Sunday Currently 3/31/13

Today I'm trying something new on Glitterary Girl. I'm taking the idea from fellow blogger siddathornton to share with you some of the things that are happening with me right here and right now. It's also giving me the chance to stretch my writing muscles in a different way. I can't promise I'll do this every Sunday, but I'll try to participate every now and then!

reading Shanghai Girls by Lisa See on my Kobo. I loved Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, and couldn't wait to read another one by her. I'm also reading tons of blogs. Oh, and I read the obituaries every day.
writing blog posts, ideas for a new venture I'm taking on, and my monthly shopping budget. I've done okay this year so far with the budget, sticking to 4% of my take-home salary each month. I didn't even go nuts with birthday money, although I so could have in Club Monaco the other day. Did I mention I bought a thin cashmere blend layering turtleneck there for $9? I also tried on a pair of patterned pants but decided that the seven pair of colored/patterned jeans I've bought since last spring are sufficient.
listening to Heartbreak Warfare on iTunes. Who is John Mayer dating now? I can't keep up.
thinking that I've eaten way too many empty calories this weekend. Let's count: cheesecake, at least two cupcakes, Krispy Kreme donut, an obscene number of Mini Eggs, apple pie, and two creme eggs. 
smelling B&BW Forever Sunshine lotion. I thought it would be a good scent for Easter.
wishing someone else would mop my floors
hoping that by freezing all my Easter treats (after tomorrow), I will forget about them for a few months
wearing black jeans and a hoodie (Easter outfit is waiting in the wings)
loving MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study. I wear it every day.
wanting to see my far-away friends 
needing to find a black bikini bottom (quick trip to Joe Fresh tomorrow - last week they didn't have my size)
feeling a mix of sugar-high and relaxed from yoga 
clicking on Style Spy to see who the Girl of the Week is. I'm all about street style.

I never would have thought of it as a "good" place to look for bathing suits, but I found some cute ones at Walmart, and I believe they have lots of variety of black styles. Here they are $7 a piece, so you could check there if Joe Fresh is still out :) JF makes good ones, though!

Happy Easter
