A look into my life, currently:
Current book: The Amber Keeper by Freda Lightfoot
I’m only a couple chapters into this one, so I’m not quite sure about it yet, but based on the description I’m hoping it gets really interesting!
Current music: I just created an 80’s playlist on Spotify so I’ve been jamming out to that for the past week. It always makes me smile!
Current guilty pleasure: Halo Top ice cream! It’s soooo good and high in protein but low in calories! No, it’s not the same as ice cream, but I love it!
Current nail color: Smokin’ Hot by Essie. My friend texted me to see if I had this color and after I pulled it out I kept thinking, this could be cute! So that’s what I’m sporting this week!
Current drink: Regular hot coffee! It’s cooling off here in Chicago (or at the very least it’s freezing in my office) so I’m back to hot coffee instead of iced. Not quite the same… but it doesn’t leave me shivering at my desk
Current food: All the types of squash! Now that it’s fall, squash is back in season and back at Trader Joe’s! I love just chopping up squash and roasting it, or using spaghetti squash as a pasta alternative. So good!
Current wishlist: Fall clothing! I’ve been on a clothing purchase freeze, which shall continue indefinitely since I still seem to be struggling with my budget, but that doesn’t mean I can’t pin everything, right?
Current triumphs: Slowly getting back into running! I used to be quite a runner, even running the Chicago Marathon in 2012, but I took a looong break for a while there. I’m trying to get back into it, and now am hoping to run 2 times a week, then bump it up to 3. But I’ve been running 3 miles once a week and I love it!
Current blessing: I got to visit my best friend from college and her baby boy a few weekends ago and it was such an amazing blessing! Now when she sends me photos I’ve actually met him and know what he’s like! He is the happiest little baby!
Current excitement: My BIRTHDAY!!! Okay, it’s a few weeks off, but I’m going to Denver for my birthday to visit my BFF, Maddie, along with my brother, my sister-in-law, and MOOOOLLLLLYYYYYYY!!!!!!!
Current mood: Feeling pretty positive! I’ve been doing well with not putting so much pressure on myself this week, which has actually helped me be MORE productive.
Your turn! What’s going on “currently” with you?
