Whatcha doin'?

I love reading the Currently's that Farley hosts because I am nosy by nature and I love to know what everyone else is thinking and doing!  So, I'm linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade to let you know what I'm Currently thinking about.

I'm working in my office and listening to one of my favorite bands (I have so many faves though!)
Big Daddy Weave is definitely in the top...right up there with Bon Jovi..two different genres of music but love them both!
This is the song that is playing as I type.

I'm LOVING Kid Writing!  Ha!  My three sweet grandbabies were here for the long weekend and we cut a Uhaul wardrobe box to make them a little Toy Shop/Cafe and they played in that thing for hours.
This is MacKenzie (5) working the counter.  :)

and here's the menu which brings me to Kid Writing.  Let me help you out.
Would you like a kidsmells?  (kids meal)
How about a Ummm....that's supposed to spell coke.  :)  Your other choices are Sprite, Sunny D. or sweet and unsweet tea.  I asked how they did such a great job on the spelling and MacKenzie said,  "DEEDEE (with emphasis) we looked in the refrigedador (her pronounciation) HELLO!!! (where does she get her sassy pants from?).

Its hard to see in this pic but you can also buy a puzzle.
It's a 24 pc. puzzle and they said it was $1. for each piece.  These girls know how to make some money.

I'm thinking about our house addition.  I'm wanting it to be finished.
I'm needing it to be finished.  Messes drive me slap crazy and this is one hot mess!!!

What are we adding on you ask?
We are adding a guest house for my daughter, Taylor and her husband Nick.
They work for Disney and Taylor is also in school to be a teacher.
So while I disguise it as,
"I don't want y'all to move out and struggle."  
The truth is...I don't want my children to leave home. Like.ever. 

Trips!  I'm planning a trip to Texas sometime this month because my Nanny who is my only living grandparent isn't doing so well and I need to get on a plane and go see her... and while I'm there I'm going to eat at my favorite place of ALL TIME!  Taco Villa!
I took this picture last time I was there and sent it to my daughter, Britni to torture her.  Yes. It is that GOOD!  It ranks right up there with Whataburger! another one of my Texas faves. Any Texas folks reading? Can I get an Amen?

I would also love to go to Hawaii.  I have never been and I really want to go!

I'd also love to go on a Disney cruise again.  We took these sweeties two years ago and it was such an amazing trip.

even the big kids love it!

Have a GREAT week, y'all!!!


  1. Oh my goodness, I love the toy shop!!! Your granddaughter is ADORABLE!! So is that menu! :)

    I hope your addition is finished soon!!!

  2. Gotta say. I'm intimidated. You're the link after me and Geeeez! You're my GURU! Ok. A meaningful comment! I started my tiny little blog and my brand new TpT because of you!
    OK. Meaningful about the Currently... I love the kid writing (and can't believe you're a grandma). I get so excited by my student's work and my husband has glazed eyes after the 20th paper I show - but I just love it!
    I commend your ability to keep those kiddos close! My daughter moved to NorCal from SoCal and it just about tore my mommy heart in half so good going, you!
    Gushing over!

    1. Oh, my goodness! I am as intimidating as a fly. If you met me in your life you'd be like....PSSSH! But thanks for being so sweet. I hope that you have tons of success on TPT! Your blog is adorable!

  3. They work at Disney?? Super jealous - how fun is that??
    The menu is precious. I always giggle when I see coke spelled like that. hehe.

    1. Yes! They love all things Disney. :) and the coke spelling ;) Yes! too funny!

  4. You have a beautiful family!!! I feel your pain on the house addition... I am not adding anything, but I am currently house hunting which is equally as painful! Have a great week :)

    1. Thank you so much, Holly! Good luck finding the perfect house! :)

  5. Amen on the Texas food!! If you are going to be in the DFW area, check out Twisted Root for the best cheeseburger EVER!!! So yummy!

    Have a great week!

    1. Hi Liz, I will definitely have to try that out. I'd move back to Texas in a heartbeat if I had my way!

  6. I hope your addition will be finished soon! I know it's hard to be patient when you're so excited for it to be done!! My parents are so happy I live so close to them, so I know you must be very happy too!!

    Have a wonderful week!

  7. thanks so much for linking up... it means a whole bunch to have you join my linky party!!! I am way jealous your daughter works for Disney... I worked for Disney all through college and even a little after college... I worked at their outlet stores... it was a blast!!!

  8. The only time I've had Taco Villa was in Lubbock. We don't have them here in Houston, but we do have Whataburger and all kinds of yummy tacos! My family is from West Texas, so I do get up there occasionally.

  9. I totally understand about not wanting your babies to leave home. I can't imagine what I'll do if my kids leave town to go to University.


  10. One dollar for every puzzle piece! Love that! You know.. we teachers are always losing just a few pieces to each puzzle- so your girls may be on to something! I l love that you take pictures with food to make others jealous because I do the same thing, but not with Taco Villa... I have never heard of it, but will have to try it if I am in Texas!

  11. We are building an addition as well and "hot mess" is the best way to describe the process! Best of luck for a quick finish -- we are nearing the end of ours and it's pretty amazing to see the end in sight and the addition is so contemporary and new!
