Currently: June

Hello! I can’t believe it’s already June- once again this past month seemed to fly by. June 2014 has seemed so far away for so long, mostly because it’s when The Blend Retreat is taking place. We’ve been planning it for almost a year, so it’s crazy that it’s finally about to happen. We’re also just weeks away from summer- which is by far my favorite season of the year. Even though I won’t be doing a lot of my normal summer activities for a while, I’m still excited to get outside and to have friends from the east coast visit.

Here’s what’s going on in my world, currently:

Currently: June

Current books: Nothing! Paige told me about this book and I’m planning to start it next.

Current music: Since I’m seeing Lionel Ritchie at Red Rocks this month, I’ll share this classic feel-good tune:

Current guilty pleasure: I’ll admit it- I watched at least 10 hours of The Kardashians while I was laid up after surgery.

Current nail color: I’m keeping April’s photo on here because my nails literally look exactly the same right now.


Current drink:  Water- all day long!

Current food: This popcorn:


I love popcorn- this and Skinny Pop are tied for my favorite.

Current favorite show: I know I’m so late to the game on this – but hands down, Orange Is the New Black.


I finally got with the program and signed up for Netflix (and binge-watched most of the entire season in about 3 days).

Current wish list: the iPhone 6 (whenever that comes out)

Current needs: landscaping for our backyard (including sod and a sprinkler system)- it’s still just a big pile of dirt!

Current triumphs: Being mostly unpacked at our new house and finally buying a guest bed. Also, planning a (hopefully) successful Blend Retreat!

Current bane of my existence: I’ll be predictable here and say my knee. I definitely expected that it would be tough to deal with recovery, but man- it’s really hard to just slow down. My mind wants to go a lot faster than my body does and I’m still trying to figure out how to do some pretty basic things (like walking and going down stairs).

Current celebrity crush: Paul Rudd (duh)- with this beard!


Yes, that’s his wife.

Current indulgence: Chocolate-covered strawberries that Erin sent me. I want these all the time now!

Current blessing: I’ve definitely grown a new appreciation for a lot of things since I had surgery- mainly my husband (for taking such good care of me) and my overall health.

Current outfit:  Shorts and a tank top- it’s hot outside!

Current excitement: Taking a road trip with my bestie to Utah on Wednesday to for The Blend Retreat. I’ve never drive west of Vail, so I’m really excited to see the other side of Colorado. And, of course, I’m excited for the retreat. 

Current mood: Content and a little anxious- I’ve got a mile-long to-do list before I leave on Wednesday!

Have a great day!

    You’re going to see Lionel Richie???!! Jealous!! And I was literally laughing because as I looked at the picture of Paul Rudd, I was thinking, “Is that…?” and then scrolled down and saw your next comment. I didn’t even know he was married!

    Have a blast at Blend!!
