today i am joining in with This Amazing Day for her weekly "currently" post... currently i am...
Wishing for a few more hours in the day, days in the week, etc. because it's pretty overwhelming --> life. there are so many things i'd like to do every day that i never get around to. from crafts and adventures with the kids to doing the stupid laundry. it's hard to explain how time just seems to be slipping through my fingers lately, the kids growing like weeds, and me feeling a little outside of it all. hopefully settling into our new place will make a difference. oh, and i am also wishing that i stumble upon a great full-length mirror, bookcases, a dresser, and other wonderful things for the new house in a free pile. i would pay you back, universe! and of course wishing the move goes well.
Reading chapter books every night with Otto. so far in the past few weeks we have read seven chapter books and for his age (3 1/2) we have found the Flat Stanley series to be the most age appropriate and just totally charming and silly and full of adventures. for my personal reading i am trudging through book 3 of the Fifty Shades series and am ready to bludgeon myself to death with a leather riding crop. somehow this summer i found myself reading first the Hunger Games series and now this. as much as i like being "in the know" with what everyone's talking about book-wise, i have to say i'm ready to smash my face into cement at this point and will be returning to my George Washington biographies and other dork lit as soon as i'm done with Fifty Shades Freed.
Cooking home made ice cream, blackberry and blueberry sauces, and planning on making this tortellini soup this week.
Anticipating decorating our new home, which will really be a "home" as we'll be there most likely for the duration of our time here in Eugene. probably 4 or 5 years. i am loving so much of what i see style-wise on Pinterest lately (modern, minimal, pretty) and just hope i am able to put together a home that suits us in style as well as utility. i am looking forward to a lot of thrift trips to get us there!
