Current Celebration:  Oh – so much to celebrate this month!  We just finished hosting the Husband’s amazing grandparents (all the way from England).


And on Thursday, the Husband’s high school friends and their children are coming to play for the weekend.  Yay, visitors!


Current Confession:  My dogs are getting really chunky because they do so much “cleaning up” after Claire eats.  I may need to stop being lazy about it and pick up those banana pieces myself…


Current Product Find:  I haven’t tested this out yet, but I bought this totally awesome key organizer for my FIL for his birthday.  I saw a video of it on Facebook and was like – OMG HE NEEDS THAT (he has the biggest key ring I’ve ever seen).  Hope it’s as cool in real life.


Awesome, right?


Current Plan:  Tackle a huuuuuge part-time project for the next six weeks, do an Olympic triathlon in August, and enjoy as much summer sunshine as possible.


Current Book:  I’m reading Sisterland right now.  So far, I really like it.  It’s by the same author of American Wife, which I adored.


Current Purchase:  I checked my Amazon orders for this one… The last four fun things I bought on Prime were Henry’s birthday presents (a PlasmaCar and Magnatiles) and two books for myself (I Am Legend and A Walk Across the Sun).

Current Drink:  The La Croix sparkling water obsession continues!


Current Holy Moly:  After two years of crazy scribbles, up-and-down slashes, and no shapes except the odd half-completed swirly circle, Henry suddenly – without any sort of warning – busted out this drawing of a person.  I was totally floored and actually shed a tear.  It was incredible!

Current Show:  Season 3 just ended, but the Husband and I were totally into Silicon Valley on HBO.  It is truly one of the most hysterical shows on TV.  Watch it!


Current Want:  I love my kids, but I would really love to go on a beach vacation with just the Husband and myself.  Probably not going to happen for years and years… Par for the course, I suppose!


Current Obsession:   This totally awesome concealer from Urban Decay.  It’s lightweight and smooth and doesn’t sweat off easily.  And it blends in really nicely.  I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but this is becoming my go-to item when I do!


Thanks to Tina for this fun blog post idea!

What are your “currentlys”?

    Current plan: Meal plan & grocery shop tonight so I can get back on the healthy eating train this week!
    Currently celebrating: I had pain in my IT band last week totally out of the blue, but I worked out this morning and had NO pain 🙂

  • Jenn@Mark My Miles! June 22, 2015, 9:31 am

    I love the new blog design…so fresh and so clean! : )

  • Erin @ Her Heartland Soul June 22, 2015, 10:18 am

    Way to go Henry!! That is seriously so awesome! It sounds like you had a fun weekend!

  • Cassie June 22, 2015, 10:19 am

    Currently I am obsessed with home made bread. Happy Monday!

  • Kendall June 22, 2015, 10:42 am

    I loved American Wife!! I’m going to check out Sisterland. You could always do a long weekend to the bahamas with the husband!

  • Kaleigh June 22, 2015, 10:48 am

    I love the new look!! So clean and fresh!

  • Reenie June 22, 2015, 11:11 am

    ha!! That top pic of Henry cracks me up!! Adorable photo of the kiddos and their Great Grandparents. 🙂

  • Kaella (KaellaOnTheRun) June 22, 2015, 11:11 am

    The new blog design looks great!! I will probably cry too when my little draws something that I can recognize 😉

  • Janelle June 22, 2015, 11:24 am

    1) I LOVE the new blog look.
    2) The picture with the kiddos and their great grandparents is so, so sweet.
    3) That key organizer is genius. I am ordering that for my husband right NOW! Thanks for sharing that idea.

  • Amanda June 22, 2015, 11:31 am

    Ok ok… finally going to try La Croix, you’ve convinced me 😀

  • Stacy E June 22, 2015, 11:32 am

    I bet the grandparents would be happy to juggle kids for a few days while you and the husband went to the beach…there are even close by beaches!

