Currently {vol.40}

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, well almost Tuesday! Week 40 of this Currently series, WOW. Time flies!

Sorry for the delay. This past week has been crazy! Filled with my birthday, Christmas events, sick kids, sick husband, house projects, crabby momma, you name it...we dealt with it. So, now we are trying to get some rest and enjoy each other! Today, we begin our mini vacation to a waterpark with our kids as their Christmas gift from us! 

Trying: To get back into gear. Why does it have to be so difficult? I went for a nice run on Christmas Eve morning, it felt so good. 

Adoring: This adorable photo of my kids hugging. My son made my daughter a christmas gift and gave her a hot wheels of his own wrapped up for Christmas. She was so excited & gave him a huge hug. I love moments like this. As they were probably just fighting about something a few moments earlier! ha

Building: Finally, we are getting to the shelving in my son's room. With a sick hubby this past week, it has been difficult to keep the projects moving along. But we are getting there. It is going to look amazing when it is done!

Staining: The boards for the shelving & desk for the #bigkidroom project. Saturday, I stained, Sunday, I stained, Monday morning, my husband put a coat of polyurethane on them. 1 more coat to go this week...and we can put everything together! YAY

Enjoying: The waterpark with my family! Today, we arrived at the waterpark hotel for our little adventure vacation for our kids Christmas gift. Having a blast so far!

Salivating: This delicious whip cream topped sundae from the waterpark ice cream shop fed all 4 of us after our delicious pizza supper. 
*More waterpark photos to come next week!

Quote of the Day: This is so true. Today, we are making so many wonderful family memories together. We have been laughing all day listening to the hilarious things that come out of our children's mouths!

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!


  1. Sounds like so much fun! I really need to get back into running, or some kind of exercise. your kids are so adorable.

    1. It was finally time for me to see the light and get back into gear :)
      I think they are pretty darn cute too!! ha

  2. Sounds like you're staying busy & sorry to hear you've had a sick hubby! The bookshelf is going to look fabulous when done!

    1. Thank you! I am excited to get his room done too. With sickness traveling through our whole house for the past few weeks, everything has been on hold!

  3. Wow those shelves look like they'll be amazing once they're done. Just a pain with all the staining they need.

    1. yes, staining is a pain. But I can't wait till they are done & up and they will look awesome! Thanks for stopping by Emma!!

  4. I just booked our Great Wolf vacation today! We are going next month, it'll be our second time there... we went last year, too! It is so fun to go somewhere with indoor swimming in the winter! I am sorry you all had the sickies, we have here too and it was terrible timing with the holidays. Hoping my daughters asthma stays well, because she is a flower girl this weekend in a wedding... talk about stress and pressure! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE those shelves!!!
