It's March. March! Which means, St. Patrick's Day and Easter are right around the corner, and then my birthday, and then it will be summer and then fall already, and just stop!, time, just stop!

But seriously, every time (am I the only one who thinks every time should be written as one word: everytime? I do it every single time I type the word and my computer makes it very obvious that I'm wrong on that one, and yet I still felt the need to google it to make sure my computer isn't smarter than me. Verdict: it is). Wait, where were we? Oh right....every TIME I sit down to write my Currently post, I feel like I've just done one, even though it's been exactly a month since the last one. And then I think everyone else is going to think they just read one, but who cares, they're one of my favourite posts to write (and read!, not mine - yours!), so let's get on with it, shall we?

Here's what I'm currently...

Thinking about: how hilarious and entertaining my two year old is. Like, some days I want to literally videotape every single thing he says and does so that I can show Jim and remember it forever. He's such a practical joker and his sense of humour is awesome. His vocabulary is expanding everyday (<---why is that one word but not "every time"?!), I'm just continually fascinated by how his little toddler mind works. Lately he's been going over to Jim's laptop, opening it up and saying "hi papa! hi nanny! Papa?? Nanny??" and then bangs on the keys (we Skype with Jim's parents quite frequently), so today I let him ring them up on Skype and he sat and talked and entertained them for a good 15 minutes! Isn't technology amazing? We only see Jim's parents twice a year, but Sully already knows who they are even though the last time we saw them in person was back in December.

Toddler Adventures

Reading: my current book club's pick...The Best Laid Plans by Terry Fallis, and I'm bored. I always have such high hopes for a Canadian author (and fun fact: I met Mr Fallis once back in my bookstore working days), but this one is falling flat for me. It's a political satire, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the target audience considering I'm not a big fan of politics, especially reading about it in a novel, but sometimes you can still enjoy a book even if it's not your go-to genre. Of course, I will still finish it (I'm no quitter!), because book club is no fun if you can't even talk about the book!

Needless to say, I'm anxious to finish it so I can move on to my next read, Glory Over Everything by Kathleen Grissom.

Listening to: you guys, this song makes me so happy! Sully and I have lots of dance parties (both in the car and at home) to it! And Jonathan Roy is pretty darn cute, so watch the video!

Watching: I honestly haven't been watching anything, I know, shocking! I did watch the first few episodes of Fuller House and it was everything that I hoped it would be and more. The first episode made me really emotional for some reason. Nostalgia? Or do I just cry at everything? I loved in the first episode, how they acknowledged and poked fun at all the little things that other shows would gloss over. Like when Danny says he'll let DJ stay in the house instead of selling it, and Uncle Jesse comments "don't you know how much this house is worth now?" Or when Danny says "Michelle sends her love, but she's busy in NY running her fashion empire", and then they all look at the camera and give "a look". So much awesome. And so much cheesiness, but I love it.

Eating: meal planning is back on track this week! I mentioned in Friday's post what our meals for the week were going to be, and so far everything I've made has been really delicious! I'll probably talk a bit more about the meals in tomorrow's post, but until then, you need to add this one to your rotation: Pan Fried Sesame Tofu with Broccoli. Even my husband was a fan, and he didn't once utter..."you know what would make this even better? Chicken!". Sully on the other hand...I give the kid props for trying several pieces of tofu, even if he did spit every piece out. Also, this meal is ridiculously cheap to make (like $6 for the whole thing, unless of course you don't have rice or soy sauce in your pantry/fridge).

Wearing: a lot of workout clothes. To actually work out in! And since I've amped up the frequency of my workouts and don't just workout at home anymore, I'm realizing I need to add some new pieces to my workout wardrobe. I'm good in the leggings/crops department, but I'm seriously lacking in the tank top area. The few older pieces I have are just too small, or too short because, hello big boobs. Time to go shopping! Except, I hate shopping. Also, holy laundry! Increased frequency of workouts equals an extra load of laundry every week.

Looking forward to: the weekend! I have big plans to finally clean and organize my pantry and fridge. Yes, when you're 32 years old, these are the things that get you excited. I would say it's sad, but it's not because having an organized pantry makes me happy, haha! We also have plans to get out of the city and go for a hike with some friends so I'm looking forward to that! I'm also dreaming of sneaking into the basement bedroom early Sunday morning to sleep-in...shhh! Don't tell Jim!

Tell me: 

Are you watching Fuller House? Love it or hate it? 

Favourite place to get decently priced workout tops?

Something you're looking forward to!
