I always have the best of intentions on school vacation weeks, but the reality is, not a lot gets done…While I love sharing on this blog, it isn’t my first priority my work time is very limited…but I love sharing what I am currently loving, so here is Coffee Talk
Currently listening to:
I listen to a lot of podcasts during my commute and work time, which I haven’t been doing alone this week like I normally do. This means I haven’t been listening to many true crime podcasts because you know, they probably aren’t the best things for kids… 😉
But I have been catching up on one of my favorite parenting podcasts, The Best of Both Worlds and the boys have really been enjoying it too. Normally we listen to But Why but we are all caught up. We usually have a 20-25 minute drive if we are going into town which means the ride is long enough that there is some whining and asking “when are we going to be there?!” which means podcasts are the perfect distraction. We can usually listen to a whole episode roundtrip because many episodes are around 50-55 minutes.
We listened to the episode about Life and Household management systems yesterday and the boys were intrigued. They especially liked hearing about their bedtime routines, especially when they heard some of their kids go to bed at 9! I assured them they are a lot older…which may not be the case but it worked. We have an 8pm bedtime around here and I want to really appreciate that while it lasts!
I did start Over My Dead Body when I was folding laundry last weekend and I have enjoyed it so far.
This commercial, it makes the photographer in me laugh out loud every time!
We are also very into our backyard bird feeders. I never realized how entertaining they could be but it’s been pretty great. We have them outside the back of our house which we can see from our kitchen and dining room which makes them very easy to keep an eye on. We have had all kinds of visitors, even some wild turkeys which were quite exciting!
This guide has been great for identifying our avian visitors and the boys have been keeping a chart to track which ones come by. Winter is such a great time to watch birds because they are so easy to identify with so little color around this time of year. We also have started to see some robins which mean spring isn’t that far away!
Currently shopping for:
I don’t love shopping for swimsuits(does anyone?) but we are going to Florida in April and I figured I better find something. I checked out the Target BOGO swim sale online and I struck out with one but I did find a suit that I really love! I am a one-piece kind of person and this suit is super cute. I am definitely more pear shaped and this fits well and has good coverage without feeling like too much of “mom suit”… For reference, I am a size 8-10 and I ordered a size large. It seems really well made and I like that the bra cups are sewn into the suit (I really dislike when they are the ones that come out and get all scrunched up).
That is all I have time for now but I will be back next week for more things I am currently loving. <3
