Currently: May

It’s the Friday before Memorial Day… the UNOFFICIAL Kick off to summer!  You wouldn’t really know it though after it felt like November for a few days this week!!

Time for another edition of “Currently…”

Reading: I should probably just do away with this topic.  I don’t ever get a chance to read beyond blog reading and my 2am iPad reading sessions when I am feeding B.  In all seriousness, I do catch up on current events and blogs at 2am.  What else is there to do?!

Running: I’ve kicked up my mileage and my speed this month!  My RunKeeper app helps me monitor how fast and how long I am running!   All of the water fountains are back on around here and I’ve had some truly spectacular sunrise runs.


Non-Running Workout: I’ve welcomed The Dailey Method back into my life and I am SOOO happy!  I love being back at the barre and it’s so much fun seeing all of the familiar faces.   Love feeling that barre burn.

Excitement: Is it weird that I am excited about starting The 30 Clean on June 1?  In other news, B’s has been napping has been better.  We were dealing with a minor sleep regression for the last couple of weeks and we made a change in our swaddles and things have become a lot better!  Though I know nothing lasts forever good or bad in the world of newborn sleep!

In other excitement… it’s almost June!  Sara will finish Kindergarten on her 6th birthday!! The little lady is quite excited about all of the upcoming celebrations!

Garden Item:  My garden is growing!  I forgot to snap pics but the basil is looking good so are my bean plants!

TV: I just looked at my calendar and realized the new season of Orange is the New Black comes back in a few weeks!!  Sooo excited!  Spring TV is pretty much over so it’s time to get back on Netflix!  Who else is going to binge watch Orange?

Kitchen Gadget:  Well that’s easy…


Not-So-Healthy-Indulgence: As mentioned in previous months I’ve been known to go a bit overboard on the nut butters….

Healthy Indulgence:  When I ran to Whole Foods this week to get a few things I was so excited to see these on sale!  Obviously I needed to buy 12 to get the extra 10% off in addition to the already discounted price… They were just calling my name!


Mood: We are all pretty happy over here!!  The Hubs has been enjoying his time with B and I am happy to be back at work!!  Plus, at the end of the day I always make sure to get lots of playing time in with these two!  Seeing these two together brings me nothing but pure happiness.  Well worth the wait!



YOUR TURN! Pick something in this post and tell me about you!  What are you doing this holiday weekend?

  1. Glad to see everything is going so well!

    I am happily staying home this weekend. I had a blast on all of my running and non running adventures but I am ready to stay home. I have a ridiculous amount of new foods to try from the Snack Show. I just finished reading Gretchen Rubin’s Better Than Before about Habits. Good stuff!

    Have a good long weekend!

    Curious what swaddles you use? We’ve been using Summer Infant swaddlemes, but she can sometimes get her hand up by her face because they’re velcro. We double swaddle and put an aden & anais swaddle blanket around the swaddleme to get it really tight. I just bought a halo sleep sack, but it’s still too big for her right now. I read blogs during night feedings too! Good way to catch up on them.

      The miracle blanket!! It’s the best! Hands can’t get out!! It’s on Amazon!! Seriously amazing and no Velcro!

  4. Happy, happy! I keep saying that I’m going to get a Spiralizer thingy. THIS WEEKEND, IT’S ON.
