Currently… (March 2017)

Hi guys!

Happy mid-week from Makena Rose!

I was out late last night helping with this year’s Dine to be Kind!  Did you follow along on Instagram Stories?  I hope you had a nice night too.

Let’s dive right into this month’s Currently…

Currently I’m…


Tour books for one of my summer trips… here’s a hint!!! Ahhhh!

I can’t wait!


WE SHOULD BE FRIENDS!!! :-))))  How much fun is this video.


I haven’t been watching much TV lately, but when I do I’ve been catching an episode or two of Parenthood.

I’ve also been watching Nashville… but let’s talk about it…  (Spoiler alert!!!)

I was enjoying the direction the show was heading with Rayna and Deacon finally being happy, but I can’t believe they killed off Rayna.  I didn’t realize that Connie Britton had left the show so I was blindsided when she didn’t recover from that car wash.  The episode after her death that focused on her daughter’s losing their mother hit a little too close to home.  I was balling while trying to run on the treadmill… sigh.  I hope the show can still continue to be good without her.  It’s been one of my favorites ever since it started.

(End spoiler alert!)


The weather here has been crazy… 70’s one day and 30’s the next.  I have been wearing everything from maxi dresses with sweaters to full on winter gear.


Banana Bread Muffins!  These babies have no added refined sugar and are hitting the blogosphere tomorrow.

Healthy Clean Eating Banana Bread Muffins recipe / Running in a Skirt


Peppermint tea on repeat.  This stuff is amazing.


Apparently all the pizza???

The Hubs and I have had our fair share of pizza recently.  Luckily there’s a fair share a huge green salads and smoothies in the mix too.


The new Beauty and the Beast movie comes out the weekend after next.  Have you seen this clip yet?

I can’t remember the last time I was so excited about a movie coming out.  I only see at most a few movies a year in the theater, but this will be one of them!


For the Hubs.  He’s starting to work really long hours leading up to tax day and it’s only going to get worse!  I’m just praying he stays healthy and as stress free as possible.  He works so hard for us to have a nice life and I am so very lucky to have him.

Thank you so much for reading today and for your kind comments. 

I’m linking up with Marvelous Monday & Thinking Out Loud Thursday.

Your turn!

    Switzerland!!! YAY! That’s so exciting. You will love it. I was fortunate enough to spend 10 days in Zurich a couple of summers ago. It’s so incredibly beautiful. Let me know if you need some tips on what to check out =)
    Makena Rose is too cute!!! Do you just kiss her head all day long?
    The muffins look good – looking forward to that recipe. Oh and that pizza. My favourite food ever.
    Also super excited for the new Beauty & the Beast movie. They have tried a remake before and I wasn’t impressed, it looks like they are doing a great job with this one and I can’t wait to see it.
    Oh your poor hubs (and you for missing him!). I used to have a job in finance and had to help with tax season (12+ hour days, 6+ days a week). It’s just plain yucky. Hopefully the end is in sight.

    I will definitely be praying for you and the hubs! <3

      Thanks Krista! Any must do sites or advice is appreciated. Right now I’m thinking into Zurich-Lucerne-Bern-Murren-Zermatt-Lausanne- Geneva… with the most time in Murren because I love nature over cities.

    We are eating all the pizza too! Recently it has been our thing to try out all the different pizza spots in Baltimore. There are so many! And some really good ones!

    Switzerland is one of my favorite countries. I would move there in a heartbeat if I could! You’re going to love it 🙂

    Don’t know how accountants do it. Hope it’s not too terrible a season for him (I’m assuming he’s an accountant, obviously).

    Currently drinking all the green tea. Just feeling a bit meh this morning, and I have this antioxidant green tea I bought in AZ that I swear always does the trick! So far, anyway. Brewed some up this morning to take with me (cause it’s also cold and uber windy).

    Switzerland — how lucky! I’ve always wanted to go there.

    Thank you for being such a huge part of the success of Dine To Be Kind! You always bring the “star power” and sincerity. BTW, on that banana bread muffin recipe, what can I substitute if I don’t like bananas?

      BAAAHHHHH!!!!! Maybe another recipe would be good for you :-). Thanks for including me in the fun!

    Omg Switzerland, that’ll be amazing! And nothing wrong with indulging in pizza, we’ve been doing that too lately. It’s definitely my favorite food! And thinking of your hubby, this time of year must be so stressful, about a month left!

    • JulieWunder March 9, 2017 at 8:33 am - Reply

      Yes! Can’t wait to have it behind us. So much fun planned this summer.

    Switzerland looks fun….praying…lots of irons on the fire….but two Sundays ago our missions pastor passed me in the hall and just said “we’re going to Montana next summer…the guy will be here for the missions conference.” So after meeting the guy, I am praying about going to Montana on missions for a week next summer

    Julie, I appreciate so much when you are bold enough to say that you “pray”. We have the blessings we enjoy because we are blessed by God. I know some will disagree with that statement. I pray one day they too will understand and come to know Him as their Savior. You are special to so many readers and because of that, you have a platform on which to speak “the truth”. We were put on this Earth for one reason and one reason alone, to worship God. Those who realize that truth, are the ones who must lead others to that same saving grace. I am so grateful to be one of those and in case you didn’t realize it, you are also one! Thank you for being a praying gal who loves her family and the life God has given her. You are blessed because you are loved by The Almighty, The King of Kings, The Great I am! Share that love with a smiling face and a heart of gold!

      Thank you Shelly! You made me tear up! You are too kind. xoxo

    I love the vegan recipes that you share….My family and I stay away from red meat, but on an occasion we will eat extra lean ground meat….

    • JulieWunder March 9, 2017 at 8:31 am - Reply

      I’m so glad you like them! Eating even a little less meat is better for you and the world!

    Ahh Switzerland!! How fun is that! I’m currently not reading anything because I am just not interested in the book that has been sitting next to me on my nightstand for weeks, ha! I may be heading to the library today for a new book!

    • JulieWunder March 9, 2017 at 8:30 am - Reply

      That’s me too! If I don’t like my book it just sits there because I feel like I have to finish it…

    OMG I would love to go to Switzerland. Cool! And now I just want me some banana muffins and peppermint tea. So comforting. I didn’t think that I would be the least bit interested in the live action BatB, but I tell you what… it looks AMAZING
