Time to jump back in the saddle...

Of my Weekly Wishes with The Nectar Collective on Mondays! This is a marvelous way to keep up with my goals for the week. A sort of "I'm-putting-it-on-the-blog-so-I'm-held-accountable-thing" and it actually works!!! Y'all should try it!

The Nectar Collective

Since I do not even remember the last time I linked up, I'm starting with a clean slate.  This week we have a lot of moving parts going on and I'm hopeful everything will go off without a hitch! By the slight chance there are no hitches, it will be one unbelievable week!

This week's goals

1. Finish up a secret project for a secret couple. That is all I can say. Well, actually, I can say that once it's all over and done with, I will post it on the blog and it's going to be gorgeous!

2. Wake up every morning at 6am for an hour of bible study, journaling, and at least 30 mins Yoga BEFORE doing any house work or Etsy orders. Yeah, this one is pretty tough, but I have been doing this for the last couple of mornings and I have to admit, my day goes so much better when I have some "Me & Jesus Meetings" in the morning!

3. Get in a much snuggles and silly laughter with the Mr. as I can! He will have most of the week off due to some great events happening, (which of course I will recap next week for y'all) and I plan on taking advantage of every second I have with that precious man!

4. TAKE PHOTOS! It has been said, multiple times, that I do not post enough photos of me, or the Mr. or anything on here! I thought about it, and y'all were right! I am a bad blogger when it comes to this. I promise that this week, I will take at least one photo a day. AND- at least 4 of those will be selfies. Deal? I thought it would be nice to include the photos either on Friday's Find Beauty post, or Monday's Weekly Wishes post. Either one will work, so be on the look out for those!

5. Email my church to find out when the next Baptism is. Y'all, let's get deep for a minute. I was raised Catholic, and my family doesn't necessarily like the fact that I'm not going to a Catholic Church. There are many reasons for this, and I won't get into them now, maybe someday. The fact of the matter is, a part of me will always be Catholic. However, I do not feel the connection with God as I should being a practicing Catholic. I've found a huge non-denominational church here, and it's filling my soul with so much knowledge and inspiration to learn more that I just feel like God is telling me to stay here. I'll write another post about the God moment of how I found this church in the future.  So, I know that I've been baptized when I was an infant, as do all Catholic children. In my heart, I just feel like I need another refreshing of the commitment to Jesus.  I've felt this tugging at my heart for the past 4 years, and have battled back and forth over it. If it's been 4 years, and I still feel God tugging at me this strong, I figured I better get it done! Again, the whole point of the Weekly Wishes, (for me anyway) is to be held accountable for the items I put on here. So this one is definitely going to get done! Not another 4 years for me!

Whew! That's it! Trust me, this is a lot to accomplish for the week ahead, but I'm going to live up every second of it!

What are some of your thoughts about getting baptized a second time? I'd love to know, comment down below!


  1. that is so awesome that you're going to get baptized! there have been people at our church who were baptized as infants, but got baptized on the other side of their salvation! it is such an awesome picture! :)

  2. Congratulations on the decision to be baptized! That's awesome news!!! :) :)

  3. Ooo your number two has me written all over it! Mine is - find time when i get home at night - but of course after a long day at work, does it happen!!! Not very often. Have to get my non-morning person butt into gear! Any hints on what you study in the morning?
    Such a great decision to get baptised - excited for you!!! Can't wait to hear that one crossed off x

  4. Sounds like a great week you have planned! I'm a fan of waking up early and getting a head start on things, too. Some days are a struggle but we can do it!
    Have a fantastic week,
