Currently: August Edition

Two blogs posts in one week and it's only Wednesday? What has gotten into me, right?! ;) It's time for my favorite post and link-up of the month, of course!  I'm joining in with Anne and her cohost of the month, Shea, for the Currently link-up. Check out their blogs and link-up, it's fun! I'm Currently...

Snacking On: 
Blackberries. I have been popping them like crazy this past week- yum! I seriously cannot get enough of them. Bonus, T loves them too and we can share :)

Anticipating:
Another big month of selling books as an Usborne consultant! I met all my goals for the first month which was super exciting as someone totally new to the world of direct sales. The books truly do make it easy though, because I love them and anyone who checks them out loves them as well. I need to meet quite a few goals in month two in order to promote up, eek! I'm ready to put the work in and make it happen.


Borrowing:
Lawn tools? Ha! The list of things we want/need with a new house grows daily it seems. In the meantime, I'm thankful for friends and family that let us borrow stuff we just aren't quite ready to purchase at the moment. (Psst- for Christmas I will take Lowes gift cards, please and thank you ;))

Admiring:
My adorable kid! While he can be a total monster from time to time (I'm talking to you, one-year molars) I also just can't get over how stinkin' awesome he is most of the time. I look at him learn and do new things every week and can't help but admire "my work" ya know? He is at such a fun age and he's my best little buddy, even on the hard days. And yes, our selfie game is strong.

Purchasing:
Honestly, nothing. We are back on track, back to sticking to our budget and keeping our wallets closed. Other than the necessities, we won't be spending "for fun" for awhile now. The house needs are a priority but even those we are doing little by little. Gosh, being an adult is so much fun ;)

Link-up and tell me what you're currently up to!

  4. Way to go being back on budget. It's so tempting to want to get everything done for the house done right this minute, but it's definitely worth the wait!

  7. Good for you for staying on track with your budget! We started off the summer strong with budgeting, but unfortunately July was a doozy. Those selfies of you and your kiddo are adorable!

  8. Aw, cute selfies! I sell for Usborne too but I've been pretty lax in selling the past couple months so I need to figure things out!

  9. We moved into our house last November and asked for nothing but Lowe's/Home Depot gift cards for Christmas as well! It's crazy what you don't realize you need until you absolutely have to have it! T is such a cutie -- I think he looks a lot like you!
