Currently watching: Finishing up V’s sweater had me soaking up more television hours than I care to admit. I’ve found some great shows on Netflix that I probably never would have watched “on real television”. I find myself blushing or covering my eyes quite a bit while watching The Tudors but the storyline is amazing. Another new favorite is Orange is the New Black. Again, it can be a little graphic at times (a lot of times) but it’s both funny and heartbreaking and at the end of every episode I want to watch more (which isn’t always great for my bedtime). And finally, I’m watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer from the beginning in it’s entirety. I should be ashamed, instead I’m just loving Buffy Summers and Netflix for bringing each and every episode (like the one when Angel first turns…).
Current healthy living goal: I’ve unfortunately stopped a good majority of my better habits and really need to start getting back into the swing of things. With school starting, I don’t want to put on tons of pressure but I have started with some doable goals. This month, I want to wear my UP band, drink 100oz of water daily, and take a walk each day (even if it’s just around the block).
Currently eating: This. Is. Amazing. I’ve never been a big salmon eater and my husband swears he hates it but I wanted to give it a try (I figure if I make my kids try foods they think they don’t like, it’s only fair that I do the same) and this recipe seemed a great place to start. My husband said he’d eat it again, I loved it, and even my daughter tried it. The accompanying cabbage salad is just scrumptious and would be great just on it’s own.
Currently listening: After all the hype around the Civil Wars album I was a bit nervous to purchase it. I shouldn’t have been. It’s been the soundtrack to our life ever since I downloaded it. I also recently learned about Little Comets and I’m loving them. I think iTunes is one of the greatest inventions ever. Accessing good music is so easy.
Current blog loves: I’ve loved Karen Russell for a very long time. In fact, she was one of the very first bloggers I ever started reading. This post touched my heart and I think it might touch yours too. If it does and you can help, I hope you will. This also resonated like a tuning fork in my heart. I want this in my neighborhood – for me and for my kids. And such a simple idea.
Currently knitting: I’ve finished V’s sweater and I’ve started on A’s. While on getaway with The Mister, I found an amazing yarn shop where I picked up a pattern and the yarn for a super cute blanket that I’m going to knit up for my eagerly awaited nephew.
Currently loving: Naps and the lazy days leading up to school starting. Lego towers. Getaways with a wonderful husband. Dresses and air conditioning and pool days – summer has reared her ugly head and she is HOT. Simple things – a cup of coffee, a note from a friend, the sound of the sprinklers.
