Currently {vol.8}

Currently {Vol. 8}

 I have recently started reading A Mama Collective and just love her blog. She has started a series called: Currently. This series is just a regular, every day post about what is going on in her world that day. So, I am joining in the fun with her Currently series!

Thinking about: Mother's Day.  I am so lucky & blessed to have 2 beautiful children. We had an amazing Mother's Day and were able to spend time with our mother's and our children on Mother's Day. But, many of us forget to remember all of the women that have lost children or are still trying to have children. This day may be hard for so many around us without even realizing. 
Today, I want to say a prayer for all of those around me that have been trying for so long to have a baby and haven't been successful. Praying that God will soon bless them with a child whether their own or through adoption. 
 Also, saying a prayer for a fellow blogger that lost her adorable little boy to a tragic accident. 
Cherish each & every day, for tomorrow is not promised.

Reading: A whole lot of nothing... well besides paperwork at work, my son's homework/teacher's notes or blogs that I follow. I just haven't gotten back to my books lately.

Listening to: duh duh guessed it...the usual ESPN in the background. My hubby loves ESPN in the evenings to unwind, so that is usually what I hear in the background.

Craving: Betty's Pies!  It is one of my favorite stops on the North Shore of Lake Superior. We have been going there since I was a very little girl. My dad talks about going there when he was a kid; when it was just a small stand on the side of the road. They make the BEST pies! We will be stopping by in the end of July before our camping trip to the Boundary Waters! Blackberry Peach Crunch is my FAVORITE!
Thankful for: My AMAZING Mother's Day, we had such a great day yesterday.
Breakfast at the Dish & Spoon Cafe with my family, explored Willow River State park, played at another playground in Hudson, had ice cream for lunch at Knoke's, had a family nap, grilled steaks for supper & went on a nice bike ride! I was exhausted by bed time! My kiddos bought me a gorgeous hanging basket for our front deck. Today, I feel so blessed!
Thankful for the sunshine this weekend, we needed it!
Thankful for the flowers blooming & green grass growing.
Thankful for loving parents & grandparents that are always there for us. 

Wishing: {Weekly Wish List for Sh*t I want to get done}
1. Make it to my goal of $1000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Walkathon, I am getting so close. Would you like to help me reach my goal? {CLICK HERE to donate}
2. Finish getting everything ready at work to drive to Chicago & set up a large show at McCormick Place. 
3. Workout at least 4 days this week. 
4. Organize my closet...It needs help!

My favorite Quote of the Day:
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you will look back and realize they were the BIG things.

    I am SO with you on needing to work out. I haven't in forever, and I know that I really need to! I like feeling strong, and right now I just feel so weak! I hate that.
