Where to start....

Wow...I have so much to tell you. What can I say...summer is my favorite time of year and the last thing I want to do is sit in front of a computer screen. BUT I have missed you guys so much!!!

The best way for me to catch you up is to use this little template that I have borrowed from Veronica a few times.

making: a list of all the blog posts I want to write
cooking: Crepes...and Philly Cheesesteaks (not on the same night). Haha I've been trying to start cooking more often. We have been eating out way too much lately.But watching Master chef has been inspiring me ;)
reading:Sarah's Key. I just finished Wild by Cheryl Strayed. I am waiting to read Allegiant (the 3rd Divergent Series book) once its available at the digital library.
watching: So you think you can Dance!!! One of my all time favorites. Anyone else?? Excited for the tour!!!! They are coming to Richmond and D.C.
looking: at all of the pictures from our day trip to Philadelphia
playing: with my new iPhone. That's a whole story in itself but let's just say my Samsung Galaxy Nexus quickly declined.
sewing: haha I wish but Gabby is gonna sew me some color-block curtains :)
wishing: time would SLOW DOWN!! There just aren't enough weekends, right?
enjoying: time with friends (I've been seeing Liz a lot lately!)
celebrating Liz's birthday
waiting: for Hokie football to start
liking: my newest sponsor Ruffled Paper!! Gonna be getting some gold paper straws from her shop for my jewelry party.
wondering: what my next house project will be?! 
listening: to lots of Sinatra and Buble lately. It really helps me focus at work.
thanking: the interns for all of their help this summer. I'm gonna miss them.
going: nowhere soon. Next stop Blacksburg (we just got back from Delaware & Philly)
loving: my new-ish gym!! I LOVE IT THERE and I love my workout partner Laura!! Zumba is my favorite class but Step is a close second. We just learned a new Zumba routine to Work by Lil John.
hoping: to visit Blacksburg soon...I MISS IT more than I ever imagined. (do you see a commonality in this post?)
marveling: over our new home. So much has changed since this time last year and I just can't believe that we have this amazing place to call our own.
smelling: my new homemade candle I got at the Hanover Tomato Festival. It's a seamist scent.
wearing: lots of jewelry. I have quite the extensive collection now. And that is going to keep growing since my neighbor sells jewelry for Premier Designs and I'm hosting a jewelry party soon!
thinking: that I am a terrible friend and wish I could just take like a month off to catch up with my ladies.
pinning: lots of food. Homemade ice cream and s'mores are both on our summer bucket list! 
creating: lots of mood boards for e-design clients. Did you see the last one?
feeling: grateful for everything I have and excited for what the future holds.
missing: VERONICA!!! COME BACK!!!
