Currently: March 2015

I have been wanting to do one of these currently posts for a while, and I thought today would be a good time to do it. I have some new readers (hi everyone!), and honestly, my brain is mush with Match Day coming up, so I thought it would be fun for y’all to get to know me a little better.

Friday can’t come soon enough. I have been in a mood to plan lately, so I can’t wait to know where we’re headed.

Chris and I made a lemon shrimp pasta with vodka sauce tonight. It is one of our favorite go-to meals—easy to make and so delicious!

Excited and nervous. Nervous and excited. Multiply that by about a thousand, and that’s me right now.

I just finished Hausfrau, and it was so sad and draining. It feels like all the books I’ve read recently are sad, so if you have any happy book suggestions, send them my way!

The first play-in game for March Madness. I love college basketball, and March Madness is one of my favorite times of the year. Sic ‘em Bears!

All things spring! I have been shopping for dresses for our California trip and am obsessing over all the pretty spring colors.

Thankful for: 
My sweet husband! I am so proud of how hard he has worked in medical school and can’t wait to see him fulfill his dream of becoming a doctor!

For our number one choice on Friday! Only two more days to go!


  1. I'm loving all things spring too, lady! So ready for winter to be over and the bright beautiful colors of spring time.

  2. oh no, sad book? that sucks. I just read another review that they liked it - you don't recommend?
    hmm happy book, happy book. someday someday maybe wasn't what i would call 'happy' but it wasn't sad either. it was chick lit-y. the martian wasn't sad - if you don't think it's your kind of book, believe me, neither did i, but i loved it. i went through my goodreads and you'd read everything else i've read recently hahaha.
    friday!!! so soon!! do you at least find out super early??!

  3. Oh my gosh hurry up Friday!!!!! SO excited I can't stand it!

  4. I'm so excited for you both, it's almost here! One of my good friends gets matched on Friday as well & she can't sit still waiting. I can't imagine how you guys feel. Ekke! :D

    Also that pasta sounds dream worthy.

  5. SO CLOSE! I am seriously so excited for you! I can't wait to hear all about it!

  6. The meal you are making for dinner tonight sounds amazing!!! Crossing my fingers for you! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  7. Ahhhh so close. I'm ready for Friday, too but only because it will be the weekend. I don't have anything crazy exciting/nerve-wracking I'm finding out. When do you find out on Friday? Do you get to go in that morning or have to wait all day? Is it like a ceremony or you just open a letter? Ok, sorry for a million questions. You should totally share your recipe you made.

  8. Oh that shrimp dish sounds awesome! Would you share the recipe? I'm always looking for new dinner ideas.

    Good luck on Friday!

    1. I have never written the recipe down because we use random ingredients every time, but I am taking photos and putting a recipe together since there is interest!

      Thank you so much for the Match Day support! :)

  9. Aaaahhh! The waiting game is the worst! I can't wait to find out where you're going, either!! YAY!

  10. I love these kinds of posts, it's nice to get a little snippet into people's lives :)

    Lemon shrimp pasta sounds really tasty, I've never put together my own shrimp recipe so this might be something to try in the future.
