May 24, 2012


As you may or may not have noticed, I have been kinda blah in the blogging department so I wanted to use today to link up with one of my favorite blog ladies, Jenn, for some Currently Thursday action.
current book(s):
Fifty Shades Freed.
I must say, I'm not as into it as I was with, say, the first book but at this point I have to see the trilogy out, right?  I don't know I feel like it's kinda lost its mojo and I'm more or less skimming past all the sex scenes and if I have to read the word "sex" in reference to vagina one more time I may scream.  Just sayin'.  
current playlist
I'm totes lame in this department.  I have no playlists, at all.  Like the only music on my phone is running music and I don't even run anymore.  I do love me some country music in the summer and pretty much only in the summer.  Right now I'm loving loving loving Zac Brown Band- Keep Me In Mind. Pretty much love everything about ZBB and kick myself for not seeing them when they were in Columbus last year.
current color
Hot pink.  For sure.
As you read and saw on Tuesdays post, I got a pair of hot pink shorts this week and I AM IN LOVE with them.  I thought I was going to be this big dork in hot pink booty shorts and when I put those babies on I felt like a million bucks!  LOVE them!  Get a pair.  NOW!
current food
Love love love me some cookout food.  I think that's one of my favorite things about summer, the food! Probably not so much a good thing for my waistline but damn it's worth it!  I love it all too, corn on the cob, burgers, potato salad, hot dogs, fruit salad, baked beans, you name it.
current favorite show(s)
Well seeing as all the shows are going on summer vaca that really only leaves me with trashy reality TV.
Big Brother is my all time #1 show every summer.  I'm addicted.  Love it, can't wait for it, hope it doesn't disappoint this year.  It never does, really.
current needs
Bedroom Furniture.
This is the set I'm looking to get but it's coming up with the cash money to do so.  So this will be a slow work in progress but is definitely my #1 need.
current triumphs
A hummingbird was caught in our sun room on Tuesday.  It was making me so sad because it was just trying and trying so hard but could not figure out how to get down low enough to fly out the door. My smarts kicked in and I got a broom and somehow managed to have it land on the broom while I very carefully, slowly and steadily lowered it out the door.  VICTORY! Shannon saves the day!  I was so damn proud I wished I had it on video!
current banes of my existence
One word, Dora.
Look I can appreciate the fact that she does teach my child things, the other day she was literally trying her hardest to say "amarillo" this week, but for the love!  Why does she have to SCREAM about everything?  Nothing makes my skin crawl like "WHERE ARE WE GOING?!" a million times over.  For the love!
current celebrity crush
Enough said.
current #1 blessing
I mean, I think it goes without saying that Kendall Paige is, and always will be, my #1 blessing.  This week has been an especially good mommy/daughter week.  She's really learning so much right now and every day she impresses me with something new that she knows! I've been saying, "how do you know that?!" all too much this week. Makes me realize that maybe I do know what I'm doing with this mommy thing.
current indulgence
Mocha Coconut Frappuccino.
Ana has been talking about these since last summer so I finally caved.  Coconut isn't usually my thing, unless it's in a Samoa Girl Scout Cookie, but I figured I'd give it a go.  It was delish, I can't deny, but at a whopping 410 calories I think I'll stick to my skinny caramel macchiato from now on.
current outfit
From Sunday {soon to be sister-in-laws bridal shower} because you don't want to see what I'm currently sporting.

current excitement
This is MAJOR people. I cannot and will not contain my excitement.  This girl {and that handsome fellla} is coming to visit me in 7 weeks.
 Be prepared for lots of annoying, exciting, screaming posts about this for a long long time.
current mood
Normal. I don't know. I feel like I do every day.  It's going to be a nice, warm, summer day so that make me happy.  Happy it is.
current favorite quote or verse
Ever since my senior year in high school it has been a quote one of my favorite teachers used to say when we'd leave class, "Go To Your Destiny".
current wishlist item
Besides bedroom furniture?  Hmm...
Because, why not, right?
current favorite product
Glimmersticks, hands down.
I get so many compliments on my eyeliner, how perfect it looks, how it seems to last forever {because it does} and how smooth it is and I owe it all to this stuff.  I have to say I have sold lots and not heard one single complaint on this item. Nothing but love!



