WHW: Currently....

Currently, I'm....

Reading ...
Flash by Tim Tigner; I'm only about 10% of the way in though. I got it for cheap on Amazon a couple of weeks ago and so far it's alright
Watching ...
Other than standard Bravo shows (Vanderpump, RHOBH, Summer House), MG and I have been watching the Black Mirror series on Netflix. I like that they're all stories that make you think, and also separate of one another so you can pick and choose without having to watch one after the other in a row.
On the menu this week:
Monday: Sun-Dried Tomato and Feta meatloaf
Tuesday: Greek Roasted Tilapia
Wednesday: Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup (new!)
Thursday: One Pot Broccoli Pesto Pasta
Friday: eating out

Looking forward to ... 
MG's mom coming into town on Friday for the weekend. Unfortunately his dad can't make it because of tax season craziness, but it'll be so nice to have my MIL in town!

coffee coffee coffee, especially yesterday when Ella had a nice hour long middle of the night wake up from 3:40-4:45. Fun times!

that our bear is feeling better. Turns out she had roseola (something I'd never heard of until having a kid). Her fever broke on Monday and a rash appeared. So, thankfully she's on the mend! Here's a pic of her in her strawberry jammies from yesterday morning:
that some guy hit my mom's car in the Costco parking lot AND LEFT! Luckily someone there saw his license plate and wrote it down, and then stuck around until my mom got to her car. The guy, who was an older man, admitted to the police officer that he hit the car and left, and then called my mom and apologized. It really makes me mad that ANYONE would do this. At the very least, you leave a note with your information. Thank goodness someone was there to see it. The cop recommended the guy be re-evaluated for his license, so at least something is being done, sort of...

that Ella is starting to want to stand more, and with support, is moving her feet towards things (sort of walking?) She's still only army crawling from time to time, but maybe she'll skip that and go straight to walking!
Which means we'll need to babyproof like ASAP...so maybe I shouldn't say I'm excited after all lol

Wanting ...
our dining room set to be delivered closer to the 2 week window, as opposed to the 6 week window. I'm so pumped about this set! (A guy coworker of mine who is 23 or 24 did not understand the excitement level but all of my girl friends did haha)

Wearing ...
Warm weather things since the temps have been in the 60s the last few days, and are sticking around the high 40s and high 50s the rest of the week.

Grateful For...

Now it's YOUR turn to link up and share what's hap-"pinning" with you!


  1. Ella and I are on a similar sleep schedule - I was up yesterday for an hour for no reason LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. So glad Ella is better! Ughh how annoying of that guy to just leave after hitting your Moms car!!! So awesome someone stuck around and got his info. I swear, some people

  3. omg ella's jammies i cannot. also what are you thinking about black mirror? let's discuss. i've watched it all and clearly have some i love and some are meh. but yes. so good. also that is so messed up about your moms car. that happened to me a couple years ago at a busy gas station with people ALL around and NO one said anything and that angered me more than the hit and run. even when i asked around people ignored me. ANYWAY i'm off on a tangent haha. hope you have a good rest of the week!

  4. What an interesting situation about your Mom's car - wow! So neat that someone stuck around though! Glad little E is doing better and I miss jammies like that soooo much! LOVE the new dining set friend! eeek!

  5. Amen for good citizens who still around. Total unsolicited mom advice, but you want her to crawl before she walks. 1. to give you more time and 2. its good for their development and fine motor skills from what I have read. Glad she is back to feeling better and hopefully you are too and everyone can get some much needed sleep. jealous about the dining table. We need a new one, but are waiting until we move someday.

  6. I had roseola when I was a baby too, my mom still tells the story of running into the doctor freaking out and I am almost 40! I love the dining set, adulting makes it funny what makes you excited, eh? I am so glad the culprit was found and he apologized, I cannot believe people!

  7. I'm glad Ella is feeling much better! I didn't even know that people could still get roseola! I think that's one of those old sicknesses that kids used to get back in the 50s and 60s, isn't it?

  8. I hate the wait for a new piece of furniture! Hopefully it comes on the earlier side - always so exciting when it arrives!

  9. Ugh-- waiting for furniture is like waiting for the microwave... FOREVER!! Glad Ella is on the mend (again) and such a cute lil strawberry bum!!! XOXO, R

  10. Hooray for your MIL's upcoming visit and that your little sweetie is feeling better! So sorry to hear about your mom's car. That was great that someone saw it and took down the info! Enjoy your new dining set when it arrives!

  11. I really need to start watching Black Mirror! I've heard such good things about it.

  12. I can’t believe someone did that to your moms car, what a jerk! Glad they got his license plate!

  13. Alice has the same strawberry pajamas! I just love them!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
