Anticipating: Moving to my new apartment! I can't say that I saw this coming when I moved to my current apartment a year ago, but I really am excited to get into a new space. I don't want to say that I'm never content, but I do enjoy a change of scenery every now and then. And who doesn't like a blank canvas for decorating?
Buying: The positively, absolutely, most adorable top I have ever seen from Anthropologie! I don't want to give too much away because it will be coming to the blog soon, but let's just say it involves something else I love a whole lot.
Eating: Pigs in a blanket! I got a craving for this last week and knew it would make my grocery list for the coming week. I follow a super simple recipe - just hot dogs, American cheese and crescent rolls - and you're good to go. It reminds me so much of my childhood and spending the night at my grandparents' house with my sister. Sometimes you need a little nostalgia.
Feeling: Exhausted! Between two trips in back-to-back months, a full load at the office, and my impending move you can already guess that I don't have a lot of downtime. That is, until I decide to come home from work, eat dinner, and go straight to bed. I've been struggling with balancing everything out lately but am trying to stay positive that everything will run its course after I'm settled in my new space.
Listening: to Mariah Carey, circa 1990, because darling you'll always be my baby. In all seriousness though, music gets me through the day and (strangely) helps me stay focused on what I need to do. I definitely have music for certain moods but lately I have been loving my 90s jams. I may get strange looks from my coworkers for my lip syncing performance, but it's totally worth it.
Loving: Old beauty favorites. I ran out of the usual suspects, like mascara and eyeshadow primer, and instead of trying something new I went back to what I knew I loved. Let me tell you, I am so glad I did. Trying new products is a lot of fun but I don't want to become a beauty hoarder (yikes). Plus, if you know what you like, why not use it?
Trying: to play tennis again! Well, I've played once so far, for about five minutes. But I actually did a lot better than I thought I would, other than the fact that my arms are incredibly sore and I couldn't for the life of me think of what would have caused it. Oh right, I'm out of shape. My new apartment has a tennis court on site so I'll have no excuse to not get out there and play and get in some exercise too.
Wondering: how two people can make so much noise. I will never ever again live in a first floor apartment. I had been pretty lucky since no one was living above me for the longest time, but while I was on vacation, my new neighbors moved in. But really though, how can you not be aware that you're stomping so much? Top floor living is where it's at.
Watching: HBO Now. I know, I know. Do I really need another app for watching TV? Probably not, but they offered a free month subscription and I was convinced to start watching Game of Thrones. I didn't think I would like it but now I'm most definitely hooked. We're only halfway through season 3 so no spoilers please! Even though I've already been duped by E! News and their lack of fair warning. I did, however, speed right through all of Girls and one of my favorite movies of all time is on there, That Thing You Do, so that alone is reason enough to have the service if you ask me!
Visiting: my family at the lake! I think we are finally going to have some summer weather around here this weekend, so my sister, her girlfriend and I are heading down to my visit my aunts and uncle at their lake house. Confession - I've only swam in a lake once in my entire life, so it should be interesting.
What have you been up to lately?
