Currently in September
Another month gone by and it’s time for Currently with Anne and…wait a minute….I’m the co-host this month! So it’s Currently with Anne and Me! I’m so excited to be co-hosting and I can’t wait to see what you’re all Currently up to. Here are the Current happenings in our world!
Trying – I’m going to try out a Stitch Fix style clothing box that is all bought on consignment or thrift called Secondhands Fashion. I saw something about it on Facebook over the weekend and while I should be actually trying to stop buying things, my thrifty heart had to check it out. It will possibly take up to three weeks for my first box, but I’ll definitely review it here when it comes in!
Reading – I just finished the book It’s Ok to Laugh, Crying is Cool Too by Nora McInerny Purmort. I’ll have a review on this book later this week but wow, what a read. Nora is a bit of a local celebrity around here and quite an inspiration. Next up on my list I’ve decided I’m going to read Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist. I have heard a lot about this book recently and it fits with my word of the year “present” and I think it’s something I need to read.
Decorating – We’ve been shifting some artwork at home after we inherited a couple of paintings that belonged to Nate’s grandparents. My new favorite is this awesome Oktoberfest painting that now greets you as you enter our basement when you head down to get a beer. It’s pretty much perfect for us.
Hoping – That we will be getting a nice stretch of Fall weather soon. I am tired of humidity, monsoon type rains, and the ever popular mosquito. I’m very ready for sweaters, boots, fires, cider…so bring on the cool (notice I say cool, not cold) weather!
To-Do Listing – Speaking of Oktoberfest, it’s getting to the point of the year where I’ll be making some to-do lists for that event. We’re hosting it the first weekend of October and because it’s our one big party for the year, there always seems to be a lot that needs to be done. It’s not like we don’t clean our house, but yeah…there is a lot to do in the coming weeks!
So there you have it! If you’d like to add your own Currently post, link up with us below and be sure to link back to Anne and me in your post. Join Anne and her next co-host Jacqui next month when we’ll be sharing what we’re currently: cheers-ing, organizing, dreaming, buying and listening. Thanks again for having me Anne!
