Hello 2023! It’s month numero uno and I am excited for it. I want to hear about what you’re up to this month, any big goals you have for the year, travel plans, etc. in the comments.
Here’s what’s current in my life this month.
Current book Risen Motherhood. I first heard about this when I completed the Risen Motherhood devotion in the Bible app. I really enjoyed it, so I purchased the book and am also enjoying it!
Current cuteness Mordecai wearing a suit. My mother-in-law gave him some dress clothes for Christmas and he looked like such a little man all dressed up.
Current drink Starbucks veranda blend k-cups. I love a good blonde roast!
Current goal Organizing Sadie’s bedroom. She was given some awesome doll toys and accessories for Christmas and I need to find a place for them!
Current joy Seeing my sisters son grow and thrive after going through intrauterine growth restriction. My sister sent the photos below and I was blown away at how much Titus has grown in four months!
Current beauty product Super glamorous, but I’m loving this deodorant. I want to try Olive and June nail polish. Has anyone used it? I feel like I keep hearing good things about it!
Current baked good I probably sound like a broken record lately, but I’m loving this lactation cookie mix.
Current preschool favorite Sadie has been really into this search and find game. I love that it’s reusable because it wipes clean!
Current excitement We’re starting our monthly family nights up again for 2023. We pick one night (or day!) a month to do a special activity as a family. I know we will draw a name out of a hat to shop for each family member for Valentine’s Day in February, but I’m not sure what we’ll do for January. If you have any ideas, send them my way!
Current blessing We’ve been having a warm spell to start out the year and I am loving it. High temperatures in the 60s? Count me in!
Current laugh Sadie got an American Girl Doll horse for Christmas and decided she and Mordecai needed to “ride” it together.
Current obsession Decorating for Valentine’s Day! It’s one of my favorite holidays, so I try to make our little home festive for the occasion. I’ll share some pictures in my next post 🙂
Current song Affirmation Song by Doggyland & Snoop Dogg. Totally random, right? Jimmy introduced Sadie to it and now we listen to it every day and I find myself saying the affirmations.
Current obsession Time with my family! Jimmy didn’t have work on Monday (January 2nd) so we went to Panera Bread for breakfast on a whim and did school with Sadie.
Current craving I really want to travel somewhere… preferably somewhere warm. I’m currently scouting out road races in the Outer Banks and trying to convince my parents and Jimmy that we need to go and run a race. Nevermind the fact that I haven’t run since before I was pregnant… so a year ago, LOL.
Current need A date night with Jimmy! We were given a couple of local restaurant gift cards for Christmas so I am hoping to plan a date night soon!
Current fun Seeing Sadie ride her new bike! She took right to it and it has been pure joy for us to see her learn a new skill.
