Weekly Wishes- The one with a harness and heavenly cupcakes

So today, as all Mondays, I link up with The Nectar Collective to bring you my weekly wishes. This is just a way to hold me accountable for things/goals I need/want to do this week. Sort of puts a time limit on your to do list!

Also, I'm going to be threading in my instagram pics from last week. Might as well share those with you while you read!

Last week's wishes:

1. Continue blogging and scheduling posts for the month. (but what blogger EVER feels like they are blogging enough, am I right?) 2 weeks scheduled out, booyah! I couldn't believe the amount of work it takes to cover weeks ahead of time. Good thing I love my readers! Next time, I think I'll just schedule a break instead, less stress that way! 

2. DIVE into my bible morning and night! I feel like the morning bible study sessions are awesome because it really puts me in the right mindset to handle the rest of the day. Although, at night, as soon as I lay my head down, all of the worries, thoughts, plans, and feelings have to run around in my mind, preventing me from falling right asleep! Hopefully, if I dedicate an hour to bible study right before bed, I can just concentrate on that and sleep like a baby! I've been doing this on most days, if not all. Sometimes I do get a bit lazy and just read the daily She Reads Truth devotional and meditate on it. But hey, I think it still counts! And if you haven't heard about them, please do yourself a favor and go check out the site! It's an amazing little community and so encouraging to study the Word. 

3. Start making lists! This week is to prep for the vacation. I need to make grocery lists of things we will need while we are at the lake, as well as packing lists so I don't forget anything! I am notorious for forgetting if it's not written down, so this is the only way everything will be taken care of. Sucks getting older! Done and done! Most of the grocery shopping is done minus the produce (I want it to be as fresh as possible.) Half the bags are packed, and/or sitting next to the luggage. Maybe if I throw everything I'll need in a big pile, the magical fairy will pack it for me the night before... or Ginny... 

 4. Comment! I am the worst blogger when it comes to this. To my fellow bloggers, I read your posts, I really do. And most of the time, I think the comment in my head and the move along BEFORE I actually type out the comment! I am terribly sorry about this! I promise to really focus and make sure to leave you comments of encouragement each and every time I stop by your blog! AND... I've been having all sorts of trouble with my Google + profile switching me to a no-reply blogger! I've converted back to the regular blogger profile, so hopefully this will work. But please, never hesitate to tell me when anything is wrong! Have y'all been feeling the love? You should! I've been pouring encouragement all over the blogosphere this week! I know how much blood, sweat, and tears goes into maintaining a space, so I want to show you just how much I appreciate YOU! Again, if I am a no reply blogger to you, please let me know so I can fix it again! 

And finally, 5. This is a big one, folks. I have been so inspired lately. More and more bloggers are just putting their faith and beliefs out there on blast. I love it! But, I have been so worried that if I post too much faith based posts, that I will loose readers, or offend someone. I am a people pleaser, so I tried to be very limited on my faith posts. I can say now, especially that I will be re-committing myself and my life to my savior, that there will be more and more faith posts on here. I know, almost for a fact, that I will loose readers. And that's okay with me. I won't hold it against you. It's not every one's cup of tea, and I am really not going to be upset about it. I just think that y'all come here to see what I'm up to, to read about me and my life, and this is a huge part of it already and will only continue to be even bigger part everyday. So, if this is your last time reading due to this, I thank you for putting up with me this long! :) I will be sad to see you go, but to each his own! I pretty much rocked this list! I've been brewing up more faith based posts and I can't wait to share them with you over the next couple of weeks! I think everyone starts a blog as one thing, but over time, it slowly morphs into something completely different. And that's okay, that's life! I hope all of you continue to read as my little corner of the web slowly becomes more me.

Can I just get a big yeehaw for knocking out all of my wishes?! Yeah! I hope everyone has completed their lists if not, at least a few chunks complete! 

This week, I decided I would not be giving myself goals or wishes. Basically, all I will be doing is more packing, getting ready, training Ginny to like her new Sleepy Pod car seat/harness! Have you checked those things out? Looks pretty intense to put on a dog, but if it will safe her life one day, I'm all for learning how to put that bad boy on her! 

What are your wishes for the week? Comment below! 


  1. Those cupcakes look amazing!! We want to get Howie a little carseat type thing but I'm not sure how much he's going to love it :P Way to be, you've been doing well with your wishes!

  2. I've got so many lists to make too. So many. I've made a dent in it though! Jealous of your two weeks scheduled ahead of time, I keep meaning to do that but it's so hard to sit down and write! Terrible.

  3. Well done for ticking off everything on your list! You definitely deserve a holiday :-)

  4. Woo hoooo! Great job lady!
    Happy packing, give Ginny a hug
