Reading... The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines. I read it cover to cover last night. LOVED.

Playing...  Podcasts. I just discovered them recently (thanks Melissa). My favorite right now is The Popcast

Watching... NCIS New Orleans. Full on addicted y'all. Praise hands for CBS All Access.

Trying...  to get back in the swing of things. Tackled emails for an hour this morning and have gotten everything pretty much organized again. Does anyone else feel like deep cleaning and organizing after being sick?

Cooking... nothing, lately. Unless heating up Cambell's Chicken and Stars counts?

Eating... read food again. Sort of. I've been living off of yogurt and mashed potatoes and soup for about a week. I had a hamburger today! 

Drinking... Water!!

Calling... nobody. I hate talking on the phone (do I post this every month?)

Texting... C. I screen shot memes and send them to him throughout the day. 

Pinning...  recipes and home decor. Neither of which I'll actually be using anytime soon. 

Going... to a new Bible study tonight. Entrusted by Beth Moore. Yay!!

Loving...  the cooler temperatures. I mean, not today because it's still in the 90's, but tomorrow is supposed to be in the 70's!!! Wohoo.

Discovering... lot's of new Instagram accounts. I'll be sharing some of those on Friday!

Thinking...  of ordering a FabFitFun box. I don't subscribe to any boxes (yet)...and this one looks fun. Do y'all get these?

Feeling... better!! I've been battling strep for the last week...but I'm on the mend, finally!

Hoping... to get back to working out tomorrow. I actually miss it. Who am I?

Listening (to)... Daphne snoring. NCIS NOLA on Netflix. 

Celebrating... a 4.4 pound loss last week!!! Finally going in the right direction. 

Smelling...  nail polish. I just painted my nails with this polish

Ordering... Nothing right now. I have SO many things I want to order. Workout clothes (because I work out now...HA!), Christmas gifts, books, new clothes for our vacation. But, I'm also trying to be smart with our money. It's a constant struggle. 

Thanking...  C for taking such good care of me. He's such a good provider and friend. Even last night, I came home to see the new Magnolia book in our room. He thought it would be a nice surprise and he was right!!

Considering... the envelope system. We did it for a while when we first got married and took Financial Peace University at church. But, we have gotten WAY off track. I think it would be beneficial to get back on that. I just re-read Victoria's blog post to get me motivated. 

Starting...  to get excited for my first 5k next month. I don't know if I'll actually be running any of it...I may walk the whole thing...but I am pumped to complete it. Even if I'm the last one across the line!

Finishing...  up our costumes for a wedding Halloween weekend. I haven't dressed up for Halloween in FOREVER. We are totally winging it...but I think it will be cute. Pictures to follow. 


  1. Let me know if you order the fit box and I cannot wait to see pictures from net weekend!

  2. I am just so proud of you! That is all! :)

  3. Killing it with that weight loss!!! & isn't the magnolia book so easy and fun to read?! XO
