Currently.


Wow. I haven't done a currently post in forever and behold a photo of me! It's really just there to document my current hair colour, which I'll be changing real soon. Read on for more info on that...

Reading. I have a huge pile of books that I really need to get started with. And actually finish some that I've started a year ago. However, I did just finish Bringing Up Bebe. Which I loved. I'm also amazed that, after talking to my mom, she used the same parenting tactics that the French! Way to go, mom! But yes, I go through cycles of reading non-stop to just not reading at all. I'm somewhat in a lull at the moment. However I just downloaded the audiobook of The X-Files Cold Cases to tide me over until the new season starts this fall.

Doing. Getting the random things that we need for the apartment. It's weird, really. Alex & I have been in the same place for a year and a half now, but it's only been the two of us for about 6 months, when my sister moved out. We've turned our spare bedroom into an office where I can work on my content writing for my other job and we've had to rearrange things in there. I finally got a proper desk chair that moves up and down so I'm no longer hunched over.

Watching. Twin Peaks and Game of Thrones. Outside of those two shows, since it's summer, we're re-watching old shows until the new ones start up in Fall. We just finished re-watching 30 Rock for the second time and just started on Parks & Rec for like the fourth time. As always, we watch a lot of Bob's Burgers.

Making. Megan and I just recently found an awesome pattern online to make our own baby aprons. Or as they're affectionately called, "baprons". So I've been using my sewing machine a lot lately - which I'm pretty sure is the most I've used it since I got it. I mean, it's never too early to start making things for an eventual baby, right? At first Alex thought I was going a little crazy, but then I reminded him that making aprons for a baby whenever we do get pregnant sounds downright awful to me.

Looking Forward To. Changing my hair colour this Tuesday. For the wedding I lightened my hair to a medium brown so it wouldn't blend in with my wedding dress and a few weeks ago I got the most random urge to dye my hair red. I'm really looking forward to changing my hair to red again. In fact it's been over 4 years since it was red and this time around I'm going for a different tone. You can head over to my pinterest to see the colour that I'm contemplating.

Listening To. Three bands on vinyl and in heavy rotation. Ever since Alex found Talking Head's Speaking In Tongues on vinyl, I can't seem to stop listening to it. It's such a fun album and whenever I listen to it I just want to dance. So yes, I've been listening to Talking Heads, Tears for Fears and The Fixx. As for outside our vinyl collection, I just listened to the newest Nine Inch Nails' album and I'm liking it a lot.

So, how about you? What are you up to lately? Let me know in the comments below!
