Currently I am...

Reading: Gone Girl.  I'm only about quarter of the way through it but I love the way it's written.  I love the way "Amy" talks and I think she and I would be friends.  I'm so curious to find out what happens and everyone has told me, "I hated the ending" so that makes me even more eager.  I hear Reese Witherspoon plays Amy in the soon-to-be-movie version and so far, that's a perfect match.

Listening To:  The Band Perry, Better Dig Two.  I don't know why I just love this dark, funny song.  Jimmy thinks it's weird, I think it's a love song.  Plus I kinda think The Band Perry can do no wrong.

Watching:  Pretty Little Liars.  My mom told me about this show when it first came on but for some reason it took every blogger in America to convince me that I need to jump on this bandwagon.  I am about halfway through season 2 and while I'm still hooked I'm sort of losing interest.  Like, can we find out who "A" is already?  It's driving me batty but keeps me watching at the same time.

Melting Over:  My big girl waking up in her new big girl bed.  We finally made the transition this weekend and I caught her waking up for the first time on video.  I think she loved it and I think I love her a little more.

Annoyed By: My stupid stuffy nose.  I swear this never happened when I was pregnant with Kendall and it's like payback times two.  Seriously.  My nose whistles when I lay down which only keeps me from sleeping which is the last thing I need right now.  My pregnancy apps say it's not going away anytime soon either.  Awesomesauce.

Wearing:  My colored maternity skinnies from Gap.  I have them in mint and purple {or neon violet} and if I could I'd wear them every day.  They're the softest skinny jeans I've ever owned and possibly the most comfortable maternity jeans I've ever wore.  I love that they make me stylish even when I'm feeling like a blimp.

Shopping For: Curtains for our dining area.  We have a very open kitchen/living room/dining room area so I'm in the process of making that area flow better.  If you know what I mean.  We have bamboo roller shades on the window right now {they came with the house} and while I kind of have a love/hate relationship with them I feel like the window needs some layering in the form of these pretties.

Writing:  Our bedroom makeover post.  I've been so excited about our new makeover and we've been enjoying our new living space {not new but we never spent any time in there because we hated it} and I need to share it with you!  I'm terrible at actually breaking out a real camera but I promise, it's coming this week.

Excited About:  Warmer weather.  This weekend gave me hope that spring is coming.  We played outside, enjoyed some sunshine on our faces, ate ice cream, cracked the windows {just a bit} while we were driving, it was glorious.  

Obsessed With:  GroopDealz and Ebates.  Are you signed up with GroopDealz yet?  They have the cutest, perfect for gift-giving {or keeping for yourself} things and CHEAP.  I have gotten a few necklaces and a cute monogrammed tumbler for KP recently and barely broke the bank.  The deals change daily so you have to be quick but I am positive you'll find something you {or someone you know} love.  And, I've said it before but I'll say it again, if you aren't shopping with Ebates, you're dumb.  They make it easy to earn money when you're shopping for things you'd already buy.  Last quarter my Big Fat Check was almost $900, I'm not kidding.

Laughing At:  Star Magazine reported that Kim Kardashian {who is due around the same time as me} has already gained 65+ lbs this pregnancy.  Now I find that hard to believe BUT if it is true, it makes my 11 lb weight gain seem A-OK and makes me feel good about myself.  Sorry, Kim.


  1. I've been eyeing up those same curtains for my dining room! I just have commitment issues with stuff for the house.

  2. I find it so hard to believe that Kim has gained 65 pounds. If she did, she is hiding it well!

  3. I saw that about Kim too. But, she's only like 5 months, right? I highly doubt it is true, although she did look large in that picture. I'm pretty sure that it was just a poor outfit choice, bad timing, and a little photoshop.

  4. Gone Girl will blow your mind :) Just you wait! And I didn't hear that about Kim K but HAHA that makes me feel better (even if it isn't true!!!)

  5. Gone Girl is amazing! I didn't know they were making a movie. Also I have those curtains in black and also in tan. They are perfection- I think you must buy them!

  6. I loved Gone Girl but agree, I hated the ending. Still want to see the movie though.

  7. Ok I cannot believe Reese plays Amy in the Gone Girl movie. I don't like that one bit!

  8. Gone Girl was my favorite book of 2012 & the ending is actually perfectly fitting. Who plays Go & Nick? I was hoping for the Gyllenhauls- how perfect would they be??!!

  9. You need those curtains! And you should get some to put on the sliding glass door! So I just signed up for ebates!

  10. Gone Girl. You will love it. If you're 1/4 of the way... just wait!


  11. OMG I am dying if she really gained 65 lbs. No way!!!
