The Mommy Monday Blog Hop {258} #MMBH

Welcome to The Mommy Monday Blog Hop, always #MMBH on social media!

I’m so happy you’re joining us for the Mommy Monday Blog Hop! 🙂 I hope the weekend treated you well. My weekend was good, but I’m still living that hotel life. Hopefully, we can find a place real soon, because this tiny living isn’t for me. Perhaps, I would be more accepting of tiny living if I had my own kitchen and my own things. I’m just ready to have my own place again. Anyway, enough about me!

We want to see what you’re sharing this week!

Let’s get this Mommy Monday Party Started!!

Watch This! I'm sharing some big news and we're celebrating with JORD Watch Giveaway!!
Chicagoland, Getting to know Me, Giveaway, Mr.AOK

Watch This! Big News + JORD Watch Giveaway

Watch This! Big News +JORD Watch Giveaway

*I received a free wooden watch from JORD in exchange for writing this post on my blog.

When my husband was in the Army one of his mentors told him he should buy a watch when he was promoted or received a new job. So, when my husband finished PLDC (Primary Leadership Development Course (That’s when he became a sergeant in the ARMY)) he got a new watch. When he secured his job as a civilian, he was given a new watch. There have been watches for different promotions over the years, as well as our ten year anniversary.
If you’ve been a friend to this blog for a while you know my husband’s job has taken us on a few journeys. When I started this blog we lived in Illinois, we moved to South Carolina, and currently we reside in Washington State.

I love when weekends are all about new adventures. How was your weekend? XOXO💕

A post shared by Dean 👌🏽👩🏻‍💻👩🏻‍🎨 (@mrs_aok) on

I’m delighted to tell you my husband received the must stunning JORD watch to celebrate his new job!
Wooden watches by JORD GIVEAWAY!!
My husband actually was hired for two separate jobs within a week of each other. One of the jobs he was offered was here in Washington and the other in Chicago. Let’s just say we celebrated his new job with Chicago dogs while listening to Kanye’s Homecoming. 🙂 We’re going back to Chicagoland, friends!!! And I cannot tell you how ecstatic I am about that.

I’m coming home again 🎶

 
We are already beginning to pack and make sure we do all the Pacific Northwest things, like soak up the…. gray? Well, we’re enjoying our last few weeks here, which included skipping rocks on the beach, treasure hunting and watch-admiring. I mean c’mon have you ever seen such a beautiful watch before? My husband is totally in love with his JORD Dover Koa and Black wooden watch!!
(I think this is a good place to insert a HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to the best PAPA in the whole wide world. Thank you for going half on this journey with me, babe. I love you!!)

Wooden Watches by JORD

To be honest, I’m kind of jealous of my husband. I adore how unique JORD’s men’s and women’s watches are, I want one for myself. I also, think my husband’s new watch pairs nicely with the bracelet my daughter made for him. Don’t you?
Look at the spectacular packaging! I appreciate how JORD gives a little extra. I’m glad my husband has a safe place to store his new watch. Along with being excited about going back to Illinois, I’m also thrilled to announce that JORD is offering one lucky reader a $100 gift code for their very own JORD wooden watch!!! Also, my friends at JORD are generously giving everyone who enters the giveaway $25 towards the purchase of their watch!!! I CANNOT thank JORD enough for their generosity and their enthusiasm for my husband’s new job. 🙂

A Short Bucket List of the things we want to do before we move back

  • Visit the new Jimi Hendrix Park
  • Visit The UP House with balloons of course 🙂
  • One last picture in front of the gum wall
  • We HAVE to get another hike in
  • A bonfire at the beach
  • Carve our family name into the birch at the beach

 Is there anything we missed on the list? What else should we do? And how gorgeous is my husband’s new watch?

Don’t Miss Your Chance to WIN your very own JORD wooden watch!!

Click HERE or the image below for your chance to win a gift code for one of these stunning wooden watches. Don’t forget EVERYONE receives $25 gift code for entering. 🙂

Enter to win $100 gift code from JORD. Unique wooden watches for Men and Women. Everyone who enters receives a $25 gift code. :) GIVEAWAY / Wood Watches / Men's Watches / Women's Watches

Currently {May 2017}

Currently….

If I’m being honest, currently, I’m still sickened and outraged over the senseless act of violence that happened this week. My heart breaks every time I hear news of Manchester. It doesn’t make sense. At all. Those who were targeted were babies. Babies! It makes me sick to my stomach. I start to ache when I put myself in the parents’ and the children’s shoes. Empathy is wonderful, but boy is it hard sometimes. I’m able to wear the emotions of others so well sometimes, and it hurts. (I have an 8 yo son, 11 yo daughter, and a 15 yo daughter, it’s been VERY easy for me to put myself in that place.)

Currently I feel selfish, because I’m trying to avoid some of the news. It’s just too much, because again, I have the ability to really put myself in the situation. I feel selfish for feeling this way because obviously those who are dealing with this head on in Manchester can’t hide from it.

Currently….too many

There’s been too many times since I started blogging that there’s been some awful tragedy. I always question: 1) should I write the post 2) is this too light and insensitive. Sometimes I’ll take a day, sometimes I will write right away, and as always I tell myself you must go on. You’re lucky and FEAR is not allowed here. So, EFF OFF YOU TERRORIST SCUM! Nobody thinks you’re badass coming after babies with bombs.

I’m sure you’re thinking: WOW, DEAN! And currently I’m thinking: WHOA, I guess I had to get that off my chest. Perhaps I’ve been holding in all my emotions lately. I’m in a place of calm and balance but when you miss a morning of meditation this happens… I guess.

Currently {May 2017}

I didn’t want this month’s Currently post to go this way. Here’s how it would have originally went….

Wondering

How can I boost my blog stats?!?! My blog stats have taken a dive this year. I can admit that I haven’t been the best blogger this year. Posting here hasn’t been nearly as much as I use to, and perhaps this is a direct reflection of that. I really don’t know what to do. Help?

via GIPHY

 

Wanting

Currently wanting more of this AMAZING Fresh Nature jalapeno hummus!!  I’m considering breaking up with guacamole for this stuff. May I add that this is in NO way sponsored. I just figured I wouldn’t be a good friend if I didn’t tell you about this glorious new find. I’m on my second tub… eeek!! To be fair we made sandwiches using the hummus in place of guac. We’re a family of five. 🙂 Also, I cannot wait to make some falafels.

And since I’m on the subject of food… I’ve been wanting more of these brown butter blondies!! My youngest daughter made them for me for Mother’s Day and they were phenomenal! I couldn’t stay out of that dish. 😀 I totally carb-loaded on Mother’s Day.

I never showed up my Mother’s Day arm candy! The kids made me bracelets, my husband purchased his for me.

Wishing

That you will head on over to check out these posts if you missed them. 🙂

I’m also wishing for more days like this.

My husband and I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things for dinner. (It was beautiful day, we wanted to BBQ.) When we came home all three of… excuse me, I mean all four of our babies were outside- there was some intense reading going on. We followed it up with an intense couple rounds of Spades and good food. 🙂

Working on

Keeping centered! I’ve been working so hard to keep internal balance.

via GIPHY

 

ART! This is my last month of being an art docent. May was also our art show. 🙂 I had my last class with my third class this week. We worked on cubism. Next week I say goodbye to my 5th graders.

I made the kids stickers and I put cute tags on pencils for the kiddos. 🙂

What are you up to currently?
