Friday.  Friday. FRIDAY!!!

Even though I don’t hold your typical 8-5, M-F job, I still get excited as the weekend approaches.  The weekend means more hands are available for help should I need them and usually marks the close to a solid week of homeschooling (sometimes we do school on the weekend if we’ve had a rough week and need to catch up).

Today I thought I’d copy my good friend (and Blend co-partner), Lauren!  I always love reading her “Currently” posts – easy reads that are perfect for the Friday mind.  Enjoy!

Currently: January

Current books:

The Bible!


Today marks Day 5 of reading on the “Bible In 90” plan and I’m loving it.  This is my 4th year reading through and it’s always surprising to see all the NEW that God pulls out.  Same words, read many times, but I’ll still find something I didn’t see before.  I love that!

Current music:

This cd!

Current guilty pleasure:

Hmm…I gotta think on this one.

Drawing a blank – I don’t really feel guilt about much of anything these days.  Whoa…is that called “growing up”??

Current nail color:



I’m bare!  <-typical.

Current drink:

Water.  I’m always SO thirsty!!  (which will be nothing compared to when I’m nursing this little guy)

Current food:



Here’s the thing:  I know how to make maybe 4 dishes.  That’s it.  Quiche is one of them and I’m getting better and better each time.  It’s just TOO easy to make and they’re nutritious!  My latest quiche had GOAT CHEESE, ham and mushroom!  I made two so that we’d have plenty of leftovers.

Current favorite show:

I have a couple.  Downton Abbey (we watch online the day after it airs – no cable) and Breaking Bad (don’t tell me how it ends!)

Current wish list:

I NEED some new maternity workout clothes!  I’m currently rotating between three tanks and two capri pant options.  The people at the gym must be so tired of seeing me.  Any recommendations?

Current needs:

See above.  Plus add:  I need for someone to throw me a baby shower.  <-pains me to say that outloud.  I have all the big stuff, but my boy clothes are off by two seasons so Porter doesn’t have much.  Which brings up the question:  What are the RULES (current) for throwing someone a THIRD baby shower?  Is it tacky?

Current triumphs:

Securing more and more sponsors for BLEND!!  Our latest sign on – Oiselle for Bootcamp!


You have to check out their clothes!!

Current bane of my existence:

Pregnancy nausea.  FIVE months – grrrr.

Current celebrity crush:

I don’t follow celebrities.  Like at. all.

I’m ok with that.

Current indulgence:

Dark chocolate-covered cashews!!  Yes, please.


Current blessing:

I have so many, but probably the best, most recent one is a successful business meeting concerning the future.  That’s all I can share right now. Smile

Current slang:


Current excitement:

Renewing my NASM personal training certification!!!


All those CEUs were a doozy, but I’m good for another two years!

Current mood:

Happy.  Hopeful.  Tired (but that’s not really a mood, is it?)

Current link:

Go encourage this girl.  A great friend and I just love her heart.


QUESTION:  Now YOU tell ME something current!

  1. Hey congrats on the recert. I need to get mine done. Please share the classes you took and your thoughts on them.

    1. Hey Stacey! I took a Pre/Postnatal Training certification through DSW Fitness. I also got my NCCPT through Smart Fitness (another personal training certification). Those two things, along with my CPR/AED, were 2.1 CEUs (you need 2.0). Hope that helps!

  2. I hardly ever do my nails b/c they chip So quickly then it just looks terrible and I never get around to taking the polish off. Whoops.

    Around here, we do a diaper and wipes shower for second baby and I don’t think I have ever seen anything for the third, but maybe that’s just a southern thing?

  3. The big thing around Chattanooga these days are “sprinkles” for the 2nd+ children. It’s where people drop by wherever your “sprinkle” is and bring diapers, wipes, and gift cards…you know, things you would run out of from the last baby. I’m a pastor’s wife, so we usually have them in the nice banquet room at church on Sunday afternoons :).

  4. My current aka (since New Year’s Eve) is what I’m NOT doing… Running or much working out at all (basically the opposite of the rest of the world). But the good news I go in Monday for an MRI of my hips

  5. That quiche looks so good! If you’re looking for something slightly different, tortilla de patatas is a big winner in our house…adding in some tuna or salmon makes it even better! (smitten kitchen has a great recipe!)

    Also, thank you for doing the Bible in 90 reading! I struggle with carving out the time in my day to read and study and the last couple of months I’ve been making a conscious effort to make reading more of a daily habit–this is really giving me the kick in the pants I need. I haven’t ever read the Book in its entirety so I am so excited to discover everything it holds… and I’ve already gotten so much out of it just the first week in! So again, thank you.

  6. As far as baby clothes I would say hit up consignment shops. Does your area have any baby clothes only second hand stores? Or garage sales too! I’m not sure how I feel about a third baby shower… Maybe you could have like a clothes only type shower??

  7. Mmmm, quiche. So simple and quick to make, yet so satisfying! I’m not sure about the whole baby shower etiquette. My sister in law had one for her girl, then one for the boy. I won’t be throwing her a third, because frankly she has a ton of stuff ( and loves to let you know it too). Why not throw a baby brunch yourself? Invite all your friends letting them know they can bring a gift if they would like. You supply fruit, quiche, and some cupcakes and beverages. Ether way you get to have a blast with friends, eat, laugh, and maybe get a few extra baby items. :)

  8. Quiche….soooooo good. I gotta do one with goat cheese. YOu just made me really hungry. And I love that I’m not the only one rocking the bare fingernails. It seems like bloggers always have beautifully manicured nails in pics where you see their hands. Never mine. I don’t have the time (or money) to care about manicures. haha!

  9. I don’t think it really matters which # baby it is, but if you’re up to it…here’s an idea that would be relatively easier for you since you may have at least a few things to get you started with clothes and stuff. Anywho…we didn’t find out what Wyatt was going to be. I did have one small baby shower with my girls at work and got a some random things like diapers and baby care items that we all know we need. But I waited until after Wyatt was born to have our main shower so people could meet him. Kind of a “meet and greet” type thing. Since it wasn’t a cold/flu type time of year plus people really didn’t mess with him too much. All the family that didn’t/wouldn’t show up to the hospital got to meet him. Anywho. Definitely ok to have sweet Porter a shower!! As for current….I’m pretty much never current on anything lol but I can for sure say one of many current blessings is how wonderful my great and supportive friends are!! Happy Friday!
