Thing #1 — Attack my Monthly Bucket List!   My plan for today is to check a few items off my November Bucket List.   We’ve already purchased the turkey and all the trimmings to celebrate Thanksgiving.  I’ve also managed to get a few plans together to make Apple pie and Cherry Pie (hubby’s pick).  Pie crusts are in the fridge and I just need a recipe for the fillings.   Espresso day will not be hard to celebrate either…

  Thing #1 – Coffee Crush of the moment Happy Thursday all!   I’m going to be more mindful of hydration today, mostly because it’s easy to forget to drink water when it’s colder out.  For some reason, hot days make me crave a huge glass of ice water — but cold days don’t.  In fact, if I’m cold and chilly, the last thing I want is a tall glass of cold water!  I’d much rather sip on some coffee…

My life is still a series of lists… Behold my housework master list (rough draft).  Isn’t it gorgeous!??     The FlyLady is all about building routines, so I’ve also downloaded her free app to my phone and have set up morning and afternoon routines as well as a before bed routine.  I’m piloting them this week — then I’ll reflect/tweak and try again next week.     So far, I’ve had a clean sink EVERY NIGHT since mid last…

Thursday Things — Pumpkin Carving Challenge

Thursday Things — Pumpkin Carving Challenge

October is all about Scary Movies, Pumpkin Spice everything, and all things “sweater weather”.  October also means pumpkin carving and trick or treaters! This year, I’ve decided that hubby and I are going to do a “thing” — a pumpkin carving contest!   We’ve invited friends to join us — and they requested real rules to be written up.  So I have them below.   Who Carved it Better? Goal: Carve the best looking pumpkin this world has every seen…

Thursday things — my life in lists.

Thursday things — my life in lists.

I have a confession:  I’m a list maker… As I flipped through my bullet journal, I notice how many lists I make.  Each day, each week, and each month… lists and lists and lists.  Anyone else?   I guess I treat lists like a way to organize my brain dump and to be able to see what I’m dealing with.   My latest example of this is my Family’s Power Food List (it’s a personalized Simply Filling and Abs Diet…

September bucket list update!

Bucket List Update: As you can see, I’ve made some progress on my September bucket list!  With one week left, I do have some work to do.  This weekend, the plan is to hit up an apple orchard!   This way we can pick apples and have cider and donuts all in the same day! When we get home, we’re going to have to watch the Michigan vs Purdue football game and scratch another item off the list!   Notice…

I’ve gotta get a move on my bucket list! We’re two weeks into September and I only checked off one item from my list.  That’s a shame!  Some things are going to be easy to check off (Looking at you Guac Day and Coffee Day!)… other things are going to have to be scheduled in and purposefully accomplished.   Reading time Going to have to get some reading time in on my book — Notice how I wrote “Girl” when…

Thirsty Thursday Lives on! Remember this double wall insulated water cup?  It’s still going strong! I have noticed, in bringing it with me to the gym and back on the regular, that it’s not as “thermally insulated” as it’s been in the past.  The ice just seems to melt super quick — even now that the temperatures are less than 100.   Maybe it’s time for a new water jug/bottle?   Hubby has a Yeti mug for his milk/water/iced drink…

Thursday Things: Gloomy day = Forever selepy

Fall Weather This week has given us in NC a break from the horrible heat (100+ on the heat index with full humidity).  It actually feels appropriate that school is starting since the mornings are cooler!  It’s almost-maybe-fall-kinda….   Something about the nice weather had me itching for a run Monday — so I did it!  Then Tuesday I crushed a cardio workout at the Crossfit gym (tabata after tabata!)   Mid Week Fun with Friends = ALL THE Treats!…
