Currently {vol.20}

Currently {Vol. 20}

 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 can't believe I am writing my 20th Currently post tonight! Where have the last 20 weeks gone?  Here's to 20 more!

Thinking about: The End of Summer Backyard BBQ that I am planning for our friends in our community. I am soo excited! I designed the invites today, I am mailing them out tomorrow! Now, the rest of the planning commences... decor, food, yard games, tables, music, cleaning...the list goes on!! I can't wait! I love planning events! YAY!!!

Loving these fun ideas from Pinterest... Now to start PINNING!! The ideas just don't stop!

Reading: Through my piles of paperwork that I have been neglecting on my counters over the last few months. I am about 3/4 the way done. I am getting there! It will feel so good to have these piles GONE!

Watching: My parents interact with my kids tonight. The kids were soooo excited that Grandma & Grandpa were able to come visit for a couple hours before bed. We are blessed to have the grandparents only 30 minutes away!  I grew up spending a lot of time with my grandparents & am so thankful my children can spend time with theirs.

Listening to: The news in the background from the living room & the dishwasher running. This is our quiet time of the evening.
Excited about: Our weekend ahead! Friday evening, we are taking the kids to the County fair near our home for rides, visiting the animals & eating delicious fair food. {in moderation of course}

Thankful for: These two beautiful children. They are my world.

Some days they drive me ABSOLUTELY nuts to the point that I want to pull my hair out. But some days, I realize how blessed I am to be given these two beautiful healthy kids. 
Why is it that when something bad happens, we want to squeeze our loved ones a little closer & think about our own. Why can't we realize how lucky we are on a daily basis? I am one of those people as well. I need to remember more how lucky I am. 

The photo above was from our vacation to the Boundary Waters. I loved showing them somewhere they had never been, tried something they had never tried & spent time with them with no signs of IPhone, IPad or computer. That time was precious & won't be forgotten.

Choose Happy


  1. Oh my gosh! I love the 6-pack condiment holder -- what a cute idea!

    More importantly, I can seriously relate to that deep feeling of conflict where your kids make you want to scream one minute, and the next you want to hug them close and never let them go! Gosh I love my two -- and boy do they drive me insane (especially at about 5pm)!

    1. Thank you Ashley!! Thanks for stopping by :)
      Have a great week!
