Welp, I’m officially a year older.  If I had a dollar for every old joke Carl made this weekend I could buy myself enough drinks to drown my sorrows.  His day will come.  Overall it was a fun weekend of thrift shopping, eating, and my very first Nascar race.  I must say, I don’t understand Nascar.  High fives for everyone who enjoys it, I just can’t find the enjoyment.  Carl and I did make some great flea market finds that I can’t wait to share with you all later this week!

P.S. It’s the last day to use HAPPYBIRTHDAYKATIE to get 25% off all sponsorship spots + consultations! (It was supposed to end Monday, but I’m slacking on taking down the code.)

This week’s wishes

Do the laundry.  Carl had every intention of doing the laundry for me for my birthday, only it didn’t happen.  Oh well.  I had a lovely birthday weekend with him so I can’t complain.  Though I might feel a bit differently when I’m doing the 5 million loads of laundry later this week.

Pack my lunches.  I’m finally sticking to a budget and to keep it up I need to not eat out as much.  It’s difficult because I don’t have a great kitchen set up right now, but I’m making it work.

No Coke.  I’ve been cutting down on soda and have been pretty successful so far.  I cut back from a million a day to one or two.  I think I’m ready to take that number to zero.

What are your goals for the week?


  • I need need need to get better at packing my dinners for work. It sucks eating the leftover rice, beans and queso at 10 o clock at night right before we close the place down. What are your tips?!?!

    • Packing food. Ugh. I almost hate that I put it on my list, it means I actually have to acknowledge my highly likely failure. I’m definitely improving though and gathering tips. I think I’m gonna do a tip post on it soon! (Once I actually figure it out for myself haha.)

  • I want to order my sleeping habits …. very odd sleeping habit and ruined routine

    • A messed up routine/sleeping habit is the absolute worst. It takes way more effort than it should to get back into a routine. Now that I’m working earlier and having a more difficult commute, I need to get to sleep earlier and it’s been tough. Good luck with finding your routine!
