I was struggling with blog writers block tonight, so I took an idea from Mel at The Larson Lingo and adapted it for my own version. Sooooo, here are some random thoughts for the day. Because, well, it's fun!
What I'm eating
Tonight, I made tuna melts for dinner, and didn't snap a picture to share. But, last night was St Patrick's day and I have a tradition of turning the food green for the entire day, so that's exactly what I did. Chicken Alfredo, asparagus and some green milk. It may have looked weird, but it was delicious! I thought for sure we'd have leftovers, but we ate every single drop.
What I'm reading
I just finished reading Orphan Train and it's one of my favorites of all time. I'm not kidding, if you are looking for a good book, this is a MUST. It was hard to put it down, which says a lot when you are a mom to 4 young kids. I may have been caught reading during bath time, at sporting events and even in my car. It was sooooo good!!
What I'm loving
Our weather! We did have a bit of rain this weekend, but for the most part, it's been the warmest and best weather on record, for the last couple of months. Sometimes I forget that it's technically still winter! We've been spending a ton of time outdoors. Today, I even got the girls out for a 3-mile run. #bestrunningpartersever
What I'm dreading
I have a love/hate relationship with youth sports. I love how much my kids love them, but it's really hard to lose family time and put Adam and I in different places. This year, Jake is playing on a more competitive baseball team that will be traveling. In addition to the 2-3 practices a week (Adam is the head coach), they will add in games and tournaments, soon. I have to take a deep breath and realize that it's a season of life and I should enjoy it. But sometimes, when I'm sitting in the rain, juggling 3 kids on the sideline, I may need another reminder, or three.
What I'm excited about
SPRING BREAK!!! We have one week left and then the entire week off! Adam and I are still making plans for a mini trip and we can't wait to surprise the kids. Our top two choices are a trip to Portland, OR for the weekend or a little staycation in Seattle. Hotel, tourist-y things, etc with the kids.
What I'm watching
I'm in mourning now that the Bachelor is over, so I have to focus on my other favorite shows. At the top of my list is Scandal. Followed closely by Chicago PD and Chicago Fire, The Good Wife and American Crime.
What I'm reminiscing about
My biggest boy is going to be in the double digits next month and I'm having a really hard time coming to grips. I mean, once you are in the double digits, you never go back!!!!
What I'm wearing
I didn't snap a picture of my outfit today, but I did yesterday. Everyone has to wear green on St Paddy's day, so I tried to be as celebratory as possible! ;-)
