Last week was my first time doing this sort of a list, and I'm happy to say I at least crossed off a few items from my list. Not too shabby.

Here is the progress I made on last week's list, as well as my new list for the upcoming week!

Last week's goals:

Marriage, Motherhood & Home Life
 — Finish Eisley's creativity cart (completed, except for the spray painting!)
 — Plan a date night for this month
 — Deep clean and/or organize something (deep cleaned the bathroom, dusted the vents that I always forget about and had our landlord repaint the dreadful shower window and re-caulk the tub)

 Start reading one of the many books I've been meaning to begin (started reading Jeneration X by Jen Lancaster, and Million Little Ways by Emily P. Freeman)
 — Earn at least one $5 gift card from Swagbucks
 — Complete devotions/journal at least 5 days

 — Spray-paint something
 — List new postcards in the shop
 — Complete current lettering projects for book (almost completed, but not quite!)

 — Send one unexpected piece of snail mail (going out in the mail today, but technically I had it ready to send yesterday, so…I'm crossing this one off to make myself feel better)

This week's goals:

Marriage, Motherhood & Home Life
 — Plan a date night for this month
 — Organize favorite photos from January/February into one folder on computer
 — Deep clean and/or organize something
 — Take Eisley to a new park

 — Finish reading one e-book
 — Run 2 times; do yoga/pilates DVD 2 times
 — Buy flowers for front steps

 — Complete lettering projects for book and turn in for review
 — Design free printable for blog

 — Send one unexpected piece of snail mail

Also, I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to enter my postcard giveaway! You all had such sweet things to say, and it really means the world to me. Congrats to the winner of the giveaway: Jen, who blogs over at Pearls & Politics. I will contact you this week and send some pretty postcards your way!


  1. Your lists are so beautiful.

  2. Yay for me! :)

    I need to get back in the habit of making lists. Since Charlotte was born, I haven't had much routine to my days, and I miss it. Lists always help!

  3. such a good list. love it!

  4. This is a good idea, I especially like breaking it up into categories.... All my ideas are always swimming around in my head and make me crazy. I should do a list like this!

  5. To-Do lists are so great, especially when trying to balance life, love, motherhood, work, house... I use them daily and feel so great when I can actually cross the things off!
