At the moment: February 2023 – Peanut Butter Fingers

I simply checked and it seems to be just like the final time I shared a “Currently” themed weblog submit on this house was in July of final 12 months. We had been smack-dab in the midst of shifting mayhem, residing in Florida for 30 days and life was very a lot up within the air. Issues can change so much in seven months and we’re now in our new residence and greater than a month into the brand new 12 months. I’d say it’s time for an additional At the moment replace! Let’s get to it! Right here’s a bit of peek into what’s occurring over right here these days… At the moment-style!

At the moment: February 2023

At the moment 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 exhibits however after I heard about Break Level, I discussed it to Ryan and we gave it a shot after the boys had been in mattress final weekend. Ryan will watch any sports-related documentary and I admittedly was extra involved in a tennis documentary as a result of I had simply completed studying Carrie Soto is Back which principally turned me right into a tennis professional in a single day. We’ve solely made it by means of two episodes to this point nevertheless it’s been attention-grabbing. I’m hoping the documentary will share extra concerning the athletes’ coaching in future episodes nevertheless it’s nonetheless cool to see what goes by means of the minds of a handful of the very best tennis gamers on this planet as they method enormous matches.

At the moment Reapplying: Laneige Lip Mask

Have you ever guys heard of this lip masks? It blew up the web and have become an influencer and movie star favourite however since I apparently stay below a rock, I solely just 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 delicate, hydrated lips. It took all of 1 utility of these things for me to like it. First, it tastes improbable. The berry taste is subtly candy and pleasant. Second, it feels wonderful on my lips… so wonderful that I’ve began carrying it round with me in my bag as a result of I don’t need to solely use it at night time time. The tiniest quantity goes a great distance and I’m lovinggg these things!

At the moment Impressed By: Ryan’s growing haircut expertise!

For the previous few months, Ryan has been reducing the boys’ hair. Each month he picks up new methods and expertise and whereas he’ll be the primary to say their haircuts don’t seem like they’re achieved 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 seems like a great 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!!

At the moment Can’t Imagine: I’ll have FOUR mornings to myself this coming fall.

I simply submitted preschool registrations for the autumn and Rhett and Ryder will probably be attending preschool 4 mornings per week. Chase will probably be in second grade so he’ll be at school Monday by means of Friday and I can not consider I’ll have 4 3.5-hour stretches of time to myself 4 mornings per week starting in September. Whaaaat is that this magic!?

I’ll be utilizing this time largely 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. the saying, “If you’d like one thing achieved, give it to a busy individual?” Nicely, I wholeheartedly agree with that as a result of mothers and busy folks by some means simply how methods to get it achieved. 4 3.5 hour stretches of time the place no little one wants me in the course of the week sounds magical to my mind that at the moment appears to stay in a state of multitasking and child chaos.

At the moment Crafting: Perler bead creations

Affectionately known as “melty beads” in our home, our massive children can not get sufficient of Perler beads these days. They’ve created every thing from ocean animals and online game controllers to patterned shapes, canine, birds, vehicles and extra with this stuff. I additionally oddly discover this exercise enjoyable and can be a part of within the enjoyable, too, so it’s been a good 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 all the time 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 comply with and so they’re set to reach right this moment!

At the moment Studying: The Address by Fiona Davis

I’ve been immersed on this planet of thrillers these days however historic fiction will all the time 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 a bit of sluggish to begin however I can already really feel it choosing up steam so my hopes are excessive!

At the moment 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 over time and so they’ve all fallen a bit of wanting my expectations however THESE are improbable!!! We’ve made them a handful of occasions and whereas I do choose them with mini M&Ms just like the recipe requires, they work with common M&Ms as nicely which I’ve achieved a number of occasions after I need to use seasonal coloured M&Ms. One necessary be aware: The dough looks like it may be a bit of dry and crumbly once you combine it however hold mixing!!! The dough will ultimately come collectively and develop into tremendous thick. One little tip: I like to recommend under-baking them a bit for optimum tastiness.

At the moment Sipping: Yogi Egyptian Licorice Mint Tea

Aka my all-time favourite tea.

Random tea-related story: One night time 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 fingers and winks at us once we tuck him in concurrently Ryder on Friday or Saturday nights as a result of he is aware of these are nights he’s allowed to remain up a bit of later.) It’s cute and by some means makes Chase appear to be a bit of child and a young person all of sudden to me.
