Baby Shower and Back to School Goals
Hi friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Today is my last day at home…I fly back to Boston tomorrow. I want to thank you all for your great comments on my second vlog about my experience with disordered eating…I was once again blown away by all of the nice things you guys had to say!
Yesterday, my mom and I went to my cousin Whitney’s baby shower! It was so fun, and she got so many cute things :).
The cake was chocolate with white icing, and it was delish!
They had Hershey’s bars covered with shower information…so cute!
The mom-to-be 🙂
Whitney and I!
She got so many awesome presents that included a bunch of books, super cute clothes, a stroller, bottles, bedding, a car seat and lots more!
And my other cousin’s (Amber, the pretty redhead sitting on the fireplace) child, little Ben, was really excited about one of the gifts!
He even tried to take it for himself…what a cutie pie 🙂
I’m so sad that I won’t be in town when Whitney has little baby Cael! I’ll just have to visit them lots when I come back home in May!
I’m not generally a person that likes to set goals. Usually I just forget about them or I end up being too hard on myself and get frustrated. However, there are a few things that I really want to work on when I head back to school. One of them is fitness related, another is food related, and the last one is finance related.
My fitness goal is to do some ab work 5 days a week. I generally only work my abs on days that I lift weights, but I would like to see if working them more will help add some definition!
My food-related goal is to try 1 new recipe a week. I sort of fell off the cooking bandwagon the month before winter break and I want to start back at it again. Plus, I always tend to buy the same stuff and then I end up getting bored with what I eat. Hopefully this will help keep things interesting for my palate and help me become more confident in the kitchen so that I can be a fabulous wifey in the future ;).
My finance goal is basically just to really work on keeping my spending at a minimum this semester…but also not so minimum that I can’t enjoy my last few months in Boston. Ultimately I want to have enough money in my savings account at the end of the semester so that when I move back home and have to complete my 6 months of interning, I won’t have to completely rely on my parents for everything!
Looks like I’ll be utilizing Tina’s post about achieving goals that she wrote last week :D.
I hope you all have a great day!!
What is your favorite part about a shower? (Any type of shower- baby, wedding, etc.)
Are you a goal oriented person? What helps you remember and keep track of your goals and progress?
