Hopes, Plans & To Dos

There's pretty much nothing funnier than writing a post at 5 in the morning with your puppy dog snoring beside you on the couch. Just in case you were wondering, that's exactly what's happening on this here gloomy Monday. I swear y'all a dog's life is pretty glamorous. 

Anyway hubs made it home this weekend and guess where we went? What else--the beach! We found one that was a little more out of the way than we usually go to and it really reminded me how lucky we are to live here. #gorgeous

Now it's time to check out how I did on my Hopes and Plans last week. 

// Finish 2 more blog designs for the shop Grand Opening. Does my own design count? Because I did spend at least a day trying to figure out how to code my navigation bar. However if I was going to be truthful, I still need to work on this one. 

// Read the last 3 of the HP books. Done! I finished Deathly Hallows Saturday night while Zach was playing his new video game. Aaaaannd I loved it of course. 

// Work out a budget that works for us. Pretty much done. I'm trying to do a variation of the David Ramsey Baby Steps program  and I think I've actually got a pretty good plan going. Plus with Zach gone to school, we're saving a little bit more money these next few months than usual. Oh and I FINALLY changed our cable plan, which makes a pretty big dent in our budget too! 

// Organize my recipe collection. Not done. Like at all. This is going on next week's to do list. 

// Enjoy some Mom & Duke time.  Dukey has become such a cuddle bug lately. Zach came home and marveled at how much personality is coming out now that we've had him for about 2 months. He's pretty much the very best friend a girl could ever ask for while her hubby is away. 


THIS WEEK'S HOPES & PLANS

// Open my Etsy Shop!!! This is tomorrow and boy do I have tons to do between then and now. Including adding two more designs to the shop. I can't wait to show y'all what I've been planning and I really hope you're all as excited as I am. 

// Answer all my emails. It's the bane of my existence. I'll just barely have all my emails answered and all of my schedule written down before more emails come rolling in and I have to start over again. Last week I kind of slacked and now I'm paying the price! 

// Eat at least 2 meals a day. Does this one sound like a weird one to you? I mean, I love to cook and I post a ton of recipes on this here little old blog. BUT I don't like cooking when it's just me. And in general, my appetite pretty much goes out the window when I'm stressed or lonely so I'm hoping this helps me focus on eating better than I did last week.  

// Find a crafty way of using the canvases I originally bought for another craft project. About 2 months ago, I got all of the supplies for some DIY state art but it just never came together like I wanted too and I want to figure out something along the same lines to do that's still in my DIY realm of knowledge. Pretty much things that do not require modge podge or painting. 

// Re-categorize all my old blog posts. I added a few category buttons to my sidebar and when doing this I realized just how many labels I have for my posts. This week I'm going to try to simplify them and categorize them so specific posts are easier for all y'all to find!
