This week’s Currently coming at ya a little later than I would’ve hoped…but better late than never, right?? If you’re new to the blog, you can check out my first post in this series here. 🙂

Happy Weekend, folks!

{Reading // Bossypants by Tina Fey}

I’ve always loved Tina Fey, she was a favorite of all my girlfriends on SNL, as I’m sure she was for a lot of people. All about female empowerment, laughing at yourself, and being real – my kind of lady. I remember this as the first female comedian’s book to really take the market by storm, and I loved Amy Poehler’s Yes Please, so I knew I was overdue in checking Tina’s out.

The part two excitement to this is that Bossypants is the very first book I’m reading on my Kindle Fire, a Valentine’s treat from Eric! Anyone who knows me, knows that I was anti-Kindle for a long time. Not regarding the product in general – I thought it was such a great idea – but I just love the feeling of a real book in my hands and seeing progress with the thickness of the pages.

It was after books were getting bent up in my work tote, and hard to read when having to stand on my commute, I figured I should give it a go. Still adjusting and won’t be giving up physical books completely, but loving my Kindle so far!


{Eating // Brunch…at work?}

What is this? I am eating brunch on a weekday? At my office? Score.

We’re fortunate to have Bagel Friday at work, which is major fuel to get to the weekend. This week though, major bonus. Contestant from NBC’s The Voice and local Chicagoan, Mark Hood, stopped by to perform at a special Gospel Brunch. There were waffles, chicken, eggs, and bagels galore, so I was a happy camper. What a nice treat after a busy week.

{Planning// Austin Trip}

In just two short weeks, Eric and I will be headed back for a jam packed weekend! It’ll be so wonderful to see family and friends, but also feel really good to knock out some more things on our list of wedding to-dos.

We’ll finally be taking our engagement photos – very excited! Also, kind of nervous…haha am I cool and not awkward enough for this? Our photographers for this shoot, and our wedding, will be the lovely Kelsey and Talon of Feather & Twine. This adorable duo also got engaged in Paris (Is this meant to be or what??), and married just last fall. We are so, so looking forward to meeting them in person. If you haven’t checked them out before, you can join us in being in awe of their talent at their journal here.

Also on the ATX agenda – cake tasting, floral, and linen appointments, and maybe even some bridesmaids’ dress shopping. These last few weeks have been a lot of emails and phone calls, but I’d say we are doing quite well for planning from states away!
