about me, currently


Loving: The Beau and The Belle is out today and available on Amazon!!! You guys, this book was SO CUTE!!! The author was kind enough to include me in the ARC, and now I am hooked on her. She seems so cool, like someone I could definitely be friends with! This book reads like a romantic comedy. I absolutely loved Beau and Lauren. It takes place in New Orleans and has me itching for a trip down there! I cant say enough good things. You can purchase it for just 99 cents on kindle here!

Reading: I am having a bit of book hangover with The Beau and The Bell to be honest. I want more of those characters! I am finishing up The Gods in Alabama right now.

Gods in Alabama

Watching: To be honest, a lot of Puppy Dog Pals and Vamparina. Zoe has shown interest in TV now, especially if there is singing involved. She drops everything the moment she hears the intro song to these two shows. She also loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Mickey and the Roadster Racers. We have been home sick, so she has been getting more screen time than usual. Judge away.

Working: I have been slowly getting our kitchen organized. I redid the pantry, again, last week. Yesterday, I started going through a few cabinets and getting rid of miss-matched shit that we never use. I also packed up most of Zoe’s bottles. She really only takes one right before bed now, the rest of the time she drinks water out of a cup. It was bittersweet packing those up! Next I want to tackle the two random cabinets that house appliances like the toaster, waffle maker, mixer, etc.

Cooking: For breakfast, I have been back on my coconut flour muffins. I got this recipe from Kathy a few years ago, and it is sooooooo easy and quick!!! I dont have a lot of time to spend on cooking in the mornings, and this comes together and ready to eat in under five minutes.

1 egg

1 teaspoon coconut flour

1 tablespoon almond milk (could use regular or coconut)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon maple syrup (when I was on whole 30, I left this out and it still tasted good)

Whisk all that together in a bowl, grease a ramekin with coconut oil and cook in microwave for 2 minutes. BOOM! Done! I really love it with homemade apple butter spread on top too!

Planning: Laura and I have a craft day schedule for this Saturday, as long as both our kids can stay healthy. Sheesh. Planning anything when you are a parent is hard. You can’t predict when your kid is going to be riddled with nasty daycare germs…or is being a toddler with a tantrum. You know? Anyways, we have plans to craft marble trays (thanks Elle!!!!)for us, and we  have a few crafts for the kids to do for Valentine’s Day! We are also going to make sugar cookies and let them decorate. I cannot wait!!!

Life: I have been working from home the last two days with a sick Zoe. Again. You guys!!! Seriously! I just want one full week at daycare with a healthy Zoe and no snow days! I feel like I should get a refund for at least half a month with how much we are gone. Her ear infection from last week came back with a vengeance Tuesday morning. She seemed to be feeling better by the afternoon, but we didn’t go back to school until this morning. It looked like there were several other kids out as well. Oh, and I realized about 5 minutes away from daycare that I forgot to give her the medicine this morning. I had to turn around and drive the 20 minutes back home to get it and go back out. Sheesh. Have I mentioned that I am so over cold and flu season already??? I am basically behind on everything so bare with me. I got to say, I didn’t hate all the snuggles I have gotten over the last few days from my sweet sweet girl.

I am linking up with Kristen and Gretch for What’s New With You. Let me know what you have going on!

    Oh noo, poor Zoe! Hopefully she can kick this sickness once and for all– definitely ready for cold/flu season to be over! Book hangovers are the worst, and I’m obviously not up to date on any kids shows but Vamparina sounds so cute. A craft day sounds like so much fun- I can’t wait to see how your trays turn out. I asked this in my post from today, but can you taste the maple syrup in things when you use it as a sweetener?

    Aw, poor little girl. I hate this time of the year for all the sickness going around. I’m so jealous of your craft day! That sounds like so much fun.

    I am so sorry that Zoe is sick again! Poor girl 🙁

    Thankfully the girls haven’t gotten sick yet, but I know that it’s only a matter of time before they get their first daycare crud! And hooray for reorganizing! We did that in our kitchen before the girls got here and it was amazing. And I just packed up the girls newborn clothes and it was so sad! It’s just amazing how fast they grow up!

    Your craft day sounds like so much fun!
    I remember last year when my kids were 3 & 1 it was mid-February before we had a day that neither kid was sick, and it lasted about two days before the next cold came home. SO MUCH SNOT! If only you could package and sell it we’d be rich. This year the kids have been so much healthier – I think those 0-2 is when they are the most susceptible to pick up every single germ.

    Alice has started showing interest in TV, too! She’s a big fan of Sesame Street! I hope Zoe feels better soon!

    I’m actually a little jealous of you guys with little kids because you get the reboot of the Muppet Babies. Although, if I’m being honest, I’m still going to watch it.

    Hope she feels better soon!

    The Beau and The Belle sounds sweet!

    I hate that she’s sick again! Sickness has been running rampant around here, too. I’m sure it’s a lot to do with the up and down weather everyone has been having! Can’t wait to see how your trays turn out. That sounds like the most fun day!

    A daycare or school somewhere close to me is closed because 1/3 of their students have been diagnosed with flue/sickness, it was on the news a few days ago! So crazy.

    Those muffins sound so good and whaaaat? Baby girl is sick again, dang germs and bug season! I hope you guys can have a good weekend! Hugs!

  • Reply Laura February 2, 2018 at 10:49 am

    since he’s bouncing around like a crazy man, I’m going to assume we’re still good for our craft and cookie day!! I’ll make those damn muffins one of these days!

  • Reply Dani February 2, 2018 at 3:42 pm

    Wow, I can’t believe The Mickey Mouse club is STILL on! I remember watching that as a kid! Your craft day sounds like fun, especially since you get the kids crafty as well. Hope Zoe feels better soon, and you get a break too!
