Currently : May

Yay May!
Bring on the warm temperatures and flowers!
(sun's out, chunky thighs out)

Here's what's going on in our neck of the woods...
(linking up with Anne and Nancy)

Baking: I need your ideas! We are hosting an early Mother's Day this weekend and I need an easy, yummy treat! My mom and I made this over Easter and it was quite yummy.

Listening: I flew through S-Town and Missing Richard Simmors, just finished up Up and Vanished and in the car I just started Grace Not Perfection (which I am LOVING). Though I keep wanting to highlight things the author says so I may need to pick up a hard copy soon.

Loving: I have a full review post coming about this but we used Shipt for the first time this past weekend and I am in LOVE.  The short story is someone does your grocery shopping and then brings your groceries to your house...yes please.

Planting: Surprisingly we've only been to the nursery once this Spring but I can only assume there are many more trips in our future.  I can't wait to go and make our yearly choices of what to plant.  For me, the more color the better!
I'm hoping to start back up my vegetable garden this summer too!

Remembering:  With each week and month that passes I always think back to where LM was the month previously and can't believe how much he's growing and learning!

What an adorable little boy you have ~ love the cool dude shades! Happy Mother's Day!

Little misters in cool shades = the best.

And how was Up and Vanished? I've seen it mentioned a couple of times now, and it seems like it might be up my alley.

And your first Mother's Day! So fun. I would take somebody making me that cake (or delivering my grocieries!!) to celebrate, for sure.

I totally forgot about the Richard Simmons podcast! Adding that to my list right now!

Also, what a cutie! Our daughter just turned 1 last month, and it's crazy when you start thinking about how fast time goes by.

I haven't listened to the Richard Simmons podcast, but have heard a lot about it. Our local grocery stores have shopping services that sound similar to Shipt. I haven't tried them out, though I definitely see the benefits! Thanks for linking up!

You need to start listening to Convicted! I think you'll love it!

1. Little Mister is TOO CUTE! Love him!
2. Anything that you make for Mother's Day will be perfect. (Or order out!). It is just the getting together that is important.
3. I had lunch with Richard Simmons once many years ago, and you have not missed a thing. Nasty little man.

S town was EXCELLENT!
I want to do missing richard simmons - was it good?!
I really liked the first installment of Serial and I'm listening to Sword & Scale a lot recently (all pretty dang creepy!)

Those LIPS!!! Oh my goodness! He's a cutie! Books: I've not heard of ANY of those! I'll have to scope them out. Savor every moment with that baby boy! (Dropping by from the Currently Link-up.)
