// Saw this beauty while vintage shopping last week.
Current Book(s) >> I’m not reading anything right now. That needs to stop. I’m usually up really late working on projects for clients, and Michael goes to bed long before I do. Once I make it to bed, I play on my phone under the covers (so the light doesn’t wake Michael) until I fall asleep. I need a new case for my Kindle, one that has a light so as not to disturb Michael and his 9pm sharp bedtime. Yes, these are real problems.
Current Playlist >> I’m so boring. I could really listen to The Eagles station on Pandora all day every day. Wait, that makes me awesome, not boring. If I want to change things up, I listen to the Lori McKenna station. And I listen to the Pop Workout (or whatever it’s called) station while I’m running. What? Call Me Maybe is awesome to dance-run to. Oh, you’ve never seen anyone dance-run? Well, it’s like running, except every so often, you break out into a few small dance moves, and then you keep running like, NBD. And people are all, Did she get stung by a bee? And I’m all, Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but I just like to dance while I run sometimes, don’t call me kthxbye.
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure >> Last night, I actually hid Oreos in a napkin and snuck them to the bedroom so I could eat them in peace. I totally had enough calories leftover for the day to eat them, but I told Michael to help me stay accountable to the #cbdiet, and now I wish I hadn’t, because he’s all HOW MANY OREOS DO YOU HAVE IN THAT NAPKIN? And I’m all, WHAT NAPKIN? as I’m shoving 5 Oreos into my mouth at one time. I’m so good at healthiness.
Current Color >> OPI Atomic Orange — on my toes. Love it.
Current Drink >> Gold Peak Diet Iced Tea is so good and doesn’t even taste diet. I mean, I know it has aspartame and isn’t that stuff supposed to give you memory loss or something? What were we talking about again?
Current Food >> Everything Michael cooks, because it means I didn’t have to cook. He even cleans up when he’s done! Maybe Magic Mike does it for you, but walking into the house to a delicious dinner and not having to lift a finger (except the one holding my fork from my plate to my mouth)? It’s pretty damn sexy. Wait, were we talking about food? Sorry.
Current Favorite Show >> I’ve been DVR-ing Will & Grace like a madwoman. I think I have 45 episodes saved and I watch at least 2 per day. Michael keeps telling me to delete them to clear up space on the DVR and then I point out the fact that he has eleventy billion episodes of THE TURTLEMAN SHOW (I know that’s not the name of the show but I can’t remember that actual name and who actually cares anyway) and CAJUN PAWN STARS (Lord have mercy) and whatever other awful shows they are putting out about hillbillies from the swamp these days. And then he leaves me alone.
Current Wishlist >> I guess a new Kindle case. Oh, and a new wardrobe. I refuse to buy new clothes until I lose some weight…but once I lost the weight, my old clothes should fit. So really, I just need to borrow some clothes for a couple of months. Anyone?
Current Needs >> To get on a better sleep schedule. I’ve been staying up way too late and having mad cases of insomnia. I’ve taken Unisom a couple of nights, but I hate the thought of having to take something every night. When I stay up too late, I don’t get a great start in the morning and it’s just a slow day from then on.
Current Triumphs >> Running my first mile in 9 minutes on Monday. I know it’s not lightning fast or anything, but for me, it’s a huge accomplishment. I even threw an extra dance move into my dance-run. Stop looking at me like that.
Current Bane(s) of my Existence >> People who don’t understand that the coffee shop is like a library and people are trying to work/study/read/etc. If you want to have a loud conversation on your phone or with a friend, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. I heard Burger King is great for yell-y people.
Current Celebrity Crush >> Every character on Will and Grace, specifically Karen. No wait, Will. No wait, Grace. OKAY ALL OF THEM.
Current Indulgence >> Well, secret napkin full of Oreos aside, I really love my time in the morning with my breakfast + coffee + 1 episode of Will & Grace. Am I getting repetitive with my likes here?
Current #1 Blessing >> Despite everything that’s happened this summer — a huge move, strained finances, anxiety to the max — I’m happy to be where I am right now. I’m in a great city with a wonderful man. I live in a yellow house with a front porch swing within walking distance of a place that sells po’ boys and sno-cones. Life is good.
Current Slang or Saying >> Oh, I don’t know. No, that’s not the slang or saying. Like, I really don’t know. Obviously I need more slangs and sayings in my life.
Current Outfit >> Reebok workout capris that a friend gave me in college, a tank top, and flip-flops. I’m very glamorous, didn’t you know?
Current Excitement >> We’re going on a mini-vacation very soon! I’m excited. It will only be for a few days, but I’m looking forward to getting away. I plan to unplug (as much as possible anyway) and relax. More on this later.
Current Mood >> Busy. Lots going on! Excited about our trip. Hungry. Always hungry. Is hungry a mood? Gimme all the foods.
