Happy Friday! I got this post idea from Kim at Racing Bananas and thought it would be fun one for a Friday.


Current book:

Grasping at Eternity (Kindrily #1) by Karen Amanda Hooper… I love YA books. I always have, but since my sister-in-law Jenna started her amazing blog, I have been an even bigger fan. I’ve had this one on my Kindle app for awhile, and I’ve finally started reading it. And fun fact, since my sister-in-law is friends with the author who is local, I’ve actually had the pleasure of having lunch with them! Another perk of having a sister-in-law who blogs about books.


Grasping at Eternity (The Kindrily, #1)



Current music:

I love the new Katy Perry song Roar. It’s fabulous and a real mood booster. It’s such a catchy song and I have been lured in by her lyrics before, especially with Wide Awake. Roar is fabulous. It’s also currently the ringtone on my phone, proof of how much I love the song.

Current guilty pleasure:

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Every year, I live for the day they come out. And when they do, I have too many too soon and then decide I need to cut back. I’m not there yet, I probably will be in another week or so. I get mine with soy milk, no whipped cream. It’s still high in points but Oh. So. Good.

Current drink:

Water is my go-to drink, and what I drink the most of every day. I usually drink it plain, if I add anything it’s just lemon. Now if we’re talking favorite drink when hubby and I are out enjoying wings? The answer would be beer. Ice cold beer.


Current food:

The last few weeks we’ve had breakfast for dinner quite a few times. Eggs, ham, maybe hash browns, and maybe toast. I love eggs and could eat them all the time so it’s never a stretch to have them often. It’s also easy to make and during the week, I am all about making meals that don’t take much effort.


Current show:

I love The Little Couple and Who Do You Think You Are? We also watch Bar Rescue and I’ll admit it, The Real Housewives of New Jersey OR Orange County. But not Miami, I don’t like that one. Those housewives are a train wreck and I just can’t look away. Also recently, I have gotten sucked into Grey’s Anatomy. I don’t seem to watch shows when they’re all the rage so clearly I am way behind on this one and I’m sure I’m not catching them in order. I really want to watch Orange Is The New Black, it’s already in my Netflix My List.


Current wish list:

A new pair of Brooks Glycerin 10 running shoes and a handful of race entries. I hope I can swing the races I have planned for the fall and it would be fabulous to have new shoes to run them in.


Current triumphs:

Running. I’ve been running a pretty consistent pace for awhile now and it makes me feel like I am doing something right. I am enjoying the structure of my half marathon training. It’s not necessarily my goal to run faster, but to be able to run longer and better.


Current links:

Three blogs that I love are:

  • Racing BananasI just recently found this blog and it turns out Kim and I have a lot in common!
  • Words To Run By – Sara is wonderful and is very open in her blog.
  • Orangespoken – I know Steph personally and she is so awesome. Her blog will make you laugh out loud at times.


Current needs:

I *need* for the weather to cool off. I *need* for it to not be so humid. I long for the nice fall days I know we will have at some point. I just wish we didn’t have to wait for so long.


Current indulgence:

I love, love, love my iPad Mini. It’s very high on the list of the coolest things I‘ve ever bought for myself. I can read on it, catch up on blogs, play time-wasting games, watch Netflix, and more.


Current outfit:

I’m totally stealing this from Kim at Racing Bananas but my running or yoga clothes. They’re so comfy and I would wear them every day if I could.


Current excitement:

I am pretty excited to attend FLBlogCon again this year, this time with hubby. I enjoyed it so much last year and met new people. This year has been so different for my blogging, it’s grown so much, and I am excited to meet even more new people and learn even more for this little piece of internet that I love and put so much into.


Current mood:

I am tired and worn out. It’s been a stressful week with our dog Blue having surgery and he has 10-14 days healing time before his stitches come out, so it will be stressful until then.

What are you currently enjoying? I hope you’ll share!


  1. Love these types of posts. I love love love Pumpkin Spice coffee but have been holding off on getting any because I go into overload too – so I’m waiting just a bit longer. :) I’m so bummed that we won’t make FlBlogCon this year after all. I had to sell my tickets back because we couldn’t find a sitter for the kids and our plans basically got all messed up. Hopefully next year! :)

    1. Oh that stinks, Susi! I was so looking forward to meeting you. I hope we can meet soon!

  2. OOOOOH!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea for a post! This is awesome!! Thank you so much for mentioning me too! I really appreciate that.

    I am headed off to get a pumpkin spice latte now (I got a Starbucks Gift card for my birthday!) with my current read Wizard’s First Rule (a re-visit from my high school days) and Mr. Mumford. 😉

    Have a great weekend!

    1. You are so welcome, Sara! You know I love your blog. :)

  3. I love pumpkin spice lattes! I do skim milk, no whipped cream and half the syrup to try and make it a little more reasonable (and not so sweet).

    I also need cooler, less humid weather. Fall is close, right? I hope …

    1. I have never tried it with half the syrup, good idea. That is sure to save a couple points. Fall is so close…. SO close. Well, the day that it will be fall is close. I’m not sure if the weather had gotten the memo, though.

  4. Aww, poor Blue! Sending him puppy kisses.

    I hope enjoy Grasping at Eternity!
    And yay for running. Big kudos for that. I can only run if someone is chasing me. 😉

    1. Thank you Karen! I am enjoying it, hoping to finish it this weekend. And, I used to think the same way about running!

  5. Definitely agree with your current needs. I am so over humidity and heat! I want to enjoy my PSL in a giant hoodie! :) have a great weekend!

    1. PSLs, hoodies, jeans, and sweaters are the best, Even in Florida and if I have to crank the a/c to make it happen. :)

  6. Thanks so much for the shoutout! Did I know that you like the Brooks Glycerin series? They’re my favorites too – bought the 11s this summer!

    1. I don’t know if you knew that or not, lol. I hear that the 11s are quite different. Did you have 10s before? Just curious to know your thoughts.

  7. At this very moment, I’m currently enjoying watching my Patriots play and that they’re winning.

    I also enjoyed reaching a huge weight loss milestone as of Friday morning – lost 55 lb, which is exactly half of my weight loss total goal. It’s all downhill now!
