I almost had 2 posts in 1 day yesterday. So close to being an over achiever. The Olympics and a nice evening walk with the husband got in the way. Sorry, peeps. Anyway, here are some "current" details about me. The link-up was yesterday, but better late than never right?

{current book}
 The Tall Book: A Celebration of Life from on High
The Tall Book by Arianne Cohen. As I was browsing the non-fiction section of the library, this caught my eye because I am considered tall by most standards. I'm not a giant, but I get tall comments on a regular basis. At 5'10" I felt this book calling my name. So far it's just a bunch of stats about tall people-- Did ya'll know we are smarter, live longer lives, and make more money? :-P But I'm actually bored with all the numbers and just want to skip to the sections about the world's tallest people.
{current playlist}
Pandora is set to my Brown Eyed Girl radio which plays some great oldies.
{current colors}
Since I like to get my money's worth, I buy fake nails in a box. Yanno...these things:

I wear them until they fall off and then apply more glue. When I get bored with the French tips, I apply nail polish to them and again wear until they fall off and apply more glue. I only give up on them when they really start looking cracked around the edges and worn down...and when I think my nails are being seriously damaged by the adhesive. Anyway, right now I have a dark purple color on them, but they're nearing that crappy phase so I won't take the time to snap a picture.
{current food/drink}
Water, water, water! I'm trying to stay as hydrated as possible. My favorite snack are these babies.

They really do taste like Ice Cream Sandwiches and they keep me from eating ice cream. I assume they're not as bad for me. I haven't actually done the research to confirm this.
{current favorite shows}
The Olympics, of course! JD and I are loving gymnastics, beach volleyball and swimming. During the day I occasionally catch some indoor volleyball, rowing, and cycling.
{current needs}
This Groupon:
$5 for a yearly subscription to Marie Claire, Bazaar, Elle, or Seventeen. $8 for Cosmo.
{current banes of my existence}
Always being hungry and then getting little to no physical activity due to the heat. This equals weight gain and I've gained enough.
{current celebrity crush}
These Olympians are nice to look at...
Ryan Lochte, swimming

{current #1 blessing}
Air conditioning. Although I haven't noticed being significantly warmer than those around me (like many people said I would being pregnant and all), it's been a hot summer and I am blessed to be able to stay indoors where it's cool.
{current indulgence}
I haven't had Starbucks in about a week (if you read yesterday's post...I was able to keep away from it for another day...we'll see how this weekend goes), but usually my answer is overpriced coffee.
{current outfit}
I'm wearing this dress:
 But this was 23 weeks and I'm now almost 38 I'm filling it out a bit more ;-)
{current excitement}
The weekend of course! Yes, I'm not working right now {The top 3 reasons for being a teacher are June, July and August :) } but I still get excited to hang out with JD for 2 days.
{current mood}
I hate to say bored because I know there is something I could be getting done...but it's true. My spirits were also just uplifted a bit because a cardinal landed in a tree outside my window. Cardinals are my favorite bird and they make me smile every time I see one. The Cardinal is Ohio's state bird and the mascot of my college alma mater.
{current favorite quote/verse}

love it!

{current wishlist item}
 A vacation. Or even a weekend getaway. Obviously with my due date looming neither of these is realistic!
{current favorite product}
My Turbie Twist! I use it every time I wash my hair because it's so much easier than putting a heavy towel on my head. Love it!

 Have a wonderful weekend!

Adorable dress! :) I had a hard time staying away from Starbucks while I was pregnant too. I'm a serious caffeine junkie.

And thank you for the Olympic eye candy! ;)
