April Currently

Time for currently for April with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade.  March was gone in the blink of an eye.  I'm not going to complain because that just means that we are closer to warm weather!!!
 Listening:  I currently have Ellen on in the background as I work on my lap on the couch.  The girls are having late naps after we were out all morning/afternoon at a science center and playing with cousins/second cousins.

Loving:  Salt and Vinegar Chips are my latest obsession.  I've had them before and liked them but didn't think much of it.  Then I ate them more when I was pregnant with the girls because I was obsessed with slurpees and somehow thought the two went together.  I bought a bag the other day and got hooked again and have continued buying them ever since.  I especially love them in a kettle chip so they are super crunchy.  My husband absolutely hates them.  Can't even stand the smell of them.  I know they are smelly but I LOVE them!!  Maybe that's why I like them so much...I know I don't have to share!

Thinking:  I have had a week where I feel like my to do list is out of control.  I spent the beginning of the week trying to get two Easter products posted so now I feel like I have so many other things to do - blog, scrapbook, clean up the house, get ready for this weekend, etc.  I've been good this week about getting up before the girls but I've also been staying up late which means less sleep.  So I am giving myself permission to just relax.  If I don't blog or scrapbook, life will go on.  I miss my husband and we need to just hang out in the same room for a night.  He has plans to work late so I'm thinking tonight might be a good night to just chill together and not do any work once he gets home.

Wanting:  New clothes.  This is a problem for me every year.  I want new stuff.  My new love of instagram and blog reading doesn't help because I see stuff and want to add it to my closet.  I try to be good and not buy clothes very often.  I tried to get some things from Old Navy last week and struck out big time - I wanted to love Pixie pants but they just didn't look right on me.  I bought a few things last weekend with my sister using her employee discount at AE.  I got some jeans but I can't say that I love them or that they are super comfortable yet.  I am ready to toss half the clothes in my closet because they have fuzzy balls on them.  Doesn't help that after a long winter of being inactive, most of my clothes don't fit very well.

Needing:  We are hosting Easter dinner so I need to get to Costco and the grocery store to get the rest of the food that we need.  I think I have all of my "bunny" shopping done so it is mostly just food and if a new dress for me happened to come home, I wouldn't be sad.  My parents are going to watch the girls tomorrow morning so that I can do all of my running around.

EGGS-plain your name:  When we first got married, my husband created a profile for me on his Playstation.  He put Sara J (like he would have other Sara's using it or something??) and said that sounds like a store/boutique name.  So when I started making crafts and then when I started selling on TpT I used it.  Plus I liked that it didn't use my full name.  Even though I wasn't in the classroom when I started TpT, I was still technically employed and on leave for a year so I didn't want there to be any potential issues.  Then I started adding Creations to the end but didn't officially change it on TpT.  I think you can now change it without losing all of your followers and links so I might add Creations soon but I decided to use it for the blog, too.  If I had to do it all over again, I probably would have thought of a cutesy name like everyone has. I didn't realize that was "a thing" when I started my store so I just used my name.  But after a few years in, I don't want to change it now.
