Currently // July

Here’s a story:

We had a busy, almost spontaneous weekend, and I loved it! However, that meant that I wasn’t able to prepare a good post for today…but, coming Wednesday, is “Backy Tips, Tricks, and Hacks.”

So, for today, I’ll be doing a Currently and talk about my weekend!

Craving // Oreos and Pepsi. I always crave Pepsi in the summer and we just had a box of Oreo last week, and it disappeared all too quickly.

Grilling // Nothing, sadly. Justin has all but given up on his small little personal grill. But, next week there will be a lot of grilling when we go to our Morrell family reunion!

Listening // To a lot of Disney and toddler stations on Pandora. Got to indoctrinate my one year old in the ways of Disney, and we have fun dance parties to “The Wheels on the Bus.”

Planning // The rest of July’s blogging stuff, getting all my unit plans typed up and sold on Teachers Pay Teachers and organizing/cleaning out our storage and closets.

(Re)Decorating // We just got a new couch, so we are rearranging our living room. Post will come in a few weeks of the before and after! I love it! Some subtle changes, but a huge difference!

So, this past weekend was a whirlwind!

Wednesday evening, we were supposed to get pictures taken by Ashley Ziegler, but the weather got the best of us. (Wish us luck tonight!)

Thursday was Justin’s birthday. He got (half) a package of Oreos and a (full) banana cream pie, as well as a t-shirt with one of his favorite anime’s insignia on it from Rhys and me. I went to a blogger dinner with a few of my closest blogger friends. Then, we went to meet up with Justin’s sister who just flew in and had ice cream with her.

Friday I got a mani-pedi with another blogger friend. Then, our couch arrived, and we had a fun time deep-scrubbing the living room, moving couches out, and assembling the new couch.

Saturday, we went on an early morning grocery trip (thank you Rhys for waking up without fail between 5:30-6:30 AM even on weekends). Then, that evening, we were invited to go bowling with some of Justin’s friends. It was nice to be able to get out spontaneously and have fun with adults our age. It was also fun to watch Rhys bowl!

What did you do over the weekend?

    Looks like so much fun!

  • It was, Emilie!

  • Oreos = dangerous. So very, very dangerous. But so very, very delicious.

  • I've been craving Cherry Pepsi, and I'm not much of a pop drinker. It just sounds so good.
    We had a package of *mega* stuffed Oreos, and those magically disappeared in a few days. Thankfully I can honestly say I didn't have any part in the consumption.
    How fun to go bowling, and with Rhys! Looks like he had a great time too!

  • That sounds like a very nice weekend.

    Now I want Oreos.

  • They are! They never last in our house, especially after we discovered Rhys likes them.

  • I always want Oreos!

  • Aww, the bowling expedition looked fun! Oreos was one of the limited number of American snacks available in China and I probably ate more of them there than ever before (especially since our school gave us fresh milk every day…I needed Oreos to go with my milk..haha!) Now…I have no more desire for Oreos, at all. 😛

  • Hahaha! I don't think I (or Justin) could ever get tired of Oreos!

  • I would love a new couch. It's definitely want I want to buy for our home next time we do some home shopping. It totally changes a room right?
