currently (april 2018)

I haven’t done one of these “currently” posts in almost two years! I thought it’d be an easy and fun way to write something, because although I really love posting on here, it’s just been really hard with how nauseous I’ve been these past couple of weeks.

Reading… In March, I read The Secret Life of Bees (by Sue Monk Kidd), which was great, and then Lauren Graham’s Talking As Fast As I Can. I practically laughed my way all the way through this one, and it felt so good to have an easy, fun read.Now I’m working on All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot, but it’s taking me a little longer to get through it!

Making…This little crochet puppy for Kaelyn! I already made a cat for Kaya, and honestly, I started this puppy back in February, but just kind of lost motivation to work on it. Maybe posting here will give me a little more accountability!

Planning… Our new little princess’ baby blanket. I haven’t started, and I feel like I’m running out of time, but I won’t let myself begin until the aforementioned puppy project is completed. I’m really loving this pattern right now:

Shopping… For picture frames! I ordered some of these from Target, but half of them arrived damaged. Bummer! We are still in the process of rearranging the living room, but I need to start hanging things somewhere, even if it’s on a really small scale.

Counting down… The days until our due date! We have just under 100 days to go, and I’m feeling kind of impatient. It seems like so many people just had babies in the past month, and I’m swooning over all their newborn pictures. If she has cheeks like Nella, watch out, I might never stop kissing her sweet little face.

Finishing up… Our kindergarten curriculum! We have already completed our math and moved on to the first grade books, and we’re only about 20 pages out from being done with our language arts. I can almost taste summer, and I think we are all ready for a little break!
