Instagram from a few days ago

Reading… I'm actually finding a teeny bit of time some evenings to squeeze in some reading. I'm finishing up a couple books that have been taking a while to finish during all the moving and such. I don't have all my books with me yet though and it doesn't feel right that I can't just pick up one of my books and start reading. My husband is in the middle of making me a custom book shelf though and I can't wait to use it!

Obsessing Over…pesky beetles. I've always had really good luck whenever I've gardened in the past, but at our new place, my veggies are being raided! After close watch, I discovered that brown beetles, that only come out at night, are mutilating the heck out of my hard earned plants. I've done so many failed things to try and get rid of them organically that I've literally become obsessed with getting rid of them! With some luck though, recently, they've been slowly disappearing.

Working on… Sewing curtains and altering some vintage clothes.

Thinking about… How I'm gonna be an auntie to TWO new babies this early spring! I mentioned on Instagram how my oldest brother and his wife are expecting. And now we just recently discovered my other brother and his wife are expecting. Their due dates are about one month apart, and I can't wait to meet them!

Anticipating… My husband LOVES really any super hero movie. It has to be pretty bad in order for him not to go kinda crazy for them. I like a few but am really picky when it comes to the ones I like. I can't stand the cheesy ones and i prefer it to be a really thought out film instead of just action packed comedy cheese. With that said, I've probably never loved a comic book character based movie as much as I like Christopher Nolan's Batman films. This upcoming one will be his last one, but I'm certain it will be the best one!

Listening to… I've had all of Bon Iver's albums on repeat this ENTIRE week. I always forget how much I enjoy them until I hear one of there songs again.

Eating... raw coconut and fresh pineapple salad. It's so, so good! It reminds my of a pina-collata. I might have mentioned this earlier, but I started eating vegan after watching a documentary called Forks Over Knives. I'm not completely against meat actually(I think a small amount every once in a while is fine) but I just can't seem to touch it recently. I've been eating all just fruits, veggies, and whole grains. I also took out all processed foods, including sugar, and flour. Someone asked me if I noticed any difference and I really couldn't tell. I swayed a teeny after about a week, and after that I felt kinda miserable. I was out of energy and felt tired all the time, but couldn't even fall asleep as easily as normal. It was enough to make me realize how much I need to continue eating this way. I highly recommend Forks Over Knives if you haven't seen it already. Even my husband was super pumped after watching it! If you HAVE already seen it, let me know what your thoughts are on it.
