Currently

We did it, friends. We survived another week! I live for the weekends and am so happy to see Friday here. I am still busy getting things up and running around these parts of the WWW but we'll get there soon. Many of you know that I started blogging years ago and my goal is to share life updates with you but also I really enjoy writing light-hearted posts too. For now, here's a little bit of what I'm currently enjoying in my life.

Watching: NARCOS.
Ross has been trying to get me to watch Narcos for the longest time because he knows that it's totally up my alley. Well, I finally started. Apparently there are several different seasons, but I started on the newest one from 2018 involving Rafa, Kiki, etc and is based in Guadalajara. It is so good. Why did I take so long? Once I finish this season, I will plan on watching the other seasons.

Shopping: SEPHORA.
Okay so I am in need of your recs. I have a good chunk of money (Christmas gift cards) to spend at Sephora and I simply can't decide what I want. I am pretty sure of a new foundation that I want to try, but so far, that's all I've got in my cart. The problem is that I want one of everything but I'm trying to use my money wisely. Please share your favorite must-have items from Sephora!

Planning: THE TWINS.
I can't stop thinking about the two precious babies that are growing in my baby. I'm in a permanent state of nesting. All I want to do is get things ready for them. Ross and I are already brainstorming 2 boy and 2 girl names since we don't know the genders yet. With Bennett's pregnancy, we did not find out the gender and it was such a neat surprise at birth. We will likely find out the gender of these babies, but we aren't completely sure if we want to know or not. Kensington swears there is 1 boy and 1 girl, so we'll see. Other neat information about our babies: they are "Di Di" twins which means that they each have their own sacs & placentas. Thank you to each of you for being so supportive of us since 2014. It has been a journey to say the least. We're so grateful to have y'all pray and cheer us on.

Reading: THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW. 
Well, I haven't actually started reading it yet but I did check it out from our library today. I got myself a library card and basically the possibilities are endless. Also my bank account thanks me for not buying a plethora of books on Amazon that I will read once and then never touch again. It's amazing how many books I came across today just by browsing our local library. I snapped pictures of the books I want to read next. Anyways, I'm super excited to jump into this book asap. Leave your recommendations for favorite books of yours!

Excited: ORGANIZATION.
Organization has always been something that I've been a fan of. I love to keep order, write every little detail down in my planner about our schedule, lay things out nicely, make lists, etc. It's kinda my thing. Since becoming a mom, I've definitely sacrificed some of my preferences in order to keep a laid back atmosphere in the home. But lately, I've decided to make it more of a priority - in a healthy way of course. My mother-in-law gifted us a session with a professional organizer (fancy right?) and she is coming over next week. I am excited to brainstorm ways with her to make our house more presentable for my own sake. In the meantime, I took it upon myself to make our pantry more easy on the eyes. I am so happy with how it turned out!
