Weekly Wishes #2 + My Pictures from Last Week


I took this picture at a one-year party for my friend's daughter a few weeks ago.

{ Goals For Last Week }

1. Take a picture every day. Done! Check them out below.

2. Make contact every day with a friend via letter or email. Done! On Thursday I even had an hour-long three-way phone call with a few college friends, which was awesome. On Saturday I mailed a letter to a friend who lives in England, so that baby is going to cross an ocean, which is fun to think about.

3. Memorize James 3:16. Done! I wrote it on an index card and carried it with me all week. Samantha even decided to do it with me! 

4. Call the eye doctor and make an appointment. I called Monday and went in for an appointment on Tuesday. AND, I'm not going blind! In fact, my prescription hasn't changed at all. I told Jordan that I paid $109 for peace of mind. Worth it!


 { Goals For This Week }

1. Cross off #25 on my 30 by 30 list 

I will be using this recipe.

2. Drop off clothes at Goodwill

The trunk of my car is filled with stuff to give away. Mostly summer clothes I didn't wear and have decided I can do without. This week I'm going to drop my load off!

3. Go to the car wash

I really hate taking my car to the wash. However, lately every bird within a 10-mile radius seems to think my car is a litter box, and even though I live in an apartment, never brush my hair, and wear sweatpants 80% of the time, driving around in a poop mobile is where I draw the line.

4. Run half marathon #6! 

On Saturday I will run my sixth half marathon! My goal is to run it under 1:55, which I know is doable, but we'll see. I've been taking it easy on training lately, so I'm planning on just seeing how I feel. I have four races scheduled for the remainder of 2013, and I really just want to enjoy them instead of worrying too much about pace and time. Recap to come!

Write up some wishes for your week and link up!

Is that book good? Is it based in the same area as AoGG? I see a lighthouse!
Snail mail is the best.
Your muffins were really good, did I tell you that?
I need froyo.
Adorable picture of H.
Glad you're not going blind (phew).
That is all.
The end.

Okay, just kidding. That is all.

I really like the idea of setting small goals for the week. Although somehow my weeks always seem to go in a different direction and then I feel frustrated when I don't get the things I wanted done! Good for you for getting your whole checklist done this week!

WHOA!!! High five for getting all of your goals scratched off the list! Can you make a mojito for me too?

Good luck on your half marathon! You are going to be amazing :) I loved seeing your photos from this week. You have inspired me--I really am going to try harder to walk around with my camera in hand (seeing that I completely failed last week :).

I have to read before bed too! The Mojito sounds yummy! Thanks for the reminder I need to go through my clothes and donate some. Look forward to reading about the race next week!

I love those Toys stamps! If they were in my house my daughter would use them as stickers and I'd never get to put them on any mail.

Those stamps are adorable, and I should totally read more. I feel like I don't need to make weekly wishes because I can just use yours for my own life. So thanks for that. Haha :) you're awesome.

Amber Marie said...
