It’s April. What a lovely month! Here’s what’s currently going on in my life this month.

Current book Just finished up reading about all things baby-led weaning, which was interesting. Still reading this devotional book for the mom’s group I’m co-leading, and just started re-reading this book that I enjoyed a lot last year.

Current joy Birds! We have a bird feeder just outside our kitchen window and I finally bought some seed to fill it with. I’m enjoying seeing birds at the feeder each day. Cardinals are my favorite. We also have a hummingbird feeder that I need to fill with nectar, too.

Current app Peanut. The best way I can describe it is that it’s like Tinder for meeting moms. I got “matched” with a mom that lives in my neighborhood and we’re hoping to meet up with our babies soon!

Current tv show Deliver Me. I have no idea how I got into a random birth-related show that was filmed in 2008-2011, but I’m diggin’ it.

Current obsession Dark chocolate.

Current goal I want to vacuum and wash our car on a monthly basis. We’ll see how I do on this one 😉

Current craving I’d love to visit the Pittsburgh Zoo soon. I think Sadie would enjoy it as well!

Current food Pancakes. I was told Kodiak Cakes are delicious, so I picked up a box of the oat and honey mix and they did not disappoint! And yes, I ate them while standing at the counter 🙂

Current blessing The joy of spring and all the exciting things coming up. My sister and sister-in-law are expecting their daughters next month, we’re beginning to plan our garden, and just enjoying more daylight and warmer weather!

Current excitement We’re traveling this month! This will be Sadie’s first big trip and I’m equal parts excited and nervous. Fellow parents, any tips on long road trips with babies?!

Current cuteness Sadie in a Carhartt shirt! Jimmy wears a lot of Carhartt gear at work, so we thought it would be cute to get her a tool belt t-shirt so she can dress like her dad.

Current beauty product I’ve been using Sun Bum shampoo and conditioner lately and it smells just like their sunblock. Strange? Maybe, but I really like the smell of sunblock.

Current drink I’ve been having a glass of apple juice almost every day lately. Random, but delicious.

Current fun Family nights at home. It’s so nice to have a few nights each week where we have nothing on the agenda and can just relax as a family.

Currently: March 2019

We’re somehow about halfway through March right now. I feel like we were just ringing in the new year! Here’s what’s currently going on in my life this month.

Current books I’ve started reading this book as I prepare to co-lead a mom’s group at our church. Sadie has been enjoying this book about Genesis as well as learning sign language from this book, and she adores pulling down the felt flaps in this farm-themed book!

Current excitement My sister’s baby shower is on Saturday! She’s due in two months and I cannot wait to meet baby Caroline 🙂

Current joy Sadie. She’s sweet as can be and becoming more and more interactive each day.

Current beauty product Does a towel count as a beauty product?! This reusable makeup remover towel is so neat–it removes makeup with just water!

Current food Edamame spaghetti. I found it at Aldi for a good price, so I figured we’d give it a whirl. Random, but delicious.

Current laugh I recently hung out with my mom and drove her truck. I parked and grabbed my water bottle (still loving the water bottle from this post, FYI!), only to discover that I took her cup holder along with me. The best part was that I didn’t realize I had the cup holder until I was about 50 feet away from the truck, lol.

Current baked good Graham cracker chocolate chip cookies.

Current indulgence Blogging when I should be doing household chores 😉

Current drink Jimmy and I recently tried the new Cloud Macchiato from Starbucks and it was excellent! Also loving Newman’s Own k-cups and coffee in general, as always!

Current goal To organize and sort through all of Sadie’s clothes.

Current craving Spring weather and a date night with Jimmy!

Current cuteness Mavis and Sadie. They’re best buds ❤

Current blessing Daylight savings time. I am so enjoying the extra daylight hours!

Current obsession Researching chicken keeping. I really don’t need any more living things to take care of but I’ve always wanted to have chickens. I keep telling myself “Don’t do it, Allie” and yet I find myself looking up more and more info…

Current fun Pittsburgh experienced some semi-warm weather over the weekend, so Jimmy and I took Mavis and Sadie for a walk on a local trail. We also went to the Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show, which was a blast!
