Currently

Today I'm linking up with Randalin of Harvesting Kale &  Lindsey at Ot & Et. to talk about what I'm currently up to.  Join in and use their themes or come up with some of your own!

Currently I'm...

...wishing it were summer for oh so many reasons; warm weather, no work, spending each day with my little lady, exploring our new town, decorating our new home, finding time to sew and make.  Sixteen days and counting.  

...celebrating selling our house, again.  Yep, if you remember we sold our house a while back before it even went on the market.  Fifteen days before we were to close, our buyers backed out.  something had happened with their financing and they decided to back out of the whole deal.  That was two weeks ago.  Last Sunday we accepted a new offer and will be closing the same day we close on our home purchase.  We are still a little apprehensive about popping the cork just yet, but circumstances are different this time, and we shouldn't have to worry.  I am also celebrating accepting a new position.  This new job will put me 20 minutes from our new home (instead of one hour like my current job) and will give me the fresh start that I've been wanting.  I am so excited!! (OK, now pop the cork)

...wasting time on Pinterest looking for inspiration for Peanut's birthday party.  It's hard to believe that she will be three in a little over three weeks.  Gah!  She has told me repeatedly that she wants an octopus birthday cake (just like the one she insisted I make for her dad in March), so I was able to get her to agree to an under-the-sea / Ariel themed party.  (my pinspiration so far)

...wearing my glasses.  Yuck!  I hate wearing glasses.  I just feel so blah and tired when I wear them.  Plus, I can't wear sunglasses when I'm driving which makes me crazy.  I have a lasik consultation in a couple of weeks and so I have to go contact-free until then.  I'm hoping it will be worth it and they tell me they can do the surgery.  I would LOVE to wake up in the morning and see the alarm clock without first fumbling around for my glasses.

What are you currently up to?

  1. I get ridiculously into planning out a birthday party for Louis. Like...it's a problem. His birthday is in August and I'm already starting to mentally work it out in my head. :)

    1. Oh my goodness Katy, me too! I am so behind this year with the house sale and move. I'm kind of freaking out now. Totally unnecessary, but, just how this mama is.
