Currently {vol.37}

This Currently series is just a regular, every day post about what is going on in my regular every day life that day.

Hello Friends! Happy Monday!  The delicious photo above was taken on Saturday evening, when the kids & I made Christmas treats!

Trying: To be more patient. Patience has never been a strength of mine, but I know I need to work on it in all aspects of my life. This quote below was from a friend on Instagram this week that said her grandfather told her to slow down & enjoy this time in her life, and to be more patient. I needed to hear those words too!

"Things take time, so just be patient."

Loving: My new Ornament from Lisa Leonard Designs! I bought a different ornament for my mom for Christmas too! If you haven't checked out her site before, go check it out! She has the most amazing jewelry, ornaments and gifts!

Adoring: My tiny dancer!! She was so cute at her Tiny Toes dance class tonight!

Thankful for: A great Saturday with my kids! I had a pretty stressful week last week with my husband out of town, but Saturday the kids & I enjoyed a little shopping, lunch, The Penguins of Madagascar movie and making Christmas goodies together!

Excited about: So many things this week!
1. Seeing one of my best friends who is returning from active duty in Afghanistan. She is returning home a couple months earlier than expected and I am just gitty to see her. I may "ugly" cry when I hug her Wednesday night!
2. Going to see the Best Christmas Pageant Ever at our local theater on Friday night with the kids
3. Dinner & drinks with my hubby & some good friends on Saturday night! Can't wait!

Craving: Pioneer Woman's restaurant style salsa! My friend is making it on Thursday to bring to our monthly family dinner night. I can't wait! Mmmmm...So easy & so delicious.

Remembering: After a hard week last week with my hubby out of town Sunday-Sunday, I was blessed to receive kind words from a few friends. I made up this quote about a month ago and love to look at it now & then. Kind words do heal. You can make a difference in so many peoples lives by just being kind. 

Favorite quote of the day: I love to laugh, it's my favorite!

What are you CURRENTLY up to this week?

Thanks for reading & I hope you enjoyed learning about a little bit of randomness about me! Have a wonderful week!
