Today I'm jumping in on the "Currently" linkup with Anne.  So here's what I'm currently:

Writing:  pretty much just blog posts.

Anticipating: October is birthday month for both me and John, and this is a big year for me as I will hit the big 3-0.

Missing: family that lives far away!  After spending the weekend with my parents, sister and nieces, I just wish I could see them more often.  And of course, I wish I had been able to see my other siblings and nieces/nephews.  (And I wish there was a word to describe all of my siblings' children, without having to say "nieces and nephews" all the time).    

Wearing:  All my summery clothes that will be unwearable in a month or so.  I'm in the end of summer panic where I want to wear shorts, sandals and sleeveless things as much as possible!  

Craving:  A relaxing vacation, preferably to the beach.  I've traveled quite a bit over the last few months, but it's all been pretty busy travel.  I'm ready for another lazy vacation!

Necklace: Old Navy (similar)
Dress: Banana Republic outlet
Sandals: Target (similar)


  1. I feel ya on missing your family! I have been missing mine lots lately...I wish Michigan were just a little bit closer! And I love this dress. Stripes are always amazing!

  2. I am so thankful my family isn't that far away! I've been wearing my summer clothes like crazy too. It's September now so all bets are off about how much longer warmer weather is sticking around! I love this dress on you! The colors and stripes are amazing!

  3. Hooray for birthday month! The big 3-0 is an excellent excuse to do extra celebrating too, take it from me :)

  4. Love your dress. I know how missing family fell. I just actually talk to my mother in law for the first time in month today.

  5. I feel like there should be a better word than nieces and nephews too! We should invent one.

  6. This dress is so cute! I love all the colors!
    I am in a mad rush to wear all my summer clothes these days too. Must wear ALL the shorts!

  7. I am also feeling the pressure to wear my most summer-y of clothes. .. even though we'll still have 70+ weather for at least the next 10 days. Also, have you considered just calling them your siblings' kids? Or maybe your neice-phews ?

  8. This dress is so beautiful, and it looks lovely on you! I can always tell that you love this dress because your face lights up when you're in it! I really like the format of this "currently" post - lots shorter than the one I did a couple weeks ago, haha. I'll have to link up next time!! :) And hooray for an upcoming birthday! I hope you have big plans to ring in 30! :)

  9. That dress is amazing! I love it. I'm sure y'all are really wanting October to get here! It sounds like it'll be a fun, celebratory month!
