At the moment: February 2023 – Peanut Butter Fingers

I simply checked and it seems just like the final time I shared a “Currently” themed weblog submit on this house was in July of final 12 months. We have been smack-dab in the midst of shifting mayhem, dwelling in Florida for 30 days and life was very a lot up within the air. Issues can change loads in seven months and we’re now in our new house and greater than a month into the brand new 12 months. I’d say it’s time for an additional At the moment replace! Let’s get to it! Right here’s somewhat peek into what’s occurring over right here these days… At the moment-style!

At the moment: February 2023

At the moment Watching: Break Point on Netflix

You guys we even have a present we’re watching proper now!! I swear Ryan and I am going months and months between reveals however once I heard about Break Level, I discussed it to Ryan and we gave it a shot after the boys have been in mattress final weekend. Ryan will watch any sports-related documentary and I admittedly was extra fascinated about a tennis documentary as a result of I had simply completed studying Carrie Soto is Back which mainly turned me right into a tennis knowledgeable in a single day. We’ve solely made it by way of two episodes thus far however it’s been fascinating. I hope the documentary will share extra concerning the athletes’ coaching in future episodes however it’s nonetheless cool to see what goes by way of the minds of a handful of the perfect tennis gamers on this planet as they strategy large matches.

At the moment Reapplying: Laneige Lip Mask

Have you ever guys heard of this lip masks? It blew up the web and have become an influencer and movie star favourite however since I apparently dwell underneath a rock, I solely just lately heard about it. The idea sounded nice: Apply a thick smear of this lip masks to your lips earlier than mattress, let it sink in in a single day and awake to smooth, hydrated lips. It took all of 1 utility of these things for me to adore it. First, it tastes implausible. The berry taste is subtly candy and pleasant. Second, it feels wonderful on my lips… so wonderful that I’ve began carrying it round with me in my bag as a result of I don’t need to solely use it at night time time. The tiniest quantity goes a great distance and I’m lovinggg these items!

At the moment Impressed By: Ryan’s rising haircut expertise!

For the previous few months, Ryan has been chopping the boys’ hair. Each month he picks up new tips and expertise and whereas he’ll be the primary to say their haircuts don’t appear to be they’re performed by knowledgeable, I feel he’s been doing an superior job!! Plus, something that saves us from popping into Nice Clips each 6 weeks for a trim feels like a superb factor to me. I’m hoping it’s one thing he’ll proceed to do and luxuriate in as a result of the boys appear to suppose Dad haircuts are the good and I feel they appear fairly cute, too!!

At the moment Can’t Imagine: I’ll have FOUR mornings to myself this coming fall.

I simply submitted preschool registrations for the autumn and Rhett and Ryder can be attending preschool 4 mornings every week. Chase can be in second grade so he’ll be at school Monday by way of Friday and I can’t imagine I’ll have 4 3.5-hour stretches of time to myself 4 mornings every week starting in September. Whaaaat is that this magic!?

I’ll be utilizing this time largely to work on this weblog however dannng I’m simply so pumped for some constant mornings to myself. I additionally know 3.5 hours will fly by however you higher imagine I’ve mastered the power to pump out a bunch of labor in a minimal period of time since having children. You already know the saying, “If you’d like one thing performed, give it to a busy individual?” Properly, I wholeheartedly agree with that as a result of mothers and busy individuals by some means simply how tips on how to get it performed. 4 3.5 hour stretches of time the place no baby wants me through the week sounds magical to my mind that presently appears to dwell in a state of multitasking and child chaos.

At the moment Crafting: Perler bead creations

Affectionately known as “melty beads” in our home, our huge children can’t get sufficient of Perler beads these days. They’ve created every little thing from ocean animals and online game controllers to patterned shapes, canines, birds, vehicles and extra with these items. I additionally oddly discover this exercise stress-free and can be part of within the enjoyable, too, so it’s been an effective way to spend some calm high quality time with the boys.

Additionally, I owe an enormous thanks to Becca for recommending Biggie Beads to me! Rhett at all times tries to do melty beads along with his huge brothers however can’t actually make actual creations but and Biggie Beads seem to be a significantly better match for him. They’re the identical Perler beads our boys love solely BIGGER! I ordered some for Rhett to strive together with some patterns he can comply with they usually’re set to reach right now!

At the moment Studying: The Address by Fiona Davis

I’ve been immersed on this planet of thrillers these days however historic fiction will at all times have my coronary heart. I’ve cherished Fiona Davis’ historic fiction novels prior to now and simply started studying The Handle earlier this week. It’s somewhat gradual to start out however I can already really feel it choosing up steam so my hopes are excessive!

At the moment Making: Perfect M&M Cookies

We first tried these cookies when considered one of Chase’s associates introduced them to our home throughout a playdate over the vacations they usually blew us away. I’ve made so many M&M cookies through the years they usually’ve all fallen somewhat wanting my expectations however THESE are implausible!!! We’ve made them a handful of occasions and whereas I do favor them with mini M&Ms just like the recipe requires, they work with common M&Ms as nicely which I’ve performed a couple of occasions once I need to use seasonal coloured M&Ms. One necessary word: The dough looks like it is perhaps somewhat dry and crumbly if you combine it however maintain mixing!!! The dough will ultimately come collectively and develop into tremendous thick. One little tip: I like to recommend under-baking them a bit for max tastiness.

At the moment Sipping: Yogi Egyptian Licorice Mint Tea

Aka my all-time favourite tea.

Random tea-related story: One night time when Chase couldn’t sleep, he got here downstairs to seek out Ryan making himself a mug of Sleepytime tea with our electric kettle. Ryan made Chase a mug, too, and he sipped it whereas we learn Harry Potter collectively. Chase will now ask for “tea and tales” after his little brothers go to mattress if he can’t sleep. (He even makes the signal of the letter “T” along with his fingers and winks at us once we tuck him in similtaneously Ryder on Friday or Saturday nights as a result of he is aware of these are nights he’s allowed to remain up somewhat later.) It’s lovable and by some means makes Chase seem to be somewhat child and a youngster to me.
