Before I started writing this post I looked back at some of my past Weekly Wishes posts and I realized that I have fairly un-eventful weekends! Every monday I start out with the same thing… by saying that I didn't do much this weekend. Haha, I definitely think that this has a lot to do with Nick working weekends since he is in retail. I don't mind because it means that I have tons of time to do what I want to do… which usually means I sleep in, hang out at home, take the pups for walks and maybe venture out to do some grocery shopping. It's "boring" but it's just the relaxation I need after the busy week.
But anyway, I am linking up with Melyssa this week for another weekly wishes!
Last week I wanted to cut out bread, start on a new project, and not shop. Can we just call this week a wash? Okay, good. I started strong and didn't eat any bread until Thursday but then the boss's boss came into town and took us out to eat at a restaurant that is known for their delicious rolls. I caved in and ate one. Oh well.
I did well on not shopping aimlessly, so I guess that is half the battle. I didn't go into Target and walk around aimlessly, in fact I don't think I went to Target at all this week! I call that a success. What I did do is buy a sweater from Madewell. In my defense there was an extra 30% off sale, sale. And this was a sweater that I had had my eye on since December. And I gave Nick the same story when he gave me "the raised eyebrow" while asking… "another sweater?" Yes babe, but it's from Madewell so it's not just a sweater.
The project got pushed to the side but I did do some more brainstorming so that must count for something, right?
But it's a new week and I have a new set of goals…
- Take some time to plan out trips I want to take this year. This year feels like the year of travel, doesn't it? It does to me! I want to discover some new places and take some big travel leaps. And this is going to be the year that I finally take a trip abroad. I don't know where I want to go for sure, besides everywhere.
- Do something by myself. This was on my list a few weeks ago but it's making the list again because I didn't do it. I do most things by myself during the week since Nick has weird hours but those are just normal things. I want to do something bigger, on my own. Again, I don't know what I want to do, but I want to get out there.
- Go running. I love running, I just have to make myself do it. Is that weird? I don't like the build up to it but once I'm out there I love it. I'm going to push myself this week to get out there and go!
What trips have you taken that you'd recommend? What are your wishes this week?
