May 2017: Currently

Posted May 3, 2017 by shooting in Uncategorized / 32 Comments

I’m linking up with Anne at In Residence today for the May 2017 edition of Currently. Feel free to share what you are currently doing in the comments!


Honestly, with the strict diet I’m on, I’m not baking anything. I am cooking some things but nothing too exciting – mainly just pork chops because they are quick and easy!

Listening (To):

I’m listening to a lot of music on my iPod lately, and that’s mostly Mayday Parade (in preparation for the concert last week), Years and Years (I adore this band!), and Lea Michele (her first album – her second just came out and I need it ASAP!).


That it’s my birthday month. My actual birthday is May 30th, so not until the very end of the month, but I’m sure I’ll celebrate a bit all month long. It’s always a good excuse to see friends! Oh, and in case you’re wondering – I’m turning 27!

I'm currently loving, listening, and remembering this May 2017- come share your currents! Click To Tweet


Nothing at the moment but my mom and I made seed bombs about a month ago at a library event so we’re going to hopefully get those in the garden soon.


My time in London. I went this past September and I seriously miss it already. It was so much fun. I really hope to go back again in the future sometime, though I know my mom really wants to visit Ireland in the next four-five years so we’ll be planning/saving for that one! Speaking of London though  – I know I never did any posts on it, and I’m sorry about that, but it is in the works! It’ll be a new blog series of sorts and I’ll share reviews and thoughts about all the various things I did, saw, ate, and generally enjoyed. Hopefully this will be of interest for you all!!

  1. Yay for your birthday month! I understand having a birthday at the end of the month, but I still celebrate all month. I kind of have to, to a point. My birthday is new years eve. Everyone wants to celebrate on my birthday, but not me exactly. You must run into the same situation with memorial day and summer mode. So a month long birthday is in order! Enjoy!

  2. If you get a chance to go to Ireland, definitely do! It’s one of my favorite places ever (and I’ve traveled a fair amount). We were in Dublin and Galway and I fell in love with both!

  3. Enjoy your birthday month! I’ve only ever been to London a couple of times as a child and as I live In the UK I should really have visited it more! I have a trip planned there for his winter and I’m really looking forward to it 😊

  4. Happy early birthday to you! I love the idea of a birthday month! Those seed bombs sound interesting. I visited London many years ago and want to go back! Thanks for linking up!

  5. Yes!!! I can’t wait to hear all about London! I haven’t been in years and would be lovely to see your travel photos. Also I never heard of seed bombs–I’m intrigued:)

  6. I have been wanting to bake more, but I don’t know what I want to bake lol. I love my iPod. I’ve been listening to a lot of songs by Nelly Furtado. Happy early birthday! I hope you have a great birthday month!

  7. I would love to visit Ireland as well Lauren, my mother was born there and would be lovely to explore. Oooooh 27! Happy pre birthday! 27 is such a wonderful age, I remember saving for our new house and looking as display homes. It’s that age where adulting seems to really kick in.

  8. Oooohh I love currently’s!! When I was bored in class, when I was in high school, I would look around the class room and document exactly what all my classmates were doing. I called it the 9A chronicles, lol. I still have them, in my parent’s house.
    Currently: at Starbucks, blogging.
    Been eating a lot of sushi recently, have not baked anything.
    listening to way too much Kpop.
    loving: the warm weather that has finally hit New York
    Remembering: this past year as I want to soak up all the moments before I move again to a whole other city.

  9. Happy Birthday month!! I’m glad you mentioned planting. It reminded me that I really need to get on to planting some Avacado’s and re-potting a few other things!

  10. I hope you are enjoying your birthday month! Heck yeah, celebrate all month long! I remember you posting about the seed bombs, what exactly are they or will grow to be?

  11. awesome, love this post, and the idea for doing it too! Nice little comprehensive but fun breakdown of the month… and all your activities and plans sound great!!! Also happy early birthday enjoy! This month I’ll be prepping for my honeymoon to Amsterdam and Paris which begins in less than 2 weeks, can’t believe it! Summer isn’t even here yet and it feels like somehow it’s already flying! hahah – Here’s to a great May! xx Bee

  12. I need to start planting some things, too. Just front porch flowers, but still 🙂 London sounds lovely. I’ve never been and I’d love to go!

  13. I would love to hear about your trip to London – I’m travelling vicariously through blogs at this stage of my life. 🙂
    Happy Birthday Month! My birthday is Aug 2 so I never have that feeling that the whole month is leading up to it… I suppose I should get the party started right after 4th of July!

    I love hearing what is happening in my blogging friends lives 🙂

    Happy Birthday month! It is getting so hot here now, I haven’t turned the oven on for a bit, so no baking is not happening here either.
