Currently - October Edition

Listening - Bruno Mars, Gorilla. Throwback Dixie Chicks, heard one song last week and I've been obsessed ever since. Justin Moore's new cd, thanks to Amy! Lolly, Justin Bieber. JT.
Eating - Can I just sum it up to everything?
Drinking - Iced coffee has taken over my life. I say that and you laugh, but I mean it. Also, craft beers - pumpkin, peach, strawberry - yummmmmy. I've been sippin on plenty of Octoberfest lately too, but dang it kicks my booty!

Wearing - BOOTS! LEGGINGS - not as pants though.
Reading - Whispers of Hope - 10 weeks of devotional prayer by Beth Moore. Allegiant by Veronica Roth - last book in the Divergent series finally came out this week! Also, bought The Lincoln Letters. I love historical fiction books.
Feeling - Thankful. Blessed. Happy.

Weather - It's chilly now! Mid to low 60's during the day - low 40's upper 30's at night. Guess who still hasn't turned on their heat? This hobo is gonna live like she's homeless and bundle up for as long as I possibly can. Colder weather makes my work days really long and hectic though.
Wanting - SLEEEEEP! My sleep schedule is so screwed up these days. I wish I could spend the whole weekend sleeping.

Thinking - Let's go with making a conscious effort not to over-think.... I'm really trying to pray vs. react. Things to pray about: My mom's health is not doing very well at all, she's on her 3rd round of treatments for her lung cancer and it has spread a little so that has me worried. Boys, I've spent a lot of time lately praying for my future husband and oddly enough my ex-fiancé.
Enjoying - Trent Shelton - if you don't know him, find him here on Twitter. He is an amazing inspiration! It's pretty nice to hear a cute boy tell you that you're perfect just the way you are.

"Get really drunk" haha why do I feel like that sums up my life

Alexa said...

1. Trent is a CAAAA-UUUUTIE patootie!
2. I need to come back to Knoxville just to hug a Tennessee tree. And you.
3. I'm wearing leggings kinda-sorta as pants today, so I hope you'd still return my hug.
4. Gimme all the historical fiction!
5. Because we can't end a list at 4. Also there's currently a Book of Mormon Adsense thingy on your sidebar...mmk.

LOOOOOOVE those tennessee fall trees!

Brrrrrrrrrr it's cold, bring back the heat!

Praying is good! I'll be sending a few up for your mama!


Jordan said...

Sorry to hear about your mom. I will be keeping y'all in my prayers! It's a good sign that you've been praying for your ex... means the moving on process is in FULL swing. :) I think it's because it's getting colder (lol no it's not) but I just want to eat everythingggg. The struggle is real!

Amanda aka Manda said...

Shannon @Imperfectly Perfect Grace said...

I'm loving all your inspirational photo sayings that you posted. I like the one about learning about love when you fell out of love and the one about worry.
Hope you've had a good week!

Iced coffee is my obsession in life. And that quote ..."I thank God I didn't get what I thought I deserved", I can't even tell you how much that speaks to me on SO many different levels!


Wine and Summer said...

2. Thinking of you and your mommy.

3. Obsessed with ice coffee. I drink it all year long, I don't care.

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I remember dedicated a karaoke version of There's Your Trouble to a guy I totally had a crush on back in high school!

TheTinyHeart said...

So sorry to hear about your mom, I'll be keeping her in my thoughts.

I would kill for it to be in the mid 60s again...this week it's barely reached 55 :(

Eating everything - current story of my life too. As I sit here after polishing off some Olga Snackers & a rice krispy treat while thinking about lunch in 40 minutes.

Jordon said...

I have never been much of a pumpkin beer drinker, but we went to a beer fest last weekend and I was ALL about it.. Along with every other beer they offered ;). Praying for you and your family!

Whitney Leigh said...

I cannot DEAL with Bruno Mars' Gorilla. That song freaks me out so bad. haha!!

And you are so much stronger than me. I would have died weeks ago if we didn't turn on the heat. And I'm still sleeping with four blankets and fuzzy socks.

Helene in Between said...

eating- everything, YES. i wanna try this pumpkin beer!

Katie said...

loving Gorilla and Justin Moore!!

I can't believe you haven't turned the heat on. I have yet to get my coats out, but I have been dressing for winter when going to work all week. Brrr

praying for you & your mom. :(

I was going to wear leggings as pants today and then I remembered that they're dirty. :[ sad day.
I'm currently reading Insurgent and I looooove the series thus far! I'm also a little bit disappointed with the actors that are playing the roles for the movie.
