Our Five Ring Circus: Currently

Tuesday, April 1, 2014


I'm watching...Parenthood and the last season of Frasier on Netflix.

I'm reading...I'm still trying to make my way through Inferno by Dan Brown!  What can I say?  I'm busy all day and by the time I climb into bed, I'm exhausted!

I'm listening to...Let It Go from Frozen.  Over and over and over and over again.

I'm thinking about...how grateful I am that Liam is so healthy and strong.  What to put on my birthday list for Grant so he can shop for my presents tomorrow (I don't NEED anything).  How boring birthdays are as you get older, but how happy I am because of all the amazing people in my life.

I need to...update my April calendar, shop for more spring/summer clothing, work on a lot of blog posts, and catch up on my blog reading.  I'm so behind.

I'm creating...photo walls.  I have been printing out my favorite pictures and buying frames.

I'm cooking...not much this week!  I went out to dinner with friends last night, Grant and I stopped for dinner after our hospital visit today, I'm going out to dinner for my birthday tomorrow, my mom is cooking for me on Friday, and I'm supposed to go out to dinner on Sunday.  I'm honestly enjoying the break!
I'm shopping for...Spring/Summer clothing, items for our basement and bathroom, and furniture for Lexie and Lily's room.

I'm organizing...paperwork and bills.  Always.

I'm proud of...my sweet kids.  They care so much about each other and are so good to each other.  It makes me feel like we're doing something right.  

I'm looking forward to...my birthday dinner with Grant tomorrow.  We don't get very many date nights!

I'm loving...my wonderful family and friends.  I am so lucky to have them in my life.  Black Tie Mousse Cake from Olive Garden.  Seriously the best cake ever.  The warmer Spring weather.  I love the amazing weather we had today!

I'm very grateful for...the good news we received at Liam's ENT appointment today.  Our little man continues to defy all odds.

Our plans for this week...I went to dinner with my friends last night, we took Liam to an appointment at the hospital today, tomorrow is my birthday, Thursday is free (for now), I'm visiting my parents on Friday, Saturday is free so far, and going to dinner on Sunday and visiting with my sister.


  1. Happy almost birthday!!!! Yay for good news on sweet Liam!!!


  2. Glad the ENT appt. went well! Happy birthday - enjoy your dinner!

  3. Great news about Liam! I think most parents are singing Frozens Let it go a bazillion times in their heads if not out loud LOL... Cole sings it to Cody all the time so it is hard for me to get it out of my head too.
    Happy Birthday week! Have a great time on your "date night" dinner. :o)

  4. Love Liam is so strong! I wake up humming the frozen songs. :) I also love that your kids a good to each other - I have a less than stellar relationship with my brother and your kids give me hope for my kids to get along! :)

  5. Man EVERYONE is watching Parenthood. I need to check it out. Hope you'll link up the 4 easter baskets this year! I would love to see what the kiddos get. :)


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