Well, another month has gone by, so here we go…

Reading… The Return of the King, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

I think I’m going to work my way through all of the Tolkien books that I have, but I can never read just one book at a time and started The Readers of Broken Wheel, which is really good so far. Its light, which I feel like is perfect for right now and also inspired me a bit.

Watching (on TV)… Getting ready for Outlander!!

I am a full blown fanatic.  I would honestly re-read the books right now if I didn’t have so many others on my plate already.  #bookwormproblems

Watching (movies)… Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Finally watched it this month!  Now I really want to go see IT as well, though.  The original creeped me out so much when I was a kid and now I feel like I have to see the remake.

Playing… This Is the Police, Lego: Jurassic World

Josh and I have been playing Lego: Jurassic World together, but I can never stick with just one game and bounce around a lot and wanted to try out This Is the Police for Twitch streaming tonight.

Listening to Thumping bass.

There is a street fair/festival/something happening this weekend in the town where I work, and apparently they’re starting up already!

Drinking… Coffee, coffee, coffee!!

Hot, Iced, you name it.  I’m sure I’ll switch more to tea as we get into fall as tea has always been more of a fall drink for me.

Eating… Not as much junk, but probably more than I should be.

The story of my life.

Wearing Layers.

The leaves are changing and while this week has cooled down, I’ll be back in summer clothes next weekend as the temps are supposed to go back up.

Trying To start up some healthier mental and physical habits.

We’re attempting to get to the gym more, eat better, but also cut down on distractions like various screens and social media things like that.

Wanting A new comforter/duvet

Our current comforter has been destroyed by the cats over time and it’s just awful now.  Plus it doesn’t match anymore, so I’m on the hunt. I think I found the perfect one for Josh and I, but it’s a little spendy and I’d have to make sure to get a throw blanket to ensure the cats don’t destroy it.  SIGH.

Looking forward to… Fall!

Well, sort of.  I’ve been having a more difficult time getting into the changing season, but I’ve been reminding myself of all the good things. Walks that don’t leave me dripping with sweat, more blanket snuggles, tea and hot cocoa, fall colors, Halloween!

Thoroughly enjoying… Hearing all about Enzo’s kindergarten experiences.

His first week has gone swimmingly and I think he’s going to grow up a lot this year.  He’s been a tad excited and therefore really amped up, but I think things will settle in a week or so.  Phoebe, on the other hand is having a rougher week with her transition into the preschool room at day care.

Disliking… Tantrums and rough bedtimes.

Need I say more?

Feeling… All over the place.

A little anxious, but trying to focus on gratitude and staying optimistic.


Reading… The Two Towers, Tell the Wolves I’m Gone

Watching (on TV)… Game of Thrones, The Great British Bake-Off, Glow (just finished)

Watching (movies)… Wow… I can’t think of any that we’ve watched recently.

Playing… Broken Age, Indigo Prophecy

Listening to… Silence, but I should put on some Spotify or something before I get tired.

Drinking… Coffee, coffee, coffee!!

Eating… Too much junk… again. Story of my life.

Wearing… Layers.  August weather can be crazy at times.

Deciding… What to wear for tonight.  It warmed up, but it might be too chilly to wear my original planned outfit.

Wanting… More time!!  How is there never enough?

Looking forward to… Renaissance Festival time!  I’m a dork and this year we are absolutely dressing up. Any excuse to dress in costume, right?

Feeling… Excited to go out with Josh tonight to MST3K Live!

Dreaming… Of all the things I’ll do once we win the lottery/start working for ourselves.

Searching… For random toys that Phoebe doesn’t know where she put.  Last time I couldn’t find the flashlights, I found them in our closet with her “buried” treasure, so maybe I’ll look there.

Thoroughly enjoying… Watching Enzo take on more responsibility here and there and having him be more snuggly.

Disliking… Tantrums.


Currently :

Reading… The Fellowship of the Ring

Watching (on TV)… The Great British Baking Show

Watching (movies)… Split. James McAvoy’s acting was the only reason to watch the film.  Otherwise… plot holes and various other little things that didn’t work.