  • SK June 22, 2015, 1:00 pm

    Just wanted to send you a book a week recommendation. I am about 60% through a book called The Passage – this is SO up your alley. Post apocalyptic, vampire-virus awesomeness. A bit of The Road, a bit of World War Z and a bit of the Walking Dead. I cannot put it down!

    • Caitlin June 22, 2015, 1:51 pm

      Adding to list:)

  • Tiffany June 22, 2015, 1:11 pm

    I am also obsessed with La Croix! I literally loaded up my shopping cart at the store this morning before work. The checkout woman was like, “I didn’t know they made coconut.” I was like, “yes, it’s amazing and I’m obsessed….oh, I guess you already know that!” Hahaha.

  • Jasmine June 22, 2015, 1:18 pm

    I listened to “I am Legend” (non-movie version) on audio TWICE. I looooooooved it.

    I’m considering trying to get these 10 books read by the end of the year:

    I’m currently reading “California,” an apocalyptic book, which… I’m over. I’ve been reading that genre forever now. Time to move on!

    Ryan and I just finished OITNB’s new season last night. I’m rarely into shows, but that one is AMAZING.

    That was a comment full of RANDOM, but there ya go! lol.

  • Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine June 22, 2015, 1:45 pm

    Love the new look! And…totally frame that picture! ADORABLE!

  • Olivia June 22, 2015, 1:49 pm

    Aww! I love Henry’s person! My son is two months older and he recently drew his first recognizable drawing too. It was on his chalkboard easel and so clear that I didn’t believe he’d drawn it — we’d had contractors in the house and I thought they were messing with me! I was finally convinced when he told me it was a monster with, “two arms, one eye, and ten legs with stripes on his belly!” … which it most certainly was. Right down to all 10 legs! I was really bummed it was in chalk though — you can cherish yours forever!

    • Caitlin June 22, 2015, 1:50 pm

      I love this!

  • Claire June 22, 2015, 1:51 pm

    I feel like this is such a Not Another Teen Movie Reference but Henry’s drawing is a spitting image of himself! Haha seriously!

  • Laura @ June 22, 2015, 2:15 pm

    Unrelated, but I finished “House in the Sky” based on one of your book-a-week reviews. Oh my gosh… it was so good! At one point I got so sucked in I just had to “binge read” the rest of the book and stayed up way past my bedtime. Thanks for the awesome recommendation!

    (Also, the top photo of Henry jumping is so cute!)

  • Katie sB June 22, 2015, 3:13 pm

    Henry’s drawing is so cute. 🙂

    I couldn’t get into Silicon Valley, maybe beside I live in the actual Silicon Valley and my husband works for a major tech company. I just thought it was silly. My husband watches it though!

    My current want is for time to stop crawling by so I can meet my baby boy in October. I’m having a hard time being pregnant and it seems like its going soooo slowly.

  • Kelsey June 22, 2015, 3:14 pm

    LOVE the simplified look – it is so fresh! My current want is the same – a vacation with my love! We both took separate ones this year – Florida for me in February, and Vegas for him last week. I told him this weekend we need to take a vacation TOGETHER next year.
    Current plan – to get back on track with blogging this week, and be happy!

  • Maya June 22, 2015, 4:16 pm

    What flavors of La Croix do you recommend? My obsession is nascent but I’m struggling with which flavor to try next! Love lime & pomegranate flavor, on the fence on coconut… send help! 🙂

    • Caitlin June 22, 2015, 7:12 pm

      Have you tried Cherry Lime? OMG. Also – Lemon is > Lime.

  • Elizabeth H. June 23, 2015, 2:25 pm

    I love Curtis Sittenfeld–she’s one of my favorite authors. Prep is my favorite of her books, and I’d definitely recommend it if you haven’t read it yet!

  • alicia June 24, 2015, 7:36 am

    Since you’re doing the book a week thing, I thought I’d recommend a book I read recently that was amazing. It’s called “The Pearl That Broke Its Shell” and was written by Nadia Hashimi (she has a new book coming out July 21st that I’m dying to read). I couldn’t put it down. Rather than give a synopsis, just check Amazon. I don’t think I could do it justice.
