C U R R E N T L Y

Reading - Just finished "Boys in the Boat" by Daniel Brown. It was an amazing tale of our 1936 gold medal rowing crew that edged German at the Berlin Olympics. The boys were all college kids from Washington and possibly one of the greatest crews to ever row. I highly recommend this book y'all, it's a great one.
Anticipating - a trip to visit Le Husband's family. We haven't been there since March and it will be nice to see everyone again. Bring on the new baby [yay nephew], pool party, family dinners and toddler fun.
Buying - groceries and plane tickets. #tripsontripsontrips
Praying -  for the family that was murdered in DC last week. Such a heartbreaking story, at least they have the subject in custody now. And for our government as ISIS continues to gain power in the Middle East. They need to be stopped!
Listening - Summertime by good ol Kenny Chesney. It's the best with the windows down and sun roof open.
Watching - RHONY, Royals, NCIS {all three}, Elementary and of course the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Devouring - avocados and sweet potatoes, get in my belly.
Loving - the heat of summer. I love walking around it booty shorts [haha] and tank tops at 8pm, it's the best right?
Hating - a new system that was put in at work at the beginning of the month. It has made my team's job 100% harder and it's frustrating.
Wanting - cupcakes to not count as calories, is that too much to ask?
Hoping - all of my clean eating and workouts the past two months will show up at the pool this year. 
Feeling - content and restless at the exact same time. Life is good and I'm happy but I am ready for the next phase in life. We have our plans and ideas and are working to execute them soon. #staytuned
Wishing - I was more flexible. I'm doing yoga, ballet and trying to stretch every night but these tight hips don't lie... flexibility is not something that comes naturally to me.

THere's just something about country music in the summertime, isn't there? I can't get enough of it! I just started watching RHONY again after taking a few years off. I love that I can just pick right back up and not feel lost. Oh those girls and their drama. And now I'm in search of a cupcake!

If only we could go to the pool together... Going with me would be a total confidence booster as my body continues to grow everywhere else, as well as my belly, AH! Ha ha!
I'm so excited for all the trips you have coming up! Yay! And family time? The best!!
I know we've already talked about this buuuuuut, I feel your pain with not being flexible. I seriously want to start Mia in ballet and other stuff now just to develop her flexibility so she doesn't struggle like me down the road, ha ha! I don't get it though- how can one be so strong, but so not flexible?! How did I do ballet for years but never once mastered the splits?! Bodies are so weird!

So loving the heat of summer right now too (although in a couple weeks I'll probably be saying I am over it, ha)! If cupcakes didn't count as calories - my life would be complete - I had one too many this weekend and am making up for it now!

Julia said...

Yes to country music in the Summertime, and shorts and tanks! Just needing to work harder so I will feel more comfortable in those shorts, lol!

I could live on avocados. I'm mad that I've lost a lot of my flexibility. Also loving the warm weather, when it's not raining.

Emily said...

Love that trips hashtag! I swear I spend all of my money on traveling..it's never ending!! Hope you enjoyed the weekend!

Sarah O said...

Love that picture! I'm watching the Royals too and honestly can't decide if I like it. I think the acting is terrible, but by the end of the show I'm hooked and I need to know what happens next.

Jen said...

Robin said...

Why do workplaces feel the need to change things that were just fine before?

Alana Livingston said...

Oh how I love me some Kenny...
I wish we had nice weather here--I don't think it's stopped raining since April (I'm beginning to think a tornado carried us away to Portland haha)
Cupcakes without calories?! Be sure to let me know if you find those!!

Kathy@RealTalk said...

Jess said...

When you find the cupcakes that don't count as calories please share! That books sounds really good. Ongoing to have to download it. Thanks!!

Lindsay @ Broke and Bougie said...

ughhhh I have been so happy with my progress at yoga, until we get to hips. Those things do not want to move!

Laura Darling said...

Mmm I am on a sweet potato kick right now too! I just had one for dinner!

Boys in the Boat is on my to-read list! Everyone raves about it, but I've had a hard time sneaking in extra books between the ones I read for my book club!
