Currently … | December 2017

The last of my monthly currents for 2017 – whoo! Exciting and a bit weird. Let’s jump right into it.

Currently December 2017
 
Excited for | my hair appointment Friday! I’m sure all of you are, too so you can quit hearing me obsess about it … My Pinterest board has all sorts of inspiration. We’ll see what I end up with.

Reading | about to start How To Find Love in a Bookshop by Veronica Henry. I admittedly haven’t been reading as much as usual because well, #holidayseason. But, my usual monthly book post is coming next week, and in the meantime you can see what I read the last couple months here and here.

Watching | all the Christmas shows! The Great Christmas Light Fight and Great American Baking Show are two of our favorites. But, all of that will have to be put aside this weekend when The Crown season 2 is released on Netflix! I AM SO EXCITED.

Listening to | Waitress the Musical soundtrack. ICYMI, we saw the show live last weekend and now I can’t get the music out of my head. She Used To Be Mine literally slays my heart every time I hear it.

Wearing | joggers and textured sweaters – not together, of course. I can’t enough of these plaid joggers. I’ve been living in them since Saturday. And, everyone and their mom, including me, ordered this sweater during the black Friday/cyber Monday deals. I can understand why – it’s so warm and so pretty.

Wanting | to learn how to crochet! My mom recently has taken up the hobby, and it looks fun (not to mention stress-relieving). This chunky-knit blanket will be my first project.

Looking forward to | partaking in a few more holiday-themed activities throughout the next couple weeks. We hope to find/visit a couple light shows, and we’ll probably end up at our favorite Nutcracker in the Castle. I fully admit to feeling a little Grinch-like for the first time ever in my life, so I’m attempting to counter that with all and any holiday excursions!

Share some of your own currents with me in the comments!

Linking up with Kristen.

  2. I am loving joggers and chunky cable knit sweaters too! Those plaid joggers are too cute and perfect for the holidays! I can’t wait to see what you do with your hair! I was so nervous to chop mine, but once I did I feel like I’m never going back ha!

  5. ooh can’t wait to hear your thoughts on How To Find Love in a Bookshop – it’s on my list. i will have to check out that soundtrack – i’m assuming it’s the same story as the movie? or am i totally wrong? that blanket is gorgeous, what a fun hobby to try out. good luck!

    • Yes, same story as the movie! It was so, so good live. Can’t wait to give crocheting a try. I’ll probably be horrible at it, lol.

    Those plaid joggers are so cute, and they look very comfy! I hope you enjoy your upcoming read – I am really curious about that one. I want to try and read more this month if I can, but I also want to do all the Christmas things, so we’ll see how it goes! LOL

  9. I’m so excited for the second season of The Crown too! I hope that it’s as good as the first season! And I’ve been off on my reading game too, but I’m hoping that I’ll be able to read some more soon!

    I can’t wait to see what you do with your hair! And I really need to start watching The Crown. The weather is supposed to be horrible this weekend so maybe I’ll binge watch it then! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    • Horrible weather in Florida?! I find that hard to believe unless there’s another hurricane coming, ha. 😉 Hope you’re able to snuggle up and get some TV time in!

    That sweater is pretty! I have also been watching all of the ABC Family Christmas shows haha. Last week when that Disney one with Nick Lachey came on Chris kept trying to talk to me and I was like umm silence please lol.

  14. I still need to watch the first season of The Crown- I’m so behind on TV shows! You should definitely teach yourself to knit. For some reason I only tend to do it when my mom is visiting, but I’m always able to pick it back up really quickly.

    Posted 12.6.17 Reply
    • Oh, I had no idea that you knew how to knit! It doesn’t look too complicated, but I’m sure I’ll be horrible at it at first – ha!

  • #Bookworms, rejoice! This is our kinda day! 📚 On #WorldBookDay, I simply want to say thank you to all authors. Your characters, stories and words change my life daily, and I can’t imagine a life without them. Happy reading to all! #bookstagram
  • “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” Alice, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

Do you ever experience quiet moments of total content while on vacation, no matter where you are?
  • Catalina Island is nothing short of enchanting. ☀️ #catalinacasino #vacationmode #frommyview
  • California vacation part one: ☑️. Thanks for the magic, memories and OG nostalgia Disneyland! #adultsatdisney #toontown #wallsofdisney
  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
  • Today was a good day to have a great day. ☀️ #happy #thursdaythoughts
