Lately I've Been...

I thought it would be fun to do this survey I saw on Julie's blog a few weeks ago.


You should join in! Here are my answers:

Making: Quiches weekly over here. I love quiche so much. I usually switch between a cheese and turkey sausage quiche and cheese and veggie quiche and this will feed G and I both all week long. Yay for breakfast already done each morning.

Cooking: Pot roast in the crock with onions, carrots and potatoes. YUM! It's a favorite of ours over here.

Drinking: Berry smoothies every morning. Smoothies are so refreshing on these warm days and it's such an easy way to get in all my greens and fruits for the day. I plan to try these smoothies next week to switch it up.

Reading: Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. It's so good, but I've been so busy I haven't had a good chance to really sit down and dive in. I'm only about 50 pages in but I'm loving it!


Wanting: A spring/summer wreath, but what else is new? I need to either sit down and make another yarn wreath or just bite the bullet and shell out the $50+ and get one. 

Looking: Forward to a family vacation next month. It's going to be so much fun! A family friend's wedding at a castle. 5 days off work. Lake life. Ahhhh so EXCITE!

Playing: Kacey Musgraves Pandora Station. I'm obsessed with it. I also love the Zac Brown Band, A Capella, Wicked, Chris Tomlin and Bethany Dillon stations.

Wasting: Too much time on Facebook and Instagram every night. I love Insta so much and I spend a good hour every night on it. It's just so addicting.


Wishing: Summer could last forever. It's just the BEST.

Enjoying: A fun week of dinners with friends. Starting a new Bible Study. Girls night and fun plans this weekend with good friends.

Waiting: For our new gazebo to be put up. It's tedious to put up because it has to be bolted to the deck and we went out of town this weekend so we have had to work on it a little bit each night. We are getting so close and I'm just so excited to read out there and eat dinners out there. Once we have that shade and screen to protect from sun and bugs it's an extra living space for the next few months.

Liking: Parenthood. I really enjoy this show! I'm in season 3 now and it just gets better and better.

Wondering: If we need to take Manny to the vet. He has been on Benedryl since Saturday and his swelling is all gone, but his tummy is still pretty pink. I think I might need to take him in.

Loving: Burning candles. If you've read this blog for even just a little bit you know I am obsessed. Bath and Body Works candles are my favorite. I burn one every night for about an hour before bed while I read. It's my favorite time of day.

Hoping: I find some good stuff at garage sales this weekend. We go to this sale every year and I've lucked out the past few years. 

Needing: To get extra pillows and blankets. I have a friend staying the night Friday and I realized I only have one extra pillow and only one extra blanket, but it's a quilt my grandma made so I rather not use it. I need to stock up!

Wearing: Skirts and flip flops all day everyday.


Following: Pitbulls of Instagram. I love pits so much and this account always shows the cutest pictures of this sweet breed.

Noticing: It's summer. I still cannot believe it's summer. It was 90 degrees and sunny yesterday and I'm just not used to it. I still get surprised when I see how green the grass and trees are. But I love it. I love it so much.

Knowing: I have an amazing group of girlfriends. I'm hosting a girls night this weekend and I'm just so excited to spend time with them. Laugh a lot. Have real conversations. It's such a blessing and I don't take it for granted.

Thinking: About doing the 21 Day Fix eating plan again once things calm down (will they ever calm down?) with running to see if I lose more than I did when I was doing the workouts (i.e. heavy lifting). 

Feeling: Content. I'm almost 20 pounds down. I'm eating pretty clean. I'm running everyday. I enjoyed a change of scenery this weekend. G and I are going to church again. Reading a marriage book. A weekend full of seeing good friends. Life is just so good.

Bookmarking: All the spaghetti squash recipes on Pinterest. I just made my first batch of it and it was so easy. Now I need to decide what to make with it. The options are endless!

Opening: A bottle of Hawthorne Valley Rose on the deck tonight to celebrate the gazebo being complete (hopefully we will finish tonight!).

How fun! Life sounds good :-) you should check out Jo annes for sure this weekend, I got a flyer in the mail saying wreaths are 75% off and the one in the picture was really pretty. I think the sale was June 7-13. Are you guys coming over on Saturday? It would be so fun to see you!
