Currently, I love that it’s a long weekend. I love leisurely afternoons. I love warm days that are not hot, and that the sun shines late into the evening. There’s not much I don’t love about this weekend, so indulge me as I tell you what’s going on currently.
And, who doesn’t love Justin Timberlake introducing May. Truly one of my most favorite memes out there, I love seeing the many versions of it pop up in late April/May…
I haven’t really read any new books this month, but I have downloaded two with great intentions. I’ve got Wonder on my shelf to read. I spotted the trailer for the new movie with Julia Roberts based upon the book, and I felt the need to read it first!
I also snagged Lena Dunham’s memoir as well, but Wonder is definitely next on my list. Hoping to tackle it before the new Elin Hildebrand is released in June.
CURRENT CLOSET CLEANOUT
I am obsessed with Poshmark this month. Cleaning out my closet has been long on my list, but I didn’t realize how much fun (and how easy!) it could be. I’ll post more this week about how it works, because it’s such a cool app.

CURRENT REMAKE NIGHTMARE
I knew when I heard that Dirty Dancing was going to be remade that it was going to be something that I hate-watched. I mean, I would have to watch it… because Dirty Dancing, but that didn’t mean I had to like it. The question I have for network TV is: Why mess with perfection? It just doesn’t work. Did you guys watch this?
CURRENT VEGETABLE STAPLE
Sugar snap peas… they’re incredible roasted. Try it.
Peonies. White ones, pink ones… I can’t get enough of them. Someone enlighten me as to why these are only around for like 2 weeks a year. They are purely lovely… and my absolute favorite. #1 Peonies, #2 Tulips.
CURRENT PAINT PICKING
I have paint chips all over my house and a strong desire to have a fresh coat of paint on these walls. From the living room to the office to the bathroom, there’s little squares of Sherwin Williams everywhere. Good news: I believe I’ve finally made a decision!
CURRENT HOME IMPROVEMENT EXCITEMENT
I’m changing out a light fixture in my bathroom before I paint. There’s something about a new fixture that really frames a room, and it’s time for those hollywood dressing room style lights to go. Can’t wait to see what the new one looks like… it’s a little different, unique, and so very me.
The handyman comes this week, and I’ve got a few project ideas for him. My plan is to keep him busy over the next few weeks.
CURRENT PATIO SITUATION
Right now, I’m doing something I’ve never really done since I’ve lived in my condo. I’m sitting out on my patio. Not only is the weather incredible (slightly cool, yet sunny and bright), it’s also quiet and comfortable and just lovely.
I have some string lights in my garage that I’m tempted to bring up tomorrow to hang. I’ll wait until Father’s Day weekend to plant flowers (as is customary in Colorado)… and this place will be perfect.
CURRENT TRAVEL PLANS
I have two (maybe three) trips coming up FINALLY! I’ve been home for almost two months now without and business or personal travel and I’m about to lose my mind!!!
This month, I’m off to San Diego to visit my dear friend Crystal, a quick trip to Chicago for work, and a potential trip to Las Vegas to celebrate a dear friend later in the month. Get me outta here…
CURRENT FASHION FIND
Have you seen the Lou & Grey line at Loft? You guys… it’s a little pricy, but touch the fabrics. They’re like butter. I bought a top today to try it out, and I’m already wishing I had bought two. So, so cozy.
CURRENT WATER ACTIVITIES
Earlier in the month, I wrote about my floating experience at Samana Float Center. And, I’m still floating! Later today, I’ll float for the third time.
For me, there’s something incredible about floating before the work week gets started, stopping all the shoulds, and just “being” for 90 minutes. Read all about my experience here.
CURRENT TV SHOWS
There are so many shows about LOVE right now. Maybe it’s because we’re in-between a lot of the network shows’ seasons… but I’m loving the shows that are on right now. Of course, Married at First Sight is at the top of my list.
This Chicago group has been really fun to watch. I think Nate/Sheila have more staying power than I thought originally, and Ashley and Anthony seem pretty well matched. I just can’t put my finger on what the heck is going on with the last couple, Cody and Danielle. I’m rooting for them all though!
Other shows: Bachelorette, Andy Cohen’s revival of Love Connection (did anyone else watch this as a kid? I’ll be back in two-and-two…), and Drew Barrymore has a First Dates show. I have yet to watch the Andy/Drew shows, but I have them queued up on my DVR. A summer of love… I’m all for it!
