What I’m Currently Up To.. vol. 1

Starting — I am starting many things! I am starting a weight loss challenge, I am starting to read many more books for my 2018 goal! I am starting to feel happier each day! I’m starting to feel more at home here in our new place, though I do miss my family dearly!!! I’m also starting this new blog. I’ll be keeping my family names private from here on out by using their first initial only! I know some people know their names already but I figure I would start out by doing that!

Hoping — I am hoping for some sort of miracle to lose weight that I’ve been carrying around for about 3 years now. I am hoping that Brady and I will grow closer in happiness and I hope that this year turns out really well for us :) We are also hoping to start Dave Ramsey’s FPU this year and start working on tackling our debt!

Scheduling — You can see in the photo above, this is my weekly spread for the first week of January. I don’t have many things written in it yet but I will fill it in as it comes! I love planner stickers, washi tape, and just all things planner and bullet journaling. I’ll be scheduling doctor appointments, dentist appointments and trips to visit home! Also, hopefully some vacations this year!!

Reading — My reading goal for 2018 is 20 books. BUT I’ve almost reached 20 books in 2017 ALONE!!! So I’m hoping for maybe 30 books this year. It’s going to be so great! I’ll have a lot of more time this year.

Playing — oh my gosh. Brady and I LOVE playing the Bob Ross board game. It’s seriously SO fun!! We also love playing Ticket to Ride and Sushi Go! :) We’re a board game kind of family. I’m also listening to Taylor Swift’s new album… it’s growing on me quickly. She’s a queen and everything she does is solid!


These are just a few things that I’m currently up to, but I know there will be more going on this month! Hopefully I’ll be able to create a habit of exercise and eating better foods than what I am right now.

What are you currently up to?

    Good luck on your reading goals! I really need to exercise more too. I’m doing okay with eating well but it can be tough sometimes – I really need to find some new recipes that I love.

    Oh man, I’m a planner-a-holic! I use a Happy Planner, but I have an Erin Condren that I use as a budget and finance tracker. Your layout is so pretty!

    Good luck on tackling the debt! That’s one of our big focuses this year too, and I’m already a smidge stressed out about what a journey it’s going to be!

      I like my Erin Condren but I’m not like… IN LOVE with this layout, I think I might do hourly next year but we’ll see. Haha, I just ordered a deluxe monthly from her for budgeting and finance.. I’m excited!! :)
