Hooray! We’re talkin’ New Beginnings today, with Weekly Wishes!
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, friends! I hope you all had a magnificent weekend and that you’re holiday week is shaping up to be a good one. Our weekend was really great, mainly because it was so low-key. I had shared what our plans were for the weekend on Friday, and we pretty much stuck to those plans.
Saturday, Emmett slept in until almost 8 (I was up before him), we had breakfast, watched Bob the Builder and played. When Seamus went to the gym, Emmett and I went outside to play, it was chilly and windy but it was good to get outside and get some fresh air. I got some fantastic pictures of Emmett, that I’ll eventually share, but sadly our fun time ended with some big tears. We were chasing each other around the back yard and Emmett went out onto the driveway, I was going after him to get him back on the grass and he tripped and bonked his head pretty hard. He cried for a good long while, but after some hugs and kisses he was back to himself, with just an added lump 🙁
Once Seamus was home, I went had my hair cut and styled. You might recall that I was struggling to decide whether to cut my hair short again, or allow it to continue growing out. Well, I decided to cut it. I’ve really enjoyed having it short and it is SO much easier to maintain, so I went with it and I’m really happy I did. We ended our night at Frank’s Sunny Italy, it is my FAVORITE Italian food place in the area. In my opinion, there isn’t a single other Italian restaurant in (over) 50 miles that compares. Yummy!!
Sunday, was definitely an easy day. Emmett slept later again, and I was up before him again and then we just lounged around the house and eventually took showers. We did get to Trader Joe’s for some grocery shopping, and other odds and ends. So, I love Wegmans, but TJs is proving to be cheaper as far as weekly grocery shopping goes, it’s worth the 20 minute drive just to get there. The rest of the day was spent finishing up laundry, making lunches and prepping for the week and relaxing as a family. Though, Emmett isn’t much of a relaxer, he prefers to be on the go CONSTANTLY! 😉
This week’s theme for Weekly Wishes is New Beginnings. I took the picture above on Saturday, when Emmett and I were playing. I chose it because it was snowing, and it was the first time it was snowing AND sticking this year. Our chair is still out from the Summer, so it is showing the end of Summer/Fall and the beginnings of Winter.
And now… Weekly Wishes!
I had three goals last week, the first was to cut all gluten out of my breakfast. How did I do? Awesome! I did so so great! I took eggs and some chopped up avocado all week and only had an English muffin on Saturday morning with my eggs. I’m really pleased with myself.
Next was to do one load of laundry a night. I wasn’t perfect with this one, but I did do laundry a couple of times throughout the week, so I’ll take it as a win!
Third, was to take two walks. I did it! I did it!
This Week’s Goals:
- Get an oil change. I need to do this before we head out to the in-laws on Thursday. It will likely happen Wednesday on lunch, but it NEEDS to get done!
- Not eat like a glutton on Thanksgiving. I want to enjoy the variety of foods that are only around this time of year, but I do not want to pig out to the point that I feel disgusting, then I just don’t enjoy my time.
That’s it, those are my two goals for the week, hopefully they’ll set me up for another successful next week.
