currently: the year is going by too quickly edition

You know how when you're reading blogs and everyone is like Oh em gee. Time goes so fast?! How is it already May?! I just drank some sparking cider this past New Year's Eve like last week! Giggle giggle laugh laugh and all that.

Well I'm here saying the exact same things today. Because seriously, it's May? May 2016? Are you sure? Because I know everyone else is saying this, but I literally was just cheers-ing  (real wine, not sparkling cider crap though...) the beginning of 2016 last week. I swear. Not like everyone else means it when they swear something. My swearing it is a little different/more true. 

Anyways, the point is that January 2016 was not last week. It was 5 months ago. And it is for reals May. And let's move on. 

Currently I am...
celebrating //
The fact that it is May in hell Houston, and it's been so crisp and cool the past few days. Like you don't feel like you want to peel off your skin. Everybody stop whatever you're doing and knock on wood, please and thank you. I got to Houston in mid-May of last year, and I distinctly remember sweating off my you-know-what anytime I even thought about going outside. The past few days when I've walked the dog I've had goosebumps on my you-know-what (jk, on my arms), and I can't believe it. Dear Houston, please keep these temps for at least another week or even half a week.

reading //
Apparently one of the fifty million times I've been on a plane recently I started reading We Were Liars through the plane's free wifi. I got so into it and put a post-it note reminder on my brain to download it and finish it when I got home.

spoiler alert: I never did. And that was two or three months ago. And now that I'm talking about it I remember how badly I want to know what happened. I was reading reviews of the book, and the majority of the reviews were people saying things like, I hate books like this because I'm so smart and can always guess the mystery in any kind of book so I knew what was going to happen the entire time I was reading it. Did I mention I have a big, smart brain?

Well, I have a small, not-smart brain, and I can never guess the outcomes of books so Imma read it and finish it, dangit!

pondering // 
If my dog loves getting five millions and fifteen kisses from me a day or if he hates it? OH WELL, WHO CARES. Good thing dogs can't talk.

sipping //
I never ever ever ever liked coffee. Add in a few more evers plus a few more. But now that I've discovered lattes/iced lattes/iced caramel lattes, and pumping the coffee full of milk and sugary things I am ALL about coffee.

So much that I wish I was sipping a sugary/milky/iced latte right about now. My body also wishes I was sipping one and filling myself with sugar right now. Because who says sugar isn't good for you? And why? Are we sure?...

going //
I'm headed to my college roommate's bachelorette/shower weekend later this month, and I. Cannot. Wait. Is it too early to start talking about how I have nothing to wear that weekend/getting all over Pinterest/not shutting up about the fact that I don't know what to wear that weekend? No? I'm allowed to be basic and do all these things now even though its four weeks away? Cool. Because GUYS, I have absolutely nothing to wear to this shindig. Wink.

What are you up to currently? Filling your body with sugary goodness?

COFFEE IS SO GOOD! Like Crazy, addicting good. Pretty soon you will laugh at the amount of coffee you consume in one day. I am on cup number two and it's only 9:30! Welcome to the coffee club where we are all hyped up on caffeine and sugary joy!

Ruth said...

EEEEEK! I'm SO excited. Can't wait for shenanigans with you!

Erin LFF said...

I hope Houston gives you goosebumps just a little bit longer! ;) I can't imagine how hot it gets once the middle of summer hits! I don't drink regular coffee either- but if it's some frozen concoction with sugar and syrup and fun stuff- I'm in!

I read We Were Liars and for the life of me can't remember if I figured the twist out or not. I'm thinking not? Actually, I'm trying to remember what the twist even is...I think I know, but I'm not sure if my small not-smart brain is remembering it right.

YES TO SUGAR COFFEE. So good. Especially iced. And especially when made by someone who isn't you who charges you like $5 for it.

The weather has been absolutely glorious lately, and I've been loving it too! I'll take a mild winter if it means that we don't have humid Hades just yet! And you have to go back and finish We Were Liars! It's such a good book, and I'm sure that nobody knew exactly how the story ended! That would be impossible!

I've never been the coffee drinker. And to this day I can't drink lattes. Definitely not your average white girl over here! lol

The Siberian American said...

I definitely prefer only sweet coffee! I'm a I like a little coffee with my creamer kind of girl. ;)

Kayla MKOY said...

Coffee with sugar + cream + syrup + whipped cream is THE BOMB DOT COM... but you couldn't pay me to drink it black. Boo!! ;) I can't imagine how hot it gets in TX in the summer. Sheesh!

Anne said...

Sugar makes everything better. Enjoy that nice weather and end of the book :)

Carly Messmer said...

Lattes are a slippery slope! I started with lattes and frapaccinos and now I can drink my coffee black! Gateway coffee!

Susannah said...

I'm glad you're starting to come over to the coffee side. ;-)

Oh my goodness! Welcome to the world of lattes. Try yourself a lavender latte one day. Or a honey latte. Soooo yummy and not too sweet. Now I really want some coffee. Thanks for linking up, friend!!!
