{Currently}

It has been quite a while since I've done a currently post. My life certainly isn't riveting, but I thought I'd do one anyway as an update on what's going on around here.
First of all, these two are keeping me on my toes! Sean's been working crazy long hours so it has just been me and the kiddos a lot. We try to get out and hit the park daily, but this rain is really cramping our style.
Obsessing over...
Luce's sleep routine. It's a hot mess. It was bad enough that she is co-sleeping and nursing to sleep, but now she's waking up multiple times each hour to nurse. So yes, basically all night long. She won't sleep unless she's nursing, but she won't take a paci. I'm about at my wit's end. 😩 S.O.S.
On a positive note, these are also a current obsession...

Working on...
Practicing my photography. I've always had a dslr and a love for taking pictures, I've just never had the time to pursue it. I'm practicing my heart out and studying up. If you follow me on Instagram, or have been paying any attention around here you may have noticed. If you, or anyone you know is looking for  *super* affordable photos (aka rookie photos) hit me up! 

Thinking about...
Finding a job. Unless some of you line up for pictures or need some Spark or Rodan+Fields skincare. 😜 Just something part time. Something to help out around here, help us reach our goals sooner. I'd have to find an affordable daycare though, or maybe an in home sitter? Any recommendations/leads? 
While I'm here, what's everyone doing for Father's Day? What are your gift ideas??

Anticipating...
Wow, let's see. The days are pretty mundane around here lately. I'd say maybe Father's Day? Henry will be gone which is always a bummer, but it will be fun to celebrate Sean's first year as a father. Also a fun catering job! I'm looking forward to catering tacos for a dear friend's birthday. 🌮 

Listening to...
I'm drawing a blank. I feel like I never get to listen to music anymore. Henry talks so much these days that he's always talking to me in the car haha, and when he's not he asks for his music. I hear a lot of toddler songs and Taylor Swift lol. Actually Sean and I were trading music the other day and I shared 'Boy,' by Lee Brice and 'Slow Hands,' by Niall, those are two of my current faves!

Eating...
I found a fiesta quinoa steam bowl at Aldi the other day and decided to give it a try. It wasn't too bad, it even had a little kick to it. It's a great healthy option full of protein and veggies. Otherwise I'm eating a lot of egg whites, natural PB, low-carb tortillas and green beans lol.

Wishing...
I wasn't sleep deprived and I could find a dream work-from-home job. That's a lot to ask haha. Also wishing we were taking a vacation this year. They're always a nice refresher, aren't they?
I'm also randomly wishing I had one of those "816" hats. Anyone else?

See, life is absolutely riveting right now haha. I'm hoping to share some non-mom, non-kid related stuff on the blog here soon, so stick with me! lol. I'm getting my hair done today (YAY), so once I'm done with that I'll get to work!
xx,
