Currently {vol.23}

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!I have been slacking on my blog lately, we have been sooo busy enjoying summer, I haven't been working out or blogging as much as I would like. It's time to get back in gear!

Thinking about: My little man & how grown up he looks tonight after his back to school haircut. How can he be going into 1st grade? Is it even possible, well I guess it is...but it just doesn't seem like it. I remember always hearing moms tell me that life goes by in a blink of an eye when you have kids, but it seems to be going at the speed of light. Time, slow down! I am not ready for my baby boy to be all grown up yet.

Also thinking about how much fun we had at our End of Summer Backyard BBQ last night. It was very hot outside, but the kids enjoyed playing in the pool, going on the slip n slide and in the sand box. The adults enjoyed relaxing on the deck under the shade, playing yard games & munching on yummy snacks. As I was cleaning up last night, I realized I didn't take one single photo. Oops...I guess it was a good party!
Reading: Today on my lunch break at work, I read through a HUGE pile of articles that I had been wanting to read. It wasn't the book I had been wanting to start, but I at least made a dent in some reading material I had stacked up!

Watching: The beautiful Wisconsin sunset on our way home. We are so blessed. I couldn't help by stop on the side of the road & get out to take a quick photo.

Enjoying: Making homemade applesauce in the crock-pot! This week I will be making more applesauce & dehydrated apples. It is so delicious!

Excited about: Our new shed! It's finally coming together. Tomorrow night, the in-laws are coming again to help. I am so thankful for helpful family!

Thankful for: Wonderful Friends
Thursday evening, I was blessed to spend the evening with wonderful friends at the Villa Bellezza winery. We laughed, enjoyed wine tasting and ended the evening relaxing on Lake Pepin.

Saturday evening we went to a local festival put on by my husband's godparents. The kids enjoyed the festivities as well!

Today, I am thankful for a dear friend that brought me a bin of clothes for my daughter for this fall & winter! I love hand me downs, especially for daycare!

Wishing: {Weekly Wish List for Sh*t I want to get done}
