Hi guys!

Happy beautiful Monday.   I am dragging a bit today thanks to the Super Bowl.  I’m going to start lobbying for a 4PM game time!  Who’s with me? lol!

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and let’s get to business!

Currently I’m…


I blew through two totally random books in Key West… Hemingway’s Key West

… and Procrastinate on Purpose.

I picked Hemingway’s Key West because I enjoy reading historical books about places I visit.  It was a really, really fast read though and I was left bookless mid-trip.  The Hubs brought Procrastinate on Purpose and I swiped it from him while he was reading his flying magazines.   I mentioned in my post about my words of the year, that one of my goals for 2017 was to use my time more efficiently and this book really touched on that.  It was another fast, easy read for anyone looking to make the most out of their time.  It is very business oriented, but the principles can apply to most things you are doing.

Next up, I’m anxious to get my hands on the next Nicolas Sparks book, Two by Two.  It’s based in Charlotte.


I’m still listening to Kenny Chesney’s new album on repeat.  This song takes me back to the Abacos… specifically Pete’s Pub if you’ve ever been blessed enough to explore that little area of paradise :-).  I believe a repeat of this trip is in the works for late spring and I could not be more excited.


The Hubs and I just finished watching the Man in the High Castle together.  The basis of the show is what the world would be like if the Germans and Japanese won WWII and it is really intriguing.  It got a little slow in the middle, but picked up again at the end.  I think it’s still worth watching though, especially if you like history or period tv.  It’s on Amazon Prime.

By myself I’m finally diving into Parenthood! I got so many suggestions to try it and I’m glad I did.  Such a lovely little show.

With the Hubs work schedule picking up again, I’ll be watching a lot more tv shows by myself.  Does anyone have any suggestions?


My new leather coat on repeat.


Blue Apron!  With going out of town and dealing with some stuff in Chattanooga, I’ve been struggling keeping up with all the household stuff.  Blue Apron has saved the day more than once!  I’ve been enjoying their boxes… which mean I don’t have to grocery shop or meal plan for a few days… woop!

All the tea.  I’ve been on a bit of a hot tea binge since the holidays.  It’s breakfast tea in the morning and peppermint tea later in the day.  I got this really tasty Dean and Deluca Peppermint Tea in January’s  POPSUGAR Must Have Box and I’ve been loving it so much.  (I’ve been receiving these boxes as part of an ongoing partnership) It tastes good and seems to calm my mind and body, which is wonderful.

Check out all the other goodies that came in this month’s box too.  I’m really excited to try the face mask!

Focusing on…

I’ve been really spending some time working on Makena’s training lately.  She is such a wild puppy and is quickly approaching 30 pounds.  Her antics were cute at 10 pounds and maybe even 20… but at 30 I feel like we really need to control her more.

It’s a lot of hard work but as I mentioned Friday we are making progress!


After Christmas and a Key West, I’m honestly not indulging in much.  I’ve been focusing on eating clean and getting my workouts in.  I guess it’s just that time of year!


OH MY! I have no words for this movie trailer.  The kid in me is beyond excited about this movie and I’ve already told the poor Hubs that we must see it in the theater.

On the other spectrum have you seen the preview for A Dog’s Purpose?  There is no way in the world I can see that movie… the preview had me balling in seconds.  Like, huge tears… not pretty balling.  I’m way to sensitive about my dogs getting older and am totally skipping that one.


I’ve been praying for lots of things but a little peace and calmness is at the top of my list right now.  Wishing you some peace on this Monday as well!


Thank you so much for reading today!  Tomorrow I’ll be sharing more about Blue Apron.

I’m linking up with Marvelous Monday!

Your turn!
