Currently – October 2015

Time for another Currently post! I love writing these because it is nice to take a step back and look at what exactly is going on in my life at this moment in time.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Current book: I just finished reading Reconstructing Amelia. So good. I could not put it down.  I read half the book in one sitting while Lane and his family were watching the K-State vs. TCU football game. They had four hours of football, I had four hours of reading (and occasionally being startled when everyone started yelling at the TV).

Current music: The Weepies. It’s been a long time since I’ve listened to them but I can’t get enough right now! The World Spins Madly On and Can’t Go Back Now are my favorites!

Current [non]-guilty pleasure: Reading! Trying to read as many books from my reading list on Oyster before it goes away in December!

Part of my book list!

Part of my book list!

Current nail colour: This one on my toes, but I’m not really sure that I like it, it comes off almost black, which is fine, just not what I usually go for.

Nail Polish-1

Current drink: Hot water or hot tea with coconut oil in it. I know it sounds super weird but you don’t really get a ton of added flavor, but it smells so good and it feels like I have chapstick on my lips after I drink it!

Current food: Molasses cookies! My mom made some while my uncle was here and she’s since made two more trays of them. That may or may not be because of me.

Current obsession: Moisturizer. I don’t know if it is the up and down temperatures we’ve been having or wind or what but my skin is crazy dry lately and it is driving me nuts. Susan and I were talking about it the other day and she feels the same way, so at least I’m not alone!

Current wish: That the Royals beat the Astros! We will be planted in front of the TV tonight watching it!

Current triumph: My friend Kenda kicked major butt in her marathon! I know I’ve already talked about it on the Weekend Recap, but I am seriously so proud of her! The mental part of racing is (to me) so much harder than the physical part and she owned it!

Current TV Show: I’ll go with a new show this season, even though I’m loving that ALL the shows are back! I am really into Quantico! I love a show that makes me think that this one definitely fits the bill!

Current need: I’m pretty content right now, so I’ll go with nothing here.

Current bane of my existence: The Heat! Holy cow, it was in the 90s here on Sunday! It’s October! It’s Fall! Go away summer!

Heat October-1

Current indulgence: Lane and I are talking about going to NYC for our Christmas gift to each other this year. I’ve been to NYC over the holidays and love it. One of my favorite things about Christmas is the decorations and I’ve always talked about it so Lane wants to go visit. Fingers crossed that it happens!

Current procrastination:  Ugg. Laundry. That’s my project for this week.

Current blessing: My family. I’ve talked about how grateful I am for them lately, but when your parents let you move in with them, your uncle comes to help work on your house, your brother donates his time to the project, my sister texts me in the mornings to tell me to have a great day/week, my in-laws let Lane and I come and stay with them so we don’t have as long of a drive before the marathon, etc. We are pretty blessed.

Current excitement: We are going to have a main floor in our house soon! What!? Sometimes it seems like the process is crawling along but most of the time we stop by the house after work and are amazed at the progress. I’m so excited to share it with you guys!

Current mood: Happy! But a little bit of tiredness still in there too.

Pick one or all from the above and tell me about you and what you are currently up to!

  • I’m lovin the warm weather. I do like fall but winter is my enemy. And when it gets cool outside that means it’s going to be super cold soon. Not fun.

  • YAY! I love this, Sarah! I may have to “borrow” your idea soon; this is fun. I’m currently reading City on Fire; it’s around 900 pages, so it’s a long one, but I’ve enjoyed it. You’re not alone with the dry skin phenomenon; once our humidity finally gets below 80%, my lips immediately have a chapped feeling and my skin feels dry. I am using ALL the lotion – ha! Any new lip balm recommendations? Um, sadly, I cannot get on board with your baseball choice; you know I’m from southeast Texas, right? Some of my fondest memories include Astros games!! I’m so excited to hear about the house; it’s moving along quickly and I’m so glad. Hope you have a great day!

    • You should definitely do it! I hope you’re doing a recap on City on Fire, I may end up having to add it to my list! I’m sorry you’re dealing with the dry skin too, it is no fun! We will have to agree to disagree on our teams, but I like Royals for the same reason you like the Astros! 🙂

  • yup, im doing this. good to focus on the currents and present moment! That cookie looks SO good. and I loooove Chuck Klosterman! Some of his books were a little eh for me, but overall I think he is such a great author.

    • I have NEVER watched Survivor! I can’t even tell you what the premise behind the show is! Quantico is good! I’m so glad others are enjoying it too!

  • I love Quantico. I currently am pretty content as well. I need to dust so bad, it is like my cat leaves hair everywhere. Great post thanks

  • Ugh I have the same bane of my existence! Why is it not cooler outside??? I’ve been so obsessed with Parks and Recreation that my reading has been lacking these days. I really need to catch up on all of my books! I still haven’t finished Once a Runner!

    • I know! It is the middle of October and I’m still dying from the heat! I’m kind of afraid to start Parks and Rec because I won’t get anything else done!

  • Totally late commenting…new follower…but just had to say that when my husband first put a Weepies song on a CD he gave me (we are old school sometimes… :>), I thought they were the *Wimpies*. Ha. I still laugh about that when I hear their songs! Loving your blog by the way – need to catch up!
