Currently: August (My Bday Month)


Hey there Sunshine!  Hope everyone has been enjoying their summer.  In my last Currently post, you were able to see how much I was enjoying mine.  Things have started to slow down and I am preparing to return back to work.  But before all of the stress of work kicks in why don’t you check out what I’m currently up to!

This month, Anne In Residence and co-host Shea of Shea Lennon brought us these wonderful prompts to discuss and its not to late for you to join it if you choose.


Snacking (on):  Chobani Flips!  I absolutely love this brand of Greek yogurt!  It is the perfect snack to satisfy my cravings for something sweet with a little flair!  🙂  They have many flavors to choose from and these two are a few of my favs!  My absolute favorite is Almond Coco Loco.  M’mm, M’mm GOOD!!!  You can check out all the flavors they provide here.


Anticipating:  My birthday celebration!!! Insert floating balloons!  I’ll be 46 next week (August 10) AND I don’t have to work on my birthday this year!  I am going to live it up!  I have a friend throwing a party for me and I can’t wait!

Borrowing:  I had to borrow some grated Parmesan cheese when I was in the middle of cooking one night.  I had my son go next door to the neighbor who I knew would have exactly what I needed.  Love my neighbors!

Admiring: This wall piece from RecycledMe Creations.  I follow them on Instagram and love their work.  I can already picture one of these on my living room wall.  

Purchasing:  Movie tickets!  Over the past two weeks, I have seen War for the Planet of the Apes and Girl Trip.  I’m no movie reviewer, but I would give both of these movies 5 stars! If you haven’t seen them, you should go check them out.  You will not be disappointed.

Next month, I’m excited to be co-hosting the link-up with Anne.  So be sure to join us on September 6 to share what you’re currently celebratingwatchingwelcomingpreparing, and photographing.

So what are you currently up to?

  1. Happy Birthday! I want to see both of those movies, but my husband doesn’t. He is going on a business trip next week, so maybe I’ll do a doubleheader.


  2. Yeah, birthday months! And having the day off on your birthday is the best. Also, how have I never tried these Chobani flips? I eat a regular Chobani probably every day… Looking forward to having you co-host next month!


  3. I love that you borrowed an ingredient from your neighbors! Is it sad that I wouldn’t have even considered that and I would have just gone to the store or done without? I really need to get to know my neighbors. Also, I’ve never tried the Chobani Flips, I need to!


    1. Yes! My neighbor “M” is so awesome! She is Italian and I just knew she would have the Parmesan. She asked me which kind I need because she had whole block, sliced, and grated! I don’t know all of my neighbors, but it has helped that we have community events so we can connect. At least when I first moved in.


    1. Thanks for the birthday wishes Lauren. It’s been a month of ups and downs with work changes and my birthday in between it all squeezing in some good moments. I am taking it in stride and wishing for the best and praying for a successful school year. 🙂


      1. Mine is the 31st so I am a Virgo. My lil foster kiddo is 8/10 as well. I will always remember yours. 🙂
        I did find a new car. Its around 2300-ish. She hasn’t found a replacement yet so we are kind of have a proposition/contongency clause.
        Have a blessed week!

  4. Happy Birthday Month! 🙂
    I want to see Girl’s Trip!! My dad and his wife have already seen it. 😀 I need to get on the ball. Last week was our wedding anniversary we went to see The Big Sick, it was SO good. I felt like a teen again, because that same weekend we went to the movies for a second time this time with the kids, we FINALLY watched Wonder Woman.
    Wishing you all the best this year and always, my sweet friend!

    1. Thanks Dean! I have seen a lot of movies recently, but I go through spells. The last time was February and before that, I think it was a whole year. Sad isn’t it. lol…Thanks for always being a supportive friend and I hope you guys are settling in and the kids have a great school year! I know you are glad to be closer to family!
