Currently {vol.14}

Currently {Vol. 14}

 I have been joining up with the always inspring 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. I am enjoying linking up each week with her Currently series!

Thinking about:  What I am going to do with the rest of my strawberries. I bought strawberries this weekend at the local strawberry patch. Saturday night, I made strawberry rhubarb crisp from the "what I'm craving" post from last week's currently!   Tonight, we brought some of them in a fruit salad to a friends house for a BBQ. Tomorrow, I think I will make homemade fruit roll ups and freeze some.

I am also thinking about what I am going to do with my hair for my cousin's wedding this weekend in Milwaukee. One of my best friends lives in Milwaukee *BONUS*, so she is going to do my hair...because I am not very talented in the hair category! ha  I am thinking a low, loose updo of some sort, as you can see below.

Reading: Not much lately besides my pile of magazines. I am hoping to bring my pile of magazines in the car this weekend and get caught up!

Watching: A little bit of soccer. "Highlights, more like it"

Listening to: The news, Undercover Boss and sports back & forth on the TV in the living room. My husband enjoys changing the TV channels! haha

Excited about:  My 1st Vox Box from Influenster! yay! #surfsupvoxbox   I can't wait to try all of my new goodies!

Super excited about our FIRST tent!! We just ordered our first tent from Cabela's this week! We can't wait to take our kids on their first TENT camping trips this summer. I grew up tent camping and have the best memories.

Thankful for: My usual...I know I say almost the same thing every week. But I am so incredibly blessed to have such a wonderful husband & children. Yet again, we had a great weekend together. 

Friday evening, we went out with friends to Vino in the Valley which is a vineyard with an outdoor restaurant. We enjoyed a delicious dinner, wine and laughing with friends until dark!
Saturday morning, the kids & I headed to Menomonie, WI to pick up delicious & juicy strawberries. After that, we went to Legacy chocolates to try their truffles for the 1st time. YUM!

Our main purpose of our trip to Menomonie was going to the Wakanda Waterpark! We had a blast! It was a gorgeous sunny day!

We ended our Saturday evening with S'mores around the campfire. After we put the kids to bed, my husband  & I continued to enjoy the fire. What a perfect evening!

Sunday, I was so blessed to spend the afternoon & evening with my amazing cousin that lives in Alaska. I don't see her very often, but when we do...I feel as though we have never been apart. I miss her all the time & wish tickets to Anchorage weren't so expensive!

  1. Strawberries are my FAVORITE fruit. It's one of the only ways I can eat my oatmeal without any sugar in the morning.

    1. I never thought of putting strawberries on oatmeal. I will have to try it! We love making strawberry fruit roll ups with ours!

  2. Those strawberries look divine! I wish we could do some strawberry picking down here. My favorite dessert is homemade strawberry shortcake...yum! We took our boys on their first tent camping trip a few weeks ago. They loved it. I grew up camping and always loved it, so I hope to pass the fun on to our boys!

    1. Yum. I love strawberry shortcake too.
      FUN!! I am glad you are going on camping adventures too!

  3. Those strawberries look amazing!

  4. What a great quote! It sounds like you've already been making a lot of great summer memories. Have fun with that tent, and enjoy the strawberry rhubarb crisp (yum!).

    1. Thank you! Yes, I love making fun summer memories!

  5. That tent looks awesome!! We camped for our first time last year, and now we need to plan another few trips for this summer.

    The vineyard looks amazing, too. We love to stop at vineyards and wine tasting rooms.

    1. fun!! I love camping memories.
      We love having so many vineyards close by!
