3 things I'm looking forward to when this is over


You guys know I am all about staying positive and fully believe in the power of maintaining a positive mindset! But I’ll be real with you guys – it kind of feels like we are going on day 14827 of quarantine. Ya feel me? So, while I’m maintaining a positive mindset during this time, I think it can also be helpful to think about what we are all looking forward to & excited to experience again once this is all over! I have a list about 10 miles long but today I’ll share my top 3 things I’m looking forward to!

1. Dinner + drinks on a patio

I’m actually surprised by how much I miss going out to eat! Ever since Shiloh became mobile, we actually rarely eat out haha – we’ll typically just get our food to go and eat at home. But since we’ve all been at home non stop for the past month or so…I really miss eating out at a restaurant! I’m so looking forward to getting some good Tex Mex and margaritas and enjoying them on a patio once we can all go out to restaurants again!



2. Church + community

I’m so thankful for things like Zoom and Facetime and how those things have made it possible for us to still do church online or see our friend’s faces. But honestly…I’m so ready to just go to an actual church again and be around friends IRL again as opposed to seeing everything through a computer screen! I’m so excited to actually worship with other believers all in the same room, hug my friends, and have real heart-to-heart conversations over coffee instead of over a computer screen. I miss that in person connection with friends and family for sure! I can’t wait to have friends over again, meet up with a girlfriend for coffee, and just be social + relational outside of a screen!

3. Wearing real clothes!

Don’t get me wrong – I love loungewear and pajamas as much as the next person…but I miss putting on real clothes haha and having somewhere to wear them to! I recently bought this adorable shirt dress from Walmart (for $22 y’all!) and it’s made me so excited for the date nights we’ll go on this spring / summer, the trips we’ll take, or the fun outings we’ll go on as a family! If you’re needing a little pick me up these days…definitely browse some of Walmart’s new arrivals and I think it’ll really get you excited for all the adventures you will go on this spring and summer!

In case you’re needing some inspo to get you excited for spring and summer, I’ve rounded up some of my new favorites from Walmart below! And all of these are under $50!


What are you looking the most forward to when all of this is over?! This time at home has definitely made me appreciate simple things like hugging my mom, going to church, or date night at our favorite restaurant SO much more than I used to! Now I can’t wait to do all of those things in dresses like this one I got from Walmart and give my loungewear a little break haha. Thanks for reading!
