Day 4…Seven Wants and Movie Time!


August 25, 2011

Easy peasy…I “want” things all the time–you know world peace, that fabulous pair of boots that are perfect for fall–haha! Not this time, though, I am sticking to genuine wants and things that are important {not that world peace isn’t important, though these wants are ones I hope will come true!}

1. I want to be able to communicate better–if someone upsets me or makes me mad, I don’t confront the issue…I try to just let it go. Not the healthiest thing to do to one self so I need to make a better effort of that because I am the only one who can change that.
2. I want to garden and make my thumb green! I am so envious of friends and family who have thriving gardens and Jeff and I both agree we want to have a garden of our own come next summer…peppers, cucumbers, watermelons, lettuce…then the fun in the kitchen can really start.
3. I want to be able to travel more–that is a goal that Jeff and I have for ourselves and especialyl back to Europe…italy is calling my name, but that will have to wait for a bit. However, before the completion of 2011, we’re heading to Hilton Head and New York City so a few fun trips lined up!
4. I want to be a Mom–if I can be half as good of a mother as my Mom has been to me, I’d consider my life an absolute success…I look up to her more than she’ll ever know.
5. I want to not sweat the small stuff…I want to be OK with the bed not being made or the laundry not always put up. That’s the type-A/OCD person in me, but it seems to be that the little details always get the best of me. I need to think about the “big picture” in life and be happy =)
6. I want to be able to eat whatever I want and not feel guilty about it…easier said than done, right?
7. I want to be the best person I can be. I always want to strive to do my best–at work, at home, with friends, etc. I want to always try my hardest and not ever give up, even when we have “those” types of days that tend to get the best of us. I want to volunteer more, give more, and help more.

It’s Thursday friends..the light at the end of the work tunnel is so close I can taste it. Last night, us girls got together at Meg’s house for dinner {yummy lasagna roll ups–great job hostess!} and to watch Something Borrowed, based one of my all-time favorite books…the storyline followed the book pretty losely and we loved the movie–hoping there is going to be a sequel that lines up with Something Blue in the not-to-distant future. Hope you have a fantastic day.

    I have a lot of the same wants and goals 🙂 I love all of Emily Giffin books and I can't wait to see that movie!

  2. Absolutely love the new blog makeover! And I agree eating whatever we want without guilt would be amazing. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

  3. I cant wait to see this movie!

  4. Nicole says:

    Love your wants. I share several of them! Especially the type A/OCD stuff. My boyfriend is the COMPLETE opposite, so plenty of our "fights" are over my type A personality… I am trying to relax on some things so that I can enjoy life more!

  5. Catherine says:

    wow! your want list is wonderful! i am enjoying following your 10 day challenge answers 🙂

  6. I love your "wants" – it's the wants we should all have!

    I really want to see that movie!!

  7. Mrs. Winston says:

    I completely agree about not sweating the small stuff. Why is that so hard sometimes?!

  8. Mrs. SE says:

    Great list- I agree w/you on a lot of them! Being a mom is my #1 want in life, and I can't wait for Ryan and I to take that step. Any trying not to sweat the small stuff is something that I attempt to work on every day, but I still have to clean the house before we go on vacation and unpack the minute I get home from a trip.
