At the moment: February 2023 – Peanut Butter Fingers

We had been smack-dab in the course of shifting mayhem, dwelling in Florida for 30 days and life was very a lot up within the air. Issues can change lots in seven months and we’re now in our new house and greater than a month into the brand new 12 months. I’d say it’s time for one more At the moment replace! Let’s get to it! Right here’s slightly peek into what’s taking place over right here these days… At the moment-style!

At the moment: February 2023

At the moment Watching: Break Point on Netflix

You guys we even have a present we’re watching proper now!! I swear Ryan and I’m going months and months between exhibits however once I heard about Break Level, I discussed it to Ryan and we gave it a shot after the boys had been in mattress final weekend. Ryan will watch any sports-related documentary and I admittedly was extra keen on a tennis documentary as a result of I had simply completed studying Carrie Soto is Back which mainly turned me right into a tennis skilled in a single day. We’ve solely made it by means of two episodes thus far but it surely’s been attention-grabbing. I hope the documentary will share extra concerning the athletes’ coaching in future episodes but it surely’s nonetheless cool to see what goes by means of the minds of a handful of the most effective tennis gamers on the earth as they strategy large matches.

At the moment Reapplying: Laneige Lip Mask

Have you ever guys heard of this lip masks? It blew up the web and have become an influencer and superstar favourite however since I apparently reside below a rock, I solely not too long ago heard about it. The idea sounded nice: Apply a thick smear of this lip masks to your lips earlier than mattress, let it sink in in a single day and awake to smooth, hydrated lips. It took all of 1 software of these items for me to adore it. First, it tastes implausible. The berry taste is subtly candy and pleasant. Second, it feels superb on my lips… so superb that I’ve began carrying it round with me in my bag as a result of I don’t need to solely use it at night time time. The tiniest quantity goes a good distance and I’m lovinggg these things!

At the moment Impressed By: Ryan’s growing haircut expertise!

For the previous few months, Ryan has been reducing the boys’ hair. Each month he picks up new methods and expertise and whereas he’ll be the primary to say their haircuts don’t appear to be they’re accomplished by knowledgeable, I feel he’s been doing an superior job!! Plus, something that saves us from popping into Nice Clips each 6 weeks for a trim appears like a superb factor to me. I’m hoping it’s one thing he’ll proceed to do and revel in as a result of the boys appear to suppose Dad haircuts are the good and I feel they give the impression of being fairly cute, too!!

At the moment Can’t Imagine: I’ll have FOUR mornings to myself this coming fall.

I simply submitted preschool registrations for the autumn and Rhett and Ryder will probably be attending preschool 4 mornings every week. Chase will probably be in second grade so he’ll be at school Monday by means of Friday and I can’t consider I’ll have 4 3.5-hour stretches of time to myself 4 mornings every week starting in September. Whaaaat is that this magic!?

I’ll be utilizing this time principally to work on this weblog however dannng I’m simply so pumped for some constant mornings to myself. I additionally know 3.5 hours will fly by however you higher consider I’ve mastered the flexibility to pump out a bunch of labor in a minimal period of time since having youngsters. You realize the saying, “If you need one thing accomplished, give it to a busy individual?” Nicely, I wholeheartedly agree with that as a result of mothers and busy individuals someway simply how tips on how to get it accomplished. 4 3.5 hour stretches of time the place no baby wants me in the course of the week sounds magical to my mind that presently appears to reside in a state of multitasking and child chaos.

At the moment Crafting: Perler bead creations

Affectionately known as “melty beads” in our home, our massive youngsters can’t get sufficient of Perler beads these days. They’ve created the whole lot from ocean animals and online game controllers to patterned shapes, canines, birds, vehicles and extra with these items. I additionally oddly discover this exercise stress-free and can be a part of within the enjoyable, too, so it’s been a good way to spend some calm high quality time with the boys.

Additionally, I owe an enormous thanks to Becca for recommending Biggie Beads to me! Rhett at all times tries to do melty beads along with his massive brothers however can’t actually make actual creations but and Biggie Beads look like a significantly better match for him. They’re the identical Perler beads our boys love solely BIGGER! I ordered some for Rhett to strive together with some patterns he can observe they usually’re set to reach at the moment!

At the moment Studying: The Address by Fiona Davis

I’ve been immersed on the earth of thrillers these days however historic fiction will at all times have my coronary heart. I’ve cherished Fiona Davis’ historic fiction novels prior to now and simply started studying The Handle earlier this week. It’s slightly sluggish to begin however I can already really feel it choosing up steam so my hopes are excessive!

At the moment Making: Perfect M&M Cookies

We first tried these cookies when considered one of Chase’s mates introduced them to our home throughout a playdate over the vacations they usually blew us away. I’ve made so many M&M cookies over time they usually’ve all fallen slightly in need of my expectations however THESE are implausible!!! We’ve made them a handful of instances and whereas I do favor them with mini M&Ms just like the recipe requires, they work with common M&Ms as properly which I’ve accomplished a couple of instances once I need to use seasonal coloured M&Ms. One essential word: The dough looks like it is perhaps slightly dry and crumbly if you combine it however preserve mixing!!! The dough will ultimately come collectively and develop into tremendous thick. One little tip: I like to recommend under-baking them a bit for optimum tastiness.

At the moment Sipping: Yogi Egyptian Licorice Mint Tea

Aka my all-time favourite tea.

Random tea-related story: One night time when Chase couldn’t sleep, he got here downstairs to seek out Ryan making himself a mug of Sleepytime tea with our electric kettle. Ryan made Chase a mug, too, and he sipped it whereas we learn Harry Potter collectively. Chase will now ask for “tea and tales” after his little brothers go to mattress if he can’t sleep. (He even makes the signal of the letter “T” along with his palms and winks at us once we tuck him in similtaneously Ryder on Friday or Saturday nights as a result of he is aware of these are nights he’s allowed to remain up slightly later.) It’s cute and someway makes Chase look like slightly child and a youngster abruptly to me.
