Weekly Wishes: Back to…Normal? Editionfeatured

Weekly Wishes

I’m linking up with Melyssa at Nectar Collective today to share my wishes/goals for week. Join in!

Last week, the Giants won the World Series and we finally got some rain — and it was especially awesome because the rain came Friday and Saturday night, but Saturday and Sunday during the day were bright and clear and beautiful. So it was a good week. Plus I had my first super-long run of my training cycle yesterday and I more or less crushed it. WOOT.

Last Week’s Wishes

01 | figure out some photo/art/decor options for our walls
Ehh, not really. Honestly, with everything else that went down this week I completely forgot about it. And channeled my “creative energies” towards starting a scarf and picking out some patterns for a couple Christmas presents instead.

02 | watch the Giants win it all

03 | blog/website/editorial calendar organization
I updated my About page! And the sidebar. BABY STEPS PEOPLE.

04 | figure out Halloween costumes?
Nope. I wound up spending my Halloween kicking it with Onyx and getting confused about the trick-or-treaters who were out when it was still light out. And learning that San Diego apparently “doesn’t allow” trick-or-treating after dark. WTF?

This Week’s Wishes

01 | figure out some photo/art/decor options for our walls
I’m keeping this one. Still want to work on it.

02 | FINISH all the damn budget and financial stuff.
Now that it’s a new month and bills and rent have been paid, it’ll be a little easier to coordinate transferring funds and closing/opening accounts. And I just want to be able to stop thinking about it.

What are your goals this week?

The Nectar Collective



  • Yay for your team! P and I aren’t really huge sports fans so we don’t follow too closely, but we could hear people in our neighborhood yelling during the games 🙂 Our trick-or-treaters came after dark, maybe they didn’t get the memo? I was actually expecting them earlier in NC they usually come out EARLY. Best of luck on completing your goals!

    • Yeah, I saw a few out after dark, but when I took the dog for a walk (around 5:30 or so?) there were a ton of kids out! We don’t get any ourselves since we’re in an apartment building with very few kids.

  • Visiting from the linkup. I always love looking for artwork and thinking about decorating. 🙂 And no trick-or-treating after dark? That’s odd! I guess it might be considered safer though. There were a few kids out earlier than I expected them to be and I didn’t have enough time to close blinds, etc. and make the house look empty. I wasn’t feeling well this weekend and wasn’t into getting up to answer the door every time someone came to the house. Good luck with your goals this week!

  • Good luck on your goals this week! I need to get some art decoration for my walls too. *sigh. Your “About Me” is awesome! You did a great job! It’s all about baby steps!

    • Thank you! I’m really happy with how the About page turned out so it’s great to hear others like it!

  • Yay Giants!!! I’m still working on my blog calendar….can’t ever seem to get it started. Your about page looks great, love the look. Have a great week!
