Weekly Wishes

Good morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend! To start this week off right, let us dive straight into the weekly wishes...

Last week's recap:

1. Compose and schedule all blog posts for the week so I can spend quality time with the Mr. and NOT glued to my computer. Didn't compose a single post ahead, but I'm more determined this week. I just want a day where I don't have to rack my brain for post topics!

2. Get all Etsy orders out and create more product since I will close the store for 2 weeks. Hey, a girl has to recharge her creative juices every once in a while! Taking a small break does that for me! I shipped everything out, but didn't get to create more product. I think I've run out of time with this one before the break. I'll just keep shipping out stock I already have!

 3. Plan and shop for our Thanksgiving meal. I think it'll have to be before Thanksgiving day due to  the Mr.'s weird work schedule, but that's okay. We make things work! Didn't do this one either! I did plan and execute Sunday's gathering, so that counts right?

4. Decorate for Christmas! I'm sorry for those of you who don't agree, but putting up decorations to bring the true spirit of Christmas into our home is so important to me. And I will need longer than from Thanksgiving to Christmas Day to have the decorations up!  This is a big fat check mark complete! I love the decorations up! Glitter everywhere, sparkling throughout the day... I mean what is there not to like?

5. Rejoice in the scriptures as much as possible. I have a lot of different books going on right now, and I think I'll cut down on all but one. Books like, The Love Dare, God's Little Devotional, Woman After God's Own Heart, and my She Reads Truth email comes every single morning. It's just too much to read and try to apply all of the messages at once much less do bible study on books I want to study personally! I'm thinking, I do my study plus ONE book until I finish that one, and THEN pick up another.... sounds like a plan, right? Done and done. I've chosen to read and study the Wife After God book and hopefully my BFF Jessica does it with me! Anyone else is more than welcome to join us! I know it's going to be tough around the holidays, but I need to focus on my relationships- more on this tomorrow when I link up with Amberly for the Monthly Marriage and Relationship Goals!

CAN I JUST SAY BOOM? All done! Oh, how I love organized lists!

This week's wishes are:

1. Keep up the post writing so I can have a few stashed away for rainy days. Let's face it, some days the last thing we want to do is come up with a post. And you don't want to publish just filler junk on here, so this would be awesome to have for those days!

2. Organize my pictures on computer, phone, and hard drive. It's a mess, a real bonafide mess.

3. Meal plan the WHOLE month of December. With many events taking place in December, I feel like I need to meal plan for the regular days. Hopefully I can also get my grocery shopping done for those days where all I have to do is check the plan and cook it! Sounds pretty painless right?

4. Finish Christmas shopping! My goal is to be completely done and all gifts wrapped by December 1st.

5. Design, execute, and photograph new creations for my Etsy Shop. I put the shop on hold for a few weeks so I can refresh my creative juices without being bogged down with the regular items I have on there. I think it will bring sales down, but hopefully improve sales in the long run.
