Reading A few books at once! Right now, The Excellent Wife, and the Shofar Blew, and the Oswald Chambers Daily Devotional Bible. It depends what time of the day it is and what I’m in the mood for. 🙂

The daily devotional Bible has been by far the best part of my year so far. Some friends and I have committed to reading through a section daily and by the end of the year, we’ll have read the entire bible! This is always something I’ve aspired to do but always felt quite intimidated by it. This Bible is perfect because it is broken up into 365 days, and there are sections from a few different books of the Bible. For example, right now, I read a little something from Genesis, Psalms, Proverbs, and Matthew in one sitting. And it all ties together, which is really cool to see how God connected certain themes throughout the Bible. Thank you, Jarilyn, for this fabulous idea and for helping to keep me accountable and thank you, sweet Bonnie, for gifting me this special Bible for Christmas!

Watching Season 2 of This Is Us! Anyone else? It’s our favorite show to watch together and I love that they are touching on foster care. Randall is my favorite character, but I must admit that I have the biggest crush on Jack Pearson…aka…Jess from Gilmore Girls. 🙂

When we were on Maui, we bought a $4.99 app that was a self-guided tour recording for Haleakala National Park. It was the best $5 we spent on the whole vacation because the tour was fantastic! The tour’s soundtrack was awesome too. We drove up and down the volcano twice during our stay there, and on the way down, the app plays this song. I sang it allllll vacation long and as you can hear, it’s super easy to get it stuck in your head.

I honestly forgot about the song until last week, but randomly one night after work I searched for it and found it and had no idea that it was from Lilo & Stitch! I remember seeing the movie however many years ago when it came out, but didn’t remember this song. Now I listen to it at least 2 times a day because it’s just so fun and happy and brings back good Maui memories. Call me crazy for loving a children’s song but if you listen to this song and it doesn’t bring you insane joy, something might be wrong with you. 🙂

And this song was also on the tour, too!

Eating So much popcorn lately! I just can’t get enough. Lately I’ve been loving getting creative with it and adding different toppings. I like making salt and vinegar popcorn or adding the Everything but the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s.

How do you take your popcorn?

Drinking My daily green smoothie, as I type this. I know I sound like a broken record because I talk about this combo so much, but it really is tasty, filling, and perfect!

Simple recipe: 1 cup spinach, 1 cup coconut water, 1 scoop protein powder, and one banana. Blend and enjoy!

Indulging in Restaurant Week at a new place for our date tonight! 5 course meal, here we come. 🙂

Anticipating going home for the Eagles Super Bowl!!! Only 8 days away!

Cooking lots of stir-fry lately. My go-to is jasmine or brown rice, mixed veggies, tempeh, and coconut aminos.

Praising God for taking care of a scary situation in our neighborhood last night. He is good, he is faithful, and he always protects us!

Praying for healing with the person involved last night, for my father-in-law’s recovery from his surgery, for my Nana’s health.

  1. Popcorn! Try TJ’s Chili Lime seasoning on the popcorn (it’s not spicy). I love it. Sometimes I put that AND a little bit of Sugar in the Raw on it. Sort of a sweet & salty combo that I love!!!

    Love your posts 🙂
