Weekly Wishes

September 23, 2013
As usual, I'm joining in on The Nectar Collective's Weekly Wishes Link Up.

My wishes last week were to:

Blog at least 4 times in a week's time.  I did end up meeting this goal, but I knew I'd have some extra time this week to do so.  :)

Be patient and open minded at work.  I transferred movie theaters and my first day at the new one was on Friday.  I still do the same exact job, but need to learn where stuff is at the new theater and adjust to how things are done because every general manager runs a theater a bit differently.  I do have to say that I think it was in my best interest to transfer and I'm liking it so far.

Watch my budget carefully.  Well, I don't know how well I've done with this considering I bought a $54 blazer from Maurices and a leopard print blouse from there, too.  The blazer is so cute and I needed it for work to replace my old black one that is starting to look ragged!  Oh well, it's not like I went on a huge shopping spree or anything.  I could have done better, but I could have done worse.

Do something fall related.  I went and got my first Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks!  Also, my friend and I have a hike planned for tomorrow.  Some of the leaves are starting to change color, but the leaves are mostly still all green around here.


 This week's wishes:

* Organize my jewelry.  It has become a huge mess and while I was looking for something, I just dumped everything out.  I need order!  I bet once I can see what I have available, I'll start wearing some pieces that I forgot I owned.

* Pack and prepare for my trip to Eastern Pennsylvania.  I'll be staying with my grandparents from Friday-Monday.  My sister is meeting me there, too.  Since my grandparents have gotten older and my grandma's health is deteriorating, they just don't make it out to visit us like they used to, so we will go to them.

* Finish reading RosesI have just had this book checked out for awhile from the library and I think I'm going to have to return it soon because I've exceeded my limit!  I've been really into the book lately and have had some reading time, so this should be feasible.

That's it!  I'm not putting anything big down for this week, since I'm sort of going on a little mini vacation. In what ways do you plan on having fun this week?

  1. Your trip sounds like so much fun! I got to see my out of town family this weekend and it was such a sweet time. I hope you have a blast!

    1. Thank you. I hope so, too! The last time I spent a week with them was over three years ago before I started my Master's program!

  2. I just got back from visiting with my parents and sister's family, yesterday. It was so much fun! Spending time with my family is definitely one of my favorite ways to spend a weekend.

    Good luck with your goals, especially the jewelry one. I have 3 different jewelry boxes full of costume jewelry and I am constantly finding something I forgot I had. I love that! It makes you feel like you bought something new, even when you didn't. :)

    1. I just hope my grandma remembers me...She has dementia. :(
      I felt the same way when going through my jewelry...I have stuff that I haven't worn in ages only because I had forgotten about it!

  3. Too funny. I got a new jewelry armoire for my birthday in APRIL and still haven't organized it. Looks like i need to hop on the bandwagon for that goal. And the budget one...

    1. I want a jewelry armoire so badly! I've been holding out to buy the perfect one. I'd like to find one with a floral design.

  4. Sounds like you got most of your wishes accomplished that's good! And your trip sounds fun..I don't get to visit my family as much as I would like to since I live far away. I miss them! My fun plans for the week are my bf is home Wed-Mon (he works out of town for 16 days at a time then comes home for 6 days) and he is taking me to my first Rangers baseball game on Friday then we are just hanging out and relaxing the rest of the days!

  5. Everyone keeps going on about the Pumpkin Spiced Latte from Starbucks.. I think a trip to that coffee shop is well over due!
    Good luck with your wishes, I'm sure you'll finish that book in time while you are on your mini-vacation :)
    Have fun!

    1. I bet you're right about finishing the book. :) I am a true fan of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, but I love almost anything pumpkin spice flavored!

    1. Thanks! I actually got most of it organized, got rid of a few items, but then I discovered that I had put some jewelry in a box that I thought was empty, so I have that to do, too.

  7. Organizing EVERYTHING is high on my list right now, but I should probably start small with something like jewelry :)

    1. Yeah, it can all be so overwhelming...probably a good idea to break it down into smaller tasks.
