Weekly Wishes #4

This Weekly Wishes post will be a place for me to share my goals for the week. Hopefully blogging about them will help them to actually happen!

Godiva; jewelry shopping; Galaxy sundae; Carytown Cupcakes; Science Museum; Moon at Science Museum; Mexican!; new tattoo (technically after my birthday.. Whatever!)

Last week, my only goal was to have a fun 23rd birthday! I did this! It was the first birthday I hadn't been 300 miles away from my mother for in 5 years, so we went up to Richmond for gallivanting. We did some shopping (mostly window, but we also found some cute jewelry and trinkets! Actually most of the real shopping we did involved treats: Godiva and cupcakes, to be exact). We had lunch at this cute place called Galaxy Diner. She asked our waiter if they did anything there for birthdays, and he said, "No, but I'm kinda bored, so I'll make you a sundae if you want." Of course I wanted. It was awesome. Then we went to the IMAX at the Science Museum and saw a movie about the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. For dinner my mom and dad and I went out for Mexican (aka we went out for margaritas and also some food). They brought me a sombrero and sang "Feliz CumpleaƱos" a mi! There was also fried ice cream.. WHICH WAS AWESOME. 
My subgoal was  to schedule my tattoo appointment. Not only did I schedule it, but I got it! The appointment was only 2 days after my birthday and I was really nervous. I had to go by myself so I texted my friends from afar and read people's blogs to try to not focus on the pain.. Didn't work so well, as it still hurt SO MUCH for SO LONG.. But the result is pretty great, I think. 

It's Tuesday. So clearly I did not get to this yesterday. It's not that I was really busy, but it sort of felt like I was. I don't know what happened really. I thought about it during the day and couldn't really come up with what I wanted my goals to be. But I've thought some more and here they are:

Call a friend. I don't have anyone here to hang out with; that's just a fact. But that doesn't mean I don't miss people. So I want to call someone, not text. To say hi and catch up and whatnot. 
Get my cards together. I made a list in August of people I wanted to send birthday cards to. I haven't bought or sent any. I work in a card shop, how embarrassing! My favorite college roommate's birthday is this month, and so is one of my favorite cousins' (should you not have favorite cousins? Oops) so I should really send them a birthday card! 
Walk Lilo! I snuggle her all the freakin' time, but walking the dog is another thing. Today I did take her to the park for a little bit and she got to splash around in the river, but I think she would probably enjoy a walk or two.

Wish me luck on my goals this week, and I hope you accomplish yours too! Don't forget to link up to Melyssa at The Nectar Collective to share with everyone else!

  1. I love your "Get My Cards Together" goal. I struggle with this one SO much. I always have great intentions on remembering everyone's birthdays, enter them into my calendar and somehow I still manage to forget or I'll buy the card and never send it. Ugh!

    Oh well! Good luck on your goals this week!

  2. good luck with your wishes this week!! I should add call a friend to my list. That's a really good idea

  3. How are you goals going this week? :)

  4. Funny you should ask! I just finished the cards for the month and I'm about to put on shoes to walk Lilo! :)

  5. Thanks, I think so too! I think anyone would love to get a phone call from a friend!

  6. I just wrote my birthday cards for this month, and something that made it easier was getting a variety pack of birthday cards. That way I didn't have to agonize over picking the perfect card for each person. Then you can still really personalize them on the inside!
