Right Now

Right Now
Right now, I am…

drinking my morning French vanilla cappuccino.

looking forward to date lunch since Ian has a half day and we missed date night on Wednesday because of his work.

trying to move up the weekly leaderboard in Words with Friends (username is ajcobby23 if you want to play!).

feeling like today is Monday because of the day off yesterday, and very glad it isn’t.

finding it hard to believe that my little puppy girl turned 3 yesterday.

really needing to take shop photos. I’ve been doing tons of paper prints, need to get them listed.

making a list for the grocery store.

hoping the post office gets the text/email notification for PO boxes fixed soon.

working on some marketing pieces for the shop and blog. Gotta have new cards for TxSC!

excited that beach vacation is less than 2 weeks away!

curious to know more about you guys! So, if you read this far, tell me 3 things about yourself in the comments: 1) what you do full-time; 2) your favorite book; and 3) where you’re from. Feel free to include more tidbits if you feel like it!

Happy weekend!


  1. 1)what you do full-time
    I work in customer support for an online retailer as my day job. Although most my shifts aren’t day-time but night time it’s more of a night job. Ok..this is rambling.
    I’m also going back to school to become a teacher and I will be leaving my day/night time job in 5wks!

    2) your favorite book:

    This is a really tough one. I have lots of books I enjoy reading but I think my 2 favorite books are Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind and Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

    You wouldn’t think 2 books that seemed to be on the opposite sides of each other could be my favorite but Terry Goodkind actually used some of the principles from Atlas Shrugged in Wizard’s First Rule and the Sword of Truth series. I actually found this out years later after reading the series and when I thought about it I was like..that makes complete sense.

    3) where you’re from: I’m originally from Chicago, IL but I moved to Connecticut as a teenager and then stayed until college and now I’m in Charlottesville, VA where I’ve been for the past 3 years.

    Hope you have fun with your lunch date!

    1. I bet you’ll be glad to get back on a daytime schedule! 🙂 And my boyfriend told me the same thing about Wizard’s First Rule. I’ve read that, but not all of Atlas Shrugged (ok, really just 30 pages so far…), but it’s the boy’s favorite book so I’ll power through it sometime I’m sure.

      And we did have fun on our lunch date, thanks! Had some hearty, tasty Aussie meat pies, mmm.

      Happy weekend!

  2. Ohhhhhh I’m gonna find you on WWF. I’m not a beast though, so go easy on me! 😉

    And you know already……….teacher, currently the Divergent series, Springfield, MO!

    1. The Words battle is on!! Haha. And I did know most of that. I’m waiting for the 3rd Divergent book myself!

  3. Yay puppy burthday!
    1.) Right now I full time look for work, haha. I guess my shop is my full time job at the moment.
    2.) I have a lot. A lot a lot a lot. But if I HAD to chose, it would be Harry Potter, hands down.
    3.) Massachusetts, and still there

    1. I’m an absentminded puppy mama, because I completely forgot to take any pictures of her yesterday – oops!

      I hope your shop is doing well! And I have the same problem picking a favorite book. So many I could name. 🙂

  4. French vanilla cappuccino, mmmm! Have a fabulous date lunch! ^_^

    1) what you do full-time; I don’t – and can’t – work because of mental disorders, however I definitely work on my blog whenever my mood will allow me!

    2) your favorite book; I LOVE Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone, since Jen and I met because of HP and it’s just… so fabulous. I love the magic, and the Christmas theme later on. I also love Dracula, I can never go wrong with that or Interview with the Vampire. Marni’s Mirror was my favorite when I was a little girl!

    3) where you’re from. West Jordan, UT! I moved here from IL when I was 18, so I could be with Jen! 😀 I am originally from Illinois!

    1. Thank you, we did! 🙂

      I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, too – so cute that’s how you & Jen met! And I still need to actually read Interview with a Vampire one of these days (I’ve seen the movie).

  5. Ah Words with Friends… I play in spurts. Sometimes I’m really into it other times not so much. 😉

    1. I am the Marketing Director and do support for a fixed asset depreciation software.

    2. The Harry Potter series is always a favorite. Don’t laugh… It really is. 😉

    3. NM, but have lived in AZ the last two years.

    1. I know what you mean! I go in spurts, too. My spurt is definitely in high gear right now, though.

      Also, I don’t think I knew that’s what you do! And why would I laugh at Harry Potter? I love that series! 🙂

  6. 1. I work part time at a department store and the rest of the time I’m blogging and running an etsy store.
    2. It’s so hard to choose a favourite book. It’s a toss up between Little Women by Louisa May Alcott and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
    3. I’m from Australia!

    1. Yay Australia! 🙂 I don’t think I’ve ever actually read Little Women, though I’ve seen some film adaptations. I should fix that.

  7. I’m so bad at Words with Friends that I ended up giving up on it…. but I do love me some Scramble with Friends.
