Currently, Vol. 5

Man, I am finally starting to feel human again. It has been a week and a day since I came down with this cold, managed to get conjunctivitis for the first time in my 34 years on Earth, and now I just have an awful cough and a runny nose. So, I am finally making my way back to the blogging world!

I thought I would start with the Currently series that Becky at Choose Happy hosts to catch you all up on what I have been up to!

Loving.... all the sun we have been has been beautiful the last few was just what I needed to get me through the rest of the winter blahs that are headed our way!

Thanking... my husband for being amazing to me on Valentine's Day. We normally don't do a lot, but I was sick this year so he bought me a dozen very colorful, very happy roses and wore our cheesy couples pacman shirts I made us without complaint ;)

Counting the trips we have far Brussels  with friends next week during Early Spring Break, and Berlin coming up at the end of April! I am so excited we are blessed to be able to do all the traveling while living over here.

Organizing...itineraries and closets! Weeding through clothes we need/don't need or things we need to replace and trying to figure out a dry cleaning schedule for all of our jackets. We all only have one winter jacket and they need a good cleaning so not sure how we will swing that!

Watching....lots of things! haha I just caught up on Mad Men, I caught up on Downton Abbey, and now I have started on House of Cards on is fantastic. Really enjoying it, hubby will be happy when I am caught up so we can watch season three when it comes out.

Celebrating....finding this gem at the drug store. It isn't easy to find but I finally asked someone at the store. She didn't 100% understand what I was looking for at first but eventually we figured it out hehehe She told me to take some of this...cough syrup, it does have codeine in it but she said they didn't have anything else milder that would help me sleep at night so I will take it. I am pretty sure I am one solid night's sleep away from being better so I am hopeful this is the answer to that! haha

Eating...cereal for dinner tonight lol but this is what I am planning on cooking from next week

I was so excited to find this because in the US they are having a hard time keeping them in stock, but I was wandering through Waterstones, our local American Bookstore that has the best selection and found it. I was so totally stoked and snatched it right up! Can't wait until I feel better and want to cook out of it!

So, what are you up to currently?


  1. How sweet of your husband! I am sorry you were sick, I just got over a bad stomach flu so I feel your pain.. i was out of commission for a few days, so I can imagine how stir crazy you were for a week!

    1. Ugh, stomach flue is the worst! Glad you are feeling better. We've thankfully had some sun and that has helped to perk me up and motivated me to get out of the house. :)

  2. Sorry you are sick. Right there with you this week as my head is so congested it might explode at any moment! I think I need some of that medicine with codeine, can you ship that to Chicago? : ) Your Pac-man shirts are too cute. Wishing I had time to catch up on Netflix shows. I hear that House of Cards is amazing, I just don't know when I would ever find the time! Feel better!

    1. Oh man, you poor thing, I hope you feel better soon!!! Thanks, I am going to do a write up about them soon, I found them on another adorable blog hehe

      For those shows I only found the time because my kiddo is 15 and was the sweetest totally pampering me while I was sick and letting me rest ;)

  3. Here's hoping you feel better and managed that one good night's sleep by now. I am loving that cookbook. I may have to knock some people over to find one for my Mister here in America. He would love it! Take care. I look forward to pic from the Thug Kitchen cooking!

    1. I did manage that good night's sleep, it was glorious!!!! I woke up dreading to check the time and lo and behold it was 6 am! :D I am in much better spirits.

      I am sure the thugs behind the book would approve of you knocking some mo' fo's over to get it ;) haha I do hope they get it in stock soon over there, they said at my bookstore they haven't had trouble keeping it in stock but I am guessing that is because it is a small market & they are ordering smaller quantities they want to keep it full maybe?

  4. Those roses are GORGEOUS! And the two of you wearing your matching shirts is just plain adorable! Hope you feel better soon- can't wait to read about your travels!

  5. Gorgeous lake photo!!
    Your roses are INCREDIBLE! Huge and beautiful, WOW!!!
    Ohhh...that recipe book looks awesome!

    Thank you so much for joining me this week in my Currently series, I hope you have a great weekend!!

  6. I'm currently getting over an illness too! It is hitting us hard here in Phoenix. Everyone is coming down with high fevers. Other than that, I am looking forward to this weekend. My in laws are taking both kids so I get a full night of sleep!!
