Currently - Maybe I Can Blog Today

Friday, April 7, 2017

TGIF!!! I for one could not be any happier to be able to say that! Hope you all have an awesome Friday! #TGIF #longweek:

Or maybe not I don't know. We'll see if I can make it to the end of this and hit publish. Gah... where are the days going? Work is killing me right now. On top of a big and busy project that is my main focus, my office moved and a bridge collapsed on I-85 in Atlanta (in case you live under a bridge and ya hadn't heard... p.s. don't smoke crack under there if you do). Since I work for a company that works for GDOT that has been a bit of a big effing deal around here. It's getting fixed and hopefully soon because lengthy commutes and horrendous traffic are already a part of life here and they just got a whole lot worse.

In other news I missed my most favorite link up this week, Currently with Anne and Jess so I am doing it today. Better late than never I say.  Here we go...


I am almost 100% completely done painting my office. It just needs a light second coat and then it is done and the really fun stuff starts. And by that I mean looking for awesome stuff to fill it with at Homegoods. I've been posting pics and videos to my Insta story so I hope you have caught a peek or two but I am loving it. The color is just so warm and pretty. I am feeling very accomplished since it's the first room I have painted in oh, I don't know 10 years maybe. My daughter has helped some but I really feel just getting everything out of here is a huge accomplishment for me on an emotional level if that makes sense. It was a horde of crap. The bad side is it is all in my living room and dining room waiting for me to Marie Kondo but I am working on it. The biggest joy is that I was able to give away the most horrendously huge and heavy old desk to some random off a FB garage sale page and I didn't have to move it or pay to dispose of it. #byefelicia


Blah. I know it's spring and spring break and all that jazz but I am not feeling it. The air is thick with pollen and I am stuck here working while everyone else is at the beach or some other exotic location. I hate them all. Not really but kinda sorta. It's my own fault, I need to just book something and go already.


Motivation and to get my ass moving so I signed up for this for one month to try...TMAC Fitness. Whole30 was offering a promo deal for a month for free. This guy has developed a whole bunch of 20 minute HIIT workouts  and built a subscription website out of it. It's $14.95 a month so I figured what the heck, that's two glasses of wine out or a bottle at home. I can swing it and I think I have 20 minutes a day, hell I spend that much time thinking about working out every day and looking at Fitspo accounts on IG. Check it out and enter code WHOLE30 for a free month.


Keeping my big mouth shut. I have gotten into a habit of being a little too gossipy/chatty/oversharing and I do not feel very good about it. I think this comes from not having another adult in my home or a partner in life. Sometimes I just tell the wrong people too much and it comes back to bite me in the ass. First stop on my upcoming trip needs to be in Shuttytown.


Cakes and floral tattoo elements. I have an appointment next week with my artist in town from Denver to add a few details to my shoulder piece that he did a few years back before he ditched me for the mile high city. Maybe some leaves, branches, berries... idk.

And why do I always feel like Easter calls for a cake like this one?

This To Die For Carrot Cake receives rave reviews for it's unbelievable moistness and flavor! Truly the BEST CARROT CAKE you'll ever try! So easy to make and as an added bonus, there's no oil or butter! I know this cake will quickly become a family favorite! // Mom On Timeout

So that's about it for today. I hope you all have a fab weekend!


  1. I love that tattoo. I can't wait to see what you add to yours. The bug has bitten me bad. I used to get one a year, & there was even a year when I didn't get one at all, but I got one in October, another last month, & now I want another little one on my pinky. Have a great weekend! Hope the blah feeling goes away!

  2. Can't wait to see the updated room in your home! I hope you do a post about it!

  3. Oh my goodness that cake!!! I need it in my mouth right now! I saw the mess with 85. Yikes. Used to drive that everyday back in the day. What a mess! I can't even imagine. I saw the paint color on your wall!!! So pretty! I'm still clearing out my office area too, so I feel ya.

  4. That's such a good point - for how much time a person can easily while away looking at workout inspiration, you can easily get in a quick workout. I could tell myself the same about browsing cooking or kid activity inspiration... And yes, please, cakes!

  5. I know what you mean about that "blah" feeling. Also, have you watched that show on TLC with that lady named Pooh who goes around helping people? She lives in the Atlanta area, and she's pretty funny. I like these emoticons - my students are obsessed with them!

  6. I can't wait to see the office! My husband is gonna be working from home 3 days a week after our move so I get to put an office together.

  7. This just reminded me that I want to paint my master bedroom. I'll be looking forward to how your office came out! A coat of paint goes so far!!

  8. Girl - that 85 disaster is a hot mess! Yay for you on getting the office almost done - accomplishing something like that makes me feel so good! I need some fitness motivation for damn sure - the only thing I got right now is walking the dog. Womp. Womp. $14.95 sounds reasonable though - if I actually do it! Happy Easter! Enjoy the weekend!
