MANTRA for the WEEK:

I love lists Friday // shutterbean

What about you? What do you have going on this week??

  • Megan

    1st day of school! I have a cake in the oven for snack time, and lunch packing was successful this morning. But…I REALLY need to get my head together for the new year. The framework feels very fragile. 🙂
    -make outline for the week
    -plan shop launches for Fall
    -walk in the mornings
    -plan meals for next 2 weeks

    (I would not be mad at you for doing a school lunch post.)

  • Jocelyne

    Yes please to the school lunch post! In my area, the kids have a balanced day lunch (two equal lunch periods) and that makes planning a little tricky. By the end of last year, he was eating almost the same thing every day. He deserves a more inspiring lunch.

  • Whitney

    Please do the lunch post!

  • Jennie

    I’ve been in summer mode and so not on top of my intention game. This week I’m back at it:
    Schedule a physical
    Call two preschools for my son
    Put a birthday card in the mail
    Less TV and more reading at night!

  • Julie

    Been finished with college for exactly five years, but I’m taking an art history class at a local university just for fun this semester. Starts tonight and I’m feeling actually so nervous. Haha. So my number one goal this week is to…go to that class and have a good time at it!

  • Natalie

    You crossed so many things off last week’s intentions even though you were on VACATION! Hooray for you, but I hope you got to relax!

  • lisahoopz

    Hi Tracy -please please pretty please do a packed lunch post. My son goes back to school in the first week of September and this will be his first year of packed lunches (children in the UK get free hot school lunches for the first few years of school, so we made the most of those while they were in place) and I’m dreading the monotony of preparing the same thing day on day. Any help is gratefully received.

    I love these intentions for the week posts, my favourite thing on the internet xxx

  • Jess

    Double YAS for lunch blog post

  • Tempa

    I’m also voting YES for the school lunch post! Love seeing what other moms pack for their kiddos!

  • Rachel

    Please do a school lunch post! My son is starting kindergarten soon and I need inspiration! I loved it when you posted pictures of your sons lunches!

  • Chellie

    YES to the school lunch post!!! YESSSS PLEASEEEE!!! WOOOO!!

  • Katie

    Echoing the pleas for a school lunch post! So many people post pinwheels and kabobs… what else is there? Is there more inspiration?
