Currently | 5.15.17

Watching | Guardians of the Galaxy.
> Summer movies have started and I am thrilled! We just saw Guardians and will catch the latest Aliens. There are so many movies coming out, it’s my favorite time of year for movies. I also caught up where I left off on season 7 of The Vampire Diaries (don’t laugh) and am ready to start season 8. That won’t happen until I’m on a plane heading for Indy for BlogHouse.

Reading | Books!

> After a two-month dry spell, I read 4 books in 7 days. Just stick me by a pool and I’m a voracious reader. I was so excited and proud to read my Parisian pal Lindsey’s new book, The New Paris which I devoured along with a travel blogger memoir, a memoir about 24 hours in the life of a Sous Chef and the next in the series from my beloved JD Robb. Seriously, if you are not getting daily emails from BookBub or The Modern Ms. Darcy you are missing out. I bought Sous Chef for practically nothing the day it was featured and it is now selling for full price on Amazon.

Working On | The Job Search.
> I’m still plugging away at this nearly every day. It a numbers game with a little bit of luck thrown in. Send me good vibes – and job prospects if you know of any senior level marketing (digital, content, social media) jobs!

Feeling | Confined.
> As I mentioned in my Project Discover #14 update, staying a week in a roomy condo while we were in Kauai highlighted the fact that the RV is feeling a little confined at the moment. I don’t have the most ergonomic set-up and the wifi is terrible! Plus I miss a real kitchen.

Planning | A Road Trip.
> We are missing our friends in the San Francisco Bay Area, so we are planning a quick trip down in early June. We’ll drive from Portland to the city something I haven’t done in about 30 years!

Loving | Warmer weather.
> The three days we had this week of sunny skies was awesome. I am very focused on the lifestyle (diet and exercise) changes we are making and an important part of that is daily exercise. Hard to do when it is raining sideways! I’m hoping we will see a lot more sunny days soon!

My Favorite Photo | Poolside.

Kauai

> It’s been a long time since I had a vacation in a tropical spot and did absolutely nothing. I couldn’t tell you much about Kauai except that it is beautiful and that the tuna poke is damn good. I spent a lot of time relaxing under this tiki umbrella and in the pool.

@Ra'Nesha, it was so funny, can't wait to see what they do with all those great actors in Volume 3 (if they're doing one!) - love the addition of Stallone and Ving Rhames!

I've been looking for my next book to read and can't wait to pick up a copy of 24 hours in the life of a Sous Chef. I'm so jealous of your fun road tip next month. There's truly nothing better. And you're so right about warmer weather. I've been so excited to be able to get out and go for my afternoon walks again!

@Ali, the Sous Chef book is FASCINATING! It's amazing that these people are so dedicated to cooking - the 18-20 hour very physical days are insane - the only way to do it is if you love it!

I like making monthly plans activity too. To make sure I won't missed any festivals or local activities in our area. So far my family were just busy in our vegetables/fruits garden so we can harvest our crop on time. We do lots of hiking and sight seeing as well. Basically more on relaxing our backyard and enjoying the warm weather.
