currently {july edition}

before i begin my post for today, i wanted to thank you all- from the bottom of my heart- for all the baby love. wow. we are both so grateful for all of the support, prayers, thoughts, and endless love. your comments, emails, texts, and care packages {so sweet} have meant so, so much to us. thank you. we are both excited and so happy to experience this special blessing. i am planning on sharing how we spilled the pregnancy beans and other baby inspirations with you this week. sharing this with you all is so special and i couldn't ask for better readers, a more supportive family, and close friends.  

CRAVING | this prompt is perfect this month for the pregnant lady!! watermelon and donuts are at the top of my list! i am limiting my donut intake ... but not the watermelon! there is a bowl in front of me right now. can you overdose on watermelon?! 
GRILLING | we love to grill out in the summer and enjoy dinner on our back patio. i have been pinning some fun corn recipes lately and am excited to try some news ones... i will post about what we love most {i saw one that included jalapenos and wrapping the cob in bacon- you are welcome in advance!} what do you love to grill lately? 
LISTENING | it's no secret that i love, love pandora... it's on all.day.long in this house {and at school when i am teaching}. lately, i am loving kate walsh and the beatles! both are just so good. what is your favorite station(s)?
PLANNING | anything and everything baby! lots of baby nursery inspirations- hello, cuteness! in addition, we are traveling back to my hometown in ohio this week and i literally can't even wait. i used to travel home often when i first moved to north carolina and in the past fews years those visits have dwindled significantly. it's a special place in my heart... so different than my home in charlotte. i love them both for different reasons... but sometimes i get homesick and that has been the case for the past few weeks. i think my soul needs some midwestern love more than anything! give me some country music, sunsets, cowboy boots, laughter {usually until my stomach hurts}, and lots of game playing - it's simple, fun, and always a good time. people are kind and friendly ~ i can't wait to see everyone! 
DECORATING | yesterday we rearranged our home a bit {i love to do this often... it's so refreshing!} we decided to start to clear out baby monaco's future nursery! yay! {which is currently an office} and added an office area to our living room area downstairs. so in love. i think it turned out well and hope to share a few photos of the new space soon! 
you all know i adore twine & twig 
{everything about all of it!}
how cute are these clutches they now make?
go check them out... adorable for summer!
... 
 what are you currently craving, grilling, listening, planning, and decorating?
   linking up with jenna and anne

  1. I love the Beatles..why have I never thought of listening to their Pandora station? I've been listening more to Spotify lately but I think that's about to change :) I hope that you can't OD on watermelon because I might be in trouble..it's the absolute best summer food! Enjoy!
