Brain is fried, this is what you get...

Oh lovely Friday, how I have been waiting for you since Monday!
I'm so excited for this weekend. We're taking our son to a farm tomorrow and he is super excited about seeing cows and chickens and goats. He's hoping there will be tractors. I'm just hoping it doesn't rain. It has rained  EVERY. DAY. for almost 2 weeks.
Besides our wonderful outing tomorrow, I have a mile long to-do list, so that's what I'll be doing on Sunday. Darn it, I hate adult responsibilities.

In lieu of something truly thought provoking, I leave you with a tribute to the second best day of the week, (Saturday takes the top spot on my list!)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

5 for Five

I cannot believe it's Monday already. I feel like the weekend flew by and I got nothing done. I actually did get a lot done, but still.

I am linking up again with Jessica at Fantastically Average.

Last weeks goals -

1. Three Blog Posts - Major fail here, as the last post I did was last Monday. I did however update a page on my blog... does that count?

2. Finish reading 'The Time Traveler's Wife' - again, a fail. I read some more of it, but this book is so difficult for me to get into.

3. Make a bedtime chart for my son - Nope, didn't happen

4. Wake up on time each morning - this was a fail too :( (I'm noticing a trend here.)

5. Clean out my Yahoo Inbox - while I didn't completely clean out my inbox, I was able to delete over 500 messages. So it is a partial win, I am cleaning it out.

Hopefully my goals for this week will be a bit more successful...

1. Three Blog Posts - yes, I am going to try this again.

2. Start a different book - I'm going to put the 'Time Traveler's Wife' aside for a bit and read something else. I recently purchased a bunch of books at the flea market and hopefully I can get into some of them.

3. Contine cleaning out my Yahoo Inbox - I have made some progress, so why not continue making more.

4. 101 of my Favorite Songs - This is on my 101 in 1001 list, I started it this weekend and I want to finish it this week. It's not as difficult as one might think.

5. Wake up on time each morning - Ha! I love a real challenge.

I have a couple of easier goals in there, guaranteeing myself some success. It's like taking the easy classes in school, knowing you'll pass and get your GPA up.
I hope everyone has an amazing week, mine has started off really well!

5 for Five

Today seems like such a let down of a day, after all the fun we had last week. But Monday has come, and we must make our way through it.

Once again, I did not particpate last week, so I have no results to share. I will be trying my best to report back next week with an update and new goals for the week. I really enjoy this link up with Jessica at Fantastically Average. Anything to make myself accountable for something is good, I say.

1. Three Blog Posts - I am aiming for 3 blog posts this week. And not just answers to link-ups, as I have done. Three good, quality posts.

2. Finish reading 'The Time Traveler's Wife' - I started it the other day and I'm having a little trouble getting through the first few chapter's. I'm hoping that the book will suck me in at some point. Unfortunately, the reviews are a bit split on the book.

3. Make a bedtime chart for my son - I've been having a lot of trouble putting my son to bed. We literally fight for two hours every night until he finally passes out. And normally he's in tears or in my bed. This is not what I want. So I want to make a chart that tells him what steps we will take every night.

4. Wake up on time each morning - i.e. not hit the snooze button 15 times. I have my alarm set for 5, which is what time I need to get up to do everything I need to do in the morning (yoga, shower, dressed with hair and makeup done, make lunch, get to work on time). I normally roll out of bed around 6:15.

5. Clean out my Yahoo Inbox - over 5000 unread messges? 'Nuff said.

I hope I have a successful week and you do as well!

Sunday Social 7/7/13

Happy Sunday everyone! I can't believe it's Sunday and tomorrow starts a normal, full week at work (sigh). I did work last Monday and Friday, with three days off in the middle. But c'mon, even as adults, when we know we're only working one day, we really don't work.

Any whoooo, I'm linking up with Neely and Ashley for a Sunday Social. Hope you all enjoy!

This week's topic is about travelling, something I haven't done too much of.

1. What is the best trip you’ve ever been on? - The best trip I have been on was in 2003 to southern California. I went to visit my boyfriend at the time, a Marine who was stationed at Camp Pendleton. I had never been to southern California and completely FELL. IN. LOVE.

2. What is your best idea for a girls weekend trip? - I think a trip to the Key West is the best idea for a girls weekend trip. It's not far from where I live and there's a variety to do. There's water sports for the active girls, shopping for the shoppers and debauchery for everyone else.

3. What is your best idea for a couples trip? - A place neither of you have ever been, while staying in a small bed and breakfast. If neither of you have been there, then neither of you have a 'favorite' thing to see/do. You can explore your destination together.

4. What is the best vacation on the cheap? - A staycation. 

5. What is the place you most want to visit? - I have never been to Italy and would love to go there. The truth is, I don't have much desire to travel, but I would love to travel around Italy. 

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
