Our Five Ring Circus: Currently...

Tuesday, January 29, 2013


I'm watching...Parenthood Season 2.  Love that show!  Grant and I have also been watching the Best Picture nominations for the Oscars.   Les Miserables, Argo, and Silver Linings Playbook were our favorites.  Les Mis is AMAZING and I'm hoping it wins!

I'm reading...lots of baby books!  It's Lily's favorite thing to do these days.  I'm also reading two chapters from a Goosebumps book to Dylan every night.  As for myself?  Lots of blogs!  I'm trying to catch up!  I started a crime book, but never got past the first few chapters. 

I'm listening to...top 40 radio. My kids request it when they're in the car.  That's pretty much all the time!

I'm thinking about...many things!  I have a lot on my mind these days. Right now, I'm bothered by an issue with some of the boys in Dylan's class.  It's not bothering Dylan, but it bothers me!

I need to...file our income taxes.  Set up some doctor appointments.  Deal with a health insurance issue.

I'm creating...headbands!  Well...thinking about creating headbands.  I have a box full of supplies.  I just need to sit down and do it!

I'm cooking...lots of soup.  I'm in a cooking funk and haven't had an appetite for much of anything these days.

I'm proud of...Dylan and Lexie! Once again, they had awesome report cards.  Dylan also received an Outstanding Attendance award this past 9 weeks!  I'm so happy that they love to learn!

I'm looking forward to...warmer weather! I can't wait for sunny, warm, Spring days.  I can't wait to go to the park and spend hours outside!

I'm loving...my new cable knit leggings.  They are warm and comfortable!  Same goes for my super-comfy fleece pajama pants!

I'm very grateful for...my wonderful family and friends.  I truly am blessed. 

Our plans for this week...Storytime for Lexie today, Gymnastics for Lexie tomorrow, shopping with my mom and dinner with my parents and sister on Friday, a baby shower on Saturday, and a birthday party on Sunday.  Phew!


  1. Always busy, you are! Sounds like the kids are doing great!

  2. I love Parenthood! I just watched the last show yesterday on my computer...I'm lame and fell asleep last week before it started. I won't give it away but the ending is soooo good. =) XO

  3. I love these kinds of posts!
    I feel the same, between practices, cooking, cleaning up, work, fun time, I'm never caught up, but I guess if we didn't feel this way, we wouldn't be doing the best job we do...being a mommy!

  4. I love parenthood. Sounds like your babies are doing great and you have great things planned

  5. Lets make a date to do headbands! I have supplies as well and need to bang some out :)

  6. We got report cards this week too. Hooray for hard working kids :-)

  7. love this post - where do you get these cute ideas?! I loved Silver Linings Playbook, too - that might be the only Oscar nominated movie for best picture that I've seen...

    Parenthood is one of my fav shows now, too!

  8. I can't watch Parenthood this season. :o( The story line is too close to home and I'm pregnant so I was crying EVERY.SINGLE.EPISODE!

    And I was thinking of doing a 'currently' post and I think I'll use this as inspiration.

    Also, yay for your kids and great report cards! I hope mine enjoy learning too.

  9. Boy drama? this exists and in 2nd grade...eeeek, I hope things get worked out. Yay for good report cards, having kids that love to learn is a bonus in today's world, makes for happy parents AND happy teachers!! I am also on Parenthood Season 2, we will have to debrief soon!

  10. Sorry about the boy drama! Been there. It is different than the girl drama and sometimes more difficult to deal with I think.

    Yay for Dylan and Lexie report cards!!

    I too have had zero desire for cooking. In a rut.

    I'm with Tracy...let's make a headband making date!

  11. You have a busy week coming up. I spend most of my reading time reading blogs too- though I have read 3 books this month! Which is why I am behind on blogs :)

  12. Ooo, cable knit stockings sound fab! I think I need some. :)

  13. I love this idea...Yes, I can't seem to find the time to read any books either; thankfully, I still get a chance to read my friends' blogs! You should be so proud of your smart kiddos. My little boy doesn't like preschool too much, but I'm hoping this will change when he goes to kindergarten...

  14. I like this! I love Parenthood! I so hope they don't cancel it!!! So many little things go on in our lives that don't get talked about or posted on. Nice tidy little format here.


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
