linking up with jenna and anne today for a "currently" post!

cooking: i cooked up a storm this past weekend. my boyfriend was in colorado for several days, and i thought it would be nice to stock him up with a few meals upon his return. i made sesame garlic pork loin, classic potato salad, pasta salad, and shortbread chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies. he was not the only one who benefitted from this cooking frenzy.

watching: castle season four on netflix. i have no idea who even watches this show, and i am really behind in the series so i don't think i will ruin anything if i say THEY FINALLY KISSED. that's all.

planning: weekend trips. i don't have a big vacation on the horizon, so i am looking forward to planning some short weekend trips to the beach, my hometown, charleston, charlotte, etc. weekend trips are sometimes my favorite trips because the planning/travel time is usually pretty minimal and you can really focus on enjoying your time there.

reading: still working my way through the ghost at the table and just started evolving in monkey town. good reads so far! and since we're on the topic, i mentioned in this post my goal to read a minimum of one book a month this year. i am happy to report i am still on track! we're in june and halfway there. don't fail me now, good intentions.

wearing: this new maxi dress. it has pockets for my necessary items. lip gloss and chocolate. i am the happiest girl on the block.

head on over to the link-up to see what everyone else is "currently" up to!

  2. I would LOVE the recipe for sesame garlic pork loin! Sounds yummy! It's so fun to plan weekend trips. I can't wait to hear more about your plans. Charleston is on my list of places to travel this year. I've got to do it! It's only 5 hours for me. How far is it for you?

    Gotta love dresses with pockets! Especially if they're comfy maxi dresses!

  6. Ok, so it's pretty obvious that I need to drive down to your house so that I can try some of that delicious food that you cooked- it sounds amazing! Recipes please! Also, about half of the people in my household are obsessed with Castle so girl, you are not alone! Finally, I am loving that maxi dress! I'm on the hunt for a few new maxi dresses to wear this summer. I haven't looked at Target yet so that's next on my list!
