Currently… (July 2016)

Hi friends!

It’s time for a fun series I like to call Currently…

Currently I’m…

Reading…

I sadly haven’t had a ton of time for reading and am still loving Pat Conroy, Lords of Discipline.  I’m hoping to dive into it more this week.

 

Listening…

 

I’ve been just adoring this song.  It’s so sweet!

Watching…

The Hubs and I finally finished watching Breaking Bad and just wow.  Wow.

I’m so glad we stuck with the series.  It was the most interesting thing I’ve ever seen on TV.  I don’t want to say much to ruin it for anyone who hasn’t seen it, but it is totally worth seeing.

We are now in search of a new show.  We started Just Call Saul but found it kind of boring.  We also started Mad Men, which seems a little more promising but the Hubs doesn’t love it.

Suggestions for stuff we’d both like?

 

Wearing…

All the summer hippie dresses!!

Outer Banks

And spinning in them… because I can.

 

Eating…

Watermelon like it’s my job.  And making salsa out of it!

5 ingredient recipe for Watermelon Salsa

MUH-HAAAAA!!! Did you miss this post last week?  If you did, head over and check it out.  I’ll be waiting for you to come back….

Also have you guys tried the Watermelon Feta Salad at Panera yet?  It’s legit!

 

Drinking…

This Vinho Verde.

The Hubs and I discovered this wine when we first started dating and it always brings up such good memories for me.  It’s light, crisp and slightly effervescent.  Such a lovely drink on a hot summer day.  It’s generally pretty cheap too, so I highly recommend it.

 

Indulging…

Is it fair to say I’m indulging in summer?  I’m just trying to soak of every last minute of my favorite time of year.  Give me that extra 10 minutes in the hot sun, flip flops, fresh vegetables and crisp white wine.

Shear bliss.

 

Praying…

Don’t mean to go all beauty pageant contestant on you… but for the world.  I’m afraid to turn on the news in the morning anymore to see what terrible thing as happened.  Feels like the world is going a little crazy lately.  Praying for all that and more.

 

Have a wunderful day everyone.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Come back tomorrow for a fresh Mango Salsa recipe including a video of my favorite kitchen hack– the mango cup trick!

 

I’m linking up with Marvelous Monday!

Your turn!

Answer one of the Currently… prompts above.

    Oh I’ve loved that song since the first time I heard it. It’s one of those songs you can just close your eyes and imagine your own life and smile.
    Oddly I’ve never gotten into the Breaking Bad series, but I do hear it is amazing! I wish I had a little more TV time, but right now it’s not gonna happen:(
    Fresh Strawberries that’s my thing in the summer!

      Isn’t it? So pretty! Breaking Bad was one of the craziest most intense things I’ve ever watched…. but WOW it was good.

  2. I just starting reading the Daniel Silva book I love him. Now just to find the time to finish it. Loving all my fresh fruits and veggies. Have a great week

  3. My son just started watching BB again, and he reminded me of why it is such a good show. And how it ruined all TV for me–because that is the standard by which I measure all shows!

    With you on the bad news every day. It’s so bad. I’ve stopped watching the news. I can’t take it any more.

  4. LOVE From the Ground Up. Gives me all the feels. I’m glad you stuck with BB because it is SUCH a good show. We loved Better Call Saul, but I think if we had watched it RIGHT after watching Breaking Bad it would have definitely been boring in comparison.

      Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll have to try it and maybe take a break before Better Call Saul.

    As soon as I saw you talking about watermelon I was like, you HAVE to try the Panera salad! It’s so yummy! But you already did 😉 I didn’t like it with the greens though, they distracted from the best flavors.

    Have you watched Friends and Grey’s Anatomy?

    • JulieWunder July 27, 2016 at 4:30 pm - Reply

      Hi Meagan! I was a little worried I wouldn’t like the greens, but I actually loved it. I liked the grains they put in it too! I have seen friends and Grey’s! So good!

    OOh, I would love to see your mango hack. I can really mangle a mango, if I don’t do it right. And all the watermelon salsa just sounds so delicious. You look so beautiful in those summer dresses.

    All about the GIANT homegrown zucchini 😀
    And I am with you. I try to balance staying informed with staying positive. Right now, it feels like the two are exclusive…

    What! Did you just say Casal Garcia? Oh my gosh. That has been one of my favorite spirits for over ten years, but been hard to find in previous years. It’s like a hidden gem. I’ve been eating watermelon like a crazy person as well. So yummy in the summer months! And I seriously need to start watching Breaking Bad. I think both the hubs and I would love it.

      Oh yes! Love that stuff. If I see a bottle I have to buy it. I found those at Trader Joes for super cheap!

  9. Currently I’m reading everything by Mira Grant that I can get my hands on. I read her Newsflesh trilogy and loved it so much I immediately downloaded all her e-book novellas set in that same world. Her next book in that series won’t come out until October, so now I’m getting started on other things she’s writted.

    Love fresh fruit in the summer.

    I am currently reading Fast Girl, it is pretty good. I love watermelon but never had it in a salsa. I have made strawberry salsa.

      I’ve heard great things about Fast Girl! Thanks for making the strawberry salsa!

    Can you believe that I still haven’t finished watching season 1 of Breaking Bad? We are SO far behind. I am planning on watching it when baby arrives and I am up all night feeding.

      Ohhhhh… you just have to keep watching! It gets better!

    Drinking…in this hot weather, water,, lots of it, other than that…Palmetto Pale Ale….great taste, easily in my top 5

    Julie-
    We get our TV watching recommendations from our adult children who have yet to steer us wrong…they suggested Breaking Bad which I agree was the greatest.
    Another of their suggestions was Justified. I L.O.V.E.D. it!
    (My husband didn’t like Mad Men either;–)

    With the unseasonably high temps predicted for the next few days it will be good to stay inside and binge watch;–)
    Enjoy the rest of your summer.

    • JulieWunder July 27, 2016 at 4:23 pm - Reply

      Hi Gail! We’ll have to try L.O.V.E.D. One of the Hubs friends recommended House of Cards too.

      • Gail Bell July 27, 2016 at 5:07 pm - Reply

        The series is called JUSTIFIED;–)

    Literally hate turning on the news- more shootings this morning! I cannot take it! I’m indulging in all the summer fruits. Watermelon does not last long in this house!!
