I love "currently" posts because I love documenting what's going on at the moment. I'm a huge fan of making digital scrapbooks (both for our family and for Noah) as well as using this blog as a scrapbook of sorts. I've been doing "currently" posts for a while now, but recently changed up the format. Here's what I've been up to in July...
Eating: too much ;) I feel like I've gotten into the bad habit of snacking on unhealthy things in the afternoon with Noah. From chocolate covered almonds to Swedish Fish, I need to cut back on the sweets!
Looking: for an anniversary gift for Chris... any ideas for 6 years???
Loving: my waterproof camera. Now that Noah is a little fish and going underwater non stop at the pool, I love being able to take photos and videos of him swimming. I've had so many people comment on how cool the camera is whenever we are at the pool :)
Enjoying: Noah's company. I really do enjoy having Noah home over the summer. While I know he misses school and is excited to go back, it's really fun to be able to plan lots of day trips as well as a few lazy days at home. While I'm enjoying it, it doesn't mean I don't have a super long list of the things I plan to do when he goes back to school this fall ;)
Hoping: for good weather for our upcoming RI beach trip! We've had so much fun the past three years (2015, 2014, 2013) and can't wait to do it again next week!
Needing: to take more walks, which means I need some cooler weather either in the morning or evening! Or I just need to make less excuses ;)
Wishing: Chris could take more days off in the summer so we can enjoy the beach, pool, Sesame place, etc as a family when it isn't so crowded!
Feeling: behind. I'm struggling to stay on top of reading, my blog, reading other blogs, participating in my FB groups, doing my scrapbooks... the list goes on and on!
Drinking: too much Diet Coke. And I just realized this was my answer back in March too!
Planning: to spend August at the pool! We just got an "August membership" for our town pool and I'm so excited!
Wearing: these leather slides. I feel like every summer there's a shoe/sandal that I love so much that I end up wearing them with everything. These slides from Old Navy are so comfortable and easy to slide on as I'm running out the door. I wear them with shorts, dresses, and even to the pool and beach! I should have bought a few pairs!
Watching: Big Brother, Pretty Little Liars, and Fixer Upper. Chris got me into Big Brother a few years ago and now I really look forward to it every summer! I've been a PLL fan since it started and just can't get enough! And as for Fixer Upper, I just started watching it. I can't believe it took me so long to get into it. I got a Season's Pass on my TiVo and whenever I have some downtime I watch an episode or two. I'm kind of bummed that I don't have any left on my saved shows! The best part is when Noah was in camp and he asked me what I was going to do while he was gone, he told me I should watch one of my shows, and specifically told me to watch Big Brother and Fixer Upper!
Listening to: lots of songs, trying to decide what songs to use for all the home videos I plan to make! Now I just need to find the time to actually make the videos!
Reading: Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty. I've really loved linking up with Stephanie's "Reading Wednesday", but recently I feel so behind in my reading. I had the goal to read a book a month this year and I'm already behind. I am enjoying this book so far and hope that it gets me back into the routine of reading again.
