The Weekly Chase #12

5 Nov

I love Monday’s – especially since it is when I get to set up my goals for the world to see and hold myself accountable!

Family/Marriage/Mothering Goals:

Read to Abby her Bible every night for school

Practice memory verses with kids every night

Read 1 storybook/chapters from a book each night to the girls

Write Nick a love note

Take kids to play once a week  *This one is already scheduled for Friday as we are going to have game night at a friends’ house and they have kids that our kids love!*

Personal Goals:

Start reading again

Schedule exercise each day

Drink More Water *As of so far today (4:00 Alaska Time) I have not drank any – not starting off so good, huh?)

Homemaking Goals:

Make 1 new recipie this week

1 Load of laundry everyday

***Side note*** I had wanted to do some challenges this week and will be starting them today – but cannot really explain my goals other than to do them!
 
What you got?

So It Is Saturday…

27 Oct

So it is Saturday and I am the first one awake and the silence is nice.  But alas it doesn’t last for long. Two small children are around and the cartoons must now come on so that I can continu to think through today’s plans.  Ahhh, the mom lessons I have learned. 

Today I am going to swing by he library to get the study book for the MAT – yes, I have to take a standardizedd test 🙂 

I need to stop by Barnes and Noble to spend my gift card 🙂 – I think I just am going through withdrawls since we have not gone once a week since school started.  I love that place.

We have to venture to WalMart or more likely the PX to get white tights for Ryley’s costume and Pink lipstick for Abby’s costume – as the Fall Festival is tonight and these are must have’s apparently. Pictures will follow after tonight.

I am going to meet up with another pregnant military wife and we are going to take my kids to the community center here on base so they can play while we walk on the treadmills to get some exercise going. 

I need to finish all my homewok today at some point as I don’t really want to ruin a Sunday with Abnormal Psych homework.

Tonight is the Fall Festival at school and I am actually excited about this!  Since we are still relatively new to living here and walking around outside in below freezing temperatures doesn’t sound fun at all – I am thankful that the school puts something on indoors.  Plus I can give them a little more freedom in a gym as opposed to a street.

I am going to treat me and the girls today because I want to. I want to eat frozen yogurt from Menchies.  I want a cheesesteak from the foodcourt – or some popeyes chicken.  I just realy want it despite all the comments that may come from it. I just don’t care today.

Last night the girls and I carved pumpkins on APU campus while the haunted house went on next door.  We had fun (I carved and they played) while people couldn’t finish the haunted house. Success on all parties putting on these events.

I now want some watermelon. Strange I know – but that is the thought I am leaving you with!

 

Now That’s What I Call Wind!

5 Sep

We had wind at over 140 mph.

BOOM.

Now back to your regular programming….including me making lunch since we are all home!

WANTED: Cute, Sleek, Warm Workout Gear for Alaska!

10 Jul

Wanted – Cute, sleek, warm workout gear to keep this active girl warm yet still cute in the weather of Alaska – can you help direct me to that place?

I am looking for a place with affordable, cute workout gear! I am stuck here in a place where online is my best friend – IF they ship to Alaska. I have found that there is plenty of warm weather outdoor gear – but not all of it is conducive to running and being active!

Typical temperature around here is seeming in the 50-low 60 range (nothing past 61 from what I can tell!) and I have clothes for 80 degree and higher weather. I know that cotton is not what I want – so that is where I will begin!

I want sleek and light weight because obviously I don’t want to be  weighed down!  Nothing bulky, but room for keys, pepper spray, and a phone. I want to be warm and not worry about over heating. Can I have pants that will keep me warm but not make me look obscene in the crotch region? 

Something other than white, black, or gray would be fantastic since those are the three colors most found up here. White goes for fresh snow, gray goes for the 2-3 day old snow, and black for week old snow 🙂

If you can help me find a place that will ship to Alaska, have cute and functional purpose, keep me warm and cute colors – Please let me know!!!
