Currently...

While I'm Waiting...currently
I'm a little late to the game but I recently came across Jenna and Anne's monthly link-up on what you are currently up to (they even provide the prompts!).  How fun is that?! And since I normally fill you in on what I'm waiting on...I thought I would change things up occasionally and tell you what I'm currently up to!  :)  Check out Gold & Bloom and In Residence and link up today!

resolving:  Earlier this week I shared my one little word for 2016.  No resolutions, just vowing to appreciate the little things!

reading:  I just finished The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo.  I have heard about this book for a while but could think of so many reasons why I didn't think it applied to me.  Well, let me just tell you I was SO wrong!

organizing:  Haha!  See above!  I'm organizing anything that's not nailed down!  Just kidding!  I'm following along with the 26 week challenge and have started with my clothes.  Girls - I was astounded/shocked/embarrassed at how much stuff I have.  Week by week I'll be sharing my progress.  Would love to have you share this journey with me.  I know I'm going to hit a point where I need some encouragement to keep going!

loving:  I've BEN ;) waiting since the end of last season for The Bachelor to start up again.  I've watched most of the seasons but must admit, none could compare to Sean and Catherine's season.  When I read Sean's post Monday before the season opener, I knew this season might just be my second favorite!

craving:  Now that Christmas is over, I really need winter to end. :)  I definitely am craving summertime!  I try really hard not to rush through seasons in my life but this Texas girl doesn't like to be cold!

What are you currently up to?
Hope you have a fabulous day!  Gig 'em and God bless!

I would love to have you link up with the Waiting on...Wednesday link-up - a place where you can link up what you are waiting on, going through, making, anything - as long as it's family-friendly!  :)  It's open through Saturday!

    1. The Currently posts have been on my radar for a while now but I usually forget about them till it's too late. They are really fun to put together! Girl, my house is BAD! But, I swear, it's changing!!! It might take a while but there WILL be a change! We can do this!

  11. I love the uniqueness of your "one word" of the year and message that is the driving force for your goals- I have never seen that before, and I think it is a great idea-interesting.

    1. Thank you so much! It's been fun seeing how many times the word ordinary has come up - and then finding ways to make it extra ordinary! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you'll visit again!

  12. I'm totally with you on craving summer time! I'd even be good with Spring! Anything but this frigidness. And I'm a huge fan of this season with Ben, too! What a sweet guy :) This is a great post idea!

    Thanks for joining us on the Alder Collective! Pinning, and we hope to see you again this week!

    1. I've only watched 1/2 of the first episode but I have it DVRed. I'm silly - I only want to watch it when I can sit uninterrupted for the entire show! :) Thanks for your encouragement - much appreciated! Hope you are having a great evening!

  18. Thanks for linking up and sharing the love! I haven't read The Life Changing Magic...but I just ordered her newest book! I've heard that it expands on what she wrote in the first one so we'll see if I decide to go back and read that one but I definitely need some more organization in my home life! I love your word for 2016! Mine is Growth.
