Here's a fun link up I've wanted to join but always remember too late ;-) Yay for being reminded early in the day when I still have some blogging time left. :-) I used to participate in a style link up that Shay, Sheaffer, and Mel hosted, so I've followed all these ladies for a while... you should pop over and visit. Sheaffer's Bachelor/ette recaps are way more entertaining to me than the show ever was ;-)
Annnnyyyyway... here's what's up with me!
What we're eating this week:
I'm still recovering from being in the hospital (you can catch up on that on Instagram...), so I'm not much up to cooking. A sweet friend from my twin mom club brought us dinner yesterday, hot for last night, and freezer-ready for tonight (or whenever). I'm really thankful, because I was able to save the energy I could've spent cooking and use it to heal as I spent a little extra time on the couch. <3
What I'm reminiscing about:
Embryo transfer was two years ago this week, and I'm reminiscing about that time and all of the wonderful and intense things that have happened since then! Also the beaches... reminiscing hard about those perfect Barbados beaches.
What I'm loving:
Toast. I cannot get enough of it since I was sick. I'm better now, I can tolerate non-bland stuff, but toast is bordering on an obsession lately ;-)
What we've been up to:
Very little. Ethan took some time off and worked from home some to let me rest and recover... he went back to work on Monday, and I've been doing my best to take care of my SAHM duties. Honestly, some things are falling through the cracks, and I'm pretty much drained of all oomph by 4. So we're not really up to fun extras ;-)
What I'm dreading:
I don't know. I don't really think I AM dreading anything. Hm. That's a nice feeling. :-)
What I'm working on:
I'm working on crossing two more items off my 30 by 30 list... details to come in the next weekish!
Sometimes it just feels good to have a handwritten "to do" list! I decided I wanted my "30 by 30" list where I could see it, instead of just on the Internet. 😊 There may be a small hint as to the next items I plan to cross off in this pic 😉😃 Gear switch: I love @Influenster because they let me try products I've never tried or even heard of. But these pens... I have loved G2 roller ball pens for a long time! They were my preferred and my husband's preferred pen before we met, and I believe they may have even been a topic of conversation on an early date 😂 So, thanks, influenster and @pilotpenusa for a new pretty color to add to my growing collection of favorites!! So smooth, so long-lasting, such fun colors!! #DoYouG2 #contest
What I'm excited about:
My twin mom club just had our big semi-annual consignment sale, and I picked up a play kitchen and play tool bench for our kids for Christmas, in FLAWLESS condition, and a bunch of ball pit balls to turn their old pack-n-play into a ball pit... I don't know how I'm going to hold out for three more months, y'all!
What I'm watching/reading:
We've been marathon-ing NCIS on Netflix... we got behind when Ziva left, so we're trying to catch up. And my counselor recommended this book, which is now sitting on my iPhone, waiting for me to take the time to read it :-) [following link to Amazon is an affiliate link. If you buy this book (or anything else) through my link, it won't cost you extra and will earn me a few cents. :-)]
What I'm listening to:
Loving the Dolly Parton and Pentatonix collaboration! Have you heard it!? I played it yesterday (one time of many), and Abbie scooted up next to me and watched it raptly, chin on her little fist. Didn't even try to take my phone away!! I love that she appreciates good music.
What I'm wearing:
Pajamas and loungewear, honestly. :-) When I do put real clothes on, I'm loving graphic tees from some of my favorite small shops, and I'm having fun playing with the jewelry from my first Rocksbox. Have you heard of them?! SO cool! It's a subscription box, and they send you three pieces of jewelry at a time (after a thorough quiz and process so your stylist can learn about your taste), and you can borrow those pieces as long or as briefly as you want. You can also opt to buy a piece if you fall in love with it, below retail price. It's only $19 a month, no matter how often you switch out your box, which I think is a great bargain! But if you want an even BETTER bargain, try a month free, no obligations, no risk, with code "alwayskatiexoxo"!
What I'm doing this weekend:
My husband's college homecoming! We always have a good time and get to catch up with some of his best friends and their spouses and kids, who we don't get to see nearly often enough! Anybody wanna take bets on who gets tired and cranky first, though. the kids or me? ;-)
What I'm looking forward to next month:
In the next month, I'm hoping to have crossed three more things off my 30 by 30 list, the two mentioned above, plus meeting Rebecca in person for the first time! The internet and blogging world are so funny... I've met two of my three best friends through blogging, and I've only actually met one of those two in person. Working on fixing that!!
What else is new?:
Oh! I get to be a regular contributor at Her View From Home! I'm super excited about that!!
I'd love for you to answer some of these questions for yourself in the comments! Or if you're a blogger, link up to Shay, Sheaffer and Mel and drop me a link to your post. :-) Have a happy rest of your week, friends!
