Weekly Wishes No. 2

Monday, October 7, 2013

Happy Monday, everyone! I'm one of those people who sees the weekend as a rest from the week instead of a continuation of the crazy that is Monday through Friday, so I'm usually in a good mindset when Monday rolls around. And I have unpacked my fall clothes, so I demand that the thermostat not go above 80.

LOFT had their typical 40% everything sale this weekend (like they always do when I happen to be in their store/looking at their website) and I might have outdone myself a little. To help me sleep better at night, I tell myself that it is an investment in my future. Plus, I get rewards points for using my LOFT card. Guess who earned $20 in store credit? This girl. Basically, I was making money shopping. Don't agree with my logic? Then you must live a sad life.

Do you remember the first (and only) time I linked up with Weekly Wishes? It may have been a month ago, but I would just like to tell the world that I did eventually complete all of my goals.

Here's a recap:

1. Update my resume // You can view my entire digital portfolio here.

2. Organize my planner // I have found a good balance between day planner and Google calendar that works for me. Which leads me to my third goal.

3. Step away from the tv // You might not believe me, but I did tone down my consumption the past month, but now that goal is a moot point.

On to this week's goals:

1. Link up with Weekly Wishes on a regular basis // Yes, I'm that person would has to be reminded to set a reminder. But setting goals, and more importantly keeping up with your progress, is a great way to feel like you have gotten things accomplished.

2. Try a new recipe each week // I can already check this one off my list. Recipe to come later this week.

3. Update my blog design and content // In honor of Stamp in my Passport's first birthday, it is getting a complete facelift and I can't be more excited for it!

No way. My goal last week was to watch more TV haha!
And definitely link up regularly. I find this link-up really motivating.
I'm aiming to cook more too. Can't wait to see what recipe you made.
Good luck with this week's goals. Looking forward to the new blog look.

I love your idea about making a recipe each week. I have a ton of cookbooks and a subscription to Cooks Illustrated and I never use recipes. Good luck with your wishes! Post a pic of your culinary conquests!

It's such a great idea to try at least one new recipe a week. I used to be so much better about that. It really helped me to get out of a cooking rut. Now I'm trying to rethink all of my favorite recipes for a boat kitchen... if you come across any easy one pot meals, pass them along! :)

Jess said...

Um, that is awesome shopping logic. Why would you think about it any other way?

I really like your goal of trying a new recipe each week. Life needs variety! Hope you share some winners with us :)

Happy first blog birthday!!!

Glad you are back for Weekly Wishes and good luck this week!
