Life Lately: February 2017 Update

Another month in 2017 is coming to a close. How did that happen so fast? I mean, I know February is a short month, but it’s still crazy (and exciting!) to believe that spring is just around the corner! I can’t wait for some sunshine and green grass – what about you? Check out what’s been going on in my world and be sure to share what’s new with you, too! 🙂

What I’m Reading:

Still rereading the Harry Potter Series! I’m on the Half Blood Prince now – only one more left! It’s always so sad when it’s over. *tears* For new reads, I’m hoping to check out The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy or The Dresden Files, both have which been strongly recommended. They sound right up my alley so I’ll let you know how they go!

What I’m Binge-Watching:

Nate and I are still continuing our re-watch of The Office. (PB+J for life, amiright?) I think we are on season 5 now? I’ve also started A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix. I remember reading some of the books as a kid and seeing the old movie version with Jim Carrey. So far Netflix has done a great job with the series and Neil Patrick Harris is just always perfection.

What I’m Creating: 

Been doing a little bit of creating here and there! Made some awesome planner clips with my Silhouette to help keep me organized and crafted some adorable hair flowers out of scrap fabric in my stash. It always feels good to spend time with my creative outlets! Hoping to have time to do even more crafty stuff in the future!

What I’m Needing: 

A little bit more prayer. We got an offer on our house that was accepted (yay!) Just prayers that this deal goes through and that the new buyers love living here! We’ve loved this little cottage to pieces but we are ready to pass it on to someone new and move a little bit further south (in our state, not the actual south). It’s really hard to be patient as house-selling takes time even when you have an offer, so prayers for patience, please!

What I’m Listening to: 

To keep spirits high and productivity moving, I like to put on Electro Swing music. It’s such an awesome genre! It gets my toe tapping and puts me in the zone to just knock a bunch of work out. Plus it’s just SO fun to dance to!

What I’m Dreaming about: 

Dreaming about our new house and all the fun things I’m going to do to it! We haven’t started looking yet, but I just know that the right house for us is out there and I’m dreaming of the day when I can decorate it with ALL THE THINGS. 😀

What I’m Excited For:

Excited for the prospect of looking for a new house soon! I can’t wait to find our new, more permanent home. I’m also excited for SUNSHINE – it’s peeking out a bit today and I can’t wait for warmer weather. Also, I should be getting my next ipsy bag in the mail sometime soon and I’m super excited to try out all the fun products!

What I’m Worried about:

I’m trying reeeeeaaallllllyyyyyyyyy hard not to worry about things! Que sera, sera.

What I’m Learning:

Still learning patience (why is it so darn hard??) and learning to trust that everything will be alright. It’s so easy to get sucked into anxiety and worrying, but I have been succeeding a bit more lately and trusting that things will be fine, looking at things positively, and pressing on ahead.

What I’m Loving: 

The fact that I am so incredibly blessed. Yes, it has been a tough season, with setbacks, disappointments, and long waits, but in the midst of that, I really am truly so extremely blessed. There are so many good things in my life and I need to focus on those, as well as blessing others with the gifts I’ve been given. I love the Lord and all that He has given me!
