Another week is nearing an end and I'm still not caught up on my to do list! I'm assuming that I never will catch up on that list. There just simply isn't enough time in the day!
Here's a little glimpse at life lately...
WATCHING: We just finished watching Boardwalk Empire. I was skeptical, but it was AMAZING! We also caught up on season four of New Girl on Netflix. I love the show, but we never manage to watch it when it's on TV. Switched at Birth is my guilty pleasure when I get the chance. Which is maybe once a week. It's going to take me forever to finish the series! We're also joining the rest of the world and getting drawn into Making a Murderer and eagerly awaiting the return of The Walking Dead (AKA my weekly dose of anxiety). We usually throw in a few episodes of our trusty favorites, Gilmore Girls and Frasier, into our weekly rotation, too!
LISTENING TO: Can I be honest? Silence. 4 kids create an abundance of noise. I often strap my kids into their car seats and turn the air on as high as it will go so it drowns out everything else. It's just for a few minutes and it seems to calm me! After that, it's today's hottest music by request of my children. When I get my way, it's musicals, soundtracks, and Josh Groban!
READING: The Parent's Guide to Down Syndrome written by my amazing friend, Jen Jacob, and Mardra Sikora. Review coming soon! Also, Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. It's an easy read that my mom gave me years ago!
EATING: I'm on an English Muffin kick lately. I top it with butter and jam...yum! And, well, chocolate. I have to have just a little bit of chocolate every single day!
DRINKING: Hot Tea morning, Iced Tea in the afternoon, and Hot Tea at night. I drink water throughout the day and that's about it, other than an occasional glass of orange juice.
BUYING: Grant's getting a new car tonight. That's major! Next on the list is a new car seat for Liam. The safest convertible seats are the Britax Clicktight, the Chicco NextFit, and the Graco seat that Lily has. I love Lily's seat so much, but I wanted to try out the other two models. People get very pushy about which seat is the ultimate seat, so I wanted to try before I buy. All 3 seats are great, but I'm leaning toward the Chicco NextFit. Liam's tiny body fit so well in the seat and the mechanics were very similar to Lily's seat. No matter what I choose, this article is a great reminder about how a PROPERLY installed seat is the safest seat, no matter which brand it is! Oh, and I bought Liam a few adorable sweater rompers on super clearance at Babies R Us. I couldn't resist the one with the bow tie!
PINNING: Lots of organization ideas, recipes, Valentine's Day ideas, clever hacks, and activities for kids. You can see them HERE! This DIY storage unit with window seat is AWESOME, my kids would love this Dinosaur Egg Melting Activity, and and I'm thinking about making these adorable valentines.
PLANNING: Lexie's 9th Birthday Party. HOW is she turning 9 already?!? We're also starting to discuss our beach vacation this summer!
WORRYING: Oh, just about making the right decision regarding Liam and preschool. I also have a meeting on Monday morning that I'm not too thrilled about!
THINKING: That I need to go to bed. It's almost 2 AM!
CELEBRATING: The fact that the temperature isn't in the single digits or teens right now. That's pretty sad, isn't it?!?
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Finishing our tax return! (It's on the agenda for this afternoon.) Celebrating our a "framily" member's 14th birthday on Sunday! And just to keep it real, sleeping in over the weekend!!!
LOVING: My cozy pajamas from Target. My fuzzy bootie slippers. Boot socks. Cake batter Chapstick. Cuddling with my kids by the fire.
WEARING: My winter attire consists of skinny jeans, sweaters, boot socks, and boots. Every single day. And kids in my arms. That's a given!
That sums up life lately! I can't believe January is coming to an end this weekend!
