Happy 2017! We had an absolute blast celebrating the holiday season but the Type-A side of me (who am I kidding, I have no other side) is happy to be back in a routine. Work has been busy this week so my January edition of “Currently” is a day late, but no dollars short – Here’s what I’ve been up to!
Gathering: With friends and family here and there and everywhere to enjoy the time off. We did New Year’s in West Chester with a bunch of our best friends and had a blast – our compromise was to NOT go out and spend a ridiculous amount of money, but still dress up and drink plenty of champagne ; )
Making: A few different recipes/decorations for my friend Chrissy’s surprise party last week! She turned 28 on the 29th and her boyfriend contacted me about a month prior to start planning. Then he topped the cake with some diamond icing and proposed on Christmas day, so we had a LOT to celebrate! Luckily Minted helped me out with some amazing decorations, including an adorable banner that I was able to personalize with Chrissy’s beautiful face : )
Sipping: Right now, and hopefully all day? Water and plenty of it. My new Corksicle cup literally keeps drinks cold for hours on end – but I try to finish them before they get warm anyway! Over break we enjoyed plenty of mimosas to unwind after late nights playing games and indulging in far too many IPA’s ; ) #hairofthedog
Following: SO many awesome bloggers and Instagrammers! I swear I find someone new every day, usually via comment sections or linkups on blogs I currently read. If you don’t already read Bridget’s musings over at Tales of Me and the Husband – kindly do so now. Her back story is pretty incredible and her kids are unreal adorable, and if that’s not enough incentive she also has a killer closet and mad photography skillz. #fangirl #notashamed
Resolving: To make the most of each and every day while also recognizing when I need to simply relax and enjoy the moment. I oftentimes get way too caught up in a to-do list and making sure I’ve checked off enough to realize that I’m burning the candle at both ends and using up all the metaphorical wax while I’m at it. Cheers to a new year and a fresh start!
