Currently #2

Next week I have plans for tons of exciting posts. Mostly food of course.

There are the promised recipes for these:


And these:


I also created a new recipe yesterday that I’m positive you all will love.


It includes chocolate. And peanut butter.

There’s also some pictures from a trip that I’ll share either on Monday or Wednesday.


But… for now I just want to enjoy the rest of my Spring Break, free from the woes of photo editing and proofreading recipe instructions for accuracy.

Today I just want to share an update of a post I did in January about all of the things that I am loving currently.


Current Book: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.


Current Music: Country radio station. In particular, I’m really digging the song Merry Go Round from Kacey Musgraves. My favorite line is: Mama’s hooked on Mary Kay/ Brother’s  hooked on Mary Jane/ And Daddy’s hooked on Mary two doors down. I love play on words.

Current Guilty Pleasure: Pretty Little Liars. What did you all think of the last episode. I’m conflicted because I’m glad Spencer is getting a little more air time, but I also feel like the episode went absolutely no where. Kind of a place filler. This girl was right.

Current Nail Color: I always go the cheap route… None.

Current Drink: H20. (I’m very particular about what kind though)

Current Food: Right now my favorite soup combo would have to be chicken soup with kabocha squash and peas. Yum!


Current TV Show: I’m about half way through the first episode of Bunheads on Hulu. I’m not sure what I think about it yet.

Current Wish List: Another week of Spring Break.

Current Need: A full 8 hours of sleep. Hmm… Pretty similar to last time. It doesn’t help that no matter how hard I try, I’ve been waking up at 5:30-6:30 every morning on break so far. That’s just not normal.

Current Triumph: I’ve kept pretty busy all break, no slouching off just because I don’t have school. Everyday I do about an hour or two of cleaning around the house. On Tuesday I went to the Dentist, dropped off something to my brother at school, went to the local butcher to purchase some chickens, and that night I drove about three hours to another state with my dad. On Wednesday I had my internship interview and then we drove another three hours home. Thursday I got a haircut (two whole inches. Yay!), went to a Chinese restaurant with my friends, and proceeded to do a little shopping. My splurge purchase? Dish washer soap.

Current Bane of my Existence: Those people who are all about themselves. You know the ones.

Current Celebrity Crush: Leonardo DiCaprio. Again. I’m not sure this will be changing anytime soon.

Current Indulgence: Not anything really that I’ve been eating. Just all of the baking that I’ve been doing for my family.


Current Blessing: Realizing that I have three more days of break. Better make the most of them!

Current Slang: “He’s a bum” when referring to my brother. I think it was when he refused to go shopping with me or something. Or maybe when he didn’t want to take out the dog…


Current Outfit: Maroon Nike sweat pants and old high school t-shirt (Old pic. Same shirt).


Current Excitement: The prospect of watching Silver Linings Playbook this weekend.

Current Mood: Tired. Is that a mood? Hmph. I’m too tired to care. Ha.

Current Link: Two more recipes accepted!


What’s on your current wish list?

What has been your guilty pleasure recently?

Am I the only one who hasn’t seen Silver Linings Playbook yet?

  1. Love this post 🙂 – Silver Linings Playbook is SO good! I hope you enjoy it. Let us know what you think. – Reading this post made me really miss college. Seriously. Real world jobs and routines don’t even compare. I wish I would’ve realized this while I was in the thick of it! – It sounds like you have been so productive, love it! When I had my week off in January, I was such a bum. – Looking forward to the upcoming recipes!!

    • Thanks for the awesome comment! 🙂 I really liked Silver Linings Playbook. And while I hope you’re wrong about the real world… I know you’re right 😦 I’ll do my best to enjoy it while it lasts!

  2. So much going on in this post. Stupid PLL and that stupid episode. I had good feelings about it too. Anyways, can’t wait for the recaps and recipes and everything else! My guilty pleasure lately: starburst jelly beans. I can’t get enough!

    • That episode was just a whole lot of nothing. I kept on expecting something to happen, but nooo… Stupid.

      Do you like black licorice jelly beans? Those were always my favorite when I was younger, especially because no one else seemed to like them and would always give me theirs 🙂

  3. Yes!!! I can’t wait to hear what you think of silver linings playbook 🙂 i really liked the first season of bunheads…haven’t seen the second yet but i think the first gets better as it goes along! Enjoy the rest of your weekend girl!!

    • I LOVED Silver Linings Playbook. I watched it on Saturday with my whole family and it was the perfect end to my Spring break. And I agree- Bunheads does get better as it goes along. I’m really liking it.

