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 😦 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!!!
- 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!
- 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 closet
- 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?!?!!? 😀
- Maybe I can get Mirhad to wash some laundry this day
- 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!
Writing this quick little update! My flight is around 3 so I don’t have much time for anything, but I thought I’d sit down and write about what’s going on.
So we are leaving for our trip today, we’ll be in Seattle tonight woohoo! Last night I packed for 2 hours (late) and seriously next time I’m packing 5 days in advance because that was stressful lol. Hopefully I packed everything I needed, if not then oh well I’ll buy it over there. Last weekend was crazy busy, we did yard work everyday. I’ll post some picture when I’m back to show how I redid the front flower box in front of our house. It took a lot of work, but it looks much better now. I think I can find a before pic somewhere, too.
I probably won’t blog at all during the next 5-6 days since I don’t think I’ll even have time to sit. I feel like we probably won’t even sleep forreal because there’s so much to do in so little time! So there will deff be a couple blog posts probably about each place we visit so I’m excited for that 🙂 right now I need to go take a quick body shower and get dressed because we leave to go to the airport in like 45 to an hour so I am running low on time.
Went to work this morning and then got back around 11 to work from home. Drinking a cup of coffee right now so I can get some energy because I can never sleep the day before a trip because of excitement. Just like first day of school back then in like middle school, was so excited the night before I couldn’t even sleep! Ah, I just got nostalgic lol. Reminding me of the days where we’d be waiting at the bus stop and it’s a little dewey outside early in the morning. Aw, miss those days!
Okay well really quick update, I’ll post photos maybe on my instagram.
See ya later! 🙂
I didn’t get much sleep last night and it really took a toll on my day/mood. So I drank some coffee and it helped a little bit, but I think I need some food in my system to give me real energy! I’m currently eating an apple and working on some user stories for work. Tonight I think we’ll both go to bed earlier because Mirhad got even less sleep than I did because he was studying all night -_-
On the other hand, 8 more days!!!!! I am starting to wrap stuff up for work so everything is good to go for next week. And I am slowly starting to put a list together for what I need to bring – this will take a while. I have the essentials of course, but since we’ve never done a trip like this, I don’t want to forget anything. I need to buy other things like a small bottle of dry shampoo because I know I can’t take that big one lol.
What else? Yesterday we deep cleaned the whole house except for one room (the storage room) so we’re tackling that this weekend. Hoping to put everything where it belongs and have it ready to be a guest bedroom. There is SO MUCH random stuff in there, maybe we can throw a bunch of it away. A lot of it is Mirhad’s clothes, maybe his winter clothes? Not sure, but we’ll do something with it. That room will be the hardest to deal with, but it needs to get done. Otherwise, everything else is so sparkly clean 😀 we even moved our bed around in our room and it changed everything. I went an got the night stands we’ve wanted and they’re so useful already.
Haven’t been able to blog all weekend. I started a post on Friday, but the weekend flew by and by the time I knew it – I didn’t even write one post 😦 New goal is to post once everyday, that way I can write my thoughts down too.
But yeah, that’s pretty much it. Going to go work on some stuff and then plan 🙂
So glad it’s Friday, it’s been a busy week and I am happy to relax a bit this weekend and get some stuff done that I should’ve gotten done a while ago lol. Hate the feeling of having something to do on your list and you just never get around to it… so annoying!!!
Mirhad and I made this chicken veggie thing in the crockpot and it didn’t turn out as good as it should’ve 😦 last time we made something with the crockpot, we had a bunch of chicken + potatoes… I think that’s what made it taste so good lol. So I guess we’ll have to through it out and try something else next time.
Mirhad woke me up at 6am this morning to wake up for work so I can help him with this idea he had so I’ve been up since 6 and working since 6:30. So I guess the good thing about this is that I can stop working around 2:30 😀
Today I have some stuff I need to get done, but I am just going to do them throughout the day. #1 is organizing my bills and seeing what’s left to pay. Sometimes being an adult sucks lol, I miss those days where I didn’t have to worry about utility bills 😦 oh well, I think it’s worth it!
But yeah, I’m trying to think of what else?? I really want to make that blog post today about what I need to buy/bring on our trip, I hope I can sit down today and just get started on that. It’ll help me later on so I don’t have to panic last minute and look for things I need.
One question…. WHY ARE HOTELS IN VEGAS SO DAMN EXPENSIVE?!??!?!? Like come onnnnn, this is way too overpriced! Ugh, I need to think of an alternative or get lucky and find something cheap. So I am currently on a hunt to find the best place, it’s only for one night so how hard can this possibly be lol.
