My 2019 Vision Board!

Hi all!

I finally got around to finishing my vision board and it’s not the very best, but it’s perfect for me! This time I just put a bunch of pictures/quotes that will motivate me for this year. Last year, I had a lot of pictures of my husband/family and random things, but this way is better.Β

Here’s my vision board – I won’t go through each one, but I’ll explain some of them.

Let’s start from the top. A lot of those are about calmness and mindfulness which is something I’d love work on a lot this year. The picture of the woman is about me wanting nicer skin and getting better with my makeup skills. And of course I added something about my husband because he is #1 πŸ™‚ As you can see there are a couple things on here about him!Β 

In the second row, I have a picture of the Kindle which explains me wanting to read more this year. I can happily say that I have read SO much since I have gotten it! Family of course is important so I had to add something about that in here! We are planning to go to NYC this summer, so I added a picture of Central Park in there. And the last one I will mention in this row is the quote, “No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.” I often get discouraged when I attempt to make some food that I’ve never made before or sometimes even food I’ve made multiple times and it doesn’t turn out the way I thought it would. This is a great quote because it’s true, I will get better with time!Β 

The third row is just all quotes, so I’ll pick 2-3 that stand out right now. I really want to get rid of any clutter and just make our living space very simple. The picture with Pooh says, “sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” This is referring to my niece and nephew πŸ™‚ And the last one I will mention in this row is the very first quote, life really is precious.

In the fourth row, I have the state of California map because it is one of the best states in my opinion and this map shows a lot of cool places to visit in CA! The woman in the bikini is my fitness goal and it’s very realistic for my body type since I don’t want abs or anything muscular. I feel like I could achieve this in 2019. I used to find really fit people with abs and make them my motivation, but it was too unrealistic and would take YEARS to happen. The picture of the palm trees and beach is a very special place in my heart πŸ™‚ ❀ And the last one is about working out, eating well, and being patient. I’m not patient enough and this is a good reminder to be!

And for the last two sections, I’ll just talk about 4-5 of them. I added a couple things about traveling because that’s what I’m most looking forward this year and there is a picture in Disney Land because we are planning to go there! The pictures are because I want to take lots and lots of pictures going forward, that is the best way to remember good memories. I NEED to drink more water daily, it’s a huge struggle for me, but I am going to make it a habit. The picture of the hair is because I want long, healthy hair. And the last one I will mention is the plant, I want more plants in my house because plants give off good energy and fresh air.

There you have it, my 2019 vision board! I tried to be as realistic as possible and I think I can for sure accomplish most, if not all of these goals on my board.

Did you make a vision board for 2019? What are your top three things on there? πŸ™‚

Target Finds!

Hi all!

Went to Target the other day and found some goodies in the $5 and less section and let me tell ya I have been SLEEPING on this section!!!! Why didn’t I look here before?! Well, now I know and will be checking more often.

I was so inspired by this YouTube video where this lady goes to Target and finds all of these cute items, and that’s when I thought of the idea of making a coffee/cocoa bar. I was able to grab a few things for it and also something to start my picture collage in our bedroom. Since we moved our dining room set into the corner of our living room, we have this partially empty den and don’t know what to do with it yet. We know we want to add two sofa chairs or a couch eventually, but the space is a little awkward because we have that pretty window that goes out a bit. So it’s tough to set up two couches there which is why I think two nice sofa chairs would look good there. We also moved our living room table here. The goal of this den is for it to be a space where we can unplug, drink coffee, and read or talk. With no electronic distractions. Which is why I think it’s essential the coffee bar is perfect.

I bought two pieces of decoration to hang right above the bar.

I think it looks super cute and much better than before. The next things I want to find at Target are these glass jars that come with scoops. I’d love to put cocoa and marshmallows in two of them and sit them on the table next to the coffee machine. I also went this tier basket so I can use that to add some stuff in like cocoa mugs and make a few other decorations.

For our bedroom, I found this really cute 3 piece picture set which I will put in the middle of the pictures we already have in our room. It’s pretty empty in general, only one side has pictures. I still have some picture I want to print out, but I need to buy bigger frames since I want to make those a little bigger than the rest.

Update: Put these two pictures up, I think it looks adorable!

