Currently I'm...

Every once in awhile I like to do these "currently I'm" posts, mostly because it involves basically zero creativity and brain power, which is apparently what I'm going for 24/7 these days when it comes to blog land. Gosh I suck. I think I've said it 1,383 times but I'll say it for the 1,384th time - I really do want to take this blog back to what it used to be. What was that you ask? Fun! And funny! And had real life moments contained in it! So much so that I would be able to look back a year later and know pretty much everything that was going on in our lives at that point in time. Come next year, I am going to be so screwed if I try to recall what was happening in the year 2017. At least I will be able to remind myself how to wear Converse ;)

In a very small effort to return to everyday life I'm going to bust this currently thing out right now and see where it takes us..let's begin! 

+ Crying about Ben and Lauren. 
yes, we were best friends - no, I don't want to talk about it right now #toomanyemotions 

You guys, not only was I going to be their flower girl in the wedding [the wedding that was never going to happen] I now owe a friend $100 for losing a bet that they would stay together forever. Here's the deal guys, Ben is legit. Lauren likes booty shots on Instagram. And I'm not saying there is anything wrong with booty shots necessarily, I'm just saying I think Ben prefers something a little different. Here's the other problem - I freaking loved Lauren when we met her. She was so real and nice and funny and stinkin' adorable. SO WHERE DID WE GO WRONG? Ben, come home to Indiana where you belong. Ugh, next subject please. 

+ Soaking up the best part of the day, which in my opinion is the morning. Preferably between 6:30-9:30 or so. We can all agree this part of the day is magical right? This may be because of coffee, but I also think because it feels like the world is still quiet and that nobody else is really doing much during this time so it's like a free pass to be as lazy/relaxed as you want to be. At least that's how I look at it. To celebrate this time, I'm sitting outside in a lounge chair drinking that cup of joe, dogs locked up in their playpen next to me and writing this post. It looks a little something like this... 

obsessed with these pants 

+ Nervous that my computer is about to die which means this perfect little situation will have to be taken inside where I can plug this bad boy in and then MY DAY WILL BE RUINED. That's a joke. Kinda. 

+ Thinking that I should probably get my crap together for tonight's pool party/cookout with friends. I have this thing recently where I like to wait until approximately one hour before any event to get prepped for it. Some call this stupidity, I call it ulcer inducing. Good work Erin! 

+ Setting a goal to use my regular camera more this summer. The iPhone has ruined me.

+ Listening to The Chainsmokers. So here's my question - do we think they are actually addicted to smoking?

+ Behind on literally everything in life. Emails, calls to friends, shaving my legs, Stitch Fix returns, you name it, I'm not doing it. At what point do you hit rock bottom and make a change? I've gotta be getting close...

+ Loving these dweebs like crazy. They may be awnry, but they sure are cute. They may also decide to vomit all over me [this happened yesterday and I will forever be traumatized] but they do have a few redeeming qualities, like when they sleep! Gosh I love them so much when they sleep!

+ Can't stop watching Thomas Rhett's IG stories with their new adopted daughter. Maybe this is why I am no longer getting anything done. Between her cuteness and Thomas's voice, I really just can't handle it. What I am trying to say is that I want to be his adopted daughter.

+ Excited about the macaroni salad I am about to go dominate [at 8:20 am]. Gotta get that beach bod ready one way or another ;)

And on that note, I'm outta here...those noodles aren't going to eat themselves! Peace out. 



  1. Love the pants, what size did you go with?!?

  2. I love these kind of posts! Those pups adorable! Good luck getting ready for your party tonight!

  3. Thank you, Erin, for posting with a real and fun personality! XOXO

    Indiana is HOME to me also!

  4. These posts are always my favorite! Hope you have a good day! :)

  5. I love everything about this post- how real you are, how funny, & how honest! I'm also obsessed with Thomas Rhett- he's pretty much a total gem! Glad I'm not the only one who stalks his cute family on the reg!

  6. I have to confess that I went straight to Instagram and started following Thomas Rhett so I can watch his stories all the time!

  7. They might be the cutest dogs ever. I love my peaceful mornings too. But, for the past 2 weeks and probably 2 more weeks they are just a distant memory. Bathroom remodel. I have to stay home a lot because I have a dog that likes to run away. Here's my day: ppl running up and down stairs. Door slams. Bang bang. Drill drill. Repeat. Ugh. I just keep thinking that it will be worth it in the end. If I survive sharing a bathroom with my husband of 25 years. Never had to do that before. Pray for us. Lol.

  8. THIS. This right here is exactly why I started reading your blog years ago. Not gonna lie...a few more outfit this and outfit that posts and I was done. But, you peaked my interest again, just in time. For that I say, thank you and more of THIS, please!

  9. Does it even matter if the chainsmokers smoke as long as they keep putting out songs? Love them! And mornings. And your random thoughts!

  10. I agree with so much in this post!! I remember when blogging was just basically journaling and I LOVE looking back at those old posts and just seeing what I did all day, HA! Now if I look back to a even just a year ago every post is a "how to" or list of some sort. Booooo...

  11. I always spell it awnry vs ornery. AWNRY USERS UNITE! and PS... you do NOT suck! I love your blog. How did the cookout go? Can you share some of your favorite or easy go to recipes for summer gatherings?

  12. ...is it bad that what I took away from this post is that my family and I are not the only ones who pronounce "ornery" as "awnry"?


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 :)
