Currently // May 2017

Exercising | Ivan and I have started jogging together at night a few times a week. I’m sure he would rather go at a faster pace, but he’s patient with me. I prefer to run with him because he makes me go faster and push myself a bit further. I also still use Fitness Blender on the regular.

Cooking | I’ve been trying my best to eat healthier and eat a home. I’ve been meal planning and making vegetarian meals at least 3 times a week. Maybe I’ll do a post soon about some of our favorite vegetarian meals. I’ve also been thinking about going completely vegetarian for a month. It’s on my 30 Before 30 List and I feel like I can actually do it now.

Wanting | I really want to work on paying off our credit cards. We usually do a great job about not carrying a balance, but with the move, fixing the truck and a few other large expenses, we’ve gotten off track. I think if we buckle down for a few months we can get everything back in order.

Playing | Lots and lots of Podcasts. If you’re looking for some recommendations, read my post about my 7 favorite podcasts.

Watching | I’ve been watching so much crap on netflix and amazon lately. Did you know that Unsolved Mysteries is now streaming on amazon? God, I loved that show growing up. The anticipation of waiting to see if there was an update and if they caught the murdered. It’s just so addicting. Plus I love the host’s bad ass raincoat.

Looking | I’m really looking forward to when my friend (and old roommate!) comes to visit this month. She’ll be staying with us for her birthday week and I cannot wait to see her. I love playing host in DC and I of course, love seeing her happy face :)

Listening | Right before our trip to New Orleans, I discovered Halsey. I downloaded her album Badlands to listen to during the flight and I’ve been playing it on repeat ever since. Have you guys heard of her? I’d put her in the Lorde / Lana Del Ray space, but with a little more oomph. I don’t know if that makes sense. All I can say is that I’ve really been enjoying her album.

Today I’m joining Anne for the monthly “currently” link up

  • That’s awesome that you guys have been jogging and eating healthier. We’ve been taking walks and trying to eat at home more. Overall I’m trying to make better choices… I think I’ve been doing ok. But I should probably kick it up a notch at some point for more results. I love eating veggie and would love seeing recipes that you have been enjoying! I like Halsey’s voice, but that New Americana song drove me a bit bonkers. hahah I was like teenagers right now did NOT grow up listening to “biggie and Nirvana” lol. #judgy – I’ll have to give the other stuff a listen. Good luck with the credit cards and enjoy hosting your old roomie! :) XO – Alexandra

  • I don’t know Halsey, but she sounds right up my alley. Thanks for the recommendation! And now I’m off to check out your podcast recommendations, because despite hardly being able to keep up with my own list, I always love finding new ones.

  • That’s great your friend is coming to visit soon. That should be soon. I do know Halsey, and I like the New Americana song but I don’t know much else besides that and “Colors” I think.


    • Yeah, Colors is her too. It’s funny, when I first heard Colors, I didn’t like it. Now it’s really grown on me and its one of my favorites on the album :)

  • I’d love to see some yummy vegetarian meals!

  • We loooove Halsey!! Ugh, seriously so good! She just put out a new single (Now or Never I think?) and it is soooo good too!! Off to check out your fave podcasts :)
