Currently: My Life

Currently dreaming of hot weather and days by the pool.  Mr. and I are heading to Scottsdale, AZ in April with another couple and I am so excited!!!  We rarely, on three previous occasions, have done a trip without the children and I think this is going to be a blast.  Although I really enjoy having the  kids along, I also feel that when opportunity presents itself for Mr. and I to make new memories, just us, it's something that helps us reacquaint ourselves with the carefree, fun, younger and more adventurous versions of ourselves and reminds us why we decided to do life together in the first place.  Also super pumped to have a real life meeting with Jodie from Jodie's Touch of Style.

Currently reading The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah and so far so good.  I absolutely loved her book the Nightingale, and in fact it was my favorite book of  2018!  I recently finished reading The Plum Tree by Ellen Marie Wiseman, and  I give it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐!  It's set during WWII in Germany.  It follows a young woman, in love with a Jew, and how she copes with the years of racism, fear, war, and disappointment in her own country.  It's an excellent read, with romance, history, family, internal conflict, as well as an interesting perspective of how German people felt, lived and coped with the war. 

Currently watching The Bachelor, CAN"T STOP!!!!  HELP!  Who will Peter choose?  How will it all end?  Ah, the drama.  LOL! 
Also watching the series  Offspring on Netflix and absolutely love following Nina's life over  seven seasons.  Watching her quirky self, along with her family and friends navigate modern life is hilarious.  This is a great show to binge watch and I enjoy ending my hectic days with it.

Currently eating EVERYTHING.  Seriously, the snacking at night needs to STOP.  Sigh.  I mentioned out loud that I was thinking of doing a No Junk Food challenge and the kids want in too.  We actually eat very healthy but all have our own type of treat daily, so we are seriously debating doing it and supporting each other starting Monday.  You heard it here first. 

Currently it's still WINTER but I am hopeful we will have the arrival of an early spring.  So currently my wardrobe still consists of sweaters, leggings/pants, boots, warm coats, toques and mitts.  Here are a few of my favorite outfit selfies from the last month.

Currently BUSY.  I know everyone is, but work has been super busy and it's report cards and interview time in the life of a teacher.  As a mom we are getting into dance competition season.  So I decided at the beginning of 2020 to take a week to unplug during each season.  I will be unplugged from Monday, March 9 -15th.  No FB.  No IG.  No blog post next week.  Sorry, I just have to do this. Thank you for being so kind and understanding.  I'll be back Friday, March 20th with new energy!  Until then 😘.  


  1. I've heard Arizona is so nice! That will be a great trip together. You always have such great outfits for any season. That floral print dress is so pretty. I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Oh, we are just back from Phoenix. Always have a great time there. The weather is gorgeous. The landscape so unique. If you are looking for a beautiful place to hike, explore White Tanks. It is stunning.
    Enjoy your getaway!!

  3. Love your spring like outfits! :) Offspring is the best - it was very popular here when it was on TV, it's great you can watch it on Netflix!

    Hope that your week is off to a good start! Wet and rainy here!
