Currently {vol.21}

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!

Hello Friends! Happy Monday! Today's Currently post is #21 for me! 

Thinking about: Robin Williams. I am so sad to hear about his death tonight. He was such an amazing man. He has made me laugh for many years & I know he made my parents laugh for many years in Mork & Mindy. I have so many favorite movies that he was in: Mrs Doubtfire, Patch Adams, Jack, & Alladin were some of my FAVORITES! 
 Depression is real. If you need help or know someone that does, do not be afraid to seek help. It is not your fault and there are so many people that would love to help. Rest in Peace Robin Williams, you will be missed dearly.

Reading: Still finishing my piles of paperwork & magazines. Hoping I can bring my book with me this weekend to read!

Watching: My daughter try on her first pair of tap & ballet shoes tonight. She was just mesmerized watching all the little girls try on shoes & buy new leotards. I am so excited for her to start her first dance class next month!

Listening to: The ceiling fan spin & the background noise of the TV in the living room. The last commercials I heard were for Tampax & TMobile! haha
Excited about: Camping this weekend with my husband's family at Devil's Lake State Park. We have never been there before!

Thankful for: A nice weekend with my husband & kids! 

Proud of my little man for finishing gymnastics camp!

Fun at the local county fair!

Thankful for my hubby that has been working his butt off on our shed project all by himself. This weekend he made cement & filled the 12 holes that he dug with concrete. 

We spent Sunday in Taylors Falls, Minnesota at Wild Mountain with friends. The kids had a BLAST on the water slides, alpine slide & go karts!

Wishing: {Weekly Wish List for Sh*t I want to get done}
 This week: 
1. Pack for camping this weekend
2. Read to the kids more... We have been slacking big time this summer.
3. Drink more WATER
4. Continue to meal plan, eat healthy & exercise.

Last weeks wish list:  
1. READ! I really want to read! I read lots of piles of paperwork on my table & magazines, but no books yet. Getting there...
2. Help my hubby this weekend on our shed project, we are FINALLY getting started.Well, I helped a little...I ended up cleaning my house & doing laundry all day...but he got a great start on our shed & got all the cement footings poured!! YAY hubby!
3. Continue to meal plan, eat healthy & exercise. Getting there, I have my good moments & bad, but I am consciously making an effort...which is a great step!


My favorite Quote of the Day

Another great one by Robin Williams: "No matter what people tell you, words & ideas can change the world!" 

Tonight's post is linked up with A Mama Collective - Currently

  1. That tap and ballet picture is precious! I remember taking those classes as a little girl. It felt like a such a big deal, and I was so excited about my shoes. I am making it a goal to drink more water this week also. It is so easy for me to forget during the day. Have a great week!

    1. Thank you Megan :) I still need to work on the water thing...
      Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. I love this, Becky :) The county fair looks crazy fun! I'm a little bit jealous. And those shoes?? Too stinking cute. Great job on meal planning and eating healthy... I really need to focus on that this week as well. Thanks for the reminder ;) ~Jenna
