Happy Weekly Wishes – Hobbies!
Weekly Wishes is a link-up started by Melyssa from The Nectar Collective. It is a place where you can post and share you wishes and goals for the week ahead on your blog, Facebook page, Twitter account, etc and then link it up on Melyssa’s blog. I LOVE doing this because it holds me accountable for the week ahead. I’ve shared my goals with the world (through my blog) and I know people will read and wonder whether I stuck to my goals. It definitely keeps me honest!
Happy Monday, all! We had a pretty good weekend in the Doodah household, you can read all about it here. I’m feeling really good this Monday morning, not dreading anything that this week might bring. I’m feeling positive and ready to take on the week’s ups and (of course) downs. Truly, I just hope there are more ups! 😉
This week’s Weekly Wishes theme is “hobbies.” Many of you may not know this, but I have an Etsy jewelry shop. Sadly I’ve had my shop closed since I went into the hospital to have Emmett, I just didn’t have the time to make anything new or to keep up with any orders that might have come in. And then around August, when I found that I had a little more time to work on items for my shop, I decided that I wanted to re-brand myself, which is where I am right now. I’m having a new Etsy banner designed for my shop and will then reopen! I’m super excited! Anyhoo – since this week’s theme is hobbies, I thought I’d share a picture of one of my favorite pairs of earrings that I created. I look forward to sharing the reopening of my store, once it happens.
And now, Weekly Wishes!
Last week I decided that I would keep it simple and only give myself two wishes. I think I was feeling overwhelmed with everything and giving myself so many goals to worry about completing was getting to me. In the end, giving myself two goals had a much better success rate!
My first goal from last week was to move my body. Admittedly, I did not do any super sweat sessions, but after reading Erika’s post last week talking about how it’s not so much how you move your body, but that you do it, I realized that even light walks with Emmett are good things. I realize with walks I likely won’t lose any weight but at least I’m doing something and not just being stagnant.
My second goal was to continue to do one load of laundry a night. Another success! Even with Emmett being sick I made sure to take a load of laundry down almost every night. This, once again, left me with only a few loads to do on Sunday, which leaves me more time with my two favorite guys!
This Week’s Goals:
- Do one load of laundry a night. I’m sticking with it! It makes my life SO much better and I don’t want that to change.
- Finish up Everyday Happy. Everyday Happy has ended but I’m still a bit behind, I want to finish off with a BANG!
- Move my body! Another repeat from last week (and the week before and the week before), it’s a good one and a good one for me.
There you have it, my wishes for the week ahead.

Good luck with getting your new Etsy shop up and running. I know what you mean about getting up and moving around. I just bought a Fitbit so that I can monitor my progress & I think it will really motivate me.
I love my FitBit! I actually need a new battery for it and keep forgetting to buy one. You just reminded me, so now I’ve added it to my shopping list. Thanks!! I’m glad you stopped by, Lisa!
I like the idea of doing one load of laundry a night!! That seems like an attainable, effective way of getting it done to me 🙂 if only you could see the piles I have right now in my living room…
Hi Kayli! You should totally do it. It has made my weekends so much more enjoyable, not to mention that my closet is never hurting because things are always clean. Thanks for visiting!!
