And just like that, we are nearly halfway through 2017.
I know that I sound like a broken record here, but I really can’t believe how quickly this year is flying by. Nevertheless, another month in the books means that it’s time to do some “Currents”!
First and foremost, thank you guys so much for all the well wishes yesterday. I am feeling much better after being accidentally glutened. I was still a bit sluggish yesterday and had some cramping off and on, but nothing like how it was initially. Phew – just so glad that crap is over with!
This should come as no surprise to you guys, especially given how many strawberry recipes I’ve posted this month! That being said, May is National Strawberry Month, so I personally feel like I should get a bit of a pass 😉
But in all seriousness, I’ve eaten far too many strawberries this past month. Although come to think of it, not even one of those berries were covered in chocolate. I think I might need to rectify that…
So, remember when I said that I could literally turn any meal into a taco? Well, I think I started to take myself a bit too literal with. I’ve eaten so many gosh darn tacos this month – and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon!
Mainstay – Become Who You Are
This song was one I had on repeat back when I was in high school and I just rediscovered it when I was thumbing through the music in my Itunes library. It has now become one of those songs that I listen to daily.
I keep on chasing the wrong things and coming up empty
This isn’t who I’m supposed to be
I keep on learning the hard way from every mistake
And I’m finding each time that you fall, you’re just becoming who you are
Little Brother graduates from highschool tomorrow and while I am incredibly happy for him to enter into that next phase of life, a huge part of me is also incredibly sad.
It took me far too long to get here guys [and by here, I mean NorCal]. I wasted so much time in LA – away from Little Bro and Little Sissy – and now Brother is graduating and I freaking missed all of it.
I’m trying to focus on the positives – I was able to be here for his senior year, got to watch him play football and was here as he signed his college commitment letter. But then I think back at all the things that I missed and I just get so dang sad.
I know that I can’t change it – the time has come and gone and there is no getting it back – but I still can’t help but be upset about all the lost time between us. And while it’s no conciliation in regards to Little Bro, I do at least have a lot longer with Little Sissy. I guess I can just only hope that the small amount of time I’ve had with Little Bro has been as special to him as it has been for me.
My love for all things strawberries is slowly getting replaced by a cherry obsession. Just warning you now, this may result in an abundance of cherry recipes coming your way soon. I haven’t jumped into any recipes yet, but I can feel the itch starting in the back of my brain…
Our Virginia Vacation
I know I acted like a big baby in regards to the travel part of the trip [because I hate flying!], but I really am glad that Ninja and I got to take some time to visit his family in Virginia. Not only was it great to see them but it was also nice for Ninja and I to get away from our everyday lives for a bit.
I also got to see some really neat stuff and visit some historical places which, for a history nerd like me, was freaking awesome. I actually stood in front of a house that Abraham Lincoln once slept in. How cool is that?!
So apparently every pair of black leggings that I own is see through. Yeah – not good.
I discovered this by accident when I was in the gym bathroom, and then was of course mortified and embarrassed beyond belief. Thankfully they are only see through when I bend over, however when you think of all the bending I do [squats, deadlifts, burpees, etc] that means that my underwear is basically constantly on display. Yikes.
If anyone has any recommendation for me, I would really appreciate it!
And that’s it for my currents today! I know that I am still so far behind in my commenting – I’m so, so sorry about that! Getting glutened kind of tossed everything off kilter for me, however I’m trying to catch up today 🙂
Thanks to Amanda for letting me Think Out Loud today!
What is your current:
