Happy Weekly Wishes – Warmth!
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!
It’s Monday again, can you believe that? It’s so cliche, but I really can’t. It literally seems like I had just woken up on Friday and now it’s Monday again. Oh well, such is life!
We had a really awesome weekend!
Saturday, we had big BIG plans to get Emmett’s haircut. A few weeks back when I had been anticipating his haircut I had done some research on local places that cut children’s hair. I wanted someone that was familiar with how a toddler is and the fact that they don’t sit still. When you’re working with scissors, going to a salon that has only worked on adults or older children, just wouldn’t work. We ended up at Kiddie Cuts & More and the stylist was fantastic! She did a really fantastic job, with Emmett and his hair.
Sunday was filled with chores and family time! Emmett decided he wanted to get up early (because of daylight savings time) and was up at 4:30. Thankfully he dozed off for another 30 minutes or so and then woke up for good around 5. Our bodies thought it was 6, but it was till painful on a Sunday. The only positive of getting up that early, was that I got a ton of stuff done, all of my weekly chores were complete by the time 5 o’clock rolled around and that’s a beautiful thing! Since chores were done early, Emmett and I got to go out on a nice chilly walk to Starbucks for my first red cup! My husband thinks I’m silly because I get so excited for a cardboard cup, but I really truly love red cup season. 🙂
The theme this week for Weekly Wishes is warmth. There a million pictures I could have chosen that showed or signified warmth to me, but I went with my coffee from yesterday. I am a lover of Starbucks, through and through, their coffee just makes me happy. It has the ability to warm me from within as I take those first few sips of hot coffee. Mmmm… You’ll almost always find me drinking a Venti Americano with 2 pumps of vanilla and a splash of milk. There a few other sweeter drinks that I like from Starbucks, but I’ll usually avoid those except for on special occasions, because of the calorie count on all of them.
Now onto this week’s Weekly Wishes – Warmth
Fair warning – I did not do well with my wishes for the week. I just fell flat…
The first goal from last week was to finish my home ‘to-do’ list. I still haven’t completed it and I have absolutely zero excuses as for why, I just didn’t do it. Ugh.
Next up, was getting back into my class Everyday Happy. Once again, I just fell flat here. I am ready, willing and able to work on it, but it always seems to come secondary to one of the other many things that I “need” to complete. I need to stop that and make it a priority. I really liked where the class was going and was learning a lot about myself through it.
Of course, I had workout as one of my goals. And sadly, I once again did not complete this goal. I walked a couple of times but nothing more. I don’t even have an excuse.
I had planned to do a load of wash every night. I didn’t fail completely on this one. I did laundry twice during the week which still knocked down the amount of loads I needed to do on Sunday. I’m pleased with that!
Finally, I planned to work on some of the draft blog posts I have. I didn’t get to this one, I just didn’t have time. Any time I was at my computer to blog, I was working on a post for the current day and unfortunately wasn’t able to get further ahead.
This week’s goals:
This week I’m keeping it simple, only two goals. I am honestly wondering if the reason that I am struggling so much with meeting the goals I make, is because I’m putting too much pressure on myself with too many goals. So we’ll try a lesser amount and see how that goes.
- Move my body! I need to. My mood has been pretty great the last week, positive and not so much on the dark side, but I would absolutely still feel better if I broke a sweat. I’d like to move and sweat 4 times this week.
- Do a load of laundry every night. This goal truly makes my life SO much easier and allows for much more family time on Sundays, when I only have to do 2 or 3 loads versus 7 or 8. Plus it’s not a difficult one. I come home, throw a load in right after work and then throw it in the drier after Emmett’s bath. I typically will fold it the next day when I go put the next load in. I have a pretty easy cycle, just need to stick with it.
Alrighty folks, that’s it for this week. Here’s hoping a smaller list will help make me feel more successful with my wishes and less like a failure.
