Currently | January 29th

I have been missing in action for awhile. I had a very bad anxiety attack. I've been fairly free of serious attacks/depression for the last six years. It wasn't fun, but I'm back now and I have the tools to get better. With that being said, here is my week currently!

Writing | I have been journaling again. I ordered some perfect bound notebooks from Plum Paper and as soon as they arrived, I started writing. I used to journal quite often, but for some reason I stopped last year. Maybe the year before... I definitely missed it more than I realized.

Quitting | Cokes. Sodas. Pop. Whatever you call it, I am addicted. I have managed to get myself limited to just one 12 oz. can a day. I'm trying to replace it with water. It's a struggle y'all.

Fixing | I fixed some slow cooker chicken breast with lemon and pesto this week that was so delicious! Minimal ingredients + slow cooker is my idea of a great meal! Recipe can be found here.

Celebrating | Tomorrow is the kids 100th day of school! I can see the Summer light at the end of the school tunnel! I wanted to order my 5 year old a cute shirt from Etsy, but I forgot and now the day is upon us. So this morning I made myself an iron-on transfer graphic and put it on a shirt. I'll be sharing that FREE download here on the blog tomorrow, but here's a little preview!

Updating | I've been working on updating our vacation plans. I spent way too much time yesterday working on it. The company where Chris, my husband, works shuts down production for the week of July 4th and the week of Christmas. I've always wanted to travel the country, but I feel a real connection to nature. If all goes as I hope, we will be visiting a few national parks and taking in a few sites along the way. After I got the first draft nearly planned out, he decided to start talking about buying a camper. And that's why I called it the first draft because I was initially planning to stay at hotels. Stay tuned...

Reading | Just finished HP and the Cursed Child. I miss the wizarding world.

Watching | I also just finished the series finale of Salem. This last season wasn't quite as good as the past ones, but I think it ended well. I'm still watching Taboo, but I'm also still confused. Mainly just watching because Tom Hardy. Duh.

Sunday Lately with Blogger Tribe


  1. Sorry to hear about the anxiety attack. Those are the worst. :( Traveling with a camper sounds cool! Another blogger I know does that and loves it.

  2. I hear you on the anxiety (and the not-writing-because-of-it thing). <3 Sending support and well wishes!

  3. I used to have a Red Bull habit, which I used Diet Coke to break. Then I quit Diet Coke. I took some Excedrin when I got withdrawal headaches, for the caffeine. You can do it!

    1. thanks! Those caffeine headaches are the worst too! I never would have thought it would be so hard to stop eating/drinking something.
