 sweater: Forever 21 / skirt: Belk / headband: c/o Paisley or Polkadots / socks: We Love Colors / boots: c/o Minnetonka Moccs / lip gloss (elsa): c/o Radiant Cosmetics

loving: the cherry blossoms growing all over town. though it's been rainy and chilly the past few days, the cherry blossom tree growing outside out window is still staying strong the blossoms are definitely pinker but not too many have fluttered away. i cannot get over how beautiful they are! 

looking forward to: headed down to the beach this upcoming Monday! the water will probably still be too cold to swim in but i am excited to just get out of town for a bit, soak it up in a hot tub, and live it up at the beach house, which is right along the beach..which means many long walks on the beach with my man. we also will have a date night at one of my favorite restaurants, The Crab Trab. i can already hear the fried shrimp calling my name. 

obsessing: over this adorable headwrap from my friend, Liz. i love the pattern but especially love the lace backing. be sure to check out her shop (which includes headwraps for babies, too!) and get to know her over at her adorable blog! she is the sweetest thing!

watching: actually re-watching Parenthood with Ryan. he is loving it and i love it so much, i do not mind watching it again. of course, watched the finale of Walking Dead - and oh, my goodness, i don't know if i was the only one getting so bored with all the drawn out episodes about the governor but i was so happy to have a more intense, action-packed episode last week. now if only season 5 would get here already. and now it seems all my shows are wrapping up, so i am starting to try out some new ones one Netflix like Hart of Dixie and Friday Night Lights. haven't gotten too far on either but i can already tell that i'm going to love them both.

eating: not to be all tmi, but it's that time of the month and i want to eat everything i see. and it doesn't help that there are easter goodies leftover. totally inhaled all of my easter jolly rancher sour gummies and now working on (ahem, several) packs of pink sugary peeps. 

listening to: i cannot get over Justin Timberlake's new album. obviously. thought i haven't bought it (yet), i am thoroughly enjoying the crap out of Mirrors and Pusher Love Girl. who would have ever thought Nsync would birth such a genius?! 

over the moon about: my sister finally announced the gender of her baby! i am going to have a NIECE! i think most of us expected it to be a boy just with all those weird old wives' tales they say - but what i am learning from sister's experience, as well as a lot of my other preggo friends, is that those old wives' tales are really just old wives' tales. and don't you worry. Aunt Illy is pumping out poppy garlands for her little niece as we speak! 

what about you, friend? what are you currently up to these days of spring? if you have your own "currently" post, be sure to include it below. i'd love to check it out. and thanks always to Dani and Megan for the original inspiration of this post. 

much love.

  19. Horowitz investigation and discovery of the text messages, Mr. McCabe denied ever attending the meeting, but Mr. Strzok told the inspector general the former FBI deputy director was there.. In later years, though, Cosby went from America's dad to black America's scold. He railed against problems in the black community that he said were black people's fault. At an NAACP event in 2004, he gave what's now known as the "Pound Cake" speech, an angry rant about poor parenting and crime.
