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


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.

EXCITED for this baby boy to come. It's just a matter of days now. And also for my parents to get here on Sunday!

WORRIED about my upcoming c-section and recovery. I'm hoping it goes better this time around.

READING blogs. Trying to keep up on my Bloglovin feed.

WRITING/CREATING blog posts. Trying to get caught up on pregnancy posts, etc.

LOOKING FORWARD TO my parents coming on Sunday!!! SO SO SO EXCITED!!!

FEELING very pregnant.

WEATHER is actually not too hot this week. It's been in the 90's.

WANTING a tropical beach vacation with the Hubby. Not for the warmth, but for the sand, fruity drinks and quality time with my Hubby. We've never been on a vacation just the two of us and we have never been out of the country.

NEEDING just a few more things for baby boy.

THINKING ABOUT lots of different things lately. I have a lot on my mind. 

ENJOYING time with my sisters while they are here and relishing these last few days of being pregnant.

THANKFUL FOR my Husband who works every day for our family. 

DREAMING about this baby boy and what he will look like and be like.

TRYING to be better at meal planning and cooking things.

Hating: the busy-ness of the gym this time of year. I get it that everyone has to start somewhere, it's just annoying. Looking forward to February when it goes back to normal.

Also, Hating: how grown up Hailey looks after getting a hair cut. Seriously? Just stop.

I can't believe I haven't done one of these for over a year. Oofta! I'm going to try and do this fun little thing more often, cause it is such a nice little re-cap.

Currently Reading: 50 Shades of Grey (Yes I'm still reading book 1). I don't get that much reading in, but I'm really trying lately. My goal is a minimum of 10 pages before bed. I would like to get through all 3 books eventually. Haha.

Currently Eating: Chinese food for lunch at work. Just rice and noodles. Still trying to keep it somewhat light from being sick this week.

Currently Purchased: I actually just bought this off of Amazon today. I've been wanting one for awhile now and really want to start doing morning smoothies and protein shakes in it. I won't get it for another week, but I'm excited!

Currently Listening to: country music as of late. You can blame my Husband for that. Thanks Wayne. More specifically I've been listening to K102 at work trying to get to know the artists and songs. I've been listening on my computer through iHeartRadio. The station doesn't come in so well on my regular radio. I still listen to my hubs though at night from 6-Midnight on KDWB no matter what.

Currently Watching: Bachelorette just finished up this week so that leaves a bit of a void, but I am loving Mistresses, So You Think You Can Dance, Guiliana & Bill, True Blood, Keeping up with the Kardashians and The Challenge on MTV. These shows will keep me going through the rest of summer and then I can gear up for fall TV!

Currently on my Nails: French. Boring I know, but sometimes you just need a break from color.

Currently Excited: that today is Friday and we don't have a super busy weekend ahead! I'd like to get to the gym tomorrow if I feel good enough. I plan on going out with friends tomorrow night and then a birthday brunch on Sunday at my MIL's. Not too shabby.

Currently Wearing: Jeans and a tank top...casual Friday, which we don't get to do very often.

Currently Nervous: About how I've been feeling lately. Being sick and not sure what's going on with my body. And no, I am not pregnant. As my MIL asked me..."Have you peed on a stick lately?" Yes, I have and no I am not.

Currently Wanting: A tropical vacation.

Currently Looking ahead to: The MN State of my favorite times of the year. Less than 2 weeks people!!

Currently Enjoying: My easy days at work. It's been a nice balance lately.

Currently Crossing my Fingers: That we will be able to get approved for a home loan sometime in the near future.

Currently Feeling: Content with life.

Currently Loving This Quote:

Currently Crushing on: Jimmy Fallon. Anyone else? No? Just me. OK then.

Happy Friday!

currently . . .

current book(s)

Vampire Diaries. Might not finish it though. I watch the  TV show on CW, but the books are WAY different. Too different. I don't think I like. Not sure what to read next. Any suggestions?

current playlist

Gym Class Heroes...still obsessed with this song:

current color

I usually don't wear nail polish, for several reasons actually.
1) I don't do self manicures well.
2) I think nail polish looks funny on me. I don't have the fingers for it.
3) I don't have the time to keep up with it.

With that said, I have been itching lately to get some sort of manicure and try it. While I get pedicures regularly I don't ever get manicures. We'll see what new adventures the new year brings.

current drink

Cherry Coke

current food

Anything chinese

current favorite show

I have several. New Girl, Revenge and Hart of Dixie are my new faves this year.

current needs

To start and finish Christmas shopping. Then to wrap all said shopping items.

current triumph(s)

I'm hoping by the end of this weekend I will have the mentioned Christmas shopping somewhat completed and if not then very close with a game plan.

current bane(s) of my existence

See Christmas shopping above.

current celebrity crush

Ryan Gosling...need I say more?


current #1 blessing

Obviously it would be Hailey and my Husband. But more specific would be our health. I just know too many people/children/babies that have complications or are going through various things and it breaks my heart every time I hear of something new. Just this week, I heard through a friend that these parents lost their 3 year old to a heart attack. This little boy had heart surgery when he was little, so they knew it might be a possibility, but it's still devastating nonetheless.

current indulgence

White chocolate covered Oreos


current outfit

Work attire...brown dress pants from VS...cream colored top from Kohls...cream colored sweater from somewhere I don't remember cause I have had it for so long...nylons with brown heels

current excitement

Getting our Christmas cards out this weekend!!So excited to share with everyone!

current mood

happy and's payday

current favorite holiday decoration

These little trees I bought from Target.


current #1 item on your wishlist

Desktop computer...which my AWESOME and totally RAD parents are getting for us for Christmas. So excited to not only have two computers (desktop & laptop) in our household, but I can't wait to get my printer hooked up again. It's been way too long and I have so many projects I want to start and finish.

current new year's resolution

Don't be so lazy + work out = loose baby weight& get toned
