Weekly Wishes

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…
  1. 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.  
  2. 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.
  3. 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? 


  1. Yes, it's a good year to travel and planning trips are fun too! I am looking forward to where you will go this year! Good luck!

  2. I think resisting Target earns you a medal! and I'm the same way with running... I always struggle to get out the door but never regret it once I do. good luck :)

  3. I love your goals for the week! It's so important to appreciate and reward yourself through travel, exercise, etc. I'm so happy to see so many girls making it a priority! It's so inspiring and it reminds me to carve that time out for myself! Have a wonderful week! I look forward to following along :)

  4. I have that journal! Which reminds me ... I should probably start writing in it again or I'll never make it to five years. :/ Good luck with your goals this week! One of my goals should also be to go running. I ran a half-marathon in November and have only run twice since. Like, at all. For only about 3 miles each time. Yikes!

  5. Congrats on avoiding Target! I spend soooo much money on the most random stuff every time I go in there. You've got real will power, girl! Good luck this week!
