Currently.

Soo…I’ve been seeing these ‘Currently’ posts up around blog land (I love that it’s called that.) and I thought I’d join in on the fun! Also, I want to post about something other than food today ๐Ÿ˜‰

Current Book

A Thousand Sistersย by Lisa Shannon. This book is remarkable, its a true story chronicling 5 months that Shannon spent in Congo, listening to the stories that the women, children, and other victims of violence during the war in Congo had endured. It is very powerful.

Current Music

Disney Pandora. All day, every day ๐Ÿ˜€ And yes, I sing along. My neighbors love me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Current Guilty Pleasure

Okay, I was going to say something slightly cheesy likeย lazy summer mornings,ย but lets be real. Lately my guilty pleasure has beenย attention see (girl talk time), now I’m up to a weight that I am starting to have a figure other than that of an 11 year old, and my neighborhood has plenty of young teenage (and older teenage) boys. So I’ve gotten a couple of cat calls and “nice butt”s whilst running or walking my doggies. I always act disgusted and avoid eye contact, but secretly, I don’t mind. Man, I feel like a woman (ish) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Current Nail Color

Kiki from Zoya. I literally just painted my nails, hence the messiness. I paint my whole finger to make sure the nail part is perfect, the rest comes off later ๐Ÿ˜‰ please tell me I’m not the only one!

Current Drink

I defy summer and drink tea even at 2:00 in the afternoon! Its a new to me flavor, and Iย have a feeling I’ll like it better cold. Fruity tea tastes like watered down juice to me. Iced fruity tea on the other hand is delicious! Especially sun tea.

Current Food

This is basically my latest obsessions. Yes, I still eat my oats and my greens, but lately I’ve been lovin on the sweet potatoes (have you tried topping them with almond butter? Divine!), summer fruit by the (cereal or larger) bowlfulls, chocolate almonds and Cinnamon Crunch (the organic, ‘healthy’ cinnamon toast crunch from Cascadian Farms.)

Fun Fact! Rarely do I eat a bowl of cereal (i.e. with milk for breakfast). However, as a topping and as a munchy movie snack, its my favorite.

Current Favorite TV Show

I decided to watch So You Think You Can Dance this season and I must say, I do enjoy it! Its like a more interesting, less receptive American Idol, and some of the dancers are just breathtaking.

Fun Fact!! I danced at the same studio that Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval (season 7) started at! He once helped ‘teach’ one of my ballet classes for the day, but mostly everyone was just cracking up. I also go to the same high school he went to ๐Ÿ™‚

Current Wish list

All of the clothes!!! Every time I go to the mall, it’s like a reminder of what great fashion instinct I have, and how (comparatively and relatively) little I have to spend on those clothes. Either everything should be free, or I need to get a job.ย sigh…

Current Needs

More henna so I can re-dye my hair!! Its faaaadddiiinnggg!!!! I want my bright red haaiiiirrrrrr back!

Current Triumphs

Check out that plank! Okay, so it wasn’t all a ‘normal’ plank, because I break it up by doing like, 1 or 2 minutes normal, then a minute per side and keep changing it up, but still. Thats awesome.

Current Bane of my Existence

Two blisters from my new running shoes. I love the shoes, but they aren’t broken in yet!!! Also, if you pop a blister, do it after you shower. Never has water been so painful. (sorry)

Current Celebrity Crush

Need I say more??

Current Indulgence

I baked a triple batch of brownies for a potluck today. Of course I licked the bowl! And maybe had aย lot few chocolate chips on the side ๐Ÿ˜‰ testing for poison, obvs.ย 

Current Blessing

Beautiful Summer evenings and walks with my Sophie ๐Ÿ™‚ Its been absolutely lovely lately. Only in the upper 80’s!!

Current Outfit

Sweat pant shorts and a production shirt for Bye Bye Birdie. No picture for this one, its my jammies haha!

Current Excitement

Can I have multiple??

I got new shooeeesss:D

Also I am leaving in a few days for a COLLEGE ROADTRIP!!! Gonna go down to southern California to visit potential colleges! (and beaches, you know ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). So excited!!

Current Mood

sleepy. This is the second time I’ve sat down to write this, and its 11:00 pm. I know, I know, I’m such a night owl ๐Ÿ˜‰

Current Link

Hannah’s American snack food review.

Its just so hilarious, yet so true. Although I have to admit, sometimes I wonder what those things (cupcake pop tarts/goldfish) would taste like were I not vegan. And against food dye and chemicals. And the American Food industry. I’m too cynical. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What are your ‘currentlys’? Answer any of the above!!ย

    Haha, I LOVED this post and I just spent the last 20-30 minutes stalking your whole blog, reading your posts. I didn’t get the chance to read a ton of blogs during the school year because I was always busy, and I didn’t get to check yours out that much, but now that I’m just in a super relaxed state of mind… reading your blogs was JUST what I needed! Your writing style is just so fun, and it’s like talking to a friend! Love it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I also really REALLY love the idea of this post, so I MAY have to copy you.. Because I also really wan to share my new celebrity crush. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s not Ryan Gosling (although I have a board dedicated to him with those “Hey Girl” memes on Pinterest! haha!), but it’s someone just as yummy, in my opinion. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Just wanted to drop by and leave a comment, telling you how much I LOVE your blog and will definitely be dropping in more often and leaving comments, so sorry if I start seeming like a blog stalker! xD Can you and I please start chatting and becoming blog bffls please? lol, I’m so weird, but it’s like I love you so much already since it seems like you and I have SO much in common! ..and it excites me and makes me weird and creepy.. xD

    Have an AWESOME day!

    P.S. Congrats on your 8-minute plank!!! CRAZAY. I personally think that going on your sides and everything is harder, so KUDOS to you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Katieeeee!!!!! Thank you Im so glad that you got the chance to stop by!! I totally get what you mean, thank goodness for summer! And go ahead and copy me, thats what I did (lol). You are so sweet and I would LOVE to be your bbffl ๐Ÿ™‚ I mean, who else uses as many exclamation points and smily faces in their writing?! ๐Ÿ™‚ haha! You have an amazing day as well! (okay if we are bffls Im going to talk to you like my friends in regular land-aka not blog land) Have and amazing day full of rainbows and unicorns and sparkly flowers!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ hahaha

  3. That book sounds wonderful; I think I saw it at our library the other day…Maybe I will try to read it at some point. Disney music is the best; I love listening to all those songs!! And I love your “guilty pleasure” story–it made me laugh. I think it’s awesome that you feel more confident about your body, and I don’t think there is necessarily anything wrong with feeling pleased by the attention–even if it IS rather immature of those boys:) I have tried sweet potatoes with almond butter once, and they definitely WERE delicious. It is an amazing combination. I enjoy watching SYTYCD as well, though I am sometimes irritated by the emphasis placed on the drama and the judges’ reactions. Most of the dancers are fantastic, but I think the whole show is too glamorized. Still, I shouldn’t complain–I could never dance half as well as most of them! Me trying hip-hop would not be a pretty sight…I made some vegan brownies today as well; I have been craving chocolate like crazy recently. I am sure yours were delicious. I hope you have a fantastic road trip; it sounds like so much fun!

  4. I love your guilty pleasure story! I always think that guys just don’t like me, but I think I’d get more male attention if my body wasn’t preteen-like. Definitely something for me to think about!

    I do the exact same thing when I paint my nails! It always looks a little weird, but once it dries I just pick off the polish around the edges and it looks perfect…at least until it chips the next day…
