Currently (January Edition)

Reading: I'm reading Fates and Furies. It isn't a fast book but so far I'm liking it.

Planning: My debt repayment plan. I've set up my repayment plan for all of 2016. If everything goes as planned, I will pay off 6 debts by 2017.

Watching: Fixer Upper. I want to be Joann and I want to be married to Chip. Everything they touch turns to gold and those kids are so stinkin' cute.

Trying: To get organized and rid myself of anything that no longer is needed. My space is limited yet I'll hold onto some pretty random things. Now if I could only get into those totes in the shed.

Cooking: Bean cakes. Every had them? It is just pinto beans, flour, and water. Mix it up and fry them up. It's what I make with leftover pinto beans. So good.

Eating: Salad. Isn't everyone eating more lettuce right now? I've found this Dole Caesar Vinaigrette dressing that I'm in love with right now.

Drinking: More water. I'm seriously trying.

Thinking: My friends are going to the horse races for our friend Amy's birthday and I can't decide if I'm gonna go. It's an overnight trip and will be an easy $200. I know I should use that money toward my debt so I can't decide.

Pinning: 2016/New Year's/Goals/Organization. I have a board just for 2016. I'm trying to pin everything I'll need to succeed this year. If you would like to follow me on Pinterest click here.

Crafting: My binder for 2016.

Going: Back to work today. I'm so glad I love my job!

Loving: All my wonderful gifts I received from Santa. My Mama really does spoil me.

Dreaming: A three year old that does whine so much (can't you tell that's a dream)

Feeling: Hopefully about the new year.

Listening: Chris Stapleton

Celebrating: Football. I'm trying to soak it all in this month. It feels like such an empty void once football is over for the season.

Improving: My eating habits, my steps taken each day, and my water intake. Ah, the wonderfulness of a new year. At least collectively we are all healthier for one month.

I'm going to try and keep this up each month and I'm already excited to see where I'm going to be in a month.

Happy New Year!


  1. This list is such a great idea! There's so much that I would like to get done in 2016 so I think I will follow in your footsteps and figure out things that I would like changed this coming year.

  2. It seems like you have some great goals for the new year!

  3. I love that your goals are a mix of grown up responsibilities and fun :) It feels so good to get things paid off and take care of yourself. I love Chip and JoAnna and wish they'd come fix up a house in Indiana for me. We're clinging to NFL playoffs right now since that's the last big of football left for the month.

  4. I love this approach! It sounds like you are making progress already! I hope hope 2016 is wonderful for you!

  5. Oh, I love this list! And yes. There is a void when football is done. Our Vikings just had an ugly loss yesterday and now I have to figure out who I want to go to the super bowl. Once the super bowl is over then I'm ready for baseball season. Thank you for sharing at #mommymeetupmondays!
