I have seen lots of blogs I read do posts similar to this, but I was most recently inspired by my sweet friend, Jen, to post a little more about me and what my life looks like at this current moment in time.


Currently... waiting for Brian to get home from work (8:15 pm). Poor guy has been having to pull some long 12+ hour days recently.

Listening to... THIS incredible album that released yesterday. I've been listening to it all day while cleaning and cooking and it's truly their best yet. Buy it, guys. It will bless you beyond reason.

Reading... Nehemiah, Proverbs, and Gone Girl. And desperately wanting to grow my book list for when Brian leaves at the end of the month. Any ideas or great recent reads? Help a sister out!

Eating... some homemade granola at the moment. I get so hungry waiting for Brian to get home, but cherish our dinnertime together too much to eat without him.

Cooking... We've got these yummy, easy chicken tacos waiting in the crockpot for us right now. Also on the menu this week: lettuce wraps, fish tacos (tacos much? I lack creativity), black bean burgers, grilled veggie & hummus pizza.

Dreaming... About the next big trip Brian and I are reeeeeally wanting to take.

Running... I mean, this is hilarious ya'll. I'm including this one because Jen is a runner and she included it. But ALSO because I ran TWICE "with" Brian (he was far, far ahead of me) this weekend. I am not a runner. I actually hate it. But the Lord's been teaching me a lot about self discipline and perseverance lately and this felt like a tangible way to trust the Lord through doing something that is really hard for me.

Feeling... anxious about Brian leaving, but excited for Carly Jo to come visit me while he is gone!

Missing... my parents, and my brothers, and home! My parents are selling their house and building their dream house, which is making me all nostalgic about all the memories I have growing up with my brothers in that wonderful house. Also missing Chipotle and Target like crazy.

Wanting... to revamp my blog, maaaaaybe change the name, and get serious about documenting our life on here!

Wearing... black skinnies and blue v-neck. I am in a dressing rut lately. Can't wait to pull out some summer wear in a few short weeks (days?). It was warm enough here this weekend to wear a sundress, and now it's chilly again. Chilly, ha! It's like 65. My body is ruined by this tropical island.

Pinning... Wall hanging arrangements and ideas to give some life to my beige walls. I. Need. Color. in my life. And recipes. Always recipes.

Learning... Like previously mentioned, learning so much in Proverbs about discipline and perseverance. Just finished walking through David Platt's Secret Church, How to Study Your Bible with our community group. It was incredible and has me desiring to dive into the Word and know God's truth in a more complete way.

Enjoying... new friendships, lots of couple friends that Brian and I truly love spending time with, all of our things that finally arrived (!!) that we hadn't seen since June. And always enjoying this gorgeous island we call home.


What about ya'll? Give me a glimpse into your life, currently! 


  1. Loved this post!

    Currently I am sitting in front of my computer recovering from tending to a crying baby for the last hour. God bless my husband for taking over for me. I just ate a huge, delicious cupcake that a friend made for me today. I needed that cupcake more than I can say!

  2. I love this and will be stealing it :) ...when I'm wearing better clothes

  3. I've been having so many Target withdrawals lately! What kind of books do you like? Non fiction? Fiction? Biography? That will help in my suggestions. Are you on goodreads? It's a great place to get ideas of what to read.

  4. Anything by Francine Rivers.. have you read the Mark of the Lion Series.. sooo good!
