As I post this I’m halfway to Florida to start a 5 1/2 day vacation. Hello sun, bikinis, cousin time, reading, and relaxation. I thought today would be a fun day to bring the “Current” survey back, as it’s been awhile since I last posted it.
Current book: A Nantucket Christmas. I loveeeee Christmas books and am already in the Christmas spirit. Make it a Christmas chick-flick book and I AM IN HEAVEN.
Current music: I’m really obsessed with Keith Urban’s newest CD “Fuse.” I’ve had it on repeat since it came out I think in September. I fly home Wednesday afternoon and am seeing him in concert Thursday night. I actually had to move my vacation around because of the show! The things I do for Keith and his freakin’ adorable guitarist.
Current guilty pleasure: CrossFit. This might not seem like a guilty pleasure to some, but I’m so addicted. I went Monday-Thursday this week and already have separation anxiety from my peeps.
I totally scheduled my flight home around the CrossFit schedule. I land at 11:25, and I’m hoping it’s on time, because with the airport so close to the box, I can get there for the 12:30 class, and then head into work to catch up on emails.
Current drink: Water. It doesn’t get too exciting on the Whole 30 drink wise, but water is always my go-to drink. I will get crazy this vacation and have lemon water. Party animal!
Current food: I’m really loving my sweet potato hash and mixed nuts with apple slices. I look forward to eating those the most every day.
Current show: Castle. Still. I’m obsessed.
Current wish list: I really want a pair of Lululemon workout pants! Mom, Christmas list? Just don’t look at the price and close your eyes when you order. 😉
Current triumphs: That I have survived 10 full days and on my 11th day of the Whole 30. I really don’t understand how easy it has been for me. It’s been easy to say no to all processed foods, and peanut butter, but my biggest craving is a goddamn breath mint! I can handle the no gum chewing, but let me pop a damn mint!
Current celebrity crush: See above. Brian Nutter. A man in a white v-neck. Ugh. Killing me. Hashtag drollest. Hashtag fanmedown. Hashtag fathermyfivebabies.
Current needs: Well, if I’m flying, it’s probably to pee, since I go every 10 minutes. Otherwise, I have a need to relax all week and soak in the sun. I also really need to start on my Christmas list because my Mom is stressing me out asking every few days for it. I guess I’ll work on it this vacation!
Current indulgence: Well, there’s no big indulgences over here food wise since I’m on the Whole 30, but I suppose buying new socks and underwear for vacation is my latest indulgence. That’s kind of weak. Let’s just say my vacation IS my indulgence.
Current Slang: Beautimous. I think this is from Honey Boo Boo. Is that what the show is called? My girl Amber kept saying it on her Bach Party and wedding night. It’s annoying but I love it.
Current Blessing: That I can afford to take a vacation and get to spend quality time with my lovely cousin. Love my family.
Current outfit: Workout pants, trainers, tank and hoodie. My favorite airplane outfit. I travel in comfort, not style. A lady I work with said that she would never be caught traveling in workout shoes/clothes. Well then, you can guess who I didn’t tell my travel outfit plans to! 😉
Current excitement: This vacation and meeting a special someone while I’m here. I really hope it happens and I won’t talk about it further because I always jinx things, but if it happens, I’ll gush!
Current mood: Excited and more than ready to relax. I cannot wait to step away from work for the week, but I do plan on monitoring my work email so I’m not overwhelmed when I return to the office. And by monitor, I mean delete all unnecessary emails so that I don’t return to the office to 800 emails. Yes, that will happen. I was out sick last week for one day and returned to 164 emails.
Andddd enough work talk, I’m ready to kick-start this vacation. I will be blogging while I’m away. Hey, it is MY vacation, and I’d love to do blog maintenance while I have all of the free time. Nikki and I plan on sleeping in, working out, and relaxing on the beach all day. We aren’t spending a lot of cash while we are here, but we do have a few nature parks we want to visit and we’ll go out to eat a few nights, but the amusement parks aren’t on our list of things to do.
What should I do while in Florida?!
