CURRENTLY

Every few months I like to do an update on the things currently going on in my life. Here's an update since my last CURRENTLY, in May.


Reading...

chirp * chirp * chirp

Hear that? That's the sound of crickets. Know why you can hear them? Because I haven't picked up a book in months. Quite literally, I have not added any books to my list since my last update. My shame is strong, but honestly I've just been occupying my time other ways and I think that's ok sometimes.

Doing...
So instead of reading, I've been listening to a lot of The Quibbler podcast. I've really enjoyed getting back into the wizarding world and being reminded of the cool bits of those books I had forgotten about. I've also been following the Girls' Night In newsletter, which gets sent out every Friday, includes some great articles, suggestions of things to try/do, and other goodies specifically geared towards women who don't mind spending their weekends at home.
Also this summer, I painted several ceilings in our home, cleared out a lot of clutter, and signed up for grocery delivery. GUYS, that has become my favorite luxury. Shipt is the service I use, which shops at a couple stores near me. I make my grocery list, specifically adding the exact items (size, qty., brand, etc.) I want using their convenient app, select the time I want it delivered and ta-da! My shopping is done for the week! A professional shopper sends me a text if something I requested is out of stock and offers substitutions as needed. It's so convenient and makes it much easier to have healthy snacks in the house.

Watching...
My rewatch of Friends is nearly complete; I've just started the last season. It had been a couple of years since I watched it for the first time and it was enjoyed just as much as the first time. There just doesn't seem to be another 30 minute sitcom I can get into like I can that one. We have also made it through several more seasons of NCIS. Season 10 is halfway through and I'm starting to think it will be the end of next year before we will complete it. But that's okay. My love for Mark Harmon will continue that much longer.

Traveling...
This summer I was lucky enough to head up to Chicago multiple times for work and pleasure. I shared a post in June all about how to pack for a short business trip to Chicago in the summer. It was a great trip and I can't wait to get back up there soon. We have lots of travel plans for the autumn, so I'm currently keeping local to conserve energy for all those trips.

Wearing...
Slides have been on my feet nearly all summer. Dressier ones for the office, casual ones for the weekends, it doesn't seem to matter the occasion- I probably wore slides. Another repeat offender has been my black diamond initial pendant. I've been living in this because I know the quality will hold up in the humid summer heat and the chemical filled pool water. The dainty size makes it go with everything - whether it's layered with other necklaces or paired with some statement earrings.
