One of the highlights of getting to #ExperienceBuick in Detroit last weekend was meeting Andi Fisher of Misadventures with Andi. She is an awesome person and I’m so excited about spending time with her over the next year.

Andi does a great monthly post called “Currently,” which I just discovered because I have a bunch of assignments due and I am currently procrastinating.

Because I totally fell in love with this idea and it gave me a glimpse into Andi’s life — and it’s a quick and easy post — I decided to try one myself. I may even do this monthly.

I’d love to know what you’re currently doing, too.

My favorite sushi roll and one of the reasons I’m back at Jenny Craig

Katana sushi roll


  1. Currently/I wish I were eating that sushi roll with you.

  2. I love these kinds of posts. And I totally get the eating dangerously. This past year has been a bit dangerous for me, as well.

  3. I love this! Currently does kind of keep you accountable. Currently I’m browsing blogs and then next I’m about to eat me breakfast. 🙂

  4. I love this post. Brief and amazing! You have incorporated the components of health in spirit, mind and body. Thank you!

  5. Currently is a great way to share. I too have started a new healthy journey!

  6. Love reading your “currently”! Currently, I am working on my new book!

  7. I love this idea! I am currently SWAMPED and have decided that January is the new busiest month of the year because everyone is seeming to book things I need to go to because they figured that nothing happens in January and now I’m over-booked! Fun times for sure!

  8. Gosh I need to start watching Downton Abbey. It seems really intense with all of the gossip and intrigue.

  9. My Hubs would love that sushi roll. We have certain towns we travel to just so he can have his sushi fix.

  10. Is that sushi roll from Jenny Craig? I MUST have it. I am currently drinking my coffee, debating what to make for lunch.

  11. The sushi roll looks yummy! and you look like you are having fun, Go Girl!!!

  12. I love these answers 🙂 I’m loving Downton Abbey right along with you!

  13. I am so glad you found a true friend in a blogger. I realized this last year as well after going to a conference.

  14. What a great way to get to know someone. I love this idea… so fun. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  15. That sushi roll looks wonderful! I would love to be eating that right now!

  16. Sounds like a good recap. Short but sweet.

  17. I’m not big on sushi, but that does look appealing.

  18. Helene Cohen Bludman says:

    Great idea for a monthly post! The sushi is beckoning me … OMG does that look good.

  19. I got super excited because I thought that sushi roll WAS on Jenny Craig – for just a quick sec. Mah, mah, maaahhh…

  20. Currently I am in Cozumel and I am a passionate diver and photographer. Did I mention I’m diving?

  21. i wanted to see the golden globes! i heard tina fey and amy poehler killed i. 🙂

  22. YOU were one of my favorite things about weekend as well. I think if my hubby hears “Lois” one more time he is going to shoot me. I had to have sushi after our Midwest meals as well! I am back to my regime, I will do lots of sushi and try to stay away from rolls with tempura – which I love! I totally procrastinate too!

  23. That sushi photo is dangerous. It makes me hungry just looking at it!

  24. Currently I am planning a trip to Disney at the end of this month. i am also currently trying to make my budget fit a trip to Cali in March during spring Break. Also currently enjoying a cup of Chai tea.

  25. Cute idea! I am currently watching Back to the Future – one of my favorites.

  26. Yoou just have a good time. That sushi roll is great looking.

  27. Currently, I’m planning our vacation – and that beach looks nice!

  28. Good luck with Jenny Craig, I would love to give their food a try.

  29. Great post. I’ve heard so many good things about Downton Abbey. I need to check it out!

  30. I love sushi with a passion, that roll looks super good; glad that you’re getting back on the straight and narrow!

  31. great idea! currently I’m spending time with my daughter who is down for a visit – loving the mother and daughter bonding time!

  32. Currently I am researching new fitness classes. Some of my favorites got cancelled at my gym this year and I would like to find some new ones to love now.

  33. Oh wow I didn’t even noticed that was a sushi roll – makes me want to give it a try haha!

  34. Sushi seems to be so popular, I am such a chicken I guess I want to try it but I am not a big fish fan. Looks good!

  35. Great idea. These posts are so fun! Not a sushi fan, never tried it but I am not a seafood gal. Looks good though!

  36. Oooo – I love this! I may steal the idea, too. And yes, that roll does look “bomb”. Yum.

  37. What a great idea! I’m currently doing Saturday yoga.

  38. “The Year of Eating Dangerously” — now that is a book title! I really like this post too and may have to join you! And how is it that we haven’t had sushi together?

  39. I’m such a sucker for the awards season too!

  40. I love the Currently series. I see some bloggers do it once a week and there are those who do it once a month. Either way, its fun to see whats going on in the bloggers world.

  41. I love that idea and like Kristen, I love all your answers. I’m going to work on my own list and I look forward to seeing another of yours.

  42. I wanna be planning more trips! I always have a travel bug going on 😛

  43. Oh the food looks awesome! I bet it was really tasty! I have yet to start watching Downtown Abby

  44. This is a fantastic idea for a regular post feature. I think I may do something similar… but not call it Currently… and use a few different questions.

    “All the Light We Cannot See” is next on my list. I’ve heard wonderful things about it.

  45. Currently: I am in San Francisco showing my ‘nephew’ around.

  46. Love this post, Lois! You might inspire me to do the same. Such a great way to get a fun glimpse into our favorite bloggers 🙂

  47. Fun post!! Currently – on a sugar high after a yummy birthday dinner! lol

  48. I’m currently watching sports with my husband while I work online. It has been a long and tiring week.

  49. What a great post – lovely way to get to know other bloggers as well. I’ve not watched an award show in years how was it? x

  50. Currently, I am trying to finish up some work while watching the game.
