And now on to today's post!

It's Monday again people! I AM BEYOND EXHAUSTED!! I had a blast this past weekend and I'm so thankful for my sisters and friends who made this weekend so special. I'm also starting my last class today, YAY!! 

I'm participating in Weekly Wishes with The Nectar Collective


// Finish this term of grad school strong and prepare for new class that starts next Monday. I have a few more things to do before class is officially over, but it shouldn't be a big deal and cause me any grief. AND I'm going to TRY to be proactive and get some work done for my new class so I'm always one step ahead. We'll see...

// Start working on a project I want to complete in time for my bridal shower.  So, I'm thinking this will get started on Tuesday night and be finished by Wednesday night, we'll see though.

// Continue looking for honeymoon attire. I'll start making purchases in a few weeks. I'm notorious for packing way too much, so the goal is to pick a color palette so that I can make multiple outfits out of several pieces and not take my whole house with me!

//Continue to eat clean and make it to the gym after work. Still going strong! It takes 30 days to form a habit right? I'm also starting the 300/30 Ab Challenge (gulp!!).

//Create quote for potential client. Things are moving slowly but surely! I've expressed my desire to work for myself more than once, so ya'll know it's super important to me. I also need to work on my plan for growth. I'll definitely have more time this term since I have one course and the wedding is almost here, so wedding planning has slowed. 

//Reflect on yesterday's post. I had a super tough week at work last week...really for a while, but it was bad last week. I need to figure out how to "Let Go and Let God". Sometime's I'm really good at it and sometimes I'm not so good. 

//Have a blast at my bachelorette party and bridal shower. I can't believe it's here! My sister has started sending me daily videos for the week - she started sending them yesterday. She is a major goof ball! I've also gotten an itinerary for what to wear lol! I'm so excited!!

So the last week of school wasn't nearly as easy as I thought it would be! It was a big deal to finish those last few things. But, I did it, it's over and now I'm in my final class yay! I've even started working on the coursework for my final class. Can you believe I was doing homework during my brief down times during my bachelorette party and bridal shower weekend? Crazy right, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. That stinking project...I was up until 6:30am trying to complete it. It was a bust, but I'm going to continue trying to get it done. The diagrams were the hardest for me to figure out, and I really do need a room for all things creative and crafty. One day. I did end up purchasing several going out dresses as an option for this past weekend so now they are all coming with me on the honeymoon -so my color scheme by default are bold colors (think, fuchsia, teal, yellow), white, black and gold. Eating clean went out the window once Friday got here, but I didn't go crazy! I have personal training tonight, so I've been drinking water like crazy since yesterday. Quote is on hold until I return from my honeymoon. The client seems committed, so I'm still excited about it! I did do some reflecting on last Sunday's post and there are definitely some areas where I need to grow. I also need to really focus on what I want to do so I can start making specific requests to God. I've realized I'm all over the place. Anyone else do this? And I most definitely had a fantabulous time at the bachelorette party and bridal shower, I'll be sharing photos here soon!


// Get ahead in new courseI started my new course today. I looked at the syllabus and realized that I have some major assignments due the week of the wedding and honeymoon. So my goal is to get a head start on everything this term so I'm not pulling my hair out later.

// Continue looking for honeymoon attire. I've picked out my color scheme by default due to bachelorette festivities so that will make it easier to shop now! Still waiting until mid April to make any other purchases. 

//Continue to eat clean and make it to the gym after work. Last week wasn't so hot. I ended up skipping the gym to deal with school work and that ab challenge...I started it and then I stopped LOL! IT'S SO HARD!!! But, I don't have too much to do this week so I'll be back to working out and I'll attempt to start that ab challenge again. 

//Send wedding program information to the designer. So behind on this. But since things aren't as hectic for me anymore, I need to get this done this week. 

Best of luck accomplishing all of your goals this week! And, if you're anything like me, you should consider linking up with Melyssa for Weekly Wishes. They don't have to be weekly-they can fit your schedule however you see fit!


  1. EGGS WITH KNIT HATS! I DIE! When you say eat clean do you mean healthy or are you doing a detox? Anyhow, hope you kick some ass at the gym and get all your wedding stuff accomplished! PS HAVE A GREAT BACHELORETTE PARTY!

  2. Healthy, but I am planning on doing a detox soon. And by healthy I mean mostly veggies and fruits, lean protein. I LOVE bread and I'm trying to cut back. And my bachelorette party was AWESOME!!

  3. Hi Kerzra... first off I want to say I adore your blog! I'm loving the simplicity. Great goals! In reference to being all over the place... I do that too. I feel like I have a huge handful of things going on all at once and I have bits of attention here and there. I've gotten really serious about to-do lists and planning time to get the things done that are on the list. it's helped a little bit and I don't feel like I'm as all over the place. I also think it takes patience with yourself. Congrats on working with a personal trainer! That's what I do for a living so it makes me happy when I hear people who utilize a trainer to better their health. Keep up the good work! Looking forward to how your week goes! <3 :)

  4. Wow, sounds like you have a lot planned! I love that you are planning your honeymoon attire, so much fun!

  5. It sounds like your goals are fun for the week + good luck achieving everything!

  6. I'm glad your goals seemed to have lessened this week! I especially wish you luck on getting ahead in your class so that you can enjoy your wedding and honeymoon to its fullest extent!

  7. LOL-yes, I plan everything!

  8. So much wedding stuff, SO EXCITING!!!!

  9. You've managed to pack a lot in, I'm impressed! Good luck with the ab challenge, it certainly sounds hard! Visiting from Weekly Wishes link up - have a great week & good luck with your goals :-)

  10. I know!! It will feel weird when the planning process is over!

  11. Yeah, I'm a little surprised I got so much done last week. It was a little stressful though, so hopefully I don't have a week like that for a while! Thanks for the well wishes!


I read all comments and will reply as well! Thank you so much for your comment!
