Currently June!! :) YAY

June June June June... can you believe it?  I am sad to say that this is my first post in one month...YIKES!!! As many of you know 6 weeks ago, my husband and I welcomed our first child into the world.  Having Hudson has been amazing, however there hasn't been much time for anything other than what we call the circle of life currently: eat, sleep, change a diaper, repeat.....  We're loving life right now though!! 

I will do better I promise this month to do some posting as we are all winding down the school year.  I am still reading all of your posts, I just haven't had time to do my own or comment.  It's been great to see what everyone has been up to with the end of the school year coming and also to get some great ideas to keep the kiddos going all the way until the end.  I won't be back at school until the Fall, but rest assured, I will be going back and ready to share and communicate just as I did this year.  With it being June, I'm thrilled to be linking up with Farley for her monthly linky 'Currently!'  I love reading these to see what everyone is up to.  Be sure to stop by her page and check out what it's all about!

1- Listening:  I've had the TV on pretty much 24 hours a day for the last 6 weeks.  I'm not really watching something all of the time, but it's nice when I'm home to just have something on in the background.  It does get a little lonely being home with a newborn all day, so I've found some interesting things to pass the time.  I've recently found the DIY network.  I am in love! I'm listening to the Rehab Addict right now.  Have any of you ever seen that show????  If not, I recommend it!

2- Loving:  We have had some beautiful weather in Wisconsin the past couple of weeks.  Yes the humidity is in full force today, but I'm not complaining.  I'm loving that it feels warm... FINALLY!  This winter just was not going away, and I am happy to say that it is GONE!

3-Thinking:  My husband has one last week of school until he is home with Hudson and I!!! YAY! I'm so excited that he has summer off with me, and that we will have this time to bond with our son.  He's an amazing dad, but I know it's been hard on him to leave us each morning.  We are excited that soon he will be home with us. 

4-Wanting:  I love to do projects and crafts and it's been a really long time since I've started a project of some sorts for the house or for someone else. I'm really wanting to get something started.  Any ideas???

5-Needing: I know that I don't have to tell any of you parents out there that sleep with a baby is pretty inconsistent and sometimes non-existent. I'm longing for a full night of sleep........ Everyone keeps telling me "It will get better" or "This is only temporary..."  Honestly those are the last things I want to hear... I just want someone to say, "I totally know how you feel.... I've been there!" 

6-Summer Bucket List:
    A- Organize: I have a storage closet in the basement and my front hall closet that was on my list to organize when I went on maternity leave that never happened because Hudson came early.  I really want to get them organized and put back together before school starts again.
   B-Donate: I want to go through things in both closets from the above statement and get rid of the old... and donate whatever we aren't using. 
  C-Routine: I'm really anxious to start getting into a routine this summer with my husband and the baby so we know how life will somewhat be as we move forward.  I know it won't be perfectly set, but I'm really wanting to have some consistency in life as a new family of 3. 

I wish you all the very best as the school year ends.  I'll be back at it soon.... :)  Happy June!  


  1. I totally know how you feel about needing a full night of sleep! My son didn't start sleeping through the night until he was one! Luckily my daughter was a little nicer to us, and started sleeping through the night around 9 months!! Both kids take turns with who is going to get up in the middle of the night now (13 months, and almost 3!). They also like to take turns who is going to get up at 5:30!! You can do it mama!!

    1. Thanks so much for your comment! I tried to respond to you via email but was unable to. If you want me to help you become a no-reply blogger let me know!!! Wow, 3 years and 13 do you do it? I'm barely making it with one..... This week he has done a lot better and we've had some longer stretches of sleep, but it's just not the same. Thanks so much for the encouragement. !!! Yes, I can do it!! :)

  2. Routines fall in place but just remember that if you can't follow it 100% of the time, it'll still be okay! I've been there! But our girl Addy has grown into such a well adapted little lady because we went with the flow when we had to. Less stress on you and them. Beautiful baby!

    Head on over to my blog and check out my GIVEAWAY!

    If You Give a Teacher a Treat

    1. Thanks for the comment, Lindsay! I tried to email you back, did you know you are a no-reply blogger? If you need help fixing that, or want to allow people to respond via email let me know! If not that is fine too! :) I'm more ready for a routine with myself (shower, clean, grocery shop...hahah!) I do agree that having them be flexible is key. I only hope that we will have a little one like your Addy. We've been taking him all over the place and we're not scared to feed him out of the house and still do some things that we like to do. :) Thanks for the comment, and I love your blog!!!

  3. Your son is so precious! Hopefully your routine will get a little more regular, especially since your hubby will be home for the summer! Enjoy!!
