At the moment: February 2023 – Peanut Butter Fingers

I simply checked and it seems to be just like the final time I shared a “Currently” themed weblog put up on this area was in July of final yr. We had been smack-dab in the course of transferring mayhem, dwelling in Florida for 30 days and life was very a lot up within the air. Issues can change rather a lot in seven months and we’re now in our new residence 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 a bit of peek into what’s taking place over right here recently… 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’m going months and months between exhibits however once I heard about Break Level, I discussed it to Ryan and we gave it a shot after the boys had been in mattress final weekend. Ryan will watch any sports-related documentary and I admittedly was extra keen on a tennis documentary as a result of I had simply completed studying Carrie Soto is Back which mainly turned me right into a tennis professional in a single day. We’ve solely made it by two episodes up to now 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 the minds of a handful of one of the best tennis gamers on the 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 celeb favourite however since I apparently stay beneath a rock, I solely not too long ago 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 gentle, hydrated lips. It took all of 1 software of these things for me to find it irresistible. First, it tastes incredible. 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 wish to solely use it at night time time. The tiniest quantity goes a good distance and I’m lovinggg these things!

At the moment Impressed By: Ryan’s rising 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 seem like they’re achieved 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 appears like 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 assume Dad haircuts are the best and I believe they give the impression of being fairly cute, too!!

At the moment Can’t Consider: 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 every week. Chase will probably be in second grade so he’ll be in class Monday by Friday and I can’t consider 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 principally 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 consider I’ve mastered the flexibility to pump out a bunch of labor in a minimal period of time since having children. You realize the saying, “If you need one thing achieved, 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 find out how to get it achieved. 4 3.5 hour stretches of time the place no youngster wants me in the course of the week sounds magical to my mind that at the moment 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 recently. They’ve created every thing from ocean animals and online game controllers to patterned shapes, canine, birds, vehicles and extra with this stuff. I additionally oddly discover this exercise enjoyable and can be part of within the enjoyable, too, so it’s been a good 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 all the time tries to do melty beads along with his massive brothers however can’t actually make actual creations but and Biggie Beads look like a significantly better match for him. They’re the identical Perler beads our boys love solely BIGGER! I ordered some for Rhett to attempt together with some patterns he can comply with they usually’re set to reach at this time!

At the moment Studying: The Address by Fiona Davis

I’ve been immersed on the planet of thrillers recently however historic fiction will all the time have my coronary heart. I’ve liked Fiona Davis’ historic fiction novels up to now and simply started studying The Tackle earlier this week. It’s a bit of sluggish to begin 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 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 a bit of in need of my expectations however THESE are incredible!!! We’ve made them a handful of occasions and whereas I do desire them with mini M&Ms just like the recipe requires, they work with common M&Ms as nicely which I’ve achieved a couple of occasions once I wish to use seasonal coloured M&Ms. One vital be aware: The dough looks like it may be a bit of dry and crumbly while you combine it however hold mixing!!! The dough will ultimately come collectively and change into tremendous thick. One little tip: I like to recommend under-baking them a bit for optimum 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 arms and winks at us after 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 a bit of later.) It’s cute and by some means makes Chase look like a bit of child and a youngster suddenly to me.
