{Doesn't everyone need a picture of themselves like this?!}

After reading Danielle's post about 'One week to be a better me!' I was inspired. I'm pretty sure I'm inspired by like 99% of her posts though! 

I decided that I'm going to try and do some weekly goals for myself. I will share them here occasionally but I'm excited to focus on small goals!

Here are some for this week:

{1} Wake up earlier than normal. Vince usually wakes up with the sunrise, naturally, and I'm so jealous of it. On Sunday morning, I was woken up by the dogs barking non-stop in the backyard, so I had to get up and let them in. For some reason I didn't go back to bed and went and turned on the TV. When Vince was done going to the bathroom {the reason I had to get up in the first place!} we snuggled and talked and it was really awesome. When we do that at night, Vince ALWAYS falls asleep and our conversations are kind of half-assed because we're both so tired. So I'll try to wake up with him and get an early start to my day.

{2} Continue to eat small amounts of sugar. I know I can't be completely sugar free, but I know I need to cut down on my sugar intake again. Just one treat a day, unlike the 2 or so I've been having. 

{3} Make a couple pieces of jewelry a day. I tend to come home, immediately get on the computer, and then I'm done for the night. I'm so unproductive after that! The past couple days I've been really inspired and wanting to work on jewelry, and I just go straight into my craft room. It's been wonderful to see how productive I've been!

{4} Read more books. I'm a reader and always have been. I definitely don't go a day without reading part of a book, but I know I should spend even more time reading than I currently do, instead of watching TV. I really wish I could just get rid of our cable, but Vince likes his FuelTV!

{5} Finish the laundry. I have SUCH a horrible habit of doing laundry and then putting the clean clothes back into a basket instead of folding/putting everything away. This leads to me putting those clothes into a pile on the floor because I have more clean clothes that need to be put away. So at the moment all my clothes are clean, but I have like 6 loads to put away! Dreading. It. 

{6} Work on training the dogs. They're assholes. Seriously. Izobel is getting in a bad barking habit because of the other dogs in the neighborhood, and Roxanne just wants to kill our neighbor dog, Star. I think Vince and I need to let them know who's boss! 

So those are my few goals for the week. It's a 'big' list of goals, but they are certainly short and simple!

What are your goals for the week? Blog about it and let me see or leave a comment!


  1. Haha I love #6. Jack definitely has a SUPER annoying barking habit too. He literally barks like a lunatic at anything that moves, which makes me feel like a bad doggy parent.

  2. Little help for #5 either dump them on the sofa and you can fold while watching TV (don't know how well that will work with the dogs) or on the bed--you'll have to fold and put away before getting into bed.

  3. Ya, I feel bad about it, too! I hate it. =/

  4. That's what I usually end up doing, putting them on the couch and watch TV. I don't know why I don't just DO it and always put it off. And that's another problem: I put them on the bed, they end up on the floor, and then I don't know if they're clean or not! Agh!

  5. I love it! I'm going to do the same thing right now. =]

  6. I am so with you on 2 and 4!! My goal this week is to create more cards :)

  7. I do the same thing with laundry, it's so annoying. I'm like YAY ALL DONE...oh has to go into the drawers the time I get it put away, it's time to start again.

  8. Ya, I hate it! It's a never ending battle. =/
