August Edition of Currently: Netflix, Dark Tower, Porch Life and Instagram

 

Guys, HOW IS IT AUGUST?

I heard someone say that August is like the Sunday of Summer…That felt like the perfect description!  August feels like that month where I need to reflect on the season to come, relax and get ready all at the same time.  I feel like I need to get back to me this month and back to writing more about ME and my life and my fam.  And sharing it here on this blog.

So I decided to revive my Currently series because I miss it!

(This post contains affiliate links)

So without further ado.. I am Currently…..

WATCHING

ALL THINGS NETFLIX.

The way my life is set up, I’m sleeping by 9 pm. I miss all the good shows!!! But since I work from home, I find myself needing to be entertained while I’m home alone.  I’ve binge watched ENTIRE seasons and series. But confession…I still haven’t finished Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder and House of Cards. *hangs head in shame* ….

Any suggestions for new shows on Netflix I might have missed?

 

READING

Or rather RE-Reading the Dark Tower Series from Steven King. You know the Movie comes out THIS Friday? ( with Idris? But I digress…..)

I started reading these books back in High School and never finished the series because Stephen King didn’t finish WRITING the series until a few years ago. Now, I’m catching up before I see the Movie. There are 8 books in the series…at this rate, I might not see the movie until it’s on Netflix. *weeps*

LISTENING

 

Listen, I admit to me, Jay Z fell off the last few years. He was like that older rapper who you looked at with nostalgia. You remembered when he was great, you felt he could STILL be great..but he never quite got there again.

Enter 4:44

Yes, a month later, I’m still bumping it. This is the Jay Z I remember, this is that grown man ish.

 

MAKING

THIS.

Skinny taste healthy grilled bowl

Listen. It was so good and simple and easy and healthy.

I can’t take credit for this recipe. If you want it, head over to the Skinny Taste blog for all the details. 

 

FEELING

Overwhelmed.

You ever KNOW that you have to do things, write lists so that you can do things, then sit and look at said list like WTH?

Yeah, that’s me. I’m feeling that way about back to school ( starts Monday), trying to declutter my life ( because I have finally come to the conclusion that the reason I can never keep up with the laundry is because we have TOO MANY DAMN CLOTHES), lose weight ( BECAUSE I AM FAT) maintain this blog and actually keep up with all the other obligations that I find myself in somehow. SMH.

I know I’ll get it together, But before school starts, I seriously have to get a better system for all of my life. Because otherwise, I will always be behind.

 

LOVING

currently enjoying my porch

My porch. Around my birthday, I was standing on my porch and realized that I had never done anything with that space. We’ve been in this house for four years and I have done nothing but unpack.

I had plans, ALL THE PLANS, but when I do that, I get overwhelmed ( see the section before) and don’t do anything.

So I started small. I bought a fern.

Then I saw some chairs on sale at Lowes….

And a table…

And now I sit out there on summer mornings and enjoy about 30 minutes of quiet time with my coffee.

It’s small. I didn’t spend much money, But I  created a great outdoor space that we can enjoy.

Priceless.

 

PLANNING

A full-out for real Instagram Course.

Guys. It’s something that’s been on my mind since I released my free 5 day Instagram course over two years ago. I love Instagram and since I love it, I’m slightly obsessed and spend hours reading about it testing theories, testing things I hear others are trying and sharing it with my friends.  And it’s because of those friends that I am finally putting together a full on course about Instagram and how to build your Community.

Instagram Better: Tips for Authentic Community Building will go live on Monday, August 28th.  If you want to sign up to hear more about it in the next few weeks and be the first to know when it goes on sale, sign up right here. 

 

That’s it! That’s all I’ve been up to! What are you guys currently up to? I miss you guys!

    LOVE!!! I kept saying does she know me? Are we old friends lol. I work from home too so I get needing things to watch. I’ve seen 2 whole episodes of House of Cards so don’t feel alone. I’m still listening to Jay Z. That album is an instant classic. Also trying to shed 10lbs. I would love the IG information. I’m still fairly new to blogging so it would be very helpful. *finds you on IG* Thanks for your list and listening to yourself to start writing again.

    Girl blasphemy on your Jay Z thoughts. HE WILL ALWAYS BE GREAT (Stan life) lol! Yes the things e have to balance as a mom, eat right, keep home in tact, back to school (which really translates into back to homework for me lol) keep your blog popping–it’s never ending!!! My dvr stays full so I need to get back to Netflix. In fact I canceled Hulu for the summer because I realized I wasn’t even watching it!

    I loved this post 🙂 I found myself nodding and smiling along with every item on the list. I too work from home and I homeschool so Netflix is my friend in the afternoons when the kids work is done and I’m trying to work through superficial items on my task list. I’ve fallen in love with Master of None and Dear White People on Netflix as well as The Crown and Bloodline.

    You’ve got a new subscriber here 😀

    Literally laughed out loud at your Jay Z comments. lol He fell off long ago. The salad you made looks DELISH and what I love the most is how easy it looks. Like you, I also need to address my patio. I do however love to just sit with coffee and sometimes that’s enough 🙂

    August is definitely the Sunday of summer but I’m gonna hack it this year. Lol. Instead of “virtually” taking the month off I’m setting the stage for a busy fall season. My focus for this month is Intention + order. I’ll still squeeze some time in but it’s with focus. Welcome back!

    I never thought to think of August as being the Sunday of summer. Whoever thought of that is a genius. I can’t even hate August because it is my birthday month, but I do remember being a kid and dreading it because I knew the first day of school would follow. Aannd I want that salad.

    Your patio is gorgeous! I miss the balcony I had in Houston. I was on the 21st floor but my balcony was the width of my apartment. I spent a lot of time outside on it looking at the lights during the evening.
