It’s that time of the month again! Let’s catch up on what’s going on “Currently”…
Prepping for the Lionel Ritchie concert (O-M-G… Amazing show!), I bought Lionel’s Tuskegee album, which is a compilation of duets with major country music stars. Think Endless Love with Shania and Stuck on You with Darius Rucker… So good!
Current Guilty Pleasure:
Planning for my trip to Fitbloggin, I did a little
too much shopping. And, I stumbled into Charming Charlie’s. Seriously, don’t ever go just at that moment when it starts to rain… you’ll buy way too much. You’ll have way too much time to look at all their treasures. You’ll even insist on walking out wearing one of the necklaces you like the most.
Current Nail Color:
This week, I switched my polish. I’m rocking the Lapis of Luxury… a pretty, pretty periwinkle by Essie. And, I kinda love it…
Savignon Blanc… Still obsessed and it goes down like water for some unfortunate reason. I drank a few glasses at the cute little Truffle Table this week with the ladies. Loved it.
This chicken. I could eat it every day for some time and not get sick of it. And, it’s so pretty plated up. My next dinner party… yes, this is what we are eating!
Also… Pssssst! I’m a finalist in the Fitbloggin California Avocado Cutting Edge Culinary recipe contest and will find out later today what I win! Will keep you posted…
Current Favorite Show:
True story: I don’t really like TV. I think there are so many other things to do rather than watch it… I don’t watch any of the hip shows. I just watch my old standbys and if I miss them, I really don’t worry too much.
But… there’s talk that me and a few of my gal-pals are going to go see Sound of Music at the Ellie Caulkins Theater in Denver, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!!! Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, after all…
Oh, if I look back at this month and the recent Fitbloggin shopping… there’s a lot of fun dresses that came out of recent trips. After all, my favorite conference of the year has me traveling to the sweaty surface of the sun… so a girl’s gotta be breezy in some dresses.
Nordstrom Rack: I didn’t realize you were so dangerous. Well played.
I told you earlier that I don’t watch TV… and now, well… I’m confessing that I am SO not a pet person. But I met this dog, and it’s weird. I just like her.
Her name is Lucy and I spotted her at the Hanuman Festival last weekend… and since then I’ve been running into little French bulldogs everywhere. Is this a sign??
Current Online Find:
These aren’t new finds for me, but I thought I’d share two of my Fitbloggin faves with you that you need to start reading NOW! This is just a sneak peek of what’s to come next week when I leave Fitbloggin and begin gushing over the fab people I’ve met. In the meantime, meet Alyssa and Ashley!
Have you met Alyssa from Double Chin Diary? yet? Well… she’s agreed to room with me at Fitbloggin this year, and didn’t really expect me to bring the luggage that I did, surely. Her story (along with her sister April’s) is awesome, inspiring and always teaches me something new, while at the same time making me realize I really should live near the coast.
Another MUST-READ is Fierce Forward. If you haven’t met the lovely Ashley yet… watch out, because she is incredibly fierce and fiercely authentic. Her warm and bright spirit makes her a pleasure to be with… and I love her rocker style. So hippie chic, and I’m so glad to call her a friend. I got to see her and new friend Meagan at the Hanuman Festival last weekend, and so excited to be spending time with her again in Savannah!
These are just two of many men and women I’ll be visiting with at Fitbloggin… I’ll share more in my recap!
Current Words of Inspiration:
This simple phrase is one I utter daily. When I wake up in the morning, I verbalize that I am grateful for things that are yet to happen. “I’m grateful that I had a great day.” “I’m grateful that my presentation went well…” etc.
And every day, at the end of the day, I get to smile and appreciate again in reflection how great the day was. Try it… it works.
