It’s November! I’m really looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving this month. The weather is becoming cooler here in Pittsburgh and the fall foliage is absolutely gorgeous!
Here’s what’s currently going on in my life 🙂
Current fun My parents, Jimmy, Sadie and I are taking a day trip to West Virginia!
Current project Redecorating our living room, and by redecorating I mean randomly moving objects, pictures, and decor to different spots. Trying to keep things fresh while using what we have!
Current prayer For everyone impacted by the shooting that recently happened at a synagogue here in Pittsburgh.
Current drink I’m on a smoothie kick lately. Nursing Sadie makes me crazy thirsty, so smoothies have been especially satisfying! Also, this tea from time to time.
Current blessing Smiles from Sadie! I cried the first time she smiled at me. It made every tough moment of her first few weeks so worth it.
Current excitement My sister and her husband are expecting! I’m so happy for them and can’t wait for Sadie to meet her cousin in a few months!
Current food Apple cider pork chops. I was feeling fall-ish and decided to marinate pork chops in apple cider vinegar, mustard, onion, and spices like sage and cinnamon. I then baked them on a bed of sliced apples. So good. Would anyone want the recipe?
Current obsession Bread! When I slept over my parents’ house, they had both rye and pumpernickel bread on hand and now I’m hooked. I took some pumpernickel home and have been enjoying it with runny eggs on top.
Current beauty product I need to pick up this curl cream because I’m all out!
Current laugh All the nicknames we have for Sadie. I started calling her Sader Tot before she was born, and now we’ve even shortened it to Tot. Among many others are Darth Sader and Hungry Chick.
Current confession Jimmy sent me to Walmart the other night because Sadie was having a fussy evening that resulted in both of us girls crying. What did I buy at Walmart? A shirt for Sadie.
Current goal Taking some time to watercolor. I miss it a whole bunch!
Current need A haircut. I haven’t had it cut since February. Postpartum hair loss is real! I’m tempted to do something drastic, but I don’t have the time or desire to keep up with styling a high maintenance cut, lol. Any ideas?!
