Sometimes this blog has to be more than boozy recipes and pretty Instagram shots, you know?

A little bit ago Ashley shared this post - starting a weekly "Currently" post in the style of the lovely Danielle from Sometimes Sweet. Still following me here? Basically the point is you do a weekly check in to what is going on/how you're feeling. Now, this won't be a weekly post for me- but I figured you all might care even a smidgen what's going on in my here goes:

FEELING: Ready for the weekend. Ya dig? 

READING: The new Martha magazine. Is it a book? No, but it is full of so much summer goodness! I'm a Martha mag hoarder. I can't ever bring myself to recycle them. Too pretty!

LISTENING TO: Thunder. That's not some cool new band name, I really mean thunder. It's been storming all week here and I've been waking up a few times a night to thunder and lightening and pounding rain. Half relaxing, half terrifying.

THANKFUL FOR: A recent surprise gift from Michael. Nothing fancy or elaborate- but a replacement for something I had emotional ties to that was falling apart. Well done, M. Well done.

THINKING ABOUT: MOVING. Gah. We move into our new apartment in 3 weeks and it cannot come soon enough. I am so ready to be out of our crappy building and into a place with more space, in a better area. Let the decorating plans begin!

EATING: Copious amounts of pesto. Our basil plant grows at a ridiculous rate, so I've been making pesto 1-2 times a week for pasta or flatbread. So so so much garlic. Since we're on the topic of garlic, I currently reek of it from the guac I just made. Not mad about it.

WATCHING: Master Chef. Dudes, I love this show. I love how harsh Gordon Ramsay is. I love how ridiculously stuck up Joe Bastianich is. I love how Graham Elliot is kind of the third wheel. I love making fun of that Beth idiot that sobs all the time. 

LOVING: THIS  necessary summer shirt, THIS  perfect everyday bracelet, THIS miracle working self tanner, and THIS bomb diggity lucite jewelry/makeup container.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: The wedding we're going to this weekend. Besides the obvious joy of seeing two pretty friends who love each other get married, I'm also a big fan of dressing up. And seeing Michael dress up. Sorry in advance for the inevitable amount of Instagram shots. 

Now it's YOUR turn!!

Either answer one of these in the comment sections,
