Intentions for the Week:


Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday, friends!

This weekend was fun AND productive. We had a date night! Cooper had a sleepover and we went out to dinner. It was nice to have some quality time and no solid plans.  A lazy morning just the two of us was needed after having baseball two weekends in a row.

On the productive frton, I helped my friend clean out her pantry:

The best part is that I WAS ON A ROLL. Working in someone else’s space made me go on a cleaning/organizing binge when I got home. We cleaned out the garage, cleaned the inside of my car, organized the kitchen and started laundry. It feels so good to start the week with a clean car.

Note to self: add vacuum out the car to Cooper’s chore list. He rocked it!

Need a project done? See if you can barter with your friend! My friend is going to help me with gardening now. Need to get focused? Set a 20-minute timer and challenge yourself.

This week I am headed to New Mexico for a wedding.

    In Santa Fe there is a small chain of restaurants called The Flying Star Cafe. The food is creative, healthy and so yummy! The decor is a little retro Jetsons, I couldn’t love it more. They make a great non-alcoholic drink called The Red Stuff and it is so good! It’s Red Zinger tea with some juices and some magic and now I’m so sad I’m not going too. Enjoy!

  • Carly

    I used to live in Santa Fe and think about the food all the time! Tune Up Cafe is a favorite favorite for brunch/lunch, they have the best chile smothered breakfast burritos. Cafe Pasquals is an institution. Coyote Cantina rooftop for margaritas. The Pantry is great for New Mexican fare and more margs! Enjoy your trip. Non-food things to do if you have time – Meow Wolf and Ten Thousand Waves.

  • Kelly

    It’s been many years since I’ve been in Santa Fe, but I always say that if I could go anywhere I wanted for every meal, it would be Santa Fe. For fancy food, you should go to Santacafe. For more classic Mexican go to Los Potrillos. It was right by our hotel and we went several times. As I remember, every meal we ate in Santa Fe and Taos was fantastic! We also took a cooking class at the Santa Fe School of Cooking and got restaurant recs from the chef teaching the class. Have a great time!

  • Jessie

    Happy B’day Cooper!!

  • Mary

    Drink more water (balance out all the coffee)
    Use less plastic (bring reusable coffee cup)
    Less sugar
    Practice Spanish past tense (use it in a sentence in conversation)
    Practice productivity in 25 minute increments

  • Erica

    So jealous you’ll be in Santa Fe. It’s one of my favorite places I’ve lived. If I were going there, I’d be sure to eat at Vinaigrette and Tune Up Cafe and get a coffee from Holy Spirit Espresso.

  • Laine

    I went to Santa Fe with my bookclub and we had a blast. If you have time, the 10,000 Waves japanese spa near Taos was a total hit! I mean, private soaking tubs, massages, awesome Japanese dinner. Total bliss.

  • Heather

    Santa Fe food recommendations:
    Cafe Dolima
    Bumblebee Grill
    Il Vicino
    Cafe Pasquals
    La Choza
    Paper Dosa

  • Heather

    Oh and I forgot:
    Counter Culture
    Tia Sophias

    For non-food activities I agree with the above, Meow Wolf and Ten Thousand Waves are great. I’d add the IAIA Museum, the Georgia O’Keefe Museum, and the Pecos National Monument. It’s an awesome town- hope you have a blast!
