Currently…

Who doesn’t love a good blog survey?   And I love this blog survey that one of my favorite bloggers, Julie, at Peanut Butter Fingers  posted. She got it from someone else, but that is how these things go.  So I thought I would give it a whirl!

  • Currently Cooking…

Cooking all the time is what I do. Today, I made curried sweet potato salad (holly Yummmm!) and it was awesome! I also made a batch of Mama Pees Mmmm Sauce (also amazing), to go with some rice bowls (broccoli, chick peas, peas, and edamame) for lunch tomorrow.  Oh and we had leftover Gumbo for dinner tonight with the curried sweet potato salad.  When I write it all down like that I feel like a cooking fool.  I know I ran the dishwasher twice.

  • Currently Anticipating…

My parents coming to visit, hopefully in April!  Between doctors appointments and my Mom being terrified of driving through Houston, it has been a long time since they have come for a visit.  In fact,  we have not seen them since we went to Baton Rouge in November for Thanksgiving.  And It is so hard to travel there with a toddler (think 8 to 10 hours in the car).  It also isn’t really in our budget for us to go.  Gas maybe cheap these days, but pet sitters are quite expensive.  So, I could not be more thrilled that they are coming for a visit and to see their grandchild.

  • Currently Listening To…

The sound of the TV in the next room LOL.  No, seriously, in my car CD player I am listening to The Pixies, Surfer Rosa, an oldie but a goodie.  It doesn’t get much airtime in the car because my daughter is almost always with me.  But when I am solo, I crank it up and roll the windows down cause I’m cheesy like that.

  • Currently Craving…

Alcohol! It has been a long time since I gave anything up for lent.  Silly me gave wine up for lent and threw in all alcohol as well for good measure.  I guess that means I am anticipating Easter as well. LOL!

  • Currently Drinking…

A lot of Vietnamese Coffee!  We have a French Press and I make them in the afternoons for a little pick-me-upper.  They really help me push through the rest of the day.  I love them with lots of condensed milk.  So good in the afternoon!  Plus they are fun to make.

  • Currently Day Dreaming About…

Becoming a freelance writer so I can stay home with my daughter.  I’m spending a lot of time doing research online, but I don’t feel quite ready to jump in.  I have a lot of self doubt and fears of not being good enough.  This post really helped put things into perspective for me though.  It gave me the courage to submit an article I wrote for publication.  I just said F*** it! and ripped the band aid. Fingers crossed that I will hear something good soon.  I’ll keep you posted.

  • Currently Indulging In…

Lots of special time with my little girl.  I love spending time with her, reading books to her and playing with Legos and Magna tiles.  We played with her Magna tiles today.  If you don’t know what Magna tiles are, they are little squares and triangles that have magnetic edges so you can build lots of 3D shapes and things.  We think they are our daughter’s favorite toy; she has a hard time sharing that them.  I highly recommend magna tiles for children and adults of almost any age.  They are a bit pricy, but really worth it if your child likes to build things.

  • Currently Avoiding…

Going to bed AND doing the menu.  It is way past my bedtime and I really need to cut this short, but I am having so much fun writing and brainstorming that I can’t seem to break away from the keyboard.  Additionally, I worked on the menu today, but it isn’t finished.  Menu planning is no fun!  I guess that is what tomorrow is for.

  • Currently Needing…

I think I need a lot of things, but when I really think about it, I really just want those things.  I try to tell myself these things when I especially want something.  The only thing I can think of that I really do need is probably some new clothes, nice pants to be specifics.  I have put some weight on since becoming a SAHM and my clothes are, shall we say, snug?  I have got to get back on a diet and start working out, but there just seems to be so little time for that.  I really need a couple pairs of nice dress pants.

  • Currently Coveting

Since I am in the market for new clothes, I tend to gravitate to expensive clothes.  And there is no better blogger out there then Kendi for expensive clothes.  I want this outfit,, and this one and this one.  I could really go on.   As I side note, as I was entering these hyperlinks, I realized that I guess my style is a little Bohemian….hugh?  Who knew?

  • Currently Loving…

My time with my precious baby girl.  I love being a SAHM and enjoy all the lazy soft moments that come with not having to rush around from day care to work and back again.  I love that I can just take the day off of housework and enjoy finger painting and coloring with my little one.  Pretty sure she loves it too.

  • Currently Reading…

I love reading self-help books and financial books (I know I am a nerd).  But I am currently reading Chris Hogan’s Retire Inspired book.  So far I am not all that impressed, full book review to come if I can make it through it.

  • Currently Watching…

This one is tough for me.  Downtown Abby just went off the air (Boo!) which was my favorite go to treat on a Sunday night.  My guilty pleasure for years and years has been the Bachelor, but I’m not that into it this season, I think I am out growing it.  And I am waiting until I can drink wine again to watch House of Cards because the two go together so well.  I guess my other favorite would be Shark Tank, but lately I haven’t been that into it either.  So I don’t really know!

 

OK, your turn!  what are you currently into these days?
