Hey there it’s me. I’m still here even though it feels like I’ve been a little MIA lately. I’d like to mix things up a little bit today and just share a little about what’s on my mind these days. So, if you’ll bear with me, today’s post is just a round up of things happening in our house currently.
I’m also thinking of turning this into a monthly series. Let me know if you enjoy reading posts like this and I can try to incorporate more in the future.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I’m writing this on a Tuesday afternoon while Little naps. I schedule posts to go out at the crack of dawn and no way am I up that early. So, you’re reading this on Wednesday, I’m writing it on Tuesday, no big deal.
Currently, I am…
A little tired. We spent all morning at a local museum with friends and while it was lots of fun, I am totally wiped out and really thankful that Little is napping away down the hall.
What I should do about my camera. You may recall from this post that my camera took a dive into a water bucket recently and I’ve been without it ever since. I thought it would be fine, but I’m feeling a little lost in blog land without it. I know I can use stock photos and I do often around here, but there are lots of posts that I want to write that require photos. I’ve been kind of practicing with my phone, but it doesn’t feel the same. What cameras do you all use? Am I the only one who way prefers a camera to the phone camera? Ok, maybe it’s just me. But, I am also trying to decide between taking the plunge and getting a DSLR or sticking with a good, user friendly point and shoot camera. To be honest, I want both.
With so many friends this week. We have play dates every single day except Friday, which I have intentionally written on my calendar as a “rest day” in our house. I’m not the greatest at resting, and I’m taking the advice of a friend to schedule it on the calendar. It seems ridiculous to schedule “rest”, but then again it feels totally necessary. (And if you’re a friend that we’re hanging out with this week, we are HAPPY to play with you!) We usually do something each morning anyway, we’re just doing all the things with friends this week. It’s been fun!
Looking Forward To
Little’s birthday and my brother’s wedding. I just realized this week that we are less than two months away from both big events! They have really snuck up on me. I cannot wait to celebrate both. I can’t believe that Little is growing so fast and that my baby brother is getting married. It will be such a fun time with family and friends and I can’t wait. We might even take Little to the zoo (another thing my pre-children self promised I would never do – take small kids to the zoo…)
In all seriousness though, I do need to start planning for his birthday. I’m working on a wish list now for family and I think I’m going to make a birthday/Christmas list combined since Christmas will be here before we know it, too and I really think he’ll still be into similar things for both. Is that weird? Maybe. But it’s two bird with one stone and this mama is all about efficiency where I can find it.
So many things. I am trying to update some of the old images on the blog (crazy since the blog is still relatively so new, but I’ve learned so much and I have a much clearer idea of how I want images to look). We’re also continuing to declutter our home. It’s an ongoing process around here. Finally, I’ve been working really hard to get into a good and balanced routine around here that incorporates daily quiet times, blogging, house work, toddler activities and naps, and rest for mama. I’m open to your tips. Seriously.
And I think that really covers much of what’s happening over here these days. I would love to know what’s going on in your corner of the world. Share in the comments below, or get in touch with me on any of my social media outlets, linked above.
Happy Wednesday, friends. Until next time!
