Current book The Bible. I’ve been reading the beginning of Matthew and Luke to keep my mind on Christ’s birth.

Current food I’ve been loving graham crackers and dark chocolate chip cookies lately.

Current obsession Father-daughter dates. I just adore spending time with my dad.

We painted ceramics together! I blurred what my dad made because he's giving it as a Christmas gift to someone who reads my blog, haha.

Current craving A day with absolutely nothing on my agenda. A girl can dream, right? 😉

Current confession I pulled clean clothes out of the laundry basket all last week because I didn’t get a chance to fold and put away the laundry.

Current drink I just finished sipping a vanilla almond milk latte as I began this post. It was warm and toasty and the perfect pick me up.

Current mood Pretty relaxed. I got through the busiest day of the year at work. Whew!

I made a cheese wreath at work last week for the family's Christmas party.

Current beauty product Yes to Carrots Body Butter. My knuckles are incredibly dry and cracked to the point of being raw because I wash my hands so often at work. Every time I slather on the body butter it soothes my dry hands.

Current need I don’t actually need anything, but I wouldn’t mind getting another dog 😏. Maybe a cocker spaniel?


My parents’ dog, Brandy, as a puppy!

Current indulgence Sleeping in whenever I can. Jimmy and I slept until 8:00 am a few weekends ago.

Current procrastination Vacuuming. Does anyone else procrastinate on that? It doesn’t take me long to do it, but I always find ways to avoid it.

Current blessing The women at my church. I went to a cookie exchange on Saturday and the devotional, fellowship, and food were all amazing. Jimmy’s cousin, Katie, and I collaborated to make the favors. She made the most adorable baby Jesus ornaments and I contributed the angel cookies. It was such a lovely gathering.


Current excitement Jimmy and I are going to take a day off of work together soon and spend the day doing whatever. Cannot wait!

What’s your current obsession/craving/blessing/procrastination/excitement?



  1. Aw what a cute doggie! I just went to a cookie party too and it was such a blessing! Good friends, vegan cookies and some to take home because I don’t have an oven so I can’t make them myself =P
    My current procrastination would probably be Christmas shopping and figuring out what my next year of running looks like. I enjoy those things, but I just haven’t gotten around to them yet…

    1. She’s the cutest pup I know! Yay for good vegan cookies! I’m glad you had a nice time with friends :). I can’t wait to hear what your next year of running looks like! I have a feeling it will be amazing!

  2. How does the Yes to Carrots Body Butter do at soaking into your skin? I get really dry hands in the winter as well, but most of the lotions I’ve tried feel kind of greasy and then the next time I wash my hands I feel like I’m washing off all the lotion (even if I put the lotion on at night and wash my hands 8 hours later in the morning). So it’s like the lotion isn’t doing anything at all.

    Love your daddy daughter dates!! 🙂

  3. Another dog….lol such a cute idea…. I definitely have dog fever. You and your dad are so precious he must adore the fact that you actually like to hang out with him, most parents have to beg their kids to hang out with them!!

    xo, JJ

    1. YES! I feel like I could always use another dog in my life, haha!

      I love hanging out with my dad! He’s usually busy with work, so it’s always a treat when we get to hang out. I think I’m usually the one begging him to hang out with me, hahah!

  4. A day off to do whatever sounds SO amazing!! Since our baby is due in May, I definitely want to make that a priority once or twice before then. My mom already said she’d baby-sit Brady for us. 🙂
