Watching: Fall TV is back! I’m a little bit of a TV junkie. I’m not someone who turns on the TV just to watch something, but I have a lot of shows that I watch loyally. I’m excited for my favorites to come back and to try out some new shows.

Reading: Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I’m only about halfway through because it’s long, but I’m really enjoying it so far.

Listening: Forever 35. I think I’m late to the party on this podcast, but I’m really enjoying going back through their archive. It’s a podcast about beauty and self-care with a different guest each week.

Wearing: It’s that awkward time of year where it’s still warm, but not summer anymore. I feel like my summer clothes aren’t appropriate and it’s too warm to break out the fall clothes.

Looking forward to: Finally moving! More to come on that later, but I’ve been bouncing around for several months so I’m excited to finally get settled in my new place.

I can’t believe it’s the end of July already! This summer has just flown by.

Watching: Sharp Objects. HBO produced a miniseries based on Gillian Flynn’s novel starring Amy Adams. I’ve only watched the first episode, but it’s so so good. HBO did an amazing job with Big Little Lies, and it looks like they have with this one too.

Reading: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. I’ve pretty much just started reading this so I don’t have an opinion on it yet. The movie is coming out next week so I wanted to read the book first. And the book has rave reviews on Goodreads.

Listening: My Favorite Murder. I’ve discovered recently that I really love listening to podcasts during the day. It helps the day go by faster when I have something to listen to in the background. I’ve been getting through 2 or 3 episodes of My Favorite Murder a day lately. They describe themselves as a true crime comedy, and they discuss two true crime stories an episode. I love everything true crime, and this is right up my alley.

Wearing: Jeans. I used to live for warmer weather because I loved wearing skirts and dresses, but lately I’ve been gravitating more towards jeans. I think it’s partly because I have more tops that I like wearing than I used to and partly because I’ve found that jeans that actually fit me and are comfortable. I always wore American Eagle jeans because I thought that’s what fit me, but it turns out jeans are really comfortable when they actually fit you.

Eating: Tacos. Seriously, it’s like I can’t get enough. I think what I really love about tacos is that there’s so much variety, you can eat them for every meal and always have something different.

Happy official first day of summer!

Watching: Younger. It’s the one show that I really look forward to watching every week. I started watching the first season when it came out because I was excited to see Hilary Duff back in a TV series, and I’ve been hooked!

Reading: The Royal We. It’s taking me a long, long time to get through though. Maybe because I recently read Royals by Rachel Hawkins, I’ve already filled my royal fix?

Listening: S-Town. I’ve been hearing a lot about this podcast so I gave it a try on a road trip to Raleigh. By the end of the series, everything still felt really unresolved to me, but listening to it certainly made the time fly by.

Playing: Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery. It’s borderline embarrassing how hooked I am on this game. You get to be a witch/wizard at Hogwarts and take classes and build relationships. I’ve been having a lot of fun with it.

Wearing: True & Co.’s front closure bra. I also tried one of their True Body bras that you pull over your head and ended up returning it. Honestly, getting it on and off was just too much work. But I really love the front closure bra. It basically feels like I’m wearing a really comfortable sports bra. The only downside is that because its shape, it doesn’t work well with tank tops, a.k.a. a lot of my summer wardrobe.

Loving: Summer. I’m soaking up all of the summer adventures. We’ve already gotten a lot of time on the water and have a beach trip planned for the 4th. I always feel like summer flies by before I’ve had time to take advantage of it so I’m squeezing everything in.

I do actually intend on using this space and writing blog posts, it’s just been off to slow start because life is a little crazy at the moment.

Watching: Ashely I. and Jared’s The Story of Us. For any other Bachelor fans out there, this is a must watch! Ashley I. and Jared are finally together. This video is long, but so sweet and so worth watching.

Reading: Criminal by Karin Slaughter. I love a good thriller/crime novel, and in my opinion Karin Slaughter can do no wrong. I’ve been tearing through her Will Trent series as fast as I can get them from my local library. This one isn’t my favorite, but I’m still enjoying it.

Listening: Young Adulting Podcast. The Stripe‘s Grace Atwood has teamed up with Becca Freeman for a weekly book club podcast. They alternate weeks between book discussions and advice. They focus on young adult books, which is a genre that I love, and I’ve loved listening to them discuss books.

Feeling: Excited. This Memorial Day Weekend is going to be packed with goat yoga Saturday and a family wedding Sunday. I’m equally looking forward to both!

Eating: Not dairy and wheat. I’d been having some stomach issues and after a visit to the doctor and lots of needles, I found out that I’m lactose intolerant and allergic to wheat. Since avoiding dairy and wheat over the last few weeks my stomach has felt so much better. But I do really miss cheese and bread.

Wearing: Carly Jean Los Angeles. I’m seriously obsessed! They have the perfect basics. And all of it is so soft and comfortable, even their denim! I started a no shopping year in February, and ordered a new pair of jeans from CJLA because mine all had holes in the crotch (so the original purchase was allowed). But I’ve made a couple subsequent purchases that were not allowed because their stuff is so good.

Loving: Overnight oats. Lately I’ve been making them with half a mashed banana, 1/2 cup oats, 3/4 cup almond milk, and 1 tablespoon peanut butter powder. I could literally eat it for every meal!
