Currently.

I feel like there has been so much going on, yet not really. Ever feel like that? I've been thinking about doing a "Currently" post for the last few days and think it'd be a good mini catch up of whats going on currently in my life right now.


These two melt my heart. 



Currently


Watching... Glee (as I write this), but lately my hunny and I have been watching New Girl, and we love it. What other Netflix shows do you guys watch? We've watched a ton! Seriously, lately we've watched Chuck, Leverage, Scandal, Gold Rush.... 


Reading... Have a Little Faith- Mitch Albom, Reached - Ally Condie & Allegiant - Veronica Roth & I  just finished up reading The Fault in Our Stars- John Green. So many good books. Not enough time or free hands! Are we friends on Goodreads? If you have one and we aren't friends, add me. Or just leave a comment with a few of your favorite books. 


Writing... my grocery list/meal plan for the week. We've been trying to do some clean eating/Paleo meals as much as possible. So far, we love it. Though I do have a hard time finding cheaper recipes to add into the mix, it's hard to fit all the fancy seasonings and such into our budget right now. Maybe one day. How do you meal plan? Or do you have any yummy clean/Paleo recipes for us?


Listening... to children destroy my almost clean house. That's right almost clean. There are constantly cute little children crawling/running around destroying whatever is clean, so I just let it happen. As long as they're happy and not actually destroying anything I'm good. 


Thankful...  for those two sweet girls who love to hold each other's hand. They help my heart heal and teach me so much every day. 

Wishing for... a great week.

Happy Friday!!

In-law Drama & Babies.

I'm not sure what makes my in-laws do the things they do. I am however very tired of the way they question every decision I make. 

For example, the fact that I didn't want any visitors while I was in labor with Miss A, my mom and baby sister took me to the hospital and waited till my husband showed up then left to pick up around my house & love my dog. My younger sister stopped by with food for the husband that night, weren't there for more than 5 minutes total. 

Or that I didn't want kids or very many visitors in the hospital after I had her. I didn't need a crowded room while I was relaxing and enjoying my first hours as a mom. (If you like to do that, that's fine I'm not judging, its just not what I wanted to have happen.)

Every time they threw a fit. Complaining, saying it was weird. Like when they got mad because I was tired of people showing up whenever with whoever they wanted after I got home and said something about it. My house, my baby, my rules. 

The newest thing is the fact that I'm having my girls share a room. I just finished putting the toddler bed back into the nursery & setting up the new crib. They fit perfect in that room together. I grew up always sharing a room, I loved it. Once I was older I got my own room, just when I started feeling like I needed my own space. And again, my house, my girls, my rules. 

Every one parents different. My husband and I have agreed on a certain way that makes us all comfortable and happy. It's worked for us for over 2 years now. My sisters and their boyfriends choose to parent different than us, as do my brother, his fiance and his son's mom. They do what works for them. I might not agree with their styles, but they know their kids and I'm gonna keep my mouth shut, it's not my place

Having our new addition joining us so soon really has me on edge. I'm not ready for any drama with my in-laws. They're just going to need to accept that I do things different than them. I don't want an audience at the birth of Miss M, Miss A will be with my family, we'll only have a few visitors at the actual hospital and then people can schedule a time to visit at home after. It's really that simple. 

I don't know what to do. I'm starting to stress out about what they're going to do. I don't need my brother in law telling me that I need medication, because I like things a certain way. (Still can't believe he said that, I should have strangled him.)

 But really friends, what do you do?
