Current need An alarm clock. I never set an alarm, and usually wake up sometime between 5:00-6:30 am. I had to meet a new pet sitting client yesterday at 8:00 am and accidentally slept in until 7:30.
Current blessing Our church just wrapped up its annual vacation Bible school and it was great!

Current beauty product Supergoop Sun-Defying SPF 50 Sunscreen Oil. My mom subscribes to Birchbox and got this product in a recent box and gave it to me. I’m loving it! It goes on well and isn’t greasy.

Current book Dog Crazy by Meg Donohue. It’s a cute, lighthearted read so far! Hopefully no dogs die in this book or else I will totally cry.

Current food Chocolate chip zucchini cookies. Can’t wait to grow zucchini in our garden soon!

Current craving Getting back into a gymnastics gym. I’ve been practicing my press handstand at home and I’m just dying to get back on the bars, beam, vault, and floor!

Current drink Eight O’Clock Coffee.

Current indulgence Reading through my old journals. I found this–I used to write in Russian all the time! I don’t know why I stopped?

Current confession Jimmy and I have no control over Malcolm. He sits in the middle of our kitchen table while we eat dinner and rests his paw on Jimmy’s plate or tries to eat off mine. When I push him off, he growls at me.

Current need Could I ask you to pray for a young boy at Niños de Mexico? His name is Aldo. He had to have a tracheostomy to remove tumors from his palette, mouth, tongue, and throat. He recently began chemotherapy to shrink the tumors. Please pray that this sweet boy could experience full healing.

Current obsession Taking Lola to the pet store and wandering around! I bought her this food, which is a super cool concept. She loved it. I never leave the pet store without buying Malcolm something, too! I usually buy him Fancy Feast Broths with the little anchovies in it and he chows down.

Current mood Happy!

Current excitement Jimmy’s birthday is at the end of May, Hannah and Josh are getting married in early June, and Jimmy and I celebrate three years of marriage in mid-June!

Current procrastination Folding Jimmy’s work clothes. They’re sitting five feet away from me, but I just don’t feel like folding them.

Current blessing Church family. I love the people in our church so much!
