My friend, Holly, blogged everything she was "currently -ing" at the moment.  I thought it was SO fun!!  I gave it a shot myself!  Here we go...

Making:  I'm making crazy eyes at two teenage boys who just drove by and craned their necks to stare into my car.  I wanted to scream, "Seriously!!!  I have THREE car seats in here!".  Hahahaha!  But I didn't.  I just gave them crazy eyes!
Cooking:  My plan is to cook absolutely NOTHING this week, but enjoy the fruits of others' labor!  hahaha!  I'm in Missouri visiting my family.  Don't get me wrong.  I'll be happy to help, but straight up cook...hope it doesn't happen.  :)
Drinking:  Water....super boring.
Eating:'s 8:20 p.m.
Reading:  (Not right this second) I'm reading Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner.  Love a good chick flick book!  I'm also reading Don't Make Me Come Up Kristen Welch.  It's a devotional.  LOVING that too!
Wanting:  My parent's internet to start working, so I don't have to come to McDonald's in the nearest town to use their wi-fi!!!  This is my current location...
No lie!!!  I'm sitting in the McDonald's parking lot getting my blog on.  And teenage boys are wondering who the lady is with TX plates!  hahaha!
Looking:  Seriously...looking at the people in the booth in front of me.  They're enjoying those french fries!
Playing:  With my kiddos ALL week long!!  We've already enjoyed the pool and we have many more pool dates planned this week!
Wasting:  Gas!!  It's WAY too hot to be doing this without the air conditioner on!  haha!
Sewing:  I am sewing NOTHING!  You should have been my outfit in home economics in high school.  NOT GOOD!  But...I didn't bring a shirt I'm hoping my mom can fix!
Wishing:  My parent's internet would miraculously start working.  :)
Listening:  To "Enter Sandman" by guys!  I told you that I have a major problem setting up playlists on my phone!!  Thank you to Tab for putting that song on my phone!  hahaha! I'm typing this a ten-year-old girl BANGED her door into the side of my car.  I'm listening to that now too!  Thank you ten-year-old girl!
Waiting: To finish this post and head back to my parent's house.
Liking:  Being in the super peaceful country!  I forget how fast-paced our life nice to have a slow and relaxing week!
Wondering:  Again, I'm wondering if the internet will be up soon OR if I'll be at McDonald's every night.  hahaha!  I might develop a late night french fry addiction!
Loving:  All the family time!  I miss seeing my family during the year and it's a blast getting to hang out!!
Hoping:  Sorry, guys!!  I'm going with...HOPING the internet is working ASAP!
Marvelling:  At how quickly things change!  I lived here for 18 years and some areas look SO different!  Especially the trees...they are HUGE here!!  It's beautiful!

Needing:  The internet to be back up and running ASAP!  (I know!  I sound like a broken record!)
Smelling:  French fries :)
Wearing:  My road trippin' clothes....V-Neck tee, tank, and comfy shorts
Praying:  For Ebby Lee's kindergarten year AND the internet (keepin' it real!)
Noticing:  That lots of people eat a full McDonald's meal LATE!  It's after 8:30 people!
Giggling:  That it's after 8:30 p.m. and I'm in the McDonald's parking lot blogging in my car!!
Feeling:  TIRED!!  I got up at 4:30 for this road trippin' adventure!
Remembering:  The entire way Bowen was on repeat, "Get Awt, Mama".  He said it approximately 3, 739 times!!

Whew!!!  There you go, Ladies!!  Hope you are CURRENTLY having a great day!!

Sharon Simmers said...

Love the -ING idea! Must file for future reference! Ha! Do you ever think I am totally "copying" you? Just so you know, I'm not far from that McDonalds, my internet is working (most of the time, slow, but working) AND as long as you don't blog about my unclean house, you are more than welcome to come here! I will have no tempting French fries, car door banging 10 year olds, or teenage boys who think you are one HOT momma, but I do have an annoying puppy! Ha! Love ya kiddo!!!

I seriously think this is the cutest blog post! You are adorable...and hey...if you are listening to Metallica and looking all cute no wonder those teenagers are checking you out! :)

V @ X-tremely V said...

Seriously laughing out loud right now :) Enjoy your week in Missouri!

Fun post!

Shelby said...

This was SO fun!! I loved it!! I hope you're having a great week in Missouri!!

Madison Berry said...

Erica....this might sound a little crazy, but I believe I either saw you or your twin today at a water park in Cape Girardeau, Mo!! I was getting ready to leave, and was like "I feel like I know that girl!" I could've kicked myself for not going up to that person, or you (if it was you). It might've been a little weird to have a blogger fan come up to you so far from TX!! :)

Cathy and Marshall said...

You are a dedicated blogger to come to the Mickey D's parking lot!! Your Metallica reference made me think about how my husband's playlist has now taught my kids their favorite song: ACDC's Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap...which they love to sing at the top of their lungs in public places, much to my shame!! hahaha

Narci said...

Such a cute post!! I loved reading all of your ING answers! Come home soon!!

Tab & Erika said...

Madison!!! hahaha!!! Yes, we were in Cape at the water park yesterday (on Wednesday afternoon)?? Is that when you were there?? I wish you would have come over! My kiddos had a BLAST!!

Jenny said...

Love this! Hope the internet is up and running soon. :)

Madison Berry said...

Yes we were there on Wednesday afternoon too! Such a small, small world. I would've come over but my busy 15 month old was running from me lol. I read your blog everyday girl! Have a good time back here in the Midwest :)
