Currently in December

It’s the last “Currently” link up for 2015 already! How has the year flown by so fast? It’s one of the busiest months of the year!  Here is a look at what is Currently happening in my world!

~Currently I am~

Wishing – It’s so cheesy, but I seriously have everything I could wish for. I am simply wishing that all of my friends and loved ones have a fantastic holiday season and a great year to come with health and happiness.

Remembering – Being that it’s my baby boy’s birthday tomorrow I’ve been remembering and reminiscing about his birth, it was such a special experience and Nate and I talk about it quite a bit even two years later. I’ll have a special post up tomorrow celebrating his second birthday, so be sure to come back for that!

Wrapping – Right now just birthday presents for my little guy! I’m terrible about wrapping Christmas presents, it’s my least favorite part of the holiday season, so I usually save it for the very last minute!

Baking – My mom and I are starting our list of cookies to bake. We’re going to make some of our traditional favorites including spritz cookies, Chocolate Chip Teacakes and Thumbprint cookies (chocolate cookie rolled in pecans, yum) but we are always looking for a fun new recipe to try, maybe caramel cookie cups, maybe truffles this year, who knows! I’ll also bake up a batch of gingersnaps soon too; they’re one of Nate’s favorites. I just love making cookies at Christmastime!

Decorating – We got all of our holiday decorating done over Thanksgiving weekend, we picked out a real tree this year and got fun new lights for it. We also put some lights up on the outside of our house for the first time since the year we got married. Our halls are decked out to the nines this year and I couldn’t love it more!

  1. The tree looks great! And I bet it just feels like time is flying with Ollie. Good thing he got being sick out of the way last week, huh? 🙂 So, let’s have a wrapping party! I have no presents to wrap but I like wrapping. 😀

  2. I love your tree! I bet Ollie is loving the lights on the house! I can’t believe that your baby boy is going to be 2 tomorrow!! Love you all so much!

  3. Happy Birthday Ollie! I’ve been reading your blog for almost a year and I can’t believe he’s already gonna be two! They grow up so fast! I feel you on the presents thing. I am the worst. My family can always tell when I wrap a present because it’s absolutely terrible. One I just can’t no matter how many lessons I am shown. Two I just don’t care. People are gonna rip it off anyways?

  4. This was such a sweet post, I love what you said for “wishing” 🙂 I’m jealous that you’re already all decorated (even with lights on your house, yay!)– I keep telling myself to just take an evening and do it, but still haven’t. This weekend, I swear 🙂 And all those cookies sound wonderful!

  5. Thanks for linking up, Beth!!
    Another blogger mentioned spritz cookies as well, and now I’m so curious about them! I’ll have to look them up. I never met a cookie I didn’t like, though. 🙂

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
