Doing Car Things on My Own, Brownies, and Life Lately

Our car has needed oil for about a week and we kept meaning to take care of it. I finally asked Jimmy what type of oil we needed, how much, and then brought Sadie to the car parts store with me to get it!

Royal Purple Motor Oil

The workers at O’Reilys Auto Parts were probably so confused at this almost 40 week pregnant lady walking into the store with a four year old while on a mission for motor oil ­čśé (more…)


Hey there

Hello! How is everyone doing? Is it cold in your neck of the woods? Pittsburgh is pretty chilly right now..IMG_4867Brrr. I took that screen shot this morning and I was thinking about how cold my truck is going to be when I leave campus at 6 p.m. tonight… I’m going to bring gloves!

I don’t have many life updates because my life is pretty chill right now (in terms of exciting things..). I’m just chugging along through school work, and trying to enjoy what free time I do have. I managed to walk Lola at a local park the last two weekends.┬álolaShe loves the car. Sometimes Jimmy and I will go to the McDonalds drive-thru before we walk her, and she will try to “say hi” and sniff through the window to the people who give us our food and drinks LOL.

I have been making an effort to not wear hoodies and sweats every day this winter. So far, so good.┬áIMG_4856I feel smart when I wear argyle sweaters ­čśë

IMG_4866Don’t worry, I wore the skirt when the high for the day was 40*, not 8*!!

skyThe sunrises and sunsets have been gorgeous lately. God is so good.

That’s pretty much all I have to say today. . .

Tomorrow I have to go to the dentist because I have a cracked metal filling.

The dentist is going to take it out and replace it with a new, white filling. Pray for me. I hate going to the dentist. I work myself up so much before I go that I’m almost in tears. I just try to remember that it’s only a short procedure. And I also send up a prayer of thanksgiving for the invention of novocaine!

How do you get through dental procedures?!
