Currently {March Edition}

So I'm a little late on one of my favorite monthly link-ups but that's because we are currently without power. Ugh. We were hit hard with storms around 3am on Wednesday and a tornado even touched down just a few miles from us! It was a pretty intense night with not a lot of sleep. Our power has been out for over 24 hours and we're hoping it'll be back on today at some point, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

In an effort to ignore the mess that is my life, I figured I'd update what other things are going on CURRENTLY to start off this month of March. As always, thanks for hosting, Anne and Carrie.

Watching: Too much DIY network. Has anyone else watched First Time Flippers? It basically makes me want to go purchase a dumpy property right now and flip it for some serious dough. Jared and I talk about it all the time and I think we really want to do it one day. Not anytime soon, but I can't imagine how rewarding that is to finish!

Eating: Well, nothing that was in our fridge/freezer. Womp, womp womp. I hate that so many things went to waste with the power outage, so I'm grateful I was able to snag some chicken and dumplings from my in-laws house last night. Yum!

Saying: "I'm stressed." It just feels like between the home selling process, building our new house, losing power, dealing with a feisty 9 month old.... yeah, I'm hanging by a thread.

Wearing: What Jared likes to call my mom uniform ;) Aka- jeans and a zip-up most days. I've graduated from the sweatpants of newborn SAHM days though, that's a positive. Now I'm rocking my Bengals track jacket and a variety of Nike ones (favorite!) too. It feels semi-put-together, but still comfortable.

Posting: As much as I can! I'm terrible at juggling life right now, but I do have a lot of things I want to blog about and share. If our power ever comes back on maybe I'll actually set aside some time this weekend to get a few of them done.

Hope everyone else stayed safe despite the crazy weather ripping through the midwest. While I'm annoyed not to have power, I'm incredibly thankful for my family's safety and for the lack of damage to our home- I know not everyone has been so lucky. Hugs!

  1. Oh no! That is really not what you needed right now, but I'm glad to hear you stayed safe in the weather craziness. And if you're upgrading from yoga pants to jeans in your daily uniform, I say you're winning ;-) Hang in there, lady, and I hope the lights come back on soon!

  2. I'm sorry, I can understand why you are saying you're stressed! :-/ Hoping your power comes back on soon! Derek and I love all those flipping shows...but I'd be way too scared to do it! I have a feeling flipping houses is a job that would take over our whole lives!

  3. I can imagine all of those things are stressful, and then combined? Forget it. You do whatever you need to in order to de-stress!

  5. You may be the only SAHM I know that is wearing jeans. Haha. I wore yoga pants all day every day! :) But I'm sure getting dressed makes you have a more productive day! So glad you have your power back and that everyone is okay!! :)

  10. I'm sorry your food spoiled. I was terrified of that happening when I had a freezer full of frozen breastmilk. Can you imagine??? Hopefully it kicks back on soon.

  11. Oh you poor thing! Losing power is so infuriating, but I hope it'll be back on soon!

  12. That sounds so scary with the tornado! Glad to hear you're all safe though; hope your power returns very soon.

    For the record, I definitely don't have a 9-month-old and wear yoga pants and a zip up every dang day. Can't fight what works!

  13. Yikes! Glad you guys are okay! My mom uniform is stretchy jeans and some kind of a plain tshirt haha. It's changing now because I don't want to stretch all that stuff out but still most days are a variation of that!

  14. I totally dig "The Mom Uniform", wish I was wearing that right now instead of dress pants & a sweater...although, I might like to do the newborn edition with sweatpants instead of jeans. Ha, ha!

  15. Goodness, glad you guys are ok! We had bad storms during the day, but they weren't as bad as they said they were going to get. I feel you on the mom wardrobe. I am there with you. I hope you get your power back soon!

  19. Oh man, that stinks. I'm sorry! But also thankful you didn't have any damage. That definitely could have made the selling process trickier! Hope your power is back by now! Have a good weekend friend!

  20. Ugh, I'm sorry y'all are still out of power! My husband still has friends up there and one of them had the tornado in his neighborhood. So scary! Glad you guys were a bit farther away. Hopefully your power is back soon!!
