Currently: November 2017


realizing: Oh, my goodness! It’s November today! I really feel as though the year just began and here it is almost over. Christmas will be here in just a few weeks and I’m realizing I’ve let a lot slip by this year. So now is the time to start planning for 2018!


stirring: I think I’ll be stirring up these muffins again really soon. The weather is getting cooler and my hubby loves some coffee in the evening with a little sweetness. Ok, the truth is so do I! You can find the recipe and original post here


Coffee Crumb Muffins

appreciating: I’m trying to appreciate my life and family. I’m especially thankful for my husband. Why? Lots of reasons but the simplest one is that he makes me coffee every morning. I know you are probably thinking that he merely flips the switch to “ON” but not so my friends. We use an old school stove top percolator. Best coffee ever and best coffee brewer ever. It’s the little things. Oh, and the other day he was vacuuming…sexy man!

investigating: I’m up to my eyeballs in trying to find the perfect planner. What I mean by perfect is really perfect! Sometimes I agonize over making the “right” or “best” decision even on the little things. I’ve Googled and read lots of review but I think I finally found the “perfect” or “perfect for me” planner. Introducing the Start Planner – Hustle Edition. You can check it out here.



following: Lately, I’ve been trying to follow a few more blogs and that entails reading more posts. Again, I’m up to my eyeballs but I really desire to connect with others and be diligent to follow through but sometimes I’m more ambitious in my mind than what I can actually accomplish in real life.

So what are you Currently up to?

Be blessed! ~ Carrie

Linking up with Anne in Residence and Julie of A Hopeful Hood for this month’s Currently.


  • I would totally decorate for Cmas today if husband wouldn't kill me. It's even snowing!
  • I'm planner obsessed and have been feeling tired of my current one...totally going to check out Hustle right now!

    I'm all about connecting with other bloggers, but it can be tough to do sometimes. We only have so much time! It's crazy that we're almost to Christmas. Great time of the year though. And I LOVE planners; glad you found the perfect one for you. -Lauren
  • I love my coffee in my little Italian moka (which is a stove top percolator)! It makes great coffee! I’m with you: I’m trying to appreciate and focus on relationships as well!
  • Aww, your answers for "appreciating" are so sweet! Makes me feel like I shoulda gone deeper than "appreciating fall scarves" hahaha. :)
  • Hendrik loves muffins AND helping me bake, so now that our kitchen is operational again, we might have to try out that recipe! And I love your example of's the littlest acts that make up a marriage, sometimes, isn't it? Around here it's that my husband always deals with the dog at the end of the day so that I can climb into bed first :)
  • I told my husband that he has never looked sexier than when he cleaned the bathroom! Ha!! I can't believe how close we are to 2018. It always flies by, doesn't it?
  • Ooh I'm going to go check out that muffin recipe--those sound so good. Finding a new planner is always such a hard (but fun!) decision. I've had a bullet journal this year and may do that again next year too but I'm not 100% sure yet.
