Currently… (September 2015)

Happy Monday!

I hope you’all had a great weekend.  Was it chilly where you live?  It was so cool in Asheville yesterday!

Just a little reminder that my JUMBO giveaway is still going on here!  You can win shoes (of YOUR choice,) a running skirt, healthy ice cream, a massager, eye-wear retainers and travel dreams!  Something out of every main category on my site. There will be five winners, so don’t miss your chance.

For today’s post, I’m continuing my “Currently…” series.  I love sharing more personal tidbits of my life in these posts.  I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do putting them together!

Here is what I’m currently doing this September…

Reading…

Most of my free time has been used cleaning up old blog posts.

Here is a tip: expect a blog redesign to take ten times more time than you think.  Also don’t expect the launch to go perfect and don’t expect the work to end after the launch.  That is hard for me to accept, but it is the truth!  Thanks for continuing to hang with me while I work on my site speed!

I have been sneaking in a few evening reading session with this Danielle Steel book, A Perfect Life. {Amazon Affilate Link}

I bought it because the main character is a overworked TV journalist.  It was a quick, good read!

Listening…

You know I love me some Kenny Chesney!  I adore his new song and this video makes me want to go back to the Bahamas.  What a cool sea plane too!

Watching…

I’ve been so busy with the blog, I haven’t had much time to watch TV this month.  That’s a good thing because TV is in a serious rut right now!  I was so sad the Astronaut Wive’s Club was only a mini series.  I should have guesed when they jumped through several years of history in one show.

I did watch this…

The Unauthorized Full House Story

The Lifetime Unauthorized Full House Movie.  I was THE BIGGEST fan of this show growing up.  Any problem could be solved in thirty minutes or less!

Unfortunately this movie was a train wreck that I could not stop watching.

I am anxiously awaiting the new show Fuller House and really hoping its good.

Please don’t judge? 🙂

Wearing…

My denim vest.  It’s the perfect transition piece for fall.  More on that for Fashion Friday!

Anticipating…

All things fall.  With yesterdays weather I’m feeling ready to get out the fall decor.  It’s time… maybe this weekend.

Eating…

I’ve busted out the crock pot and made a new batch of this tomato soup.  It’s so easy, still feels a little summery, but is still perfect for fall.

Indulging…

Does watching that terrible Full House movie count as an indulgence?

If not… Ritas.

I’ve got to get my fix in for the season.

Praying…

My dear friend Melanie is on this list every time.  She is rocking her stem cell transplant in Chapel Hill.  It’s been filled with lots of ups and downs, but overall the transplant is taking and it is going as well as can be expected.

Melanie Isabella Chapel Hill

The hubs and I have flown down to visit her a few times.  This past time we brought our God daughter Isabella back to Asheville so she could go to school during the week.  She is such a joy!

Dreaming…

Of beach sunsets.  I live to see views like this.

I hope your week is off to a great start!  Tomorrow I’m talking about sidelining meat this football season with appetizers perfect for the next game.  Don’t miss it!

And of course, have a Marvelous Monday! Thanks for the linkup Katie.

Your turn!

What are you currently doing…?

    OMG, the Full House movie? I had no idea there was such a thing! And there is a new show coming out? What what?!

      I know! It’s this bad unauthorized movie– but I kind of loved it.

    There’s a lifetime movie about full house? WHAT?! I need to watch it – I don’t care how bad it is! haha – Sending good vibes to Melanie!

      That’s how I felt! My Brother (we obviously watched it together all the time) called to tell me I must watch it! I found it on demand.

      So much time! I’ve barely made a dent in the content! I spent a lot time re-categorizing because my old categories didn’t make a lot of sense!

    I can’t wait for Fuller House to air! I heard it was going to be a Netflix only series. I recorded the Unauthorized Full House… Haven’t watched it yet.
    My 9 year old had been watching Full House. She’s as obsessed as I was. Makes my heart smile.

      Say what? I’m going to have to get Netflix then… checking on it!

    Oh my gosh, I heard that the Full House movie was awful, thanks for confirming it! That’s so disappointing! I loved that show growing up!

    • JulieWunder September 16, 2015 at 4:46 pm - Reply

      Haha! Leave it to me to pick and watch the worst thing on TV. I have terrible taste in movies too 😉

    Such a cute denim vest, I was just thinking the other day I needed to break out my denim stuff again:)
    Okay, so I am a huge Kenny fan, I love Kenny, love that song too! Although I hadn’t seen that video until just now. I saw him in concert in August and I could seriously go to more, he’s awesome!
    I didn’t catch the LIfetime movie, but ya I am very much looking forward to the new full house:) I grew up on that show after school!

      Oh!!! I’ve seen him twice and loved every minute of it! Did you see he’s touring with Miranda and Sam Hunt next?

    Sending lots of positive vibes your friends way! I am totally digging this fall weather and the lack of humidity. Although it happened overnight (or so it seemed) I’m really happy to be back running in cooler temperatures 🙂 Hope you have a fabulous Monday!

      It did seem to happen so quickly this year! I kind of wanted to squeeze a week or two of summer out of the year!
