WIAW: Currently

Good Morning, World!
Hope everyone is fine on this beautiful Wednesday morning :)
I'm doing good and had a fabulous 3-day weekend.
Before I show you all my food from yesterday, I thought I'd catch everyone on my life up with a "currently" survey (as seen on Carrots N' Cake blog).
Let's go!

Current Book
Ok, so I've been banned from the library.  I got a notice a while back saying I still had this cookbook checked out, but the thing is...I don't have it.  I'm pretty sure I checked it back in.  Buuuut, my procrastination has really bit me in the rear, because months and months have gone by and I haven't followed up on in :(  So, I'm sad about it.
What's funny is that I have always been an avid reader, but over the last year, it's really been tapering off and I've been sloooowwwwlllyy making my way through my Mom's copy of Water for Elephants.  I like it.  I just have not been in a reading mood.  Maybe that will change during lazy summer days by the pool?  We'll see.

Current Music
Yes, that's Incubus.  Yes, I'm stuck in a time warp where I basically only listen to 90s and early 2000s music on Pandora.  But I truly love my Incubus Pandora station.  It soothes me.

Current Nail Color
I cannot keep polish on my fingernails.  Maybe because I wash my hands alot?  Well, my current toenail color is mint green with glitter.  Flip flop DIY here.

Current Drink
Coffeeeeee!!!  Always coffee.
Well, really that's my morning drink.  I drink mostly water otherwise.  Although I love diet gingerale, as well.

Current Food
Cherries are in season!  So they are in mah belly almost every day.
Also, fun fact for you mommas of fur babies.  Cherry pits are poisonous to dogs.  Not a fun fact at all, really.  But Bizzy got a hold of some cherries that she sneakily stole from my lunch bag last week.  She actually just nibbled the flesh and did NOT eat the seed, so we were very lucky indeed.  But, watch your pups, peeps.

Current Favorite Show
I think I've seen every aired episode of Chopped.  I cannot get enough!  Love it!  So glad they are still making new episodes!
Speaking of new episodes, I just finished the season finale of Smash and it was awesome....but found out it's been cancelled.  It's so sad!  Any other Smash fans out there?

Current Wish List/Current Needs
I wish I had & currently neeeeeeeddd this ice cream machine!  It has got to happen.

Current Indulgence
I made a s'mores bar this weekend.  Nuff said.

Current Blessing
I don't want to get too sentimental, but this guy makes me so happy and I am very very blessed to know him.  Best boyfriend ever.

Current Outfit
Currently, I'm actually at work, so I'm not wearing cut off shorts, but everyday when I hit the door, it's cut off shorts for this girl!  See, I'm in a time warp.  Cut off shorts & Incubus? Perfection.

Current Excitement

Ducks in the pool!  Always guaranteed to make me smile :)
This is Miles and Maisy Duck and they come around randomly every year.
Those holes in the concrete are for the stairs...guess I forgot to put them out...

Ok, ready for some food stuff?
Peas and Crayons

Breakfast: PB Toast & Berries
I used to think bananas were the best fruit with peanut butter, but lately it's been strawberries that take the cake.  Mmmm, cake...
Anyways, had a high fiber, whole wheat slice of toast with crunchy natural peanut butter and strawberry slices for breakfast.  Coffee X 2 on the side.

Morning Snack: Grapes
For a.m. snack, I squelched my hunger with some big ole grapes.  Such a sensible and delicious snack.

Lunch: Turkey Burger
For Memorial Day we made a million turkey burgers (not really) and have lots of leftovers.  So I had a leftover turkey burger (bun-less) with provolone and avocado.  Hummus and veggies on the side.  I put cherries on my plate, but I was too stuffed to eat them, so I saved them for later.
Somehow my dessert stomach still needed some food:

Afternoon Snack: Wasa, Cherries
I ate my lunch cherries with a Swiss cheese smeared Wasa cracker before heading to p.m. boot camp.
It was a doozy.

Dinner: Grilled Asparagus & Mushroom Omelet
My original plan for dinner was a frittata, but since the oven is out of commission (read: needs to be cleaned), I made a grilled veggie omelet.  I grilled some asparagus and mushrooms in my grill pan, then started cooking 2 eggs mixed with one egg white.  After the egg had cooked for a minute, I added the veggies and some reduced fat feta cheese and carefully folded over the eggs.  Extra asparagus and a slice of wheat toast on the side.
Such a perfectly satisfying meal.
A microwave s'more happened, as well.
Sooo messy.  Sooo worth it.

Wow, this post was long.  Thanks for soldiering on and reading the whole thing.  Here's a picture of Bizzy the Dog to make it all worth your while:

Have a great rest of the week!!!

I'm freaking out over the idea of Reeses in a smore. :O
I have to agree, love strawberries with peanut butter!
