        Here’s my currently most for the month! This month I’m…

        Creating this super cute painting. Ever since I read How to Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck I have been obsessed with the idea of loving well, so I wanted to put that on a painting where I could see it any time I looked at my wall. And my specialty when it comes to painting is flowers. Especially sunflowers and daisies. So I thought I would paint something that incorporated those, featured colors I like, and had ‘love well’ painted across the middle. Now keep in mind, this painting is only halfway done. I still have to paint the darker purple lines (that outline the petals) on the daisies, darker yellow lines (same thing) on the sunflowers, add little yellow dots that look like seeds to the middle of the daisies, and little brown dots to the middle of the sunflowers. Then I will paint on some small light pink flowers all spaced out around the background before painting on "love well". I can promise you it'll look much better once it's finished.

        I’m currently wishlisting…I’m not sure what I’m wishlisting. Usually, if I want something badly enough, I just go on ahead and get it, unless it costs an extreme amount of money of course. So, I’m not exactly what is on my wish list. Maybe some new nail polish and nail art supplies. I’ve become kind of obsessed with nail art recently, and I don’t have many nail supplies. Also, books are always on my wish list. I could always use some more; my bookshelf has a few empty crannies.

        I’m currently hoping…that someone will come to my house and tell me I’ve just won a million dollars! No, I’m kidding. Although that would be nice. Anyway, I’m hoping that the lock-in I’ve been planning for the youth group at my church goes well. This is my first time planning one (youth ministry training!) and I hope all goes smoothly. I’ll let you know in a couple of weeks.

        I am currently eating some amazingly delicious pancakes. My genius of a mother came up with the idea for using the Trim Healthy Mama cake-in-a-mug recipe for pancakes, and let me tell you, it’s really good. Especially with peanut butter or syrup on top and a side of bacon and eggs. Obviously I’m still in love with my mother’s cooking (who ever stops?). She really is talented in the kitchen. Hopefully I take after her.

        And, I’m currently watching a couple of different things. When I have a lot of time on my hands, I like to settle in on the couch with my writing notebook and watch movies or shows like Say Yes to the Dress and Four Weddings, but on a regular basis, I don’t actually watch that much TV. I do, however, have a couple of shows that I cannot miss, so they are constantly being recorded. Shows such as Girl Meets World—because I grew up on Boy Meets World and love getting to see more of Cory and Topanga—Bringing Up Bates because I just love their family, Duck Dynasty—because who doesn’t love that show? I also love Fixer Upper—Joanna has my exact style—and When Calls the Heart—although that is currently in-between seasons.

        So, that’s what I’m up to this month! Happy August!
