Thought Bullets


  • I was going to post pictures of some of the sewing projects I’ve been working on lately, but I ran out of time this weekend to take pictures and actually write something up.  Normally when I fall behind on writing posts I would just work on it on Monday morning before Wyatt gets up, but it so happens that Wyatt and I have about a million places to go today too.  So instead, you all get bullet points!  I’ll try to get going and post about my projects later this week, or next week though.  I’ll bold the important things for you skimmers.


  • On Saturday we went to my cousin’s 16th birthday party, and then on Sunday we went to church and then I met this girl in real life (we first met in blogland through our mutual friend, Danae, and we had a really nice visit).  When I actually type that out it doesn’t sound like we did a whole lot, but the weekend actually felt pretty packed.


  • I have to admit that some of the time I might normally spend blogging I instead spent reading this book.  I’m really enjoying it so far – October Sky is one of my favorite movies, and the book makes me want to watch it again.  But now I have to wait until I finish the book!



  • Remember those New Year’s goals I was forced to make for work?  Well, I just found out  that our whole office is going shopping together in July, and my boss is going to give us money for each goal we’ve completed to shop with!  Ah!  So now I’m really trying to get going on my reading and such so I can get all my reward money.  I told her that I’ve already failed on a couple of my on-going goals (I haven’t walked with Wyatt every week or cleaned my car every month), but she said that as long as I improve by July I can still count it.  So now I’m focused.  I used to think that I didn’t need outside motivators to get things done, but they sure don’t hurt.


  • Speaking of those goals, I actually have been drinking more water lately, and I feel pretty good about it.  My secret weapons have been those water flavoring drops I mentioned before, and lemons and limes.  I love water with lemons and limes, and I tried mint leaves in my water last summer and I loved that too.  I think I need to try a mint leaf/citrus combination though (and maybe put it in my own bottles too, like this):


Doesn’t that just make you want to snatch one of those drinks up?  I must try this during the summer to help with my “more water” goal.


  • I finally went on a big grocery shopping trip after slacking on it for a few months.  It feels good to have the cupboards stocked.


  • Over the weekend I also discovered this website, Design Seeds – and I went a little crazy with my ideas for color schemes. My current color scheme is kind of like these citrus tones, with a little yellow thrown in. I like it, but I’m just ready to switch it up a little bit.


Eventually I would like to get a new coffee table set for my living room (the one I have isn’t really what I’m going for, I just bought it when we were first married because it was cheap).  And then once I have a new coffee table set to warm it up a bit, I think I want to re-do some of the details with this asparagus color scheme:


You like? I really like these colors together, and this scheme would go with my couch.

  • I could go on, but I’ll end there.  It’s Sunday night and the hubs and I are getting ready to watch this movie:


Yes, we watch kid movies.  They are usually our favorites, actually.  I liked the other two, so I’m hoping this one is good too.

Happy Monday!

P.S. Remember those polls I did last summer to get to know my readers better? Well, I have decided to re-instate the weekly and/or biweekly reader polls. It was fun for me to get to know more about you, and summer seems to be a better time for me to do these! Check out the new one in my sidebar and pick the answer that best describes you! The poll ends next Monday, and I'll post the results here soon.

I am the first to admit I need outside motivators to complete things sometimes, can someone please offer me shopping money? lol

I love that color scheme, since moving into this house I have actually developed a color scheme and I LOVE IT. Our house feels so cohesive now! Well, it will once I finish painting...

I'm loving that you get money for completing your goals...nothing better than a shopping trip for a motivator!

& speaking of motivation, those water bottles would certainly entice me to drink more water!
