Currently – June 2016

Time for our monthly currently post for June! There are so many things to be thankful for right now. After seeing so many negative things happening in the world, it was easy for me to appreciate all the good things that I have in my life. Try to think of all the good things in your life and spread more love. There can never be too much love!

Current book: #GIRLBOSS. It’s actually pretty good. I wouldn’t say there is any life changing information that I’ve read so far, but I do like her emphasis on hard work and financial responsibility and that you don’t just deserve things without working for them.

Current music: I haven’t really been listening to much of anything lately so I have no new songs to tell you about.

Current [non]-guilty pleasure: Views like the one above. We’ve had some really beautiful skies recently and it is something that I’ll never get enough of.

Current nail color: I tend to gravitate towards pinks and other bright colors in the summer, so pink it is! OPI Nail Color in Strawberry Margarita.

Nail Polish-1

Current drink: Ice water! I know, who am I? I can’t drink it without a straw, but it’s been so hot out that I need something cold, especially in the afternoon.

Ice Water-1

Current food: Pasta. I’ve been craving any kind of pasta lately. Mac and cheese, tortellini, spaghetti, etc.

Current obsession: Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Trader Joes. I told Lane we need to get to a TJs again soon because I only have four left. Seriously, they are so good!

TJs PB Cups-1

Edited to say that there are none left. We are now in crisis mode.

Current craving: Ice cream cones and/or milkshakes. I don’t know what the deal is lately but every weekend (and sometimes during the week) I tell Lane that I need an ice cream cone.

Current need: I really like my Saucony Triumph shoes, but I’m not as in love with them as I was my Asics Nimbus, so I’m considering trying the Brooks Launch next. I’m still not in the market for new shoes quite yet, but since they haven’t made any considerable chances to the Nimbus yet (I didn’t like the changes they made to the 17s and 18s) so I think I’m still looking for something new.

Current bane of my existence: Our house. I’m so excited about it but I am so ready to not have every day be consumed by decisions and projects. I’m so excited to be in the house and get back to “normal” life!

Current indulgence: Um, said ice cream cones. I’ve been eating pretty well lately and even though I haven’t been getting in regular workouts, we get in alot of physical activity during the day, so I don’t feel guilty about the occasional cone.

Current procrastination: Working out. With so much stuff going on lately, I am not getting in workouts like I’m used to and I miss it. I need to start getting up in the morning so I can at least get in a short workout most days.

Current confession: I’m canceling more magazine subscriptions. I think the only ones that I’m going to keep are Runner’s World and Bon Appetit. I get so frustrated reading things in Women’s Health and Shape (and others) about how our bodies should look and how to get “inner peace and a tight butt.” I feel like I keep getting told that I need great arms, and abs and a tight butt and, and, and…and mostly I’m just tired of it.


Current quote/meme/gif: Since I’ve been craving ice cream so much lately, this made me laugh. Also, anytime I tell Lane I want a milkshake, we end up singing the song.

Current excitement: We are going to Angel Fire, NM for 4th of July weekend! It will be nice to get out of town for a few days – especially somewhere much cooler than Kansas!

Current mood: Overall happy. A little stressed, a little tired, but overall pretty happy.

Pick a few of the above and tell me what is currently going on in your life!

  • WHOA! New Mexico?!! That sounds awesome! I can’t wait to see your pics and hear about it, Sarah; what a treat! Also, I’m totally with you on the ridiculous magazine articles/suggestions that all seem to suggest that we are just a fill-in-the-blank away from something wonderful. Whatever. I’m currently reading First Comes Love by Emily Giffin and listening to Shrill by Lindy West on audio; I’m enjoying them both!

    • Yup, back to New Mexico, it seems like the only place I’ve been this year! It should be fun though! The magazine articles drive me crazy, I think that’s part of the reason why my magazines stack up, I just don’t get excited to read the same stuff every month. I’m excited for First Comes Love, is it different from The One and Only? I didn’t care for that one, but I’ve loved her other books! I’m also glad to know I’m not the only one who reads more than one book at at time! 🙂

  • I am a magazine junkie, but had to stop all my subscriptions to magazines like Shape, Fitness ext because they were more aggravating than helpful! I still get Runner’s world and Women’s running. 🙂

    • I’m with you! I do still look forward to reading Runner’s World and I have occasionally bought Women’s Running when there’s something (or someone) good on the cover! Have a great weekend Melissa!
