Happy 4th of July weekend. My mom is in town visiting so we have been eating, drinking, strolling and sweating all over the city. But I did take the time to write my monthly "currently" post since I think the blog would explode if I missed a month. Here is what I'm currently doing...

Reading this book since it's been a while since I read a WW2 book. I went through a phase where it felt like that was all I was reading, so I took a little break. I just started it, so we will see if it's easy to dive into.

Watching summer movies. After long days in the sun, I love coming home, pouring a glass of rose and putting on something hilarious like The Great Outdoors or Summer Rental.

Loving this amazon purchase. It has come with us on multiple adventures now and is so comfortable. Plus, watching Justin run to fill it with air is amazing. Get one now. You won't regret it.

Attempting to use Instagram stories for more things. I think I will hold onto Snapchat because I like the voice changers and the ease of sending funny photos to one person, but I use Instagram more and I like the back and forth communication.

Sharing this bundle of Beautycounter summer essentials, because I love when anything saves money and these are some of my favorites. Get these 3 items for $50 instead of $63 if you place your order by July 5th. Click here to get yours.

Eating Steve's Key Lime Pies. He opened a stand at the Dekalb Food Hall and we visited it last night. Those damn pies are my absolute favorite - especially on a hot day. They have tons of awesome food stands there and if you need a break from the sun, it's a great place to check out.

Plotting out our road trip. We are heading to Indianapolis for work next week and we are driving since we have to stay for longer than 2 days. We like to bring the dogs if we can instead of leaving them at the boarding place. Also, we have been hoarding some podcasts for this trip and we will FINALLY be listening to S-Town and I'm pretty excited.

Shopping for new summer dresses. I purged so many when we moved last fall because they didn't fit anymore or just weren't my favorites and now I don't have any and it seems wrong. Hopefully I'll find a few when I'm out in the city with my mom today.

Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July and that the pups all survive the obnoxious fireworks displays.


  1. sadly, I returned that book. I was really excited to read it too; reviews were saying that if you liked The Nightingale, you'd love this book -- LIES. I didn't like it :(

  2. Marshalls is great for dresses right now. Old Navy, too! A road trip with the dogs sounds so fun!! That book is on my to-read list and that lounger looks AWESOME!

  3. i felt that way about WW2 books recently as well, needed a break. still on the break lol. that one does look interesting though.. enjoy your time with your mom! hope you find some awesome dresses!

  4. summer dresses. god knows i could use a few of those. i'm not normally one for dresses, but right now, with this heat, jeans and tees are just too much.

    and our pool filter's busted which means no swimming... :[

  5. I freaking love key lime pie.

    I want one of those inflatable things for the beach.


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
