Weekly Wishes

Good Monday Morning! Isn't this day just glorious? I have to say, the cold weather is back and we may have a little bit of snow coming down today, but after Thursday's toasty 51 degrees, and the rain it has melted most of the snow down! It's actually manageable!

Today I link up with The Nectar Collective for Weekly Wishes. This is an opportunity to share your wishes, goals, and or dreams with everyone. For me, it's a way to hold me accountable to get things done and off my to do list!

The Nectar Collective

So here goes:

1. Mail off packages to family and friends!  I have about 3 packages that I just need to gather everything and send off. It's just difficult while you're waiting on other items! Don't get me wrong, I love the flat rate boxes from the USPS, but at $16 a pop, I want to cram as much stuff as I can into it!

2. Make ocean themed decor. I've come to the conclusion that I need beachy themed items around me to be happy. If I can't live by the ocean, then I want to at least pretend! So, I have tons of sea glass that I collected over the three years we lived on Oahu, and I just don't want it sitting there in a box. Sounds good right? Right!

3. Finish online photography class. I signed up for an online photography class a few months ago through Groupon. I managed to get half way finished before getting too busy with all the doctor's appointments and testing. Now, I feel there is a light at the end of the tunnel with all of that and I can wrap up all the loose ends... like this class! I definitely think that everyone needs a refresher course on how to use their camera every once in a while, and while it's on Groupon for half price, it's the perfect opportunity!

And that's all folks! I'm sticking to just 3 this week, and planning on spending the rest of my time studying my Beth Moore book- Breaking Free. The way I do it is this, bright and early I make my coffee, grab my book, and study a chapter. I may do a little journaling and bible study on my own after that. Then, I break out my precious Blue Baby and spend time doing yoga and contemplating what I just learned.

Isn't that a gorgeous mat? It is AH-mazing!  Get yours here.

What's your big wishes for this week?


  1. I absolutely love an ocean/coastal design at home. It's like having a small part of a vacation at home at all times and always leaves me feeling much calmer. Good luck with all your goals this week!

  2. Oh fun idea about the beach decor. I signed up for a photography class also. It is so hard to keep up and do all the assignments. I just need to make myself do it. Good luck with your goals this week.

  3. I love the yoga mat!
    I think those are great wishes. I hope you're feeling well.

  4. I love that I'm not the only one who doesn't get stuff in the mail right away. Sometimes it feels like I can drag mailing a package to someone on for weeks either looking for the perfect box or waiting for one more item!

    Good luck with your goals!
