Reading several books tbh but the one I’m picking up most frequently these days is My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows. It’s sort of historical fiction and sort of young adult fantasy and totally awesome. The writing is fresh and snappy and I love basically everyone in the book. Hysterical and thoroughly enjoyable. Featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant … Continue reading Currently (08.16.16).

What’s saving my life right now.

Anne @ Modern Mrs. Darcy was writing about the things that save her life during the busy, trying, stressful times of life – I don’t know about you, but for me that kinda describes all the days right now. As I continue to work extra hours at work, cart children to karate lessons, push them through homework and struggle to keep up with all of … Continue reading What’s saving my life right now.

Obsessing over: the final stages of Christmas shopping which will be followed shortly by Christmas present wrapping and stocking stuffing… Also working on Christmas crafts with the kids and a couple of Advent activities. Feeling: overwhelmed a bit by a busy couple of weeks ahead of me not even just including the holidays but some more worky / important type stuff, too. Nothing terribly interesting … Continue reading Currently: December 4, 2012

Obsessing over: my very, very full refrigerator and all of the leftovers we have to get through. After all of my worry over us not being healthy enough to get through Thanksgiving, we ended up being fully recovered by Turkey Day and spent Thursday and most of the weekend cooking away. In addition to our Thanksgiving feast we also made spoonbread, turkey soup, French Toast … Continue reading Currently: November 26th

Obsessing over: how maybe in a couple of days my Facebook feed will not be flooded with political posts. I have a lot of passionately political friends, but for the past couple of days it’s been verging on ridiculous. Hopefully maybe tomorrow we will all find something else to talk about. That said, Congratulations Mr. President on another 4 years. My daughter stood outside in … Continue reading Currently: November 7th

Obsessing over: how adorable and amazing the kids’ Halloween costumes came out. In spite of the fact that I’m not sure anyone is going to understand what they are dressed up as, we’re all pretty excited. We’ve been prepping MM on how to respond to inquiries about his costume. “Who are you dressed up as?” “I’m the Doctor.” “Doctor who?” “Exactly. Bow ties are cool.” … Continue reading Currently: October 29th

Outside my window: there is a glorious assortment of colors with all of the leaves in full autumn attire. It’s been pretty chilly lately for my likings, but with a few days tripping up into the 60’s just to keep me placated I imagine. It will be much colder before long, I’m sure… Obsessing over: figuring out the logistics for our upcoming sabbatical vacation in a couple … Continue reading Currently: October 16th

Obsessing over: my new favorite pair of jeans! I just got these Westport jeans at Dressbarn on Friday and I’m loving them. Their short size fits me perfectly, the waist band is snug and doesn’t stretch out over the course of the day so the perfect fit stays a perfect fit all day!! No gaps, no weird sagging. Just cute jeans for a price I can … Continue reading Currently ~ October 9th
