my weekly to-do list...

This past week was the loveliest sort (Eisley tantrums and potty-training woes aside). My parents and youngest sisters are in town, which is always completely wonderful. Also, we did end up getting our Disneyland passes over the weekend (hurrah!), so Jay, Eisley and I spent our first Disney morning together as a little family. The year ahead is sure to be one of the best! (And filled with an excessive amount of princesses and churros and emotional firework shows. Get ready.)

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
 — Date night
 — Get up early and make Jay breakfast at least once
 — Deep clean/organize something (tackled the medicine cabinet in our bathroom and cleaned—gasp!—under our microwave)
 — Try one new recipe

Self
 — Exercise 5 times
 — Earn at least one $5 gift card through Swagbucks (earned two, to be exact!)
 — Finish reading one book or e-book
 — Make time for daily prayer (even though most days they were the end-of-the-day, laying-in-bed, halfway-asleep sort of prayers)

Creativity
 — Make 6 hair bows to donate

Miscellany
 — Resist the urge to buy anything unnecessary

This week's goals:

Marriage, Motherhood & Home Life
 — Deep clean/organize something
 — Get up early and make Jay breakfast at least once
 — Make something from scratch, food-wise
 — Try a new craft or activity with Eisley

Self
 — Work on my positive attitude
 — Exercise 5 times
 — Read every day

Creativity
 — Updates to blog layout

Miscellany
 — Organize photos from Jan/Feb on computer
 — Plant something

It's going to be a toasty-roasty week around here, so I may be surviving solely on orange juice popsicles and lamenting the fact that, for some odd reason, I have not owned shorts for the past few years. Happy Monday, all!

  2. You ROCKED last week's list!! I also cleaned under the microwave.... because I happened to have bent over to pick up something, and glanced up right into that dark abyss, and thought, "EW." Didn't end up being that bad, all told. I have maybe worn shorts once since middle school, haha. My bloggy has some recipes for you to try, ;)

  3. Well done on last week's list! I've started doing a mental checklist, but writing it down (and being able to cross it off!) might help me accomplish more. :)
    I'm not a huge fan of shorts, but when it gets hot, you must! I second J. Crew's shorts...and also have had some good luck at Old Navy.
    Enjoy family time. :)
