Monday, November 30


I've stayed away from "Currently" posts this summer and fall, because mostly they would read "playing a bunch of shows and packing/unpacking boxes".  We're finally in a place where I find myself setting new goals for the coming months.  Like, my brain is ready to let me be a person again.

**Browsing:  Home goods.  Surprised?  I didn't think so.  I mostly haven't ever treated myself to new pieces of furniture, just because thrifting is so much more affordable.  Well, I bought the bed frame of my dreams and a beautiful, classic couch over the past couple of weeks, and I absolutely can't wait for them to arrive!

**Creating:  I just finished up this advent village for ABM, and right now I'm working on a post about curtains, and I've been enjoying dreaming up Christmas crafts for our home.  I'm in the process of cutting a million little felt leaves to spice up our banister garland.  I'll share when it's finished!

**Traveling:  Johnny and I are taking a trip this week for some Christmas shopping and down-time and sleeping in fancy hotel beds and eating all the delicious things.  It's going to be so good.

**Listening:  I've been listening to quite a variety of music lately, but I just picked up a new Dolly Parton record while out thrifting, and I can't stop listening to this song.  It's in my "Pep in Your Step" playlist and it does just that!

**Planning:  I'm in the middle of ironing out all of the details for our band's NYE show.  We're teaming up with Springfield's late night talk show, The Mystery Hour, and it's going to be insanely fun.  (They just won an Emmy!  Woo!!)  Plus, I love any excuse to shop for glitzy decorations and party dresses.

Well, there's a little of what we've been up to.  Happy Monday, friends!

  2. What a super post. My roomie Jes and I just moved and it's really a lot but new beginnings sure feel good. Don't they? Once we got semi settled in I was able to start painting again and it saved my sanity. I loved the advent village you made and am exited to see what other things come to pass in your new home!

    1. Yes! My goal is to just get a few spaces clear so that my mind can relax a little. Congrats on your move!

    2. I'm the worst at seeing these replies!! Thanks for the congratulations. I am super loving Christmas here. I made some Breakfast at Tiffany's ornaments the other day and they made me think of you. :)
