Currently I Am …(Here are Some Fun New-To-Me Things in the Iowa City Area!)

Currently is one of my favorite ways to catch up with people and to find new-to-me things around the Iowa City area. Here are the things I’m currently doing. Pick a category (or create your own) and let us know what you’re doing!


Currently I am . . .

Dreaming about . . .

Vacationing to literally anywhere, but especially the Redwood Forest and Porcupine Hills.

Wearing . . .

Cardigans with everything (this is my fav).

Baking . . .

This double chocolate banana bread (but I cut the total amount of sugar in half, if the bananas are ripe enough, you totally can’t tell!). Also: I like to think of this as a banana bread level up. March pandemic banana bread 1.0 was this. March pandemic bread 2.0 adds lots of chocolate!

Binging . . .

Last Chance U and Kim’s Convenience on Netflix and Real World Homecoming and Survivor on Paramount+.

Pre-Ordering . . .

The book, Please Don’t Sit on My Bed in Your Outside Clothes

Ordering . . .

Half Flavor Iced Chai with Oak Milk from Java House. And ordering ANY.THING. from Deluxe Bakery. (Did you know Deluxe offers online ordering now?)


Becoming . . .

A Plant Lady, thanks to Willow and Stock and the Shop Iowa City.

Having . . .

At-Home Movie Nights with Legit Movie Popcorn thanks to FilmScene.

Walking . . .

Through Hickory Hill Park on the regular.

Impatiently Waiting . . .

For outdoor yoga in Iowa City! (In the meantime, I’m still doing yoga virtually).

Eating . . .

La Regia almost weekly.

Suffering . . .

From seasonal allergies. How can spring be so beautiful and so cruel all at the same time?!

Hiding . . .

All the dark chocolate from my kids and husband.

Getting Veggies . . .

From two CSA’s this spring summer (You can join a local CSA, too!).

Reading . . .

Ugh, nothing right now. Please help! What are you currently reading?
