laughing at how silly the girls are with each other lately. addison taught amelia how to do bumps yesterday (or cheers with your cups as some people know it) and for a good 15 minutes all we did was play bumps with cups. and all the giggles out of both girls.

watching the sunrise this morning because i was up early enough. 

eating so many avocados and hardboiled eggs.

celebrating day three of whole30. one day at a time y’all.

feeling guilty about having a sprite yesterday and not even realizing i was doing it until it was almost gone but i’m not going to dwell on it but instead keep powering on.

looking forward to my dad coming to visit us next week. so many fun things planned!

drinking a lot of water. i got a new cup in december to make me want to keep drinking (a good cup that you like is everything when trying to meet your water goal amiright?) and it’s next to me all the time now.

enjoying the little snuggle bunny that just ran out of her room and into my arms and now won’t stop talking 🙂

thinking about the beautiful note my grandma sent me the other day and how fun it would be to be pen pals with her. i’m mailing her a letter back this morning so let’s hope we can keep it up 🙂

thankful for a good gym daycare. we joined the ymca and the girls love the play area there and i love getting back into running.

hoping to keep waking up before everyone else because that 45 minutes of quiet time is bliss.

spending the evenings working on a puzzle. i forgot how much i love them until addison got a few for christmas and i became obsessed with hers. it also really helps at night because i listen to a book on audible and drink water and work on a puzzle and i don’t think about snacking.

reading if you find this letter by hannah brencher and…

listening to rising strong by brene brown.

just finished the magnolia story by chip and joanna gaines yesterday and it was so so soooooo good.

next up is all the light we cannot see by anthony doerr on audible and present over perfect by shauna niequist in hard copy.

excited about all the books want to read this year because last year i hardly read ten books and this year i want to read 52.

happy about addison’s school starting back up today so i can have a few hours to wipe down this house of puppy paw prints and tiny handprints and do some meal prep.

    I have a favorite water bottle that goes everywhere with me! It's easier to drink more water when it is always right beside you!

    I absolutely love your list and can relate to so many of these! I have The Magnolia Story on my reading list! How long do you think the wait at the library would be for it? Lol.
