It’s the end of July… what a busy month for me: we moved and my baby turned one! (I’ll have a birthday party post soon, I promise.) Just to lighten things up around here, I thought I’d join in on the What I’m Into fun. To see other posts like this, check out Leigh Kramer’s What I’m Into link-up.
Wearing…my summer capsule wardrobe, inspired by the blogs Unfancy and Kapachino. I created it almost exclusively out of clothes I already owned, and it is making it exceedingly clear to me that I need to go shopping! But I’m trying to be good and hold out until fall. (That’s part of the capsule wardrobe concept — you only shop 4 times a year.) I really want to blog about it, because there isn’t a lot out there about capsule wardrobes for people who work in a business environment, but I haven’t quite figured out how to photograph everything. I’ll work on it.
Listening…Shazammed recently: Come Get It Bae, Pharrell Williams, I’m Ready, AJR. Favorite new podcast: Marriage Start-up. Favorite radio show: Old School Lunch Hour…90’s rap and hip hop, need I say more?
Watching…When do people find time to watch TV? Seriously… I’m not one of those no-TV snobs, I actually like TV! I miss it. Other than my beloved SYTYCD, I haven’t watched anything in weeks. I never even finished Season 2 of Orange is the New Black!
Reading…Shotgun Lovesongs by Nikolas Butler and Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner. Everyone raves about Crossing to Safety, but can I admit that I’m enjoying the other book more? It just has a more compelling storyline.
Fitness-ing…I started Mutu recently to work on my diastasis recti (ab separation) problem. It’s slow going, but I think it is helping. I’ve also been taking advantage of the beautifully cool weather we’ve been having, and running a couple days a week on my lunch break.
Thankful for…my sister, who I can call or text about anything from figuring out what to make for dinner to major life-stress-freakouts. She is awesome, and always calms me down with some practical and funny advice.
Planning…to move more of our stuff and get more permanently situated in our new home very soon, since my son will be starting preschool there in mid-August.
Drinking…Mount Hagen Organic Cafe instant coffee. Yes, I said instant. Because of the two-house living situation that my husband and I are in right now, there are a lot of mornings when I’m the only coffee drinker in the house and it just seems like a waste to make a whole pot of coffee. This stuff is amazingly good for instant coffee. And it’s awesome for iced coffee, too. I also started brewing kombucha again. I need to get some juice to flavor it — it’s pretty strong straight up!
Looking forward to…working from home a couple of days a week starting very soon! I think I’ll be super productive without so many interruptions at the office, and it will be awesome not to have to commute every single day.
