It's been awhile since I did a "Currently" post about me, and with so much going on (always), I figured it would be a good time to let you all in on what I'm up to.
Loving: I've discovered this new found love for running. I sort of got in a running rut lately. I've always loved it, but lately it's been more of a chore than anything. I started speed training and seeing a longer distance associated with a shorter time is exhilarating. I've never ran for time, it's always been to just run farther. But Saturday I ran 5k in 35 minutes and walked out of the gym feeling like I had just conquered the world. I've certainly ran farther than 5k, but running it that quickly was an awesome feeling. It definitely renewed my appreciation for the sport.
Reading: Silver Linings Playbook. I'm so excited to read something that I want to read. I have three textbooks that I pretty much read all the time for school and that definitely gets old. Over the summer I read constantly, so it's nice to crack open a book that I've picked out myself. I've heard lots of good things about this book so I'm hoping that I like it as much as everyone else did. Also, I'm starting a book after this one that is in preparation for the Whole 30 challenge I'm doing. Fingers crossed that I can read both in one week ;)
Thinking about: So so many things. I've been wanting to spice up Madi's room for awhile, and those projects are on my Spring Break To-Do List. I've been wanting a desk for my room, and to hang some things on the wall. Just little things here and there to add some homey-ness. Every once in awhile I get sort of ancy and have to redecorate or rearrange everything. That's how I've been feeling lately.
Anticipating: Hmm... Taking Madi somewhere fun on Wednesday with Clayton, and also going to the Houston Children's Museum on Thursday. Izzy and Holly are coming with us. The last time we went was last summer and they were only really old enough for the toddler play area. Hopefully they will enjoy the actual museum more this time around. If not, we know exactly where to take them :) I'm still thinking about where to take her Wednesday...
Making me happy: Looking at my calendar and seeing "first day of spring" coming up soon, planning fun things for Madi and I to do, project time while Madi naps, starting a new book, having a week off of school, loaded Starbucks gift cards, ice cream with my brother-in-law, celebrating Mimma's birthday, hearing Madi say things like "It's not MY fault!" (so cute!), days where the wind never stops blowing, spending hours with my neice and Madi, planning special surprises, hanging up pictures on the wall, watching Madi fall asleep each night.
Once again, thanks to Dani Hampton over at Sometimes Sweet for the inspiration for this post.
