Currently: August Edition

Linking up with Anne (and her guest cohost Dana!) today for the "Currently" series :)

Hearting: That it's August and that means football is here! The Bengals first preseason game is next week which absolutely blows my mind. If you are as excited about football as I am, be it NFL, college, high school, peewee... be sure to save the date for August 19th! I'll be hosting a one-time Football Friday link-up to post about all your favorite football stuff. Each year I find more and more football fans in the blog world and I LOVE it.

Watching: Last Chance U. Well, sadly- we finished the whole season in one weekend. Has anyone else watched it? It's a 6 episode documentary on Netflix featuring the East Mississippi Community College football team. Jared and I were hooked right away and absolutely loved it. If you're a football fan you will love it too. Heads up, not safe for kiddos... lots of language, as to be expected in the world of football.

Exploring: Hmm, I'm not sure this really counts but I've been exploring real estate online. I am obsessed with looking at houses, I always have been. Pretty sure I should have been a real estate agent because I never get tired of comparing comps, seeing what's recently sold in certain areas, etc. Plus, I always have to check and see what dreamy beach houses are for sale on Hilton Head Island.

Creating: All kinds of fun things in our Etsy shop. My problem is that I have too many ideas and not enough hours in the day to make them all happen! ;) We still regularly release new items and right now the back to school stuff and the glitter items are my favorite.

Eating: Anything that's quick! Since adjusting to life with a new baby isn't exactly easy I have kept the fridge stocked with easy grab-and-go types of foods. I feel like during the day I rarely find or make the time to sit down and eat a full meal so I just grab snacks when I can. It's worked for now but I really need to get back on the meal planning again. Too many hodge-podge meals going on at our house these days.

I hope everyone's having a good week so far. 
Hoping this is the month I finally catch up in the blogworld. I'm trying!! :)

  5. Ooooh, keeping up with what dreaming beach houses cost seems fun! Maybe I'll do that some today to take my mind off of other work stuff :)

  6. Yes! FOOTBALL! Since we don't live in OH anymore, we just signed up for the season pass on DirectTV. We're not allowed to have a dish in our apartment so we can pay around $200 for the season which gets us all the NFL games on the laptop (except the handful of TNF games that are on the NFL network). It seems a bit steep but we used to have to go to a sports bar to watch the bengals. With beers and food, we definitely ended up spending more than $200/season. WHO DEY!

    We've been obsessing over real estate lately too. So addictive. We're looking to buy our first house (!!!) and recently got pre-qualified for a mortgage and are going to look at houses this weekend. Yipeeee!

  13. Hooray for football! I'm a Georgia Bulldog fan. I like watching pro ball but don't have any big favorites there really. I almost went to Hilton Head yesterday but went to Tybee instead. Needed some beach time! I'm off to check out your Etsy store now. (Stopped by from the Currently link up.)

  19. I'm totally in on the football post! Gotta start thinking now...I can't believe the season is basically here! YESSS! I haven't heard of Last Chance U, but I'm definitely adding it to my queue. Have you watched Undefeated? Tears for days, but it's SO, SO good. Your football-loving heart will melt.

  21. EMCC is one town over from where we live now :) It's been interesting to see everyone talk about Last Chance U and hear what they think about it. Esp very interesting after some of the media coverage here last year ;) mostly about those sideline brawls, ha!
