Current obsession Filming vlogs! It’s just so much fun to have video footage of special memories and daily life. I have another one up from yesterday. I visited the hospital and showed our garden.

Current book Women of the Bible by Ann Spangler and Jean E. Syswerda. I just finished up learning about Gomer, Hosea’s wife, and now I’m onto Elizabeth!

Current beauty product Coppertone SPF 50 Clearly Sheer Whipped Sunscreen. This stuff is amazing. I love the way it feels, and it goes on great. Sorry, I’m a tad bit obsessed with sunscreen. I used Sun Bum on our honeymoon, and was loving Supergoop last month. I think my favorite sunscreen is a tie between Sun Bum and Coppertone Whipped. Okay, I’ll stop going on. Maybe I’ll discuss sunscreen in depth in another post, if anyone is interested šŸ˜‰

Current craving Spending timeĀ with my friend, Kim. We are hanging out soon, and I’m so pumped!

Current drinkĀ CoffeeĀ from Cafe du Monde! My mother-in-law went to New Orleans and brought me back some since she knows NOLA is one of my dream travel destinations. I’m super tempted to buy beignet mix off of Amazon to have the complete Cafe du Monde experience.

Current indulgence Bringing Malcolm outside while Jimmy and I eat dinner on our back porch!

Current food Sushi! I had been craving it for a few weeks, but hadn’t had a chance to get some. I was at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh yesterday, and grabbed lunch in the cafe. I found some sushi and it hit. the. spot.

CurrentĀ needĀ A haircut. It has been a few months since I last had it trimmed, and my hair is starting to feel downright straggly. I’m hoping to have it trimmed before my sister’s wedding on the 10th. I better get on that, now that I think about it!

Current blessingĀ Memorial Day weekend. We had such a nice time celebrating Jimmy’s birthday, planting our garden, and spending time with family.

Current confession I fell asleep while working at my desk last week, and I slept so hard that my ear imprinted on my arm, LOL.

Current excitementĀ We planted our garden! More on this in another post.

Current procrastination Mopping our floors. I just don’t feel like doing it, but totally need to since we’ve been out in the garden and then track dirt, grass, and mud into the house!

Current mood Content. God is good šŸ™‚

Gladiators

Hannah, Kim, and I competed in Pittsburgh’s Gladiator Rock’n Run 5k on Saturday. We got so muddy and beat up! Here are some pictures…

Fire jumping at the finish!

My thoughts on the race:
-I thought I broke my elbow at one point. I’m not even exaggerating. We went down a huge slip ‘n slide, and I hit my elbow on a rock and was in tears. I have a huge bruise on the inside of my elbow and I’m still babying it.
-We had a lot of fun, and my cheeks hurt from laughing so much!
-Hannah and I keep finding bruises all over our legs and arms because the course was so rough!
-Just like MuckFest in May, I didn’t want to do this race, but I’m really glad I did.
