Busy week – recap! โœจ

Hello hello hello!

First of all, Happy Friday!!! We made it through the week!

It’s been a long time since I have been able to sit down and blog. Honestly, I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve even been able to sit down and BREATHE! It’s been such a busy week, I had a two-day training at work Tuesday and Wednesday and yesterday I had a presentation I had to do which was sooooo stressful for me. So I’ve been at work past 5 everyday and it’s been so tiring. I finally get to work from home today and next week will be much more calm where I can go back to my regular hours.

To be honest, I feel so drained that I don’t even know what to do with my life right now. The only thing I’ve been consistently doing is working out and eating right which is a huge plus and is most likely the reason I was able to get through this week!

I want to talk about how working out has affected my mood! I feel much more energized and my sleep is a lot better. I have been taking melatonin at night this week to make sure I am able to fall asleep because I had to get up so early for work, but working out has also tired me out which is a good thing! Working out has also let me clear my mind of my stresses. It felt so good to exerciseย  after my training days this week because I was stuck in a room all day from 8-5pm and it was mentally draining. As soon as I got to the gym, it’s like everything was out of my head and I felt more relaxed and clear-minded. The weather is still crap here, but I still have the motivation to walk out to my garage and workout even if it’s super cold during the walk! So I have to say exercising and being consistent with it is one of the best choices I’ve made this month!

Let’s get into the topic of public speaking. I absolutely HATE it!! It makes me so stressed out and I’m literally a mess until it’s over with. I’ve hated it ever since college and it’s never gotten easier for me. In yesterday’s presentation, I didn’t even have to stand up, but I was shaking so bad and probably stuttering. I just hate being the center of attention and I hope I don’t have to do another presentation for a really, really long time. Does anyone have any good tips on getting past this? It seems like whatever I do, I’m still as nervous as always.

I’m getting back into blogging after this busy week, so today I’m sitting down and writing a list of the future topics I’ll be talking about. I would love to hear what everyone’s favorite thing I blog about is! I know I’m all over the place, it’s hard for me to choose just one group of topics. I love talking about everything! Let me know in the comments ๐Ÿ™‚

This weekend I am taking a lot of time to RELAX after this long, stressful week! I think I’ll do a bath bomb and a face mask with my husband. That always helps me relax and clear my mind. Tonight, my bff’s and I are having a girls night which is going to be lots of fun! We haven’t had one in a while, well I guess our Galentine’s counts, but we went out for pizza. It’ll be fun and a much needed girl time! Saturday, my husband and I will probably go to this game night at his friends house and Sunday will be stay at home and do nothing day (as usual) because Sundayz are for chilling and doing absolutely NOTHING ๐Ÿ™‚

There’s my very long update and I need a vacay :b talk to you soon!

Weekend plans + my Christmas tree!! ๐ŸŽ„

Hi all!!

It’s been a couple days since I last posted and I have to say it’s not because I’ve been lazy, but because I’ve been SO BUSY at work! Seriously, this week has felt like it’s 100 years long and it doesn’t help that I’ve had to sit in meetings pretty much all day everyday this week. I cannot wait until next Thursday because everything will slow down and everyone will be going on vacation in the next couple days. I will be blogging a lot during Christmas week because I will have way more time to. I will also do something I’ve been putting off for over 2 months now – my vacation video! Speaking of vacations, I could really use one right now ๐Ÿ™‚

My schedule is pretty packed this weekend – my two best friends are graduating college so we’re having a dinner thing with one of them and a house party for the other one, I have a baby shower to attend, and of course attending the actual graduations too. On top of that, I need to go buy them gifts, the baby shower gifts, figure out what white elephant gifts I will bring for next week, and get holiday gifts for some of my co-workers. So lots of stuff to buy this weekend! Need to save up some money for the after Christmas sales because that’s when the have the good stuff ๐Ÿ˜‰

I put up my Christmas tree like as soon as Halloween was over (super early, I know) so it’s been decorated and there are some gifts underneath it. I actually got this fake tree last year during the after Christmas sales. It was originally $50 maybe? Not 100%, but I paid $10 for it so it was a steal! So here is mine, it’s not dark outside, otherwise it looks better, but it’s still cute!

Lookin’ all cute with the presents and stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

So there’s mine, but before I left work today I took a picture of their tree and it’s soooo pretty!

Love the green and silver ornaments, so cute!

So there you have it, my Christmas tree and my weekend plans. Hoping to do my Black Friday Haul post soon, just have to find everything I bought!

Until next time ๐Ÿ™‚

Plans & goals for the weekend! ๐ŸŒฟ

Hello & good morning!

Having a nice cup of coffee and writing out my plans and goals for the weekend. I write my goals for the week in a notebook every Sunday or Monday and sometimes I forget to write stuff I want to do for the weekend. So this will be helpful!

