Penn State


I haven’t done a “currently” post since January. I love looking back on these posts. So, here’s what’s currently going on in my life!

Current books The book of Romans and The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo (Much to Jimmy’s dismay, haha). I have donated so many things I don’t use or wear and it’s literally so hard not to dig into Jimmy’s belongings. Yikes.

Current music Trust in You by Lauren Daigle.

Current guilty pleasure Painting. Canvas, walls, anything! I just tried my hand at watercolor on Tuesday. I became interested in it when my sister and I watercolored a Bible story with preschoolers at our church.


Current nail color Nothing right now, but I just removed very chipped teal the other day.

Current drink Starbucks Ethopia blend. It’s so smooth! Still going strong on my birthday and anniversary coffee.

Coffee Mug

Current food I’m loving eggs on top of potatoes. It’s weird, but surprisingly tasty. I guess I get pretty creative when I need to go to the store.

Current television show Anything that has to do with the Olympics.

Current wish list More time with my sweet husband. He’s super into the new Pokemon Go app, so he’s been taking walks with me and Lola so he can catch Pokemon. I’ll take whatever husband time I can get😉

Walks with Jimmy

Current needs Nada!

Current indulgence Taking time to decorate our house. I received gift cards for TJ Maxx and Kirkland’s for my birthday, so I’ve been able to buy a few vases and art pieces.

Current blessing I’m feeling super blessed by God to have such a loving and supportive church family and immediate family. My mom and dad treated me to lunch on Tuesday because they were both on “my side” of Pittsburgh. It was lovely.


Current excitement Helping plan Hannah’s birthday and graduation party in August. I’m so excited to celebrate my sister! I haven’t mentioned it yet, but she’s leaning towards studying nursing at Penn State. I think she will make an amazing nurse because she’s so caring and hard working.

What’s your current blessing, book, and indulgence?


I wrapped up my fall semester yesterday. I’d like to say that it felt good, but I actually ended the day in tears. Not cool Allie, not cool.

I headed to campus to present my senior research project, which is kind of a big deal at Penn State. I wasn’t too nervous because I had practiced the presentation almost every day since Thanksgiving, and wrote a 46 page paper on my topic.
