Happy Monday everyone! I'm probably a little cheerful for a Monday, but it's for a good reason. I'm feeling especially creative these days and I'm going to ride this wave for as long as it wants to last. I must admit something to you... I've been cheating on Blogger with WordPress! I know..  I know..  Oh! The horror.. I see a ton of blogs as well as websites hosted through there, so I figured why not check it out. I'm not moving or anything (yet), but I have started another blog for writing short stories. Here's a little excerpt. 

"Her hands were cold. The kind of cold that seems to seep way down deep. Deep into your

veins, your blood, and your bones and encompass your whole being. Vie despised the cold and had immediately ordered a cup of black coffee when she sat down at the small cafe. No sugar and no cream. She liked things classic and simple. It’s the way she preferred to dress herself and to live her life. As Vie bounced her crossed legs and sat looking out of the window of the cafe, she contemplated leaving even though she had just gotten there no more than ten minutes ago.

Things could get very ugly if she did. Complications could ensue and that would threaten the Classic & Simple life motto that Vie wanted to live by. It was just one complication really. His name was Claudio Ubenski."

Last Weeks Wishes 

* Research Colleges - Okay so, I did research some schools. I however didn't get any further that I already was. I really wanted to find a school that would work for me and one that I could go tour and sit down and speak with a counselor. So I'm going to keep on looking and in the meantime I'll be taking some internet training courses. 

* Food Prep - I totally nailed this one! I'm actually pretty proud of myself for this one, especially since I'm a procrastinator extraordinaire. I chopped, bagged, and set out items I needed ahead of time. It came in handy, because I woke up 30 minutes late one day, but because I did that prep I didn't have to scramble to be on time for work. I've even started picking out my clothes the night before. It saves SO MUCH time in the morning. Yay!

* Send Packages - I finally finally finally got this one done!! It feels good knowing that that is done. I literally gave an exhale of relief when I left the post office! I've also sent off a letter to my pal and two greeting cards. I'm on a roll folks!

This Weeks Wishes
* Write! - I know I've had this one on the list before, but now it's for the new short story I'm working on. I'm really digging the vibe it gives and I've gotten positive feedback so far. Feel free to tell me what you think too! :o)
* Complete a Crochet Project - I've been working on a couple sparkle babies as of late and I can't seem to finish any of them. I keep frogging the project and redoing it in an attempt to make it better. I just found a new pattern that I'm going to try and I hope it's easy enough to understand. Wish me luck!
* Blog Prepping - I really want to start writing my blog posts before the day I need to post them! I've just got to bite the bullet and decide that I'm going to start writing on a certain day and time. Like right now... I'm at work in the break room, trying to finish this up. Crazy. (pause for time elapsed) Now I'm at home really finishing. Got to do better!

So these are my wishes for this week and I'm excited about them! Is that weird to say? Ever since I started writing them down on a Post-It, it has made all the difference in me getting them done and remembering what they are. Speaking of exciting, if you missed the last Pinterest Food Challenge, then you can still participate this week and the weeks to come! I've decided to make this a weekly event (I will be posting on Wednesdays) and the challenge is to cook something from your pin board that you've been telling yourself you're going to cook and you just haven't. Take pictures of the process and the meal, write a blog post about it, and then you can add your link to the Link Up and share it with the world! And let's be honest here.. Who doesn't love to self-promote their blog? :)

That is all for now friends! Have a great week and good luck on your weekly wishes!



  1. Hi there! Visiting from The Nectar Collective Weekly Wishes linkup. I started teaching myself to crochet last fall but got caught up in wedding planning + grad school. I have a project I started sitting in my crochet bag as I type this. I'm hoping to pick it back up soon. I'd love to see what you're hoping to create. Getting in the swing of blogging consistently + sticking to an editorial calendar can be a bit challenging in the beginning, but it gets easier when you buckle down and is so worth it! Best of luck with your goals this week!

    1. Yay, for teaching yourself crochet! I love crocheting and YouTube is my best friend when it comes to finding new stitches. As far as blogging consistently goes, I think it will be helpful to actually write everything down as to what I want to do. Glad to know it'll get easier. :) Thanks for visiting and have a great rest of the week!
