Life | Right Now {2nd Edition}

Hey y'all! I've SO missed chatting with you all these last few weeks as I've had to use my time on other things! I have so many ideas for posts and tutorials and topics to cover, but I'm having to be patient as I work on Fresh Apparel instead! (Not that it's a bad trade... ;) 

{Selfie taken at LC King Manufacturing a few weeks ago to pick up my skirt sample!}
Thought I'd pop in for one of these fun "...ing" posts today. I did this back at the end of January and figured now would be a good time for another one! :)

Right now I am....

Seeing... my brother still in his PJ's at noon.
Hearing... 80's pop radio still playing from our morning kitchen clean up/dance session.
Smelling... peas cooking in bacon grease.
Tasting... peanut butter I licked off my fingers from scraping the jar clean.
Needing... to get the Kickstarter video done. And blogging. And bedroom cleaning. 
Wanting... to have boundless energy 
Regretting... slamming on the breaks while driving earlier. 50# of tapioca flour rammed into the back of my seat, launching fine powder all over the car.
Feeling... the effects of sleeping in.
Wishing... business wasn't so complicated.
Thinking... about all I would do with Fresh Modesty if I had the time.
Laughing... at the silly senior pictures my sisters took.
Recovering... from an insane schedule. I don't know if "recovering" is the right word since I'm still in the throes of it... ;)
Believing... that the Lord will give clear direction.
Anticipating... things are only going to get crazier.
Dreaming... about a month from now.
Praying... for endurance.
Reading... Entreleadership.

Singing... "Friday" by Rebecca Black to the tune of "Baby" by Justin Beiber. Yeah.
Wearing... super long jeans (was wearing heels), a blue and orange print babydoll top, and no make-up. 
Preparing... for launching Fresh Apparel's Kickstarter!
Remembering... how awful I felt a few weeks ago due to Lymes and thanking the Lord that's not affecting me at the moment.
Trying... to get this done so I can get the Kickstarter video done!
Questioning... how in the world I am on the verge of starting my own clothing line.
Fearing... that I'll waste precious moments.
Loving... my incredible friends.
Googling... *looks at history*... quotes on sleep.
Choosing... to let some things go.
Working... on everything at once.
Emailing... nobody. I'm so behind.
Sewing... velcro to a 10' banner.
Texting... a friend about Fresh Apparel getting 700 likes in the first day.
Cracking... my neck every 6 minutes.
Considering... blogging about the things I'm hoping to order from Forever21.
Turning... the doorknob for the kids because it's broken and hard to open.
Biting... my nails.
Reducing... the quantity of clothes I have.
Longing... to get a sunburn.
Suffering... from little drive, little sleep, and little time.
Recognizing... that I love biting off more than I can chew.
Checking... my email for affiliate confirmations.
Organizing... my denim samples.
Practicing... smiling for the camera.
Reckoning... I should make another pot of coffee.
and
Smiling... about how blessed I am by all of you. Really. 


I hope y'all have an awesome Thursday! What are your answers to some of these? Y'all have been so kind to comment on the new blog look! It's still under construction, but I'm liking how much cleaner it feels. :) Blessings!

  7. I'm sooo excited about Fresh Apparel!!!!!

    Olivia, I see you have The Healthy Farm Girl as a sponsor. Do you know if they sell facial cleaning wipes? I used Burt's Bees wipes and they made me break out. Do you or anyone else have any suggestions for different brands?
    Thanks, Moriah

  11. Oh, so enjoyed this post, Olivia!

    Just some random comments that came to mind while reading thru the "...ing's" :

    • the selfie is too adorbs
    • the peanut butter thing reminded me... I've tried this new PB that's natural {GMO free, gluten free, etc.} that is wonderful! I know you're into natural foods, so just thought I'd mention that. ;)
    • oh yes. owning one's own business is SO complicated. oy. ugh. grrr.
    • I too have been having to believe that the Lord will give clear direction. Trust + faith are choices, most assuredly.
    • looking forward to the kick starter. :)
    • I really admire you for making this leap of faith. starting a clothing line seems like it would be daunting, at least at first, and I can't wait to see where the Lord takes you in this!
    • 700 likes in the first day? wow. that's wonderful!
    • woild love to hear/see/read about how you're reducing your clothes amount. when you have the time. ;)

    :-)
