Currently in October

It’s that time again, first Wednesday of the month, so it’s Currently with Anne of In Residence! I love this monthly link up to share current happenings based on the prompts. I will admit I had a little more trouble with the prompts than usual this month, but I came up with something for each! Here they are!

Currently I Am…

Arranging.…my Halloween decorations! I still need to take most of them out, but I found this adorable Halloween Unicorn at Target the other day, so he is already sitting out on one of my shelves at home.

Loving…Oliver’s school and how much he loves it. We had a Color Run fundraiser last Friday night and it was so much fun, you can tell just how much the staff cares about the kids and truly love what they do.

Embracing….Walking for exercise. As I mentioned yesterday I signed up for a program called 99 Walks. Each month you set a goal for how many miles you’d like to walk (they recommend at least 33 miles) and when you hit your goal, you get a piece of jewelry. I am highly motivated by rewards. I’m also motivated by others and you get access to an amazing community that is extremely supportive when you become a member. So, I’m all in. I’m going to get myself back into shape. No more excuses.

Purchasing…A Thred Up Goody box I curated for myself. At least I think I will. It’s still sitting in my cart waiting for me to pull the trigger. I don’t truly need anything right now, but I found a mustard colored cardigan that I’m hoping will work out and a few other things caught my eye too. With the Goody Box I like that you have the chance to try before you buy, so I think I’m going to go ahead and order it. I can always send stuff back.

Sharing...Photo a day Challenge pictures on Instagram. I have done these challenges with The Everyday Eye Candy project before and the October challenge looked like fun, so I decided to give it another go. It can be a fun way to meet new people and also to learn new things about each other!

There we have it! That is the latest from here! What’s currently going on in your world?

  1. How fun to have a color run fundraiser! We were supposed to have a family “fun run” for our school’s fundraiser but there were storms and it got cancelled. We ended up running around the indoor track at our gym just the three of us, which was pretty fun too 🙂 Also this 99 Walks program sounds really cool – how great to know yourself and how your motivation works, and to find a tool that works with that!

  2. I’m going to attempt to do the photo challenge also!
    i’m motivated by prizes and groups, the same as you. That’s why I think the Walktober at work will get my step count up. I’ve already decided I’m going to do 2000 more steps today than I did yesterday.
    I want to take a look at Thread Up. I’ll have to sit down at home and explore the site. 🙂

  3. I’m glad Ollie is loving his new school! Good luck with that walking challenge. I really need to find new ways to be more active. I’ve gained some weight and it’s always a struggle to lose, so I’m working on it.


  4. Oh, I love that walking for exercise challenge…. I should get J to do it. He’s been walking more, but maybe he needs some extra incentive! 🙂