Goals and things I have to do:

  • Set up patio set and lights – this has been something we have been working on for about 2 weeks now, it’s just a lot of work cleaning out our backyard, but we should be able to set it up today if not tomorrow
  • Clean my car and truck – have been meaning to clean the inside for a week now, but I have been waiting for Mirhad to go dump the stuff we threw in the back of the truck from the garage so it’s all clear so I can clean it easier
  • Clean stuff from alley way – I don’t think anyone is going to come by from the city to clean it (THANKS A LOT) even though it’s their property, how annoying. So I think we will either clean the stuff closest to us or not do anything and put up a fence lol
  • Vlog – I haven’t vlogged in so long ๐Ÿ˜ฆ so I want to do that this weekend
  • Read – I’ve been meaning to sit down and read, but this week was a blur lol
  • Meditate at least 1x this weekend – my goal has been to do it 3x this week with Mirhad, but we both haven’t had time
  • Find a box to keep my old bills in – it’s just nice to have it organized and if I ever need to pull one out, I know where to find it
  • Grab the bonfire from my moms house – this could’ve easily been done like 100 times this week, but we’re so lazy -.- so that definitely needs to happen this weekend because we want to do bonfires!!!ย 
  • Wash more winter clothes – so I’ve taken all my winter stuff out and washed at least half, the other half needs to be done and Mirhad’s winter stuff too!
  • Organize our closet – clean it out and put away all summer stuff and put in all winter stuff woohoo!

So it’s a pretty long list, but nothing on there takes more than a day to do. The closet and washing clothes will probably be the lengthiest, but it’s gotta get done!ย 

Plans:

  • Fridayย 
    • I am working until 3ish and then I will do some chores around the house
    • Going to make a healthy lunch
    • Possibly have my niece and nephew sleep over tonight
    • Mirhad will hopefully start putting up the lights in the yard
    • Start organizing the closetย 
  • Saturday
    • Have to go over to my sister in laws around 10am to help her with something – guess I can’t really say it on here until I post pics so until then hahaha
    • Going to my best friends parents house around 5ish, will chill there for a bit and then head home, not sure what we’ll do after… maybe a bonfire?!?!!? ๐Ÿ˜€
    • Maybe I can get Mirhad to wash some laundry this dayย 
  • Sunday
    • Hopefully by this time, I’ll have all my chores done so I can CHILL on a Sunday for once
    • Planning to just light a candle, watch a movie, and chill
    • Will probably wash more laundry on this day

So that’s pretty much my weekend, not too much going on!ย 

Tuesday April 10, 2018 ๐ŸŒฟ

Good morning!

Happy Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚ I am currently up drinking coffee, blogging, organizing my binder, and writing my final copy for my homework that’s due today. I really can’t wait to be done with this test on Thursday so I can do some other stuff not related to school that needs to be done… which is A LOT of stuff. I still didn’t get my dress for my shower and it’s less than 2 weeks away, I’m freaking out over this test so my stress is out the roof. I just honestly can’t wait for it to be May. At least by then I’ll have only one class (hopefully) to focus on and I won’t have to worry about anything related to my shower because that will be done with, too. I just feel soooooo tired, even though I get enough sleep. Maybe because my brain literally doesn’t sleep at night because of all of this stuff I need to think about.

Just finished writing my final copy for my homework and Adisa and I found #3 so we are done yay! About to go drive Mirhad to school and then come back and get ready for class. It’s not super cold outside today so I don’t have to bundle up (finally) and tomorrow and Thursday will be 70 and 76 degrees omg, but I bet next week it’ll get super cold again knowing STL’s weather ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I’ve been tracking what I have been eating since yesterday so I think I might keep track of it on here too and that way I can remember to do it as well. I don’t even have a goal weight at this point, I just want to look and feel healthy.

Just got back from driving Mirhad – well actually I got back like 30 minutes ago, but now I am getting ready for class. Today will probably be a quick class because she is just going to go over the stuff we turn in today and then I can just study right when I get home until I have to go pick up Mirhad. I think we are going to the gym after so I’m excited for that!

But yeah, that’s it for now.. will probably do a post of my food log for today!

Bye ๐Ÿ™‚

Monday Feb. 26, 2018

Hello!

Happy Monday! I’ve had a very long weekend. Couldn’t get up for class this morning because I was so tired, so I decided to catch some sleep. Worked on the house literally all day Saturday and Sunday. We ended up finding a leak in two of the rooms, so we had to find a quick solution since it has been raining for the past week. Apparently the siding was done badly, so it leaks in some places so we had to get on the roof (well Mirhad and my dad did, not me lol) and add some stuff in. My mom and I painted the darker walls with primer so it’s easier to paint with the color we want later and then yesterday we painted the ceilings white all over the house. My arms are super sore hahaha. Here’s some updates on the house that I was able to take pics of recently!

Finished all of the tiles in the bathrooms and also right when you walk into the house through the front door. Everything is almost done ๐Ÿ™‚

Got a lot of work this week and I am trying to get a head start on some of my final projects for my online classes and the finals, too, so I’m not struggling that last week. I need to also look back on my notes from financial management because my test is on March 8 and I need to get a good grade lol.

Next 2 weeks will be super busy, so hopefully I will be able to squeeze in some blogging!!!

See ya!! ๐Ÿ™‚
