Currently - April Edition

Listening - John Mayer's version of Free Fallin' - I don't even really like him but I LOVE this.
 
Throwback Maroon 5 (thank you The Voice for reminding me that Adam has always been awesome)
 
Eating - How about trying not to? Before you get all worried about me and make sure I haven't developed some eating disorder, I'm still chubby have no fear. I'm just really really missing my old body so I am really working hard on eating healthier. 5am club is making a comeback!
 
 
Drinking - Zero water. Seriously it's the bane of my existence. Vanilla Diet Coke from Sonic is my most favorite right now. HOLLA for happy hour!
 
Reading - I just finished:
-Jesus Is ____ by Judah Smith. Best book I've read in the long time. He is hilarious and it's written very conversationally. He reminds me so much of my pastor.
-I've Never Been to Vegas, but My Luggage Has by Mandy Hale. Single ladies - I know you've heard of this one. Worth a read. I can relate to so much of her story. I'll be doing a post on it soon.
-The Dark Witch by Nora Roberts.  I've read all of Nora's books - not her romance ones (GAG) and I always love a new trilogy from her.  
  
Feeling - Hopeful. I have several things going on right now that have really just weighed me down. Things that feel major. Things that aren't easy to just shake off. Things that will take time to heal. Even though I am a Christian, things can still get the best of me. But through my relationship with God, I know that I am never alone. And really all I have to do is be faithful. Each day he renews his grace to me, and if that ain't worth shaking off your troubles then I don't know what is.
 
 
Thankful. On a happy note, one of my good friends found out she's 11 weeks pregnant!! This is after a year long battle of trying so hard to make this dream of hers come true. I had even offered to carry a baby for her at one point. We have spent so much time praying for this baby and I can't wait to hold it!
 
Weather - Well yesterday was a random fluke of snow flurries and 40-something in an otherwise 60-70's kinda springy pattern. Today it's back to sunny so I think I will live. I got my first sunkissed cheeks & shoulders of the year last Saturday at my cousin's softball tournament. I'm ready to be tan!

Wanting - Let's just always assume that I want a vacay. A personal trainer would be awesome too. I don't ask for much.

This is actually somewhere I'm looking at going in October! AAAAHHHHH! It's in Nicaragua
Watching -  I did a little DVR clean up over the weekend - I deleted all my series recordings for HIMYM, I've seen them all and it's time to move on. RHONY is one of my current guilty pleasures, I love me some Heather & Sonja (Hate Aviva!!!)
Can I just say again how much fun it is to waste time looking up gifs??? I'm obviously easily entertained!

Get on that water drinking girl. Try putting cut up cucumbers, mint, blueberries or strawberries in the water to make it taste better. It helps!

Being a Christian isn't always easy, sometimes it's hard than those that don't believe, because they chalk it up to chance. I'm proud of you for acknowledging how you feel, but still having faith.

I want a vacay toooooo!

I woke up to a dusting of snow on the grass this morning, ugh! It was quite the shock!

I stopped watching RHONY a few seasons back but I'll be watching the OC ladies!

Wine and Summer said...

I had my first sonic experience a few weeks ago and I am so obsessed!! It might have been the greatest thing to ever happen to me.

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

I love old school Maroon 5 stuff. I so want to be on a beach right now. Kepp the faith girl, it's hard but worth it.

Tracy said...

I cannot STAND Aviva!!!!! geez, what a jerk! :)

Pamela said...

We have like 48% available on our dvr, ha! I was down to 30 something, so I've cleaned up a little! Most of it is Hallmark (Christmas!) movies!

Whitney @ EHFAR said...

I HATE HATE HATE water. Yuck. No amount of fruit in it will make me want to drink it. Give me Diet Coke.

Helene in Between said...

Kenya said...

I definitely want to pick up that book Jesus is _____. Sounds interesting!

Praying for peace and patience for you during these rough times. Whatever it is, you are strong and will persevere. Love you!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I miss my old body, too. I lost the weight but I desperately need to tone my shit up!

Hallie Oceanside said...

annnnnd I have a vacation for you, and it's free if you pay for your flight!

So get on it girrrrl!

Amy @ Living n Learning said...

I cannot wait to get my hands on I've Never Been to Vegas, but My Luggage Has!! And I've been reading some of Nora Roberts romance books lately. I like it. Gives me a love life to worry about since I don't have one of my own. ;)

Krysten Gautreaux said...

You need to drink water lady! I know it's lame but get on it!

And I just adore Maroon 5, they are amazing, especially Adam!

lil desiqua said...

The snow made me so mad! I was like um hellooo thought we were done with you! Hopefully that will be the last for the season. And I've heard so many great reviews on vacations in Nicaragua-- it looks beautiful (and my personal fave would be staying in a treehouse "resort")! Good luck with the planning!

Barbara Vines said...

(1) not sure how you're just learning about this john mayer free falling remake, but it is amazing and I am glad you discovered it and then reminded me about it. I jammed out to it a few times this past week.. (2) I also jammed out to old school maroon 5 - and I miss their old feel

And! how can you read 3 books at one time?! that takes total talent!

Meg {henninglove} said...

I love how you said even though I am a Christian things can still get me down, amen to that! i love how you don't sugarcoat things and just because we are a Christian doesn't mean that we have to be all smiley and bubbley all the time. thanks for being real and being you Nikki!

Meg {henninglove} said...

p.s. hating RHONY but loving that OC is back on!!

Meg {henninglove} said...

i know this is my third comment and maybe that equates to stalking you on a monday morning but i just wanna say i don't like john mayer either but it is because one of my freshmen year roommates loved him and i didn't like her so of course i didn't like her music, is that weird? ok NO more comments from me until tmw ;-)
