Today, I want to share a fun linkup with you. Jenna, founder of A Mama Collective, has a weekly linkup "Currently" that allows us to share what's going on in our world. This is my first week joining Jenna and so many others and I like how the prompts let me share a bit about myself.

Thinking about: how I have a lot to accomplish while Connor sleeps. As much as I would love to say when he is sleeping it's "me time", it's not. Or it can't be. Those short but sweet hours of baby freedom allows me to get so many things taken care of without having little feet following me, "helping". I could always get up before hours before Connor and get things done but let's face it, I'm not a fan of an alarm clock.

Reading: Shine Shine Shine for June's book club meeting. So far, it's been pretty hard to get into but I've read fabulous reviews on it so I'm hoping it picks up soon. Along with that, I just finished this week's The Story chapters for a Bible study I'm working on with a girlfriend.

Listening to: Christmas music and the sound of white noise coming through the baby monitor. Yes, Christmas music. I listen to it every time I blog. I don't know why or how it even started but I've been doing it for as long as I can remember. Christmas music puts me in the best of moods.

Watching: the clock. I need to have this post written and posted so I can shower and get ready for the rest of the day while CJ sleeps. My life revolves around seeing how much I can do without having Connor climbing my legs to get to the computer, stove, dishwasher (anything really) and seeing how much I can do while it's just me awake and moving.

Thankful for: the most perfect weekend with my husband and son. We did family outings both days that allowed us to enjoy the sunny weather we had and I was able to take walk/runs both Saturday and Sunday sans baby. Some of our weekends are so jammed packed I feel like I need an extra day to get to relax but this weekend was full of fun and relaxation and I would love to see a repeat this weekend.

Now it's your turn to share your "current" thoughts with me. 
Pick a bullet point and leave your thoughts in the comment section below.


  1. That's so funny that you listen to Christmas music when you blog! Love it! Currently I'm thinking about dinner tonight with my sweet college girlfriend who is back briefly from her mission work in Africa. So excited to see her!

    1. I have no clue what we are having tonight. Something simple.
      Have fun with your girlfriend. I love that ya'll can reconnect!

  2. Your naps and "me time" sound awfully familiar. :)
    Currently I'm listening to M scream it out in his crib. The child desperately needs a nap but refuses to give in. Why doesn't he understand the glory of a designated nap?!!

  3. I love "Currently" posts! I love that you listen to Christmas music. I always listen to classical or jazz when I'm writing.

  4. Haha Christmas music is the best. Love that you listen to it year round when you blog.

  5. Thankful for...an easy baby and being able to quit my job on order to be a stay at home mom. Love my baby girl so much!
