Happy holiday Monday to those who have today off. Andrew and the kids are both off but we are just getting back from vacation so still trying to get back to normal around here. I love these currently loving posts because it’s a great way to share a bunch of different things I love right now!
Currently Loving: January 2023
Recent Reads: I have already read some books I loved this year. I was saving both Becka Mack books: Consider Me and Play With Me for our trip and LOVED them both! If you like Hockey romances- this is for you!
Morning Brain Dump: I was listening to a podcast recently and someone talked about how in the morning if you have anxiety one thing you can do is brain dump on a sheet of paper. I went and got a 5-star spiral notebook and each day I write down the date and brain dump things I need to do, things I’d like to do, goals for the day, and things I’m stressed about. It has been a game changer!
Dry (rest of January): I did not drink at all the first week of January and then after treating my body like garbage on our vacation decided to do the next 4 weeks dry. So a little belated rest of dry January (and some of February). I will report back!
Green Tea: In detoxing from our trip I started drinking some green tea and I really like it! It’s supposed to really help!
Lake Valentines Pajamas: Lake Pajamas sent Charlotte and I some matching Valentines jammies. This set for Charlotte and this set for me as well as this nightgown! So so so cute!
All white On Cloud sneakers: One of the Christmas gifts I got myself was a pair of all white On Cloud sneakers! I love them so much! They are so comfy and bonus – they clean super easy.
Merit Beauty: I have a full review coming next week but I have been using a LOT of Merit Beauty products the last couple of months and they are such a great clean beauty option.
Peloton Runs: On our vacation I could not do Peloton rides so I did runs on the treadmill using my app and remembered how much I love these Peloton runs. Robin is for sure my favorite run instructor.
Friday me day: Something I started in the fall was taking a half day every Friday for a me day. Usually I do a long walk, get a smoothie, and maybe do a manicure and pedicure if it’s a week for that! It’s really been a good start to the weekend.
What is something you’re currently loving?
I need to try the morning brain dump thing! We get up and exercise first thing, so I sometimes go through all the things in my mind while working out. But I need to get it all on paper.
I want to get into running again! Its been a long time haha
There’s something very romantic aboue Valentine jammies. I need to buy some.
Some beautiful things on this list and you’ve reminded me of the box of forgotten green tea I have in my kitchen! I used to live for green tea!
I like to do my morning brain dump in the form of writing in my digital planners. What I have been loving this month is making myself a pot of tea in the Royal Albert teapot I got for christmas each morning and setting up a tray with all the fixings (honey, sugar cubes, cream, a pastry of some sort). I then set the tray down next to me on the sofa where I proceed to do my brain dump. It is also a great moment of reflection.
We are currently rewatching Harry potter movies and its something I look forward to at night.
Ooh the morning brain dump sounds interesting, I should definitely give it a try 🙂
Nnniiicccceeee…currently, I am loving the HP laptop I am using these days! It’s super fast, light and the audio is simply mwah!
Great ideas, I like the idea of having Friday for you. I’m just starting to drink more water. Thank you for sharing!
Those are some wonderful selections of things to love this 2023. I am loving comfy pajamas and coffee the most at the moment.
Oooh! I’ve never read a hockey romance before – that sounds amazing! We have a trip coming up so I’ll have to order your suggestions.
