I’ve seen this blog post circling around the interwebs, and thought it would be a fun one to do for myself. Yes, I was that geek that would take surveys and forward them on to my friends back in the late 1990’s when we finally got the internet. Oy.
Lately I’ve been…
Making: Lots of smoothies in my nutribullet. It’s so hot outside and smoothies are a great breakfast option.
Cooking: Pretty much the same boring stuff, I seem to go in a rotation. I need to make new things!
Drinking: Tons and tons of water! It’s so hot outside, it’s necessary to stay hydrated. Plus, it’s just good for you!
Reading: Nobody’s Cuter Than You. My Bible study group is reading it after we read her last book, Antelope in the living room. Both great reads that have me in stitches every chapter.
Wanting: The weather to cool off. It’s hard to go for walks with Emma Kate, even at 7:00 in the morning.
Looking: Forward to going to the beach next week! Spending time with Bobby and my parents is always fun!
Playing: A lot with Emma Kate. She is very mobile now so now she chases after toys and it’s fun to see which direction she goes first!
Wasting: too much time on Facebook. Such a time suck.
Wishing: Moms, and women in general would be more encouraging and uplifting towards each other. So many women are so insecure in themselves they feel like they have to tear others down, which makes me sad for them. Life is too short! Be kind!
Enjoying: The daylight that lasts well past 8:00. I dread the darkness at 5:00, it depresses me!
Waiting: Ha. For a LOT of things to happen. I’m not so good at the waiting. I think God may be trying to teach me something…
Liking: Nashville. I just started watching it on Hulu. Anyone else a fan?
Wondering: Why I am such a worrier. Things always work out in the end, I just struggle with the waiting parts.
Loving: That 4th of July is this weekend! Loving all the flags I am seeing around town, and the patriotic wreaths, décor, etc.
Hoping: Emma Kate would finally crawl..and she did on Saturday! yay!
Needing: to wash my car. I went to a baby shower in the middle of the woods a couple of weeks ago and the driveway was red mud. It won’t come off even after driving in the rain.
Wearing: shorts and dresses. It’s sadly way too hot for capris and pants, so I will be in shorts and dresses until oh…October?
Following: Along with all of the presidential stuff. It makes my head hurt to think we still have a year and a half of all this!
Noticing: Where people “missed” while fertilizing their grass. I know it sounds weird, but have you ever noticed? It’s funny when you can see huge strips in people’s yards where they missed. Oops!
Knowing: That I have the best family ever. The end.
Thinking: Like a baby. Down on my hands and knees, trying to see what she is going to try to “get into” now that she can crawl. It’s a whole new ball game!
Feeling: a little lonely lately. Making local friends as an adult is hard stuff.
Bookmarking: Photography courses online. I want to take one…someday…when I have time…
Opening: A couple of early birthday gifts. It’s almost my birthday month!
QOTD: Answer one of the “lately’” prompts for yourself in the comments.
Great blog post! Lately I’ve been looking forward to our vacation visiting family in Virginia Beach, eating fresh seafood, and watching the waves crash onto the beach!
I can’t wait for the beach!

I LOVE that homegirl is crawling!!! So much fun!!!!
I agree completely about making friends as an adult. We moved to a new neighborhood right before my daughter was born (8 months ago), and I still feel like I know no one. It makes for very long days, especially for a stay at home mom.
Agreed! As a work from home mom I don’t see a whole lot of folks!
Karen :0) says
Love that she’s crawling now!! Yay! Have fun baby proofing! 🙂
Yay for EK crawling. So funny you mentioned those books because a few months ago I came across that author’s blog on accident. It’s cool to know her book is circulating around!
She is SO funny. Love it.

I love EK’s pigtails!! I know you didn’t ask for advice on ways to meet new people in a new place but what worked for me when I moved to Omaha was joining young professional groups in my new city, joining Junior League, and reaching out to bloggers!
Good ideas. 🙂 Not many other bloggers I know of around here. Junior League isn’t really my thing. The Jackson junior league was “featured’ in the movie The Help. LOL!
Love this post! EK is so cute. And it is SO hard making friends as an adult! No one warns you about that!

I am a BIG fan of Nashville and have been watching it since the beginning. So glad Emma Kate started crawling, yippee! Its a blessing and a lot of work!! Haha. Enjoy!
I love Nashville! I completely agree on making new friends as an adult. I’m local and would love to do coffee or something! The only way I met my adult friends when I moved to Jackson was through church. Thank goodness for finding church friends.
We have a great church life group and I have casual friends there but not “close” friends KWIM? It’s hard bc they already all were friends before I came and everyone is busy with their kids
And coffee sounds great 🙂