Hoping to go to another Target this week to see if they have anything the others didn’t. Hopefully I can find more of what the lady had in her YouTube video. There was a really cute picture that would be perfect for the kitchen. The quote said, “the dishes can wait… life won’t.” I thought that was sooooo cute! There was also this cute home sign, so I am super excited to go see what the other Target has!

Stay tuned for more Target finds and more of my home updates! πŸ™‚

Good morning!

It is a BEAUTIFUL day!!!! It’s 69 degrees right now and by today it’s supposed to be 76 degrees!!!!!!!! OMG, hello Spring!!! ❀ ❀ ❀ It feels great, I opened up all of the windows in my room and am drinking some coffee! Right when the weather gets as nice as this, my mood instantly increases even if I didn’t have enough sleep – which I did, I got a good 9 hours of sleep for the 2nd night in a row!

Adisa texted me and said our class might be cancelled, which I would love because this weather is too nice to be sitting inside of a class today. If she does cancel, then I’m going to sit outside and work on my assignment for marketing and then read a good book. Times like this makes me wish I had a hammock to lay on outside hahaha. Deff going to make one in our house, we have to.

Later after Mirhad gets out of class, we are going to take Medina and Bracan to Sky Zone. I’m so excited bc we’ve never gone with them so it’ll be fun! Can’t wait to see Bracan jumpΒ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

OMG I totally forgot, I’m getting my braces off March 20th!!!! I have a last check-up appointment in 3 weeks and then that leaves 2 weeks til the 20th which is when they will be coming off!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I’m so excited! I’ve been waiting for this day for over 2 years hahaha.

I’m about to do this journaling post for this Kindness Practice I signed up for and email it to Niki who is in charge of it! And then going to write in my weekly journal thing I got at Marshal’s.

Hopefully after I drop off Mirhad at school, I will know if class is cancelled so I can go home and not get ready for school. 🀞🏼

But yeah, that’s it for now. See ya laterrrrr!

Self Love Challenge Day 13

Well, I did take a selfie and I look crazy because I’m sick. But if I have to find one thing I love about it, it’s my dimples. Even though I’m not smiling, they still show through, which is something I love about this selfie.Β 

Here’s a cute picture I found about dimples:

So I guess I have a role in life and it’s to smile.. alright I can do that!!! πŸ™‚Β 

Self Love Challenge Day 11

I would describe myself as shy, but kind. When you first meet me, I’ll 100% be shy, probably too shy to introduce myself correctly. But as time passes, you will find that I am a caring and funny (sometimes) person. I get along with everyone and as long as you respect me, I’ll respect you! πŸ™‚

Good morning!!!!

Happy Tuesday πŸ˜€ I’m in a great mood, got good sleep. Going to get a lot of stuff done today πŸ™‚ about to update my planner with the things I need to do today. I am struggling hard with my financial management material, so I have to go extra hard at trying to learn it so I know it well for the test, ugh 😦

Think I will maybe give out some of the invitations to my bridal shower today or tomorrow, like half and the other half another day. Honestly, I just want to send them out so I don’t have to worry about doing it later, since school piles up on you like no other!!!

Why is coffee sooo good??? It just tastes so amazing and it is such a needed thing in the morning for me, it gives me an extra boost and it tastes good! I put this vanilla creamer with a latte foaming thing – SUPER good.

I really can’t wait until next week is done with so I’m over all of these exams lol. Oh yeah, we booked a hotel for my bachorlette so that’s exciting. I’m excited for that, just going to hangout with my friends and have some fun. Not doing anything crazy, wish spas were cheaper so we could all go hahaha. But at least they have hella good food where we’re going.. lots of good placesΒ πŸ˜‹

I need to find some time in between this studying to write down some wedding venues I’m interested in so we can choose one. I really want to do something different, but I don’t want it to be too expensive since I’m not paying for it our parents are. I’ll see what I can find soon πŸ˜€

Ummm, yeah that’s pretty much it for now. Gotta post my self love challenge later today.

See ya!

Self Love Challenge Day 9

3:27 PM

Something in my life I need to get rid of is negativity and listening to gossip. Neither are good for anyone’s health in that matter, but why should I care about some stupid gossip? Not worth my time when I could be doing something more useful like learning or blogging for an instance. And the negativity is a hard one to get rid of, but I have been better at being more positive. Being negative about everything just ruins your mood and the mood of others around you. Be positive, be happy.Β
