What’s Been Going On.


So sorry.

The other day in the car Richard asked me – “Why don’t you ever write on your blog anymore?”

I couldn’t give a very good, straight answer. I don’t really know. Boredom maybe. laziness? Maybe even it started feeling intimidating when I would read other girl’s blogs and see how cool they are and I feel like mine lacks in comparison.

I started thinking though – does it matter if anyone really reads this? No.
Do I genuinely like to blog. Yes.

So… I am back!

Here are some things to catch you up on what’s been going on in my little life.

  • Still with Richard. Going on 6 months now! Wow!! Where does the time go?!

Remember my dating plan? I would say it went very well.

  • I still love all my original TV shows but have added a new one. Walking Dead. I am pretty much obsessed. It’s so good… I have caught myself up to the end now and I may have withdraw symptoms until the next season starts in February.  Warning: It is really gory, what do you expect though from a tv show about zombies…but still so good! Does anyone else love this show?

  • December is going to be a busy month with the holidays, the Christmas parties, college graduations (Yah!! Congrats Sarah, my roomie!) and spending time with family. I will try to update more often like I used to until then here are some of Instagram pictures. I have been slacking there as well.. oops!

Right now…


Obsessing over… These shoes I saw on the Skunkboy Blog. I need these shoes to be on my feet.
 
Anticipating… Fall/winter. I can’t wait. I think about it a lot. It’s my favorite. I just love the weather and the clothes and the food… oh… so excited for the Fall season.
 
Working on…  just being more in the moments. I have done so much changing especially in this last year. I won’t go into a lot of detail right now, but I have been working on myself, and  my relationships with people and I can honestly say that as of right now, I am in a good place and I can tell that all the inner work I have been doing is paying off. 
 
Watching… Not watching anything at the moment. I am still waiting for my new roommate to come home so we can get cable hooked up! I usually don’t watch tv but if my roommate is going to hook it up and I have someone to split the cost I guess I will watch more tv. I am pretty excited that all my favorite shows are about to start airing again!! New Girl, The Office, Modern Family, Parks and Rec.
 
Thinking about… this new diet I am going to start Monday. I am not trying to really lose weight but I just want to be healthier so I am going to try this and go to the gym on a more regular basis… I am excited/dreading this! haha… I am pretty excited about actually buying groceries and saving money on that instead of eating out and eating a lot of junk food. I can tell a difference of when I eat healthy vs non healthy and it really sucks the first few days…but then it gets better. I have a motivational partner though so that should help!! More to come on that later! 😉
 
Reading…  I am waiting on this book to come in from the library.
 
Listening to… Pandora of course.  I have 3 favorite stations on Pandora.  My She and Him Radio, a Country mix of 90’s and today, and a Christian station.  Right now, I am listening to the She and Him radio and  I am listening to “Ghost” by Ingrid Michaelson.
 
Eating… A pop-tart and coffee.. haha.. I know! This is why I am going to try to eat healthier!
 
Wishing… that my new house would actually be a little more normal and that my new roommate would come home so we could get things started.  I moved at the beginning of the month but you should see it. I had to move things over because my apartment lease was up…but they weren’t quite finished with renovations yet so I officially was able to move into my room this last week but things are still not unpacked and the rest of the house is pretty bare until my roommate comes back from Texas (where she is from recuperating from surgery). I am just excited to get things to normal soon!

Current Favorite TV Shows


So.. I don’t have cable. I don’t want it. I don’t need it. I rarely watch TV and the shows I like the most I can get free/cheap on Netflix and Hulu, and I don’t have to be forced to watch mostly crap reality TV. Anybody else with me on this?

Here are my top tv shows I am currently watching as of now:


The Office – I like it. Even though Michael left I still like it! I will be sad when this show cancels. I can’t even pick a favorite character. (As you will see, if I really like the show – I really love all the characters. To me that’s what makes the show good.)


The New Girl – Love, love, love this!! So funny! I feel like constantly laughing. Zooey is so cute, plus my idol. Does anyone else desperatly wish that Nick and Jess would finally end up together already?


Parks and Recreation – Another show that I didn’t think I would like… watched one episode and now I am hooked. Every character is just so good and so funny. 🙂  Ben is a cutie by the way (and Chris is too.)


Modern Family – Makes everyone’s families seem normal. Claire and Phil are the BEST couple. I just can’t get enough of it.


The Wonder Years – This is so old school but I don’t care! My other shows are off-season now and I wanted something else to watch I wait… and I remembered how I used to LOVE this show. So now I am watching it in order. As an adult I can appreciate the humor in it better now. I just think Kevin is such a cute kid, and he is funny.  Also, when I watch this show I can’t help but wish that I was a teenager in the 60’s!

What are your favorite TV shows?

Currently


I saw this  on a blog I was reading and I though it would be a fun writing idea. Plus go check out Sometimes Sweet. She is a pretty cool girl.

So here goes…

Reading: Well, I haven’t started yet, but I will be picking up Helen Keller in Love. I also wrote a pre-review post already. I am pretty excited about it. There is also another book recommended by a girl I work with at the church that I will probably read soon too.

Watching: My favorite TV shows as of now are: Modern Family, The New Girl, Parks and Recreation, and The Office (Yes, I still like it, even with Michael gone.) I usually set aside some time on Thursdays and I watch these on Hulu. I have to say I look forward to this small amount of time every week. This is really the only time I watch tv. (Unless you count the news running in the background while I get ready every morning, or if I am at someone else’s house and they are watching tv.)

Working on: Getting healthier, in general. Trying to eat healthier and excercise more. Just overall make better decisions in life.

Thinking about: My weekend – it’s already crazy busy! How am I going to fit everything in?

Anticipating: Change. I need it. I feel like I have been stuck in a rut for a while now. I can’t wait until something exciting happens or changes!!

Listening to: If you haven’t realized it yet from reading my blog, I am like Zooey Deschanel’s biggest fan! Haha… so I am actually listening to my She & Him Pandora station… and wouldn’t you know it… I am actually listening to Zooey now. There are a lot of other “new” artists I am learning I really like also from station.

Eating: Apples with peanut butter. My new favorite snack for now!! 🙂

Wishing: I was on vacation now. Any place better than where I am at. I love Oklahoma but I gotta try something new! Give me some mountains, a beach, a city – anything.
