Currently | January 2016

Hello 2016! It's a new year and a new month, so it's time for another installment of Currently. I love these posts hosted by Gold & Bloom every month...they're such a fun way to set the mood for and really jump into a new month. Here are January's prompts:
Resolving // I don't know about you, but I have never made a New Year's resolution that stuck. I think it's great to have something in mind to really kick off the year on the right foot, but small goals seem to work best for me, rather than a huge goal that's near impossible to see results in the near future. I'm planning a post for some of my 2016 goals later in the week that I'm hoping will help keep me accountable!

Reading // We're *hoping* to potentially buy our first home this year! So with that in mind, I'm reading up on all kinds of blogs and magazines for home inspiration. Some of my favorites are Better Homes & Gardens, Southern Living, Our Fifth House, The Shabby Creek Cottage, Lolly Jane, and Tatertots & Jello

Also, Preston and I have watched through every HGTV/Home makeover/House hunting show there is on Netflix. So many ideas, but don't tell me it doesn't frustrate you when these people aren't satisfied with a budget of $1,000,000! Seriously?! You're buying an island! How picky can you be?!

Organizing // New year, new planner...amirite? I love a new planner; opening up that first, crisp page and filling in all the fun to-do's of the future. I'm a daydreamer for life so it's always a fun way for me to visualize what I'm looking forward to most and what I want to get done in the week/month/year to come. This super cute planner is from TJ Maxx and is so similar to a Day Designer but it was less than $10!
Loving // I don't know if I can narrow my 'loves' down to just one thing....there's so much to be joyous about in 2016! My baby girl is turning ONE, I'm going to give birth to a sweet baby boy in the spring, vacation, potential home buying, and more....I'm just in love with life as a whole right now and it couldn't be better!

I post too many yummy treats on instagram (find me @faithandfashionblog !)
Craving // In case it wasn't obvious enough....I'm pregnant! And therefore craving everything all the time! My most prominent cravings have seemed to be white chocolate milkshakes from Steak n Shake, french fries, and fruity candies like Sour Patch Kids and Skittles. That second trimester hunger is no joke, and I totally let myself binge through the holidays. Now that it's January, I'm getting on a healthier foot--no more sugary drinks, pregnancy-approved workouts (mostly arms and legs), and healthier snack options (or no snacking at all!). I refuse to gain a ton of weight just because I'm pregnant, and I am determined to get back in shape enough to rock a gorgeous dress to my brother's wedding in July (which will be approx. 2-3 months postpartum)!


Thanks for joining me in the first Currently of 2016! I am so excited to share my love of faith, fashion, and family here with ya'll in this new year!
