eating…homemade acai bowls. I know I’m kind of behind here and while I’ve only had one prior to purchasing the little packets at the store, I’ve been eating them regularly in the morning. A little plant based protein, banana, granola and blueberries on top makes for the the perfect post gym breakfast.

drinking…Anything grapefruit flavored. La Croix, Perrier, beer, greyhounds. Grapefruit is my new thing.

watching…The Bachelorette. I tuned in for like three episodes a few seasons back because I knew someone on the show, but that was as far as my Bachelor/Bachelorette viewing went. I was beginning to feel left out because I’m pretty sure EVERYONE else watches it. So I’m tuning in. I wouldn’t say I’m sucked in, but we’ll see. I’d still take a Real Housewives of anywhere over it 🙂

going…No where too soon. We’ve finally decided on some dates to go back to Michigan in July, so I have that to look forward to. Until then, we are stuck here in the god awful heat of summer. Help.

reading…To Kill A Mockingbird. I had a goal to read a book a month this year and this is only my third book, so that’s not working out to well. My point is that I knew I needed another book, but had no idea what I wanted to read. I saw To Kill A Mockingbird sitting on our shelf and since I haven’t read it since high school (which I’m pretty sure I didn’t reeeaaallly read it) I thought it would be a good book to pick up. The hype is worth it so far.

loving…These shorts I picked up from Loft over the weekend. I’m sure I’ve mentioned numerous times on here that I loath wearing shorts. I hate the way the majority of them fit (when it’s too tight in the thighs it’s like my worst nightmare)and it’s super rare when I find a pair I am absolutely obsessed with. The length, the fit and the fabric are all perfection. They are currently 50% off making them only like $26, so if you hate tight, short shorts I recommend giving these a try. I bought this striped pair and this black fringe pair.

working…On trying to finish my office. I was FINALLY able to convince Brand that the then “Michigan Room” needed to become my office since blogging from bed was annoying. It’s still a little bit of a mess, but the football memorabilia is gone and the navy blue walls are no more, so it’s progress.

listening…A variety of stuff, I guess. Mostly my workout playlist because it’s the first thing on my phone in the morning and then automatically syncs when I get in my car. It’s a good mix of Justin Beiber, Drake, Chris Stapleton, Rihanna (although I must remove that Werk song), so yea nothing you all haven’t heard of 🙂

buying…Clothes. I’ve noticed lately how horrible I am with impulse purchases when it comes to clothes. I mean I’m not like out of control, but there are definitely some things I NEED (like new black & nude pumps), but I always end up purchasing something I want instead. I need some self control.

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

planning…Our one year anniversary weekend. How it has already been a year (june 20th) is beyond me, but I’m excited it’s here. We just went to Mexico in April and are going to Michigan in July, so we aren’t doing anything crazy (should have planned that Mexico trip better). I’m thinking just a little staycation somewhere in town. Just so it’s a little more special than just another night at home. We shall see.

wondering…why I stopped doing these posts. I love these little updates and it’s definitely a nice change from all the outfits. I’m still really struggling with the 3x/week posts and I’m seriously considering switching back. My problem is that I feel like I’ve been able to focus a bit more and every.single.night isn’t consumed with working on a post, but then I feel like I have more to share than 3x/week allows me. Maybe we should try 4? ha. I’ll figure it out.

feeling…content, I guess. There aren’t really any overwhelming feelings that I am experiencing right now, so I guess that’s a good thing, right?

Hope you are all having a great week!
