Currently...

I'm linking up with Christy today for a round of Currently
Reading ...
I haven't started a novel yet this month, but I've been reading Savor every day which has been a nice way for me to take a few moments, reflect, and in some cases, pray.

Listening to...
Serial2...I have two episodes to get caught up on--maybe this weekend while we're painting we'll put it on

Watching ...
The Bachelor! Lace is a looney--I originally thought she was going to be the resident Biatch for the season, but I realizes this wee that it's Olivia, who's mega annoying--both the bragging and her over the top facial expressions. Ben is adorable.

Cooking...
SOUPS! I mentioned last week that it's all I've been craving so I made chili over the weekend, and then my broccoli cheddar soup on Monday. I'm in soup heaven!
Wanting ...
for someone to magically paint our bedroom. Especially the 16 ft wall. I really don't feel like falling off of a ladder and busting my head open this weekend haha

Looking forward to ... 
a happy hour blate (blogger-date) with my girl Christy today after work in Arlington!!! 


Enjoying ...
that we had one more random warm day on Sunday in the middle of Winter. Considering last year we were already dealing with snow, I was happy to see 63. Although, I'd take a snow day or too....

Loving....
that we have a three-day weekend ahead, followed by a teacher work day (which, for me, means an all-day training). On Monday it's going to be VERY nice, not to have to wake up to an alarm, and get in some extra Cooper snuggles too :)

Wearing ...
my gray cable knit Uggs, because it has been cooooooold around these parts lately. It was in the single digits with the windchill yesterday morning. No thank you, senor.

Pinning...
bedroom inspiration photos like I talked about yesterday in my What's Hap-"Pinning" post
Feeling ... 
excited because MG and I are going to go out and test drive a new car this weekend! I've been toying with the idea of getting a new car for a while now, but putting it off because I don't NEED one. Well, Nissan is having 0% financing for 60 months, so we figured we'd go check out the car I've had my eye on and see what kind of deals we can make since my trade-in should be pretty decent. Doesn't mean Ill get one this weekend, but I'm excited to go look and test drive!
*beep beep*

Grateful For...
Friends who are there when you need them and remember special/important dates in your life or with things that are going on. I'm so lucky to have so many friends in my life who are loving, supportive, and caring no matter what. #allthehearteyes

Don't forget to link up what you're up to currently!

  2. Ugh, this weather is awful. I could eat soup every day in winter I think!! YES, Olivia is sooo crazy, and I just feel bad for Lace!! She's really annoying, tho. I love Caila, even though she seems a little too immature for me, but I still love her (also because she's from Ohio originally, like 40 minutes from me haha!). And Ben really is adorable--I am anxious for the rest of this season! I've been wearing boots all week because of the cold, haha. And I am SO jealous of your blate tonight!! Have a blast :)

  4. Ahhh test driving is so fun. I hope you like it! Good luck with the room painting. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Be careful, though. That wall sounds super intimidating!

  5. We are big in soups in the winter, they are just so cozy to eat. I need to replace my Uggs soon and will probably get the cable knit ones, they are so cute!

    Xoxo,

  6. Yay for test driving! I actually took advantage of a Nissan sale a few weeks ago and traded in my front wheel drive for an all wheel drive to battle the snow in, haha. I have the Rogue and I absolutely love it! Do you like the second season of serial? My bf is listening to it, and he doesn't think its as good as the first season!

  7. Trying to catch up on my favorite blogs, your next! Okay, tell me about the devotional Savor....I've been looking for a new one for the new year. Are they short, one a day type of devotions? Or is it more of a reading book?

  8. I almost feel like I'm over doing it with the soups but I'm just trying to get my fill of them before it's too hot to even look at food again, haha.
    Have fun test driving this weekend!!

  10. I'm also REALLY looking forward to Monday off!
    And broccoli cheddar soup sounds good. I was going to make soup this weekend too.

    ReplyDelete

  13. I am usually a Sunday soup maker. I haven't gotten into that groove yet this year and I definitely won't the next few weeks. I'm enjoying your soups from afar! LOL

    My BFF has the new fully loaded Nissan Murano and loves it. It's her second Murano. My dad is looking at it too.

    I wish your room was magically painted when you arrived home today.

  14. I'm on my second Rogue, love it, love Nissan. And love you and those uggs

  15. Holy crap what is going on with that girls mouth in that picture? That is seriously going to give me nightmares.....not as bad as your rearview mirror snap that you sent to me because that still haunts my dreams...... ;-)

  16. I want to punch Olivia in her stupid big mouth. She is super annoying and there's no way she will win, although she will probably get right up to the end since that always happens. A lot of the girls on this season seem really young and annoying, so wishing Ben the best of luck with this group. In other news, love your guest room inspo. So pretty! And how exciting to possibly get a new car!!!:)

  17. I didn't watch this week bc the hubs and I were caught up in a Netflix series and just HAD to finish it! I still just want to know who names their kid Lace? And when all the women in the house are under the age of 27-28.....you know there are bound to be some crazies haha!! How exciting on the new car! I said that I was going to buy myself a new car for my 30th, but we're waiting on having a bambino so that I can get a "mommy suv" ;) Can't wait to hear about the test drive!

  18. I love three day weekends for teachers.. my husband will usually come and take me to lunch, so we get a date without the kids. I know he's excited about the day off too! Have fun looking at cars!!! fingers crossed you get to take one home with you! Oh man.. Olivia... she LIKED MY INSTAGRAM picture yesterday.. the one linking to my recap that made fun of her.. and I was like OH MY GOD SHE'S GOING TO HUNT ME DOWN!!! because I made fun of her mouth and compared her to a dinosaur.. it was a moment of panick!

  19. I didn't realize how crazy Olivia is until this weeks episode! And I don't understand how her mouth is that big lol Have so much fun test driving a new car!

  20. Those Uggs look so warm and comfortable! I need a pair. Have fun on your blate tonight and car shopping is always fun too!

  21. Yay for test driving a new car!!

  22. Yay for 3 day weekends and Serial! Hopefully my husband and I can listen to today's episode this weekend.

  23. How fun that you're looking at a new car - we have a Nissan Pathfinder and love it. I haven't watched bachelor from this week yet, but I'm sure it was a doozy.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, The Bachelor...and Olivia's mouth...
    What I really couldn't believe was that Olivia is only 23 years old. She looks so much older than that; she just looks so mature! Not sure if she'll end up so mature.

  25. Thanks for linking up! Those Uggs are ADORABLE! I'm sorry I had to cancel our blate! Sick puppies are no fun! I'm really mad that I didn't win the Powerball...I could have hired you to be my full time interior designer and personal stylist because umm YES to those bedrooms!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The soups!!! With this weather that's the best meal!! Enjoy the test driving - so exciting!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love that car!! And the knit Uggs are must haves for this time of year - I've wanted a pair since college!

    ReplyDelete
  28. The Bachelor has been SO good already! Lace is totally crazy, even if she won't admit it and Olivia (who I thought was gonna be one of my favorites) is annoying already. She'll probably win.

    I'm not sure if you are looking to get a Rogue, but I got a 2015 Rogue in September and I LOVE IT! It drives great, the gas mileage is amazing, and it feels sporty, even though it's an SUV. Good luck with car shopping!

  29. Hey I live in Arlington! So fun! I have a 3 day weekend followed by a teacher work day too, so hopefully I actually learn something ;) I just pulled my gray cable knit Uggs back out because it hasn't seemed cold enough for them but they are so comfy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes to that three day weekend and a teacher work day! Woot! That new car is prettttty... I hope you get it! Your snaps with the walls have been cracking me up! xo, Champagne&Suburbs
