Currently, I Am...

I was planning on getting an IVF Survival Kit post up last week, but life got in the way. So be on the look out for that, it will be up hopefully next week. For now, here is my current life post, these are quick and easy posts that I like to get up monthly, I hope y'all enjoy! Maybe you can share your current life on your blog, let me know if you do!

Currently, I Am....

Enjoying: The growth my beauty blog has seen in the last couple of months. I have worked my butt off in getting more, better and consistent content up and it's paying off. 

Feeling: a bit pressured to get some of this weight off! I have set a goal to have 35 pounds off by mid-May...why May? Well we hope to have our next IVF during the Summer and our consult will more than likely be in May or June, so I'm hoping I have lost at least 35 pounds by then. 

Wishing: I had more time in the day to work my butt off for this blog. I would like to put in the same amount of time and effort into this blog, as I do my beauty blog. But it's unrealistic, I don't have the time for. With a full-time job, a husband and fur baby to take care of, along with house work and laundry, etc...I just can't fit it all in right now. One day! Until then, thank you, for sticking around and reading this little 'ole blog of mine!

Loving: my scale! Funny thing is, last month, I was hating it! LOL! I've lost 10 pounds, definitely keeps me motivated to stick with my workouts and healthy-er eating habits! 

Hating: the windy weather we've been having lately. You can always tell when Spring is about to hit Texas when the wind arrives, we don't get a nice Spring like other states do. 

Anticipating: Spring Break! I'm so looking forward to having an entire week off of work! (Perks of being a School Nurse!) It just so happens that our 5 year Wedding Anniversary also falls during Spring Break, hopefully we can plan a mini getaway! 

Watching: The Real Housewives of Potomac...I know, I hate that I'm so into the trashy reality TV shows, but I can't help it! I'm not sure how I feel about the ladies yet...anyone else watch it? 

Reading: I've been horrible about reading lately, I haven't shopped around for any new books. Have any suggestions? I'm quite picky about my books too, #thestruggle! 

Cooking: I'll be honest, I'm not the best cook, but I try my best. One night I was so tired and had no energy to cook a full dinner, so my husband took over...he cooked us breakfast! I don't like breakfast, but I love having breakfast for dinner! LOL! So for the last few weeks, we have breakfast for dinner once a week...and let me tell you, it's heavenly. 

Drinking: A few days before Aunt Flow came to visit I had a massive craving for Dr. Pepper, so I cheated and had a couple. Now when I'm wanting something fizzy and a tad bit sweet, I go for ginger ale instead. I'm also still trying to load up on water!

Pinning: About 2 weeks ago I organized all of my Pinterest boards. You're probably thinking, there's such a thing? I'm not sure, but I do it! LOL! I like to delete and move pins once a year, I'm crazy I know. So because of that, I haven't been pinning much, just the occasional gluten-free recipe and a few of my beauty blog pins as well.

Thank you for reading! xo 



  1. Big fan of "brupper" {Breakfast for supper} AND I'm a complete housewives junkie. I haven't checked out your beauty blog but it's up next!

    1. Oh good, I'm not the only one who is still into the housewives franchise! LOL! The only one I haven't watched are NY, I just never got into that one. Thank you so much, Brianna! xo

    2. I LOOOOVE NY. That and BH are my fav's. Would you mind if I used this post template?!?! I love the idea of "Currently, I am"
      xo, B

  2. BH and NJ are my faves! Go for it girl, I'd love to read yours!!

  3. I love trashy TV...Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is one of my favs. Future hubby plays hockey on Tuesday nights so it works out perfectly for me.

    I love your beauty blog. I only wish I could so my make up like you can do. Ugh, I am in such a slump and it's getting to me! I haven't changed my make up in forever (biggest reason is I don't know how).

  4. I can't stop watching RH of Potomac and I'm not even sure I really like it. :) I can empathize with you and wanting to shed a few pounds before starting the next round of IVF. Wishing you the best. xo

  5. I do organize my Pinterest boards every once in a while as well, to have the actually help me find stuff.
