Currently: Cobalt and Stripes

Happy Wednesday! Last month, so many of my favorite bloggers were doing 'Currently' posts, which were a lot of fun to read, so I decided to join in on the fun this time! (plus it's something else to read besides the regular 'this is what I'm wearing, blah blah blah')

Currently...

Smelling: Paint drying. Hubby's out of town, so while he's away I'm painting the entry way from the garage/stairs down into the basement. I've never painted a room by myself before, so hopefully it turns out okay!

Loving: The beautiful weather we've been having in MN! It was in the 80's this past weekend, so I was able to pull out my shorts and tanks again. It is kind of strange to be wearing shorts when the leaves are changing, but I'll take all the warm weather I can get before the snow starts flying!

Planning: Our trip to Disney World and Universal Studios coming up soon! I'm so excited! I'm such a kid at heart :)

Baking: What's baking? :-P Haha I'm just kidding, but in all honestly I don't do a whole lot of baking. I love cooking, but I guess I just don't like having all the treats and goodies around for me to eat. The last thing I baked were soft pretzels a few weeks ago and probably the next time I'll bake will be some kind of dessert when my family comes over for dinner this weekend (probably something pumpkin related?).

Celebrating: My little blog turns 1 year old on Saturday! It's crazy it's been that long already! It's still a work in progress, and I'm still figuring out what I want it to be, but it's been a fun year getting to know other bloggers and actually sticking with it for a whole year :)


Maxi: Target (similar/similar)
Cardigan: Old Navy (similar)
Scarf: Old Navy (similar)
Earrings: Edith Marie (similar inspired/'real' Kendra Scott)

  12. First of all you look gorgeous. I want a B+W Striped Maxi Dress so badly, hopefully by next Summer. Second I loved this post and may copy your idea sometime soon. I laughed at your "smelling" part. Ohh and congrats on 1 year of blogging. When I discovered your blog, I decided to read everything from the first post, so you have a dedicated reader and fan over here. ;-)
