Currently and Small Goals


Discovering // Some new holiday music! The Pentatonix album is a favorite (Hallelujah is on repeat) and I love Kacey Musgraves new album. Holiday music is one of my absolute favorite parts of this time of year, so there's no shame in my starting early game

Celebrating // A few quiet weeks before Thanksgiving and the end of the year craziness kicks off!  We get a bonus day off tomorrow, and I'm planning on scrubbing the absolute life out of my apartment and slow-cooking squash soup.

Starting // Holiday shopping.  Makes me feel way less stressed to get it done earlier, plus I take gift-giving VERY seriously, so I need time to prep!

Wearing // This sweatshirt on repeat for ever, often with these boots and this vest

Googling // The weather in Aruba.  My mom's side of the family is traveling there for Thanksgiving, which is going to be amazing. I just ordered a couple bathing suits from here (more on that below) and am stocking up on sun screen and books

Goal Update

Commit to dressing up // Done!  I went as Wednesday Addams, which was fun! Most of the adults on campus recognized me, almost none of my students. Oh well.

Buy a new bathing suit // I snuck this into the last day of the month, because I used it as collateral for the next goal. I ordered two Kortni Jeane suits, which I'm hoping work well for me, but we'll see! I'll do a review later if they fit

Workout twice a week // Not only did I workout (20+ minutes twice a week) but I completed Tone it Up's 31 rep challenge every day but 2!  I found the 5 moves/31 reps each thing to work really well for me, so I'm going to keep that up moving forward.

Get off campus // Done! Had a lovely afternoon exploring Lenox and Great Barrington, both of which are delightful

Classic movies // Not even close. Totally forgot it was a goal. Mulligan

November Goals
Watch two classic movies // I will do this!

Read 2 books // My reading stack has been a little neglected over the last few months, and I really need to get back to it!  I just started Alison Weir's book on Elizabeth I and am enjoying it!

Track calories every day up until Aruba // There's a 0 percent chance I track calories on vacation, but I'd like to keep an eye on things until then (#bikinibody)

Buy no clothing // As I mentioned in my budget, I'm feeling pretty good about my closet at this point, and unless I find myself needing something specific/replacement, I'd like to focus my budget on other things

Vote // Please dear lord, let us just vote and move on from the election. I've been listening to Hamilton on repeat to remind me what America is supposed to be like.


  1. Ooooh, so jealous of Aruba! And what a fun idea to do a family trip at Thanksgiving. We've tried it at Christmas before, but that's just such a crazy time of year already that it would be fun to do Thanksgiving. Enjoy that bonus day off - jealous of that too!

  2. Aruba over Thanksgiving sounds amazing! I haven't listened to it yet, but She & Him came out with a new holiday album. I liked their last one.

  3. oh i love that you include goals with your currently list! also i love your 101 in 1001 list - i have one too but you're totally killing yours. <3 and that harry potter sweatshirt!!!!!!
