weekly wishes 005


Weekly Wishes, created by Melyssa from The Nectar Collective, is a place to share your weekly goals. 
Join & see what we achieve!

You guys. We leave for Europe in two days. TWO DAYS! I am so excited. & SO nervous.

Last week my goals were to:

1. Get ready for a garage sale. We are so thankful for the donations we received for our garage sale. (This was my favorite donation by far.) The donations truly helped. The garage sale was exhausting but I'm happy we hosted one. Some extra cash before we leave really helps. 

2. Sew headbands. This goal was definitely not accomplished. I really didn't have time to sit down and sew. Any of you sew? Taking out the sewing machine and starting a project can be just so time consuming. 

3. Get ready for Europe. Just as I suspected with my to do list. The second I checked something off, it grew again. But I feel that we got A LOT done the week before we leave. Still working on it, but it's almost done. 

My goals for this week are to:

1. Take this flight like a champ. We are leaving Tuesday afternoon. We will arrive in England in Wednesday morning. tiiiimetraaavel. I will be completely honest with you all, I have never left America. I'm not afraid of flying (fortunately) but going to a whole new part of the world is a foreign concept to me. & just logistics of airports and public transportation is kind of daunting for me. Fortunately the people I'm traveling with are pros. ;)

2. Take a chill pill. There is an attraction in Disney's California Adventure where you take a little quiz to determine which Disney character is most like you. One question I always remember is, "Do you like to plan things out? Or see what happens?" I am definitely a "plan things out" type of girl, but I want to be more of a "see what happens" kind of girl. So for this trip I want to be more relaxed with our plans. I don't want to feel anxious about not seeing all of the sites or not being at the right place at the right time. This trip should be more about relaxing.

Wish me luck with my goals! I hope I can achieve them.
What are your goals for this week?

  1. Don't be nervous (well, you can be nervous if you can't help it...I'm a nervous person 24/7 haha), but I'm saying don't be nervous because I know you are going to have such an amazing time on your trip! And, on the bright side, your first stop is England therefore no communication barriers, so it will ease you into your trip nicely :-) xx

    Girl, I used to have an Etsy shop where I sold headbands. I TOTALLY get what yo mean about the sewing machine. It's SUCH a task...and it makes the whole project seem that much more daunting. Also, I love your "take a chill pill" goal. I am in the same spot. I'm SUCH a planner, and I embrace that in a lot of situations, but I'm trying to be better about letting things go, and knowing when something needs planning and when it doesn't.


    Anyway, have SO MUCH FUN. I can't wait to see pictures from Europe! Also.. I think I need to join in this weekly wishes thing...

  7. How cool that you will be traveling to Europe! I am sure you will love it and the weather is getting warmer so at least you are coming at the right time. Whereabout in England will you be traveling to? If London, let me know I have loads of tips on where to go and what to see (I used to live there!) or if you find yourself in Switzerland I also have loads of tips and ideas (I live in Zurich!). All the best with your travels, looking forward to reading all about it.

  8. How fun! I am so jealous! My husband and went in May of 2013. My husband is British so we stayed with his family which was great. It is funny how similar and different America and England are. Have a fabulous time!

  13. The day before we left, I was so nervous but the day of I was so excited! & yes, landing in England helped because of the (non) language barrier. When we arrived in Paris, the language barrier was very frustrating. :(

  14. I love Weekly Wishes! Unfortunately it's difficult to manage while traveling. I will definitely return to it when I get back to California. I hope you participate! It's really helpful!

  15. I'm glad you can relate with the headband/sewing thing. If I had a space dedicated to sewing it MIGHT be a different story. I'm not going to make promises. Haha.


    Taking the chill pill goal has been a little difficult lately, but I'm working on it!


    More pictures of Europe are coming! It's been so difficult to blog. Better late than never, though!
