Hey friends! I don’t have too much to talk about with you today, but I’ve had this “Currently” survey on the back burner for a while now that I’ve been meaning to post about. It looks like today’s the day!

I can’t remember where I originally saw this survey, but I know it was on a bunch of blogs so I thought it would be fun to fill out. Feel free to play along in the comments section below! (P.S., even though this will be posting on Tuesday morning, I’m writing this on Monday night which might affect some of my answers!)

Current Book: I am almost finished reading The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes, and I’m going to be SO sad when it’s over. I read one of her other books, Me Before You, a while ago, and this one is just as good! Jojo Moyes has written a lot of books, so I’m going to have to check out her other ones as well!



I should also note that with my newish hour-long commute, I have become a reading machine. I have always liked to read and have definitely been an avid reader all my life, but these days I am flying through books on my Kindle like there’s no tomorrow. I don’t really mind because Kindle books aren’t too expensive, and reading is great for the brain, but sometimes I worry I will become a crazy book lady one of these days. Anyone else read too much?

Current Music: Some of my favorite songs right now include Overtime by Cash Cash, Skydive by Chuckie (feat. Maiday), and Fired by B Robin (feat. J Son). These are the songs I like to listen to on long road trips and while working out. I also take advantage of the EDM workout playlists on Songza and Spotify. Premade playlists FTW!

Although I listen to the top hits most of the time, when I’m at work I listen to classical music, and sometimes I will even put on my Rodgers & Hammerstein playlist to hear songs from musicals I used to watch with my mom as a kid. There’s nothing like “Sixteen Going on Seventeen” from The Sound of Music to put me in a good mood!

Current Guilty Pleasure: Hmm…I’m going to go with The Bachelorette for this one. It’s trashy TV at its finest, and I am a-ok with that. Usually my friend Bianca will come over to my apartment and we will watch it together while drinking boxed wine (see? Only the classiest for us). Fabio pretends not to like the show, but he totally does.



Current Nail Color: I’m currently sporting Essie’s Mint Candy Apple. (Painted by yours truly, don’t judge the little chips!)


Oh, and while I was looking for the name of that color, I discovered this post, which is apparently this exact same survey that I filled out last May. And when I filled out the survey then I just happened to wearing the same nail polish color. What can I say, at least I’m consistent!? So sorry that you’re getting this survey twice, but at least most of the answers have changed!

Current Drink: Good ole’ H2O, which is pretty much the only thing I drink all day, except for a mug of green tea in the morning if I feel like it. Sometimes I’ll have wine or beer with dinner, but that’s more of a special occasion type of thing (I guess I just classified Monday night Bachelorette sessions as a special occasion? Yep. I did.)

Current Food: A teeny tiny piece of blueberry cheesecake that Fabio’s dad gave us when we were in New York this past weekend. The slice of cheesecake itself is pretty enormous, but Fabio and I are savoring it by just having a few bites each night. Yummmm.

Current Favorite Show: Game of Thrones!! As I mentioned, I missed the season finale on Sunday so we are planning to watch it tonight. There are so many loose ends I just don’t know how they will all get tied up! (Update: I watched it, and now am depressed that I will have to wait another year to see it again. WAHHH!!)

Current Wish List: These. I need them.



Current Needs: Oh, you mean like actual needs? As in, not those shoes? Well, I’m almost out of bananas, and I need some new headphones for work. I am also almost out of my favorite nail polish top coat, so I should probably restock that. Other than that I think I am ok for now (except for the bananas- I gotta get on that).

Current Indulgence: This past weekend in New York was a pretty big indulgence (booze, bagels, and Italian/Colombian food will do that to ya’) so I’m trying to rein in my indulgent behavior for now. Just ignore that part above about the cheesecake 😉

Current Blessing: My life! This is probably going to sound really cheesy, but everything in my life is going so well right now. Fabio, Jack and I are doing well in our little home, I like my job, and I have the best friends and family a person could ask for. I feel healthy and I’m so happy to be able to do all the amazing things I’m doing in my life. I have a lot of friends and relatives who are going through difficult times right now, so I just say a little prayer for them every day and continue to be thankful for everything in my life.

Current Outfit: PJs!! I pretty much put them on the second I walk in the door from work. My go-to is a baggy t-shirt (usually one I steal from Fabio) and my favorite old pajama shorts that I think are Liz Claiborne and I’ve had for years. It’s not exactly the best look, but it’s comfy!

Current Excitement: Next weekend I’m going to Fire Island for a beach weekend with all my best college girlfriends!!! I absolutely CANNOT wait.

Your turn!

Questions of the day:

Current book?

Current music?

Current excitement?

  1. I love these surveys!! I’m definitely going to have to check out that book/author! I agree with you on becoming a reading machine though. Ever since I started riding the train, I can knock out a book every week or two, which is crazy. But watch out because they can definitely start to add up in cost after awhile! I finally decided to supplement with some library books too! haha. But I’m currently reading Warm Bodies for book club (book is way better than the movie) and I just finished Lexicon which was also really interesting!

    • Oh I’m with ya, those Kindle books definitely add up. Anything is better than my old Barnes & Noble/Borders habit that I had in high school though. I spent SO much money (mostly my parent’s money, if we’re being honest) on books that it was ridiculous!

  2. I love these surveys! And that book was fabulous! When you are having withdrawals after it’s over, you should read the novella that’s actually a prequel to it called Honeymoon in Paris! And the Moyes has a new book coming out soon too I think! And I too am all about the Bachelorette! I really like Marcus but I think he might be moving a little too fast for her!

    • Thanks for the book suggestion!! And I like Marcus too!! I am still sad about the whole Eric thing 🙁 I don’t like how they ended things right before he died.

  3. Wow you have a lot of self control not eating more cheesecake!
    I’m in a book rut… I finished The Giver (really good read but strange ending) and just couldn’t find anthing else that took my interest. I think I’ll try the Stephen King novel Dr Sleep…we’ll see!
    Music – I’m all about Lana Del Ray’s new album.

  4. I love Jack Rogers! I actually used to have those ones, but sadly they got trashed and I had to throw them away. Right now I am sporting the black patent leather ones. They are super cute, but not the most comfy 🙁

    Current Book? Trying to get into Born to Run. I am at Page 2 ha

    • I’ve been wanting Jack Rogers for years, but once I got out of my college/sorority girl stage in life I thought I could get by without them. However for some reason this summer I feel like I have so many cute outfits that would look so good with them, and I can’t stop thinking about them. I think it’s time I give in and buy a pair.
