Hello! And welcome to this week’s edition of currently…

Secretly – obsessing over my EOS lip balms (specifically the coconut milk variety). BTR bought me one for Christmas and I loved it so much I bought 2 more to have in my purse and around the house. And then all this ridiculousness with a lawsuit came out because people were having reactions. But I really think those people are just a tiny bit crazy because this stuff is awesome in my book. Also I just read that the lawsuit was settled and they aren’t even changing the product so… I’ll just keep on keepin on with that.

Crying – that my baby is really this big. And that he’s only getting bigger. #holdme

Giving – myself some grace about not blogging consistently. I have a million things I want to write about, but life is just more important right now. Oh and finishing the taxes for three businesses.

Laughing – because BTR was recently invited to a “dadchelor” party. And yes apparently this is a real thing! I actually think it’s a pretty clever and fun idea, kind of like a diaper poker party for a dad to be, except making a weekend out of it. Unfortunately BTR can’t go because it’s two weeks after baby 2 is due. And there’s no way he’s leaving me alone with two kids for a weekend that soon!

Loving – reading all of the Day In The Life posts on Julia’s round up! You should definitely head over and read them, 31 bloggers participated this time!

Confused – on how to use my new Target beauty blender sponge. I’ve always been intrigued by the real one, but not willing to pay $20 for it. Target had one for $4.99, #winning! I read you’re supposed to get it wet before using, but that seems weird to me. Anyone have any tips?

Obsessing – over using my big camera. I had my camera class that BTR and Jude gave me for Christmas last weekend and I learned so much! I’ve always been so intimidated by all the buttons on my camera, but now it’s starting to make sense. And obviously I had to go buy a new lens, so a nifty fifty is on its way to me as we speak!

Wishing – I had more tacos. We had dinner last night at our favorite little Mexican restaurant and it was so yummy. And Jude really likes smiley fries!

Needing – a good recipe to take to JSC trivia night on Friday. Something easy and delicious, any ideas for me?


Happy Wednesday friends! I hope you all are having a fabulous week!

    They grow too stinking fast. It’s just not fair. I also find the EOS lawsuit ridiculous. I’ve always loved them and have had no issues. Tacos are a favorite in our house too. Yum!

    • Not a fan of babies getting big! And I’m so glad I’m not the only one who still loves EOS!!

  • Meghan Flinn

    Is it just me or does the blender look like it could be meant for a kinkier purpose !?!

    • DYING!!! 😂😂😂😂 And no I’ve only used it for foundation! 😘

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Dadchelor party?! Ha! But good call on keeping BTR home. That is entirely too soon to fly solo with two kiddos.
    How exciting you’re getting a nifty fifty! Can’t wait to hear how you like it and see the images you capture with it.

    • Seriously I thought it was so funny he got invited to that! But he’s not leaving me alone that soon with 2 kids! And I can’t wait to start snapping more photos!

  • Yes you for SURE get break on blogging…the picture of your taxes gives me a headache just looking at it! Also, why do our babies grow up so fast?? ;(

    • I’ll be doing more taxes all weekend, boooo! And can’t they just stay little forever??

    1. How is Jude possibly that big? STOP. 2. So glad you loved the camera class! Can’t wait to discuss it with you. 3. Had you not mentioned that was a makeup blender I would have been very confused. I looked at the photo and thought, “Where does the food go?” 4. So excited for tacos on our date night next week! 5. EOS lawsuit is ridic. Damn lawyers. :)

    • Make them STOP growing! And now that I sort of understand what’s going on with the camera I need to go back and re-read all your photography posts, maybe they will make sense now! You’re my favorite lawyer! :)

  • I’ve never heard of a Dadchelor party but it actually does sound pretty fun for the Dads! Too bad BTR can’t go, but I TOTALLY understand where you’re coming from! There’s no way I’d let Seth leave me if I had just had a baby either! But it does sound like an interesting concept :)

    • I thought it was so funny! The guy that invited him sent everyone a link to an article about them to justify that it was a real thing! 😂
