Life. My boys. Everything. I am in one of those places where I am just so content lately. Even more than just being content...I'm overly happy and so much in love with life and those in my life. Even though we have been dealt some tough cards lately I am feeling so joyful instead of feeling defeated. That's a God thing. Praise Him. 

Also loving that our most recent vacation has re-ignited my sweet man's passion for fishing. I love to see him get so excited about it. 

Ugh, I really wish I had time to read! I still haven't finished Wild and Free (which I was reading in my last currently post way back in May, here.) One day I will have time to read again. One day. 

Either All Sons and Daughters or the Chris Tomlin with Matt Redman stations on Pandora. Those two are my favorites. And of course, Mason. The boy never stops talking. Ever. Oh and the new Miranda Lambert song, Vice. Miranda is my girl forever and always.

Everything. Ugh. We are still living out those vacation vibes, I suppose. And we've just had so much going on that it's just been easier to grab food lately. Shamefully, I've only cooked a couple of times since we got back from vacation. I am ready to get back on a healthy kick. My body is ready, too. 

Water and Diet Dr. Pepper. I was doing so good and only drinking water for the longest. And then vacation happened. What's better than an ice cold diet soda after a day in the sun?! 

Not much. I finally caught up on Pretty Little Liars and I'm only two episodes behind on the Bachelorette. 

Friends that live too far away! Sigh. Distance is such a pain.

Motivation to get all the things done. My blog email is back up to 107, I have a ton of blogs I need to catch up on, and there are still hundreds upon hundreds of vacation photos that need to be edited. I'm just happy that my house is finally starting too resemble more of a home than a pigsty lately. 

I also need to start school shopping, but I don't want to. Every time I hear the word school I just want to cry. I am not ready for summer to be over and to give my sweet boy back over to those long school days. I want to keep him home with me forever.

And I need to get my booty back into the gym. Like whoa.

Possibly a trip to Houston to visit the aforementioned friend that I miss so much. Brittany, we are going to make this work. 

Mason started karate last night and it was so, so fun to watch. And so freakin' cute.
 (more about this tomorrow)

My sweet Mason Lane. He is the toughest and most brave little guy that I know. He amazes me daily and makes me so dang happy. I am blessed that I get to be his mama.

And that's about all that's currently going on in our little world. What's currently going on with you?


  1. So glad to hear you're feeling content in life! Such a good feeling. I need to school shop too... and I just don't want to!

  2. The joy and contentment you feel is so happy to hear about and an answer to prayer. You are so full of life and truth I am always so happy to read this little blog of yours. Hope you find that motivation. I know some days I just don't have any at all.

  3. I'm happy that you are happy! I'm planning my first "currently" post for next week!

  4. I absolutely love your sunset photos! And I'm with you on the eating... I just can't stop! And ooh let's talk PLL!!

  5. I'm currently sitting in an education workshop-literally. I love hearing about your sweet family. I'm so glad you are happy and loving life. Let vacation continue into your home for a little longer-school will be here before we know it :(

  6. We need to get started on school shopping! It just seems too early!

  7. Aw, I can't wait to hear more about Mason and karate. Hubs and I have been trying to decide what to put Jacob in and Jacob actually suggested karate out of the blue, so we're looking into it.

  8. My Mom, Cash & I are going school shopping tonight & out for dinner. :)

    Your sunset picture is amazing! I'm so happy to hear that you are just so content & happy with where we are at the moment. I continue to pray for you.

  9. I wish I had time to read as well. I used to fly through books, but sadly haven’t picked one up in almost a year. I miss reading! Isn’t it so hard to get back on track eating after a vacation? Good luck!

  10. Amen for being content!
    That sunset shot is GORGEOUS!!!
    While I LOVE back to school shopping - it's SO fun! - it tears at my heart. How in the world is another year of school already upon us?!

  11. I'm a recovering diet pepsis addict myself. I have recently cut it down to one a day and let me tell you that is HARD!

  12. I feel you on wanting to cry thinking about school starting- Kinsey goes in only 6 days!!! Wahhh!

  13. Girl, I am needing some motivation too! I have so much I want to blog about but no time to do it, or maybe I'm just not spending my time appropriately? lol. That could be it. Then we all got hit with some stomach bug this week and have been down for the count for the past couple days. I had high hopes of getting a lot done today and then took a 3 hour nap. Oops. Hopefully the motivation will come soon!
    But seriously, forget the motivation. You sound so happy! That first paragraph gave me a big smile on my face. I love that you are focusing on the positive and not the negative. Often times that is so much harder, but in the end, it's so worth it. xo


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
