A Few Favorites

Hello! Just popping in today to share some favorites as of late. It’s currently 5:52 am on Saturday as I type up this post and a certain little someone is keeping me company because she woke up way too early. Like 4:45 am early.

Alright, onto to the favorites!

1. Hummus. The lemon hummus is great and isn’t overly sweet. The buffalo style hummus is spicy and full of flavor! Do you like hummus? If so, do you have a favorite flavor? I’m a fan of roasted red pepper.Β 


2. Park days with Sadie. I know our beautiful weather days in Pittsburgh are likely limited for the rest of 2020, so any time the sun is shining and it’s warm you will probably find us outside.Β 

We went to the park this week and I was impressed with Sadie wanting to try new things like climbing different structures, going down slides, etc. as she’s a pretty cautious child. Go Sader Tot!

3. Studying contentment. I’m currently working through this study guide on cultivating contentment and it’s very inspiring and has me doing a lot of thinking and praying.

I was especially struck by the quote below. What a wonderful reminder that this broken world we live in isn’t all there is to life. With Jesus as our Savior, we can look forward to eternity in heaven each time we feel discontent in our life on earth.

4. Little moments. If it’s warm enough, Sadie and I eat lunch outside and sometimes we let Malcolm sneak out with us.

Other little moments: we had our monthly family night on Thursday and had Thanksgiving dinner. Sadie and I cooked the green bean casserole together and it was so sweet having her help me.Β

5. Decorating for Christmas. Yay! I’ll probably do a separate post on this, but we have our decorations up and it’s making me so happy! We filmed a vlog of the process and I have a feeling this will be fun to look back on πŸ˜‰

Tell me some of your favorite things lately!



  1. That pic of Sadie walking ahead of you is soooo precious!! Well- you know all pics of her are precious to me, but that one was so adorable- like she was on a mission to get somewhere.
    Some of my favorite things to do lately is reading my daily devotional books. They always seem to be speaking directly to me ❀️ I also love spending quality time with my grown children and my grandchildren. Every moment is a memory, and I’m constantly taking videos and pictures of our time together.

    1. Aww, thanks! I love that picture of her, too! She was definitely on a mission to get to the playground πŸ™‚

      I love when you send me pictures of your daily devotion books! ❀

  2. I like the roasted red 🌢 pepper! I have only had that and plain though. Sadie is so cute and iapplies

    LOVE πŸ’• YOU

  3. I’ve never thought about discontentment like that. What an interesting way to think about it!

    And YES! I am so pro decorating for Christmas early! πŸ™‚
