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!

We are on week 16 of 2019. This weekend was filled with baseball and also socializing.  I spent time last week doing some spring cleaning and it feels so good to welcome friends into my home. It has me excited for eating dinner outdoors in the next few months. Although the BUGS. I forgot about the bugs.

I need to make more plans for BBQs soon.

This week we have a lot of work to get done before Cooper goes on break. I hope by the end of the week to be finished with my TO -DO lists so I can spend some time recharging. I’ve been sick with a cold this week and all of the time out & about and working has worn me down. I’m ready for a break from the school and work routine for a bit.  A reset and a fresh perspective are much needed right now.

Now that we know what’s up with our taxes, I feel like I can breathe.

The news isn’t great, but I know it’s one less thing to worry about.  Knowing what we’re up against makes all the difference.

It’s WEEK 16. Let’s do this.

One thing at a time. First, let’s figure out our intentions for the week!

    Thanks again for the meal inspo, Tracy! I’ve picked mushroom spinach baked rice and cinnamon french toast muffins to make for us this week 🙂

    Have a good week – and enjoy the break from school and work next week. We have easter break too and we’ll be at the north sea and I’m so looking forward to it!

    ALL of these recipes are hitting the spot! slight note – i think you’re missing a link for the cinnamon toast muffins – but seriously – everything sounds so good! and is that a shrinky dink towards the end!??!?! MAJOR inspo! love these posts- always helps me feel proactive about my week. Curious if you’re a Brook Castillo fan? She just had a podcast about tearing up a to do list and it was pretty fascinating. I always feel like your lists are so long and wonder how you get it all done – today i wondered if you used the technique she describes (long story short – she plugs the to do list into her calendar). 🙂 LOVE your blog.
