Currently: July Edition

It's time again for my favorite monthly link-up with Anne and Jenna :) Sometimes weekly link-ups can just be a little too much/too repetitive but I always love how fun their once a month "Currently" link-up is so I couldn't miss out today! It's making my transition back into blogworld slightly less difficult- so thank you ladies for always hosting. It's a nice way to welcome a new month, too. Currently I'm...


Toasting: Myself and Jared for surviving (almost!) six weeks of parenthood. I don't know why, but six weeks just sound so legit. Like maybe -just maybe- we're getting the hang of things around here.

Going: Nowhere. Haha- it's the truth, boring as it is. I've been pretty holed up in our house during maternity leave, only getting out for doctor's appointments and a couple grocery trips on the weekend while Jared stayed home with little man. It just seems like so much work and unnecessary stress to get out of the house right now. I know there will come a day that it's second nature to be out and about with our baby but for now? I'll stay home, thank you very much!

Smelling: Are you sure you want the new mom to answer this?! ;) Just kidding. Other than the obvious not so sweet smells, I randomly lit a Winter candle this week and I am not ashamed. Sure, it's the middle of a HOT summer but my house can still smell like Christmas if I want it to. Maybe a Christmas in July movie night with Jared is in my future?!

Wearing: HA! Goodness, I picked a hilarious month to join in. These prompts are like the ultimate loser label for new moms. I'm wearing whatever is clean (you never know what that will be) and whatever is most comfortable (lots of yoga pants and leggings) every day. Remember how I don't really get out much? Yeah, makes it easy on the wardrobe ;)

Wishlisting: ALL THE CLOTHES I WANT TO BE WEARING. Since I'm almost 6 weeks post c-section I am feeling ready to add some light exercise into my days. It makes me excited to get back to a healthy weight and to eventually have an excuse to buy some new clothes. Let's hope that come fall it'll be the perfect timing for a few new items for my wardrobe. I'm planning on documenting my post-baby fitness 'journey' on the blog which I'm excited about. I've read some really motivating stories and posts on other blogs so I hope posting about my own will help me stay with it!

What are you all up to right now??

  8. Girl I feel you on this linkup. I read a few of the prompts and I was like "Well this is embarrassing" because #1 my apartment smells like old people and #2 I've been wearing pajamas practically everyday. And then I admitted it on the blog haha!

  11. I love that you lit the winter candle! I stayed home all day every day for months with Gracie, too. It gets so much easier to get out and about. It takes practice, and before you know it it's no big deal at all to take the baby somewhere.

  12. I had a friend comment that she's surprised that she's been able to keep her baby alive when she cant keep a plant alive. I was like ha, yeah well that's a great accomplishment.

  13. So I'm wearing yoga pants every day and I have no excuse :) Also, your christmas candles are kind of making me jealous since I don't have anything but summery scents. I'll make sure I stock some up in the future.

  15. I'm due any day with our first and I'm so ready to purchase non-maternity clothes! I know it'll be a while before I feel comfortable with a size but it's something to look forward to.

    And congratulations!

  16. Congrats on your new role as a mother!! There is nothing wrong with Christmas scents when its hot out - if I had to adhere to only having Christmas scents when it's cold out, I would never smell Christmas!!

  17. Well even if your answers seem "boring" this time around, it's still a record of this time and place in your life, which is a great thing - just think in another 6 weeks when you've REALLY got the hang of this parenting thing, you'll look back and smile :) And that sounds like a great goal for fall! Perfect timing for some new things, I think. Thanks for joining us as always!

  19. LOL @ the ultimate loser prompts for new moms. LOLOL

    I'm wearing "winter" nail polish today so I hear you on your winter candles.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yup, you have "new mom" written all over you, it seems, & that's okay. You crack me up with your winter scented candle. I think when you go out, you should get a summer scent candle. Tee hee! :)

  25. Taking a baby anywhere is a process, the first time I took K to visit someone I felt like I packed the whole house and still forgot stuff. It does get easier once you get the hang of it and even easier once they grow out of all the "stuff".
