Currently | October

We are already in the 7th day of October and I’m kind of shocked by how quickly this year has flown by. It is already time to do my monthly currently post with these two lovely ladies – Anne & Jenna. I so love being a part of this fantastic monthly link-up. You should join us too!

EATING | I think you all know quite a great deal about what I’m eating right now, but if you missed it I’m doing a Whole30, with all the details over HERE. Basically, lots of meat, veggies, and fruit. (Although I’m still dreaming of pizza folks…)

EXPLORING | Various organization concepts, especially planner ideas. I have a bit of an obsession with writing everything down, making endless lists, and spending too much time planning to be organized instead of actually being organized. I’m desperate to find a system that is efficient and actually leaves time for me to accomplish the things on my to-do list. I would love to have your suggestions too!

WEARING | All the comfy fall clothes. Leggings, yoga pants, sweatshirts, & sweaters. I work from home where I obviously don’t have a uniform/dress code. But on the rare chances I do head out into the real world I tend to reach for my favorite jeans, a button up or sweater, a scarf, and probably some toms or boots. Color wise, throw me some dark red/maroon, teals, and blacks and I’ll be a happy person.

ADMIRING |  Friends who are following dreams. Moriah of Untidy Grace just announced her plans to pursue Holy Yoga instruction. I have two compassionate and powerful friends who are finishing up nursing school. Another dear friend is pushing through her senior year of college as she plans her future with her fiance and I am so excited to see where it takes them. Then I have the dear friends who are embracing their callings and raising little ones to know Jesus and it just all makes me so happy. I love supporting their dreams and I’m so thankful they will support mine as well.

COLLECTING | Inspiration for a fall photo shoot. I think i have lined up the chance for Husband and I to have some pictures captured for us and I am so excited! We haven’t had real pictures done since our wedding (although my momma took some great ones in November 2013, see below). I’m already pulling a bunch of ideas that I love so we can have a shoot that really captures us at this stage in life. Now just to decide whether to include our pup or not…

HOPING | To get my hair cut soon. It’s been over a year since I really had it cut and it’s getting long and beyond lifeless. I’ve been saying this for the past week though, so I’m not sure when I will get the nerve to do it.

WISHING | Fall would stick around forever. Unfortunately though, it tends to show up later than I’d wish and then winter is always early to the  party. In 2013 and 2014 we had snow in OCTOBER folks! I’m not ready for that! So let’s just keep wishing that fall sticks around as long as possible.

That’s it for this month’s currently post! What are you up to right now? Join the link-up or comment below with your current goings-on!

  1. Oh DITTO with wishing Fall would just last forever. It’s my perfect temperature – cool enough to wear layers like scarves, BUT not fridged where you need to start your car in the morning to warm up. We need to plan some family photos. Thanks for the reminder! Those pics you shared were hilarious!! Love it!

    • Yes for all the fall love! I had to drag hubby outside to get those pictures when there was a football game on he really wanted to watch 😉 we got a few good ones even if he wasn’t the most willing subject!

  2. Found you from the currently link-up! I love my planner and lists- I’m convinced I would not function without a daily to-do list haha! Love the pics of you and your hubby, I’m thinking I need to get some fall photos done with mine this year too!

    • Yes! What type of planner do you use? I am the queen of making lists, just not completing them ;). Those pics were our Christmas card pics in 2013, we are desperate for some updated ones! It’s always good to remember to capture different life stages 🙂 glad you found me!

  3. Those pics are so cute, and I would definitely include some with the pup since (s)he’s part of your life right now! I’m with you on the planner, I need to write everything down and love lists. I’ve been using one I bought last year from Paper Plum Designs and absolutely love the layout, both weekly and monthly views. There’s so much room to write! Good luck finding one that works for you!

  4. Ha, I’m the same way about planning/organization! I feel like I’m always on the hunt for a new planner… every year I think I can find a better one! Those photos are so cute, I hope you have fun on your upcoming photo shoot too. We really need to get family photos taken as well.

    • I have joined the planner community and there is no going back. There are truly endless options – I love it! Thank you, we like to goof around so we had fun with it 😉 I’m really looking forward to getting some update pics though!

  5. I wish fall would last forever too! It’s just the best season. I am a planner too. I write down EVERYTHING. I used to use Evernote for all of my blogging notes, but I had to switch to a regular notebook/planner because I just couldn’t handle not physically writing stuff down. Leggings are the best!
