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 12 months. We have been smack-dab in the midst of shifting mayhem, residing 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 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 slightly peek into what’s taking place 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’m 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 excited about a tennis documentary as a result of I had simply completed studying Carrie Soto is Back which principally turned me right into a tennis professional in a single day. We’ve solely made it via two episodes to date however it’s been attention-grabbing. I hope the documentary will share extra in regards to the athletes’ coaching in future episodes however it’s nonetheless cool to see what goes via the minds of a handful of one of the best tennis gamers on the earth as they strategy 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 reside below 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 tender, hydrated lips. It took all of 1 software of these things for me to find it irresistible. First, it tastes unbelievable. 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 great distance and I’m lovinggg these items!

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 methods and abilities and whereas he’ll be the primary to say their haircuts don’t appear to be they’re completed by an expert, 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 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 suppose Dad haircuts are the good and I feel they give the impression of being 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 in class Monday via Friday and I can not 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 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 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 would like one thing completed, give it to a busy individual?” Effectively, I wholeheartedly agree with that as a result of mothers and busy folks one way or the other simply how easy methods to get it completed. 4 3.5 hour stretches of time the place no little one wants me throughout the week sounds magical to my mind that at present appears to reside 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 not get sufficient of Perler beads these days. They’ve created all the pieces from ocean animals and online game controllers to patterned shapes, canines, 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 together with his huge brothers however can’t actually make actual creations but and Biggie Beads seem 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 attempt together with some patterns he can observe and so they’re set to reach right this moment!

At the moment Studying: The Address by Fiona Davis

I’ve been immersed on the earth of thrillers these days however historic fiction will all the time have my coronary heart. I’ve beloved Fiona Davis’ historic fiction novels prior to now and simply started studying The Deal with earlier this week. It’s slightly 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 one in every of Chase’s buddies 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 over time and so they’ve all fallen slightly in need of my expectations however THESE are unbelievable!!! We’ve made them a handful of instances and whereas I do desire them with mini M&Ms just like the recipe requires, they work with common M&Ms as effectively which I’ve completed a couple of instances once I wish to use seasonal coloured M&Ms. One necessary notice: The dough looks like it may be slightly dry and crumbly while you combine it however preserve 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” together with his palms 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 slightly later.) It’s lovable and one way or the other makes Chase seem to be slightly child and a young person unexpectedly to me.
