Currently… (& Can I Be a Gilmore Girl?)

So, apparently it’s November now. Actually… apparently it’s Christmastime, according to all the stores and retailers. We’re not even gonna go there!

Christmas in November?!

Inspired by Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli, I thought I’d talk a little about my current obsessions, thoughts, books, snacks and more. I’d love to hear what you’re currently up to, as well.

Currently Reading

Emma by Jane Austen.

I figured it was time to start making my way through the classics. I’m getting through it a little slowly, but am pleasantly surprised at how much I’m enjoying it. Any Austen fans? =)

Currently reading Emma by Jane Austen

Currently Listening To

Andrew McMahon‘s new album, In the Wilderness.


I heard there was another big album release last week … cough, Taylor Swift. I still haven’t listened to it. I’m not real excited about the direction she’s taken. What were your thoughts?

Currently Pinning

I’m making a conscious effort to pin (are you following me?) more than just food porn. Right now I’m obsessing over these booties and cuffed jeans for fall:


Currently Watching

Gilmore Girls on Netflix. I can’t help it. I love it. I never actually watched Gilmore Girls while it was on, so it’s like discovering a whole new show.


Currently Eating

Kim (@PBeechie)’s Chili Pumpkin Turkey Meatloaf. It’s soo good with this Chipotle mustard I have. The recipe is SO easy, and lasts me 6 meals.

I also picked up the Pumpkin Pie Larabar, since I’m a sucker for seasonal/pumpkin anything. Here’s how I felt about it. Have you tried the seasonal flavors yet?

Currently Excited About

21 days ’til I head to Los Angeles for Thanksgiving! I’ll be spending almost a full week with some friends I haven’t seen in awhile…

My Cali girl friend Karla and I on the red carpet

Then I have a visitor coming to Austin in early December, and will be heading home for a week at Christmas. Lots to look forward to over the next two months!

Can't wait to see my family this Christmas

Currently Griping On

$6 Fireball shots at the bar. WHO DOES THAT?! The whole bottle costs like $17… okay, I’m over it.

Currently Thankful For

This weekend’s extra hour of sleep, brighter mornings, and temperatures cooling down in Texas (to the 70’s — I’ll take it).


Current Wishing For

The ability to take life one day at a time. I’m looking forward to a lot coming up, but I don’t want to wish the days away.


Current Confession

I started watching Shutter Island with a friend this weekend, and couldn’t finish it! It creeped me out hardcore. Has anyone seen it?


Current Triumph

On Friday I ate Halloween candy, drank alcohol, and just didn’t care. It was fun and not something I do all the time, so no regrets.


Current Goal

I hope to do some blog changes/maintenance this weekend. Stay tuned! : )

Spotted at Whole Foods... look, it's (almost) me! ; )

Current Mood

Busy busy! There aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do. But I thrive on the business… it’s way better than being bored, right?

Your Turn-

  • Share some of your “currents” — book, tv show, confession?
  • What are you excited about, thankful for, wishing for?

  1. I think it was through pinterest I found out we were the same person – I wish I was as fashionable as my fashion board but…. #broke

    Ahh Tswift. Like it. Don’t love it. I respect her making a big shift – I just hope her next record is less generic sounding even if it is pop


    • Seriously. I used to Pin so much more .. I miss it. I legitimately onlyyy pin food anymore though.. it’s bad! Haha. I totally live vicariously through my Fashion & Food boards. ;D

      As far as Tswift .. I was totally on board with her country songs. I just think she’s so generic and boring now. Totally not feeling the pop stuff… but I guess I haven’t really given it much of a try.


  2. Gilmore Girls is just so great! I love Alexis Bledel. Have you watched The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants? You should totally finish Shutter Island! It is SCARY but the ending is just so, so powerful! One of my fave movies!!
    I am currently excited about Xmas…I just love all the fuss that builds up until the day comes! 😉


    • I knowww! I know that Gilmore Girls is like, 15 years old, haha .. but I’m enjoying it from the beginning so it’s nice. I think I watched Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants when it first came out … I should totally watch it again. 🙂 And Aahhhhh I don’t think I can! Haha, it was soo disturbing for me.


    • Love Gilmore Girls! =) I’m trying to get my Mom to watch it too so we can watch it together over Christmas 🙂 🙂 .. I’ve never seen either of those shows, but I’ve heard great things. And thanks! It’s from Anthro — I firmly believe every girl should own one 😉


  3. I’m the worst pinner ever. (But I’m doing something right because I’m following you now). I always do it when I have a burst of inspiration, and then never keep up on it. I’m trying to make a conscious effort to put together a fall/winter style board to draw from.

    Also, totally with another commenter. I am addicted to How to Get Away with Murder. Like Law and Order meets Scandal. (Both of which I love)


    • Haha, well thanks, Kay! 🙂 I’m the same way! I go through cycles… I would pin CONSTANTLY when I was commuting to work on the train, but now I tend to fill my spare time with blogging or reading or .. Gilmore Girls. 😉 I have never seen any of those shows, but have heard great things!
