Confessions + Focus

I have some fun confessions today. Some are totally random, some make life easier, and some are just… different. Let’s get started. Oh, and I so want to hear some of your confessions in the comments ­čśë

Confession #1 Our family doesn’t eat dinner at our table together.

Why? Because we don’t have enough chairs, lol. Our kitchen table seats two people, so Jimmy and I take turns sitting on top of the kitchen counter, while the other sits across from Sadie at the table.┬áSomeday we will get a bigger table!

Confession #2 Sometimes the only way I can get a bit of real estate work done while at home with Sadie and Niva is to take everyone outside and set up my laptop up somewhere out of reach from Sadie.

I can’t sit at the table because laptops = toddler magnet, lol.

Confession #3 I like to drink hot water. 

My favorite way to drink water is to turn on the tap until the water coming out is steaming, then I fill up my water bottle and enjoy. Super Sparrow water bottles are amazing at keeping hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. Unlike other popular brands, they don’t cost an arm and a leg.┬á

Super Sparrow Water Bottles from Amazon

I’m strangely picky about water bottles and I’ve been so impressed with this brand. The fact that they have so many different types, sizes, and colors of bottles makes them even more amazing. There’s definitely one for everyone.

Confession #4┬áNiva doesn’t bark and we don’t mind.

Toddler and husky

Huskies just aren’t barkers. When the mailman drops off a package while Sadie is napping? No barking. It is glorious. Is she a good guard dog? Absolutely not, lol. I will note that huskies howl, but barking isn’t really their thing.

There are a million other reasons as to why we love our Niva girl (she’s sweet, incredible with Sadie, and just a happy-go-lucky pup), but the whole no barking thing is definitely a blessing.┬á

Those are my confessions. Onto the focus portion of this post. I was reading a great devotional in the Bible app and the words below really struck me.

Breaking bad habits

I had never thought about bad habits in that way, so I thought it was worth sharing! I’m continually trying to live a life that pleases God and instead of focusing on what I’m not doing well, I need to keep my focus on growing in my faith ­čÖé
