Currently: November


Listening: Ever since we got Taylor Swift's new cd last week, it has pretty much been on non stop on the iPod in the house and in the car.  I'm loving it but I'm ready to mix it up with some other music this week!

Loving:  I love fall.  It has been such a great fall here.  Perfect weather.  Today it is sunny and the leaves are still hanging on on some of our trees.  It is definitely chilly but not cold yet.  After the little preview of winter we had on Halloween with snow and freezing conditions, it reminded me that I am not ready for winter.  I hate the freezing cold and the snow that seems to last forever.  If it only lasted a month, I'd probably be okay!

Thinking: People who get excited about an extra hour of sleep when they turn the clocks back clearly don't have small children.  That just means my kids who had been sleeping in til 8 or 9 were up earlier.  Not fun!!  It didn't help that we were out of town so they were up early because they weren't in their normal beds and routines.  And then driving home it was dark so early that I kept thinking it was hours later than it was.  I feel like I'm less productive at night when it gets dark so early.

Wanting:  I have so many ideas in my head and haven't had much of a chance to create lately.  Between our busy fall and prepping for tutoring and religious ed each week, I just don't seem to have as much creating time.  I probably need to schedule out some blog posts for the next few weeks so I can focus on more creating.

Needing:  My little peanut turns one tomorrow and we are having 3 mini parties instead of one big one.  I'm over the big party idea and trying to get both sides of the family together.  Plus my husband comes from a divorced situation so that always adds an extra element into get togethers.  So we are keeping this small and easy.  I'm ordering a cake and we are ordering pizza for the party this weekend.  Keeping it simple! I'm going to a bakery I haven't used before so I need to pick out what flavors we want.  I made her healthy carrot cake cupcakes for her mini party this past weekend and for her actual birthday tomorrow.

Reading:  I'm not too far into this book.  It seems good and pretty predictable so far.



Heading over to link up with Farley and see what everyone else is up to right now!

  1. I don't have kids so I'm definitely one of the people excited to get an extra hour of sleep. But I know what you mean about it being dark so early; I'm pretty sure I have seasonal depression, so I always get the winter blahs. Happy birthday to your little one!!

    1. Thank you! I used to love the extra hour too!! I definitely get the winter blahs too when it drags on for too long. Usually by February I'm ready for a vacation somewhere sunny and warm!!

  2. Oh the joy of daylight savings...Even my husband was like "we get an extra hour of sleep" I just laughed, he didn't realize...LOL. PS I am totally in love with the Taylor Swift CD and am already scoping out tour dates...Luckily I can blame it on my 17 year old sister ;)

    1. My husband said the same thing....then said well we get an extra hour, it just might not be sleep. Um...who cares then??? Ha! The joys of small children.

      I just heard the tour was announced. We've only seen her as an opening act. But I mentioned the other night that she was touring and that we'd never seen her do her own show. We'll see if my hubby remembers.

  3. How is that cd by the way? I am 28 and am obsessed with T. Swift. :) Love the blog, very cute. I agree with the daylight savings time, but....it was nice driving to school with the sun coming up this morning!

    1. It is really good. Much more pop than any other cd. And a lot more fast paced upbeat songs versus ballads. I definitely recommend it!

  4. Hi Sara,
    I agree! Daylight Savings Time Sucks!!! Levi was up at 5am this morning! UGH! I had quit drinking soda...oh well. :) I watch The Voice and Taylor Swift is on there as the celebrity helping the coaches coach their teams through the knockout rounds. Going to have to check out her new cd. Congrats on your littlest turning one. Such a special birthday. We didn't get to celebrate Suri's first birthday with her so we really threw a big bash for Levi's first. We did A Very Hungry Caterpillar theme. It was so much fun! Lots of fun memories to treasure. We had everyone who came sign a hardcover copy of the book for Levi. He'll have that his whole life. Our weather has finally turned and it is AMAZING! I'm in love. Windows open, breeze blowing through the house. Since Levi was up at 5 we are headed out to get mail so he will take a nap in the truck on the way. Later!
    Joya :)

    1. Oh Joya! And this is why we have become blogging friends. So many similarities! I saw Taylor on The Voice last week and loved it. We don't watch it regularly but catch episodes here and there. I need to check out Maroon 5's new one. I love them and have seen them in concert a few times. We did a Very Hungry Caterpillar bday for my oldest's second bday. How funny! Probably similar ideas courtesy of Pinterest!! :-) We even found Eric Carle fabric and my mom made her a dress to wear with caterpillars on it. I just got home from getting party supplies and I grabbed a book for everyone to sign on Saturday. How funny! I haven't done that for either of them yet but I figured the little one could use some new books for her library since she only has a few books that are just hers.

      Let's hope our kids all get used to the time change soon and sleep in tomorrow!!
