Currently: August 2015

Currently-August-2015
(Ok, truthfully this picture isn’t that “current”, as we took it in June, but let’s just go with it)

So, I’ve talked a little about this before, but I’m just kind of blah about blogging lately. Maybe it’s a summer funk, maybe blogging is changing, or maybe I’ve just been enjoying life too much lately to force myself to sit down and blog when I don’t feel like it. There’s definitely something really refreshing about just living life and not worrying about writing blog posts or posting on Instagram, etc. I don’t know if I’ll ever really stop blogging, but it’s nice to not feel as tethered to it as I used to, you know?

Anyway, here’s a little “currently” type of post because it’s easy and fun.

reading: I have totally not finished a book since June. To be honest, I’ve been so head’s down in Steelers news since training camp started at the end of July that before bed (when I usually read a book), I’ve been reading every Steelers news article I can find. I REALLY miss football, guys.

wishing: That the weather would cool down fast! It has been so hot lately, and I’m looking forward to going for lots of walks once it finally starts cooling down. I know it’s lame to complain about heat in the summer, but I feel like I’m allowed to, because I never, ever complain about cold weather.

loving: Meal planning. I’ve been really good about planning our meals every week for the last month or so, which has helped to cut down on our grocery bill and help us to eat pretty healthy. When you have a healthy dinner that means you can have cookies for dessert, right? Asking for a friend…

listening to: Steelers Nation Radio. A few weeks ago, it occurred to me to try searching for “steelers” on iHeart Radio and I discovered that there’s a 24/7 talk radio station dedicated to all things Steelers. Um, guys, this is the kind of stuff my dreams are made of. 

watching: Steelers preseason football (I mean, are you surprised?) It’s been really fun to watch the rookies progress, and I’m looking forward to seeing who makes the final roster. It’s no substitute for regular season football, but it sure is better than nothing. 

looking forward to: We have a lot of exciting stuff coming up over the next few months! Football starting, going to see Jerry Seinfeld (totally one of the items that’s been on my bucket list forever), going to Pittsburgh for the Steelers/Ravens game, a mystery trip that TJ has planned, my birthday, TJ’s 30th birthday, all the holidays, etc. I think the end of 2015 is going be a lot of fun.

What’s going on in your world lately?

    I echo EACH & EVERY word you said/wrote about blogging: Sometimes when I do see I have a bit of time to blog, I…won’t. Instead, I’ll watch some TV, read, make something else, or otherwise live my life.

    I also know I’m not done w/blogging because I believe there’ll be exciting news up ahead that I’d love to document–well after the fact :)–but I’m also not in a rush to write, write, write as I used to be. (I do like IG, though, and definitely use that as my “micro blog.”) Nice to know you feel the same.

    Happy Monday!!
