Currently {14.02.13}

Loving: The fact that it's Valentine's Day... Because that means that all the Valentine's merchandise and advertising will soon be done and dusted! It's not that I don't like Valentine's Day, it's more that I feel like we hardly had a break from Halloween-Thanksgiving-Christmas before having the next holiday. I suppose now the stores will be filled with Easter goodies?

 My last trip to the library was a mad dash as I didn't have the stroller and a certain little someone was going CRAZY shouting and running around in there, so I didn't make it past the C section and came home only with a couple of Harlen Coben's! Yet to finish the first one though, they're both just more thrillers.

Watching: Still stuck on Downton Abbey! We got through that first season in a little over a week... I'm trying to catch up so we can watch the current season as it airs. We are both hooked, well and truly - I'm wondering why we didn't watch it before now?!?!

Listening to: My packing music has been Abba... I know if Mitch was at home he'd be blocking his ears, but Mr Oliver approves! He LOVES dancing away to it!

Creating: I'm sad to say, nothing :-( My fabric & sewing machine are now all packed up but even before that, I have been so distracted - I just haven't been feeling creative. I'm looking forward to setting up my craft room though and giving some new ideas a try.

Thinking about: What I can attack with chalkboard paint... Mitch just painted up our cheapie Ikea kids set with chalkboard paint & it looks awesome! So much so that I'm feeling ready to join the chalkboard craze. Ideas, anyone?

Making me happy: The thought that I'm going to be seeing the girls in TWO WEEKS TODAY!!! Yup, that's right - only 2 weeks until our Disney trip!

Looking forward to: Being unpacked and settled in our new house. I hate living in limbo and although the period between signing a new lease and moving has been reasonably short, it's still frustrating. When I get something in my head, I want it done, NOW! I am going to be breathing a sigh of relief once we are all unpacked and our the keys to our current house are handed over.

Happy Thursday & happy Valentine's Day everyone!


  1. Happy Valentine's Day to you and your family! :D

  4. I think I'm the only one not on the Downton kick! I think I should fix this?

    And cute table! Such a cute idea for the little one!

  5. I am going crazy with chalkboard paint too! It's really a lot fun. I seriously sit around the house and think hmmm...can I chalkboard paint that!? :)

  6. I agree it feels like one holiday rolls into another.

    Congrats on the new house!

  7. Love this post and it's so true about stores rushing from Holiday to Holiday! Time to smell and enjoy the roses! Great blog, found you on the link up "xoxo Rebecca". We are your newest followers!

  8. I painted the end of our kitchen cabinet with chalk board paint. LOVE it! When I'm cooking dinner, LP can be coloring out of the way, yet still where I can see him. :)
