The Sunday Currently #9

  I missed last week, it feels good to be back!
Reading: The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I've seen it on tons of reading lists and a few book clubs, so I was curious to see how it was. I'm only a few chapters in, but really liking it so far.
Writing: more blog posts than I have in awhile, yay!
Listening: the shows Justin's watching. First it was Bob's Burgers, now Falling Skies.
Thinking: how nice our apartment looks with everything arranged and in its place. Home sweet home!
Smelling: nothing
Wishing: Justin didn't have to go to Pennsylvania for work on Tuesday. He'll be gone for a week and I'm going to miss him :(
Hoping: our little goddaughter Amelia doesn't arrive until he gets back, so we can meet her together!
Wearing: sweats just kidding! a black and white striped maxi dress :)
Loving: all the owls that are under our tv...the majority of my collection is living there now and they make me happy when I see them.
Wanting: another weekend off, pretty please?
Needing: to get a lot of wedding planning done this month, only 3 more to go!
Feeling: slightly stressed, but happy
Clicking: blogs, blogs and more blogs...I'm SO behind!

Linking up with Lauren for this post!

Hello Box!

I signed up for the May Hello Box over at Pink on the Cheek and I'm so glad I did! The idea was to be matched up with another blogger who has similar interests and get to know them, help with blog things, and send each other a little something in the mail.

I was introduced to Rachel from My Wholesome Home, who has become one of my closest blogging friends! I've enjoyed guest posting for her and having her on here to meet you all as well. She is seriously one of the nicest people I've known from blogging :) It actually makes me kind of sad that she lives so far away; we'll never actually meet in real life. But blogging friends forever! Oh yes, and she sent me these lovelies in the mail...

So much awesome stuff, I'm gonna have a spa day after work one of these days with all of this! And the Vegas magnet is displayed on my fridge, along with the pretty peacock card.

Thanks for everything this past month Rachel, I'm glad to have met you!! :)

Review: Cardstore

I was really excited when I was contacted by Lauren at Cardstore about reviewing a card. They have so many unique cards to choose from, whatever your style. They even have photo cards, if that's something you're into! The site walks you through the whole process, so it's really easy and fun!

Since Justin and I have a little goddaughter who will be arriving any day now, I thought it would be fun to make a baby card! After looking through all the cute cards, this is the one I chose:

I was able to personalize the card with her name, which I loved! And that little elephant is just too adorable!

Here is the inside of the card:

I got to decide what to write here too. If it's hard to read, it says, "There's a whole wide world of wonderful to look forward to! We're so happy for you!! Can't wait to babysit :)"

I can't wait to give this card to Kristin and Zach (the parents to-be) when Amelia gets here! I was very happy with how my card turned out and would like to create more for other occasions. If you're needing a special card for someone, head over to Cardstore and have a look!

Note: I was compensated for this post in exchange for a free card of my choice. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Still blogging, just busy!

Hey all! Sorry I kind of fell off the face of the earth for awhile. Between trying to unpack and decorate the new apartment, plus working and spending time with Justin I've been slacking on my blogging.
BUT! I have a bunch of posts lined up for this week, some of which will probably even be on the same days!
* What I got in my Hello Box!
*A review of a card site!
*TWO Liebster Awards, rolled into one!
*A Currently post, even though it's not Sunday!
Alright, I need to finish getting ready for work, but I shall return sometime tonight! :)

The Sunday Currently #8

I've been such an absent blogger this week, but the good news is we finally got all moved into our new apartment yesterday, so I should have more time now!
And with that, it's time for the usual Sunday routine!
Reading: haven't had time to read much of anything, which makes me sad. Today I'm playing catchup on all the blogs I follow!
Writing: my monthly to-do list and schedule of bills...gotta love being an adult.
Listening: to footsteps on the floor above me. It's weird transitioning from a house to an apartment again, so many odd noises to get used to.
Thinking: that I should probably go shower so I can at least LOOK productive today :)
Smelling: air? haha nothing really
Wishing: it was a little warmer in here, we're a little below ground level so it's cooler than I'm used to.
Hoping: the sun will come out!
Wearing: I bet you can guess, sweats and a hoodie. I need to start writing these later in the day, I promise I have actual cute clothes!
Loving: the view from our living room window, there's a little courtyard with some pretty plants.
Wanting: I could go for some coffee right about now.
Needing: some nude colored tights and a few plain white tees for layering so I can wear all my pretty sundresses to work!
Feeling: still tired from the move...wake up, self!
Clicking: my Bloglovin' feed...I have 299 unread posts!
Linking up with Lauren!
