Feeling… a little anxious about running. It hasn’t been the best running week for me, which makes me feel really nervous about my race at the end of March. I know, I know. I have plenty of time, but I’m really not in 5k shape just yet. And I just want every week to be a roses & butterflies running week! Why can’t it be that way? Meh.
Reading… Yes Please by Amy Poehler. I’m only about 25% in, but I love it so far. I have such a crazy girl crush on Amy, and I think it will only expand the more I read her book.
Writing… for a really fun freelance project. I can’t say much about it, but it’s been a really interesting process so far and a good way to stretch my writing muscles in a totally different way.
Listening to… Taylor Swift’s 1989 and nope, I am not sorry about it. I even bought the album on iTunes, something I have never done, because she took all her music off Spotify, so I had to. Well played, Swifty.
Watching… Parenthood, currently. Last night was the series finale, but I’m still about four episodes behind. I’m not ready for this TV show to end! Why does it have to end? It makes no sense. I’m super bummed. What other show is going to make me sob hard with each episode?
Excited about… taking my seventh cruise in May! Yep – that’s right. My mom and I have booked another cruise. After our first cruise in May of 2011, we promised one another we would try our hardest to take one cruise a year and we have done that! This will mark five years in a row of us taking a cruise in May. This year, we’re taking a 7-day cruise out of Miami. It travels to Half Moon Cay (Carnival’s private island in the Bahamas), St. Thomas, Puerto Rico, and Grand Turk. The past two years, we’ve taken short 5-day cruises, so I am stoked for a longer cruise. Only 106 days and counting!
Playing… Trivia Crack. It’s an obsession. And I’m not especially good at it. So it makes me feel like a moron sometimes. But it’s fun! And educational! And I’m learning so much useless trivia!
Buying… new pants because nothing is fitting me anymore! In the best way – I’ve lost 10 lbs since December and it must all be in my waist and hips because my pants are not fitting me right anymore. I splurged on a pair of exercise capris (I tend to budget shop for those, but slapped down $50 on a pair of Nike running capris), as well as a pair of Old Navy skinny jeans. (I was able to go two sizes down in those! Wahoo!)
Thinking about… bangs. I have a hair appointment coming up in the next few weeks and I was scrolling through Pinterest last night and found this cut and I want it and I know I shouldn’t get it because BANGS AND ME ARE NOT A GOOD FIT. But it’s cute! And fun! And someone talk me out of this!
Loving… the #brosbeingbasic Instagram account, researching excursions for my upcoming cruise, when Dutch snuggles against me so perfectly while I’m writing, dark chocolate covered pomegranates, and girl talk.
