A Currently AND Throw Back Thursday

3 Generations waiting for the 4th one to be born!!!

Holy cow wow!!!
  I just came across this picture sitting in a draft that I never got round to typing.
This seems like forever ago and yet just yesterday all at the same time!

Now my sweet little Evelyn is finally here and growing up soooo fast.   In just a few short days she will be 7 months old....whhhaaa?!?!?  How is time flying by so quickly?  I love that my little girl shares both her great grandmother's first name and her grandmother's middle name.  Funny to look up at this picture and "see" three ladies with the name Lois, I LOVE it!!

A little Currently update for you:

Sipping: a homemade peppermint latte.   I've been terrible about drinking way too much coffee these days!  I wish I could drink it just like water.  On this note, I'm contemplating buying an actual coffee pot.  Can you believe I don't own one?!?

Wearing: a new J.Crew scent that I instantly fell in love with and trust me, that never happens.  I love that "57" comes in a little roll on bottle that I can carry around with me in my purse, so handy.

Purging:  pretty much everything that isn't quite necessary.  I LOVE to purge!  Could be an addictive hobby of mine =)

Sleeping: oh so well.  I'm definitely grateful for a baby that sleeps like a champ.  For a stint I was doing great at getting up an hour/hours before anyone else and hitting up the gym, but this past week for some reason has been tough.  Must be the grey weather. 

Buying:  all toys wooden.  There's nothing quite like a unique quality wooden toy made in the USA.

Writing:  hand written notes to friends and family because it really does feel good to do something productive other than laundry.  There will always be cleaning and sometimes it's hard for me to let the dirt go and focus on other things.

Trying: to hold on tight to my baby girl.  I look at her sweet face and think about the day when she won't be so little anymore.  I want to soak up every minute she is a baby and willing to let her mother hold and snuggle her. 

Creating: a capsule wardrobe because a mama needs it easy and simple.

Enjoying:  gym time.  It feels so incredible to run and sweat and detox the body.  I've realized that it's not only great for the body, but also mentally clarifying.  Now that all my baby weight is gone ( and that was no small sweat :) I'm closer to my ultimate summer goal.  I have my motivation though.

Eating:  one new recipe a week.  It's been a goal and a very wonderful goal at that.  Just recently I was shopping at Whole Foods and put together the most amazing curry chicken recipe ever.  A new addiction.  Lately I've been trying to buy more items that are organic and just buying less of them.  Except, I don't know what happened with my sweet tooth this past week, it went all haywire and nuts!!!  I've got to be better about this :)

Needing:  a girls day out with my mom and sisters.  Life is so busy, it's hard to find time to just enjoy an entire day together.  Maybe when this weather gets a tad nicer!

Listening:  to a new favorite song, My Heart is Open by Maroon 5 (feat. Gwen Stefani) love love love.
But then again, I love Adam Levine.  Yes, I'm a big fan of The Voice and felt bad for Adam when people weren't picking him. 

Hoping:  to get back into blogging a little bit more.  I'm on a mission to figure out how to put together a collage of all my favorite baby items!!!  I have sooo many!

Following:  a new wonderful blog by..... MY VERY OWN MOM!!!!!  So proud of her that she finally started one.  She has been wanting to for a long time now.  She is an amazing and very gifted writer.  Go check her out HERE.

Have a very Blessed Easter Everyone!!!
