Currently - January Edition

Happy Monday friends! (happy Monday does not sound as happy as Happy Friday)

Listening - Jon Pardi's new album - LOVE IT! If you like Luke Bryan kind of country then give it a listen! My favs (besides Up All Night) are: Write You a Song & That Man.
Thomas Rhett - Get Me Some of That
The Black Keys - how am I JUST NOW getting on board with them? Where have I been?? They are music for my soul.

Eating - let's not even discuss my fatty tendencies right now...
 
Drinking - I've been trying to get back on the water wagon....I really have. WHHHYYYYYYY is it so hard?
 
Reading - Believing God - Beth Moore. Every single page is full of wisdom. I'm reading it on Kindle (thanks to Beth's books being on free download in early Jan), but I have a notebook full of side notes. I'm a note taker/highlighter person when I read. I really connect with her style of writing.
Next on my list: The Silent Wife - checked it out from the library Saturday
  
Feeling - TIRED!!!! I couldn't go to sleep until 1:30am after all the Grammy excitement. I have sooooo many things to say about the Grammys...but I'll just leave you with this hair perfection...
 
Weather - We have had record cold temps here in Knoxville for January. I work for a natural gas utility company so cold weather = good business for us, but it's been quite cray cray. It's actually been warmer in Alaska than it has been here. Which is just stupid. Not a lot of snow, but a ton of negative wind chills.

Wanting - Floors in my house. Is that too much for a girl to ask? Patience, patience, patience. BTW - I love these floors and all the depth with the color. Mine were much darker.
 
Watching - Crazy Hearts: Nashville {A&E} is my newest guilty pleasure! Counting Down the days until The Walking Dead comes back on Feb 9th!

I love The Black Keys! You're right, they are music for the soul. Believing God is actually next up on my reading list. So glad you like it! I LOVE those floors. They'd look so good in your house! And Crazy Hears:Nashville...so ready for Thursday to see what happens next!

Hope you have a great week!! xoxo

I put the flavor drops in my water so I can drink a ton more than I used to. I don't mind water, but sometimes I want flavor!

I shut the Grammy's off at 10:30, just had to go to bed or else I never would've gotten up for work today!

Goodness gracious this weather is crazy!! Hope you're staying warm! Those floors are so gorgeous. I love the dimension of all th different woods. Marking that as a "must have" when we buy a house!!!

Pamela said...

I've been wanting to go to the library, ha! Love those floors!

Emmy Hornburg said...

I need to catch up on the Grammy's! I watched parts of it, but then when Downton Abbey and Sherlock came off I was glued to PBS. I'm going to search for performances on YouTube today!

Christina said...

put a slice of lemon in your water bottle. or a slice of cucumber and a slice of orange. trust me!!

Jill @ Bluegrass Belle said...

I've basically just forced myself to drink water...a LOT. It gets easier and I start to crave it just to hydrate I guess. Don't get me wrong. I crave Sprite too :P But not as much as I used to, and I don't keep it in the house anymore.

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

The Black Keyes are amazing! Love listening to them at work when I want to tone everyone out! I find lots of ice makes me drink it more, weird I know but it helps. Jared Leto is still a hottie, and that hair. Perfect Ombre!

P!nky said...

Those floors are amazing, I love em too. And I got into the Black Keys late too, it's okay.

Is the Nashville show a reality tv series or is it scripted?

Lauren Loeffel said...

LOVE me some Black Keys! Drinking water IS hard and I wish it tasted like Coke. ha!

Fran @ Sassy Southern Bride said...

I posted a similar living room pic today! I really want to watch the Nashville show. Oh, and I get La Croix water from Publix to bring to work instead of soda and highly recommend them. I hope you have a good Monday!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

It's been unusually cold everywhere and I think the country as a whole is beyond over it. Even here in FL it's been pretty cold, we almost never run our heat, and have been running it for a few weeks now. Yipes!

Stay warm :)

Rachel S said...

I have never watched the Grammys..I feel like I am missing something.

Jordan said...

Love The Black Keys! Does Jared Leto have better ombre than most women I know? I still can't believe it is Monday already; crossing my fingers that Friday gets here ASAP!

Wine and Summer said...

I can't even with Jared Leto! He has better hair than any woman I know.

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

Jared Leto totally nailed that ombre hair right? ;-) He is still gorgeous to me even if his hair is the same length as mine!

Mademoiselle Michael said...

I have a buddy who is a pro golfer and his tip for drinking water is to line up X amount of water bottles on your desk for the day & just knock em back. (It might not be the greenest option but for the sake of health it can be important to at least GET that water in you!) That way you can see where you're at during the day & don't have to constantly refill. I've also seen on pinterest girls who fill a big nalgene & mark it like a measuring up but it'll say "Okay by 2:00 the water should be down to this level & so on."

MWAHHHHHH

I have all the Crazy Hearts saved on DVR. I can't wait to catch up!! Your city definitely was not the warmest this weekend! We ended up at Cotton Eye Joe's for our artist's after party. Wow, that place is insane! haha I had never seen people dance like that!

Reba K. Writes said...

I'm obsessed with Thomas Rhett, I like to think he wrote "Get me Some of That" while he saw me dancin around like a fool at the Tin Roof back in my skinnier days :) I'm trying to cut out Diet Coke but it is freaking killer!!!

Faith said...

This was fun to read!

I laughed out loud when I read this " let's not even discuss my fatty tendencies right now..."

And he'll always be Jordan Catalano to me :)

Hallie Oceanside said...

I don't want to discuss my fatty tendencies either so we'll just pretend that topic does not exist!

I hope you get your new floors soon!
Who was your favorite Grammy Glamour last night?
I loved me some Ciara, I hope I look that hot pregnant some day!

kelsnsher said...

I live in Lexington now and it's subzero and I keep thinking I might go home to Knox for the weekends to warm up only to realize it's just as cold there :(

Ashley said...

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

Oh, Jared... Jared, Jared, Jared. (IDK if I mean that in a good way or a bad way... can't decide, haha!)

Life of a Little Songbird said...

I am going to have to give Jon Pardi a listen. I love me some Luke Bryan!
