Currently Spring Edition 2021

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a bit of what’s CURRENTLY going on so I decided a spring edition was in order…

 Making:  To-do list after to-do list.  I have to be SUPER productive when Britt is at preschool to make sure I get everything accomplished during the day.  Know what keeps me on track?  Those LISTS!

Wanting:  Some magical unicorn of a tween store to appear.  Where do you guys shop for your tween?  Ebby Lee is in that in-between stage of not really wanting to shop in the girl department but not quite fitting into a junior’s department either.  I’m on the hunt for a great tween spot.  Any ideas?

Cooking:  Hmmmm…we’ve had Shay’s Beef and Rice Skillet Supper and baked chicken so far this week.  Tonight salmon bowls are on the menu.  I’m just baking salmon, cooking rice, and we’re topping with our faves…carrots, cucumbers, onion, avocado.  I’ll add sriracha to mine and I’d put money on the kids topping theirs with something refined like ketchup.  😉 

Drinking:  It’s almost La Croix season in my house!  That time of year when I switch from too much coffee to too many carbonated waters.  What’s your favorite brand of flavored water…La Croix, Waterloo, ???  I need to branch out.

Eating:  EASTER CANDY!!  Why do I ALWAYS fall for the combination of chocolate and peanut butter?  ALWAYS!  I have no willpower when that combo is in front of me.  I also have no willpower for chips and salsa.

Reading:  I’m reading Share Your Stuff I’ll Go First.  And I’m still working my way through reading my Bible with The Bible Recap.  I’m a few days behind but still going strong!

Looking:  For brightly colored swimsuits for Britt this year.  I saw something online about how important it is to put your new swimmers in bright, neon colors versus blues that blend in with the water.  And it STUCK with me!  Why have I never thought about this before?  So now I’m on a mission to have my girl in bright colors all summer long!

Playing:  LOTS of spring sports.  I know I can sound like a broken record when I mention these but our weekends are spent watching our kids enjoy the activities they love.  

Wasting:  Lettuce.  Period.

Buying:  The powder Tide because a girlfriend just told me if I scrub some on my kids’ shoes it’ll have them looking brand new in no time.  Do you guys do this?

Loving:  That Tab is home more than he used to be.  With kids’ practices and after school activities it is so nice to have help with the afternoon shuffle.  LOVE the fact he gets to be close and work from home most days.

Hoping:  Ebby Lee and Nixon don’t play at the EXACT same time this Saturday.  I mean-what are the odds, right?  Except it happens all the time.  I’d love to be able to watch both but it typically doesn’t work out that way.

Marveling:  At the fact I forgot about an entire big bag of Easter eggs on Easter morning hidden in the back of my car.  What am I gonna do with those for an entire year?

Needing:  To talk to the person in charge of deciding these big championship sports games would be so late on a Monday night.  We didn’t watch a single minute of the March Madness championship game because it started at 8:20 p.m.  And if you live on the east coast, it started at 9:20!  Who decided this?  Couldn’t we bump that to a nice comfortable Saturday afternoon game?

Smelling:  The Magic Candle scent of The Contemporary {where Shay and I just stayed in February}.

Praying:  For a mama friend who has cancer.  Her name is Katy and my goodness-if you met her, your heart would be changed.  Please join me in praying for her.

Noticing:  I work THE BEST when there’s a candle burning, my heater is going at my feet, and a cup of water at my side.  

Knowing:  I need to go flip the laundry and I’m hopeful the dryer is empty!

Thinking:  About this haircut Tab let Bowen talk him into at the salon.  It’s a bit mohawk-ish meets mullet and it’s horrible.  WHAT was he thinking?!

Opening:  I heard this outdoor cleaner is not only good for roofs but for patio cushions so I ordered.  It’s on our list to tackle our back yard and get it in tip top condition for this nice weather.

Giggling:  About Bowen at dinner…I’m not sure what it is but in my older age give me ALL THE SPICE.  Tobasco, Chalula, or Sriracha-yes, yes, yes!  I added Tobasco to something and Bowen asked for some.  I gave him a couple dashes.  He took a bite, made the funniest, shocked face and it immediately all came back out.  {We’re working on the table manners.}  But is this happening to anyone else?  Are my taste buds aging and getting bland so I can handle more heat?  What’s happening?

Feeling:  Extra thankful for all of you as I finish this post.  Thank YOU for reading today!
