Today I could share the awesome video of the first woman to make it through the American Ninja Warrior course. Or I could share an inspiring article about what happens when a mother gives her daughter HER last name. Or even how everyone is starting to agree with my favorite John Snow GoT theory... They're all really awesome things. But what's making me the most happy? Weird Al and his Beyoncé-esque rollout of music videos for his new album. LOVE.

:: Taking Stock ::

I recently stumbled upon Pip's blog Meet Me At Mikes and have quickly fallen in love with her Taking Stock series, (similar to the Currently series over at Sometimes Sweet) so I decided to give it a try. Here goes...


:: Watching :: ThePeople’s Couch.  I didn’t understand the point of watching people watch tv at first…but it’s hilarious.  I want to be on this show.

:: Reading :: I just finished Longbourn by Jo Baker and am starting The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt .

:: Playing :: Stump.  It’s a game involving a hammer, nails, a tree stump, and all of your male friends.  It’s as dangerous as it sounds.  And hilarious.

:: Listening :: To the new First Aid Kit album, Stay Gold. 

:: Bookmarking :: Farm blogs. I’m super interested and involved in the urban farming movement and I can’t get enough of reading these blogs.

:: Crafting :: Felt song lyric banners.  I just made this one for a little fun in my bedroom.

:: Cooking :: Fajitas, it’s my favorite summer meal .

:: Drinking :: The newish beer at a local restaurant Farmers Ale.  Someone told me it tastes like a barn, in a good way, and I kinda love that description.

:: Loving :: Summer nights on patios while listening to good friends play the guitar. 

:: Smelling :: Fresh cut grass & lake water. My faves.

:: Wearing :: Rompers. I can’t stop buying them, the wackier the better.

:: Wanting :: More of these dang Game of Thrones blindboxes. They’re gracing my desk at work and now I’m totally addicted to collecting them.

:: Wishing :: For a longer weekend!

:: Pondering :: Where to go for my 30th birthday.  Because I am definitely not spending it in cold Missouri in January.

:: Needing :: A cat to kill the mouse that won’t leave my house.  Or a person who isn’t afraid of picking up a mousetrap.  Whichever.

:: Feeling :: Content
