The end of another month is here already, and its time to talk about what I’ve been up to this month! To see other posts like this (or to join in the fun!), check out Leigh Kramer’s What I’m Into link-up.
Wearing…the same things over and over. Yawn! I seriously need a spring/summer wardrobe update, since I was exclusively in maternity clothes last spring and summer. What is even in style these days? Lace? Big oversized tops? I’m so clueless. And how in the heck do you dress stylishly for summer in a business casual office? Even Pinterest doesn’t know! (I think I need a cardigan intervention.) I’ve got a Stitch Fix coming soon and Banana Republic gift card burning a hole in my pocket! To be continued…
Listening…Shazammed recently: Tree to Grow by The Lone Bellow, All of Me by John Legend, and Down to You by Session Americana.
Watching…season finales of a few shows. Oh my goodness, the Scandal finale was good! It almost seemed like it could be a series finale, which would make me sad.
Reading…mostly kids books (Penguin in Peril and Brimsby’s Hats — whoever recommended these on their blog, you win), but I just started Found by Micha Boyett after winning it in a blog giveaway and we’re reading The Meaning of Marriage by Tim Keller for my church small group. I also got The Nesting Place decorating book for myself, which I’m looking forward to diving into.
Fitness-ing…I’ve been running a couple days a week and doing some physical therapy work for my core. I have a separate post coming about this soon, but for now let’s just say that I am in full-on attack mode against the baby belly. Because of that focus, I haven’t been able to do a lot of my normal workout stuff. I miss it! Hopefully I will be back soon.
Thankful for… finally getting a (very positive!) resolution to my husband’s job situation. We’ve known a change was coming for a while, but we didn’t know what it would be, so it is wonderful to finally just know.
Planning…what we need to set up a second household! I am a minimalist at heart, so I love the idea of having only half our stuff left in our house. We will have to get some extra beds, though. =)
Cooking…lots of veggies and rice as I participate in the Spring Reset (a three week elimination diet, but my main concern is getting my sugar consumption under control. So far it’s going really well, but oh my, the cravings are strong!) Chicken coconut curry, chopped salad with lemon tahini dressing (I could drink this stuff!), and an improvised veggie noodle stir fry with Gado Gado (Thai peanut) sauce have been favorites.
Drinking…tea! We broke the glass carafe to our coffee maker recently, and haven’t replaced it yet. In the meantime, I’ve switched to drinking hot tea in the mornings and I’m really enjoying it. I will never fully give up my beloved coffee, though.
Looking forward to…my husband graduating from his masters program. He won’t actually finish classes until August at the earliest, so we’re still trying to figure out if he will be able to walk in the May graduation ceremony. He’s been slowly chipping away at his degree for 8 years, so I can barely even remember what it’s like to have a spouse who isn’t working full time and taking 1-2 classes a semester. (Yes, it is the Bataan Death March of masters degrees — 96 hours!)
What are you looking forward to in May? What’s your favorite part of your spring/summer wardrobe?
