Currently: September

This month, I'm jumping in on the "Currently" link-up with Jenna at Gold and Bloom and Anne at In Residence.  :-)  It's a fun, easy little link-up concept, and I'm looking forward to getting to know and checking in with some lovely ladies in this community :-)  

So these are the things I'm reading, making, pinning, anticipating, and loving currently...

Reading: There is a book club within my twin mom club, and we read one book per season.  The autumn book is The Girl on the Train, so I have that on my phone and just need to start on it :-)  I used to get a fair amount of reading done during overnight bottle time, but as the babies get older and are dropping overnight feeds, I'm chatting with them more instead of trying to keep them half-asleep ;-)  

Making:  This is the most recent thing I've made... I've been looking for a twin mom shirt around the internet, but all the ones I've seen have either been SUPER expensive (which I understand, but still can't justify spending), aggressive (because, guys, I know twin moms are awesome, BUT SO ARE SINGLETON moms, so be nice!), and/or use "Mama" instead of "Momma."  So... I grabbed a cute, inexpensive tee from Kohl's (on sale for $7, I had an extra 15% off, and actually just spent Kohl's cash) and made my own with my Silhouette Cameo!  Fun!  This will probably happen again with a hoodie or something very soon :-)

Pinning:  We're hoping to go to our first carry-in with our new church this month, so I've been pinning dishes I think I might like to bring.  Also, fudge.  Fudge is fun to make, and there are SO many tempting varieties on Pinterest :-)  I have a whole fudge board, and make myself hungry on the daily :-) 

Anticipating:  Robert Hogan of No. 9 Images Photography is coming over on Tuesday to take the twins' 3 month pictures.  I'm excited to have more professional photos of them, and to work with Robert (who did our maternity pictures) again.  But I will admit to being the teensiest stressy about what we'll all wear! 

Loving: I got this super snuggly, lightweight cowl-neck sweater from Kohls... I haven't been able to find it online to link to (or buy more, because I need more of them!).  It's so cozy and flattering and easy to wear... I'm really digging simple clothes lately.  I want to be able to grab almost any top and almost any bottom and have an outfit :-)

  1. I read and enjoyed The Girl on the Train. I can imagine your lack of reading time with twin babies! Love your shirt. I've heard about the that the one that be used for scrapbooking as well?

    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Yep, the silhouette can be used for scrapbooking :-) I've also done vinyl projects (like labeling my canisters), glass etching, card making... and probably other stuff I'm forgetting ;-) Other people have done some of the most incredible things with their machines, but I'm a little timid :-) Pinterest search "silhouette cameo"! I'm always amazed! (Did you know you're a "no-reply blogger"? I usually respond via email, so I hope you come back by and see this!) Have a wonderful day!

  2. What a fun shirt! I love that you DIY-ed it. And I thought that book was a great page turner. Thanks for linking up!
