Current Music
I've been working out a lot lately (like 5/6 days a week) so I've been into weird things lately. Workout-friendly music that I'm normally not God's Plan by Drake, Whatever It Takes by Imagine Dragons, The Middle by Zedd (& others), Pray For Me by The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar (and I realllllly do not like The Weeknd! lol), I Fall Apart and Rockstar by Post Malone. Also love Beg by Jack & Jack, and Lemon by N.E.R.D & Rhianna.

I have a few forever favs and standbys...Bruno, Lily Allen, Dua Lipa, Ariana, Megan Trainor. SO I'm super pumped about this new one:

Current Focuses
+Getting healthier. I mean, I'm not all that bad...but I really want to make this more of a priority. And since nice weather isn't coming anytime soon, this is something I can control!
+Decluttering, updating and repairing around the house. Trying to flip into sell mode in the next year or so! Also googling around for new listings just 'cause...getting in that vibe!

Current Random Happenings
+ I recently had to exchange a Matilda Jane shirt for a new size, and it was low inventory so I asked home office to help me out - they agreed to ship out my replacement early if I gave them tracking for the one I was exchanging. All went well, until UPS LOST my replacement shirt, and then MJ sold out of them! Sob!!! I've had SO many calls from UPS to "just confirm" that I haven't received it so that they'll keep looking. After weeks of this (weeks), MJ swooped and said we got you, and they found another one to send me. Matilda Jane for the win!!!

+ I needed a new laptop for doing trunk shows and vendor shows because mine couldn't hold a charge or connect to any internet outside of my own house for some stupid reason. I always had to borrow Matt's and it was sometimes inconvenient. We weighed the options for weeks (about as long as UPS has been looking for my shirt), and one day Matt came home from work and handed me a macbook! lol There was a crazy sale on them and he rushed out after work and grabbed it for me. I LOVE IT! I'm still learning how to do a lot of's like a new world lol.

Current Guilty Pleasure
All the truffles. We got so many from Norman Love & Rocky Mountain on vacation.
The Arrangement. It's back on, and SO ridiculous, but I can't help but watch!!

Current Celebrity Crush

I'm about to start re-watching the first and last seasons of New Girl in prep for the final season, so I'm going to guess that I'll be all crushy on Nick. Or ya know, Jake Johnson.

Current Nail Color
I wore Essie's guilty pleasures on vacation and still have it on my toes (perfect vaca color!), but now that we're home, I'm back to as if & bon boy-age. They are great spring pastels!

Current Outfit
I will never not be in leggings and hoodies (THANKSBUFFALO.)
Just kidding...I'm actually starting the spring 10x10 challenge today despite Buffalo's awful least I think I am. haha. (more details to follow if I go through with it, lol)

Current Slang
I don't know that I have anything right now?

Current Drink
Coffeeeee, because I'm always freezing (THANKSAGAINBUFFALO), but I was pretty into unsweet tea in Florida. And margaritas. And I'm always loving a hot cuppa Buttermint or Chamomile before bed.

Current Food
Raspberries and kiwis. Not together.

Current TV Show
The Arrangement, General Hospital
I am SO EXCITED slash sad about the New Girl premier. This is going to be the most emotional season EVER!

Current App
Majong Tiles on my macbook

Current Pastime
Reading, playing majong tiles while I avoid chores, looking at houses online.

Current Wish List
-glass straws (like these maybe) because I love straws and feel bad using plastic ones
-a new broom. silly but it's just time.
-a pair of black denim skinnies. I dunno why, it just struck me that I want some lol. (these? these?)
-these wedge espadrilles in black
-the new hunters for target that come out soon...not sure which color yet!

Current Needs
I legitimately NEED nicer weather. Maybe this is dramatic, but it's about to be April and it's still lower 40's, upper 30's, gloomy, rainy, with a random snow flurry. I am not productive or motivated at all because it's just weighing on me. I neeeeed open windows and sunshine!!!

Current Bane of My Existence
Buffalo's weather. Shocking, I'm sure.

Current Quote
"Just sit there. Don't do a thing. Just rest. For this separation from God, from love, is the hardest work in this world." -Hafiz

Current Picture

I took this on the golf course in Florida, I love this lone tree!

Current Blessing
Coffee, MJ blankets, space heaters. (I might be bitter.)

Current Excitement
Being on spring break and not packing lunches for the next 10 days. Woot!

Current Mood
Tired. Desperate. Pale. (SO BITTER!)

  1. Glad you got a replacement top from MJ! yay!!!

  2. I love General Hospital too. Those Essie colors are great. Are they the new Spring colors? I haven't seen them out yet.

    1. Yay for GH!! I've been watching for 25 years! lol Only the green (bon boy-age) is new for the spring essie line. The blue (as if) is from fall last year, and I'm actually not sure on the other!! I've had it for a's actually hitting that, too yucky to go on smoothly phase haha
