Happy March! I’ve been waiting to say this for a few months: spring officially begins this month! I’ve started to see the stems of daffodils peeking out of our neighbor’s grass and have been hearing birds chirping in the morning. Love it.

Here’s what’s currently going on in my life this month. Also, this post has a few affiliate links!

Current book The book of Job, Brain on Fire, and this isn’t quite a book, but I bought a guided prayer journal and really find it beneficial in organizing my thoughts and prayer life.

Current excitement I’m going to start some seeds for our garden this month! We usually buy seedlings in May and transplant them straight into our garden, but there’s a few less common vegetables that I want to plant this year that we don’t usually see seedlings for in May.

Current food Cinnamon rolls made from pancake mix. Working on perfecting the recipe, though Jimmy will tell you they’re perfect as-is, haha. I just want them to look prettier 🙂

Current prayer For everyone impacted by the tornado in Nashville, TN.

Currently looking forward to Sadie feeling better! She has a double ear infection that didn’t respond at all to 10 days of antibiotics, so we’re on another 10 days of stronger antibiotics. If those don’t work, we have to move on to a series of shots. I just feel so helpless seeing her cry and pull on her ears. She’s so off balance and keeps falling, which makes her cry more. Poor baby girl.

Current project I spruced up Sadie’s changing area with her own little garden 🙂

Succulent nursery

Current beauty product I’m at it again with considering dental products as beauty products, but I am loving AP 24 Whitening Toothpaste. I actually used this growing up (my parents have been Nuskin consultants for probably 20+ years!) and was surprised to randomly hear it has a cult-like following in the beauty world lately, so I ordered a tube and was instantly brought back to my childhood, haha.

Current fun Family coffee dates and silly pictures!

Family in Starbucks with baby

Current drink Pretty much any coffee from Starbucks, but especially the Veranda blend.

Current baked good Mini cherry pies. Jimmy had a craving for cherry pie, but our pie pan was being occupied by the above cinnamon rolls, so I improvised and made individual little pies.

Current blessing the Bible study I’ve been doing with a few other women at my church on Wednesday nights. My sister has been leading it has been very enriching.

Current cuteness Sadie has been drawing little scribbles on paper, so I hung her first piece of art on our fridge 🙂

Currently: February 2020

February. It’s here! Is anyone doing anything fun for Valentine’s Day this year? I’m not sure what we’ll be up to, but I’m excited to scheme up something fun 🙂

Daddy is my Valentine shirt on baby

Current book(s) Just finished studying the book of Esther and also finished Listening With My Heart by Heather Whitestone. Now I’m onto this memoir by Marlee Matlin and up next will be this one. Memoir city over here! (<— affiliate links!)

Currently looking forward to A trip with Sadie and Jimmy! We’re going to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter in Kentucky and we’re pumped! We’ve been wanting to go since it opened a few years back.

Current cuteness Sadie and Mavis waiting for Jimmy to come home from work.

Current beauty product You know how I mentioned I was using Burt’s Bees coconut foot cream for my dry heels? I’ve moved onto bigger and better things: HeelTastic! I know, it sounds like it’s from an infomercial (who knows, it probably is!), but it’s  roll-on foot balm and it has been working super well and I love that I don’t have to get cream on my hands!

Current project Continuing to learn sign language. I worked another Walmart demo recently and was able to speak sign language to three different customers! It made my whole day to be able to sign and connect with people in that way.

Current fun Our monthly family night! We had a gift card to Cracker Barrel, so we had dinner (it was our first time taking Sadie out to eat with just us three!), went to the play area at a nearby mall, and stopped in a photo booth to cap off the night. It was so special ❤

Current food Ritz Crackers. They’ve been hitting the spot lately.

Current drink Starbucks coffee. I had the Sumatra blend this morning and it was fabolous 🙂

Current joy Getting together with family. My family + our spouses and babies spent an evening together eating dinner and watching “the girls” play at my parents’ house. It’s such a blessing to be able to see Remi, Caroline, and Sadie grow up together!

Current excitement I’m attending a new Bible study at our church that my sister and her husband are leading!

Current blessing I’m slowly beginning to feel better! I got hit with an awful virus (Jimmy thinks it was the flu but I never got tested) that left me feeling so achy, run down, and feverish. It also came with all the symptoms of a head cold like a runny nose, sore throat, headache, etc. but the weirdest thing was that the glands in my neck hurt so badly.

It was crazy. I’m so, so thankful to be on the mend!
