My husband does this thing where he’ll crave a certain food and ask me to pick it up at the store. After a few weeks, I’ll begin thoughtfully picking up the item without him asking, then I’ll notice it’s starting to stockpile. The craving has ended. He’s moved on about as quickly as I could adjust.
My daughter does the same thing. Just when I remember to always buy the Tomato Basil Wheat Thins, she stops eating them.
It’s tough to keep up around our place!
I guess we all do that, though. We’re just kinda “into” something—a TV show, a song, a snack—for awhile, then it fades. At least that happens with a lot of things.
Speaking of being “into” things, I’ve enjoyed Modern Mrs Darcy’s book and lifestyle blog for awhile. I like Anne’s writing style, and we seem to like many of the same things (ironically, not books), like lists of what we’re “into.” I borrowed this idea from her.
Here are some things I’m currently into.
I did the whole Scentsy thing, which meant I went from having candles all over the house to only Scentsy warmers. I went to a holiday party at a neighbor’s house and she was burning a candle. It reignited (pun intended) my love of candles. I’m especially in to these three-wick White Barn candles from Bath & Body Works.
Ok, I’m always into pens, but the type changes. Right now I’m loving these Uni-Ball Air Rollerball pens my stepmom introduced me to.
This little girl
There’s been a lot of negativity on social media lately. This adorable little girl singing with her Dad was exactly the change I needed.
I buy a ton of Sharpies, then I stop using them for awhile, then I miss the Sharpies. Come back, Sharpies! Amazon wants me to buy these Sharpies. They keep advertising them to me on my social pages. I think they may be right because I’m pretty sure I need them.
I’ve been in a bit of a journal crisis lately. I use journals for my to do lists. I pretend it’s bullet journaling, but it’s honestly just a list with boxes next to it. Whatever. It works for me.
I bought a journal without a spiral, which meant I couldn’t tear the pages out. Then the pages started falling out. No more! Only spiral journals for me from now on.
I developed an almond and peanut intolerance the year before last, but I seem to be ok with peanut butter again. Hallelujah! The peanut butter is back!
I’m a summer girl. And, while it hasn’t been a super cold winter in Oklahoma, the wind makes it feel way colder than it is. We got a wonderful reprieve earlier this week, with a 70-degree January day. That sunny warmth felt amazing, plus I got to spend some time outside playing fetch with my dog.
