I have been so extremely busy lately, but I wanted to get these up before the week was over.

Can't you tell how much he loves having my camera in his face?  I have to take what I can get sometimes.  It was this or one with his hand covering his face.  Gotta love this kid!

There are no photos of Adrian this week because every time I tried to take one he covered his face.  Maybe he will be in a picture-taking mood next week.

We had some extra time at home last night, so I helped Heaven make Rice Krispies Treats with M&M's.

Also thankful that whatever caused Heaven's illness this morning has passed.

Weekly Wishes #13 - Goodbye January, Hello February!

Hello, friends! Well there went January.  I know we have the same 24 hours every single day, but there are days they seem to go by faster than others.

We had a fantastic, laid back weekend although we had more fun playing bingo on Sunday than watching the game.  That's Heaven's winning card above.

Last week's wishes:

* Journal every day - 5 out of 7 days and still going
* Make a study plan for Japanese - Learn 5 Hiragana characters per week then move on to Katakana
* Gather materials to participate in A Month of Letters - Done! I plan to send more postcards than letters this year to make sure I get something out every day.
* Clean up my Bloglovin feed - I have not done this.
* Look through my stack of magazines for images to add to my vision board - I went through my magazines but didn't find much.  I'm going to take my sister's old magazines when I go to her salon this weekend.

January wishes:
* Start organizing my digital photos - I have started but still have work to do
* Work on getting up at 5:00 a.m.  I now get up at 6:00 on most days, so I will start by setting my alarm for 5:50 for a week, then 5:40 and so on - I have been getting up at 5:30 a.m.
* Plan meals in advance - I am consistently planning our meals every week, and it has made my life so much easier.
* Start Project Life even if it's in the middle of a week - Nope
This week's wishes:
* Help Heaven choose a Valentine's Day project

* Clean up my Bloglovin feed

* Try at least one new recipe

February wishes:
* Work on getting up at 5:00 a.m.
* Start making a list of family members and birthdays for the calendar.  There are a lot of us.
* Plan a date night with Phil on a night other than Valentine's
* Make a skirt for the Fearless February Sew-Along

* Lose 6 pounds
