currently... seeds of spring

Currently is a weekly link-up that I happily co-host with the fabulous and amazing  Randalin ♥ of Harvesting Kale. We hope that you can participate by writing your own Currently post (using our themes or your own) and please join us by linking up.

psst. Randalin is taking a few weeks off from regularly scheduled programming in order to snuggle a brand new baby girl, Beatrix. While she's away, we have two new co-hosts for Currently.

This week our co-host is Colleen of Mommy Panda. She is straight up rad.

So! What have you been snapping, stopping, spending, starting, skipping this week? Over here, we have been...

Snapping pics of some pretty great moments. Loretta makes it impossible to exercise BUT... I mean hahahahahahahaha! Ok. Laughing > Exercise.

Stopping myself from going all apeshit crazy buying stuff on Instagram. For example, Nooks Footwear has been sorely tempting me to break my New Year's Resolution and buy Loretta a lifetime supply of slipper shoes and pinafore dresses. I mean look and then tell me it doesn't hurt to stop yourself. It kind of hurts right?

Give me all dem shoes!

Spending time planning out my garden. I'm reading The Essential Urban Farmer and intend to start composting by mid-March. I started a little notebook for gardening notes with a page for each variety of seed I'm planting so that I can look up pointers online, compile notes, and plan out the dates for seed starts and that kind of thing. I have heirloom variety seeds of each of these plants and am so excited to try my hand at growing a few varieties of tomato and then pumpkins, watermelon, cucumbers, sugar snap peas, and beets. I'm also thinking of doing a raised bed inside the kids' wooden sandbox and having them grow their own child's garden (herbs and carrots?). Wish me luck I have a black thumb but a heart of gold and am so excited to do a good job! 

Otto is Starting to freak me out with what a real actual boy, like a little GUY who does DUDE things, he is. He has been watching videos on YouTube of people explaining how to play the new Lego Movie video game and he is saving up his gift money and allowance to buy it. He tells poop jokes and gets irritated when Loretta won't leave him be to do his maze workbook (latest obsession) and he's taken to doing this "cool kid handshake" that goes, "up high, down low, cut the jelly, Fonzerelli." He says Fonzarelli like Fonzi did, like it's really funny. But also freaky. He is just growing up so fast, it's unreal.

 my beauty routine. Which is basically soap, lotion, and toothpaste. I can always tell when I'm in a funk-a-lunk when I can't bring myself to wash my face before bed and that's been the last few weeks. Not to go on and on about the fact that I pretty much get Seasonal Affective Disorder around this time every year but I basically just want to curl up in a sleeping bag and turn on power ballads and eat chocolate and cry. So, you know, I can't wait for the mother flubbing sun to come out and be Spring!

That was this week and here are next week's themes:
liking, thinking, planting, blooming, pinning
