Hall Around Texas: Currently January 2018

It's so hard to believe that it's already 2018. I'm still wondering 2017 flew by so fast? But, alas, I am welcoming twenty eighteen with big wide open arms. I am so excited to see what kind of adventures this new year will bring my sweet little family! Joining in with Anne in Residence for a little currently...

s t a r t i n g | to get my motivation for blogging back! I am feeling so refreshed with the New Year and I'm ready to tackle all the things. Did anyone else get excited that the new year started on a Monday? No? Just me? It's the little things! I will be sharing my goals for 2018 soon on the blog. Or at least I hope to. I have so much to catch up on, but I am feeling so inspired lately. I've been jotting things down in a journal and in the notes app on my phone and I can't wait to get it all out! I am also ready to start de-cluttering our home. I could not sleep last night because I was so anxious for the day to come so that I could clean and organize my house. Who am I?

h o p i n g |  for so many things, but mostly that this year is a good one! I hope that I can keep my focus and knock these goals out of the ballpark! I also hope that in all things I bring Glory to God and that I can be a Godly example for Mason.

s c h e d u l i n g | blog posts like whoa!! Told ya I'm feeling motivated. I'm on my way to being organized and having things/dates laid out.

r e a d i n g |  I mentioned above that I will be sharing my 2018 goals soon, but among those is to read the Bible. Like the whole thing. All the way through. I've read so many different pieces of the Bible, but I want to intentionally read it through. I'm using the YouVersion/Bible app's plan "The Entire Bible in a Year". I hope to finish it sooner than a year, though.

p l a y i n g | I go through spurts of playing games on my phone and then I'll randomly delete them all. However, over the holidays I had so much down-time so I added a few game apps. Lately I am loving Wheel of Fortune and Yahtzee! #oldladystatus As for music, still playing my beloved Lauren Daigle pandora!! It's my favorite and I've fine tuned it just perfectly. When I am in the mood for something other than Christian music it's usually Imagine Dragons that I turn to! I am really feeling their music lately.

So tell me, what are you starting, hoping, scheduling, reading or playing right now?


  1. Oh my goodness games on my phone. Now that’s a blast from the past! Haha!

  2. Love this and I am just getting back into blogging after a nice rejuvenating break :). I love to play Wheel of Fortune against the TV when its on HA! xoxo ERIN

  3. So nice to have a new year to inspire us to make new goals!

  4. I was excited about a Monday new year too!! Extra extra fresh start, yay!

  5. So how did you find your mojo because mine is nowhere in sight.... especially this time of the year when I feel like there is SO little that I actually wan to blog about.

  6. You’re so organized!!! Can’t wait to see all the blog posts roll through. Wishing your family tons of happiness this hear!

  7. I hope we can all accomplish most - if not all - of our goals this year! And go you for scheduling ahead on the blog - I need to get that going again.


  8. Haha it is nice and tidy that the new year started on a Monday, isn't it? I'm ready to clean out and de-clutter after the holidays too. Thanks for linking up :)

  9. Send some motivation my way please! I need to write a bunch of my posts out early. Love all the goals for this year.

  10. I'm scheduling lots of blog posts right now too! Now if only I could find the time to write them... :)

  11. I'm looking forward to seeing what's new on your blog. Happy New Year!

  12. First of all, I am loving the new look of your blog! It's so fresh-perfect for he new year. I'm feeling the same way. I am completely in love with and obsessing over the new year. I love the clean start and new goals. It really lights something inside of me.

    I really want to read my Bible all the way through, too. I may have to try the You Version plan!

    When it comes to games, I am obsessed with Tetris forever. I'll add and delete other games, too but Tetris is my "go to" game. I've been playing for well over a year and never would dream of deleting it. Other than that, I get tired of games pretty quick.

    Happy New Year sweet friend! I hope this year holds so much happiness and so many blessings for you and your family!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
