Reading // “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doeer. I’m only a few chapters in so far and things are moving a little slow, but after reading reviews I’m looking forward to seeing how it develops.

Watching // Kyle and I just started watching the new season of Alone. If you haven’t watched it, we highly recommend it! It’s a way more intense version of Survivor and it definitely gets some bonus points for being filmed on Vancouver Island.

Listening to // Throwback-style stuff on Spotify! Random songs from my high school years have been popping up in my head, so I’ve be reliving that ridiculous portion of my past thanks to Spotify, lol. Nothing like a little Limp Bizkit, DMX and Kid Rock to start my day!

Loving // That school is almost done for the summer! Only two (half) days left for Isla then she can tackle summer to her heart’s content.

Thinking // How I’m going to put together my office downstairs. I’m heading back to school in the fall (via distant learning) and I’m going to need a space where I can do my work without any interruptions from time to time.

Needing // A massage. I think it may be time for me to cash in my birthday/Mother’s Day present ;)

Anticipating // Norah and Isla’s birthdays. It’s going to be a busy weekend with Norah’s birthday on Friday and Isla’s party on Saturday. Please send me alllllll the liquor come Saturday evening ;)

Looking forward to // Summer vacation! I really hope to make the most of this summer before Isla heads off to kindergarten in the fall.


Reading // Nothing. I’ve been busy baking, wrapping presents, and running around like a crazy woman, I haven’t had time to sit down and read at all! Shame on me :(

Watching // A lot of mid-season finales! This is Us is probably my new favourite show. (Sorry, Grey’s, but you’re getting a little repetitive…) And of course, I watched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and have so many mixed feelings about it!

Listening to // A little Christmas music here and there! I’m loving Pentatonix’s Christmas album, and of course, Michael Buble is always on my playlist!

Loving // My lovely Canadian Blogger Christmas Swap package that I received from Jenny! I’m looking forward to hanging the reindeer and tree ornaments on our tree once we get it this weekend, and the chocolate is SO good and most definitely needed ;) I’ll probably devour it while putting the face mask to use this weekend. Thanks, Jenny!!!


Thinking // About some new dinner ideas. I feel like we’re on repeat in the kitchen and it’s hard to find new recipes that meets everyone’s dietary needs and desires.

Needing // Warmth! We’re going to a cold snap right now and it’s ridiculous! As I write this post it’s -14°C/7°F plus a wind chill and it’s no fun. Yuck.

Anticipating // My tattoo appointment on Saturday! Time to get something to honour Norah ;)

Looking forward to // Christmas tree hunting, birthday parties, and family time for the holidays!

What’s one of your family’s favourite meals? Help a mom out! ;)


Reading // Nothing at the moment, but I did download a couple of books onto my Kobo and am just waiting for time to start reading one of them. I got the new Liane Moriarty book (Truly, Madly, Guilty) and The Girl on the Train and I don’t know which to start first! Input is appreciated!

Watching // Masterchef, So You Think You Can Dance, Better Late Than Never, and a few other random summer TV programs. I can’t wait for Fall programming!

Listening to // Nothing really spectacular, just a lot of satellite radio and Spotify.

Loving // The cooler weather, because that means SOUPS! I could do without all the rain though. Blech.

Thinking // About what on earth I’m going to do with my time while Isla is at school and dance during the week! She’ll be at school for 2.5 hours two days a week starting next week, as well as dance for an hour once a week, and I’m at a loss! Norah and I will get some solid bonding time, if anything :)

Needing // Some mealtime inspiration. I feel like I’m on repeat for a lot of things but it’s hard to find new recipes that work with our households dietary restrictions (little to no corn starch or cheese).

Anticipating // Isla heading off to preschool next week, obviously! I’m more anxious about it than I thought I would be, and I hope I keep my shit together when I drop her off and don’t cry in the car. ;)

Looking forward to // Having my basement being finished and back to normal! Now I need to think about how I’m going to arrange the space.

What are you currently up to??
