Currently November

November 1, 2015 8 Comments
I have been a very bad, bad blogger this last month.  I’m hoping with the start of the new month, comes new blogging goals that I can live up to.  I have missed all of you and I am so excited to share what I’m currently up to by linking up with the always fabulous, Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade!  Make sure to link back to her site to read more about other bloggers and what they’re currently up to this month!  So what am I currently up to you ask?!  Let’s find out!
Listening: I am listening to my newest guilty pleasure on Bravo, Ladies of London!  I have always loved British culture and this window into London life is everything I want out of a reality show.  Throw a few glamorous Americans and Brits into a room and watch the sparks fly. Yes, please!  Not to mention that my world-traveler of a brother is currently pit-stopped in London and have met my parents there for a quick visit.  I am so jealous that I can’t be with them so I’m trying to live vicariously through them and this show to get my British fix!
Loving: Lazy weekend mornings are just the best.  Throw in an extra hour of sleep and vegging on the couch and I’m a happy camper.  Even my dog Roger enjoyed a little extra shut-eye this morning.  So thankful for that!
Thinking: I have been having a difficult time trying to balance everything this year.  October was a crazy month and there are so many things I would like to do and accomplish but never seem to have the time.  My sweet friend, Diana from My Day In K, shared this quote a few weeks ago and I think it sums up perfectly how I have been feeling.  I have to remember that what is meant to happen, will happen.  Thanks Diana for the constant support and inspiration!
Wanting:  Halloween week 2015 was a doozy!  I wish I could say I survived and thrived but the truth of the matter is, I barely scraped by and came out of it with a terrible cold and cough.  I made it through the week but have been parked on the couch throughout the weekend, trying to get rid of this!
Needing: Sundays are usually for food shopping and prepping for the week ahead.  My couch has been calling my name and I have yet to be able to get out of its’ tight grip.  Instead of going to the grocery store,  I might trick myself and go to Target instead for food shopping and a little push the cart down the aisle therapy.  We shall see what happens!
Yummy: When it comes to Thanksgiving and favorite foods, I’m a sucker for the classics.  I can finish my mother’s green bean casserole in one sitting without batting an eye.  I won’t be with my family this year because I’ll be traveling to the hubby’s out in Buffalo, NY and I am so sad I won’t be eating my mom’s cooking.  I might just ask her to save some for me so I can indulge later!
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading what I’m currently up to!  I am looking forward to this month as a chance to reflect on all that I am thankful for and enjoy the little things in life.  I hope you all have a wonderful start to November!

    Glad you survived the crazy week! I think you deserve a lazy Sunday. Your Target grocery shopping plan sounds like a good one!

    Lazy weekends are the best. It is like our bodies know we need this rest! Don't stress over what needs to get done. Just take care of you!! Have a great one and feel better.

    I've been having a more difficult time balancing blogging, teaching and life in general things year too! I feel like I'm finally getting in the swing of things… so I'm hopeful! I've also had a stuffy nose this past week that I can't seem to get rid of! Everyone is getting sick at work (both teachers and kids) and I'm hoping I'm not next! I also need to go to the grocery store today but am having a hard time peeling myself out of bed! I love your Target idea! Too bad we don't have Target here πŸ™

    Thanks for the recommendation for Ladies of London – I'm almost ready for a new series to "listen" to! II love your "thinking" – I really needed to hear that now as all I want to do is create and blog, but I have this HUGE project to tackle first. I hope you feel much better very soon! Have a super week, Jen

    Friend! I hope you are feeling better!!! I love that quote! New start for November!

    Hi Jayme,
    Sorry you are dealing with a cough and cold. Hopefully some downtime over the weekend helped and you are feeling better. Gosh… can't wait for some Target therapy. We were in Florida a couple weeks ago and I nearly cried when I picked up a half gallon of milk for my son and saw how cheap it is. My husband thought something was wrong! I love that quote… I need a little of that right now too. So easy to worry too much. Hang in there! Hugs!
    Joya πŸ™‚

    I think the last week of October was rough for everybody! Hope you are feeling better!
