The Magnolia Story

Currently: June 2018

Current book Recently finished The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines and already want to read it again! Also reading the book of Genesis in the Bible.

Current craving A trip to Hobby Lobby. I’ve been wanting to do some crafting. Maybe I’ll make a trip out this week. I love that store!

Current confession I had to walk about a mile or two to pet sitting one day this week because my truck wouldn’t start and it was such a dumb move on my part. I was walking up this windy hill (with Mavis, lol) where the speed limit is like 40 and the temperature was above 80. I made it safely, but it definitely wasn’t my smartest moment 😉

Current blessing Jimmy, as always. He fixed the fuel pump in my truck and it is now back in working order. He has saved us so much money over the years with his handiness and knowledge of all things car-related.

Current beauty product NuSkin SPF 50 Sunscreen. Jimmy and I got a few bottles of this before we went to the beach last month and I also use it while I pet sit, mow, and work in the garden. It works well, smells great, and doesn’t feel like it just sits on my skin, if that makes sense.

Current obsession Get togethers! We had Jimmy and Josh’s birthday cookout over Memorial Day weekend, and then we had Jimmy’s mom and siblings over this weekend to grill celebrate his birthday. I am just loving spending time with family and firing up the grill. We even set up our little lighted pop up canopy!

Current need More hours in a day. I feel like summer is so amazing and busy and I’d like about ten more hours per day to get everything done and enjoy this beautiful season.

Current goal Getting started on our daughter’s room. We have all sorts of ideas, we just need to get to work!

Current food Dark chocolate almond butter. Also loving all the seasonal produce this time of year like corn, watermelon, and tomatoes!

Current procrastination Organizing our spice cabinet. Currently, we have these magnetic spice tins on our fridge and have other spices in a cabinet and it just feels disorganized. We’ve had the magnetic tins for a few years and they’re starting to show signs of wear. I don’t know if I should replace them or just keep everything in a cabinet. Any ideas?

Current excitement Jimmy finished making our bed and we are loving it! Would anyone want to read a post about it with progress pictures from along the way?
