weekly wishes

ok, now that i got my monthly goals out of the way, time to think about how i want this week to go.

i concentrated on my calendar today and really looked at what my commitments were for the week and where i had time to schedule things.

workouts: dance class - mon, tues, sat.
                 run - happys running club wed, 5k sat

woah...saturday is gonna be a busy day with the 5k and dance class, but it should be fun!

reading - well today i had the day off, and i dedicated it to being lazy, so there's was lots of time to read and i'm almost done with one of the books on my list, although it helps that is sucks and is an easy read and i just want to be done with it.

since i have so much acitivity planned in the evenings i'm hoping to concentrate my lunch breaks on my reading, and that should help get my 50 pages each day.

cooking - this week is way less hectic than past weeks, with a lot more days with evening time to actually make a meal! so tonight i'm making pasta and roasted cauliflower. and that should be enough for leftovers for the next couple of days. not sure what i want to bake this week, so i'm still thinking about that one, but i hope to dedicate my sunday to whatever it is i decide on.

as for tslowing down...ha. well today was a good day for that. in fact, this past weekend has been a lot of that. which was much, much needed after last week. last week there was not a single day that i got home before 10pm. but no complaints! i had fun! just ready to slow down this week. i took monday off for that very reason. to just rest and rejuvenate. other than workouts i don't have anything else schedulde until friday, so i think that will be good for the slow down department. even if it's just coffee and a book in the bywater before dance class.

ok, now that's all out, time to cook. and do some laudry. :)

november!

i love the beginning of the month! a fresh start!

and fall. and my birthday month and thanksgiving!! it's the best month!

october was crazy. a very hectic month. so much fun. but at the same time i feel like i was so busy i missed being able to really enjoy the month. the fall. the spirit of the holiday. so that's what my goal for this month is. time to slow down a bit. enjoy my favorite things. i love fall so much. the colors. the cooler weather. hoodies and boots and scarves. books and candles and curling up under blankets and reading all day.

that's how i'm spending today. i feel a bit under the weather, so i made a wellnes tea. and then coffee :) and then blankets and books and a candle is lit. it finally got cooler in new orleans. a 30 degree temperature drop makes it feel like winter. So this 55 degrees is terrible. LOL. and probably a bit to do with why i feel under the weather.

along with spenging this month slowing down a bit i also want have some other me focused goals. i'dlike to read at least 50 pages a day. i'd really like to do a 100 but that may be too much, so at least 50. And with that goal i'd like to get through 4 books this month. 1) Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid, 2) Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma 3) Allegiant by Veronica Roth 4) Blue Lily, Lily Maggie Stiefvater

kitchen! i would really like to be in the kitchen more this month, whether just actually making dinner-something simple, or baking which i love to do, although am not very good at. i love oollecting recipes but i never get a chance to plan to make anything, so that's a goal this month as well.

and lastly, as always, workouts. i started taking dance classes last month and i love it. it's the first time i've ever really made workouts a priority because i LOVE the classes so much. i find myself looking forward to them. i always go tuesday and saturdays but i'd like to make a point to try a few more of the classes - see if i love the salsa class as much as i LOVE the hip hop class. and then i also want to start going to running club more. every wednesday the bar near my work hosts running club and the run a 3 mile route - usually down bourbon street - and it's fun. it also challenges me to run harder and faster than i do on my normal workouts. plus this month i signed up for 2 5K's- one next saturday and then the turkey trot on thansgiving day with my sis and nephew. pretty excited! and it keeps me motivated to keep my runs a priority.

ok. monthly goals down. let's see how this goes. :)

on my way home this evening i passed a billboard along the 10 that made me so angry, that was just such a bald faced lie, that i had to stop and take a minute to share. it said: "planned parenthood = more abortions".

regardless of your stance, whether you're pro life, pro choice, pro...i don't know, pro alligator...that's fine with me, but please, please at least do your research. planned parenthood is is a non-profit organization providing reproductive health and maternal and child health services. they are the largest US provider of reproductive health services, including cancer screening, HIV screening and counseling, contraception, and yes, abortion. But, wait for it....contraception accounts for 35% of their services and abortion accounts for 3%. They are actually trying to PREVENT you from getting to the point of needing an abortion.

Also...FYI...even if you wanted to, in the state of Louisiana you can't get an abortion at Planned Parenthood clinics anyway.

stepping off my soap box now, i apologize if i offended anyone.

HIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!

just a very quick drive by update! i officially made in to NOLA. i love it already. my bff is here with and it's just absolutely amazing. 

my apartment has had no power due to the timing of the request and hurricane isaac and hurricane sandy (don't even ask) but allegedly i will have power today. 

kyle has been a total sweetheart and letting me stay with him. it's so amazing to be able to see him daily and actually hang out. 

apartment is super super small and kinda dingy, due to being so old, but i love it. i think once i get power and can start decorating it i will make it a very nice home. 

started job today at my new office and i still love it. all my coworkers are so nice and awesome.

ok...back to work. i promise a real update soon.

life almost can't get any better. 

Allen Stone and Fitz and the Tantrums tomorrow night at Capitol Hill Block Party. 
Dirty Dozen Brass Band on August 5th
AND...just found out Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings will be at BumberShoot on Sept 2nd. 

seriously if you ever get the chance to see Sharon Jones live you need to go. IMMEDIATELY! she is the most amazing performer ever. just...seriously...AMAZING. she will not let you down. i promise. even if you don't love jazz...just go. 

i have to go see Allen and Fitz by myself which seriously depresses me. but it'll be worth it. i've been dying to see allen, and i saw fitz at coachella and they were amazing so definitely want to see them again. 

max greenfield got an emmy nom?! happy happy days!

i officially booked my flight for new orleans in september. (well half booked it). let the countdown begin! (7 weeks as kyle just informed me!)

and i have been slacking in my askars love.
