weekly wishes

 How was everyone's weekend?  
A friend of ours was in town from Richmond, VA.  His girlfriend is the head girls soccer coach for VCU and were in town playing Pitt so him and I met up for dinner and happy hour before the game.  VCU was not supposed to win but they did.  I must admit, I was a bit torn on who to root for.  I am glad VCU won since they came all of that way (and because my friend's girlfriend is the coach) but still sad  to see the home team lose. 
Saturday I spent the morning running/walking with Barb for our weekly work-out then came back home and snuggled in bed while I got the blog prepared for the week.  Saturday night the husband and I met up with our friend and to listen to him play at a bar.  I have not seen him play before so it was nice to finally be able to do so. 
We didn't get to bed until late Saturday night so I didn't get out of bed on Sunday until 11.  It was lovely. 

crochet: I would like to work on a few rows here and there throughout the week. I am single crocheting my way to make a giant blanket for our couch.  It will take a lot of time but with football games and Harry Potter to watch I am sure I will have plenty of time to work on it.
gym: workout at the gym three times this week. only made it twice. 
gift: print off quote for my sister for her Christmas gift.  made the quote. just need to find a place to print it off.  any suggestions?

track: I need to get back on track tracking MFP.  As much of a pain in the ass it is to keep up with it does hold me accountable.  Thanks for the reminder Samantha.
gift: order prints for my Mom for her Christmas gift.
list: Making a packing list for our trip to State College this weekend to visit with my SIL and her boyfriend.
lunges: be able to do at least two sets of 10 lunges at the gym.  I forgot how hard these are when your not used to them.

What are your goals for the week?
How did you do last week?

Linking up with Melyssa, LisaMolly, Elizabeth, Meg, and Leeann today!

  1. lunges are of the devil. They hurt my knees so I consider myself exempt from them.. I do pushups instead and hate life equally, lol. :)

  2. Ugh, lunges, so painful! Same with squats, but both give you killer results if you stick with them! I have GOT to get back on a regular workout schedule!

  3. Found your blog on monday morning gossip. Love that you set goals for yourself! I totally need to do that. Also, saw your post about Peru. I was fortunate to spend a semester there in college. You definitely need to go! Macchu Picchu is a must-do for a bucket list!

  4. Good luck with your goals this week! I highly recommend mpix.com for your printing needs. I also need to get back on MFP!

  5. One of my weekly wishes is to get on track with MFP as well - it's so easy to stop doing it, but then before I know it, I'm back to eating super unhealthy again! :( Good luck to both of us haha :)

  6. I want to learn to crochet so I can make my own blankets too! I've been toying with the idea for awhile but I think it might be time to actually follow through. Hobby Lobby here I come!


I love hearing from y'all. Comments are my favorite!
