Watching – This is Us. Need I say more. (also Blindspot, Grey’s, project Runway Allstar, and When calls the Heart)

Trying – to manage our day to day schedule. I finally realized I need to let God be in control and quit trying to fix all the things.

Cooking – dinner most nights. Mostly tacos. Because Tacos are life.

Drinking – Passion Tea with a Raspberry sweetener. From Starbucks. try it. A Venti is only $2.92
