Currently | September 2016

Enjoying: The weather we've had this month, which has been in the low 80s and sunny. Unlike the majority, I'm not ready to let go of summer just yet. To me fall = winter is coming and I strongly dislike winter here in Michigan.
Feeling: Sore. We went for a impromptu 4 mile hike in Ann Arbor yesterday, so today my glutes and shins are a little sore. The hike was hilly with a lot of large rocks and branches. Of course my husband had us run up (and then down) all of said hills.
Loving: That after weeks of searching online I finally found the Michigan State Spartans zip-up I've been looking for. At a mom and pop college apparel store in a mall forty-five minutes away from me.. but the drive was worth it! I would've been really bummed if I ended up empty handed.
Reading: Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty. I'm having a hard time getting into this book, which is unlike any of the other books I've read by Liane. Maybe it's because reading hasn't been a priority lately? Either way I'm hoping to change that soon. 
Watching: Fall Premiers! Gotham, Law & Order: SVU, Chicago PD, How to Get Away with Murder, Quantico, etc. Who else is stoked fall TV is back?! The only show missing is Scandal. I need some Olivia Pope back in my life. We've also been watching Shameless on Netflix, which has been a great show as well.
Wishing: For T to receive a job offer. He's been applying relentlessly since we moved to Ann Arbor and I know that he's starting to get a little stir crazy. So if you have some good vibes or juju to send our way we'd appreciate it! I have to say that he's been an awesome SAHH (Stay at Home Husband) this past month though ;) 
Needing: To hang photos/decor on the walls. We've been in the apartment for 6 weeks now and I'm embarrassed to say that the walls are still completely bare. We have the frames and command strips, but we just haven't gotten them put up yet.
Wearing: This striped dress from Target. Yes, it's maternity. No, I am not pregnant. After seeing Audrey's post I knew that I had to give it a try! I originally ordered it in a S, but thought it was a little too big so I exchanged it for X-Small and it's wonderful. The length is perfect to wear while working with little kiddos, the material is beyond soft and comfy, and you can never go wrong with a simple stripped dress.
Planning: All of the trips! I've been bitten hard by the travel bug. I'm working on three trips for next year and I wouldn't be opposed to adding more :) The best part of working for a public school district is all of the paid time off, a travelers dream!
