Eating: I usually bake one sweet on Sundays, typically a new recipe i've bookmarked, for a dessert to munch on during the week. Yesterday my hubby Jeff requested Pioneer Woman's Knock You Naked Brownies. I'm devouring one right now as I type this post. These are gooooooood y'all.
Wishing: My husband wasn't leaving this morning for Indiana for 3 days. I know that sounds ridiculous. I'll be busy with work myself, and it's only 3 days, but i always miss him so much when he's gone. Our dog does too. You should see Bailey when Jeff's away; he just paces the door or whines in my lap. He's an even bigger baby than i am.
Wearing: Business suits as usual. I'm a Research Scientist in a large corporate environment, so my weekly wardrobe is fairly conservative, mostly suits, pants & blazers, and heels. But hey, I won't be in the lab tomorrow which means I can wear peep toes. Holla!
Patiently Waiting For: Football season to start!!! Just 39 days. Oh and....... Jeff and I are trying to have a baby, so we're also patiently waiting on God to bless us. Didn't see that coming did 'ya? ;)
Reading: I'm about a month behind on updating my GoodReads, which is bugging the crud out of me right now and on my to-do list by the way, so i'll just update y'all here. Currently I'm reading 3 different books, which is typical for me. On my bedside table is Lee Strobel's The Ambition, a psychological thriller/mystery and a first foray into this genre for the former Journalist turned Pastor, Lee Strobel. It's really fantastic thus far, y'all should check it out! I'm also reading Run Less Run Faster. I'm a notorious gym rat and considering running my first full marathon in November. We'll see. But in the meantime i'm working on getting faster and smarter with my workouts. I'll be honest though, this book is a big fat bore. Lastly, I just started reading Karen White's The Beach Trees a few days ago & it's pretty captivating i'll say. Definitely a fun summer read!
Annoyed By: How ill-informed so many people are about politics & current affairs. Twitter is the worst. One look at my timeline and i start to have a panic attack thinking of all these folks heading to voting booths next November.
Nesting: As Mrs. Wasp would say "my wallet turns slutty" when my Ballard Design catalog arrives. It's just a fabulously chic spot for great accessories. And I've been doing some serious damage during their end of season sale!
On My Nails: On my fingers i'm wearing an OPI axxium gel mani in Bubble Bath and on my toes i'm rocking OPI's The Thrill Of Brazil.
Planting: Our veggie & herb garden is in full bloom, so i'm mostly weeding rather than planting at the moment. But i did just put out 2 new hanging baskets on either side of our garage to add a pop of color. When putting out hanging baskets or window boxes i always choose 3 types of flowers: a thriller, a filler & a spiller. So both new hanging baskets are brimming over with mature sweet potato vine (spiller), blue/purple scaveola (filler), and yellow zinnias (thriller).
Looking Forward To: Our next and last beach trip of the summer. My in-laws have a house in Destin, Florida and the big Garner family vacation begins Friday August 5th. I cannot wait to hang out with my 2 adorable nephews, lay out all day with my sister-in-law, and cook all night with my mother-in-law. So excited!!
So that's what's going on with me currently. What about y'all? Fill me in or do a list on your blog. Thanks to sweet Lauren again for inspiring the idea!
