currently... two days by the coast

The deal: Use our themes or use your own - just let us know what is 'currently' going on with you. Be sure to stop by and say hello to the other bloggers linking up - especially to my amazing co-host Randalin of Kale & Beans.

This week's themes: 
trying, eating, wearing, going, making

Oof, I am Trying to write this Currently post but I'm pretty distracted right this second by a beachfront view from our balcony, a box of Triscuits, and I AM IN MY OWN BIG WHITE FLUFFY BED AT 8AM ON A WEEKDAY. I'm spending a couple of lady days with my best friend and we are just talking our lives away, eating all the things, and enjoying the blissed out peace. This should restore my soul for quite a while and all the direct sunlight should kick my vitamin D deficiency's ass. I'm hoping to head home tomorrow rested, with a full belly, full heart, and probably a sunburn. I will succeed at all of these goals. So many Triscuits.

Back at the homestead, we have started Eating summer dinners. This is my favorite time of year. I feel like in summer you can just have bread, cheese, fruit, salad, or hot dogs or something and call it a dinner. We eat on blankets in the backyard. It's not fancy but it FEELS so great to just eat light and simple and let the kids run around being crazies.

I am ready to be Wearing summer clothes but I am not *ready* to be wearing summer clothes. I want to go shopping and Buffalo Exchange is calling my name pretty hard. I also think I'm going to take a ride on the Birkenstock train this year (it only comes around once every 15 years or so). It's so hard spending any actual money on summer clothes because I can't (or at least choose not to) wear casual weekendy clothes to work but those are my favorites. Oh well. These are not actual problems I'm just rambling.

Otto is Going to test for this orange headband in taekwondo tonight! I hate that I'm missing it but I can't wait to high five that kid. He works so hard and has become so much more coordinated and strong (pushups for days) since he started last fall.

Loretta has been Making us all smile lately with her extreme princess-ing. Layer after layer of princess jammies, dress up clothes, tutus, and magic wands. She zaps us with her Frozen powers (we freeze) and Pink powers (we have to pretend to fly). We told her that she would get to meet real princesses at Disneyland this summer and let me tell you... she's pretty excited. We all are. It's gonna be magic.

That was this week & here are next week's theme's:
bringing, running, listening, creating, buying
