Weekly Wishes #16

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!

The theme for this week's photo is "Animals." I would be crazy not to use a picture of my favorite pup, right?!

Last week I wanted to: Enjoy Thanksgiving! That's all I was hoping for, and I am pleased to say that I accomplished that goal! We had yummy food and sissy and I went to see Catching Fire (FINALLY!) and I wrote some more Christmas cards. It was sad without our friend this year as she has moved to Texas, but we managed to have a good day anyway. 

This week I want to: Print our Christmas photo! We had a mini photo shoot (okay we gave my dad the camera and he tried) to try for a cute picture to put in Christmas cards for family members (I don't think my friends really want/need a picture of my sister and dog and me), and I think we got one! So I need to send them to Walmart or something. I don't know what size is best! 4x6 or 5x7? 
Finish those Christmas cards! I have written a lot but I still have a lot left! If you want one, just put your address here. :)
Mail the cards! I wanted to have them done to mail today, but I suppose no one will notice if my goal switches to next Monday. They will still definitely arrive in time!

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!

EDIT: And OH MY GOSH, I just remembered.. Today marks 6 months exactly until I depart for Moldova! It feels so close now that I am just.. WOW. I know 6 months is a long time, but it doesn't feel that way! I can't even believe it.

  1. I can't wait to watch Catching Fire!! Good luck with your goals this week!! I'm glad you're also such a lover of all things Christmas! :D

  4. I think you're right! I want to do 5x7 but I don't think that will fit in my envelopes, unfortunately. Womp womp! Good luck with sending yours out too!

  5. Everybody likes to get cards, so I think it's a great idea!

  6. Thanks! Basically every Christmas thing I do is like so exciting to me, so we definitely share that! I hope you get to watch Catching Fire soon, because it's obviously totally awesome.

  7. Yay! Good food and even better family is always a blessing to be thankful for around the holidays. I am glad you enjoyed it even though your friend was minus one :) Photo and christmas cards sound so cute. I hope when I get married my family and I will start that tradition, as my family now has never done anything like that. I'd surly like one! I love "snail mail" (anything is better than bills, right?) I get chill bumps everytime you talk about leaving for the Peace Corps! I'm so happy for you and proud of you. Wow, just think of all the adventures and tales you will have to speak of when you return.

    I have nominated you and your blog as my 2013 Blog of the Year! Check out my post for details, love xoxo http://littlemissdesigner.org/diary/2013-blog-of-the-year-award/

  8. You are the best, Tamara! I always love it when you comment because you have such wonderful and thoughtful things to say, and they make me so happy! It also makes me SO happy to read your post about Blog of the Year! I realize that I haven't said that to you yet, because as soon as I saw it, I wrote you a card.. Then I realized that you wouldn't get that right away and would think I was ignoring you.. Which I'm not! Haha. Thank you <3