Playing… Lots of video games. Haha!  I got my own PS4 (isn’t it pretty??) and I’ve joined Josh’s side project Rapscallion Brigade, which means I stream on Friday nights, but also means I’m watching other people play video games a lot too.  Haha!  No wonder I’m not getting any reading or TV watching in.

Drinking… Iced Coffee, Hot Coffee, Wine, Gin, and lots of water

Eating… Protein… and jelly beans. I love those little suckers so much.

Looking forward to… Next Saturday when Josh and I go on a little nerdy adventure.  He surprised me with tickets to the annual Little House on the Prairie pageant for our anniversary, so we’ll be heading to Walnut Grove and letting me live out some of my childhood dreams.

Feeling… Lucky, joyful, tired, happy, excited, positive, hopeful, playful, busy

Organizing… The kids’ rooms again.  They are back to separate bedrooms for a few reasons.  We’re having some growing pains with both of them and I’m hoping this will help. 

Loving… Our little Bearded Dragon.  He’s a fun addition to the house and despite that he’s actually a tad high maintenance, it hasn’t stopped me from wanting to add to our pet family.

Thoroughly enjoying… Honestly? A lot of things. I’m trying not to let as many things bother me and in general I’m not as stressed as I used to be. I’m a ray of sunshine!  😀


Reading… Luckiest Girl Alive (Meh), Britt-Marie Was Here

Watching (on TV)… Game of Thrones (2 more episodes until I’m caught up!!), The Handmaid’s Tale

Watching (movies)… Arrival, The Lobster (meh)

Listening to… Trolls Soundtrack (kids’ favorite), Radio, Nature Sounds at bedtime

Drinking… Iced Coffee, Hot Coffee, Wine, oh yeah, and some water

Eating… Trying to switch things up and get healthier. We are loving our Meat CSA, though.  Such good flavor.

Looking forward to… July. Josh is in charge of planning something for our anniversary and I have no idea what he’s picked. Haha!

Thinking… So many things. Enzo has his preschool graduation tonight and I can’t believe he’ll be starting Kindergarten in the fall.

Organizing… The garage and the outside in general. I still need to add one more plant to our front flower bed and then I think it’ll be “right.”

Searching… For the perfect bench or chairs for our front porch. It just needs something, but I haven’t found the perfect match yet.

Loving… The sound of birds in the morning. Nothing makes me quite so happy as waking up and listening to the birds busy outside.

Thoroughly enjoying… Sunshine!  Oh sweet, glorious sunshine!  I will never stop loving sunshine.

Excited… For summer in general!  We have no real plans, but I can’t wait. It’s going to be awesome.

Feeling… Great!  Maybe it’s the weather and summer has so many more cute clothing opportunities… Phoebe and I did a silly little photo shoot after I had “dolled” myself up.

Haha!  No fashion blogger in the making here!  Come, watch me model awkwardly in front of the chaos of our lives. 😉

Have a great weekend!


Reading… Written in My Own Heart’s Blood

Watching (on TV)… Game of Thrones, Girls, Call the Midwife (its back!!!)

Watching (movies)… Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Light Between Oceans

Listening to… A little bit of everything in order to put together some mixes for our road trip.  A road trip goes so much better with good tunes.

Drinking… Smoothies, Coffee, Tea, not as much wine

Eating… Too many April Fools Cupcakes. I’m kind of glad they’re all gone now. Ha!

Planning… Warm weather projects, both inside and out.

Feeling… Excited and happy!

Organizing… Not much really. I have things I need to organize, but I’ll wait until we get home.

Thankful… That it is almost vacation time!  We didn’t go anywhere last year, so this vacation is long overdue!

Loving… How much better I feel when I take my Super B12 B Complex. I have more energy and I feel like my mood is improved a lot as well.

Smiling… At the massive amounts of art the kids bring home each day.  For a while, Phoebe was the artist, but Enzo has started drawing a lot lately (people especially) and creates fantastic stories to go with them like the one about a potato and two mad guys.

Thoroughly enjoying… That it is spring!  We’ve been opening the windows and enjoying some amazing sunrises.
