Currently: October 2018

We’re more than halfway through October. Crazy! Who loves October? I know I do. I totally embrace all things pumpkin and fall-ish. Here’s what’s been going on in my life this month!

Current book Midwife: A Calling by Peggy Vincent. This is probably my third time reading this book. I love that its filled with birth stories and the chapters are short and easy to get through in small chunks of time.

Current excitement Our friends from church are getting married next weekend!

Current goal Getting pictures printed and in frames around our house. I have taken about ten million pictures in the past month and I want to get some off of my phone and onto our walls!

Current food Trader Joe’s dark chocolate lover’s chocolate bar. My brother and sister-in-law picked this up for me recently as a little gift and I’ve been enjoying a few squares after lunch each day. Yum.

Current blessing Our church family. We went to church as a family of three for the first time this past Sunday and everyone was so excited to see us. It was really special to introduce Sadie to the people who have been praying for her and loving on Jimmy and I so well.

Current baked good Brownies! My mom made us some recently and they were so good. She used this recipe. Also loving cornbread, as always. Friends from our church made us meals after Sadie was born and word got around that I’m a cornbread lover, so we have been well stocked on one of my favorite foods lately. It’s the best!

Current confession I’m way too into testing out which diapers we like the most. We received Pampers, Huggies, Honest, and a few other brands as gifts at our baby shower. I’m amazed at how fast we went through them. We found that we liked Pampers the best (so far) and are now trying out Amazon’s brand. New parent life over here 😉

Current beauty product This mascara has been a favorite of mine lately.

Current project I’m testing out a product for a large food company and it’s so much fun to get creative in the kitchen with it!

Current drink Sugar cookie sleigh ride tea. Can’t get enough of this lately! Celestial Seasonings really knows how to make a good seasonal tea.

Current app The WordPress app since I’ve been blogging from my phone lately!

Current craving Having a fire in our fire pit. There’s just something so cozy about a fire in the fall.

Current fun Jimmy and I went on a date last weekend! My parents watched Sadie for us and we went to a fall festival, got coffee, walked around a mall, and went out to dinner. It was so, so nice to get out!

Current laugh I had my postpartum checkup yesterday with the midwife that delivered Sadie and she told Jimmy and I that she needed to dye her hair after our birth. Jimmy said he needed to as well, haha.

Current need Five extra hands and 10 more hours in the day!

Current obsession This little nugget. How is she already a month old next week?!

Tell me something current in your life!


  1. That last picture of Sadie is adorable! I’m so glad your PP checkup went well and that you and Jimmy had a date while the grandparents babysat. I have been buying the fancy chocolate bars lately but I like the milder dark chocolate. The endangered species ones are really good!

    1. Aww, thank you! It was so nice to get out and have a date night! Yay for fancy chocolate :). Endangered Species is great! I haven’t had it in a while and now I’m craving it!

  2. Must be a wonderful month for you this month, for sure! Probably also feels more like fall in Pittsburgh than it does here in Cali!

    1. It has been awesome! And it has gone by so fast! It definitely feels like fall here… it was 38 degrees when I walked Mavis this afternoon. Eek! How’s the weather in Cali?!

  3. She can’t be a month old already! How is that even possible?! 😭 Sweet sweet baby girl! I’m so glad you guys were able to go to church as a family of three! So special. And I love that you are being loved on so well by your church family. Cornbread for days!! 🙌 Also you know I’m ridiculously into testing all the baby things so I totally get it, haha! No shame, my friend.

    1. I don’t even know! The past month has just flown by! It’s crazy! It really was so special getting back to church and receiving so much love and cornbread haha!!

      I have loved going back and reading your must-have posts!

  4. It’s always a good time for brownies!! Also, I need to try that tea. I’m more of a coffee drinker, but that sugar cookie tea sounds so good!
    I love that you are having so much fun trying out which diapers you guys like the most. That sounds like such a new parent thing and probably something I’d do too hahaha. 🙂

    1. I could not agree more about brownies! They are just so, so good! I hope you get a chance to try the sugar cookie tea, it’s really good and just a fun way to celebrate the season with a drink. Trying out different types of diapers has totally been one of those goofy new parent things! It’s fun though!