Okay that’s it, rant over! Did I really rant tho?? Idk maybe lol.
See ya! 🙂
Happy Labor Day, do I even say that? Don’t know, but I said it anyways! A lot of people are off today and I am one of those people (thankfully). Feels nice to not have to go to work today and to have a shorter week. This week will be a rough one and I will be so happy on Friday when it’s all over lol. At least I get to work from home a lot of the days so that’s nice.
Have to clean the house today, this weekend has been crazy so everything is a mess, but until then I just want to chill out and relax a bit. We have to go grocery shopping today too.
22 more days until the trip!!! I even made a little widget that has a countdown for me, not that I need another one or anything 😀 I cannot wait to get out of here for a little bit, get away from all work related stress and just enjoy my time where I love to be the most with the person I love the most ❤ Since this is a trip that requires a bit more planning, I need to write a to do list + things I need to buy + things I need to pack. Thinking I may do that today or sometime this week if I have time.
This weekend was good, went out with my friends Saturday night and it was really fun. The bridal shower + wedding were fun, too. I am just so tired from this weekend lol. I need like a weekend to recover.
Going to go start writing those lists, see ya! 🙂
Happy Friday and Happy 3-day weekend for most of us! This 3-day is so much needed so I am super excited to be done with work soon and to start it already! 🙂 Work has been stressful and it got even more stressful today, so I am trying my best to stay calm and collected lol. I really wish I could do blogging/videos for a job, life would be so much better. Writing and creating stuff just lifts my mood and makes me feel great.
After work today, I have to go look for 2 dresses to wear to 2 events this weekend, a bridal shower and a wedding. I have another wedding to go to next weekend, think I might just wear a jumpsuit to that one (if it fits lol) so we have some shopping to do today.
I think tonight we’ll go out to a fancy dinner. We have been watching Master Chef since yesterday and have not been able to stop watching it, IT’S SO GOOD. Chef Gordan Ramsey is a BEASTTTTT. This show makes us so motivated to make good food so we’re excited to do this during keto and also after!
So Spotify just made this thing that if you have their premium or student account, you get Hulu AND Showtime for free included within the price of Spotify. Which is AWESOME because Hulu is great and we’ve never had Showtime and I know they have a bunch of great content. Binge watching here I come!!!! 🙂 Shoutout to Spotify!
I am going to make another post probably right after this, I didn’t make one when I said I would the other day and I was disappointed in myself. I really want to make a set schedule of when to blog and not just when I am working from home. Maybe every other day or something, it would just be at different hours. But for sure I got something for today 🙂
So my school is like taking away my free subscription for Adobe through them 😦 so I am going to have to find another alternative or see how much it is monthly or yearly because I really like their spark app. I wanted to learn photoshop and to also use their video editing app. We’ll see what happens, but I have until September 7th to keep using it!
Okay, that’s all! Talk to you soon!!! 🙂
I have had a tab open with a draft of a blog post about weekend getaways and planning which I never got around to finishing. On the bright side, we finally booked our weekend getaway for my birthday!!! We are going to Dallas, Texas!!!!!! The only time I’ve been to Texas was when I was traveling to Florida by plane and we had to stop for a connecting flight from Dallas. So I’ve only been at the airport which was a pretty cool airport tbh, so in that matter I am so excited to explore Dallas and see a little bit of what Texas has to offer 🙂
With that being said, have to do the obligatory “things to do in …” post so that will be coming very soon. I won’t be planning anything, I’ll just have a list of fun things and places to visit and places to eat of course, but this is a weekend getaway – no stress, just FUN!
Also, this is our first trip together as a married couple, alone. We went to Colorado back in May, but with family so this will be the very first one where it’s just us two, yay!
I’ve been thinking about the future a lot recently and I feel like I have so much faith in Mirhad, I think he can really do what he wants and accomplish his goals he is working really hard on right now. I know you’ll read this Mirhad, I just want you to know I believe in you. I know I don’t say it often, but I really do. YOU GOT THIS! ❤
But yeah I have been thinking about the future a lot and I have so much I want to do and so many goals to accomplish and I am so ready to tackle them. Lots of positive vibes lately and honestly it feels so nice. Wake up in the morning with a happy mood, even if I am tired, oh well. Change the mood, make yourself happy, wake yourself up, and accomplish some goals!!! Life is too short to not be doing what you want!!!
About to go to Ikea to get a book shelf.
See ya! 🙂
