Currently: May Edition

I love this link-up! Have I mentioned that every time I've written a post for it? Probably. Oh, well ;) It's another edition of "Currently" with Anne and her co-host this month is Nancy. Join in, comment, link-up, meet new friends. Ready, go! 

Baking - Truthfully, I can't remember the last time I baked anything. Since we are living in someone else's home we've split dinner duty, but I certainly haven't been getting all Martha Stewart over here. Although I'm definitely dreaming of what I can make in our new kitchen very, very soon!

Listening (to) - Lots of classical music in the car. So within the past couple of weeks T has decided he really does not like his carseat and is sure to let us know it. For the entire drive. If you catch my drift. I've tried a few different things with no luck, but putting on a classical music radio station seems to help him chill out some. It's still not perfect, but it's an improvement and I'll take it.

Loving - How close we are to moving into our new house. It's all Jared and I can do to not drive over and see it every single day. We are just a couple weeks away which doesn't even seem possible!

Planting - Again, nothing, seeing as we don't have anywhere to plant anything yet. However, we did receive a really nice plant from Jared's grandma's funeral (in March) that will be a lovely treasure in our new home.

Remembering - That everything in life is a season, a phase. A mom friend mentioned it recently and it's just so true. It's a great reminder when you have kids, but it can be applied to any situation, I think. Whether it's a job scenario, an opportunity, a dream you're chasing or something you're struggling with like a health issue or a broken heart. Nothing lasts forever and you ARE strong enough to make it through whatever season you're currently in. 

Psst- Next month I get to cohost this linkup with Anne and I'm pretty pumped. Put it on your calendar- June 7th!! :)

  5. How exciting to finally be moving soon! I remember those days of carseat struggles. I used to play mixes of kids songs that we could sing-along to. Whatever can get you through that car ride!! I love your remembering quote. It's something that I can really connect with right now. Thanks for linking up!

  6. Spencer went through a phase like that in his car seat, too! I found that playing the Wiggles really improved his mood ;)

    And yay for co-hosting in June! You'd better believe I'll join!

  7. Yes, excellent words of wisdom - I tell myself that all the time too. And yayayayaya for the season of moving in to your brand new home :) You'll have to pick a great recipe to bake and christen the new oven with...

  13. We used to drive by our house all the time when it was being built too because it was so much fun to see how much it had changed! You're down the fun part now when all the details that you picked out are starting to come together!

  14. I bet you are counting down the seconds until you get to move in!!! Such a great reminder about all things in life being just a season. So true! I have to laugh at the car seat thing. Isn't it crazy how one day kids just love or dont love something anymore???
