I am/have been currently....

 

Blogging...

I know.  duh.  But I've been attempting to blog almost every day.  Even the little stuff.  I'm attempting to turn to blogging rather than the mainstream social media.  It just makes more sense.
I'm also trying to decide the direction I want this blog to go.  Do I want to keep it as more of a "journal" blog?  Do I want to continue to make it mostly a "mommy" blog?  I read the other day, that one thing that helped someone grow their blog is when they ventured outside the "mommy blog box"... it stopped me in my tracks.  I mean, that's basically why I blog - as a sort of memory keeping of my days as a mommy and wife.  So while I'm ok with that, sure I've had aspirations of growing my blog and actually making some money doing this.  So for now... I'll keep on just doing as I'm doing... mommy blogging.  and see where my passions take me.

Enjoying...

We have really been enjoying the last bit of this season of life!  The time when we are a family of three, all home together, is so enjoyable!  I know I will miss it!  I'm not saying that once Hayden gets here, life won't be wonderful.  But I remember clearly missing, occasionally, the moments when it was easy and just the two of us after Harper was born.

Today, we woke up to about 5 inches of snow... the white, fluffy, pretty kind!  Rob just happened to be home with us for half of the day today, so we cuddled in bed extra long, sipped on coffee, watched the snow fall out of our bedroom window, and just breathed it all in!  After breakfast, we all bundled up and headed out side with Rob to shovel snow... well, he shoveled and we threw snowballs at him.  He and Harper made snow angels.  Harper and Lilly chased one another around.  We attempted a snowman...but the snow is soooo powdery and fluffy!  Maybe tomorrow after it gets a little more damp!

 

Planning...

Or the lack there of... Harper's second birthday.  This one is going to be much different than the last.  Her last was full of pinterest ideas and just well, adorable... if I do say so myself.  This year, it will be cute, it will be fun - but I don't even know when we are having it yet.  ha!  She will have store bought cupcakes, decorations (maybe), and probably just family.  This mama is tired! 

Growing....

Today was the first day that Harper sat in my lap to read a book that I noticed Hayden was obviously in the way and taking up lap room.  It was cute, sad, and uncomfortable all at the same time!!!  I counted today, and if she is 2 weeks early like Harper - we have 9weeks left.  TWO MONTHS PEOPLE!!! like not skimping, not rounding, not averaging... two months! 


 

 

 Creating...

Rob had a magnificent idea a week or so ago, to turn our underneath the stairs closet into a "playhouse" for the girls!!  While the fact that the storage in that area will go away gives me a little anxiety, haha, I'm so excited!  And I'm even more excited to see him so excited about it!  He and Harper went shopping yesterday for supplies.  And he and his dad will be working on it this weekend and the beginning of next week.  SO EXCITING!!! 

 

 

 

Making a Mess....

I think I might have shared that Harper's new favorite thing is to take EVERYTHING from her room and put in in our living room.  Well, now she and daddy have started making "tents"!  She loves it! But man oh man is it messy!! haha!  But I clearly remember making tents with my dad when I was little and it was some of my best memories! So here's to making memories!!
