Ten Things Tuesday

Good Morning!

After perusing through my feed this morning, I got the idea from fellow blogger Narci to list 10 things currently happening in my life right now.

Here goes…

  1. This weekend we’re going shopping for new carpet to put in the bedroom & I’m a little too excited about this.
  2. I think JVJ knows that I’m pregnant. He’s been way more affectionate towards me recently & I’m loving every single second of it.
  3. Speaking of being pregnant, today I am 25 WEEKS! Next week I have to go in for my Glucose Test. I’m not looking forward to drinking Glucola & having blood taken. Ew.
  4. Delia isn’t playing softball this season & I’m kinda bummed about that too! I love watching her play. I wish I had played when I was young. As a kid, trying new sports & meeting new people always gave me INTENSE anxiety…. Thinking about the kind of person Delia is & her love of trying new things and meeting new people makes me SO PROUD. I wish I could be more like her.
  5. With that being said…. the past few days I’ve been really struggling with Delia. She is 8 going on 18 and doesn’t want to do what she doesn’t want to do. I’ve been losing my patience more & more with each defiant rebuttal. Hopefully this will cool down as we settle into our new routine. But man, is it tough right now.
  6. I’ve been procrastinating making banana bread for an embarrassing amount of time. I think it’s finally time to admit that my over ripe bananas are now actually rotten. BRB – let me throw those away real quick.
  7. This year I decided it would be a cute idea to create a monthly newsletter for Delia’s Girl Scout troop. I’ve been having so much fun with this project! Trying to be proactive & knock out all of the issues for this year before baby arrives!! @Highlights what’s good?? 😉
  8. My M&M McFlurry cravings are out of control. It’s not quite 11am & I’m seriously considering going to McDonalds right now. But can anyone offer insight as to why they still give you those huge funky spoons even though they don’t actually mix in the M&M’s with them?? But instead just dump them on top??? This really grinds my gears. Especially when I think about it while sipping out of a paper straw.
  9. I’ve made several fall inspired home decor purchases recently. I’m so ready. What should we all be for Halloween this year???
  10. This has proven to be much harder than I thought. Hoping future me looks back on this post adoringly and appreciates the fact that I took 30 minutes of our time to sit & type all of this out. I suppose these are the days we wish to remember….. Right?

What are some exciting things going on in your life right now? What are some not so exciting but little things that just totally irk you &  you know you can’t possibly be the only one irked by those ridiculous but totally justifiably annoying things?

I’m still all worked up about mcflurries, can you tell?

It’s done, guys.

This summer came, saw, and conquered. It carped it’s diem. It’s so friggin’ over it. It literally just can’t even anymore.

Samesies though.

I’m equal parts an emotional wreck that D will be a 1st Grader / ecstatic that I’m done shoveling out heaps of money for camp. (if we’re being real about it)

What Else? Here’s a few other things I’m in like with right now….

Listening: Spotify Current Must Hears – Deep Focus, Productive Morning, Flash Back Friday.. These (3) playlists are my go to for the time being. Give me all the zen & good memories, please. #haloonrepeat

Watching: Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press – it started as kind of a joke between John & I because he, as a kid, was obsessed w/ WWE and I thought (incessently joked and persisted) that he would LOVE it because, I mean, Hulk Hogan & his infamous sex scandal. But – to both of our surprise – it was really good. I love documentaries, and this one was definitely eyeopening, to say the least. Highly recommend.

Reading: So I recently began reading The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I first saw previews for the series advertised by Hulu, but as a mom on a budget – Netflix is enough for me. I decided to read the novel instead. Atwood has so far presented a grim reality for our protagonist, Offred, who frequently has flashbacks of better days. I haven’t made it very far, but I can’t wait to see what unfolds next.

Drinking: On a recent trip to Costco, John and I decided to pop into the Liquor Store and we were N O T disappointed. $28.99 for a handle of Tito’s!? Yes, please. This means that for the past (3) weekends we’ve been getting ourselves toasty for $10 eaches! Vodka Soda on the Rocks with a Splash of Cran, anyone?

Pampering: I think we’re all kind of reaching our boiling point (literally) here. It always get worse before it gets better, guys.  August in South Florida is just a sneak preview into what I can only imagine as an accurate depiction of the deepest depths of hell. I leave my house @ 7:30am and basically melt instantly upon outdoor exposure. Luckily, my bestie for the restie, Lauren, is a Posh representative and hooks me up with all my summertime essentials. Current must have:


This is my go-to soap rn. Cooling/ and slightly exfoliating – it’s the perfect way to treat yoself after a long hot day. & Heads up plant based friends  – it’s vegan! Besides this summertime miracle soap, Posh offers a wide range of pampering products with adorable packaging – cutesie names – and delicious scents! Also obsessed with their Snarky Bar & Big Fat Yummy Hand Cremes.

Loving: These two. Always.


What’re some things you’re in like with right now? Whether it’s food, a comfy pair of pj’s or a song that’s just hittingggg the spot, I’d love to hear about it 🙂

Thanks for reading!
