Now for March’s “currently” post…because nothing that interesting has occurred in the past few days, and because, well, it’s a new month.
LOVING: The 14-months-old age. I told Dom the other night that I think this is my favorite age Isla has been yet. Sure, we have to deal with temper tantrums and a whole lot of boundary-testing, but I just think she is so fun and so sweet right now. The nonstop hugs, kisses, and cuddles are something I never want to leave, and I’m almost sad for her to get a little older because I really think she is perfect right now. I love that she’s learning to talk, giggles at everything, and her drunken sailor walking. I can’t wait to have 50 (or just one) more children.
READING: Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table by Shauna Niequist. And I can’t stop. It’s not a read I’m speeding through, but that’s only because I really want to take in every chapter. I love what she shares about her life (from kids to life lessons to important events) and how she incorporates a favorite home-cooked recipe into almost every chapter. She writes beautifully, and I know I will be really sad to finish this. Definitely a book I would buy (I borrowed it from the library). For more of my favorite books, follow me on Goodreads!
WATCHING: House of Cards season 3 on Netflix. And who isn’t? (Note: if you answer “me” to this question, you may want to reevaluate your TV-watching activities.) While it’s not as action-packed as seasons 1-2, I’m really into what’s up with Doug right now. Also, did anyone else have a weird moment where they thought Claire might be pregnant? Because we did. We are also watching The Following (Mark is super dysfunctional, and I miss Lily and her beautiful face/hair/everything), and I’m, as usual, watching The Bachelor and Pretty Little Liars.
ANTICIPATING: Like last month, I’m looking forward to this trip to Ohio at the end of the month. Baby showers and hair cuts and family, oh my! Plus, my birthday is the 29th. Always a reason for anticipation and celebration. I’m also really excited to take Isla swimming this summer and to build her a swingset in the backyard.
LISTENING TO: A whole lot of throwbacks. Shakira, Mary J. Blige, Destiny’s Child, and Christina. Check out the #throwbackthursday playlist by Spotify. Isla and I sing it a lot in the car.
PLANNING: Business ventures! Last month was more successful in freelancing than I expected, and I’m really excited for some upcoming projects.
WORKING ON: Gardening. It’s almost that time. And (Mom and Dad, you’ll think this is gross) Dom and I are getting chickens! Both for the eggs and life lessons for Isla. And because we’ve always wanted them. And because we are wannabe farmer hippies.
WISHING: It would just consistently warm up…though I’m not totally ready for the 90-100 degree temperatures we are sure to have in roughly a month or two.
Anyone have book/Netflix/Hulu recommendations?
