Currently: October

Today I decided to link up with Anne for her currently post. I used to link up all the time in the beginning of blogging and I haven't in a really long time. So I just thought I'd do it today for the fun of it. 

Styling: Family pictures outfits.  We have been trying for 3 weeks to get these done and it keeps getting moved back thanks to weather and family events and what not.  So getting clothes together has been tricky because when it gets pushed back, my mind starts to wonder if I picked the right clothes haha. 

Saving: I'm always looking for ways to save money. Always. Most of the ways I can find to save money in our lifestyle is in the grocery area.  We don't have any kind of monthly subscriptions or debt at this point.  So to save on groceries, I'm using coupons here and there, but mostly I use the Ibotta app to get a little money back from things I'll be buying anyway. 

Picking: Flowers from my garden. It's a little late in the season for this, but we have had quite a bit of rain lately and it's making my flowers so vibrant and I love it. So I picked some to keep summertime around a little longer in our house. We love summer. 

Searching: I'm not really searching for anything. I have been finding a lot of new podcasts to listen to. I've never been one to listen to podcasts but now I'm doing more of that.

Making: I've been baking a lot. I made banana bread today.  This time of year makes me start baking and wanting everything warm. Also, I made this really yummy tortellini dinner the other night and I was so glad that I had a few leftovers for lunch yesterday.  I made it with a lemon basil sauce and it was delicious and felt light and healthy.  

What is your favorite dinner that you make?


  1. Picking the outfits for the photos always takes way longer than actually getting them taken, doesn't it? And I'm always searching for new podcasts to listen too! Lately I've been enjoying the Popcast, but What Should I Read Next and The New Yorker Radio Hour are my two favorites.

  2. I always want to make banana bread in the fall! There's just something about it that makes me think of fall and cooler weather!
