Currently July + A Giveaway!

I know, I know, I just have tons of treats for ya'll this week, don't I?;)
Have any of ya'll bought anything with the Shop Sevan code I shared on Monday? 

Today I'm sharing with ya'll some things I'm doing currently. Jenna at Gold and Bloom blog had this fun list of questions, so I thought I'd "give it a go."

I am currently...

Toasting: marshmallows! Like I said a couple weeks ago, Jon's new hobby is grilling when we're home on the weekends (seriously, he's grilling everything!). And since I can't contribute to that portion of the dinner-making, I use the leftover coals to make us s'mores! Everyone knows they make for a great summertime desert.

Going: to the National Harbor. I've mentioned this place before as one of our favorite date night spots while we are living in Maryland, and I think one of those reasons is how much there is to do and try! We've been there 5 or 6 times now, and we still haven't tried everything.

Smelling: good! No, but seriously. I apparently smell GREAT. I was out yesterday on an errand after a 12-hour work day, and a woman told me that I smelled nice. After a 12-hour work day. What a compliment. Thanks, Bath & Body Works!
My sweet hubby's birthday gift to me:)
But since I am mostly unavailable, and you probably won't be smelling me anytime soon, you could also be smelling my favorite Yankee Candle right now;)

Wearing: working clothes. Which means jeans and a t-shirt, typically. My inner country girl doesn't mind, but the girly-girl inside of me is not very happy! But hey, that's what date nights and weekends are for, right?
(A few of my recent weekend/date night outfits)

Wishlisting: This kimono from Shop Sevan, and these yellow shorts from Target!
(Do you think it could work to wear them together?? Not sure, but I want to try!)

What are ya'll toasting/going/smelling/wearing/wishlisting currently?
