Currently I'm...


Currently I’m…

Drinking: Diet Dr Pepper, Coffee, and Water. In that order. One sip, rotate. Another sip, rotate. Sip, rotate, sip, rotate. You get the point. Variety is the spice of life.

Wearing: A shirt. With a hole in the side. One of these days I'll realize that once an item has a hole, tear, or rip..I should probably retire said item. But until then I will wear the heck out of it and have people say "Uhh..there is a hole in that" and act surprised that "oh my gosh--there is a hole!" Except I don't act surprised at all. I just say "Oh I know. I tried coloring my body with a permanent marker the color of the shirt but it didn't disguise it well enough." And that my friends is a true story. Shame. I'm still working on getting some. 

Losing Sleep Over: My speech that I will be giving at Elevate Conference next month. NEXT MONTH. And I haven’t even wrote down the first tiny little tid bit. I’m wondering if I pass out within the first 30 seconds it will give me an excuse to not have to stand up there for 30-45 minutes? Just kidding. I want to stand up there and talk. I think. Or at least I am reciting those words over and over and over and over again. One of these days I’ll believe it! Ps. If you are there, I am speaking barefoot. I have to. It’s just this thing I have where shoes don’t stay on my feet.  I hope this is cool with you as it is mandatory with me.

Refusing To: Pack. I leave Wednesday morning for Arizona. This means I will probably pack Wednesday morning. Why is this one task so excruciating?

Eating: Chips and guac. One would think that I would be sitting here snacking on carrots or whatever you birds eat, but no. I prefer to be an extra 10 pounds in my bathing suit thank you very much.

Loving: These chips and guac. I mean thank you Jesus for such wonderful creations. Amen?

Excited About: Shipping out the first items for the Love, Yellow orders! Cuteness abounds. 

Thankful For: Love. The romantic kind, the friend kind, the “I really don’t like you but I am going to show you love anyhow” kind. Without it, we have nothing.

Wishing: I was hanging out in the middle of a wine superstore right now. That or sleeping in a hammock. Whichever. 


Admiring: This Quote. 


Cheers to being authentic. 
Saying Good-Bye To: This blog post. Peace out.

  13. seriously do avacados have to be in season right before swimsuit season? it's an ironic kind of torture. but only if you care about swimsuit season, which right now I don't. I really like that quote by the way. it's not where you take things from but where you take things to. well said.

  15. Adorable, Erin! No doubt that your Elevate talk will go swimmingly. I mean, just sneak a little wine first, right? Ummm...yeah. ;)

  16. There is something about getting a hole in a shirt that makes it that much harder to throw away..why? I have no idea, but the same people always point the same hole I continue to flaunt like it's not there. And now I will join you in a wine superstore day dream. :)

  17. so excited about your Love Yellow idea!

  18. A visit to a wine superstore would be so fantastic wouldn't it?

  19. Haha, I do the same thing with my shirts with holes and my husband scolds me for it every time. I just can't justify throwing it out if it's only a little hole.
    And where is there a wine superstore? I could get lost in there for hours for sure :)

  34. A wine super store sounds dangerous. It's a good thing I don't have a car.

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
