Presently: February 2023 – Peanut Butter Fingers

I simply checked and it seems to be just like the final time I shared a “Currently” themed weblog publish on this house was in July of final 12 months. We have been smack-dab in the midst of shifting mayhem, dwelling in Florida for 30 days and life was very a lot up within the air. Issues can change loads 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 Presently replace! Let’s get to it! Right here’s somewhat peek into what’s taking place over right here these days… Presently-style!

Presently: February 2023

Presently 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 concerned 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 knowledgeable in a single day. We’ve solely made it by two episodes to date nevertheless it’s been fascinating. I’m hoping the documentary will share extra in regards to the athletes’ coaching in future episodes nevertheless it’s nonetheless cool to see what goes by the minds of a handful of one of the best tennis gamers on this planet as they method large matches.

Presently 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 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 mushy, hydrated lips. It took all of 1 utility of these items for me to like it. First, it tastes improbable. 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 great distance and I’m lovinggg these items!

Presently Impressed By: Ryan’s growing haircut abilities!

For the previous few months, Ryan has been reducing 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 carried out by knowledgeable, 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 a very good 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 feel they give the impression of being fairly cute, too!!

Presently 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 might be attending preschool 4 mornings every week. Chase might 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 power to pump out a bunch of labor in a minimal period of time since having children. You already know the saying, “If you would like one thing carried out, give it to a busy particular person?” Effectively, I wholeheartedly agree with that as a result of mothers and busy folks someway simply how easy methods to get it carried out. 4 3.5 hour stretches of time the place no youngster wants me throughout the week sounds magical to my mind that at present appears to stay in a state of multitasking and child chaos.

Presently Crafting: Perler bead creations

Affectionately known as “melty beads” in our home, our massive children can’t get sufficient of Perler beads these days. They’ve created every little thing from ocean animals and online game controllers to patterned shapes, canine, birds, vehicles and extra with these items. I additionally oddly discover this exercise enjoyable and can be a 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 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 observe and so they’re set to reach in the present day!

Presently Studying: The Address by Fiona Davis

I’ve been immersed on this planet of thrillers these days however historic fiction will at all times have my coronary heart. I’ve liked Fiona Davis’ historic fiction novels prior to now and simply started studying The Deal with earlier this week. It’s somewhat gradual to begin however I can already really feel it selecting up steam so my hopes are excessive!

Presently Making: Perfect M&M Cookies

We first tried these cookies when certainly one of Chase’s pals 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 somewhat wanting my expectations however THESE are improbable!!! We’ve made them a handful of instances and whereas I do want them with mini M&Ms just like the recipe requires, they work with common M&Ms as effectively which I’ve carried out just a few instances once I wish to use seasonal coloured M&Ms. One vital notice: The dough looks as if it is likely to be somewhat dry and crumbly once you combine it however preserve mixing!!! The dough will finally come collectively and turn out to be tremendous thick. One little tip: I like to recommend under-baking them a bit for max tastiness.

Presently 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 somewhat later.) It’s lovable and someway makes Chase appear to be somewhat child and a young person all of sudden to me.
