Currently in April

Reading: I finished a book! This is not a joke. I finished a real book: The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult. Running about 480 pages, this is the first book I’ve completed since graduate school. I spend so much time reading thousands of stories, essays, and poems for Spry that I don’t get to reading much on my own. Plus, every time I’ve started other books in recent months, I get distracted with life. So¬† yeah, reading 480 pages in 24 hours (in only two small sittings) was an awesome moment for me. I’m hoping I can finish 51 more books by the end of the year!
Listening: I’ve been living on Spotify lately as I’m trying to plan all my wedding music.
Excited: that there is less than 2 months until my wedding. I’m also terrified that there is less than two months. There is so much still to do! I’m also excited about a future announcement I will be making on the blog. I’ve accomplished one of my vague monthly goals, and I couldn’t be more excited. If you follow my personal page on Facebook, you’ll understand this reference. I’m also pretty excited that Wolverine made it to the Minor Leagues in youth baseball (he is only 7, and most of the kids on his team are 9).
Watching: Hell on Wheels (on Netflix). I’ll admit–at first I thought the show was stupid when Mr. O started watching it. Now I’m hooked. I’m still watching season 2 of House of Cards and enjoying that one too. In the past month I’ve finished a few movies: Gravity and Wolf of Wall Street. I’ve got Thor and 12 Year Slave ready to go next.
Wearing: On Sunday, I wore my flip flops for the first time in 2014! I’m looking forward to wearing them a lot more often. Also, in regards to what I’m wearing (or will be in two months), I bought my wedding jewelry this past Saturday. I’d love to show you a picture, but I’m wearing my wedding dress in the only pics I have right now.
Wishing: for some resolution on some open items. I have a lot to get done at work in a very short time frame, and I’m also waiting to set some dates in stone. I’m just going to push through enjoy my time with my coworkers in the meantime.
Drinking: Still enjoying my Lindeman’s Framboise. I’m lucky that Mr. O has picked up a bottle for me the past two weeks.Also, I’m pretty intrigued by the Downeast Cider I had at Chomp on Friday night. I loved it and was unsure about it at the same time. Overall, I think I loved it though.
Loving: all the really big changes happening in my life right now. Some are a bit scary, but all are super-awesome and totally exciting.
Loathing: This is a tough one for me. I don’t loath much. In general, I’m pretty happy-go-lucky. The only thing I really loath is snowy weather, but now that it is springtime, I might need to change these categories up a bit.
Admiring: My bridesmaids. They put on such a lovely bridal shower for me. It was the best bridal shower I’ve even been to. Yes, I might be a bit biased, but I still was so impressed and in awe of these lovely ladies. I can’t wait to do a more detailed post to show you all their hard work.

Check out: January, February, March
