Currently | August 2017

August has arrived! Even though the year is going by quickly, I’m always happy to see August because it’s my birthday month and also because I just love summer. Today, Anne in Residence and Shea Lennon are hosting the monthly Currently linkup.

Here’s what I’m up to in the month of August!

snacking on

…the antipasto bar at Whole Foods. I’ve walked by this section of this store time and again but for some reason never gave it a try until this past weekend. I don’t know what I was waiting for! These are all my favorite types of things to snack on: peppers, olives, artichoke hearts and more. I’m much more of a savory snacker than a sweet snacker.


…there’s only one answer to this question – Disney World! We’re at just about the one month mark now and all the plans have been made including fast passes, dining reservations and transportation. We haven’t been on a real vacation since our honeymoon over a year ago, so I feel like I’m even more excited than usual for our trip. Not only can I not wait for the magic of Disney, but also I can’t wait for a nice, long break from work and real world responsibilities.


…ideas and inspiration for meal planning. D and I have gotten into a rut lately of eating too much takeout and unhealthy foods for dinner. I really want to get into meal planning again, so I’ve been trying to get some ideas from the internet.


…the new China Glaze My Little Pony nail polish collection!

When I heard that this collection was coming out, I knew I had to pick up a few colors. Well, I ended up getting almost all of them! They’re so beautiful in person and as a fan of My Little Pony, they’re extra fun.


…a LOT of clothing. I need clothes for vacation and also the real world! I really dislike going clothes shopping so I tend to avoid it at all costs. Thus, I haven’t bought new clothes in too long. I’m wearing some of the new jeans I bought this past weekend today and it’s so nice to have something new to wear.

What are you currently up to?

  1. Fun nail colors! And yum, I love a good antipasto platter! I could use some meal planning inspiration myself–I hate getting stuck in a dinner rut.

    1. Dinner ruts are the worst! And of course there’s nothing worse than the “what do you want for dinner? i don’t know, what do you want for dinner” conversations.

  2. Birthday months are the best! And I miss living close to Whole Foods for their various food bars – so convenient, and so delicious. Thanks for linking up 🙂
