currently: daydreaming 
Loving: that I finally went to the dentist yesterday! You guys, I haven't been to the dentist since just before Eric and I got married. That equals almost *gasp* 6 years! I know, pretty freakin' disgusting. And to be honest? I told my hygienist (who I know personally and is really good friends with my mom, so I'm sure the truth will come out to her eventually) that I hadn't been since I got pregnant, ha ha. I was just too embarrassed to tell the truth! Anyway... this girl has no cavities (I've never had one)! AND she was praising how good my teeth were for not going in for a couple years (little did she know that it's actually been 6. Oh the horror!) so I'm a happy, relieved girl :) And now you know why going to the dentist every 6 months is on my resolution list, ha!

Reading: The Book of Mormon. Eric and I have made a goal to read the scriptures each day together in 2014 and so far, so good! I'm loving this account on Instagram to help keep us on track for reading.

Trying to: gear up for a week of babysitting 5 boys! That's right my friends, I will be a single mom to 6 children! Eric will be there to help for the weekend and that's it! This will be my fifth year watching these boys and they are great! But obviously this is my first year having my own child in the mix. I have no doubt that Mia will be in heaven and follow them around like a puppy dog! Hopefully they don't get sick of her :)

Wishing: that winter was almost over. We have been having beautiful weather with lots of sunshine and temperatures close to 50 which is just crazy talk for where I live at this time of the year! It's going to be pretty miserable when the freezing temps and snow come back in full force!

Excited for: the trips we are planning. We have some big dreams as far as our traveling wish list goes this year.... hopefully we can make them all come true! First up? A spontaneous early birthday weekend getaway (since I'll be baby sitting on my birthday) thanks to that husband who loves to make my dreams come true :)

P!nky said...

Kristin said...

I dont even want to do the math on how long it's been since I've gone to the dentist...yikes! Excited to hear about the trips you are planning!

Dawn said...

I was the same way about the dentist until I had kids and made sure that they went every 6 months...then, I was like...better make sure I set a good example and go, too! haha

That tropical paradise in the first pic looks AMAZING...especially on this blustery Minnesota morning.

Ok first of all you are CRAZY for not having any cavities after waiting that long! I didn't go for like 2 years & I had 2 boooo! It doesn't help that my teeth are super tight together. Also, I could NEVER babysit 5 boys & take care of my own child omg...Also, what a great goal to read the BOM! Tony & I are reading it together. We have a BOM class each week so we usually procrastinate & read everything from that week right before, but at least it's keeping us on track with where we should be!
Go enter to win Freshly Picked Moccs on my blog-Mia would look adorable in them!!!

I need to go to the dentist. It's been 2 years!

You are crazy watching 5 other kids.

Cece said...

You must have really good enamel! Lucky you. Glad you got a clean bill of dental health. I love to travel!! I think it's an essential part of life.

Kym said...

I'm the same way! It's been over 2 years since I went to the dentist. And yes, winter can end any day now :)

Whitney @ EHFAR said...

I haven't been to the dentist in an embarrassingly long time. Seriously. My biggest fear is when I eventually (haha) go that I will have 10 cavities. I think I would cry.

I love to travel too!

Pamela said...

When I first saw that picture I was like 'whaaaat!' I thought you were there, ha! I haven't been to the dentist in years either...longer than you :/ ha Oh gosh, GOOD LUCK with babysitting! Shew.

Courtney Sweet said...

5 boys and a Mia - you are crazy! But, it sounds crazy fun too =) Good luck!

Katie said...

I am crazy about going to the dentist. I go every 6 months and actually just set my next appointment for a month after I deliver. I have a strong feeling I will be rescheduling that and that kind of drives me nuts already. haha

Ohhh a spontaneous early birthday weekend getaway sounds fun!!!

Emily said...

i think i have you beat... i haven't been to the dentist in EIGHT years!!! i've promised myself i'll get there this year... i'm a little worried as to what the dentist is going to find ;)

Julie said...

I haven't gone since 2010 when I got my wisdom teeth out...I don't have dental insurance so until I do have it, I'm not going to pay the ridiculous amount. They don't hurt, I take care of them, I'm good for now ;)

Oh my gosh!! I'm so with you on the dentist!! Only I wait a go every few....okay 4-5 years and have like 5-6 cavities. Yeah...that's embarrassing! Augh. So impressed you didn't have any! (And jealous!)

Tammy Jo said...

Um I HATE going to the dentist!!!

Jennifer Martinez said...

Kirsty and Seth said...

Wow, that's a lot of boys to be looking after all at once, you're a braver woman than me!
