Weekly Wishes #28

Happy Monday!!
I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
I went to the Penelope Lane Botique with Raewyn, which was pretty fantastic! It's always exciting to see Etsy shops IRL. Aside from that, my weekend was adventure free, which is a-okay. Although, I did purchase some really delicious pineapples at a really great price and I passed the Candy Crush level I've been trying to beat since last October (not joking) SO...that's enough excitement to get me through the week!

Sunnies not included. 
Any who, I can't believe the first week of June has come and gone. I just can't wrap my head around how quickly time is flying. We're getting married in EIGHT MONTHS. Holy crap. This week I'd like to focus my time and energy on fun, creative projects as well as quiet moments to myself. There are few things I can do in regards to our wedding for now, so I'm going to savor this for a while and not focus so much on anything wedding related-at least this week!

This Weeks Wishes/To-Do List:
1. Go to a coffee shop and blog. I've been in a bit of a blogging slump, probably because I leave blogging to the end of the day when I'm already really burnt out. Sometimes a change of scenery is all you need to feel a little more inspired. Also, I like coffee so duh. 
2. Make/send out our engagement party invites. I know, I know, I just said I was going to limit wedding thoughts...but in my defense, I really like making stuff so this will be fun for me! 
3. Run every day. Andy and I did quite a bit of running last week and I absolutely loved it! I used to run all the time, but after my diagnosis I just stopped for no reason. It's really fun though, so I'm excited to make it my routine again.
4. Set a bed time for myself. I always say I'm going to start going to bed earlier, but earlier for me means like midnight... which isn't actually that early. This week I'm going to force myself to go to bed between 10:30-11:00 because there's really nothing I need to be doing past that time.
5. Go to the beach! 
6. Make some lemonade. It's basically Summer and I have yet to make homemade lemonade! WHY?? 
7. Visit a few vintage stores for some cute teacups for our blogger tea party! I'm so excited for this! Have you purchased your ticket yet??? 

What are your goals for the week?
Linking up with: Melyssa for Weekly Wishes

  1. I love little coffee shops. They have the magic to get those creative juices flowing.
    Good luck with your goals this week. May you have loads of blog inspiration.

    1. Coffee shops are definitely fun! Especially little hole in the wall ones! Have a great week :)

  2. Yaayyy another PLL fan!! These seem like great wishes, and what a fun link up! I will have to check it out for next week :)

    1. It's a really fun linkup! Also, SO excited for PLL!!!!

  3. Wait! Your getting married in 8 months?? What's your date? I'm getting married in 8 months! How did I miss this!
    I love blogging in a coffee shop! Change in environment is so much fun! Except than I get easily distracted by people watching!
    What are you doing for your engagement party?? I have never been to one... it's not something I'm familiar with currently.
    Be sure to share your lemonade recipe!
    Have a fantastic week!

    1. YES! We're getting married February 28th! When's your date?? Hooray for our weddings!!! Also, no one in my family has ever had an engagement party, but Andrew's side is accustomed to that so we're having one. We're just having both our families and our bridal party over for lunch and mingling!

  4. I looove coffee shop blogging. I did a little this morning. Omgosh, maybe if I don't work on Friday we can do that aaand vintage shopping! I want to get a beach trip in this week, too.

  5. I still haven't made it into a coffee shop to blog - it's on my list of things to do. Wedding related to-do's will always make their way onto your list until you get married!! The beach is on my weekly wishes too! Best of luck accomplishing your goals this week!

    1. Haha, I've noticed that wedding related things pop up even when I try not to think about them! Have a great week!

  6. Goals for the week...I need to buy a jogging stroller so I can start running again. :) I signed myself up for a 5k in less than a month and I might not make it even if I walk if I don't start training soon...

    I love your pineapples with the sunnies! Such a cute fun picture. I have gotten so far behind on PLL. They need to put another season on netflix! But then I would accomplish nothing for a few days and watch the entire season...

    I found you through the peacoats and plaid link up. My name is Jessica and I go by Jess too, so I had to check out your blog :)


    1. Ah! Good luck with training for a 5K! You should download the app Couch to 5K. I've heard it's really great. They just put season 4 of PLL on Netflix this morning btw! Thanks for stopping by to say hello, Jess :)
