Starbucks coffee

Currently

I haven’t done a “currently” post since January. I love looking back on these posts. So, here’s what’s currently going on in my life!

Current books The book of Romans and The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo (Much to Jimmy’s dismay, haha). I have donated so many things I don’t use or wear and it’s literally so hard not to dig into Jimmy’s belongings. Yikes.

Current music Trust in You by Lauren Daigle.

Current guilty pleasure Painting. Canvas, walls, anything! I just tried my hand at watercolor on Tuesday. I became interested in it when my sister and I watercolored a Bible story with preschoolers at our church.

Watercolor

Current nail color Nothing right now, but I just removed very chipped teal the other day.

Current drink Starbucks Ethopia blend. It’s so smooth! Still going strong on my birthday and anniversary coffee.

Coffee Mug

Current food I’m loving eggs on top of potatoes. It’s weird, but surprisingly tasty. I guess I get pretty creative when I need to go to the store.

Current television show Anything that has to do with the Olympics.

Current wish list More time with my sweet husband. He’s super into the new Pokemon Go app, so he’s been taking walks with me and Lola so he can catch Pokemon. I’ll take whatever husband time I can get 😉

Walks with Jimmy

Current needs Nada!

Current indulgence Taking time to decorate our house. I received gift cards for TJ Maxx and Kirkland’s for my birthday, so I’ve been able to buy a few vases and art pieces.

Current blessing I’m feeling super blessed by God to have such a loving and supportive church family and immediate family. My mom and dad treated me to lunch on Tuesday because they were both on “my side” of Pittsburgh. It was lovely.

Family

Current excitement Helping plan Hannah’s birthday and graduation party in August. I’m so excited to celebrate my sister! I haven’t mentioned it yet, but she’s leaning towards studying nursing at Penn State. I think she will make an amazing nurse because she’s so caring and hard working.

What’s your current blessing, book, and indulgence?

Life Lately

I know I say this every time I post about my life… but life lately has been busy! It’s the good kind of busy, which includes time with friends and family, house renovations, lots of coffee, and laughter.

VBS Cake

This week was Vacation Bible School week at our church! I mentioned a few years ago that I was being trained to lead the kitchen during VBS by some of the older women in my church and this year was the year I stepped up to the plate. My mom and another amazing woman from the church helped me, and all went well. We had a lot of fun preparing snacks for the kids each night.

Car Napping

I was pretty nervous to head up the kitchen, especially because my mom and I were in Savannah the week before VBS. It was smooth sailing, though! One thing that was tough about coming home from vacation and heading straight back to work and VBS was that I was exhausted. Each night during the 45 minute drive to church, I would nap while Jimmy drove. He snapped this lovely picture of me one night, ha.

Brandy and Reggie

My mom sent me this picture of her dogs, Brandy and Reggie, and I have to share it. They’re just so cute. My parents tell me they are best buds. I am so ready to give Lola a fur-sibling!

A3

Hannah and I continue to try acro yoga, which induces loud laughing and falling on each other.

Coffee Gifts

It has been coffee city in the Zottola house lately. I love it! Jimmy and I celebrated two years of marriage on Tuesday. My birthday also falls on our anniversary, so Jimmy gave me a bag of coffee for my birthday and another bag for our anniversary. That night, I saw my mom at church and she also gave me a bag of coffee for my birthday, haha. I guess everyone knows I adore coffee 😉

Bathroom Renovation Progress

The bathroom renovation is going strong! We bought a mirror and light fixture. The current countertop and sink on the vanity are our old countertop and sink because we had to order a custom countertop for the vanity. We will be waiting a few weeks for it to be delivered, but we have plenty of work to do in the meantime. Like installing tile and painting the walls. I actually like painting, so I’m really looking forward to that!

Tell me about your life lately!
