At the moment: February 2023 – Peanut Butter Fingers

I simply checked and it appears just like the final time I shared a “Currently” themed weblog submit on this house was in July of final yr. We have been smack-dab in the course of shifting mayhem, dwelling in Florida for 30 days and life was very a lot up within the air. Issues can change lots in seven months and we’re now in our new dwelling and greater than a month into the brand new yr. I’d say it’s time for an additional At the moment replace! Let’s get to it! Right here’s slightly peek into what’s taking place over right here currently… 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 after 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 excited by a tennis documentary as a result of I had simply completed studying Carrie Soto is Back which principally turned me right into a tennis skilled in a single day. We’ve solely made it by way of two episodes thus far but it surely’s been attention-grabbing. I hope the documentary will share extra in regards to the athletes’ coaching in future episodes but it surely’s nonetheless cool to see what goes by way of the minds of a handful of the perfect tennis gamers on the planet as they method big 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 superstar favourite however since I apparently stay beneath 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 delicate, hydrated lips. It took all of 1 software of these items for me to adore it. First, it tastes implausible. The berry taste is subtly candy and pleasant. Second, it feels superb on my lips… so superb that I’ve began carrying it round with me in my bag as a result of I don’t wish to solely use it at evening time. The tiniest quantity goes a good distance and I’m lovinggg these items!

At the moment Impressed By: Ryan’s growing haircut abilities!

For the previous few months, Ryan has been chopping the boys’ hair. Each month he picks up new tips and abilities and whereas he’ll be the primary to say their haircuts don’t appear to be they’re carried out by knowledgeable, I believe 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 great 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 believe 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 will probably be attending preschool 4 mornings per week. Chase will probably 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 per 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 flexibility to pump out a bunch of labor in a minimal period of time since having children. You understand the saying, “If you’d like one thing carried out, give it to a busy particular person?” Nicely, I wholeheartedly agree with that as a result of mothers and busy individuals in some way simply how find out how to get it carried out. 4 3.5 hour stretches of time the place no little one wants me through the week sounds magical to my mind that presently appears to stay in a state of multitasking and child chaos.

At the moment Crafting: Perler bead creations

Affectionately known as “melty beads” in our home, our massive children can’t get sufficient of Perler beads currently. They’ve created all the pieces from ocean animals and online game controllers to patterned shapes, canine, 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 together with his massive brothers however can’t actually make actual creations but and Biggie Beads appear to be a a lot 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 and so they’re set to reach at present!

At the moment Studying: The Address by Fiona Davis

I’ve been immersed on the planet of thrillers currently however historic fiction will at all times have my coronary heart. I’ve beloved Fiona Davis’ historic fiction novels previously and simply started studying The Handle earlier this week. It’s slightly gradual to start out however I can already really feel it selecting up steam so my hopes are excessive!

At the moment Making: Perfect M&M Cookies

We first tried these cookies when one in all Chase’s associates introduced them to our home throughout a playdate over the vacations and so they blew us away. I’ve made so many M&M cookies through the years and so they’ve all fallen slightly in need of my expectations however THESE are implausible!!! We’ve made them a handful of instances 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 carried out a couple of instances after I wish to use seasonal coloured M&Ms. One vital observe: The dough looks like it is perhaps slightly dry and crumbly once you combine it however hold mixing!!! The dough will finally come collectively and grow to be 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 evening when Chase couldn’t sleep, he got here downstairs to search 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” together with his arms 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 slightly later.) It’s cute and in some way makes Chase appear to be slightly child and a young person suddenly to me.
