TGIF, friends! About dang time, amiright?? First thing’s first: The BIGGEST thankyousomuch to all of you who sent such sweet messages, comments, emails, + DMs after our gender reveal announcement this week. It’s fun enough getting to share in such an exciting whirlwind with family + friends…to have that many more friends from the internet is beyond cool. So, thanks. 🙂 Today we’re kickin’ back for some chit chat on what’s up currently. The last CURRENTLY post was oh so fun to put together, and…oh so long ago. So it was due time. Grab yo’ coffee, grab yo’ wine, and let’s just get it started.
P.S. We shot this look earlier in summer…when I wasn’t as pregnant as I am now, obvi. 😉
WEARING // Alllllllll the comfy clothes. 🙂 If pregnancy has given me one thing, it’s the excuse to wear pajama pants until it’s time to switch into leggings. 😉 Really tho, the softer the better. I learned that the Barefoot Dreams way this past Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If it doesn’t make me want to curl up by a fireplace with a book, it’s not worth wearing (right now).
MAKING // Plans for New York Fashion Week. HOW is it that time already?! Good Lawd. My feet are already sore + my belly is already hungry for a good NY bagel. Because #carbs. Also been making the easiest, yummiest pasta salad for summer: bowtie noodles, chopped up cucumbers + tomatoes, chopped up cheese cubes, light Italian dressing, S+P to taste. VOILA. Suuuuuuper simple, but super delish, and great to meal prep on a Sunday for the week ahead’s lunches!
LISTENING TO // The CUR Q3 Playlist! When you guys starting asking me when the next quarterly playlist would be out, my soul sang a little. 🙂 Q3’s playlist is FULL o’ jams. Per usual, I try to have ’em start off strong, then transition to more chill vibes to have playing during the day while you’re working etc. before transitioning again to more upbeat, hollah-the-day-is-done vibes. Happy listening.
WISHING // That there was a Jimmy John’s near me, and that they delivered. And that they made sandwiches specifically for pregnant chicas. Because it seems like everyone and her mom craves a solid hoagie THE SECOND you get pregnant and can’t have one (lest you take the meat off to heat up, which isn’t the end of the world…BUT STILL). Also wishing that The Good Doctor and This is Us were already back on. I can no longer wait until September. And also wishing that someone would deep clean my house. Any takers? 😉
CRUSHING ON // These hot pink Nikes (on sale!), the cutest fall doormat (fall-lelujah!), a dress worthy of making lemonade (I actually just bought this myself – code ERICA15 will getcha an exclusive CUR discount!), Kate Spade’s fall-ready watch (can’t beLEAF the cuteness…), another cozy cardi (looks so soft!), + this leopard tunic top (comes in so many prints, under $50, AND bump friendly?! #bless).
EATING // Spicy beef Vermicelli soup leftovers from our new favorite Vietnamese place in town. We forced ourselves to mix it up for date night this week and stumbled upon the best hole in the wall! I got fresh squeezed limeade, too (our waiter gave us the lowdown: in Vietnam, apparently they don’t have lemons – just limes!), + J got a jackfruit smoothie (which was supposed to taste lke JuicyFruit gum apparently, but was approximately 35 times more delish than that) and a vermicelli bowl with grilled pork + shrimp + a dang good spring roll. 100% chance of returning today for lunch. PHO SHO. 😉
EXCITED FOR // The Pentatonix concert we’re going to this weekend! HOLLAH. If you have not yet heard this song, #YoureWelcome. You are SO welcome. Happy Friday. TGIF.
THINKING ABOUT // How I can be more intentional in life. Across the board. Mostly in my faith. But also in my relationships. And also in my work. Intentionality all around, folks.
SCHEDULING // Solid QT with J, + solid TLC/R&R with myself. It’s beginning to really sink in how we only have a few more months left of just us. And while I have no doubt this net phase of life will be so beautiful in so many ways, it’s a little bittersweet, too – so I’m just soaking up all of the little moments we have together as a duo before we’re a trio. 🙂 Next up: Some sorta long weekend getaway slash anniversary trip slash babymoon. Any recommendations?
GRATEFUL FOR // .A husband who does the dishes because he knows how much his wife hates doing the dishes. Also who paints his wife’s toes when she’s too pregnant to reach them herself. Bless you, husband.
PROCRASTINATING WITH // Thoughts of the PSL returning next week. I’ve changed my desktop background in excited anticipation.
WATCHING // Bachelor in Paradise. Currently just living for Monday + Tuesday nights. Does not get any better than this, folks. Except it does, when it’s accompanied with real Cabernet instead of the fake wine they sell at the grocery store for us alcohol-free folks. No fun. 😉
DREAMING ABOUT // Our baby’s personality. This mix of J + I is bound to be a wild time. I know she’ll just be a sleeping/crying/eating bundle of squish for the first few months, but as soon as the giggles come, WATCH OUT, WORLD. Oh yeah, and she’s a she. 🙂
Aaaaaaaand JAMS TIME.
What are you up to currently?
What’ve you got on your weekend calendar? Go raise da roof – it’s FRIYAY.
