It's been a few months since my last "Currently" post so I thought it was about time to catch y'all up on the smaller details of my life!  I share a lot over on Twitter + Instagram, but sometimes the smaller details get lost in the hustle. 

WATCHING  //  Oh, me and my TV shows.  I can recommend so many shows for you to watch you'll feel like you never leave the couch!  A few of my favorites this month have been Grey's Anatomy, New Girl, Pretty Little Liars, The Voice, Nashville + Hart of Dixie.  

DRINKING  //  A ton of Mountain Dew.  Sean and I are about to start a Whole 30 to jump start a healthier lifestyle change so that will be changing very soon!  Hot tea + water here I come ... P.S. It's best to avoid me at all costs during the first two weeks of this Whole 30.  Me with no caffeine and a serious lack of sugar is not going to be fun ... It's times like these that I really wish I liked real coffee and not just the sugar filled latte version.  

LISTENING  //  I don't talk about music often, but it's something that both Sean and I are really passionate about.  You definitely need to check out these two Taylor Swift covers/mash ups (here and here) + we can't get enough of James Bay lately!

CREATING  //  I've been changing up some of the existing designs in my print shop, but other than that the creative juices just haven't been flowing.  I've been more focused on getting things settled with my new position at work, preparing for a conference and pretending like I'm actually working towards getting our wedding planned.  Yeah ... I should probably get on that.  

BUYING  //  A lot.  I've been on a total online shopping kick trying to build up a brand new Spring wardrobe.  I always end up passing on my clothes each season to my little sisters or selling them on Poshmark so now it's time for the fun stuff!  I've finally come to the conclusion that after my post yesterday about ethical shopping practices, that I'm going to take the plunge into trying out a capsule wardrobe.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you can check out the details here.  So far I've bought these sandals, this top + this vest  to add to my Spring rotation!  

READING  //  I go through phases with which blogs are my favorite to read just like I do with TV shows.  It seems like I gravitate towards a certain type of show or blog depending on where my focus is in life in general at that point in time.  Right now I'm really loving Hey Natalie Jean, Take Heart + Aubrey Kinch.  Apparently I'm quite baby crazy right now because all three of these awesome ladies focus on general lifestyle musings, but all three have adorable little ones mixed in throughout their content.
