Currently....{the one with the new car}

I'm linking up with Christy today for a round of 'Currently.'
Reading ...
Thanks to the recommendation from Sarah, I downloaded The 5th Wave which is one of those kind of post-apocalyptic novels, but it's different because it's what happens if aliens invaded and took over. Sounds a little weird, but it's kept me entertained so far! I heard the movie isn't that good tho...womp womp

Listening to...
the guys from Home Depot FINALLY installing our storm/screen doors. After 2.5 months, it was about freaking time! (this pretty much guarantees that we won't have any more nice weather for a long time tho now that we have the screens to use haha)

Watching ...

Oh my gosh, so much stuff on my DVR. This week I've watched Bachelor and Bachelor Live, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Girlfriend's Guide, Married at First Sight....the list goes on and on haha.
P.S. Olivia is still a nut job. You can't be in love with someone you haven't even gone on a date with. The end.

Cooking...
I finally got to get back to cooking last night after a few days of scrounging together meals since the weekend. We tried going to get groceries on Monday but the stores still looked like there was a zombie apocalypse so, we missed out there. Luckily the store was almost fully stocked again yesterday (minus milk), so I'm gonna make my Sriracha Meatball Rice Bowl tonight and it will be ahhhhh-mazing!

Looking forward to ... 
MG's best friend and fiance coming down from NY this weekend! Can't wait to see them and spend some time together--last time we saw them was right after Christmas so it'll be nice to see them again so soon!

Wishing...
my dad a very happy birthday!! I'm so happy we get to celebrate another year together, and I'm glad that his health is stable right now!

Enjoying ...
all of the snow days we've had off this week (MG works for the federal govt and they had off through Tuesday)--and we just got word yesterday that we're out today and Friday as well. Luckily we've been able to get out since Monday morning so we haven't been stuck in the house, but the roads where buses have to go haven't been plowed well enough to get buses through, or have kids not walking in the streets to get to buses or school. Winter Break Part 2 has been awesome!

Loving....
MY NEW CAR!!!!!!!! MG and I took advantage of the snow day for schools and the federal govt on Tuesday and pulled the trigger on my beautiful 2016 Nissan Rogue. I know a bunch of you told me you have them and love the Rogues which was even more reassuring. I'm absolutely smitten with my car...and it has AWD so the snow is no longer an issue for me in the future!
*beepbeep*

Wanting ...
to drive my car...all the time...everywhere---isn't it funny how that's the case when you get a new car?


Wearing ...
what I've called my "snow day attire" which include leggings (my Zella ones here are so amazingly comfortable) and warm, comfy tops. Sensing a theme of comfort here? :)

Feeling ... 
glad that MG and I were able to make it over to our friends' house on Tuesday morning. They're a couple of days away from the birth of their twins, so we went over to help them move some things around and get their tv mounted on the wall. It was great getting to see them just days before their two little loves arrive (and was crazy saying bye to them, knowing the next time we see them will be as a family of 4)!

Grateful For...
so many things! I've been keeping a gratitude journal which has really given me some time each day to reflect on all of the blessings and positive things from that day.



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

  3. I'm glad you're enjoying The 5th Wave! I'm not into the alien stuff either.....Harry Potter and The Hunger Games is about as much fantasy/dystopian as I get. But when a student gives you the book and asks you to read it, you can't say no. And I'm glad I did! The 2nd book still kept me guessing and now I have to wait until May for the 3rd book! Love your new car!!!!

  4. When it comes to cars, you and me are such polar opposites! The PILOT says we'll need a 2nd car when we have kids and I see myself begrudgingly walking into a car dealership 9 months pregnant haha! I do love your new car though and AWD is awesome! My snow day outfit was basically the same and it was wonderful! Enjoy the rest of Winter Break Part II!

  11. yay new car! and Happy Birthday Papa Zapor! Love this photos of the two of you. He is just too cute for words. Those leggings... where did you get them?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Is that comfy top from Old Navy? If so I have two.

    Congratulations on the new car and happy happy birthday to your dad!

    We drove out of Dulles on Wednesday morning and many roads were missing lanes because there was nowhere to put the snow. Philly looks pretty good but my neighborhood is like land of the snow and there's a huge 6 ft pile at the end of my driveway.

  13. Glad your dad is feeling ok, and wishing him a very happy birthday! So excited for you and your new car. It's always fun to make a big new purchase like that once in awhile, isn't it? Enjoy it!!!

  14. Happy Birthday to your dad and YAYAY for a new car!!! So exciting! I'm obsessed with my Zella leggings, too - the most comfy things in the world! Also, Olivia = total nut job. I'm loving this season though!

  15. My mom texted me after last week's bachelor and said, "When they're casting the show, approximately what percentage of unstable contestants do you think they're hoping for?" Hahaha.

  16. I wish I had DVR! Haha although it might be good because if I don't catch something when it airs, it's gone. Haha it's the main reason why I'm not watching The Bachelor - it airs at the same time as Vanderpump Rules! Happy birthday to your dad, my bday twin!

  17. Happy Birthday to your dad, congrats on the new car! I skipped out on the Bachelor this season since I don't have a DVR and I am regretting it!

  18. CONGRATS on the new car and for the new storm doors! Olivia is officially the crazy-pants of this season. It's usually the first impression rose who turns out to be ridiculous (Remember Tierra with the eyebrow in Sean's season?). Happy Birthday to your dad :-D

  26. Congrats on the new car! My husband has an Altima, and it's been such a great car! When I saw the previews for The 5th Wave, I knew that I wanted to read the book before seeing the movie! I'm glad that you're liking the book, but that makes me sad that you heard that the movie wasn't that good.

  28. Congrats on the new car, lady! Ryan loves his Pathfinder, so I only can imagine how awesome the Rogue is, too. I'm glad that you finally got that storm door installed, too even though you probably can't use it for a while. Enjoy the rest of your second winter break!
