currently...

i think we've all seen these posts running around on our favorite bloggers' pages.

i've been wanting to do a currently post for awhile...mostly because i like reading them, so maybe you'll be into it too? sure.

currently | the state of our great room looks like this. i pick it up and in less than 30 minutes it's back. i've resorted to picking it up only once a day at the end of the day. my turtle is a tasmanian devil and prefers her toys where she can seem them...nicely displayed across our floor.

watching | my little sawyer-muff sleep and flail her arms around. violent sleeper, that one. violent sleeper, but great sleeper...so far. i think that if i didn't wake her up to nurse her twice a night she'd be one of those babies that slept through the night from birth. no joke.

drinking | i just poured myself a glorious cup of coffee from starbucks christmas blend. it's dreamy. you should try it. i used to drink my coffee black because i liked the idea of saving oodles of calories, but now i'm all about whole milk and i dump a heavy portion in every morning.

forgetting | that i still have yet to buy one single christmas present. it's just that every night when both girls are asleep i can usually keep my eyes open for exactly 2.8 seconds and then i'm asleep. the other night i fell asleep at 7 pm-ish on kaye. she started out cuddled up on me and i woke up with my head on her lap. she was petting my face. quite the little nurturer.

excited for | corn harvest to be over. as much as it drives my farmer crazy to not be busy out of his mind...i love love love when his schedule opens up and i can make him go to costco with us...or we can plan some sort of getaway. just a few more days...

kaye will probably be sad because then she won't get to ride in the combine with her farmer or take walks through the fields with grandpa.

loving | that i'm finally feeling better. no joke...thanksgiving night i became violently ill and spent large portions of the night in the bathroom. too much info? too bad. the good news is that as of yesterday i'm on the mend and finally feel mostly back to normal. thank god.

looking forward to | we're headed to scottsdale, AZ in february to attend a family member's wedding and i think i talked my farmer into making it a mini vay-cay. i remember reading a post from hello happiness about their stay at the phoenician and all the glorious places they went...so why not go that route? we'll have to drag the muffy-muff along since she'll only be four months old, but hopefully she'll still be really chill and just tag along. one can hope.


what are you all up to currently?

  1. Your living room looks just like mine - covered in toys. And I quickly learned that there was no point in cleaning it up multiple times a day, so I do it just once a day now too. Glad you are feeling better, mama. There is nothing worse than being sick with kids - ugh. And you totally deserve a vacation. Hoping you and the farmer can visit that gorgeous hotel. Right now, that pool is looking hella good.

  2. My living room is a constant clutter of toys, socks, shoes and snack trash.........it's hard to make myself just clean it once a day...I'm learning to be less OCD. ;-)

  6. Hey I used to live in Scottsdale!! Now we're in Tucson. If you can, you should come back during the summer (it's a zillion degrees) but all the hotels have huge discounts--perfect for a mini vacay!

  7. oh my gosh! that resort looks amazing! I don't know what I'm gonna do when we have kids and I'm actually expected to pick up the living room more than once a week. and the story about Kaye stroking your face makes me giggle!

  8. yes to vacations! That looks amazing, I need a vacation. Yay for getting a good sleeper! :) and your room and my family room looks pretty much the same...we made one of Baby Fox's chore to clean up the family room before bed, so far he's really into it, anything for a sticker, please make that last!

  9. Girlfriend, it looks like baby exploded all over my house and the baby isn't even here yet! HA! I'm just going with it.

  10. Christmas blend is my fav! It's just so flavorful and glorious. The Phoenician is amazing! We've stayed there a few times and it never disapoints. We head to Scottsdale a few times a year and I love it more each time. The weather is perfect in February! You'll have the best time! Oh, and our playroom looks worse than that 99% of the time! ha!

  11. I cannot believe you lucked out with such a good sleeper! Henry JUST slept through the night last night, for the very first time ever. He's nearly 7 months old. Yeahhhhhhhh.... Also, ditto on the living room situation!

  19. It's tough keeping a clean house with Little Ones. I have to occasionally invite guests over so I'm forced to pick it up!
