I am currently…
Accomplishing: unpacking some boxes. We’ve been in our house two and half years! Oy! Some of boxes are full of decorating-type things that I didn’t use when we first moved in. Now I have the itch to change things up, so it’s a good time to sort through those items. Other boxes are full of stuff we dragged from house to house during our Air Force career. I need to just. get. rid. of. them.
Feeling: excited! We’re getting ready for our trip to Alaska! I’ll be working three homeschool conventions, and then I’ll get to see our son who lives up there! My husband and daughter will fly up after the conventions, and we’ll all be together for a few days of family vacation! “Excited” doesn’t begin to cover it!
Needing: not a blessed thing. Truly. What am I wanting? Another camping trip before it gets hot. Some kayaking time this weekend. And I’d kind of like to get a really nice pair of sunglasses but just can’t bear paying for them! I’m all about quality eye wear when it comes to glasses and contacts, but it’s HARD to spend a lot on sunglasses. On the other hand I’d love a pair of sunglasses that fit well and last more than 2 months. Do you sense my struggle with this?!?
Practicing: my fashion skills by doing the Get Your Pretty On (GYPO) Spring Style Challenge. I first did the GYPO challenges in 2015. They taught me how to shop wisely and how to style a TON of outfits with a wisely curated closet. I gained confidence in knowing how to dress my 40-something year old self and look age appropriate AND trendy! It’s SO nice to just feel…pretty! I jumped back in this spring for a fun refresher and for the positive, encouraging camaraderie of the challenge’s private Facebook group. I’ve already made some new friends!
Pinning: these brownies! Oh my word, y’all! Deep Chocolate Brownies with Chevre Swirls! Make them. Now. You’re welcome. I used part goat cheese (chevre) and part cream cheese because my husband isn’t a fan of goat cheese. He LOVED these brownies!
I’m also working on my Springtime Fun List! Pop over HERE to see what I’m hoping to do this spring. I’ll post an official update on my progress later this month.
Now it’s time to hop over to In Residence and Jess Gets Dressed Sometimes to see what they–and a lot of other lovely ladies–are currently accomplishing, feeling, needing, practicing, and pinning! Woohoo! I LOVE THIS LINK-UP!
