Happy Friday! I’m thrilled the weekend is here and that my best friend and her fam are coming to visit! No real wild plans besides maybe getting a pumpkin, hanging out and watching a pretty big Clemson game. Hooray for fall! Let’s catch up with a little “currently” kind of post and please play along in the comments- it’s always so much fun for me to read!
// Current Celebration //
Today is my parents’ wedding anniversary! It sounds like their celebration, not mine, but watching them model such a loving, healthy marriage has arguably done more for me than most other things in my life. So congratulations mom and dad- love y’all so much!
// Current Confession //
Two night ago I slept terribly. I had nightmares that came from who-knows-where and woke up every hour. The girls seemed worn out too, so yesterday at 2 pm I put the girls in a bath, scrubbed them down, then we all put on pajamas. We then proceeded to light a fall candle and sit on the couch for the rest of the afternoon. We snuggled while we watched the newly released version of Beauty and the Beast (it’s so great!), then about 4 episodes of Sophia the First. I’m sure I melted their brains forever and ever, but it felt amazing.

// Current Favorite Product //
Collagen. I’d say I’ve been taking it most everyday for a month or so now and dare I say I feel like I might be able to see some results? My nails are harder and my hair seems to be growing faster. And randomly, my elbow that sometimes hurts hasn’t bothered me as much. Whatever the reason, I’m convinced enough that I just ordered another container and made an appointment for a haircut.
// Current Plan //
For Friday? Nothing wild– a little grocery shopping then maybe, maybe building Hailey’s bunk beds (currently on super sale!) that arrived 2 weeks ago that we have yet to tell her about or put together. Reviews say it takes 3 hours and trying to find that chunk of time is proving more difficult than we thought.
I’m also planning October, which has a lot of fun things going on, including Maker’s Market, a really incredible Etsy-ish event I’m helping put together benefiting our local Girls on the Run chapter. Please check it out and local friends, I hope to see you there!
Current Book //
Hahahahahahaha. I picked up a Real Simple magazine on a whim the other day and thoroughly enjoyed flipping through it with a cup of hot tea. Other than that, I haven’t read a thing since the Collapse of Parenting.
// Current Accomplishment //
Meal planning. I’ve been more consistent in my planning and implementation over the last few weeks and no matter how often I do it, looking over my complete plan and list brings me immense satisfaction.
Last night I put in an online order for some of my basics using Walmart’s grocery pick up (<- referral link that gives us both $10 towards an order). I like to use it when I need to restock on pantry items like peanut butter, broth, la croix, etc. I’ll swing by this morning to pick that up before grabbing my other stuff elsewhere.
// Current Show //
Quantico. I don’t even know how I got into this 22 episode season. I’m not sure I even am that wild about the show in general (and it’s probably where my nightmares came from), but now that we are this far in, I have to find out who the terrorist is.
I’ve heard wonderful things about This Is Us though– anyone watching that?
// Current Wishlist//
Mostly just for slightly cooler temperatures. I’m not hoping for cold, but I’m over seeing temps in the low 80’s. Tomorrow will be October after all!
// baby Hailey!! Oh time… //
Also hoping Georgia looks a little (a lot) better this week versus Tennessee than we did last week against Ole Miss (that was painful).
Oh, one last thing- to step up my skincare! My hodgepodge of products don’t seem to be doing my skin any favors lately. I am gearing up for a total focus on my face (turning 33 apparently made my pores triple in size). Currently researching things and asking for input.
