Ever been tagged in a “What I’m Doing Now” post? I have once. But today I’m tagging myself in one here. I haven’t shared much personal stuff on O&P in a minute, so I thought it was appropriate. I also am gearing back up to bring you some more stories about people besides yours truly, which I’m really, really excited about. As y’all know, O&P changes along with my interests, and I love, love, love learning about new things, trying out new hobbies, and sharing things that tickle my fancy in this space.
So, here is #whatimdoingnow, in no particular order:
1) Baby loving
My niece Elah is just the sweetest, cutest baby on the block, and none of us can get enough of her. And check out that adorable newborn Easter dress!
We took her for her first #ladieswholunch outing in Thomasville at Jonah’s Fish n Grits last week, which was an awesome break from a long work week.
2) A little thrifting
I haven’t done much thrift shopping as of late, but I did make a quick pit stop into Kaleidoscope last week and scored these bee needlepoint smoking slippers (that fit perfectly!) for $20 bucks. I almost can’t wait for fall to wear them. Almost.
I mentioned this before, but I’m just so grateful to have finally found a form of exercise I really identify with and love. It’s made such a drastic difference in my body, as well as in my mental and emotional health. I also want to give a shoutout to my awesome yoga instructor and owner at Lotus Yoga & Holistic Wellness, Lindsey. I’ll be sharing more about her as she opens her new studio, but until then you can find her current class schedule here. She’s helped me reach yoga goals that I never, ever would have thought I could do when I started back in January.
And speaking of yoga… I’d like to be
4) stand up paddleboarding.
I learned how to yolo/sup/stand up paddleboard last weekend at the beach with some gal pals. It is SO MUCH FUN. After seeing it on Instagram, I decided to also try some SUP yoga… Talk about a core workout! I promptly began saving my pennies for my own paddleboard.
5) seeing the Avett Brothers
A couple of weekends ago, we were lucky enough to go see the Avett Brothers in concert in Tallahassee at Cascade Park. They put on a great show and we had a blast.
Have I mentioned that Wheat broke his neck as well? Yes, this freak accident happened on Easter weekend. Boys and girls: never carry heavy, wrought iron chairs over your head… especially whilst walking on slippery, wet decks. He has a slight compression fracture in his C5 vertebrae,and we’re hoping he’ll be out of that awful neck brace very soon!
6) Maiden South
We participated in the downtown Bainbridge Art & Wine Walk last weekend and it was so much fun! We love having Mills Brock’s photography in the shop. Come by and see if it you didn’t make it in last weekend! We’ll actually be closed this Thursday night, but we’ll be open Friday and Saturday!
7) Spring Beekeeping
It’s spring, and our sweet bee hive has swarmed no less than four times and is still kicking. With all the rain, we haven’t been able to check our two backyard hives in a couple of weeks, which we thought would be a real problem. But the sun came out yesterday and we got in both hives, and they’re both doing great. No queen cells really to speak of, and we met the new Queen Bee in said swarming hive. Meet Beeatrice!
8) Hitting Pause
Trying to make a conscious effort to hit the pause button and enjoy pretty little moments like this view of a sunset and some Lady Banks roses a couple Fridays ago at the Bainbridge Country Club.
Happy Hump Day, y’all!!
