Currently: July 2016

Currently Cooking: Guacamole. I love avocados and it’s so easy this time of year to buy them in abundance. I’ve been mashing avocado and adding lime juice, diced onion, garlic powder, and chili powder. I love to dip it with tortilla chips, add it to salad instead of dressing, or put it on toast instead of butter.

Currently Anticipating: Nothing. This is truly my favorite time of year. I love the hot days, the fresh food, swimming pool, everything! I don’t want to do anything except for enjoy the warmth and time outside.

Currently Listening to: Guided relaxations on YouTube. If I can’t fall asleep or want to unwind after a long day, listening to these guided relaxations really help to relax before bed. Current favorite channel is ASMR Relax For A While.

Currently Craving: Watermelon. I have been loving watermelon drinks/smoothies, eating it plain, eating it with cereal, etc. It’s so delicious right now! If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out my Coconut Watermelon Slushie recipe!

Currently Drinking: Still drinking plenty of smoothies. I’ve also been enjoying iced coffee every once in a while during my lunch break at work. My go-to order is a cold brew with coconut milk.

Currently Indulging In: Dairy-free ice cream. Current favorites are the cashew milk based ones as they are the creamiest in my opinion. cashew milk ice cream

Currently Needing: A change. I don’t know about you but I often get itchy for a change of pace when I’ve been doing the same thing for a long time. I think it happens a lot to people like me who love to travel and love the adventure of change. I’m not sure I’ll ever be one of those people who can have the same job for 40 years and live in the same place the whole time.

Currently Loving: Summer! As I said before, I love love love love LOVE this time of year. I love being outside, and eating more fresh produce, and wearing summery dresses, and feeling the sun on my face.

Currently Watching: House Hunters International on Netflix. I watched the first collection several months ago and just noticed they added new episodes again. So, I’ve been loving watching the new episodes!

  1. I was just telling my husband that I am going to make fresh guac tonight!! All my avocados ripened at the same time!! I am loving watermelon too! can’t get enough!! I am so with you on the change thing. I love change and crave it constantly. My husband and I have moved a lot already and I love it. Even though I love Dallas, I like a change of scenery and seeing new cultures/places.

  2. I totally agree with you about craving a change when you get stuck in a continuous “rut”. Sometimes I like the routine and it makes me feel secure, but I will find that need for a change from time to time. Usually, I can satisfy that craving with a new haircut, or a trip to a new place, or trying a new recipe 🙂

  3. I lOVE that ice cream- my fav flavor! Avocado season is the best. Been lovin all the guac too! And adding avocados to my meals. Lately I’ve been craving adventure. I want to do more traveling and see the world!

    • Thanks, Emily. I know doesnt it look so pretty! Yes, i am dairy free and id recommend this ice cream to anyone dairy free or not! so delicious!

  4. Your “currently loving” is exactly how I feel! just want to be outdoors and soak it all in. Summer is such a fleeting time, but it is definitely my favorite.
    I am not usually an HGTV show kind of person, but we recently watched “Tiny House Hunters” on Netflix and I found that super intriguing!

    • Oh yes! I watched a couple episodes of that! The only thing that annoys me about that one is when people complain that the house theyre touring is too small. Im like umm guys…do you know youre on tiny house hunters?!
