Currently {vol.19}

Currently {Vol. 19}

 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!

I am a little behind this week! I just returned from vacation today.

Thinking about:  MOTIVATION. Where mine is & why I need to get it back. Have you been struggling with this? Because I am. I have not been working very hard at it over the last few months & am finally feeling it. I don't feel like myself fit wise & need to get back at it. Tomorrow, I am BACK on the train. It is just SO hard sometimes!

Reading: My pile of 15 magazines. Well I am done now, I just finished today. I brought them with on vacation, along with a few new books. I never did get the chance to start the books, but I will get there!

Watching: Bits & pieces of Deadliest Catch that is on in the living room. It is one of the reality shows that I don't mind watching that my husband watches.

Listening to: My children fight like cats & dogs today. They have been in very close proximity for the past 5 days and need to get back to daycare tomorrow! Agghhhh
Excited about: Girls night out for brick oven pizza tomorrow night. I haven't seen these high school girlfriends in a long time, tomorrow night is much needed!

I am also very excited for the Dirty Girl race this Saturday. It is such an awesome event to raise money for Breast Cancer! 

Thankful for: Our vacation together as a family of 4.  Although we had our moments & were eaten alive by black flies & mosquito's, we had a lot of fun together! It was also a good time to unplug with no cell phone service for a few days!

My favorite Quote of the Day: I love this quote, such a good reminder.

  1. Motivation. I have [some] motiviation, but I'm struggling to put the plan into action, aka wake up before the sun to get to it! Your vacation pics are lovely! We are going on vacation soon and I just.can't.wait!

    Enjoy your girl's night tonight :)

    1. Thank you Valerie!
      I also need to put the plan into action!!

      thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

  2. Your kiddos are so cute! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet sweet comment. Those are always so fun. Looks like we have a lot in common--or at least a lot I can relate with! Lack of motivation? Check. And the Deadliest Catch is the ONLY reality tv show I can stand. Man drama. Haha

    1. Thank you Jessie!!
      You are very welcome!!
      Thank you for stopping by :) Have a great week!

  3. Your vacation looks like it was a blast! I love that pic of your little ones in the canoe making fun memories! No cell service trips are always the best for family time. That quote is such a truth worth repeating. I tend to get caught up in planning what's next and not slowing down to enjoy what's right now. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. Thank you Megan! We did have a great time. I am still trying to catch up I think! haha

      Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful week!
