Wasn’t it just like…July 4th?? I know, I know…I feel like a broken record saying that every month but wow, I just can’t believe another one’s behind us! You know what that means…time for another monthly wrap-up aka “Currently” post!
It’s no secret that I’ve been a little MIA in the kitchen lately…truth be told I’ve just been feeling kinda lazy. How about we blame the summer heat? Honestly though, I’ve just had so much going on in my life lately that I don’t even realize I’m hungry until I’m HANGRY. Cereal for nearly every meal it is! So there may not be very many foodie pics in my library at the moment, but hey, I’ve got plenty of selfies and sunsets! 😀
I’m almost done with the Bride Quartet Series by Nora Roberts! I devoured the “make me wanna eat ALL THE FOODS” so I made a mad dash to the library before work last week to pick up the fourth and final book (see middle selfie above) annnnnd? I’m already halfway through it!
Yes, I’m STILL playing the Arctic Monkeys’ album on repeat. No I still can’t pick ONE favorite song.
Current Guilty Pleasure:
Actually, I feel guilty for not feeling guilty! Those coconut protein bars aren’t the only goodies I’ve been enjoying from my Nature Valley friends and you guys, I am totally smitten with these strawberry Greek yogurt bars! When when faced with anything yogurt-covered, I’m all like, “IN MY FAAAAACE!” but typically, those type of snacks aren’t very filling…hence the reason I can put down an entire bag of yogurt-covered pretzels in a minute. But these bars have a good amount of protein that leaves me satisfied for at least a couple of hours. And? It tastes like a friggin’ PB&J!!
Current Nail Color:
No comment. Stupid freaking nubs!
Seriously, WHY is this show so freaking addicting?! With only FOUR episodes left, I have to say this season is even better than the last!
An idea of what to buy my sister for her birthday…in EIGHT DAYS! 😯
Look! I can eat something other than cereal! I told you folks, the STACK is BACK! I’ve had a sandwich for dinner every day this week and nope, not getting tired of it! Also, I’m finally powering through the shitton of condiments I have in the fridge!
Making further strides in my journey with intuitive eating…specifically having wine AND chocolate all by myself WITHOUT feeling guilty about it.
Current Bane of Existence:
Remember how I told you my garage door was broken? Well how about I had a friend come over to try to help me fix it and we…BROKE IT EVEN MORE!? Yep, the damn thing’s been out of commission for over four months now! On the bright side, you should see my calves and hammies from making the trek up the driveway every damn day! 😉
Current Blogger Crush:
This one kinda snuck up on me…after stalking her on Instagram for MONTHS! At first I lurked in the shadows, but then the woman just had to go and post foodporn after foodporn during her trip to Chicago (I swear I gained 10 pounds just scrolling through)! After that, I noticed the balance of her feed…not all decadent sweets, but also savory nibbles, home-cooked meals, and some of the cutest little boys I’ve ever seen! So the other day, I finally took a cruise on over to her blog. And now, I am officially in love with Maegan, aka The Baker Mama. Or at least, at the moment I am…other times I’m wishing she’d adopt me or thinking about stealing her husband! Umm, sorry, Meagan!
But seriously, have you SEEN this Chicken Pesto Peach Panini? That baby has my name written all over it with the alliteration alone, but HELLO! Peaches…and pesto…and THAT CHEEEEEESE!
The best kind of indulgence is the kind you can feel GOOD about! You can’t beat a bowl of made-in-minutes all-natural flash frozen ice cream that won’t leave your (my) crazy lactose-challenged tummy in knots! I can’t get enough! And I’m already planning to another run to Freeze Pleeze tomorrow after the farmer’s market! Hmm, what should I get?
My mom. This woman has been with me through it all…always supporting me in any way that she can…at any time of day/night. She’s shown me what a true mother’s love should be and a couple of weeks ago, I finally had the chance to give her something she’s always wanted…and watched as her face lit up and stars danced in her eyes. And that? Well just typing that made me tear up. Love you, Mama!
I may or may not be on my back porch…in my PJ’s…sipping some coffee delicious almond cookie coffee and refusing to start my day until I can see the bottom of my cup. Ok, I totally am!
Does it show my age when I get THISFREAKINGEXCITED about couponing? Now I’m not going extreme couponer on you guys, but seriously, I went to the store the other day and along with these beauties (some of which are soon to be the players in my next cereal mixing adventure), I managed to rack up a TWENTY dollar savings on my total! I may or may not have done a little happy dance at the register! And yes, I realize that I’m only further fueling the cereal addiction. 😉
This Buzzfeed article had me laughing till I about peed my pants the other day!
Satisfied, sweaty, and shocked that I got this post done in less than 1000 words!
Are you incredibly indecisive?
What (or who) is your biggest blessing at the moment?
