At present: February 2023 – Peanut Butter Fingers

I simply checked and it seems to be just like the final time I shared a “Currently” themed weblog put up on this area was in July of final yr. We had been smack-dab in the course of shifting mayhem, dwelling in Florida for 30 days and life was very a lot up within the air. Issues can change lots in seven months and we’re now in our new dwelling and greater than a month into the brand new yr. I’d say it’s time for an additional At present replace! Let’s get to it! Right here’s somewhat peek into what’s taking place over right here currently… At present-style!

At present: February 2023

At present Watching: Break Point on Netflix

You guys we even have a present we’re watching proper now!! I swear Ryan and I am going months and months between reveals 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 interested by a tennis documentary as a result of I had simply completed studying Carrie Soto is Back which mainly turned me right into a tennis knowledgeable in a single day. We’ve solely made it by means of two episodes up to now nevertheless it’s been fascinating. I hope 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 perfect tennis gamers on this planet as they strategy enormous matches.

At present 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 tender, hydrated lips. It took all of 1 software of these items for me to like it. First, it tastes implausible. The berry taste is subtly candy and pleasant. Second, it feels superb on my lips… so superb that I’ve began carrying it round with me in my bag as a result of I don’t wish to solely use it at evening time. The tiniest quantity goes a good distance and I’m lovinggg these items!

At present Impressed By: Ryan’s rising haircut abilities!

For the previous few months, Ryan has been slicing the boys’ hair. Each month he picks up new methods and abilities and whereas he’ll be the primary to say their haircuts don’t appear to be they’re performed by an expert, I believe he’s been doing an superior job!! Plus, something that saves us from popping into Nice Clips each 6 weeks for a trim appears like an excellent factor to me. I’m hoping it’s one thing he’ll proceed to do and revel in as a result of the boys appear to suppose Dad haircuts are the best and I believe they appear fairly cute, too!!

At present Can’t Consider: I’ll have FOUR mornings to myself this coming fall.

I simply submitted preschool registrations for the autumn and Rhett and Ryder shall be attending preschool 4 mornings per week. Chase shall be in second grade so he’ll be in class Monday by means of Friday and I can’t 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 principally 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 flexibility to pump out a bunch of labor in a minimal period of time since having youngsters. You recognize the saying, “If you would like one thing performed, give it to a busy individual?” Nicely, I wholeheartedly agree with that as a result of mothers and busy individuals in some way simply how methods to get it performed. 4 3.5 hour stretches of time the place no youngster wants me throughout the week sounds magical to my mind that presently appears to stay in a state of multitasking and child chaos.

At present Crafting: Perler bead creations

Affectionately known as “melty beads” in our home, our large youngsters can’t get sufficient of Perler beads currently. They’ve created every little thing from ocean animals and online game controllers to patterned shapes, canines, birds, automobiles and extra with this stuff. I additionally oddly discover this exercise enjoyable and can be part of within the enjoyable, too, so it’s been an effective 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 along with his large brothers however can’t actually make actual creations but and Biggie Beads appear to be a a lot better match for him. They’re the identical Perler beads our boys love solely BIGGER! I ordered some for Rhett to strive together with some patterns he can comply with and so they’re set to reach at this time!

At present Studying: The Address by Fiona Davis

I’ve been immersed on this planet of thrillers currently however historic fiction will all the time have my coronary heart. I’ve beloved Fiona Davis’ historic fiction novels previously and simply started studying The Tackle earlier this week. It’s somewhat gradual to start out however I can already really feel it selecting up steam so my hopes are excessive!

At present Making: Perfect M&M Cookies

We first tried these cookies when considered 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 through the years and so they’ve all fallen somewhat in need of my expectations however THESE are implausible!!! We’ve made them a handful of instances and whereas I do want them with mini M&Ms just like the recipe requires, they work with common M&Ms as effectively which I’ve performed a couple of instances after I wish to use seasonal coloured M&Ms. One vital be aware: The dough looks like it is perhaps somewhat dry and crumbly while 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 max tastiness.

At present Sipping: Yogi Egyptian Licorice Mint Tea

Aka my all-time favourite tea.

Random tea-related story: One evening 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” along with his fingers and winks at us after 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 somewhat later.) It’s lovely and in some way makes Chase appear to be somewhat child and a young person abruptly to me.