  4. Ahh those pictures of the food look soo good. Really looking forward to the recipes.
    Glad to hear your time off is going well. I like keeping busy as well even if I’m on holiday. I just can’t sit still! And it’s so satisfying to get those niggling jobs done that you can’t ordinarily do when you’re busy with work/school.

    • I’m crossing my fingers that everyone likes them!

      And those “niggling jobs” as you put it were perfect for the days when otherwise I would have stayed at home doing nothing. Cleaning, laundry, cooking, etc. They made me feel more accomplished about my day. A super productive Spring break!

  5. I wake up early too!! I hate it! I wish I could get 8 hours of sleep!! I so with you one the celebrity crush!! I will always love him after seeing The Titanic! lol I really want to silver linings playbook too! Jennifer Lawrence is such a good influence to girls about body image! Can’t wait for your recipes!!

    • Yes, without fail, no matter what time I go to bed I always end up waking up early. The absolute latest that I “sleep in” is 9:00, and that’s only on weekends after a super hard week. Not very often. This past spring break I don’t think I ever slept past 7:00 😦 I blame my dad for instilling that “early to bed, early to rise..” mumbo jumbo on me at a young, impressionable age. Ha.

      Did you watch The Titanic in 3D this past year? It wasn’t much different than the original, but I just wanted to be able to say that I saw THE TITANIC in the theaters. Lol.

      And that is one of the things that I love about Jennifer Lawrence. She really is a great role model.

    • You need to see BOTH movies 🙂 I hope you ended up watching Silver Linings Playbook because I thought it was absolutely awesome!! And I can’t wait for The Great Gatsby to come out in May. So. Excited.

  6. Silver Linings Playbook is a fantastic movie. I think you’ll really like it. Easily one of the best movies of last year 🙂

  7. Leo is totally my celebrity crush too. He’s just sooo dreamy. I remember back in like 4th grade I ordered the “all about Leo” book from the bookclub. Definitely still have it. 🙂

  8. Silver Linings Playbook is a great movie! I’m curious to hear your opinion but am sure you’ll enjoy it in anyway :).

    That time quote is so true. Hope you get to enjoy your last days of break and maybe even sleep in a little. I’ll forever be impressed by all bloggers’ early get-up times – and never admit mine ;).

  9. You had my attention at ‘chocolate’! Looking forward to those recipes!
    I haven’t seen Silver Linings Playbook, either. I usually don’t like rom-coms, but I’ve heard it’s really good. Putting it on my wishlist.

    • Haha. That was the idea 😀

      I have to admit that I am a fan of romantic comedies (I love you for not saying “chick flicks” 🙂 Lol), but most of the time I don’t like rated R movies because of unnecessary “additions,” but this one was really well put together.

    • It’s my favorite combo. The broth gets so creamy and sweet when cooked with the peas and squash.

      Silver Linings Playbook was great. It’s still in theaters where I’m at, so maybe you’ll get lucky and it’s at one near you too 🙂

    • I hope you like the recipes. Just posted two of them a minute ago for this week’s WIAW 🙂

      And you are right. Pretty Little Liars went absolutely NOWHERE during the last episode. You’ll have to tell me what you think of the next one. I always have to wait a day or two for it to come out on Hulu because I don’t have a TV.

  10. Ok, I am legit excited for all these posts next week. Especially the chocolate one! I love Pretty Little Liars (currently two weeks behind, but was pretty devastated with the whole Toby thing). Also, Silver Linings Playbook is absolutely brilliant – I’m sure you’ll love it 🙂

  11. Chocolate and peanut butter. You were right. I already love it, whatever it is. How’d the interview go? I was totally rooting for you and make sure you relax a little on your spring break. You’re suppose to be the “bum.” Now is your chance so bum it up.
    Current guilty pleasure….not blogging this week. Takes a lot if the pressure off and means I can get caught up on my favorite blogs. I haven’t seen Silver Linings Playbook yet and I totally want to.

    • 🙂 The interview went great. I did a recap for my WIAW post this week… although I talked mostly about the trip and not so much about the interview. Thanks so much for rooting for me. Lol. We’ll see in a few weeks I guess! And ya, I totally failed at being a bum this past week for Spring break. I feel more tired than when I went in. Ha.

      I can only imagine the major pressure relief from not blogging. On the otherhand, I would probably be anxious to start back up though at the same time. You will love Silver Linings Playbook. Although both of the main characters suffered from some serious mental illnesses, I could totally relate to them and what they were going through. Just fantastic acting throughout the whole cast.
