Currently (March 2016)

I haven't done one of these since mid last year, so here goes.

CURRENTLY...

EXCITED for dinner with my cousins that are in town this week visiting Las Vegas. 

I'm also excited for Pitbull to come back. The opening show for this residency is Wednesday night! Woohoo!

I'm also excited that the new Bachellorette is JoJo!!! She was my season favorite and even though I know Ben and Lauren are ultimately better together, I LOVED JoJo and how she carried herself all the way up until the very end.




WORRIED that I won't get the documents I need in order to get a Las Vegas drivers license. I have 24 days to get what I need and get my booty to the DMV.

READING blogs. Trying to keep up on my Bloglovin feed. Also, reading blogs give me some creative juice.

WRITING/CREATING not much other than a few blog posts. 

LOVING my little family. Seriously nothing better than us.

HATING that our rent is going up as of June 1st. Lots of decisions to be made soon. Moving? What area of the city are we moving to? Can we stay in our area? Finding a new place? Finding a new daycare? Getting Griffin into daycare? Hailey starting Kindergarten in the fall? Which school will she end up at?

WONDERING whether we should re-sign our lease at our current house or try and look for something more affordable. We got notice that our rent is going up, so that's not very fun. And while we LOVE the house, we are just not sure if the new price is really worth it.

EATING PF Changs. We went out to dinner over the weekend for the first time in awhile. Love me some good chinese food. 

DRINKING coffee in the AM, water the rest of the day, with a coke thrown in every once in awhile.

CRAVING coke. Sometimes I crave that fountain coke taste and I try and curb it with a regular coke. I end up not even finishing it half the time.

HOPING answers to our rental situation work itself out in the coming weeks.

WATCHING Fuller House with the family. Walking Dead. There were a couple weeks where it was like, what's next and then last weeks episode with Neegan's group was exciting. Now I think we are back to what's next? Bachelor Finale. Read above. So happy that Ben and Lauren are happy and I squeeled with excitement when they announced JoJo as the new Bachelorette. I'm also getting caught up on lots of other shows that I got behind on. Trust me there is a lot and with two kids and working full time, I just don't have the time to really keep up.

LISTENING TO lots of Rascal Flatts lately. Also, 93.1 The Party of course.

WEATHER is in the mid to high 70's this week. It's perfect Spring weather.

WEARING sandals and loving it. There was about a month or two where I wore closed toe shoes, because it was "winter" in Vegas, but other than that, I have been wearing sandals exclusively. I just got these at DSW for super cheap. They are not the MOST comfortable and by the end of the day I need to take them off, but they are super cute and have been my go to sandal since I got them about a month ago now.


LOOKING FORWARD TO our vacation at the end of April. It's the first time Wayne and I have been out of the country and on a vacation just the two of us. No family. No kids. Just us. We even had to get passports, which is crazy.

FEELING very tired. Griffin has been getting up multiple times per night. It sucks for work the next day. #coffeeplease

WANTING some new summer clothes, but I gotta get my booty into the gym first. 

NEEDING a new bed. We have had our current king size bed for almost 10 years and just within the last few months it just hasn't been as comfortable as it used to be.

Also, I am NEEDING to get my booty to the gym. I have been procrastinating because while our gym opened March 1st, the Kids Club hasn't opened yet. so I have been kind of waiting on that.

THINKING ABOUT lots of different things lately. See above HATING with so much on my mind. 

ENJOYING this stage that Griffin's in. He's so smiley and happy and growing too fast. It makes my heart hurt sometimes that both him and Hailey are growing so fast. He's going to be 1 and she is going to be 5 before I even know it. Gah!!



THANKFUL FOR my Husband who works every day for our family. He is my rock and I seriously don't know what I would do without him. 

DREAMING about our vacation in 45 days.

CLICKING ON this BLOG. She does a weekly menu planning blog post, that I have been getting some inspiration from. I haven't tried the meatballs and tortellini bake, but it's on my list. Also, THIS blog is also a good go to if you are looking for uber healthy options.

OBSESSING over the future. So many things on my mind. See previous THINKING ABOUT.

WISHING I had more time in the day for things. I feel like all I do Monday-Friday is work and then by the time I get home, get dinner done, eat and spend a little time being Mom/Wife, there is no time for anything else. Like this little blog for instance. I'm trying to get a better balance of things, but by the time both kids are sleeping, all I want to do is go to sleep.

TRYING to get better at meal planning. It's such a pain, but it's so helpful. Any tips for me?

Until next time.
