This weeks themes:
making, eating, enjoying, hiding, noticing

I'm currently making a sweet grilled cheese with a strawberry jam, nutella (yum! I could eat the whole jar myself in a week), and mascarpone (sweet Italian cheese. I tried it last night. If you don't add anything to it, it's bland). For lunch, I'm making spaghetti squash and shrimp in a lemon butter sauce. 

I'm currently eating yogurt but I will soon be eating what I made. 

Update: the sandwich was a big mess and not very good. The nutella was the best part, the strawberries weren't so good, and the cheese melted so much that it wasn't even there. The spaghetti squash and shrimp was delicious! Even my boyfriend loved it! 

I'm currently enjoying the spring weather and the peace and quiet at home here. My mom went back to work from being off for Easter, so it's nice to be by myself for the day.

I'm currently hiding nothing.

I'm currently noticing that the trees are budding and I'm gaining weight, which isn't good. I need to lose some pounds instead. But I'm a foodie, I love to eat!

This weeks themes:
clearing, digging, mixing, reading, watching

I'm currently clearing out my boyfriend's laptop. It was running so slow, that I download a virus program, which helped somewhat. Then I decided to uninstall some programs and delete stuff and now I screwed up his internet; meaning there's none! Ok, so I'm not a computer whiz. I know the basics. 

I'm currently digging in the dirt. I want to start gardening and planting flowers, veggies, and fruits. 

I'm currently mixing nothing. I haven't made anything from scratch in awhile. Even though I did help my grandfather and mom make Easter cookies from scratch, I didn't mix the dough.  

I'm currently reading nothing. I buy book after book, but I never seem to sit down and actually read them. 

I'm currently watching the food network and DIY network a lot lately. I love cooking (I'm considering majoring in it) and I love those landscaping shows.

This weeks themes:
dropping, making, wearing, kissing, keeping

I;m currently dropping my phone this week. I dropped it yesterday at the park, I'v dropped it at the mall, I've dropped in my bathroom, etc. I've dropped it so many times, I have a small crack on the screen. I've never dropped a phone so many times.

I'm currently making an Easter/spring wreath with plastic Easter eggs. A DIY post about how I make my wreaths is coming soon. 

I'm currently wearing a new pair of jeans today! I'm going out for an early Easter dinner with my boyfriend and dad's family. 

I'm currently kissing my boyfriend of course! I love kissing him :)

I'm currently keeping a journal of all my thoughts and lists. I've always kept a journal, but never succeeded. Now, I'm trying to write in it everyday. I bring it with me everywhere. You never know when inspiration will hit.

Radiant Orchid

This year's Pantone color is Radiant Orchid. You may have seen it in the Sephora's window, where they have the color available. I absolutely love this color! Purple happens to be my favorite color and I'm so happy that it's color of the year.

If you don't have any purple items in your wardrobe, then here's some inspiration for you. Surprisingly, I don't have a lot of it in my wardrobe. But I do have a lot of purple nail polish.

This weeks themes:
reading, feeling, racing, using, smelling

I'm currently reading my event and wedding planning textbook. As well as some new books I bought, like Mrs. Poe and The House of Memories. 

I'm currently feeling lost. I'm still uncertain about event and wedding planning. I may want to do interior design, but I'm not sure about that either. I want to do something that I love and do something where there's a good job market. I also feel lost about finding a job, finding my niche, getting an apartment, my future, saving up money for my future (I'm having trouble doing that without going broke all the time. I get to a certain amount and then it's gone), etc. I'm just lost about life in general. 

I'm currently racing nothing. 

I'm currently using my laptop to write this post up! I'm also using my event and wedding textbook more (which is a good thing), and the treadmill more. 

I'm currently smelling roasted sunflower seeds. My dad just dry roasted some in a pan.
