Weekly Wishes #20

I am currently sitting under my warm and fuzzy Vera Bradley blanket (you need one of these, I swear. Greatest thing I ever bought. Okay, things. Yes, I have two.) watching snow fall! It's so pretty when you don't have to leave your chair. Now there's a cute little squirrel sitting on the porch watching the snow too! Actually, I think he might be eating something. It's hard to tell. He is adorable with snowflakes on him, though.

Oh man, and my sweet little puppy heard the wind blowing and just came over to my armchair, looked at me like, Can I pleeeeeease come up there with you?? So now we're snuggling and I'm loving it.

Exciting thing, guys: The Mindy Project winter finale is toniiiiiiiiiiight! I'm pretty freaking excited! And New Girl, too, but let's face it, I need Danny and Mindy in my life so that's my top priority. Hope you'll be watching with me!

Oh, right, my Weekly Wishes! :)

Last week I wanted to: Start my journal. I did this! This might be really weird, but I think I'm a little past the "Dear Diary" stuff (though I support you if you still write that!) so instead I'm kind of writing to my future grandchildren. I don't do "Dear _____" but I treat the journal as if it's something that will be read by my future kids' kids.. Because I would for sure read something my grandma had written, especially if it's about cool stuff she did in life!
Make at least one of my dreaded appointments. Okay, I didn't do this, but my mother is going to help me and we are going to stop by the doctor some time this week to talk about all the stuff I need done.
Spend some time reading. I finished the book I was reading, Falling Together, and it was really good! I was up crying while finishing it... As usual. I definitely recommend it if you like books about love and complicated friendships and journeying through life together and apart.
Respond to a few letters. I wrote one! Check!

This week I want to: Seriously get to the doctor. I need to stop being a baby, I know it.
Take down the tree and put all the decorations away. Uhhh, yeah, it's almost February. What of it?!
Clean up so I can play Just Dance - and play Just Dance! Yoga once a week is really not enough activity for me. I gotta move!
Clean up in the basement. I'm only working two days this week so I have got to be productive! It starts now! Okay, it starts soonish. (See my problem here? Ha.)
Make my Shutterfly book! I have a coupon for a free photo book from Shutterfly that expires at the end of this month, and I think it would be a good thing to take with me when I move! Any suggestions on making one of these books? I've never done it, and I'm not so great at scrapbooking or anything either so I don't really know what I'm doing! I welcome all tips.

Have an awesome week!

  1. Writing letters to your grandkids is such an awesome idea! My grandparents on one side of the family both kept daily journals. They weren't necessarily meant to be read by anyone, and they are mostly day-to-day records: "cooked chicken for dinner. Billy had baseball practice." etc. but I love reading about their lives through their journals.

  2. I love shuttefly! Go on Pinterest and type in shutterfly ideas. Your mind will be blown!

  3. Just typed in "shutterfly ideas" per Jessica's suggestion. She's so right. Do it!
    Also, so what if it's Feb? You rock on with your holiday decorations :) Ha.

  4. That's so cool! What a great thing that you get to read about their daily lives. I love that!

  5. Going to Pinterest RIGHT NOW to look!

  6. Christmas trees and ornaments and lights are really just too pretty to take down right away! So I appreciate the encouragement hehe :)
