and working on some blog posts this weekend. (Obviously I give zero fucks about the Superbowl.)


  1. Stopping by from the linkup and you grabbed me right off the bat! Radiohead is my go-to when I don't know what to listen to. Love!
    I want to be more frugal this year too. I don't think my spending is crazy out of control or anything, but I'm definitely not frugal and I'd like to get a little closer to that end of the spectrum!
    I couldn't care less about the Super Bowl either :/

  2. YES can we please get more than 24 hours in a day?! Also, I'm trying to write some blog posts this weekend, too... but somehow I never manage to plan that far in advance - whoops! Good luck!! -- Lisa | Naptime Chai

  3. i saw on instagram i think that you were reading the memory keepers daughter and i know we already talked about this so i can't wait to hear your thoughts. wintergirls is on my list too, im hoping to read it this weekend.
    yes to Mediterranean food! yummmmmmm. my fave.
    i also give zero fucks about the super bowl. in fact, i'm 'working' another wedding show with my friend, can't wait haha. free cake!

    1. ps thanks for linking up with us girlfran! you're the best :)

  4. An additional six to eight hours a day would be awesome. Sunlight hours if possible. LOL

  5. I read The Memory Keeper's Daughter a few years ago, and I don't remember much about it but that I looooved it! Enjoy! And good luck not getting sick :)

  6. Love Currently posts! And thank you for joining up with us and writing this post 20 thats dedication!
