This is being written on 31st August but I’m going to schedule it in for whilst we’re away on holibobs so bear with me if it’s a little out of date by then! (Will probably still be raining though, so I’m sure that bit is in context….)
Making :: plans for our wedding – finally getting excited about the little details, like decorations and invitations.
Cooking :: not much – we have tons of food left over from recent barbecues so we’ve mainly been eating burgers/sausages/beef brisket/pulled pork and salad lately!
Drinking :: lots of water – trying to give myself a bit of a detox by flushing out a couple of weekends of excess with a good amount of h2o.
Reading :: just finished Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan, which was very average. (See my Goodreads for what I’ve been ticking off my to-read list – I’ll also be posting about the books I’ve loaded on my Kindle app for my holiday).
Wanting :: to be a bit happier with my body and figure and stop obsessing about getting a flat tum.
Looking :: outside at incessant torrential rain and wondering where summer’s gone.
Playing :: with Bodhi and his Mr Snakes toy. sssssssssssss.
Deciding :: to try and manage my diary better in future, doing something every weekend for months on end is exhausting.
Wishing :: for lots of sunshine and warm weather during our USA trip.
Enjoying :: a few days of chill time before we go away – it’s been too long since I sat on the sofa and watched TV or went to bed early to read! Watched a few too many episodes of Catfish and Say Yes to the Dress.
Waiting :: to get back from the USA to get properly stuck into loving blogging again and writing all of the types of posts I love to write.
Liking :: sushi – never tried it before last week but now I’m a bit addicted!
Wondering :: what my new job will be like, but looking forward to a new challenge (I start a new job in our HR department when we get back from holiday)
Loving :: all of the women’s leadership books I’ve read lately, so inspiring. Highly recommend Sheryl Sandberg – Lean In and Arianna Huffington – Thrive. About to start Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay.
Pondering :: which books to load my kindle up with for my holiday (left it a bit last minute!) – although since I won’t be able to read in the van (I get travel sick!) I’m not sure when I’ll get a chance to read them all.
Considering :: ideas for new tattoos
Watching :: Scandal – now trucking through Season Two and still totally obsessed!
Hoping :: I have packed the right clothes for our trip – difficult to pack for highs of 35 degrees in Vegas and lows of 6 degrees in the Grand Canyon.
Marvelling :: at how beautiful my run along the beach was this morning – where we live is stunning on a sunny morning.
Needing :: a break and some chill time. Too much busy lately.
Smelling :: Bodhi – I know non-dog lovers often hate the smell of dogs but Bodhi always smells so good, his feet smell like digestive biscuits!
Wearing :: ankle boots and jumpers for the first time in a few weeks. I’ve missed comfy cold weather clothes! (shhhh)
Following :: I’ve found loads of fab new blogs lately – I’m going to set up some scheduled tweets whilst I’m away of all my current #bloglove favourites, in case you miss my blog (yeah right) you might find some new ones to read!
Noticing :: it getting much cooler and darker earlier – not looking forward to morning runs in the pitch black come October/November!
Knowing :: how lucky we are at the moment. So much to look forward to.
Thinking :: about food, all the time. Mostly sandwiches, I am a sandwich addict at the moment even though my tummy hates bread.
Feeling :: thankful.
Admiring :: loads of blogs lately – finding so much blogging inspiration at the moment, my bloglovin feed is full of awesomeness!
Sorting :: our honeymoon – flights booked and hotel for the first week almost booked – we are going to Bali for a month, eep!
Buying :: last minute holiday bits like new sandals, travel minis and sunnies (and also thinking about A/W clothes at the same time!)
Getting :: tired so easily lately – not expecting much sleep whilst we’re away though as we’re mostly camping! I could do with a week off just to sleep.
Bookmarking :: wedding blogs and wedding ideas
Disliking :: having no energy at the moment – I’ve set my alarm for 6.15 most mornings this week and haven’t managed to run yet, finding exercise really hard work for some reason.
Opening :: the save the dates we ordered – we have postcards and magnets to send out to our wedding guests, I’m so excited! Tom has stopped me going overboard with twine and ink stamps.
Giggling :: at X Factor – part of me hates that I love it so much but I can’t help getting excited that it’s on again!
Snacking :: on bits from my healthy snack jar – full of treats like Frank bars, Meridian Peanut Butter bars and Bounce balls.
Coveting :: Pink hair and mermaid hair so I tried a temporary colour from Bleach London for my holiday, it washed out after one wash though – sad face!
Helping :: my Mum think of ideas for her new blog! Exciting!
Hearing :: Current favourite song: Daughter – Medicine …
