Goals for the Week

Every Sunday I try to write down a list of goals I want to accomplish for the week. Maybe writing them down and putting them out there for the world to see will help hold me more accountable.

1.) Get my house clean
2.) Not complain about work when i get home
3.) Cook supper every night this week and not eat out
4.) Complete 2 weeks worth of homework for my online class
5.) Get up at 6 a.m. to walk Lola at least 3 times this week
6.) Finish my Christmas want list for my parents and Kane
7.) Complete my 'to get' list for my Christmas shopping
8.) Finish my write up
9.) Complete my monthly budget for November
10.) Call and get auto insurance set up
11.) Finish and mail out all my wedding thank your

Hopefully I can cross each of these items of my list during the week!

Lazy Nights

Yep...this makes my heart smile.

My husband is on fall break so I took the day off to spend with him and catch up on errands. I must have worn both of them out :)

Oh P.S.- There is a pretty amazing giveaway going on over at Shades of Gray and a Pinch of Pink. Go check it out!

Does that make me crazy ?!?!

I am linking up with Michelle over at The Vintage Apple for a fun little thing called Does That Make Me Crazy? I know there are plenty of things I do that I think are completely normal but others might think I am a little crazy when I do them. Kind of like....

- Does it make me crazy if ... sometimes when I don't feel like making supper I'll just eat a can of black olives or mashed potatoes.

- Does it make me crazy if ... In the shower I have a very strict routine= Shampoo hair, rinse, conditioner, wash face, rinse conditioner, wash body. And I never stray from this routine.

- Does it make me crazy if ... I like to sing in the car only if my windows are up.

- Does it make me crazy if ... I hardly ever blow dry my hair, I hate using a blow dryer.

- Does it make me crazy if ... I don't like to go to the movie theater if the movies require a lot of thinking (I'd much rather people watch)

- Does it make me crazy if ... I hate using public bathrooms. And I hate using public bathrooms when anyone else is in there.

- Does it make me crazy if ... I don't eat popcorn with my hands. I have specific 'popcorn' bowls that are really shallow so I can just eat it out of the bowl (Weird I know, my husband hates it)

- Does it make me crazy if ... I never order meat at a restaurant and would prefer not eating meat I didn't cook myself.

These don't make me too crazy, right ? Can't wait to read what everyone else has!

Lola has been a member of our family for about a month now. I can't believe what a big difference she has made in our house. 

1.)We are always in a good mood---who wouldn't be in a good mood when someone is so dang excited to see you!

2.) We exercise. This is huge for us as we are those people who set their alarm clocks at 5:30 a.m. in hopes of getting up to run (Newsflash- we always end up getting up at 6:45 a.m.- exactly 45 minutes before we have to leave everyday) But now that we have Lola nightly walks have become a staple in our household. Also, we take a lot more naps after said walks.

3.) Our house is clean. If we don't pick things up she eats them. Plain and simple.

4.) We have a valid excuse when we don't want to go out. We are homebodies and I like to stay in sometimes instead of going out and getting crazy.

5.) She has helped reinforce the ideas we are not ready to have children. She will be the only living thing that depends on us to survive for at least the next 5 or so years.

6.) She's pretty darn awesome. 

 Don't judge me for the bad photo
