Currently (February 2017)...

Reading waaaay more than I did in 2016, that's for sure! So far in 2017 I have already finished 6 books - I'm pretty sure that's more than I got to in 2016 altogether. In January I read All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda, That Night and Those Girls by Chevy Stevens, and The Lost Girls by Heather Young and so far in February I have read Whispers by Lisa Jackson and The Girls in the Garden by Lisa Jewell. Other than really enjoying All the Missing Girls the others have only been so-so but at least I'm reading!

Listening to my same ole' playlist on Spotify just with a few new additions including Carly Pearce's Every Little Thing and Sam Hunt's Drinkin' Too Much. I'm pretty sure I also added every single Eric Church song to the playlist after his concert - I'm obsessed. 

Celebrating that we've almost made it halfway through February. Spring is coming - only 37 more days! Halle-freakin-lujah

Watching Schitt's Creek on Netflix and Game of Thrones when I'm at MN's place. I'm late to the party on GOT but now that I've started watching I can't get enough of it.  Having to wait weeks in between watching is super annoying because I just want to binge watch all the seasons right now! MN was the one who introduced me to Schitt's Creek which he thinks is hilarious since its a Canadian show. I wanted to hate it since he was so smug about it (haha) but it's a good watch. 

Drinking Black Cherry 'soda' (I hate that the can calls it that - it's called pop!) the last few days. I had forgotten that it existed until my brother messaged me on the weekend reminding me how I used to use it in sno-cones and afterwards I got the hugest craving for it - I rarely drink pop but I had to have it. 

Waiting on my nephew to make his arrival! Kels' due date is on Tuesday (Valentine's Day) so he could be here any day now - eeeek! I bought some super cute things from the Cat & Jack line at Target last week and I cannot wait for him to wear them - he's going to look so handsome <3. Does anyone else wish that they made the Cat & Jack line in adult sizes or is that just me...

Working on some baby shower plans for when baby Mathison finally makes his arrival. Around here it's standard to have the shower after the baby is born so everyone can meet him/her and love on them at the shower and not knowing when he's actually going to make his arrival is making it hard to set a date - I just want him to be here!

Wearing some new finds from when I wandered around the aisles of Target and Wal Mart in Minot last week because my train was delayed (again... ugh) by over 3 hours and I had tons of time to kill. I got this shirt from Target and three long sleeve shirts at Wal Mart (one a Harry Potter one that is sooo comfy and cute). I normally don't even look at the clothes in Wal Mart but I'm glad I did! The best part? All 4 tops cost me less than $40 Canadian. 

Anticipating Mn's third visit to the GWN next weekend. It's another super quick trip and there's not much to do around here these days with the way our weather has been but Krickit will be happy to see him!

Loving how much I've managed to get accomplished in February already considering the fact that I'm sick again. I've almost crossed 5 things off of this list this month!

Making a list of new recipes to try for my goal of making at least one new recipe a week in February. On Monday I made Creamy Chicken Noodle soup (its sooo good y'all - one of my go to recipes) and copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits to go with them. Technically these weren't new recipes since I make the soup all the time and have made the biscuits before but I used a different recipe this time and they were so much better than the ones I've made in the past.  

It has been a loooong week y'all - hence why this is the first day I've made it here this week. I didn't get home from Minnesota until Monday morning and by Monday night the plague was back in full force - I don't know why I can't kick it! It never really went away but I was feeling so much better than I had been at the beginning of January but now I'm right back to square one.  Don't worry though, I'm not just complaining while not doing anything about it, I just can't get into my doctor until Monday. Hopefully by Monday I'll have another round of antibiotics in hand to finally kick this and can get back to feeling human again which will mean back to this space more than once a week...  


  1. Game of Thrones is so good. I started watching before the fourth season started, and I am completely hooked. Like I read the fan theories on the Interwebs hooked.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed All the Missing Girls because that's on my to-read list!

    Sorry you're sick. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Always love “Currently” posts :) Congrats for reading more than you did last year—6 books is so great! And YES to Game of Thrones, I’m so obsessed and love that you’re binging the seasons now! So happy for your family with your nephew arriving any day! Hope you had a great weekend and have a wonderful week ahead!

    1. I just wish I could binge watch all of them at once - this having to wait weeks in between watching thing is TORTURE! haha

  4. YAAAAS it's ALWAYS pop! I hate myself a little bit because Michael calls it soda and makes fun of me when I say 'pop' so I've caught myself saying soda a few times and it makes me feel like I'm betraying my upbringing. HAHAHA. I'm so dramatic. OMG that "Merlot, it's me" shirt!!!
