What I’m…

It’s been over a month since our first edition of “What I’m” currently doing. I thought it was about time to see what changes have occurred. Notably, TV has changed a bit since summer season is upon us. And Brian still doesn’t have any dreams (he thinks he making a ‘clever’ funny, but I didn’t laugh… much).

What I’m…. Reading
Brian: The World is Flat and Brewing Better Beer.

Hilary: I bought a new (Kindle) book yesterday called Good Enough Is the New Perfect: Finding Happiness and Success in Modern Motherhood. A college teacher of mine is featured in the book, so I am looking forward to reading about her. Not to mention, it received excellent reviews.

Watching
Brian: Trailer Park Boys, Bizarre Foods and Modern Marvels.

Hilary: Covert Affairs started back up again, and Sanctuary on SciFi. Also, there is a House Hunters International show I’ve been dying to record. I’ve been following Design Mom and her amazing house in France was featured. The show already aired, but the next showing is on July 8th! I have it marked on the calendar.

Both: We’ve been watching season 1 of Fringe like crazy! My parents bought us the DVD and it’s our new go-to evening show. But now True Blood is starting, so Fringe will take a backseat for a month or two for this vampire favorite.

Listening to
Hilary: Alright, I confess. I downloaded the 99 cent album from Amazon the day they had that killer deal on the Born this Way Lady Gaga album. I’m now obsessed.

Brian: I just throw a bit of stoner rock (Fu Manchu, Sleep, Om…etc) on Grooveshark and let the radio take over .

Surfing
Brian: Beer Forums, Lifehacker, Gizmodo.

Hilary: I’m still following mom blogs and design blogs. Currently enjoying 7th House on the Left, and The Daily Doty for my dose of funnies in the morning. And I’m now on Twitter, so I’m spending some time there and enjoying watching the back and forth between some of my favorite bloggers. I also joined For the Love of Blogs and run into some new good reads daily.

Doing in my spare time
Hilary: Finally pulled off some video from our video camera! Playing in iMovie is pretty fun, though I’m still loving Lightroom and editing photos. Getting used to the color differences on the Mac has been difficult (perhaps a real monitor calibrator is in my future?). We’re also spending more time outside now that it’s nice out!

Brian: Being a Dad, Brewing beer, Yard work, building shelves.

Planning
Brian: To ride more this summer and build a shed ramp, installing a utility sink in the basement.

Hilary: On my dining room table are two fabrics (here’s the gorgeous print, the other side will be a solid), waiting to be sewn into a table runner. Also, Jameson’s Easter basket materials are still sitting under my craft table… yikes. And that scrapbook? Not even started. Guess you could say I do a lot of planning and not a lot of doing.

Dreaming
Hilary: I am dreaming in frames! Over the bed and up the stairs. Hopefully that dream will become reality soon!

Brian: Don’t remember.

What I’m…

Today, I asked Brian to answer some questions to make a post that includes a little about him. Thanks Brian for being a trooper and responding today while you were at work. You win some hubby points.

What I’m…. Reading
Brian: The World is Flat and Designing Great Beers

Hilary: I don’t read much of anything anymore, there isn’t time! In my queue are the newest books by Jacqueline Carey, Kim Harrison, Juliet Marillier (some of my favorite fantasy authors). If I’m reading anything right now, it’s magazines like Better Homes and Gardens or Readers Digest.

Watching
Brian: No Reservations, Dexter, Archer.

Hilary: In Plain Sight, 16 & Pregnant and The Sanctuary all just started back up. I am also watching Extreme Couponing and Pregnant in Heels, all of which I watch without Brian haha. I also have a Netflix DVD that’s been sitting waiting for me to watch for a month, oops.

Both: We like to watch Desperate Housewives, 30 Rock, Outsourced, The Office together, Family Guy, and Archer. That’s a lot of TV. We’ll be watching less when some of these shows end their season and it starts to get warm and sunny. Maybe.

Listening to
Hilary: Baby Lullabyes and whatever is on the radio to and from work. I haven’t discovered any new music in a long time. It would be great to start listening to something new again.

Brian: This changes frequently but the latest is: Wizard Smoke, Dax Riggs, Crowbar, Pink Floyd, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club.

Surfing
Brian: Beer Forums, Lifehacker, Gizmodo.

Hilary: I follow all kinds of mom-blogs now including Babble, Early Mama, and Design Mom. Also, Young House Love is a favorite. When I’m not reading those blogs, I’m getting inspired on Pinterest, shopping on Amazon, getting updates on facebook, or researching some new baby or crafty thing (most recently, I spent a lot of time researching photo book sites).

Doing in my spare time
Hilary: Usually, I’m sleeping, or taking and editing photos. I spend a lot of time discovering new methods of processing in Lightroom and playing with photos.

Brian: Being a Dad, Brewing beer, Yard work.

Planning
Brian: To ride more this summer and build a shed ramp.

Hilary: I’m planning a digital scrapbook for Jameson first year (have a lot of the “elements”, just have to start putting it together so I’m not doing it all at once in December!); also, I’m planning a picture frame wall in the entryway or up the stairs and have been collecting frames for that purpose; and I am going to make an Easter basket for Jameson for next year. Oh, and I’m also thinking about doing some sewing too like a table runner or pants for Jameson.

Dreaming
Hilary: I am dreaming of what our basement will look like all finished and what our yard will look like a few years down the road with some new perennial flowers. But that’s all dreams, I haven’t done any real planning yet for those.

Brian: Don’t remember.
