Currently – June 2017

As the first few hours of June tick by, I am struck with the desire to connect with you guys and let you know about some of the things that are going on in my life currently.

craving – Lavender Bubble Tea. I have always been a fan of bubble tea, but the place I used to get my regular fix from closed up shop (sigh) so I figured I was just out of luck. This past Friday my husband delightedly informed me that he’d not only found me bubble tea, but that he’d found me lavender bubble tea. I’ve had two tea fixes in the last 4 days… I might have a problem.

planning – a girls night/maybe brunch thing. From time to time, I like to invite some friends over, eat some great food, do some crafts, and just hangout. It’s been a few months since my last one, and midsummer is right around the corner, so I’ve been toying with the idea of a Midsummer get together. A night time event would be appropriate, but brunch seems to be easier for us to all get to. Fortunately, I still have a few weeks to hammer out the details.

making – sense of the chaos that is my house. My mom always helps me whip the house into shape whenever she visits, and I’ve done a decent job at keeping up with the common areas. The master bedroom however… well, I would never inflict that on her. Not dirty per se, just messy. I’ve been trying to sort through things as I clean so it is taking me a bit longer than I’d anticipated, but I am feeling quite pleased with the progress, meager though it may be.

wearing – a lot of sparkle. It’s a new coping mechanism I am working on. Sparkle/Glitter almost always makes me happy. So when I am having a rough day/morning, I throw on a pair of sparkle shoes or some shimmery eye shadow to provide a little pick me up. More fiscally responsible than stress shopping and easier on my waistline than stress eating. So far, so good 😉

readingCome as You Are by Emily Nagoski. One of the bloggers I follow posted about this book a little over a year ago, and I stuck it on my Amazon wishlist. Now I am working through my 31 before 32 goal of “finding my sexy,” and a little research seemed like the best place to start. I am only a few chapters in, but WOW, so many personal revelations about myself and the way that I view the physical, mental, and emotional complexities of sex/sexuality. There will probably be a post or two about some of the content after I’ve finished the book.  Trust me; you’re welcome.

So what are you currently up to?

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
