Currently… (March 2018)

Hello! Hello!

After another weekend of warm weather, a cool rain is back today.  I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one wishing for a return of long lasting spring!

Other than the wonky weather, here are a few other behind the scenes tidbits from the last month!


Currently I’m…


I’m taking a book break and catching up on my magazines.  I ended canceling a bunch of them at the start of the year because I wasn’t keeping up, but I could not part with my beloved Southern Living.  Now I’m not much of a fancy cake baker like this but I REALLY want to try my hands at this gorgeous Hummingbird Cake.


This song captures my heart every time I hear it. πŸ™‚

Since I’m back to having full control of the remote with the Hubs working all the time during tax season, I’ve been plowing through the rest of Pretty Little Liars.  I felt like it got boring for awhile, but is interesting again!  I just finished season 5.

After I finish I’m really looking forward to watching the Dance Academy movie on Itunes.  The show on Netflix is one of my all-time favorite and I just stumbled on the movie which is a sequel to the show.  My former ballerina heart loves it.


I was digging though the closet in my office (which is a DISASTER) looking for something else when I found this bag!  I got it eons ago to use as a beach bag, but never look it with me to the beach because it is kind of clunky to stuff in a suitcase.  BUT I pulled it out and realized it is really more of a large purse size… so guess who will be carrying this all summer. πŸ™‚  Now I just need summer to arrive because I’m ready- haha!

This one is long sold out but I found a similar one HERE, HERE or HERE!  This smaller tote at Kohl’s is on sale for less than $20!



Y’all know I love my healthy, at home Mexican food.  I recently reshot my Sheet Pan Vegetarian Fajitas and the recipe is publishing tomorrow with the updated look and recipe.  I can’t wait to share!

I’ve been drinking this Tea Forte Lemon Lavender tea on repeat.  I found it on sale at TJMaxx in the food section!


So the Hubs eats Lucky Charms for breakfast.  I’ve tried to turn him onto other food, but I can’t.  So when I was shopping for his latest box I found THESE with magical unicorn marshmallows.  The entire box has this iridescent shine to it.  I only wish I had those when I was making my Unicorn Smoothie.  I’m fairly certain I’m going to be indulging on a few of those marshmallows just for fun. πŸ™‚  I’m pretty sure he will not mind.


Spring!  Makena can’t wait either.  She is so annoyed it’s raining again…. and I haven’t broken it to her that it might snow again.

Speaking of Makena I picked this up to try to do her nails.  I have a clipper but her nails don’t seem to have a lot to cut off before getting into the quick, so I thought this might help.  She is scratching my floors and it’s about to drive me crazy!

I’m also anticipating the bathroom FINALLY getting done.  They did the last of the grouting yesterday, which is a great sign.  Our countertop however came with a problem and we have to wait for another one to arrive, so I’m really hoping it’s not going to drag on much longer.  Do you guys want a little tour whenever it’s finally done… whenever that actually is?



For the Hubs.  He’ll be working super long hours between now and tax day on April 17th.  I’m just praying he gets done what he needs to get done without out too much stress or getting sick.


I’ve been doing a monthly Currently… post since August 2015.  Catch up HERE!  Thank you so much for reading today and for your comments.

    Julie! I love that bag! How perfect for summer!
    I will say some prayers for your hubby also! I know tax season is crazy!
    Hope spring weather finds you soon!

    Magical unicorn marshmallows?! That is so cool – though I don’t know if I could eat lucky charms for breakfast. I like sweet breakfasts but that’s pushing the envelope a little too far.

    That bag is so cute! Definitely one to use all summer long

      Yes! I don’t know how the Hubs stomach’s itin the morning– he does have a massive sugar tooth. I think I’ll enjoy a small bowl as a dessert. πŸ™‚

    I’m SO ready for spring! And I’d love to see your new bathroom! We’ve been slowly re-doing the kitchen (out of necessity) and it’s turning out so much better than I would have thought.

    Mmm… I LOVE fun cereals like lucky charms. My favorite are the Reese’s kind. πŸ™‚

    Those fajitas look delicious. Fingers crossed your bathroom is all done soon.

    Sure, I’m sure your blog followers will want
    a tour of the finished bathroom. I know I would
    like to see it. I’m sure you will be really happy
    once the work is completed ( smile ).

    That bag is so cute!! It’s the perfect summer bag for sure. Currently I’m counting down the days until warm weather. We’re getting another big snow storm here in New Jersey tonight/tomorrow.

    Best of luck to you both surviving tax season! I take Ridley to petco for her nails. I just aren’t even attempt that! Do you have Amazon Prime? I’m all up in that–tons of BBC shows!

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2018 at 3:19 pm - Reply

      YES! I have Amazon Prime and love British shows. Which ones do you watch??

    Ahh thank you so much for sharing that nail grinder! Cutting Kimber’s nails is a complete nightmare and I dread doing it so much! How did Makena like it?

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2018 at 3:19 pm - Reply

      I am going to try it this weekend and will report back!!! It has to be better than those damn clippers!

    I recently found my new favorite tea. Strawberry cheesecake by red rose. It is so flavorful that you don’t even need any milk or sugar for it. I love one sheet meals so easy!

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2018 at 3:17 pm - Reply

      Ohhh that sounds wonderful! I’ll be on the lookout for it!

    I’ve had similar issues with our dogs nails and they’re black so it’s hard to see the quick. I tried a battery trimmer but the batteries went quickly and the device slowed down so it wasn’t nearly as effective. My husband came up with a great solution and bought the sanding attachment for our Dremmel. It works like a dream! It’s inexpensive, quiet (ish) and no batteries required (it plugs in). If the one you bought doesn’t work great, try the Dremmel.
    I am also contemplating making the Hummingbird Cake. It looks so good!!

      Oh no! I’ll see what happens and try your idea if this doesn’t work. Thanks for the suggestion- I really appreciate it!

    Hi Julie! Enjoyed reading your blog. Can’t wait for the Fajita recipe! Also, did you know that Sarah has renewed her love for Lucky Charms as it has been available to her. Talk to you soon!

    • JulieWunder March 20, 2018 at 3:16 pm - Reply

      I hadn’t heard that yet! So funny what is available! Glad you had a good trip and thanks for stopping by today.

    Nice blog. Did you watch This is US? Unicorn Marshmallows? I know some people who would like that idea. Did you watch This is US? Love this series.
    I love magazines too but they got expensive and added to my clutter. A friend turned me on to I subscribe now for $9.99 and couldn’t be happier. So many magazines and I can get back issues too. Just a thought.
    That was a sad song. I hope they don’t take it off your blog. They? I don’t know who but when put songs on mine and go back later, I see they have been taken off and my blog post doesn’t make sense ????.
    The fajitas look yummy.
    Hope you have a nice day.

      I keep hearing great things about This is Us! It’s on my short list to start– thanks for the suggestion. YES- mine were just piling up and it was sad. Now I just need to part with the pile.
      I haven’t had trouble with it getting taken off… I load the code so they get credit for the views… not me… so hopefully it’s right!
      Hope you have a nice day too!
