The Sunday Currently v. 9 + Weekly Wishes

I’ve finally had a minute to sit down and write for the blog! This past month has been (from 15th-15th) has been very busy– not that I’m not busy all the time, but I’ve been working more trying to tie up loose ends before the end of this year. What I cannot believe is that this year is almost over!

Here’s what else I’ve currently been doing::

Reading:: From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweileryes, it’s a children’s novel, but it makes me nostalgic for New York City and the Met. I’ve been anxious to go back and visit these past few months. It’s been too long! 
Writing:: about what I consider unexpected capsule wardrobe benefits. Among less laundry, I’ve found several more. Look for that later this week.
Listening:: To Chopped. The recent Netflix update has been awesome. There are Food Network shows and HGTV shows on it now, some of my favorites too that I have missed this past year of being unplugged.
Smelling:: tomatoes from dinner. We warmed up some stew. It’s perfect for this chilly weather.
Wishing:: that we lived closer to town sometimes. The convenience is something I miss!
Hoping:: this week flies by. And the next one, since we’re headed to Disney in 13 days!
Wearing:: an oversized tee and sweatpants. It’s my Sunday uniform while I’m at home.
Loving:: the chilly weather. Southern winters are super mild and our winter highs are in the 40s, but I always feel so much better health-wise the colder the weather gets. My sister is the complete opposite.
Wanting:: one day to relax. Not worry about work. Not worry about the home or cooking. Hopefully one of the days off that’s coming up I’ll be able to enjoy that way. 
Needing:: a better cleaning schedule. For the past four weekends, we’ve had company at least one day if not both and I’m frantic trying to tidy up until they arrive, but I love enjoying a clean and tidy house all week. 
Feeling:: quite tired for it to only be 8:30 PM. When it gets dark so early, I can’t help but want to go to bed much earlier.
Clicking this past month:: (hang in there, I’ve been reading a lot) 

My Sunday posts will also be a place where I’m going to set some goals to focus my wee. I’ll be linking up with Weekly Wishes, a link up hosted by Melyssa of The Nectar Collective
Revisiting my last goals::

  • I’ve been so good about not stopping at Starbucks, and our bi-weekly budget shows the difference. 
  • I finalized my capsule a month ago and have been enjoying remixing the pieces as you can see here and here.
  • Posting on the blog is still something I need to have a better schedule. Between work picking up through the end of the year and the blog growing a little more, I need to balance them better.
  • Our gluten free dinner went very well! And Corey said that he enjoyed it and he’s Mr. Gluten himself.

Goals this week/month::

  • Carrying over the blog post schedule balance, especially since I took it slow the past two weeks.
  • Empty/use five beauty products. Getting both an ipsy and Birchbox, I have samples piling up. Some of these are fabulous products and I want to completely use five of them a month. 
  • Project life some of our recent Disney trips. I’m about a year behind on these and I don’t want to miss the memories in the years to come.
  • Read more books secularly. I used to ravenously devour books and I can name two I’ve read this year. It’s disappointing.
That’s it for currently and my goals for the week. How was your week? Looking forward to anything?

  1. I have been loving that Gilmore Girls is finally at my disposal, to relive and enjoy and maybe binge, a little.

    I love that book too – still one of my favorites and the best thing I read in 6th grade.

    Chic on the Cheap

  2. i love comments, but admit i wanna turn them off when i see the same comment over and over–meaning they just commented on the first or last pic they saw. it's frustrating.

  3. We've had a couple of snow days here so I've been in t-shirt and sweatpants A LOT lately! I hope you get a day home to relax soon. I totally understand having a lot to finish up – I'm racing to get stuff done before the baby gets here!

  4. The baby!!! I'm so stinking excited for you! Like a crazy amount. Also I wish for just a little bit of snow. Just to shut things down for a day. I love snow days.

  5. Wasn't it so good?! I started looking at her other novels and I remember also reading The View from Saturday. I have a hankering to read them all again.

    Great minds love Gilmores. 🙂

  6. Sometimes I am totally guilty of doing that, especially if I'm behind on my blog reading, but I appreciate all the meaningful comments I get and those are what's worth it to me.

  7. I love these 'currently' posts. Currently, I am reading 'Eat, Pray, Love' and listening to rain fall. It's one of my favourite sounds in the whole world. 🙂

  8. Wait. What? Disney again so soon? I'm crazy jealous!
    Did you see that Project Life has an app now? It's pretty great for being able to whip out those iPhone photos into a scrapbook page.
