So there it is.

At this very moment I am...

listening to the Boyce Avenue pandora station. which reminds me that I actually don't like this current song. Don't you hate when you've been listening to an entire song than all of a sudden you realize what you're listening to and you're pissed you wasted 2 minutes of your life? I do. 

eating tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich that is a little burnt and that is just the way I like them. Secretly, I wanted to say I was only eating tomato soup because that sounds healthier, but then I would be lying.

drinking milk. does a body good. plus I'm kind of drinking the tomato soup because there's not really anything in there to eat. ever thought of that? now you did.

wearing a Victoria's Secret Pink shirt and my old soccer sweats. classy lady.

feeling a little lonely because Clint is selling out of town this week. but excited for a girls night tonight with some of the other wives. We are watching Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants tonight because we thought it was fitting seeing as we self proclaimed ourselves as The Sisterhood of the Traveling Vivint Wives. and naturally a slumber party isn't complete without junk food and magazines. 

wanting some new clothes, to go to NY, Clint to come home, my family to come visit, to meet Selena Gomez (ya, I did just admit that), to find a new craft to do, and to not have to blow dry my hair. which I probably won't. 

needing to start looking for scholarships. So instead I blog creep. You do it too, so it's ok. 

thinking that the combination of not working out today and eating junk food is not the best idea I've had all day. 

enjoying living on the East Coast, my bike, helping my cousin and best friend plan their weddings, being an aunt to the sweetest little girl ever, procrastinating, and my new shoes- which deserve a post of their own.

I hope you are having a great day :) 

And also I should really get these, because they are seriously the only four things I ever need band aids for. furr real.

It's not what you look at that matters, 
it's what you see.

some day...

I want to be the mom who...

is in the swimming pool with her kids, rather than on the lawn chairs laying out.

dresses her kids like they just walked (or crawled) out of a babyGap ad. (Don't tell me you can resist a baby that is dressed to a tee.)

bikes, hikes, runs, dances and skips with her kids.

has handmade a majority of the pillows, artwork, and other decorations in her kids room. Ok maybe no the majority, but at least some. and you better believe I'm going all out on their rooms. You have no idea how excited I am.

teaches her kids to serve others.

definitely does not drive a mini van.

helps her kids to make sure their school project is the most bomb in the whole dang school. :) I don't know, maybe I'm competitive.

has the kids that are always saying "please" and "thank you."

makes our home a place of love that is centered around Christ.

has the birthday parties for her kids where people are thinking "whoa calm down sister. 150 guests are not necessary at a 2 year olds birthday party." ok, exaggeration definitely. But you better believe their parties will be awesome. and you, my friend, will most definitely be invited.

takes pictures everywhere we go. meh. already do that.

dresses her family in coordinating (not matching, just coordinating) outfits on Easter. Seriously, I dream of this day.

builds forts in the living room where we have family slumber parties. Clint will be stoked, he already does this and we don't even have kids. haha gotta love him.

doesn't gossip about others.

reads to her kids often.

teaches her kids that the best friendships they'll ever have, are those with their siblings.
[isn't this pic the cutest? you have to go see this guys photography blog. the pictures he takes of his daughters are adorable.]

dances with her littles to the latest disney channel songs. Shouldn't be hard. I'll probably love disney channel more than they will.

Scrapbooks her kids pictures. (I remember loving the scrapbook my mom did of each of us. We would look at them all the time.]

stays fit. even if it means working out at 6 am before the little monsters wake up ;)

puts cute notes in the lunches they take to school.

teaches her kids to find beauty in everything.

has regular prayer and scriptures in our home.

lets her kids have the sweetest slumber parties ever with their friends. and encourages pillow fights and eating candy before bed at these slumber parties.

has lots of lemonade stands, movie nights, picnics, tea parties and whatever else their little hearts desire.

I really don't know when we'll be ready to have kids. Some days it seems super far off, but others- not so much. But until I finally am a mom, I love preparing myself so that I can be the best mom I can be. 

isn't this picture precious?

and ps...all of these pics are from you guessed it, pinterest. :) you guys seriously need to join. There's a link on the side of my page. 

have a wonderful weekend future mamas.
