Every time I post a currently list, I check back in the archives and make sure it’s been a while since I made one. And I pray you’re not sitting at home going, Gaaaaaaah, there she goes again with another one of those fill in the blank posts. But the thing is, I love them. Thus, your next installment. Enjoy!
Also, my selfie game is spot on here, IMO.
Also 60% of this list is related to television. Just so you know where I’m coming from right now.
Making: serious decisions when it comes to our soon-to-be kitchen. I gave a lovely woman named Kellie this pin, and told her to go crazy.
Cooking: nothing; but I’m baking up a storm. Stay tuned right here, dear readers.
Drinking: champagne sangria soon, I hope
Reading: Being Mortal, because Elise and Joanna told me to.
Wanting: to spend some time beating butter, flour, sugar, and eggs together tomorrow.
Looking: into heading up to NYC for a summer class with a coworker. Any excuse to live there for the week…
Playing: with a new toy I got for work.
Deciding: whether or not to invest in new jeans
Wishing: I could snap my fingers and clean my room, a la my hero.
Enjoying: my simple weeknight routine: barre, dinner, TV, bed.
Waiting: a couple more weeks for SCL’s birthday extravaganza. She wants me to make something with cream cheese frosting. Any ideas, dear readers?
Liking: The amount of (kitchen-related) storage space our new house will have. Is it possible that there will be a home for all of my…ahem…things?
Wondering: whether this snow will be plowed in time for me to sneak off to a movie (who wants to guess which one?).
Loving: Pure Barre. I go three or four times a week, and I can do push ups for real (for probably the first time ever), and it’s amazing.
Pondering: the amount of brain space I need to read. I have a much harder time sticking with a book when I have a swirl of other events going on in my life. But in the summer I can put one away each day. Go figure.
Considering: staying in bed all day.
Watching : Jane the Virgin, which my friend Kristen and I got into after Gina Rodriguez won the Golden Globe a couple of weeks ago. Also Mozart in the Jungle, John Adams, and New Girl.
Hoping: for snow days, while at the same time, not wanting snow to hold up our construction
Marveling: at my zen-like state over this renovation (she said as it had only just begun). I know deadlines will get pushed back. I know the weather will thwart our plans. And I know there is nothing I can do about it.
Needing: I can’t think of anything I need right now. What a fabulous feeling.
Smelling: Snow. It’s colder than cold, but I cracked the window to breathe in the snow anyway.
Wearing : all the new Beyond Yoga pants (which is such a surprising color choice for me) and my grey Anthro cardigan. I can’t get enough of them.
Following : I Have This Thing With Floors, We Never Met, and Reese Witherspoon on Instagram
Noticing: that it’s a rare morning when I wake up and don’t feel the need for coffee. I’m officially addicted.
Knowing: that belting out some of the world’s best ballads at the top of my lungs while driving up and down 95 is good for my health.
Thinking: about how much clutter I’ve amassed in this small space in which we’re currently entrenched.
Feeling: excited about the snow day ahead!
Admiring: people who enter into social settings with nothing but enthusiasm. Trying to be those people.
Sorting: Laundry. Always.
Buying : nothing! Trying super-hard not to spend anything right now.
Getting: a ton of books in on hold at the library. This one and this one, in particular.
Bookmarking: kitchens! Lots of them. On Houzz. Which I don’t find as fun as Pinterest.
Disliking: that I completely forgot to tune into Gone With the Wind during TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar. Praying I don’t make the same mistake with To Kill a Mockingbird on the 18th.
Opening: valentines from all the little people in my life
Giggling: over SNL40. I know there are a lot of haters, but it had its moments!
Snacking: on conversation hearts – but only the green and orange ones.
Coveting : cookbooks. I haven’t bought one since at least last May and there are so many I’m waiting to click purchase on as soon as our kitchen island becomes a reality (which will likely be this May).
Wishing: for a magical, and perhaps nonexistant amount of snow, that lets me off work for two days, but still allows me time to work out and drive around town.
Helping: plan a lunch for 80 this weekend. Wish me luck?
Hearing: The Simpsons on in the background here, while my husband gets ready for Better Call Saul. I’d tell you I watch it, but I really just glance up from the laptop in between violent scenes.
