Currently… (August 2015)

Happy Wednesday guys!

Last month’s Currently post did so well, I thought I’d continue the fun into August!

Seriously– how is it August?

Currently I’m…

Reading…

All the blog posts.  I’m trying to go through some of my old post posts so they will categorize in the correct place when my fancy new site redesign launches.  That means ALL THE TIME is being spent on combing through the old stuff.

Listening…

I’m loving Maddie & Tae right now!  Such an inspiring song and I love their sound.

And can we talk about their clothes?  I want those dresses and an occasion to wear them.

Watching…

Astronauts Wives Club!  Both the hubby and I are into this one, which is always nice!  I’ve mentioned it a few times, but I’ve always been a little fascinated with the space program.  I also love the time period it is set in!

Wearing…

Dresses all the time!  Its too hot to wear anything else!

Now if only I could spend all my time frolicking through flower fields, I’d be a happy girl!  More from this post coming up Friday for Fashion Friday 🙂

Anticipating…

An upcoming beach trip! I think we finally figured out our plans for the August trip and I’m so excited. Details coming soon.

Eating…

Arctic Zero sent me some of their new chunky flavors and WOW I love them.  If you’ve never heard of them before, they actually make healthy ice cream!  These flavors have protein, fiber and are low cal.  My favorite is Cookie Dough Chip, but they are all amazing.  Only 75 calories a serving!  And if you want to go hog wild an eat the entire container it’s STILL only 300 calories.

Drinking…

Coconut flavored sparkling water like it is going out of style!

Indulging…

Watching this squirrel try to get into my squirrel proof feeder.  It’s a complete waste of time, but it makes me happy because he’s so funny.  I keep threatening to just go outside and feed him on the ground!  I feel bad for the bugger, but I’m glad he can’t destroy my bird feeder.

Praying…

My friend Melanie is still at the top of this list!  She had her stem cell transplant last month and is doing as well as can be expected.  She was released from the hospital this past weekend, but must stay in an apartment there for three more months.  We went to Chapel Hill to see her Sunday and it was so great to see her.  Leukemia treatments are filled with a lot of ups and downs, and she is facing it all with such an amazing attitude.  Any extra prayers you can send her are greatly appreciated.

Dreaming…

…and wishing that summer would last forever! I know it’s hot out there, but I can’t get enough of it.

I hope you are having an amazing week!  Check back tomorrow because I have another delicious shrimp grilling recipe with only six ingredients!

Your turn!

Answer any of the currently questions above….

    The cookie dough Arctic zero is my favorite too. After I tried it from what they sent me I went straight to the store and bought 3 more pints 🙂 Love that pic of you in the sunflowers! So pretty!

    I grew up in Brevard County, FL (after reluctantly leaving Colorado), and my dad worked as a photographer at the Space Center. He knew all the original astronauts, and took the official Apollo 14 portrait, which included Alan Shepard. Astronaut Wives Club is a little “soapy”, but it’s accurate in many ways, including some of the references to motels and restaurants in the Cocoa Beach area. These families were well known to all of us who lived down there.

    I can’t get enough of La Croix! I recently had the grapefruit flavor. I love the style of the 40’s/50’s too. Is that the time period that the show is based on?
    Excited for your beach trip!

      I love the grapefruit too! Astronaut wives is more the 60’s but super cute clothes.

    I’m dreaming for my beach vacation as well! I honestly cannot wait. I plan on soaking up all the rays and FINALLY be relaxed for AN ENTIRE WEEK!

    Sending good vibes to your friend. This was a great post! I might have to steal it 😀 I’ll give you props, obvi. And Coconut la Croix is money! I’m all about the maxi skirt right now.

    Maddie & Tae are such beautiful ladies with amazing voices. I could listen to them all day.

  11. Love Maddie and Tae! Also love that picture of you in all of the sunflowers – my favorite flower! Your friend is in my thoughts and prayers!

  12. I don’t like coconut water but love sparkling water. Maybe I would like those. I am going to check them out. I was wondering about Astronaut’s wives show. My guilty pleasure is Mistresses right afterwards.

      It comes in all different yummy flavors. My other favs are lime and grapefruit.

    What a fun post! I have never heard of Maddie & Tae. I’ll have to check them out. And yay for beach trips! Have so much fun.

    awesome!! Thankfully it’s August which means fall is closing in….currently eating a LOT of Cherry and Roma tomatoes from the garden…the only thing that did worth a hoot this year

    • JulieWunder August 12, 2015 at 8:44 pm - Reply

      I had a terrible garden year too! Such a bummer!

  16. Sounds like your current life situation is quite lovely! hehe. I’m curious to hear how you like Arctic Zero! Living in New England the local ice cream is soooo good this time of year but I’m on the hunt for a better pre-wedding alternative! Wives club has caught my eye so it’s good to know you’re a fan! I’ll give it a go!

    • JulieWunder August 12, 2015 at 8:43 pm - Reply

      I really liked the Artic Zero. It’s not as rich as real ice cream, but its a nice healthy alternative.

    I think this “currently post” is awesome !
    I agree that you should keep doing them.
    I will certainly remember your friend Melanie in my prayers.
