Making : Exercise a priority and working out on my lunch break instead of diving into my book like I had been. Also, more homemade meals. With a goal of eating healthier comes needing to actually cook and I have been enjoying it for the most part!
Cooking : This pork recipe, the Fabulicious cookbook homemade meatball recipe ( dont knock it till you try it), this smoothie recipe ( with coconut milk), my fave banana bread recipe, and plan on making this and this recipe this month.
Drinking : Decaf coffee. I have been having trouble sleeping lately so I have cut out all caffeine after 2pm and am only drinking decaf coffee when possible. Coconut milk smoothies! Trying to drink more water but failing often.
Reading : Drums of Autumn for me, 5 minute Princess Stories for Mia and ABC books for Joaquim.
Wanting : Warmer weather, a day of sleep, a day in the sunshine with my kiddos and my love.
Playing : Cars and basketball with Joa, barbies and magnatiles and science experiments with Mia.
Enjoying : Crossing things off my to do list, keeping the house in order, Yoga, Pilates, Barre and Stretch classes at the gym and how I feel after taking them.
Wondering : If we will ever figure out how to register Mia for kindergarten.
Hoping : To find some time for Mike and I to take a day off together in the Spring.
Marveling : At the somewhat mild winter we have had so far this year…shhhhh dont jinx it Bruna
Needing : To color my hair and get a trim.
Smelling : The pancakes Mike made for the kids for breakfast, thieves in the diffuser and the peppermint EO I put on the wool dryer balls doing their magic.
Wearing : lots of leggings and boots these days…and cardigan sweaters
Noticing : That day by day it is getting easier to handle both kiddos at home and still get stuff done. I remember days when I literally did nothing but be my babies shadows but as independent play grows and Mia can help out with daily chores ( she often asks to help!) it has become easier to manage the housework, which in turn lets me really focus on being present when I am playing with them instead of thinking about that load of dishes that needs to be done or that pile of laundry that needs to be folded and put away.
Knowing : That things are exactly as they should be.
Thinking : About what to make for dinner tonight
Bookmarking : Essential oil info/recipes, recipes in general, and houses for sale.- this is what I had put last year and its still true this year.
Opening : The Goiabada my mama brought me.
Giggling : At Mia’s boy craziness. She is so cute with it! She has now begun to whisper to me each time she thinks the boy in the drive thru is cute! Ahhh Mike’s in trouble when that girl’s in high school 🙂
I’ll leave you with a sunny view from our honeymoon in Mexico hoping to send some sunny vibes your way!
