i found a new blog to read! this isn’t surprising at all actually, since i literally could read blogs 24/7. but in one of her first posts i read, breanna rose said she was noticing a trend of bloggers having “currently…” posts as a way to shed light on things going on in their lives. because i adore alliteration (ha!) i’ve decided to make a weekly posting called “this minute thursday” where i can share little peeks into my daily life. besides the obvious that i pretty much overshare in every post (hello flossing!) i love the idea of daily snippets, especially if the categories can ebb and flow with my mood and whim. for example one week i might be working on a big project and i can share a little sneak peek, but another weak maybe i’ll be craft-slackin’. but i’ll probably always be snackin’… ha.
[pinning] i know many people are over pinterest (those people obviously aren’t as dedicated as i am. hmph) or say it actually drains creativity. however, i love pinterest and while i’ve been pinning less aggressively than in the past, i’m currently using it to collect images for our hopefully soon acquired bar and bar gallery wall. check out my boards for some inspiration!
[reading] a casual vacancy by j.k. rowling. i’m still early on and having a hard time keeping track of all the characters but i’ve heard that gets easier the more you dive in. i only read the first four harry potter books (i know, sacrilegious to some people) so i was excited to see how her “adult” novel would be. i liker her writing a lot, and it has been fun to look up the british slang i don’t understand. i don’t think it will become my favorite book of all time because i’m just not hooked on it, but it’s keeping me entertained on the bus.
[on repeat] only you by ellie goulding! this song is so infectious and puts me in the greatest mood ever. i like a few of her other songs, but this one is by far my favorite. other things i’m thumbs-upping (that’s a phrase, right?) on my pandora is anything by florence + the machine (particularly breath of life from the snow white and the huntsmen soundtrack) and countdown by beyonce. still can’t get enough of that song, or her, frankly. i also really like the new will.i.am and britney spears song: scream & shout, even though it’s pretty dumb. jesse and i like to bump it in the car and pretend we’re dancing like britney- aka basically just moving our arms and shoulders dramatically… overshare? seriously though, watch the video and you’ll see what i mean.
[looking forward to] so much! but specifically the posts that are basically pouring out of my fingertips at the moment! i’m sure i’ll have a lull at some point, but right now i’m loving this momentum. the fourth pic above are some of the notebooks where i’ve been furiously scrawling ideas and full posts while i’m at work, on the metro, and when i wake up in the morning. i’m also looking forward to making some of those aforementioned bar pins into a reality; jesse has befriended a carpenter so we are going to have one custom built for our beloved apartment 802!
any categories you’d like to see next thursday? what are you guys currently reading, listening to, looking forward to, or pinning? leave a link to your pinterest if you have one and i’ll follow you (especially if you pin lots of pics of puppies and cocktail recipes, my two favorite things).
