Currently (August 2016)...


Reading three different books.  I'm still working my way through the three books from my last Currently post. I thought I'd get so much done during my 9 days off of work but the time flew by and I got absolutely nothing done during those 9 days (whoooops). My brother also just finished Harry Potter & the Cursed Child and he is going to drop it off at the house for me to start - can't wait!

Listening to the same playlist on Spotify that I've been listening to for months. I'll add songs to it as I hear them on XM and love them. I just recently added Love Triangle by RaeLynn and In Case You Didn't Know by Brett Young - loving them right now

Celebrating the Blue Jays win last night. I had a meeting for work so I wasn't able to watch but was looking at updates on my phone. The Jays made a late comeback and scored 8 runs in the 8th inning and ending up winning the game 12-6. Makes for exciting baseball! It doesn't hurt that they're now back in 1st place in the AL East too...

Watching the last season of The Office. Still. I'm just not wanting it to end so I keep rewatching older episodes. I'm two episodes away from the finale and I'm not emotionally prepared. I've also been watching a bit of the Olympics (though I'm finding I'm just not as interested this year as I am most years) and baseball, of course

Drinking Shakeology, coffee, and water. I had a few drinks on the weekend while at a birthday party for a family friend but I just haven't been in a drinking mood lately, which is definitely weird. My fridge is stocked full of alcohol and it will definitely last me past Summer - that's a first!

Waiting for the weekend. Pretty much always waiting for that but even more so when it means I'll be heading out of town for a mini vacay

Loving the fact that my sister in law and brother have made it public knowledge that they're expecting - I'm going to be an auntie again! I've been bursting at the seams to be able to shout the news. I've known since before my brother and SIL even have (looong story) so I've been very impatiently waiting to be able to say anything. He/She is expected to arrive on Valentine's Day and it's taken every ounce of willpower to not start shopping for itty bitty baby stuff already!

Working at my second job the next two Saturdays in a row. The extra money will be nice since I am wanting to order a new Beachbody challenge pack but it's the last two Saturdays before school starts back up and the summer holiday is over so that's a bit of a bummer to be stuck inside all day long 

Wearing the same clothes over and over again. I'm so sick of the clothes in my wardrobe - I want to get rid of them all and start all over. But my budget doesn't exactly allow for that (whomp whomp)

Anticipating my next visit to see MN - 5 more sleeps! We're going up to his Aunt's cabin and I can't wait to just relax (though I'm never fully able to relax whenever I leave when the Centre is open - something I need to work on)

Making plans to get things crossed off my Summer Bucket List (and already working on my Fall Bucket List - I have a problem)

Summer Lovin'...

I've always been one of those people that counts down to Summer all year long (and then as soon as Summer is officially over the countdown to Christmas can begin - but you better believe I'm still always thinking ahead to Summer...).  I'm also one of those people that gets super sad and anxious as soon as August rolls around and Summer starts coming to an end. Almost all of my favourite childhood memories took place in the Summer months, from wherever my parents had our camper parked at the time. Summer is just my favourite. Hands down. The end.

I've never really been that into the Fall season, because it takes the place of Summer and that just breaks my heart. And don't even get me started on how much I hate Winter (I probably wouldn't hate it so much if it didn't last 6 months here in the GWN). For some straaaange reason though, lately I have found myself daydreaming about Fall. And that's completely out of the norm for me. I've caught myself thinking about hot coffee from Starbucks, wearing boots and scarves again, decorating with pumpkins, and even thinking about the changing color of the trees  - what's wrong with me?!

Summer is quickly coming to an end and I still have SO much to cross off of my Summer Bucket List y'all - thank goodness I still technically have 41 days of Summer left (yes, September counts!). I have actually only crossed 4 things off of my Summer Bucket List so far- yikes! I better get concentrating on it more - though there are already a few things that I know won't be happening for sure (insert sad face here). Can we just rewind to July 1st please?! 

I still have lots to recap about my Summer so far (two trips to MN, one to KC) - hopefully I can get some words written this weekend - wish me luck!
