Working, A Dog Portrait, and Other Fun

It’s currently Saturday night as I start this post. We’re all cuddled up on the couch watching the children’s movie Luck. It caught our eye because it features a black cat! We’ve got blankets and popcorn, but don’t go thinking it’s all perfect over here. We just had to pause the movie so I could use a deep cleaning vacuum on one of our couches because… potty training 🥴

Potty training isn’t what I’m here to talk about today, though! I’m here to talk about random things like coffee at home, work, and gift giving. So, let’s talk!

Currently: May 2018

Current book I just finished studying Psalms and I’m almost done with My Life as An Amish Wife by Lena Yoder and it’s so cute. A great read on Amish life.

Current prayer For our anatomy scan to go well and find baby healthy and growing. The appointment is today and we are super excited!

Current beauty product Micellular water. I actually just ran out of it and you should see the makeup around my eyes right now. I ought to send Jimmy out to get a new bottle ASAP because I don’t think I should be seen in public with these raccoon eyes 😉

Current blessing My sister. She is one amazing girl. I feel incredibly blessed that we talk every day and are so close. I wish we lived closer. We totally have dreams of living on a joint farm one day, haha.

Current craving A date night with Jimmy!

Current song Fear Is a Liar by Zach Williams. Always nodding my head along when I hear this on the radio. Such a great reminder!

Current obsession Walking Lola and Mavis to a creek by our house. Jimmy came with us over the weekend and it was so fun! I’m thankful the weather seems to be staying warm here in the ‘Burgh!

Current confession I’m baking my father-in-law’s wedding cake this weekend and I’m very nervous! Like what if something goes wrong?! I’m sure it will be fine, but I’m feeling the (self-imposed) pressure as the day gets closer. I am excited for the actual wedding celebration, though 🙂

Current need Possibly a new washing machine. I think ours bit the dust, but Jimmy is looking at it as I type up this post, so maybe he can fix it?! He is so handy with cars, plumbing, DIY projects, repairs, etc. and I never ceased to be amazed with how he repairs things that I thought were done for!

Current food Orange chicken. I’ve been working on perfecting this recipe and I had my sister taste test it this weekend (so not just Jimmy and I approve of it haha) and she said it was great! I think it’s time to share here on the blog. What do you guys think?

Current goal Finishing writing my book. I’m a few chapters away from being done with the first draft!

Current procrastination Buying Mother’s Day gifts. I know what I want to get our moms, I just need to buy the gifts. That’s probably what I will be up to after I finish this post! What are you doing/gifting for Mother’s Day?

Current excitement Jimmy is almost finished making our bed!
