* Reading more books. Lots more.

Loving: Summer, puppies, all-the-time dates with the boyfriend, cable, running, electricity, air conditioning, rain, chai teas, scarves, Guillermo's cuddles, mango eos lip balm, magenta, little brother growing up, greek yogurt and granola, ice water, girlfriends, Pinterest. <3

Reading: Not reading anything right now, but I am planning to start John Green's new book The Fault in Our Stars. He is one of my favorite young adult authors, and this is his latest book. Looking for Alaska was one of my favorites in high school, so I am really excited to see what he has come up with now!

Watching: I have been watching The Killing on Netflix. I believe there is only one season of it. It's pretty morbid, and was a total last resort when looking for something to watch online, but it turned out to be pretty entertaining and it's held my attention enough to watch at least 4 episodes. It is about a family who's oldest daughter is found dead in the trunk of a mayor candidate's campaign car at the bottom of a lake and the investigators' quest to find her murderer. Basically, it's just to tide me over until Breaking Bad, Big Brother, and Weeds are back in full swing. I <3 summer TV.

Anticipating: Moving into the new house! Bret [hopefully] will be closing on the new house at the end of this week or next. I am so excited to be living with him in a new area of town. And in a house, with a huge backyard for the pups. Also anticipating Bunbury music festival. Cincinnati is finally getting their act together and putting on a decent festival and Sunday night's headliner is Death Cab for Cutie. Bret's birthday present to me is tickets to see them and I CANNOT WAIT. (Best boyfriend, ever). ALSO anticipating getting tattooed on Friday. FINALLY finishing the front part of my upper arm underneath the matryoshka. Can't wait to show off pictures (which will totally be happening real-time via Instagram! Femmenamala if you want to follow along! Lastly, getting Lego Harry Potter Years 4-7 out of storage so I can finally finish it!

Listening to: iPhone on shuffle, all the time. Bluetooth in the Mazda is the best thing since sliced bread and Chihuahuas.

Planning: New house deco! Bret and I have been constant brainstorming about furniture (we get to completely re-do the living room) and kitchen renovations on the new place. IKEA is going to be very happy with us.

Working on: I am currently working on getting myself on a gym/running schedule. This won't really be completely possible until we are moved into the new place, but I am excited to start holding myself to going to the gym a set number of times a week and no more eating out. 

Wishing: That summer lasted forever.
