Currently Loving // 007

Tuesday, November 18, 2014


It's been a minute!  A super hot minute since I've done a "Currently Loving" post!  Thanks to Crystal turning her Currently Loving posts into a link-up, I'm forcibly back. Haha - but here is just a little collection of things I'm loving!!  And once you're done checking out what I'm loving, you should create your own list and link up with Crystal!

One thing I can't stand is buying products when you can't test them out *cough* drugstore products.  So I love love love finding blog posts like these from A Beautiful Mess that I can get some insights from and see if I think something would work for me!  At least it isn't a huge risk in losing money, but still!

This site is full of laughs, and is fun to catch up on during a quick work break.  There are notes for every type of situation.  I thought it was funny that I found some notes that related to my professional life.  It was nice to get a little chuckle amidst the madness at work on a Friday afternoon.

Scandal
A few weeks ago I was on a Scandal binge on Netflix and I don't know what the heck I was doing waiting so long to jump on the bandwagon. Hello, here I am!  The binge watching of three seasons was a little overwhelming.  Sadly, to the point where at times I forgot that Obama was actually our president.  Sad times I tell you!  Anyway - if you're oblivious to this series.  GET ON IT NOW!  AND CRYSTAL ----- this is considered favorite interwebs stuffs... because you can't access Netflix without the internet ;)!

Chips and Salsa
Lately I've been on a MAJOR chips and salsa trip.  Like my mouth salivates at work and I can't wait to get home to get crack-a-lackin on some chips!  We have this Mexican restaurant called El Mariachi and OH-EM-GEE .... their salsa!!! BOOOMMBBBB!! And now I want some.  Mmmm... That's a good idea since they are right down the road from me.  Salsa, chips and their guacamole.  Ok enough already!

Come on and link up with me and Crystal!

Happy Monday!

Monday, November 17, 2014


Half of November has up and left already.  Isn't that crazy!  So - hello Monday!  Good morning.  How was everyone's weekend?  I hope it was full of memories and relaxation.  

This weekend was really nice, of course besides the fact that I was up before the sun on both Saturday and Sunday, but you know what they say... "the early bird get the worm.." or something like that.  

I got to spend time with all my favorite people - including, dare I say it, my girlfriends!!  Life is busy, and we each have our own little lives - which gets in the way of hanging out the way we used to when we were all single (and working in town, hello happy hour and Indigo); so it was definitely a treat to be able to have some girl time on Saturday complete with Bloody Marys!  I've known these girls since we were in elementary school, so its nice to just be relaxed and ourselves and not so worked up about everything being so perfect for a get together.  The best part of our lil brunch rendevous was Missy forgetting to get chips when sister knew she was making her famous salsa.  Actually... she forget jalepenos too.  We picked a couple up for her, but then the chips slipped her mind.  So we had tortillas.  And just made do and fried those suckers!! 

Bloody Mary's, salsa and "chips", steak, lifetime friends, good conversation and Scandal on Netflix could not have been a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon!  We swear we're gonna do it again soon, but knowing us - we'll see each other for Geneva's birthday in January!  So it'll be group texts for now, which are always entertaining!

Of course Sunday Funday was the same as every Sunday, which I enjoy.  And today - I'm off!  Hello three-day weekend, aren't you all jealous of me now! :)  So while you all read this, I'm probably still sleeping in, or maybe I'm taking the day head on!  At any rate, I hope your weekend went swell and you have an amazing week this week!!!

xoxo, Aukele

Help Me Choose a Holiday Card!

Friday, November 14, 2014

As each day passes I get more and more excited that Christmastime is near!  Like literally, I’m about to start the Christmas Pandora station in 3…2…1.

Anyway, as I prepare to get those lovely DIY Christmas gifts underway, I should also get my holiday cards squared off too!  And it seems like every year that passes, it gets harder to decide on a card design, let alone a card company to go through.  Each of them have amazing designs that can fit anyone’s style.  Choices, choices – right?  So not only do you have to pick a card company to stick to so you don’t spend days looking at cards; and not only do you have to pick out a design out of the thousands that are available; you also have to pick out a layout now!  Do we want a traditional card, or just a flat piece?  Picture or no picture?  Cut out or not?  Foil?  I mean the choices are literally endless.

Last week I got caught up on Minted and knew I had to use them to do my holiday cards this year! It’s just that I still can’t decide on what I want.  So I was hoping my lovely readers could help me narrow it down a bit.  I know I want a flat card opposed to a folded one.  I just can't decide, water color or foil?  Ornament card?  Bah Hum Bug!  HELP HELP HELP!!!
