Before I get started with today's post, I'd like to direct your attention over to my sidebar. Are you looking? Great! You may or may not have noticed that I've created a reader survey and I'd love for you to take it. It's not very long I promise!

And now on to today's post!

Can you believe that image is made out of clay?!? Crazy right!! Looks so real! This past week was pretty relaxed, I drove out to Louisiana to visit my baby sister and had a blast!

I'm participating in Weekly Wishes with The Nectar Collective


// 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. 

Ahead...not so much, but definitely on track. This week's course load isn't heavy, so I can still work to get ahead. The weekend came and I just wanted to rest and rest some more! So I've pretty much decided what I'll be wearing on our honeymoon and I'll start shopping in a week or two, yay! Blah to the gym!! LOL! But I will be going back tonight, again I needed the rest! Sigh...I got wrapped up in making a soca and reggae list to make sure the DJ mixes it in with the other music that I didn't get this done. 


//Send wedding program information to the designer. Still so behind on this. I have to get this done ASAP.

//Order last of the items for the wedding day. Jimminy cricket! The wedding is right around the corner. If I want it here on time, this week is the latest I can order it. 

//Remind Aaron to get his stuff together to go get that marriage license. So I brought this up last week and of course he doesn't know where his papers are...*side eye*

//Send music list to the planner so she can forward to the DJ. I'm almost done, I just need to organize it so it makes sense. 

//Be up in the gym working on my fitness and eat clean..er. I'm thinking it's time to detox. I've had some fun these past few weekends, so it's time to get back on track. 

//Spring clean. I need to clean out my closet. I was just looking at it the other day and there's tons of stuff that I don't use, so it's time to do a big clean and give a lot of things away. 

//Get ahead in new course. This will probably be on my list for a while. I don't want to be scrambling at the end like I was last term, especially since this is my last course. 

//Get ready for 2nd dress fitting. The first one was great! The dress fit looser and I picked out my veil! This time I want to bring my jewelry with me so I can get an idea of the completed look. 

//Get wedding shoes cleaned. Yes. The new white shoes arrived with subtle stains. 

//Apply for jobs. It's really time to ramp up my search. I'm even looking for internships. If you have any suggestions, email me!

//Do something creative. I may try another sewing project or do some painting. 

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. Good luck this week! It sounds like the wedding planning is coming along. Good luck and best wishes this week!

  2. Good luck with all of your goals this week! I loved the last goal. Making time for something creative in your busy schedule is such a nice way to relax.

  3. WOW you have a lot on your plate. Good luck with your 2nd dress fitting, job applying and well, everything. Though, in reality you probably are going to need a lot of energy rather than luck so I send you good vibes! PS What's your wedding song going to be?
