Vlog

Currently: January 2021

Happy New Year! My prayer is that this year is great for each and every person visiting this little corner of the internet. If you have any prayer requests, leave them in the comments or email me. I would love to be praying for you this year ❤

Here’s what’s current in my life this month!

Current mood Content. I’m finding so much joy in the place God has me at in life right now.

Current food Chocolate pancakes. Just had a few for breakfast before sitting down to write this post.

Current excitement My brother and sister are both having their second child this year. I cannot wait to meet the new family members ❤

Current fun We filmed a vlog the other day! It includes homeschool, cooking, cleaning, Jimmy hoarding chocolate (LOL) and more. Just a normal day at our zoo 😉

Current books This midwifery memoir, this guide on essential oils, and this Bible study on Hebrews. Sadie is loving Mittens at School and God, You Make Me Feel Special.

Current need New boots. I have a pair of riding boots that are on their last leg. Does anyone have recommendations for where to get a pair of boots at a decent price?!

Current beauty product Lip balm. This season has me stocking my purse, bathroom, and car with a tube so I’m always prepared!

Current cuteness Niva sleeping in our yard. If there’s snow on the ground, she wants to be outside. She often just curls up and does the Siberian swirl (where she uses her tail to keep her nose warm) and sleeps. So cute!

Current baked good Corn bread has been hitting the spot lately.

Current drink Coffee-wise, we’re working our way through a bag of this and my favorite non-coffee drink of the moment is orange juice.

Current craving I really want to go to the National Aviary here in Pittsburgh. I think it will be opening back up soon, so hopefully Jimmy, Sadie, and I can find a day to visit. Sadie was only a few months old the last time we went and I think she would really enjoy it now!

Current fun We went to our church on New Year’s Eve for a fellowship and it was a blast. The perfect way to end 2020.

Tell me something current in your life!

A Few Favorites

Hello! Just popping in today to share some favorites as of late. It’s currently 5:52 am on Saturday as I type up this post and a certain little someone is keeping me company because she woke up way too early. Like 4:45 am early.

We took a photo on my laptop, tired eyes and all 😉

Alright, onto to the favorites!

1. Hummus. The lemon hummus is great and isn’t overly sweet. The buffalo style hummus is spicy and full of flavor! Do you like hummus? If so, do you have a favorite flavor? I’m a fan of roasted red pepper.

2. Park days with Sadie. I know our beautiful weather days in Pittsburgh are likely limited for the rest of 2020, so any time the sun is shining and it’s warm you will probably find us outside. 

We went to the park this week and I was impressed with Sadie wanting to try new things like climbing different structures, going down slides, etc. as she’s a pretty cautious child. Go Sader Tot!

3. Studying contentment. I’m currently working through this study guide on cultivating contentment and it’s very inspiring and has me doing a lot of thinking and praying.

I was especially struck by the quote below. What a wonderful reminder that this broken world we live in isn’t all there is to life. With Jesus as our Savior, we can look forward to eternity in heaven each time we feel discontent in our life on earth.

4. Little moments. If it’s warm enough, Sadie and I eat lunch outside and sometimes we let Malcolm sneak out with us.

Other little moments: we had our monthly family night on Thursday and had Thanksgiving dinner. Sadie and I cooked the green bean casserole together and it was so sweet having her help me.

5. Decorating for Christmas. Yay! I’ll probably do a separate post on this, but we have our decorations up and it’s making me so happy! We filmed a vlog of the process and I have a feeling this will be fun to look back on 😉

Tell me some of your favorite things lately!
