Happy September! I seriously can't believe that it's September already... I swear this year is flying by! Here are a few tidbits of what I've been up to recently...
C U R R E N T L Y ::
Doing // a DIY project. It's something I've been wanting to do forever, it's almost done and I'm so excited to share more! (ps I guess I should add... Seth is doing most of it, clearly I'm just supervising and drinking wine LOL)
Dreaming about // Fall. I'm not usually one who skips ahead so far, especially to October for the next holiday, and especially because my birthday is right in the middle of summer and fall, but Seth and I went to Home Goods the other day and all the Halloween decorations had me SO EXCITED! Please Fall, please bring cooler temperatures! I'm missing my scarves!
Drinking // Homemade Passion Tea Lemonades. It's seriously so easy to make! I just bought the Tazo iced tea tea bags in the passion tea flavor, brewed the tea in my iced tea maker, made some Country Time lemonade (in a separate pitcher), and then did about half tea and half lemonade and voila! You could definitely add more tea for a less sweet flavor or more lemonade for a more sweet flavor. So good and so much cheaper than Starbucks!
Excited about // My birthday! It's officially birthday month and the countdown is on. Guess 31 is not old enough to start dreading your birthday :)
Hating // That I've been falling asleep on the couch before 10 pm every night. But what I really mean is "if I'm lucky I make it to 10pm". Seriously, my friend texted me at 9:35pm the other night and what was I doing? Totally sleeping on the couch. I'm so exciting!
Listening To // Nothing really in particular right now. Mainly just the local country radio station, but I'm kinda loving Carrie Underwood's new single "Smoke Break".
Loving // Little man in his big backpack! I don't know why, but seriously this is the cutest thing ever to me! He usually refuses to wear it and while I was out one day, he put on his backpack and Seth snapped a picture. All the heart eye emojis!
Needing // A car wash -- on the outside AND inside! My car is ridiculously dirty on the outside and covered in veggie straws and Cheerios on the inside. It needs a good cleaning - bad!
Planning // For Christmas. I said this last time, but seriously, I am! And I'm so proud! I'm slightly afraid that this will make me spend more money than I normally do because I will forget that I have all these goodies saved up and hidden in my closet, but I'm actually impressed that I'm doing what I say I always want to do and shop early. In fact, I bought a few more things this past weekend!
Reading // Blogs. Per the usual.
Wanting // To sign Mason up for baseball. I mean look at him? How stinkin' cute would it be for him to play baseball/tee ball? And the awesome thing is... he's actually super good at hitting the ball!
Watching // NCIS Season 12. And baseball baseball baseball! We cancelled cable half way through this last season of NCIS and so we had only seen half. Even though we still have basic cable since our HOA pays for that, we would always forget when it was on or would miss it and not want to watch online so now that it's on Netflix, we've been watching an episode or two (or three!) a night. The best part? No commercials AND no "waiting until next week"!
Oh and Bachelor in Paradise - sometimes - when I can handle it. The drama! Oh the drama. Sometimes it's too much and I just have to change the channel. But I watched last night and after that preview, I'm totally in for next week too!
Wishing // That I had bought tickets to the Taylor Swift concert. Wayyyyy back in like December (?) when the tickets went on sale, I wasn't too into Taylor. But then one of my employees at the bookstore introduced me to her 1989 CD and I fell in love. My sister in law and niece went to the concert last week and I was watching some videos and looking at pictures from the concert they went to the other night and was SO jealous! Next time Taylor comes, I'm going!
Wondering // How Moms can carry so much. This is me, Monday morning. It might not look like a lot, but let me tell you, it was heavy! I'm carrying my purse, my lunch, a bag with Mason's ABA binder and sheets for school, and my coffee. Not pictured : Mason, who I picked up and carried to the car right after I took this picture. And his milk cup that he, of course, made me carry as well.
And there you have it. That's what I've been up to! What have you been up to lately?
