I got the idea for this post from Dani Hampton at Sometimes Sweet
This is me, right now. 

Loving: weight lifting. I just started doing it again since I have more time now that the semester has ended. It's so hott outside here in Texas that its no fun (and not very smart either) to get out in the middle of the day to run miles at a time in the direct sunlight. So when Madi goes down for a nap, I use the weights that we have here and a routine I found online and just go! My entire body feels different afterwards. I've really wanted to try CrossFit but I don't think I have the time to do it. If you've tried it, let me know how you like it :)

Reading: this is where you can start to tell that I didn't come up with the idea for this post on my own. I'm not reading anything right now. I've had my head in a textbook for six weeks and I'm about to dive right back in next week so reading has not been a huge priority. I will say that before the semester started, I read An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff and was completely amazed by it. It's such a touching story to read and it makes you believe that there are still good people out there in the world. I'd definitely recommend it. It's available on Nook too :)

Watching: now is when we're going to talk about guilty pleasures I guess. I love Dance Mom's. There, I said it. I set the DVR to record it and I sit down and watch it when I get the chance. Now stop judging me! I also love So You Think You Can Dance! I fast forward through the judging and talking and just watch the performances. If I had a nickel for every time I got the goosebumps or cried over those talented dancers, I'd have some serious dinero. So much talent on that show. Makes me miss dancing! Those are the only real shows I sit down and make time to watch. I'm still deciding if I like The Week The Women Went. 

Thinking about: nutrition. Shocker, right? I've just been seeing so many comments made in various places that are just so far from the truth that it's crazy. Like since a Starbucks drink is "nonfat" it's suddenly good for you. Or that diet food is better for you than the natural versions of things. Or that 100 calories worth of Honey Nut Cheerios are better for you at breakfast than two eggs in coconut oil, which is high in calories. It's just things like that that drive me nuts. But I guess that means I'm headed in the right direction career-wise. 

Anticipating: Madi's second birthday! It's right around the corner. I'm running around getting the last minute details finished and also trying to make sure her cake gets ordered in time. I just can't believe that she is going to be two. I'll have a two year old! Crazy. But we'll save those emotions for a later post ;)

Wishing: that this week with Madi was going by a tad slower. I enjoy this time with her so much, I just wish that I got more of it. She's growing up so fast and learning more and more as the days pass. I'm incredibly lucky to be able to stay home with her when I'm not in school though, and I know that. I just miss her sweet face when I'm in school. How can I not?

Making me happy: I have so many things making me happy right now. Being home with Madi, having Clayton as my husband and spending time together just the three of us. Also, this sweet little boy pictured below. He's such a blessing and he loves his Aunt Taylor already! I can tell :)

  1. I saw your comment on Danielle's Sometimes Sweet blog. Apparently I need to read/learn what you are about nutrition. It sounds like you know your stuff! I did a "Currently" post as well if you'd like to check it out :)
