Currently.

I was over at Sometimes Sweet today and was loving Danielle's "Currently" post, so here I am doing my own.  :)

(I haven't gotten to wear this dress yet, but isn't it LOVELY??)

Obsessing over:  Moving!  Johnny and I have set a date(ish) for moving and I can't stop thinking about it!  What kind of place will we find?  Big windows and hardwood floors are a must.  I've also started collecting things for our new home.  It's going to be wonderrrrrful (you know, after the whole MOVING thing is over).  :)  Oh, and before I get a bunch of questions, I'm talking about moving houses and not states.  <3

Working on:   Slowing down a little bit.  I have not been very successful yet, but hey... I WAS catching up on some blogs I love this morning, so that's a step.  My life has gotten a little TOO busy lately, and I need to do a better job of stopping to smell the roses. 

Thinking about:  Adding to my bird tattoo.  I actually have it all planned out, I'm just sitting on it for a while.  It's something I do to make sure I love the idea and don't just like it because it's fresh and new.  :)

Anticipating:  This pretty dress I just bought from Vanessa (aka the Velvet Bird).  I cannot wait to get it!!  (oh, and hello, cutest model ever)
Listening to:  A Simon and Garfunkel record we just thrifted for a buck!  It is in crazy good condition.

Eating:  Fruit!  Fruit, fruit, fruit.

Wishing:  For an ocean-y vacation.  I love living in the Midwest-- everyone is awesomely nice and the thrifting is great, but man, there is something so magical about the ocean.  I want to go to there... and then come back home.  ;)

In other news, my incredibly sweet friend Sandi just released a collection of handmade cameos that she has named the "Divine 9".  I don't know how I got to be in such great company, but I am tickled pink about it.  If you have a chance, please stop by and give her some love about her new project-- she is seriously the sweetest person you could know.
Do you recognize any of YOUR favorite bloggers?

In other, OTHER news... Welcome to Instagram, Android users!  I know a lot of iPhone people were being kinda silly about it yesterday, but I am just happy to have a whole new crop of people to follow!  I'm probably guilty of being an over-user of Instagram... especially with the family photos.  I just love it AND them.  ;)  If you would like to find me, my username is skunkboycreatures.

Okay, happy Wednesday, friends!  xoxo katie

  16. Yeah another 'Currently' post!
    Loved the one on Sometimes Sweet and put it on my 'To blog' list immediately. It's so cool to see it here as well. I think it's the perfect way to tell people something about your daily life.

    Love the dress you just bought and can't wait for its first appearance. And since I can use Instragram, I'm a happy follower there as well. I adore your little girls :)

    Have a great day!

  18. I'm so happy to know Instagram is on Android now! I still have a "dumb phone" but my 2 year contract is up next month and I can upgrade. I've been trying to decide if I will get an iPhone or not. I want to join in the Instagram-ing, but I'm also a bit frugal for it! Two more things: I believe that I love that big top dress more than I ought to, because it just made my day! And the cameo? Too cool.

  20. Thanks for the Instagram welcome! iPhone users were being silly yesterday. It's nice to have someone actually excited for Android users after waiting so long for Instagram, rather than making us feel like losers. ;-)

  23. I'm so excited you ordered the three ring dress! I was dying over it as she was making it, I'm so spoiled getting to see her & have sneak peeks at the things she's working on ;) I am hoping the veldt dress will make it my way for my birthday (ps one of your creations is on my birthday wishlist too!)