  1. I do NOT miss the days that I had to watch Dora. Nannying has its perks, but the TV was not one of them! So happy that you and Kristen finally get to meet!

  2. Love Adam, love ZBB and keep me in mind is probably one of my favorite songs, LOVE BB, love your dress, and So over Dora. When your kid can only say 3 words and one is Hola--you know Dora is on tv way too much!

  3. Order it "Coconut mocha frappacino light". Done and done. It's only 160 calories without whip. BOOM.

  4. I'm obsessed with hot pink right now and am debating getting a pair of shorts. Maybe I'll just do it!

  5. That mocha coconut thing sounds divine. I must remember that next time I make a Starbucks run. And sex as a demure alternative for vagina is just plain ridiculous. I liked the 50 Shades books, but they would be so much better without crap like that. I agree that I started skimming over the sex scenes in the 3rd book. Redundant!!

  6. I LOVE all neon colors right now and pink the most bc it has always been my fav color oh and country music is a must in the Summer time....sun, boat, beer, water....Summer is here and i am so excited!!! Have a good weekend

  7. I'm so glad you wrote this sentence...

    "and if I have to read the word "sex" in reference to vagina one more time I may scream."

    I haven't heard anyone else say anything about it and I was beginning to think I missed the memo on what the vagina was supposed to be called! :)

  8. lol @ fifty shades "sex" reference.. that was so annoying! But I guess the V word makes me have that grossed out face I guess it could have been worse!

    Song suggestion... I'm not sure if it's the kind of music that you're into...but it's totally stuck in my head lately... My guy introduced me to it...and I think it's perfect for driving in the summer (yay! finally here!!!) with the windows down...Or for me personally...singing into the blow dryer!

    It's called Tonight by Seether.. It's great! :)

  9. I'm so excited for you and Kristen! What a blast. I am with ya on the "sex" enough. Same with looking through her lashes. urg.

  10. You are the cutest!
    I'm so jealous of yours and Kristin's upcoming visit!! can I crash?
    So you aren't digging the trilogy? I thought the 2nd & 3rd books were the best
    I'm digging hot pink right now too which is sooooo not me. I used to hate pink so I have no idea why it's grown on me lately

    You and I could have some serious Big Brother discussions :)
    Thanks for linking up girlie!

  11. i'm the map, i'm the map, i'm the map, i'm the map, i'm the map, i'm the map, i'm the map, i'm the MAP!!!


  12. In regards to Fifty Shades Freed, agree completely. I've got to know how the damn series ends but for real, the sex scenes are getting old but not nearly as old as the term sex in regards to her vagina! You'd have thought her editor would have been just annoyed with it as the rest of us and changed it!

  13. I loved your hot pink shorts! Where did you get them????? Hang in there with 50 gets better.....I promise!!!

  14. I haven't read the Fifty Shades series, but everybody's been talking about it! Do I need to go ahead and cave in? That frappe looks great! So glad you're having a good mommy week!

  15. I'm hoping that if I never turn on Dora Mackenzie will never like it.

  16. you've inspired me with those pink shorts. I've come close to buying shorts in that color a million times but never follow through!

  17. I'm sorry, what did you say? I was distracted by that amazingly gorgeous man in your post... :)

  18. "and if I have to read the word "sex" in reference to vagina one more time I may scream."

    Haha....that had me losing it :)

  19. I bet you are super stoked about Kristen coming to visit with her cute little dude Smith! How awesomesauce is that?!?! Adam Levine does look hot in those pics for sure! Hot pink is my color girl love love love love it! What a cute post, your little is adorbs!


  20. Another BB lover! Yes! What do you think of that competing Glass House show that's supposed to air this summer? i won't betray my BB!

    I'm so glad W isn't so much into Dora. I'll take a cheeky train any day!

  21. I can't wait for Big Brother!!! It's my favorite reality show!

  22. I can't wait for Big Brother to start up! I love that show. I heard this season was going to be all stars. I agree with you about the third book but the ending chapters from Christian's point of view were GREAT!

  23. The author must be very deeply loves the life. she can from life inspired to make such a creative gadgets
